master bath re-do| the plan

master bath design board | home sweet blog

As promised, here is the design plan for our master bathroom re-do. The hexagon floor tiles are not part of phase 1… sadly those will have to wait, but I wanted to include them to give a picture of the full plan.

THE WALLS – BW has already painted the walls in Sherwin Williams Sea Salt. A light blue-ish grey that I’ve been obsessed with since I first saw it on Pinterest.

THE CABINETS – We are planning to paint the existing cabinets in a dark color. I was originally thinking a dark grey, but the color above was on the same paint chip as Sea Salt – it has some olive green undertones that I think could be really pretty. I’d also like to swap out the exiting hardware for something that is a little more traditional.

THE LIGHT FIXTURE – The light fixture is simple, but it is 100 times better than the existing lights and it matches the brushed nickel faucets and cabinet hardware I’ve picked out. The glass shades are clear so they will provide a lot of light.

THE SHOWER – We are planning to add subway tiles with dark grout around the top of the existing shower. Neither of us has ever done any tiling, but I think it’s a DIY we can tackle. The shower curtain we already have. I purchased it several months back from Pottery Barn outlet. We also plan to add a curved shower curtain rod.

THE WINDOW – There is currently a bamboo shade over the window which we will keep (mostly because it’s needed for privacy), but I’d love to add a inverted box pleat valance over the shade to bring in some color. I am torn when it comes to the fabric for the valence. There are 7-8 fabrics I’m considering. I plan on sharing them all later this week. Hopefully I’ll get some input that will help me to decide!

THE MIRROR – So rather than ripping out the giant builder grade mirror, we are planning to frame it out with MDF and crown molding to give it a more custom look. Something like this,

There are a few more bathroom details we have planned (including a $4 furniture find that we’ve had for months) which I’ll share as things move along. What do you think? Are we on the right track?

  1. Love it so much! I think the vanity color/wall color combo you have here is so fresh. We have white hex on our master bath floors. We had it put in shortly after we moved in, and the tiler did an awful job. 4 years later it’s about to get ripped out and replaced. Whenever you get around to it, make sure to watch the seams carefully! :) Anyway, unsolicited advice aside, I love your plan and am looking forward to seeing the progress!
