Master Bathroom Renovation: The Emory Project

Yesterday I wrote about The Emory Project kitchen renovation. If you missed it, you can check it out here.  Today I’m sharing with you the dramatic transformation of their master bathroom.

As much as my clients were wanting a new kitchen, I think their master bathroom was a bit higher on the priority list.  The husband is over 6ft tall and I can only imagine how many times he slammed his elbows into the shower walls each day while trying to get clean. Besides the poor functionality of the shower, the rest of the room was all beige tile that looked worn and because of the dividing walls the room felt very cramped.  It’s not a big bathroom to begin with, then add on the angled roof line, and you’ve got a really cramped master bathroom, not a light and airy master ensuite that they desired.

What we did:

  • built symmetrical pony walls dividing the shower, tub, and toilet.
  • extended shower out 3″ and added extra elbow room by using a glass surround
  • created a no-curb shower so the room could be as open as possible given its small space.
  • tiled floor, wall, and shower
  • freestanding tub with beautiful wall-mount faucet
  • new vanity, mirror, and lighting.

In order to save on the budget a bit we decided on a pre-fab vanity from Wayfair.  We did purchase new hardware for it that matches the rest of the polished nickel fixtures and that makes a big difference.

A tray is a must for any countertop.  Three containers sitting  on the countertop look sloppy, but put them on a tray and they look intentional and organized.
