Bathroom Remodel #2: Master

Here is a photo of our master bath before the remodel.

The window was a full-length frosted glass one, showering and bathing never felt too comfortable. This bathroom would trap a lot of heat. The bathtub was wide and spacious but to fill would take forever and halfway up the water would turn permanently tepid. Also, we had a peeling, corroding bathtub, and leaking issues which made this a remodel must-do.

Upon demolition, there was a lot of wood rot damage behind the tiling and walls. We couldn't wait to see the progress on this bathroom.

We wanted a natural color scheme for this one, and Steve especially liked the slate.

In went the bathtub, a few inches deeper than the hallway bathtub which makes it a soaker tub, and the slate tiles. The slate, a natural stone, had to be treated with a protective coating which will last for five years and then will need to be reapplied. Dan picked out this new smaller slider window with frosted glass.

Toto toilet (I had to get in a photo of this "one piece", check it out), ceramic tile flooring (same as hallway bath), bronze Danze fixtures.

Here is the master bath/toilet area. Dan put in a shelf with the extra granite from the slab, and also trimmed the window area with it.

Here is a photo of the rain shower head. We are still waiting for the hand-held shower head to be delivered.

The vanity area of the master bath is like a different room to me, in a good way. The granite is still the same, and the tile flooring flows, but the cabinet has a bold cherry finish, and the light fixture is unique to the space. The vanity had to be custom made and it was made at a better height than the previous one. We were able to "recycle" the mirror which was in good shape and was the perfect size.

A closer look, I like the bronze fixtures.

While we are still waiting for the hand-held shower part and hallway shower bar, we couldn't be more pleased with the quality of work in a short amount of time. Both bathrooms were finished in about a month. The whole family is so happy with this remodeling project!
