Before and After: Master Bath

October 30, 2009

You asked, I answered. Most of you know that Sean and I have had a contractor over to our house to redo our oh-so-small bathroom. Let’s remember the asethetically unpleasing before’s:


Or how about this oldie-but-goodie:


They say that a hefty use of masking tape really does up the resale value of your home.


You can tell how small the bathroom really was, as it was only the door on the left.


Here’ is a picture of the middle stage. Needless to say we used the guest bathroom while the master bath was gettingmade over.


All in all we did the following (and by we, I mean our contracor):

  • Knocked the wall down between the bathroom and closet
  • Re-plumbed (is that a word??) everything
  • New tile, vanity, mirrors, lighting, molding, EVERYTHING

But hey, Sean and I took on the really difficult things like painting and hanging the towel rod.

Finally, after 1.5 months, we have our dream bathroom. I still want to hang some artwork and put some flowers in there, but here is our GORGEOUS bathroom, if I do say so myself.

Here’s the view as you open the new french doors into the bathroom:



Check out the half-wall that gives the toilet some privacy without making the room appear smaller.


Don’t you like how the shower head needs no masking tape? Now the other direction!



And finally, a comparative picture of the bathroom from our bedroom.


The French doors help keep the bathroom feeling very open.

So what do you think? Was it worth the month and a half hiatus from the blog?? We certainly think so.

    Awesome! Nice floor, by the way! Um….should you remove the tags from the rugs? I’m just sayin’… 😉

    It looks great!
