Mood Board for our Master Bath
Should the football gods bless me with a win (go Saints!), I will be doing cosmetic upgrades to our main bath. Here is the current state of things:
We have already done a couple of upgrades – the mirror and the light fixture. So, it was important that I incorporate them back into the room. I will also be keeping the existing sink to help with the budget.
Here’s what I am thinking:
1. Wall color – robin’s egg blue. I loved it in the inspiration rooms I picked, and I have paint left over from a earlier project in this color. Budget-friendly and beautiful!
2. I chose dark oak laminate floors for the bath. What, no white mosaic tiles? Nope. I am a mom and this choice is far more practical for a family bath. Plus, we have installed laminate flooring successfully before, but we have never tiled. Why not stick with what we know?
I plan to mimic the floor on the countertops. I will make wood countertops, distressed and then stained the same color as the floors. Several coats of polyurethane will make the tops work for a moisture rich bathroom. This will be an inexpensive way to bring some additional rustic to a room that could border on too precious otherwise.
3. White bead board will encircle the room. I plan on having this go further up the wall than one would traditionally find so that it stops about eye level.
4. An extra-long, white shower curtain is a simple but dramatic choice for the space.
5. New fixtures in a satin finish update the space. I love the little dot detailing.
6. New glass knobs will bring sparkle to the current cabinetry (which will be painted a warm white). This will help tie them to the rest of the design.
7. I chose a new faucet that matches the aesthetic of the room better than the old one. I opted to go with a single-handle faucet and not the double-handle ones I actually prefer because single-handle will be easier for the kiddos.
How does it look? My budget is $900. We are reusing the existing cabinets, sink, light fixture and mirror. Think we can do it?
