For those of you who have been following along on our renovation journey, you know our bathroom has been quite the process! It took far longer than expected to pull it all together, but we couldn’t be more happy with the end result. I’m realizing that as my style evolves, it simplifies. I’m liking cleaner lines and LESS STUFF. So the inspiration for our bathroom was clean, modern and minimalistic.
If I haven’t told you already, we had actually just done somewhat of a renovation on our bathroom. When we moved into this house 2 years ago, it looked like this… (well, the cabinets had doors, but I always forget to take the before picture BEFORE they actually start the reno). :-/ But, here’s the vanity side of the bathroom when we moved in…
We couldn’t afford to gut the entire house at once. Since we wanted to do the kitchen (and other projects) first, but the current state of the bathrooms was kinda unbearable for us, we decided to do a temporary fix to the bathrooms. So… we added granite and refinished the cabinets, and this is what it looked like after the first round of renos… (Sorry for the poor quality of the photo.)

Skip forward another 2 years, and we gutted the entire bathroom (toilet and all), and here she is…
Mirrors | Area Rug
We added new white shaker cabinets (which we used in our kitchen, laundry room and all other bathrooms to create unity throughout our home) and added a tower of cabinets above the countertops because we really needed more storage. The design of the cabinets also gave us each 3 drawers, so the additional storage space is substantial.

*The Sink Faucets are from ATG Stores, which is a go-to for me for finding unique cabinet hardware and modern, unique fixtures & home decor.
We found the lighting for all of our bathrooms at Shades of Light. Here is the Modern Globe Light we chose for our master bathroom.

Before the renovations, our master shower was tiny, and our bathtub was huge. While the spa tub was pretty amazing, it was RARELY used. And since the shower was used daily, we decided the obvious route was to take out the tub and create one large shower. And we mean large…
The other side of the bathroom looked like this… (again, forgot to take a before picture BEFORE they actually started demo, but you get the main idea).
And the after…
We created a bench where the window sill used to be and used the same stone as our quartz countertop for the bench top. The quartz we used is Ella by Cambria. We also installed the same countertops in our other bathrooms and laundry room. Again, we really wanted unity throughout the house.
We did floor to ceiling tile and added 2 shower heads to each side. I found the shower heads and valves on Amazon. For the rainfall shower heads, I actually found it cheapest to purchase these shower heads with arms. And then I purchased these extension arms. You can also purchase a kit like this.

Not that anyone really wants to see my (new) toilet, but I did want to show y’all how we added cabinets over the toilet. It really was another great way to add storage, if that wasn’t an obvious decision. It was driving me crazy finding the perfect storage piece for this oddly shaped-space to hide toilet paper, etc.
Thanks for stopping by to see our project! I’ll be sharing the full reveals of the other spaces we updated soon, so stay tuned!
