Renovation Rewind: Master Bath Renovation Property 2:
What Did We Do:
Planned and designed the bathroom // Updated the unusual soffit above the cabinets// Deconstructed bath cabinets and donated to ReStore // Knocked out the large singular master mirror // Removed the stained glass window // Pushed out the shower walls to gain another 5 or so inches of shower width // Added new mirrors // New countertops // New sinks // New faucets // Installed shiplap tub surround // Installed Ikea Cabinets // Installed new cabinet hardware // Installed new flooring // Painted // Replaced the swinging door from the bedroom to the bath with a sliding barn door to conserve walking space // Demoed old shower and updated with modern tile and shower cubby // Created a doorless shower entry
Making the shower a bit larger:
Taking care of the mirror (and we don't recommend you try this at home):
Where Did We Shop:
Ikea (cabinets)// Southeastern Salvage (mirrors, all tile and globe light) // Home Depot (faucets) // Lowes (sinks, cabinet hardware, and tile grout) // Sherwin Williams (paint)// The Granite Shop- Franklin, TN (countertop)
Ikea Vanity Cabinets: Bodbyn finish// Wall color is Sherwin Williams Mindful Gray, eggshell finish // Shiplap is Sherwin Williams Mindful Gray, satin finish // 3x8 shower American Olean stone subway tile: Arctic Topaz // 12x12 shower tile: Appalachian Smoke // Floor tile: 12x24 Bronze Cloud // Ceiling Paint Benjamin Moore Décor White, Color Matched Sherwin Williams, Flat Finish // Trim Paint Benjamin Moore Décor White, Color Matched Sherwin Williams, Satin Finish // Faucets and cabinet hardware: brushed bronze // A few things that I can't remember or didn't document well: the Countertop color, glass mosaic shower tile color and grout color
Thankfully there were no major problems with this master bath renovation, my only compliant is that I really wanted to recycle or sell the stained glass window that we removed; however it cracked during the removal process
We Completed The Following Ourselves:
Designed bathroom vanity layout using the Ikea Kitchen Planner // Demoed the enormous mirror //Built and installed IKEA cabinets // Designed the shower // Installed and painted the shiplap tub surround // Built and hung barn door // Installed the 12x24 tile flooring // Removed and installed new window above the tub // Hung updated pendant light // Painted walls and ceiling
We Called in The Professionals For The Following:
Removing the floor and tub surround tile // Reinstalling the crown molding // Demoing the shower and installing new shower pan and tile // Updating electrical GFCI outlet and replaced the fluorescent lighting with canned lights // Completing sheetrock work
Our electrician replaced this florescent light with 3 canned lights
The larger feel of the space once we replaced the swinging door with the sliding barn door
The doorless shower, no more door to clean (No, Mom, I never got cold in the shower!)
The rectangular sinks and mirrors: Loved them cosmetically
The extra 5 inches we were able to gain in the shower made a big difference
Our Ikea Cabinets: The soft close drawers and doors continue to be a favorite feature along with the drawer inside of drawers (or as we sometimes call them, the hidden IKEA drawers)
The Ikea Bodbyn grey against the champagne bronze hardware looked amazing together
Getting rid of the stained glass window, old wallpaper, and fluorescent lighting in the space
The Things We Would Reconsider:
Never ever will we renovate a bath without ordering a dumpster!
I have to admit I was a little anxious about the shiplap around the tub. Love the look, but worry a bit about how it may or may not wear against water.
If the budget would have allowed it, I would have loved to either resurface or replace the old bathtub.
If the budget would have allowed it, I would have also loved to have planned a larger shower footprint.
Hauling this mess off was a nightmare!
