I came on here to look at pictures of master bathrooms in hopes of finding some inspiration for what to do in the house that we just bought, but I came away inspired and ready to take on the rest of the house! I am actually going to use the bathroom design ideas from the photos to base not only our master suite of off, but also the kitchen and the entire main floor of our house. I love the white and grey scheme that feels modern, but still has an almost vintage flair with the tile choices. I have always loved traditional design, but I wanted to make this house a little bit more contemporary and "cool." We will start this transition with the bathroom renovations 2020, but then we will carry a very similar design down to the kitchen and the rest of the main floor.
Out of all of the pictures of master bathrooms that I browsed through, something about this one really stuck with me. Now that I am looking at them again to post them, I realize that it is actually the vanities that caught my eye at first. My least favorite part of master bathroom designs are usually the vanities because they always seem to drag down the rest of the design. Maybe I am looking at the wrong types of homes, but no vanity that I have seen actually enhances the space. These units are absolutely incredible though because they actually look like pieces of free standing antique furniture. It totally sets the tone for the rest of the traditional decor, and makes it look ultra luxurious.
I know that these are not the most glamorous pictures of master bathrooms that most of you will see on here, but I think that it is so valuable to post the not-so-pretty before photos in addition to the drool-worthy after photos. It has been really hard for me to come up with bathroom designs on my own without the help of an interior decorator because the average person cannot see the potential of a space. But if you see a before and after photo, you can compare what your home looks like to the one on the screen and discover what you can do. I assumed that we would have to gut this entire room, but then I discovered some bathroom shower ideas on here that can actually utilize the (quite expensive) existing tile that we have in here.
I love looking at pictures of master bathrooms like this one because it really opens my eyes to the possibilities of what we could do in our home. We certainly do not have a humongous grand mansions like these people, but we do have a good sized home that I believe we can do a lot with. Right now we are focusing on bathroom ideas, but we have already done extensive renovations on a spectacular kitchen and the adjacent living area downstairs, as well as a couple of bedrooms. To be honest, the real reason that I have saved our master bathroom decor for last because I don't feel particularly confident with my abilities to design this space.
Looking at pictures of master bathrooms probably sounds like the most boring thing ever to some people, but that is all I have been doing with my free time lately because I know that that is the next room in our house that we are going to tackle. With that in mind, I have begun a quest to look at all of the small master bathroom ideas that I can find in hopes that something will stick out to me so I know what to do at our house. Well luckily that very thing happened when I came across these photos. Honestly it was the picture window with the black trim that did it for me more than anything, because I could instantly visualize the very same thing in our layout. It is funny how something as simple as looking at bathroom pictures can really set you on the right path in your own home.
I am well aware that the vast majority of people only post pictures of master bathrooms that are enviable gorgeous and have likely been designed by professional high end interior decorators. I figured that I would mix things up and most some of our before photos so that people could follow along as we embark on our own do it yourself bathroom renovations. I have been coming on here a lot as we developed our plan and timeline of what we will be doing in here, and the one thing that I wished that I saw more of was before and after photos. Or even progression photos that take you through the whole project from start to finish.
