Before & After: Master Bath Remodel


eHow Home Blog

Even before I officially took ownership of my current home, it was clear that the master bath was in serious need of a complete overhaul. Not only was the 1960’s motif not quite my cup of tea, but with a plumbing malfunction underneath the toilet, leaking shower pan (complete with rotted subfloor) and showerhead that was 6 inches too short for my 5’9″-self, it was clear this space was past due for an intense remodel.

Time to get to work! First up, some serious demo. This bathroom was taken to the studs and once the subfloor and shower pan were replaced, white subway tile filled the shower and white octagonal tiles covered the bathroom floor.

Once tiled, next up came the vanity. The original bathroom had just one sink, but the plan for my new master bath included a floating wooden vanity complete with, not one, but two vessel sinks.

To keep this room feeling as large as possible, the original linen closet was made into an open linen nook with wooden shelves stained to match the vanity. Topped off with trim, touch up paint and a few inexpensive accessories and this master bathroom makeover was a wrap!

From a dated 1960’s (and completely nonfunctional) bathroom to a clean and contemporary space, this mater bath remodel is definitely a success in my home-loving book.
