From start to finish our home took about 2.5 years. Two and a half years of planning out every detail, hiring contractors, ironing out kinks, and lots of figuring out what we wanted. I joke that I got pregnant, went through the pregnancy and had a one year old by time we moved in. However, having that time allowed us to build the perfect home that met our needs.
It’s been a while since I have posted, and first up on the blog is a much awaited master bathroom post. When we first built our home I had so many questions about the house and I’m hoping to answer all those questions in posts that I have planned over the next few months. I’ve been a little MIA this past year as I went back to teaching, I have decided to stay home with the boys and focus again on them and my blog. Excited for what is to come this next year.
A lot of times in recent remodels you see people removing their big garden tubs out of their bathrooms. A tub was a huge must have for me–I love taking baths and splurging on bath bombs from Lush. Plus, having young kiddos I would totally miss the bath tub–seeing as they use it way more than I do.
Another must have was his and her sinks. I’m sure its possible to share a sink with your husband–but I’m not one to put my stuff away and I leave it on the counter. That may drive him a little insane. I’m pretty sure he was the one who requested the separate sinks.
I also love the vanity area. the middle drawer is where I store all my makeup. I actually had to put locks on the drawers because when Carson was younger he would get into it and rub it all over his body. Yes, body–not face. I found this chair on the swap page and planned on painting and recovering it. Here it sits a year and a half later still looking the same.
We decided on a small linen closet for our bathroom as our closet at our old house took up so much space. I love this closet, and love that we didn’t take up precious bathroom space for something bigger. (Our master closet makes up for it.)
We went with the wood-look tile in the bathrooms throughout the house, and brushed nickel fixtures. Although I am loving the gold look, I know in a few years it will go out of style and I couldn’t see myself replacing everything. I feel as if the fixtures we selected were timeless. We also went with the same cabinet and countertops that we have in our kitchen.
