Are you as excited to hear about our master bathroom as I am to share? If you missed my post last week, you can catch up here.
Once the direction of the kitchen had been established, it made the rest of the house a little easier.
Let’s look at the house plan again to view the master bathroom:
In our current home, we don’t have a private master bath. We’ve missed that! To say we are excited about having our own bathroom again is an understatement.
The cabinetry and sinks have changed since I drew this plan, so let’s dive in. We’ll start with the vanity.
Once again, I was thrown for a loop with all the hard, metal lights on the market. They look amazing, but I need a soft, diffused light especially in the bathroom where I’ll be getting ready every day. Using a more traditional light with a modern vanity hit the right vibe. Since this is a new build, I have full control over the placement of the lights so there aren’t any that are placed directly over the mirror. Happy dance!
The bathroom will be painted white, and the floating shelf vanity will be made out of a natural, light oak.
I only did one large sink this time because, while two master sinks sometimes seem like a “must”, I found that I need usable counter space just as much. I love that it’s a little unexpected and really functional. I will have space to spread out makeup and lay hair irons.
On the opposite wall of the vanity, I decided to do a furniture piece instead of a solid wall of cabinets. It makes the space feel homey to me. This is what the “linen closet” or armoire will look like. It was inspired by an antique piece I saw online, and I think I’ll stain it black. Are you starting to see my “value” pattern?
I haven’t yet decided if I’m going to bling this out with hardware. I kind of like it without. That way it doesn’t fight with the vanity for attention.
I plan on hanging small landscape paintings on each side of this armoire. I have so many AMAZING photos of the back country I run in the summers. They need to be painted!
I want the shower to be a work of art. Fully exposed, I want to do a book match of some type of stone, because it’s beautiful and I despise cleaning grout. Forgive the scribbled depiction of stone veining! The dark line indicates the end of the clear glass, which will go from floor to ceiling.
We debated about doing a spray head (I need it for cleaning) and a rain head, but decided the spray was enough. Sometimes we overload our showers with too many features. The spray shower is by Waterworks and will be an unlaquered brass (gold).
I opted for towel hooks this time around instead of bars. I think they are much more relaxed and functional. I’ll be purchasing towels with loops to ensure the towels aren’t always on the floor.
The thing I’m waffling most on is my floor tile. I love the large hex. Daltile just came out with an affordable version, but I’m not sure what color to do. Right now, I think black. They have some gray options as well, and I may go that route.
The finishing touch will be an amazing runner. I love using “real” rugs in a bathroom verses the regular bath mats. I am eyeing this one from Chairish:
