Yesterday, I posted some of my design inspiration for our huge master bath renovation and today I wanted to take you through our plans to transform this space, showing you the initial bathroom design boards. First off, let me remind you what this space currently looks like:new home

It’s a great space but obviously right now it’s super dated. This tub is taking up soooo much visual (and actual) space with all the extra tile. The shower is completely enclosed – very dark and claustrophobic and, of course, there is only a single vanity at the moment. All things we aim to change! And so, here is my design:Master-Bathroom Design BoardsPart one of the master bathroom design is the tub side. We found a great free standing bathtub that will become the focal point on this side of the space. And rather than the fixtures being placed on the tub itself, I want them to be floor installed and standing next to the tub. Ryan and I love the look of subway tile, so we are planning to tile halfway up the wall – which will continue onto the other side of the room behind the vanity. We are going to use large square tiles for the floor. We love these soft white and grey porcelain tiles from a local store here in Edmonton. Then, it’s all about the accessories on this side of the room! I want to add some touches of wood with a shelf, bathtub caddy and maybe even a small stool.

On the shower floor, we will install small honeycomb tile with a light grey grout. As you know, I fell in love with Cedar & Moss lighting so I had to order these sconces, which will provide some curved shape to the room (I don’t want it to be too linear). I HAVE to have wall mounted faucets and I actually found one that matches our bath fixture. For the vanity, my original idea was to take the floating white high gloss one from Ikea and replace the butcher block with a concrete counter top buuuuut, I have since changed my mind. Let me explain…bathroom design ideas - black vanityIn my inspiration search, this bathroom from Amber Interiors was hands down my favourite. And then, I just couldn’t get this image out of my mind and the black vanity stole my lil design heart. Looking at our space, I decided it needed more black than just the lighting. So over the weekend, after a long search finding nothing we loved in Edmonton, Ryan and I settled on creating our own vanity. We will have a black base from DIY Cabinets, a light grey concrete counter, which Ryan will create himself, and two white sink basins. With the subway tile and wall mounted fixtures, I think it will be perfect!
