Featured: Master Bath

The house is finished and we are mostly in; finishing moving a few final items from our former home.  But I did take pictures of most of the spaces in the new house before we moved in, after all the dust and grime of construction was cleaned away.

The master bath is a wonderful space.  Lots of windows looking out to the treeline and pastures.  Walking through the pocket door, the vanity is on the left, we retrofitted a buffet found at our local Habitat for Humanity Re-Store, and the mirror is also a find at a different Re-Store.

Next to it is our enclosed water closet (toilet).  The full size door blocked the nice window in there, so we had them customize the door by cutting it down to expose the window when it’s closed and let the light come in.  It will be closed at all times and it helps open up the space.  Our door style allowed the cut to work and not look out of place.

Along that wall, a changing area with bench sits between that space with towel bars for drying our towels.

The enclosed shower is next along that wall.  It has marble look walls and a rock pebbled shower pan.  The granite guys measured and fitted the installation and did a great job.  A built in shampoo recess and a radius seat are a nice look.

The frameless shower door can swing in or out; I like to swing it back into the shower to drip dry after using.

The clawfoot tub was a find; I have painted the exterior a grey to almost match the floor.  The grey floor tiles are a linen look finish, very textured and nice to walk on, but not slippery.  They are Interceramic Tessuto.

My cute little chandelier is a great find online.  I wish they would have had a light bar to match,  but the one I chose has a similar look.  The lights are in brushed nickel, and all the fixtures are in chrome.

We will also have my husband’s grandparent’s old washstand, with their bowl and pitcher, in this room. It will be on the right of the entry door, adjacent to the tub.  It has traveled with us from house to house; we always have space for it.

The paint is Sherwin-Williams. Jersey Cream for walls, and Dover White for trim. The wall color shows up much brighter in photos than it actually is. It is a nice soft creamy yellow.

The water is supplied from a tankless water heater that sits above the space in the attic space. The tankless water heaters allow for unlimited hot water. It is shared by the master and guest baths, and the laundry room.

I can’t wait to get my artwork on the walls to get the space dressed up.

  1. Hi
    Loving this, particularly tub and basin inset into what looks like a vintage sideboard?.
    Do I detect a hint of Mr CR Mackintosh styling? I like the clean unfussy lines
    Tub wise, I can’t get exactly what I want in Southern France (old or new!) so we will be buying a good sturdy acrylic/resin layered slipper bath with chromed feet in UK and I just need a vintage cabinet to put my hand made chinoiserie basin (bought on ebay) into!
    Good luck with the rest
