I’m so excited to finally share our master bathroom makeover with you guys! It’s been a long time coming. We started renovations last year and finally wrapped everything up at the start of this year. When we moved into our house a few years ago, we always planned for our master bathroom to be one of the first big renovations we’d do. We’ve been doing minor updates here and there, but we hadn’t taken anything on quite as big as this. We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. All I knew was that I wanted a marble bathroom and I had some pictures that I loved from Pinterest. I didn’t realize all of the little details that went into such a big renovation and how many decisions we’d have to make. We are notoriously bad at making big decisions…so that was interesting. For the most part Phil let me go with my design ideas and our contractor put them into place. It didn’t hurt that we were working with some beautiful pieces from DXV – a luxury bath line that embraces everything I look for in home design. My design style borders on Parisian and art deco so they’re Golden Era portfolio had everything I envisioned for our bathroom. We worked with them to outfit our bathroom. Every time I used our old bathroom all I could do was focus in on the parts I hated. It was very builder grade and parts of it were falling apart. It makes me so happy to use our bathroom now. It’s so bright and airy and I still fill like I’m staying in a hotel whenever I use it. Although home renovations always end up taking more time and money than expected, it was the best money we could’ve spent.
We had the hardest time deciding on what kind of countertop to go with. We replaced the countertop in our guest bathroom with marble and quickly realized how high maintenance it was. We both don’t mind the lived in look, but it was pretty disappointing to see scratches and water spots so quickly on it. I really love the look of marble and we couldn’t find anything comparable so we decided to go with it again anyway. We picked out a slab that we liked and were planning to have it installed until there was miscommunication between our contractor and the installer and we ended up getting a lower quality slab – not the one we picked out and paid for. He ended up fixing the issue, but we took it as a sign that maybe that countertop wasn’t for us. We decided to explore other options right around the same time Cambria released it’s new marble collection. Every design was breathtaking! We had always loved Cambria products – they’re nonporous, nonabsorbent and harder than granite so they’re really maintenance free – perfect for a bathroom! We went with the Highgate design which has warmer tones that matched our marble floor perfectly.
