If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that we have been completing a massive, gut renovation over the past year. One room that resulted in the biggest transformation is the master bathroom. Originally, the master bathroom was tiny. It was not nearly big enough by today’s standards and in terrible condition. In fact, it was one of the rooms that prompted the renovation. The master bathroom was adjacent to a sunroom and small master closet. We were hopeful that we could steal some space from the sunroom to create a real master retreat. Here’s what we came up with.
Did I mention that the master bathroom was tiny? It had only a pedestal sink, a small, stand-up shower, and an ancient bathtub. (It was so small that it was nearly impossible to take a decent photo of it.) The best (or worst) part was that it was entirely pink. The sunroom was equally bad. It had dirty carpet, low ceilings, and no insulation. So, the sunroom was always 15-20 degrees warmer than the rest of the house. Take a look.
In thinking about the perfect en suite, we wanted to make sure that it felt spa-like. The master bedroom and bathroom are on the third floor of the home and we wanted to create a sanctuary, away from the chaos of daily life. To accomplish that, we chose neutral tones, a deep tub, and an enormous steam shower. Here are the pieces that inspired us.
As with any renovation, we ended up making some adjustments along the way. But, we are very pleased with the final product. It is a spa-like oasis that inspires relaxation. We love it, and we hope you do too.
