my master bath makeover is DONE!

We totally overhauled our home and redid the master bath. We tore out the original 1965 bathroom and reconfigured space to make it larger. We also added about 130 sq. ft. for the closet.

We are really enjoying it!

Very Very pretty!!! what color paint did you use and what info can you provide on your chandalier? Do you think it is the proper size to put over a tub (I am thinking of doing over the tub...). THANKS!!!

Also sorry to drive you crazy but your shower door - is it frameless and pivoted or just frameless? thanks!

RE: my master bath makeover is DONE!

the wall color is cafe au lait by martha stewart (when it was with sherwin williams), the trim is white dove by BM. The chandelier is from Maxim and I think is 17 high. I have 8 ft ceilings. (FYI....I don't think a chandelier will meet code over a tub but you can't trust my 40+ mind). My shower door is frameless with hinges.

Beautiful job! So elegant and classic. Very, very nice.

May I ask where you purchased the vanities with feet? I'm planning my kids bath and I need vanities with feet. Thanks and enjoy your new space!

RE: my master bath makeover is DONE!

The vanities were built on site. I can give you the details if you want.

thanks for the comments!

Gorgeous bath! Is your closet open to the bathrm? We're planning a modest (Lowe's & HD mostly) redo of our small half bath. Currently the bathroom sits right off our bedroom and the walkin closet is next to it. Both rooms are only 6x6. We planned to take at least 2ft of the closet for the bath. I had wondered about opening it up completely but wasn't sure whether that would work out. Mlou

My closet is off the bathroom, across the back of the house. We access the bathroom from our bedroom and walk through the bathroom to the closet. I hope that makes sense!

RE: my master bath makeover is DONE!

Wow!! Amazing and elegant.

I'm green with envy. Your closet is bigger than my whole bathroom. Actually, I think your vanity is bigger than my whole bathroom.

Lovely.

RE: my master bath makeover is DONE!

flash407 - I am doing a master bath very similar to yours. I'd like to show my cabinet and counter people how you did the sink on the "ladies" vanity. What kind of lights are over the vanity in the boxed in area?

RE: my master bath makeover is DONE!

Where did you get the fantastic mirror? I love your bathroom!


 o
RE: my master bath makeover is DONE!

Really enjoyed looking at all of your pix. The closet game me all kinds of good ideas as did the master. The powder room was very charming - too. Thanks for sharing!

RE: my master bath makeover is DONE!

Ya'll are too kind! Sorry I haven't gotten back for some of the questions. The mirror is from Bombay (may they rest in peace...they were a great mirror resource). Also, this is a little late for spadentrowel, but I have a can over the "lady's" sink


 o
RE: my master bath makeover is DONE!

Ooh, I love your bathrooms! Very elegant without being glitzy.

So where did you buy those stunning vanities, puleeze?


 o
RE: my master bath makeover is DONE!

We had the vanites made on-site (I sketched them out for our carpenter and ordered the millwork on line from VanDykes and Osborn Wood Products)


 o
RE: my master bath makeover is DONE!

Gorgeous, just gorgeous!

What is your wall and floor tile? Love the chandelier--how high are your ceilings?

Thanks!


 o
RE: my master bath makeover is DONE!

I used 12x12 travertine. I have 8' ceilings so I used a mini chandelier (I think Maxim or Minka) and hung it as high as I could.


 o
RE: my master bath makeover is DONE!

Thanks, flash407--I really appreciate your info.

I just checked online and found that Bombay is closing their stores?????

High End Downtown NYC Meditative Spa Bath

Thanks to everyone on this forum for occasional advice, especially Flyleft, who once called me "Downer," Bill, Mongo and the gang.

DW was kind enough to forego a dressing room to let me have the no-expense-or-effort-spared bathroom of my dreams. I am nothing but grateful, but the structural repairs alone took 5 months.

Out in the heartland I suppose a 19'x13' bath is for the servants, but here in downtown NYC, that's a lot of real estate. But it does give us room for a garden, a floating bench, a Kneipp hose, three illuminated shower heads in an open shower, a laundry chute, self-designed twin pullout linen closets with Haefele hardware, a Neorest toilet, a sculptural stainless magazine rack, unique Loewen Access windows, a swingout electric towel warmer, custom Blum tandembox drawers for storage, a 6 foot drawer next to the tub, chromatherapy, water jets, air jets, custom floating corian vanity sink with storage, Swiss contemporary commercial faucets, two Velux automatic skylights with two automatic shades in a square and a round opening, nine different kinds of lighting, two exhaust vents, heated floors, motorized window shades, 4 custom sliding doors, 2 custom pocket doors, 24" x 24" Italian ceramic tile, an illuminated 6'long Boffi mirror, a 120 gallon square tub with a raised surround, and quiet space to dream in the heart of the City.

The inspiration was this design done for Dornbracht's Mem line of fixtures, called the Spirit of Water:

Ours is not quite so spare and elegant, I'm afraid it was impossible to sink the tub to floor level in a house nearly 200 years old:

The list of things we put in this bath does seem a bit excessive when put into a bare list, but life does keep one humble. An inebriated young lady at a party this summer pointed to my wife's storage and said: "Herbal Essence! Such a low end shampoo in such a high end bathroom."

There are also a few photos of our guest basement bath here:

Downtowner: Very nice and sleek. I love, love your garden--I was suppossed to be looking at pictures of bathrooms for my next remodel. Your mentioned of your inebriated guest made me laugh--I guess we cannot choose our family...or friends ! :)
Thanks for posting

RE: my master bath makeover is DONE!

Spending way too much time here- but this one looks fantastic and I guess I must have missed it- bumping it because it sure is worthy- (and it's a few years old and the links even work!).


 o
RE: my master bath makeover is DONE!
