A master bathroom tour of our white bathroom and wetroom with a soaking tub and two showers.
I am so excited to finally be sharing the first room tour of our new home.
I thought that decorating our master bathroom would be the quickest & easiest one to complete.
Turns out I was a little presumptuous.
I spent about a month gathering all of the different pieces for this room.
I wanted to keep the decor minimal, but I also didn’t want the room to feel empty.
We did so very little decorating in our last house (as we knew we weren’t going to be living there long term) and we didn’t want to purchase things that may not work in our new home.
And I’m so glad we waited!
I love having a clean slate to work with and decorate.
I plan on taking my time decorating our house, but I do really enjoy focusing on one room at a time.
Although I will continue to add, move, and change pieces over the years (and seasons), for now, this room is complete.
And I am so happy with how it turned out!
We spent so many hours designing and redesigning this space.
And this final layout is very different from the original one in our house plans and also very different from our secondary design plan a few months into our build.
Originally we had planned for the shower and tub locations to be the opposite of what they are now.
Although we both loved this idea, it felt a bit closed off (even with it being glass) and I also worried about just how much cleaning I would have to do on both the windows and the glass dividing wall.
Plan B. was a little bit more common.
We were going to have both shower heads on the left wall, the tub on the right wall, and a half wall in between.
But this really REALLY felt closed off and even as we drew it out on the subfloors I was feeling closed in and claustrophobic.
Not as claustrophobic as the pyramid experience, but I kept worrying it was going to close off the room and that there wouldn’t be enough natural light flowing throughout the room.
And no matter how many layout changes we went through, there was one thing that stayed the same.
The exterior wall was going to have as big of a window as we could get within our budget.
Although let’s face it, windows were a big part of our budget for this house as is evidenced by our living room.
After a lot of redesigning Roger finally came up with a plan that made us both really excited!
I had recently started seeing a new trend pop up on Pinterest of master bathroom wetrooms (which is basically just a fancy way of saying our showers and tub were all in one tiled space), and after showing Roger some pictures he redesigned our bathroom for the final time.
And while some people may worry about privacy with such big and open windows, we live on ~27 acres.
Also beyond our woods, our nearest neighbors are horses.
What about children?
Currently, we are still waiting to bring home our little sunshine.
The adoption process can be slow and filled with times of wait.
Every day we pray for our baby girl and hopefully through social media and word of mouth we will become connected to a mother seeking an adoptive family for her child.
I can’t wait for baby girl to take bubble baths in this tub.
I have pink bubble bath soap all ready for her!
Originally we planned on custom cabinets for our bathroom, but since we were over budget (and I really had my heart set on a custom kitchen hood – a story I’ll wait to share until the kitchen tour), we decided to look for something premade that matched our style.
And I’m honestly really happy we did (especially as our carpenter seemed to have too much on his plate) because I love being able to share with you what and where we find things.
I tried to make sure to only purchase items that I could find online so that if you saw something you liked you could easily order it too!
There were only a few items that I couldn’t find links to, but I made sure to link to everything else below the pictures so that you can easily find what you are looking for, for your home!
When we renovated our last house I made sure to add links to as many things as I could as well.
A year or 2 later we ran into one of Roger’s classmates from dental school who told us that he ordered some of the items we used for our bathroom for a remodel he did in his house.
So I made sure that we bought and ordered as much as possible from places that I could easily link to as I know it can be so frustrating to find something you love on Pinterest and then not be able to find the source of the beloved item anywhere.
And now that this first room tour is complete, I am now going to start working on the next one…
Luckily, I think this one may actually be easier to complete.
I plan on sharing our kitchen with you next month.
