We had a small bathroom attached to our master bedroom. It was about 5 ft x 5 ft and had a sink, small corner shower, toilet and that is about it. It was really a one person bathroom, but we didn’t have to share it with the kids or visitors ( like in our old house), so we were content. 

Fast forward 5 years and we began meeting with a designer for our remodel. I had everything mapped out in my mind and we were going to get a small update to the bathroom. By removing our hallway pantry we would be able to improve the size of the shower and give it a face lift and that is where it ended.

When we had our second meeting with the designer he threw me for a loop. He had created a new entryway into our house and moved our staircase. This blew my mind, I had never thought of this before. It opened up a whole new world of possibilities. With the stair location moved we were able to get a full master bathroom remodel, a walk in closet, and a pantry! I was so excited to get started designing it.

First, we wanted a large tub. We opted for a tub without jets to save money on the actual tub as well as with installation. We found the Mirabelle tub and love it. It is extremely roomy; extra long and wide and under $1000.  We were in love with it from the first time we sat in it at the showroom! If you have a Ferguson Showroom nearby, they usually have these tubs you can check out.

Next, we decided on tile. We have white subway tile in the kitchen and guest bathroom and love it. This project had a larger scale and needed a a bigger tile to avoid looking too busy. Large pearl gray 4×12 inch subway tiles were chosen to add warmth to the space.  The tile was used floor to ceiling along the tub and shower to create a really clean look.

The tiles laid out at Lowes as we are trying to decide.

We paired the subway tile with a pebble stone tile for the shower floor and porcelain floor tile for the rest of the bathroom.  They all go really well together bringing in whites, grays, and tans.

The next item of business was the vanity. We ordered our cabinets (kitchen, laundry, and this bathroom) through Lowe’s custom cabinets. The bathroom cabinets are Kraftmaid and stained Husk Oak.

We love the space and storage they provide. All of the drawers are soft close and add a lot of storage. The brown stain pairs well with the tan veining in the floor tile.

The cabinets are completed with Silestone Quartz in Lyra. We saved money by using the same counter tops in the bathroom and kitchen. Silestone Quartz in Lyra has beautiful gray veining. In addition to the countertop we also used it to surround the tub and the ledge in between the shower and tub.

We were able to use the Quartz as the bathtub surround because we had them cut it into 4 pieces. If you have them cut the tub out of the middle of a piece of quartz then you are wasting a huge piece. The four joints are almost unnoticeable. Using the Lyra Silestone instead of porcelain tile gives the bathroom a high-end feel.

Next, is the toilet. You may think that there isn’t much to be said about a toilet, but you would be wrong. I have now installed this American Standard toilet in all 4 bathrooms in the house. Instead of seeing the piping in the rear of the toilet, you have a flat surface with the pipes hidden inside. This is a dream come true when it comes to cleaning up after 4 boys.  No more cleaning pee out of the nooks and crannies of the pipes.

Note, the toilet is a bit of a pain to install because the bolts are hidden inside. It makes the install a two person job, but the result is so worth it!

Lastly, we have the accessories. The mirrors are Pottery Barn Vintage Pivot Mirrors  in antique bronze. Thankfully I ordered them right at the beginning of the remodel because they were on back order for 5 months.

The faucets are from Lowes, found on clearance, but this one is similar. The shower head and and bathtub faucet are also both an oil-rubbed bronze finish.

The towel bars, hooks, handles, and toilet paper roll holder are all from Amazon.

Plastic amber bottle for soaps and shampoo.

Another accessory I use are these plastic amber bottles . I have them in every bathroom and the kitchen. Glass would be even prettier but with kids I can’t risk it. Even the plastic ones create a beautiful and clean look instead of having bottles with logos and advertising all over them. I use my trusty label maker to make sure that we know what is in them.

Labels stay on bottles, even when in the wet shower.

All of the accessories are in brushed bronze and go very well together, even though they came from different stores.

This bathroom is an oasis. The room is open, warm, and inviting. By putting in a sliding pocket door and leaving the closet open you do not lose any square footage with doors opening. The bathroom is a dream and we love it, excuse me while I go and soak in the tub.
