Master Bathroom Reveal

The master bathroom had great bones but needed some freshening up! Read my design summary below to learn how I chose the finishes to create this master bathroom transformation.

Above is the master bathroom before we updated it. Much more dark and heavy than the airy and refreshing master bathroom retreat I was hoping for.

Lighting Fixtures: Galaxie Lighting
Faucets: Moen via Lowe's
Frosted Water Closet Door: Jeld-Wen
Vanity Mirror: TJ Maxx
Flooring Tile: Ceramic Faux Travertine
Cabinet Color: lacquer matched to Sherwin Williams Extra White
Hand Soaps: Pecksniff's via TJ Maxx
Towels: TJ Maxx

The master bathroom is one of the features that sold me on this house. It is very spacious and had all of the amenities I was looking for. With our modest renovation budget we did not have room to change the tile or major plumbing fixtures, like the bathtub. However, we were able to use what we had while still creating a light and refreshing space. 

We changed the paint color from a darker tan with sage undertones to Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray which is much more neutral and soothing. We painted the trim white instead of off-white to add contrast and match the cabinetry which we also had lacquered white. The cabinets were originally a dark cherry stain and having them painted white made a massive difference and made the room feel even larger.

The existing tile in the room is a ceramic tile that is manufactured to look like travertine. It really is an excellent ceramic product and almost fooled me! I totally thought it was the real deal. The tile is even prettier in person when you can see the detail. To coordinate with the existing tile we had crema marfil marble countertops installed for the vanity. It mimics the light tan tone of the faux travertine and has some white veining to compliment the cabinet color. We chose square sinks to match all of the straight lines in the room and also chose faucets that repeated the straight line theme as well. These faucets are one of my favorites from Moen. I purchased them from Lowe's.

Changing lighting is an inexpensive way to really breath new life into a room.  I found that I favor brushed or satin nickel with tan colors as opposed to a polished metal or iron finish. We purchased all of our new lighting for the home (with the exception of the pendants over the island) from Galaxie Lighting. Galaxy Lighting is located in Lindon, Utah but has a wonderful online presence. Their website is easy to use and has all of their inventory on it. It made it so easy to browse while at home (or let's be honest... I did most of my browsing at work. Oops!) and then compare prices to other online retailers and Galaxie will price match if you find a lower price! I had a wonderful experience working with them and would suggest them any day! You can find the lights we chose for the bathroom here.

That is basically all that we did to revamp the master bathroom! It was a relatively painless project that really paid off in the end with a stunning transformation.
