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.
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!
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!
