Master Bath Reveal: Before & After
ok, so I know theres things in a house that you remodel because you want to, because they're not your style, or just needs to be updated, And then there's things you remodel because you NEED to. Well the Main bathroom in our new house was one of those, it needed to be done. So many things! to start, the layout was way off:
The shower was tiny, super narrow, no actual door and you had to squeeze in by passing the toilet, which was almost in the middle of the bathroom, with a pony wall and no door (see photo with notes) and then it had a huge jacuzzi that no longer worked, the funny thing is this space was (still is) HUGE! so no reason to have everything so tight in together. Then there was carpet ... how about no, the cabinets on what would be my side, were extremely low (i'm not even tall) they made the entire cabinets vanity height. What I can say is this bathroom was overall huge, and very open meaning we could do a lot with it.
So what did we decide to do?:
- Kept the similar layout meaning all the plumbing on the same side of the room, we did have to move the toilet but using the same drainage lines and keeping the re-plumbing in the same area.
- One big wet room/shower: Arturo nor I are big tub people, and we both like showers so instead of making the tub such a main item in the bathroom we decided to go big with the shower. I still wanted a tub because you never know when you might want to need it, or even for future resale value, I know other people do love tubs. Wet rooms are actually very practical, you don't have to worry about leaving the floor wet and if you need to rinse off after you've been in the tub, you're right there in the shower already haha
- Double shower: because we're both shower people we decided to make it a double shower, and like I said we had the space for it ... also Arturo says I like to boil myself alive when I shower ... I just love standing under hot water lol ... well problem solved. I can cook myself in peace.
- Rotated the toilet and moved it to the outside wall, and gave it the privacy and door it deserved.
- New Cabinets, same location: the location of the cabinets worked, we just needed to make my side taller (standard height) and we evened out the wall. we actually got rid of the vanity area, I really never sit to get ready but did want the extra counter space.
- Added Doors/walls: Fun fact the bathroom didn't have doors from the bedroom, everything was just open. We also added full walls that actually connected with the ceiling, and doors to the closet.
Material and Contractors:
- We worked with Vintage Reconstruction for this project highly recommend them, ask for Gavin for supervisor. They have their own cabinet workshop and their guys are amazing!
- Material: Marble tile for all was from Floor & Decor

Well that's all of it, i'm still waiting on a little over the toilet shelf thing and a couple shelves for my side but not sure when those will come in. Hope you like it
