I’ve shared many a beauty/skincare post in this bathroom since moving in, but realized I never actually shared the details on the bathroom itself! When designing and building out my master bathroom, I knew I wanted it to be light and bright! I wanted big windows for natural light, space for a large bath and shower, and a dual vanity. I also wanted ALL the storage! I have three sets of drawers in the vanity, plus space under each sink. I also have a large linen closet with space for my laundry basket underneath, as well as a spacious cabinet above my toilet in the water closet. While I didn’t have everything narrowed down, Pinterest gave me lots of inspiration to guide me in the choices I made.
Most people go with Carrera marble, but I decided to go with Mountain White. I had gone to several places in Dallas to look at a variety of marble options, but this was my favorite. While I loved the Carrera options, the Mountain White had more of a contrast – lots of white, with dark grey, thin veins. The Carrera options I saw had much thicker veins of light grey, and the white wasn’t as bright as this one. I just loved the steep contrast between the dark grey, bright white and bold gold of my Kohler hardware. The hardware was probably the easiest for me to pick out – most options I saw were too traditional. I wanted something sleek and modern, but still very elegant. I loved the simple drawer pulls that match my faucets, and carried that look into my closet as well for a fully cohesive look.
The one thing I didn’t give any thought to was the floor and shower tile. It totally slipped my mind and I was sort of rushed into making a decision the week of the install. I wished I’d had a bit more time to peruse the different options of tile cuts and flooring options! I did manage to get the shower floor tiles cut into chevron, which I think could have been very cool to do throughout the bathroom – again, if only I’d thought about it beforehand! I learned a lot throughout the building/designing process, so next time I do something like this I’ll know to come to the builder with as much decided on as possible! While I’ve loved having such a bright white bathroom, I think it could have also looked great with a very soft grey paint. Either way, I’ve LOVED my bathroom! This was my first house purchase and my first experience with renovating/adding on, and I certainly picked up some great info for the next time I want to do something like this! It can be overwhelming and stressful, but there’s something so special about making a place your own and designing something from start to finish. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to do so and for the experience/knowledge I gained throughout the process!
