The New Master Bathroom

The remodel of the masterbath was, by far, the messiest, dirtiest and most aggravating of the three rooms.  As I planned what I wanted, I considered that I'm currently planning to live in this house until I croak.  So, I wanted to replace the oversized garden tub and a walk-in shower so as I get less mobile it would be easy to get in and out.  Removing the tub and relocating the drain involved removing two foot deep concrete.  Do you have any idea how much dust is generated when you use a jackhammer to do that in your house?  I'll be continuing to clean up that dust for months to come.  But it was so worth it.

I also wanted to take advantage of the giant 4' X 5' glass block window in the shower to really make a bright, clean looking bathroom.  I am extremely pleased with the results.  I was so excited for the work to get started that I only took a couple of "before" photos.  Just think back to 1988 builder grade bathrooms and you have the picture.

In the '90's I replace the vanity top with marble and put travertine on the floors.  The mirror covers the entire wall.

The garden tub had the old fashioned glass sliders.
While the remodeling is done, the decorating is not.  I plan to frame four of my travel photos and then match the towels to a blue in the photos.   Here's the 99% done master bath:

I ordered the vanity from Amazon.  I changed out the pulls that came with it for "crystal" knobs.  All the hardware is brushed nickel.  The paint color is "Gentle Rain" aka grey.  The light fixture came from Lampsplus.com.  The counter top is carrara marble.
The floor is also carrara marble, unpolished in a herringbone pattern.  It is the same in the shower and on the floor.  My goal was to have something that was easy to clean, looked good and wouldn't be slippery.  I'm not sure about easy to clean the rest worked out.

I LOVE this shower.  Floor to ceiling beveled white subway tiles.  An accent stripe of glass tile.  A semi-framed shower door from Home Depot.  It gets so much natural light it was hard to get a photo.  And, the pool is on the other side of the window so in the evening when I have the pool light on, the shower has a lovely blue glow.

You can't see it from here but there's a double shower head.  Good water pressure, plenty of room and light.  The perfect shower for me.


Clean looking and bright.  I'm absolutely thrilled with the results.
