Renovation Challenge with Jeffrey Court – Week #1 – The Before
I am so excited to be a part of this challenge in which I am remodeling the master bathroom in our Waco Fixer Upper home. Be sure to head on over to the Jeffrey Court Challenge website to learn more and meet the other designers. It’s time to finalize the look and feel of the remodel and to facilitate this, I have turned to my inspiration boards.
Last week on my blog I shared the status of the master bathroom. We are expanding out the back of the home and as of last week, we have completed the foundation, framing, and part of the roof. Just in case you thought we might have made a lot of progress in the last week, rest assured we have not. This week we are getting electrical and we hope to start with the plumbing by early next week. What this means is the room still pretty much looks like this …
Hmmm. I am being patient. Ok, kind of patient. There is a deadline for this project. And I always meet my deadlines. So cross your fingers, please.
Anytime you are starting a renovation project, it’s a good idea to put together some inspiration. I am a Pinterest nut which means I have Pinterest boards for every possible room I may renovate, every home I may remodel or build and then some. I have created inspiration boards of photos for every room in the Waco house. So today I am going to share what I have in mind for the remodel.
*Disclosure – Just because I have photos of gorgeous bathrooms doesn’t mean that’s what I will be able to use in the remodel. This is a smaller home, with a low budget that we are remodeling to use as a short term rental. And the budget is low, so I have to be creative.
Before I share my inspiration ideas, let’s look at the plans for the master bath. It’s not fancy. It has a large shower on the left, double vanity on the back wall and toilet on the right. There is room for some vintage storage pieces, which will be really fun to shop for in Texas.
Here is how the master bathroom fits in with the master bedroom.
In the master bathroom, I want to use tile on the floor, shower floor, and shower walls. There are two different looks that I have in mind. The first one is a black metal shower door with white tile and dark grey grout. The second look that I love is similar to what we have in our home in California. It’s the white and grey marble with clear glass shower doors.
These are some of the photos I have collected on Pinterest.
The house is also over one hundred years old and is farmhouse style so I love these bathrooms too. I love the trough sink but I think I will use it in the other bathroom. I think the master bath needs more of a cabinet with a double sink. Some of you may be surprised that occasionally I do select function over fashion.
I love marble tile. This tile has been on my Pinterest Board forever. I used it at a friend’s house a few years ago. I am so excited to work with Jeffrey Court to select my tile!
This is the shower in the master bathroom of our California home. I love the simple design of the marble subway tile. Maybe I should do something like this?
I know I have some decisions to make. But it would be really great if you can help me. I would love your input, advice and any suggestions you have! Just leave your ideas in the comments below. I have to make some decisions in a few days!
