The second big project we took on was the renovation of the master bathroom. The problem with the bathroom was that there were two vanities and no bathtub. A wall with a door separating the vanity space and the shower/toilet darkened the area, so light was only getting through a small window. Half of the bathroom had carpet in it (YUCK) and the other hand had yellowed tile. The lack of door to the master bedroom concerned me because of privacy issues, plus the no bath was almost a deal breaker for me.
We decided to put a soaking tub and separate shower, plus replace the double vanity. The permits were pulled and then the space was gutted all the way down to the studs.
Once the room was torn up we were left with a shell in which we could execute the new master bathroom design. The bathroom tub and shower were framed out as well as the pony wall between the shower and bath. Originally we designed two point walls but we ended up pulling one down. The wall closed up the area and it was early enough in the process that we could remove it.
The color palette for this space was white and gray accents (surprise, surprise) but we wanted to have a fresh relaxing feel every time we walked in. I’ll be back with our choices for materials but suffice it to say, the room was this torn up for about three weeks! Issues came up in the kitchen so we had to halt work on the bathrooms which set back our timeline. What what renovation actually happens on time right??
