Master Bathroom Done…

16 Aug

When we were looking at the house initially we loved the floor plan of the master bathroom; it was spacious with large closets for each of us.  The vanities were evenly sized.  My husband complained that a lot of houses had bathrooms that catered to the women, meaning that one of the closets and one of the vanities was usually larger and somehow that one always ended up belonging to the wife!  In this house they’re equally sized.  We had a lot of work to do here though because the bathroom needed major updating.  The shower was large but the door to it was small and just did nothing for the look.  We were limited in being able to enlarge the door because there was plumbing for the dual shower heads on the vanity side which precluded us from doing a glass wall there and electrical for the closet on the other side so we were not able to glass anything but just the door.  We raised and widened the door opening by about a foot.  That’s all we could eke out, but at least it was something.  All the white tile was replaced with travertine and the shower was accented with a border of brown marble.  We put dark brown granite on the vanities so that it would pick up the brown vein in the travertine.  After the blog voting, the high-tech tub was ruled out and we went with a classic white jacuzzi bath (I do think that was the right decision!).  We replaced the light that was above the bath tub with a vintage chandelier that had been in my home where I grew up.  The matching one to this is in our butler’s pantry.  These chandeliers have been in my family for about three generations or so and hung in my childhood home, our previous house and now this house!  Here are the before and after pictures.
