Before & After: The Master Bathroom (Before, Progress, and Inspiration)

After eight years of living in our house, we have finally completed remodeled our master bathroom.  Master bathroom is probably not the term used by most modern homes to describe this bathroom.  It is the Master bathroom only because it is across the hall from the master bedroom and we are the only ones who use it.  The designer of this house planned a huge master bedroom.  Our master bedroom is larger than our living room and includes two nice sized walk in closets.  For some unknown reason though, a bathroom is not connected to this large space.  We had toyed with the idea of turning the office beside our bedroom into a bathroom but quickly discarded this idea because of the cost and we really did need an office.

Our master bathroom measures 7 feet 8 inches by 5 feet...a very small bathroom.

Here are the before pictures:

The tub and shower was our real eyesore (and sore spot) in our opinion.  This tub was a jacuzzi tub.  When it was originally installed, the installer was not careful to level the tub so whenever the shower was run, the water all ran onto the floor...even with the shower curtain tightly closed.  We tried hooks to keep the shower curtain tightly closed.  We even installed a guttter a long the edge of the tub to run the water back in.  All a short term solution to a huge problem.  In the end we decided to just use the tub and resigned to taking showers in the guest bathroom.

The Progress:

Demolition Day!

A small peak at the new work:

The Inspiration:

I love the beadboard and wider board on top.

 The color scheme is so bright and clean.

The shelf above the sinks...what a great idea!

A vessel sink! 

You can see more of this sink and the Tucker House Bed and Breakfast in Louisville, KY here.

In the next couple of days, I will post the after pictures.  Please check back soon.
