Before and After: Master Bathroom

I'm excited to finally share with you my master bathroom renovation! Alex and I began the project last May, which then turned in to an insurance claim. Read all about it here. We did a lot of repairs on our own, and some things were completed by a contractor. It took about 3 months to complete, and I'm happy to say that I love my bathroom.  We have officially renovated both of our bathrooms in our home, and it has made a huge difference! See our guest bathroom renovation here.

You can see that the original bathroom did not have front doors and opened up in to our bedroom.  Mornings weren't fun when one of us had to get up early, cue bright lights to the face.  So, we added french doors for privacy. Another huge change was we took out the door and wall that were the entrance to the toilet/shower. Our bathroom feels ten times larger!

- Added larger toilet (after Alex broke the original with a sledge hammer) 
- Removed 2 medicine cabinets and filled in holes
- Added 2 towel rings and replaced toilet tissue holder
- Removed large vanity mirror, replaced with two rectangle mirrors
- Extended the wall near the entrance of the bathroom to add French Doors (found the doors on super clearance at Lowe's)
- Landscape Prints: Emily Jeffords via Minted
- Frames: Target
- Bathroom Baskets: HomeGoods

This has been by far our most expensive renovation project to date, but thanks to State Farm, it was much less expensive than if we had done it all by ourselves! Our next project will be finishing our kitchen (countertops, backsplash, new sink), but we have to do quite a bit of saving before we can start. 

So, what do you think of the renovation? I hope you like it as much as I do!

That's a very rewarding final product, even just from the vantage of design. You've certainly knocked it out of the park there. The next thing you'll have to do is to work on all the little details to make your bathroom more resonant in terms of comfort, than just ambience. Thanks for sharing that! All the best!

That was pretty extensive! The doors are indeed most welcome. Along with privacy, they help distinguish the separation of the rooms a bit more clearly. And it’s great that you've made further renovations in the bathroom as well. You can take the opportunity to fix up the plumbing, as well as improve upon the faucet and other amenities at the same time. Anyway, thanks for giving us a glimpse of your home improvement projects. Cheers!

Wow! The progress and development of your master bathroom is totally present. I think installing a door is really a good step in order for your to have perfect privacy. It's also good to know that the plans for your new home are all well on their way. In any case, thanks for sharing that, Jesse! All the best!

Using white shades always makes a small space look larger. Good use of colour I’d say. Oh and a friend recently used your strategy of having the finishing touches done by a professional. I must say the end result looks great. It also is a good idea to get opinions from a professional plumber before you begin just to make sure you've got the pipe work right.
