Let’s talk about our master bathroom, shall we? What to say about this space. Well, it’s dated. The 70’s called, it wants our bathroom back. Orangey oak cabinets aren’t the worst offenders, but they’re not doing anything to help, either. And because of the sink placement, only one top drawer opens.
But the cabinets aren’t the real problem. Oh no, the tile is. Not only in the looks department, but the shape they’re in. At the base of the shower, the tiles are separating from the wall.
Which means…water leakage. We all know that’s a bad situation. Of course we could fix just the problem areas, but where’s the fun in that? I mean, the whole bathroom needs an update. Super hot weather means we’re better off working indoors. So, tackling the master bathroom has been bumped up our to do list. Shower, get ready for a makeover.
Walls, prepare for a facelift.
And vanity mirror, you’ve gotta go. And finally we’ll get some paint around the light fixture.
Most exciting to me is adding the old clawfoot tub from the main bathroom below the window.
To accommodate the tub, we’ll shorten the vanity to one sink (two is unnecessary for us). And convert the swinging door to a pocket door.
We’re still in the early planning stages, but we’re discussing changing the layout of the shower. In my ideal world, we’d make this a full glass wall:
But it’s not realistic; where would we put our switches? And I’ve heard full glass showers are a pain in the arse to clean. Not to mention, spendy. We’re excitedly discussing plans and looking for materials.
What prompts you to start a remodel? Damage that needs fixing? Just sick of using/looking at a space? If you could choose one feature for your bathroom, what would it be? I’m most excited for a separate tub and shower. Especially because that tub is a clawfoot.
And to all US residents, Happy Independence Day! Hope you enjoy your long weekend!
