Hello, friends! We just moved into our new home this past weekend. It feels so good to be in one spot and not to be driving back and forth between our rental and the house, the schools and everything over here. We are up to our ears in moving boxes and craziness, so I’m going to show you pictures of the only room that isn’t chaotic right now: the master bathroom. This room is long and skinny (you can see it on the floor plan here) so taking pictures was a trick, but please come in!
We went with the darker wood cabinets to give a little contrast to the sea of gray and white.
Did you know that wood stained cabinets are actually less expensive than paint grade cabinets?? Because they don’t have to be perfect and smooth like you expect white cabinets to be. Imperfections and knots are perfectly acceptable.
For the counters, we went with a carrara marble. We had it in our bathroom in Virginia and we loved it, so we chose it again. It is softer and scratches and etches easily so I would NOT recommend it for high traffic areas or kids’ bathrooms, but I figured my husband and I could handle it. The cabinet hardware is from the Jeffrey Alexander Belcastel collection.
It is the classic carrara gray and white with a mirror-like sheen when you look to the side:
For the floor, we used the Daltile 2 inch carrara hex
and for the the tub and shower, we used the less expensive subway tile with an accent strip of the white carrara oval mosaic with the first snow pencil rail. It is a great way to save and still get a custom look, like we previously talked about here.
We also need to talk about the shower door. I was bound and determined not to have one. Because I didn’t want to clean it! We were just going to do a walk-in shower, and maybe if it was deeper and longer it would have worked, but we decided to keep the water and heat in, a door would be best. So, I am a squeegee nazi now.
The chandeliers (over the vanities and tub) are from Home Depot and were on sale this winter for only $69! They are mostly plastic, but you would never know unless you climbed up to touch them.
We also had them put some shelves above the tub that I need to accessorize, but it’s fun to have a blank slate and to imagine what will go on them when we discover what is in the boxes that have been in storage for 9 months. :)
Another feature I love is the linen closet so we don’t have to go down the hall for extra towels or toothpaste. The wall color is Sherwin Wiliams 7057 Silver Strand.
This other door is the toilet room, but there is just a toilet in there, so I figured you didn’t need to see it.
So, there it is! It needs some warming up and personalization, but that will come with time (and unpacking!)
Thanks for letting me share – happy Tuesday!
