Last time we talked about Lockerbie bathrooms, the tile was being laid. The pedestal sinks in the master bathroom were ready to be installed. The pedestal sink in the half bath was about to be installed. The master shower was … Continue reading
Happy Cinco de Mayo! Last year I made some freaking awesome ceviche and we lounged on the boat. Today is cold and on and off again rain so…we made fajitas and cuddled up under covers while watching Unbreakable KimmySchmidt. Several … Continue reading
So, last time I wrote about the Butler house, I wrote about the bathtub. Here is the current state of the bathtub. It still needs cleaned up. That is number 103 on my long, long “to do” list. So, … Continue reading
I have been on vacation and then, like most families, went into hyperdrive after we got home. The last two weeks have been crazy busy and it is only going to be more hectic with my daughter’s wedding next month! … Continue reading
I don’t have a before photo for the laundry room because all my photos were lost when my phone “happened” to get wet when the glass of water on my nightstand spilled over when “someone” might have knocked it over. … Continue reading
First things first. We got a solid cash offer on the Carmel house today. We countered, so we will see what happens. It’s four day after we listed, so we are excited about the news! In the Carmel house, there … Continue reading
If you recall, the master bathroom was a very scary place. It was dark, tiny and only had one sink. It also lacked a bathtub. I don’t mind not having a tub in the master bath as long as the … Continue reading
The master bathroom in our flip house was a joke. It was dark because there were no windows and it was incredibly cramped. There was a door into it that slammed into the vanity behind it. The vanity only had one sink…ONE SINK. Next to the vanity was the toilet. On the other side of the room was a Jacuzzi tub and small shower. It was all brown and tan and in desperate need of being gutted.
I thought I had taken a before photo, but I must not have. Well, I have during!
First was the gut. We pulled everything out and knocked out the wall behind the vanity that went into the “his” closet. Since we were using that side room as a new enormous closet (see previous post) we could use that smaller closet to make the bathroom bigger.
Instead of a small shower and a tub, because tubs aren’t used that much anyway, we opted to build a huge elegant shower with a seat where the tub and the smaller shower had been. We then decided to move the vanity next to (not behind) the door on a larger wall. I ordered the vanity from Lowes and YAY! It had two sinks.
We build a room for the toilet so there would be privacy if someone needed to use it and another person was in the room, like most master bathrooms.
Then they laid my beautiful tile. I’m a sucker for classic mosaics that will never go out of style.
I chose a white subway tile for the shower walls.
We purchased the hardware for the shower from Economy Plumbing and went with a shower head, a rain shower overhead and the hand held spray. We chose our shower doors from Arizona Shower Doors and purchased two lovely mirrors for over the vanity.
I’m very happy about how the bathroom turned out. It feels very open and light even without a window!
