In phase one of our home remodel, it was probably the master bathroom that underwent the biggest transformation. When we bought the home, we simply felt lucky to have a master bath (and a walk-in closet) in a home of this era. They were part of the series of unfortunate additions that had been added to the 1940s home through the years. In the bathroom’s case, it meant a large, choppy room dominated by a blush pink jetted tub! Seriously.
In our remodel, we took the bathroom down to studs, opened it up and raised the ceiling. This gave us a clean slate to create a modern space with vintage flair! I had so much fun choosing fixtures, finishes and tile and designing the custom cabinets and tile work.
The ledge behind the pedestal tub serves dual purposes. It’s a place to set your glass of wine while you soak (or – if you live in the real world – your razor & soap, or your child’s bath time Lego collection). It’s also a place to hide you plumbing! Sneaky.
Hex-dot tile, white bead board, and a stunning pedestal tub pay homage to the home’s era, while custom built-ins provide plenty of needed storage. There’s nothing better than being able to design your own custom cabinetry to fit your space. Every inch was maximized for ultimate storage!
And I just love bold, interesting tile! Maybe someday I’ll grow tired of this colorful Mediterranean tile, but until then, I get an extra dose of bliss each time I step into our shower!
