Spa inspired master bathroom renovation



I don't think there should be any rooms in your house that you just hate going into. I believe your home should be a haven and you should love being in any and all parts of it. I really did not like my master bathroom so I couldn't wait to do something about it. 

Both bathrooms in our house had carpet in them when we moved in last fall, wall-to-wall carpeting that had been installed in 2000. That was the main reason I dreaded going in there everyday. Old stained carpeting.

My vision for the master bathroom was to turn it into a spa-like bathroom...for me!  (Mr. H could use the guest bathroom.) This project was done before I joined the world of blogging but I wanted to share it with you because I enjoy the bathroom so much everyday.

This is what the bathroom looked like before.


                


What I wanted to do to create my spa bathroom:
1) REMOVE THE CARPET and install porcelain floor tiles
2) Get a new vanity with a double sink which meant we'd have to move the toilet over
3) Install new lights above the sink
4) Install a mirror above the sink
5) Replace all the wall tile
6) Refinish the tub and replace the faucet 

I wanted cool colors for a relaxing calm atmosphere. My color preferences were a bluish/greenish "spa" color, white, and gray. Here is what I finally found. This is my first attempt at a mood board (that's what they're called, right?) so bear with me!

1. Benjamin Moore Quiet Moments
2. Daltile 3 in. x 6 in. White Modular Wall Tile from Home Depot
3. Jeffrey Court Carrara Mix Mosaics 12 in. x 12 in. Marble Wall Tile from Home Depot
4. George Kovacs Wall Sconce in Brushed Nickel with White Fabric Shade from Amazon
5. White Double Bathroom Vanity with White Marble from home design outlet center
6. Economy Liona Tub Filler with Hand Shower from Signature Hardware
7. Calypso Azul Turquoise Rug from Caron’s Beach House
8. Palais 12in x 24in porcelain floor tile in gray from World of Tile

I did the design but we hired a general contractor for the construction. Here it is all put together! The mirror is not on the mood board because it was custom made for the space. I special ordered the frame from Hobby Lobby and then had the mirror cut at a local glass shop.


Since taking these "after" pictures, we have added a box for dried lavender on the wall for a heavenly scent (seen at the top of the post).  Mr. H made it for me out of a French wine crate. I love it so much that I made it my very first blog post here.

The bathroom is so relaxing and enjoyable now!

  16. MY GOODNESS your blog truly is GORGEOUS, then to see your bathroom renovation? Masterfully done, just stunning! I want to thank you for stopping by yesterday and for leaving a comment! It is always nice to know that someone who comes by is willing to leave a little note...

    I love your color choices for your blog and your bathroom. While I enjoy a gray/beige/white palate in my home, a light aqua or seafoam green is going to find a space in my house somewhere!!!

    Many thanks and wishes for a great weekend, and yes, I love that photo of la dame à Montmartre! Anita

    1. Thanks so much for your wonderful words about my blog and post, Anita! You don't know how much they mean to me! I also love gray, beige, and white and the idea behind the bathroom was that I would do the more permanent parts (tile, vanity) in those colors and the more changeable part (paint) in the blue/green color.

  26. OMGoodness! It's beautiful, Khammany!
    Thank you for visiting me yesterday!
    I once took a drawing class at night at a community college. Some people have a natural talent when drawing and painting. I had "the desire" to draw. When you have the desire, it takes practice, but eventually the magic happens.

    The watercolor experience is new for me. That little painting was my first attempt. I was hesitant to post it, but I thought...why not?
    I encourage you to try if you have the desire. Start playing with the colors of your new bathroom! Play and practice and play! You will find the magic!
