Bathed in Marble | Our Bathroom Renovation





When I think of a bathroom , I think of the room you go to get clean but our bathroom didn't exactly make me think that let alone feel it. Even though it was clean ( trust me, I scrubbed for hours hoping the next scrub would make a difference) it didn't look clean in the slightest. Not only was it a visual eye sore but the ceiling was drooping down , tape lines were exposed in the ceiling and the room fan was broken.



After putting it on the back burner for years we decided to finally attempt this massive remodel... ON OUR OWN. Keep in mind we had never attempted a complete gut before but for some reason the bathroom sounded like a good place to start.

Boy o' boy were we in for a treat ... and I mean the treats that cause you to gain 10 lbs , keep you up at night and provoke intense mood-swings. Those kind of treats. The rumors are true, it is inevitable that you will run into unforeseen issues that you probably would've never thought about. That was the case for us anyways.

- Gas Leak 
- 12 hours razoring off dried grout 
- Prying apart barbed wire attached to the plaster . Yes, barbed wire. 2 layers of it!! 
- Sewer line back-up into the basement , talk about crappy. 
- 3 nights learning to balance drywall on my head 
- Peeing in a bucket for 2 1/2 months
- Shoveling demo debris in a snow storm  

to name a few ...

Good news is ; we survived, our old bathroom didn't, we are still married, know so much more about any and all things bathroom related and have a gorgeous bathroom now! Oh and ... when I think of my bathroom, it's a place I can't wait to go to , to get clean !




I 'm a sucker for a touch masculinity, I feel like it brings a modern vibe with clean lines and structure. Combining that with the fluidity of using different sizes and patterns of Carrara marble from surround to floor was the perfect recipe for the feel I was going for.

Of course this bathroom needed to be functional for everyday use so that is where practical meets design. Adding small "hotel-esque" touches that still allowed the space to be realistic for us was key.
Adding paper guest hand towels , something we never had done before, immediately took us to a Ritz state of mind. In case you were wondering, no, we don't use them on the daily! They double as decor when we don't have guests over ! #win-win.

For being the main bathroom in the house , its actually pretty small. Only 58 sq ft (- minus) the tub. We ordered more shower tile (66 sq ft) than floor tile! It is actually amazing to see how using lighter colors can really open up a space and make it look so much bigger! Using whites doesn't have to be sterile and boring ... its all about incorporating textures, mixing patterns and adding accents to add that warmth factor! I would have never thought this small space would be the biggest project we've tackled yet.

  6. A most engaging aspect regarding the conventional bathroom is messiness gives it to a greater degree a lived as a result, in this manner upgrading the customary look. Try not to be hesitant to put a lot of pictures on the dividers - highly contrasting family representations in gold casings are a decent look. bathroom mirror
