Our Bathroom Makeover!

When Matt and I bought our house in February 2011 we bravely tackled several do-it-yourself projects like removing a laundry chute, replacing a toilet, painting, and creating a vegetable garden.  One project that we did not tackle was our ugly, pink and black master bathroom.  The bathroom – well, the whole master “suite,” to be honest – was really unattractive.  All of the trim was painted gloss black, the walls were purple, the tiles were deep fuschia, and the tub, toilet, and sinks were black.  Oh, and let’s not forget the brassy gold faucets.  Can you tell why I didn’t like this bathroom?!

The master bathroom was SO bad that we decided to bring in professional help.  We made some initial floor plan designs, settled on a rough budget and found a contractor that we liked.  Demolition began in late April (it was great to see that black toilet go!) and the whole project took about 8 weeks.

We chose a fairly contemporary style with a neutral gray color palette, natural stacked stone cladding on one wall, a frameless glass shower, and white vessel sinks with sleek chrome fixtures.  We’re thrilled with how the bathroom turned out so I thought I would share a few photos here on my blog!

My dream bathroom! This is the view from the shower.

Our shower floor is covered in smooth black river rocks. They feel great under tired bare feet!

Our huge shower! The dimmable light in the shower contains a hidden exhaust fan.
