MASTER BATHROOM RENOVATION

by Kim Le

This post is a long time coming!!! We actually finished our master bathroom remodel almost one year ago but it took me a while to finish decorating it and take photos. When we bought our house last summer, we fell in love with the house but a few rooms needed updating and one of those rooms was the master bathroom. Compared to the rest of the house, the master bathroom was a bit small and felt cramped for two people. So we updated the bathroom into a bright, white and minimal space:lace and locks bathroom remodel, before and after bathroom, bathroom makeover, marble bathroom, white and gold bathroom, modern bathroom makeover, lace and locks home remodel

Here is a before photo of the space:

Even with my 24mm lens, I couldn’t get wider photos than these because that’s how small our master bathroom was. So the biggest change we made was extending the master bathroom by about 3 feet long. We wanted to widen it as well but it would be too much work moving around the plumbing. Our master bedroom was actually huuuge so lengthening the bathroom was an easy choice for us and the contractor simply moved the wall and added a doorway into our master closet (hopefully I can share photos of the master bedroom and closet on another post). It’s amazing how much space 3 feet added and now we didn’t feel cramped by walls, especially when sitting on the toilet =P. You can already see that I was able to take much wider photos.lace and locks bathroom remodel, before and after bathroom, bathroom makeover, marble bathroom, white and gold bathroom, modern bathroom makeover, lace and locks home remodel

To make the bathroom even bigger, we changed the cabinets to white which brightened the room completely. We used an online cabinet site called Cliq Studios for both our bathroom and kitchen cabinets. You save by using Cliq Studios because you buy factory direct and cabinets include an online designer. It was actually a really easy process and all we did was choose the finish we wanted (shaker cabinets), send in our measurements and our online designer suggested the cabinets we needed for the space. She was very patient with us and allowed us as many revisions as we wanted! The cabinets do take about 3-4 weeks to make.

I also love the marble countertop we chose for our double vanity. You can actually see in the photo below that the original wall is gone! You can see there’s now a door which leads to our master closet. Again this added so much space to the bathroom.lace and locks bathroom remodel, before and after bathroom, bathroom makeover, marble bathroom, white and gold bathroom, modern bathroom makeover, lace and locks home remodel

I had a hard time deciding on rectangular or round mirrors for above the vanity but I’m so glad I went with round gold mirrors as they look more modern and added some extra character to the space. Since the husband let me add so many gold fixtures, I added some black touches to keep it feeling sleek, minimal and modern.lace and locks bathroom remodel, before and after bathroom, bathroom makeover, marble bathroom, white and gold bathroom, modern bathroom makeover, lace and locks home remodel

As you can also see in the before photos, the spa tub in the bathroom made it feel a lot smaller. My 6’1″ husband definitely needed more space in the shower. lace and locks bathroom remodel, before and after bathroom, bathroom makeover, marble bathroom, white and gold bathroom, modern bathroom makeover, lace and locks home remodel

So we took out the tub and did a walk in shower. lace and locks bathroom remodel, before and after bathroom, bathroom makeover, marble bathroom, white and gold bathroom, modern bathroom makeover, lace and locks home remodel

We also took down all of the old wall tile and debated on subway tiles but ended up going with these large marble wall tiles to make the shower feel more sleek and modern. We had the tile go all the way to the top of the ceiling so the room appeared taller as well. lace and locks bathroom remodel, before and after bathroom, bathroom makeover, marble bathroom, white and gold bathroom, modern bathroom makeover, lace and locks home remodel

I love the in-wall shower shelf we ended up doing too – it saves on space inside the shower and now we don’t need to add a shower caddy. My favorite parts in the bathroom are the gold fixtures we found! Our glass door contractor also found the perfect shower door handle that matched our cabinet drawer pulls. By the way, I can’t believe how much fixtures costs! lace and locks bathroom remodel, before and after bathroom, bathroom makeover, marble bathroom, white and gold bathroom, modern bathroom makeover, lace and locks home remodel

Finally, I found this slim gold wall shelf to hang above the toilet. It fit the space perfectly and complimented the rest of the gold touches we had throughout.lace and locks bathroom remodel, before and after bathroom, bathroom makeover, marble bathroom, white and gold bathroom, modern bathroom makeover, lace and locks home remodel

I hope you enjoyed our master bathroom reveal! I hope to share more of the rest of the house soon, especially the kitchen which was our biggest renovation! Morning Lavender Cafe kept us busy the last 10 months but we hope to get the house finally finished before the baby comes!

I’m obsessed with your bathroom renovation! It’s gorgeous. A couple questions, where did you get the greenery in the vase, is it real or faux? Also, does the gold in the sconces match the faucets and mirror or are some of them antique brass and some gold? Those lights are gorgeous. I will likely buy them too, thanks for tagging everything.

Thanks for visiting my page! The greenery on the shelf is faux. I linked some of them! The gold is modern brushed gold. I got lucky and they match close enough even though they are not the same sources!
