Before and After

Elegant Master Bathroom Remodel – Before and After Tour


Elegant Master Bathroom After

Last week we talked about 5 simple steps that will help you find your design style {here}. This week I am sharing how those steps helped me when remodeling our master bathroom.

Our master bathroom encountered a leak. Bad news. Good news, we got to remodel! Instead of freaking out about all of the decisions I would have to make, I followed these 5 simple steps…

No. 1  | I went to my Pinterest Account {here}

No. 2  | I created a board for my Master Bathroom {here}

No. 3  | Started looking for inspiration photos. I gathered photos from all over the internet and pinned them to my board. I would search phrases like, “elegant master bathroom”, “marble bathroom”, “white bathroom”.

No. 4  | After a few weeks, I started to observe the similarities in what I had pinned. I looked for what color the rooms I had pinned were painted. What were the cabinets made from, were they painted or stained. What flooring did I mostly pin?

I soon got a feel for what style I was really drawn to. I realized I liked rooms with a contrast, white walls and dark cabinets. Rooms with marble floors seemed to be my favorite.

Pinning all of these photos also helped my husband envision what I was scheming, which in turn made him more excited about the project.

No. 5 | I wasn’t sure about what to do with the some of the bathroom finishing details, like the backsplash and the countertop edge. What pattern to lay the floor tiles? I kept looking for inspiration photos to help me decide what details I was most drawn to.

These 5 steps helped me get a clear vision of what my design style was and took A LOT of the stress out of the design process.

Let me take you on a tour of our elegant master bathroom. Here it is before…

  1. Wow Randi! That leak was a blessing in disguise because it turned out so beautifully! What a lovely oasis! Great tips and I love that marble! Xoxo

    1. Haha! That’s a great way to look at it! Thank you so much for your kind words!!! xo

  2. Randi, how did you panel your bathtub? Your before bathroom looks just like my now. I would love to panel the tub but I don’t know where to start.

    1. That’s a great question! It was SO easy! I just had our contractor remove the front, bowed panel. He replaced it with a flat piece of wood. We picked out some simple trim and he made frames to mimic wood paneling then calked and painted it. It was inexpensive and super easy! It looks a thousand times better! We used our same tub, just switched out the faucet and added the marble top. Let me know if you have any other questions! xo

  3. Randi!! Thank you so much for sharing my bathroom!!! And yours…oh my word is all I can say!! I don’t think I’ve seen it in all of it’s glory yet and it’s by far one of the most stunning bathrooms I’ve ever seen! And such a great post with great tips:)

    1. Thank you Bree! What a fabulous comment! You made my day. I consider you one of the best designers I know, so your seal of approval means the world to me! I was my pleasure to share your amazing bathroom. It’s fabulous! xo

    1. Thanks for asking Pamela! I tried to find the exact tile we used and even a similar one, with no luck. It’s a 12 x 24 inch porcelain tile. It looks like marble, especially when paired with the real marble countertops. I hope that helps! xo

  4. Randi, this is absolutely incredible!! Thank goodness for that leak! Incredible details, I’m not sure which I love the most! Maybe those floors! Or the shelf and tile work in the shower! xo

    1. Thanks Tam! It was a fun push to get the bathroom done when we found the leak! Thanks so much for stopping by! xo

  5. Randi,
    Your before and afters PROVE your incredible talent. I mean WOWZA! Your success is based on sheer talent! I think my meager success is based on luck? haha, God actually! But for real girl, your design skills have me in awe!!! And your friday outfits are spot on. Love how you incorporate comfort into cute. Plus, I think you could look stunning in a bag, so there’s that. So great to be able to connect with you here cause I miss you. I must admit that I’ve never really read blogs , but I am loving reading them. And I learn a lot by reading others’ now that I have joined the club! I hope you will stop by Jodie’s and mine when you get a chance ( and I’d love for you to sign up…that would be a gift 🙂 Thanks love, for all the great modeling. You and Jen and Shauna really planted the seed for me to begin my own journey. God bless, Julie

    1. Julie you have a heart of gold! I will absolutely stop by! I’m so excited for your new adventure! Life has really gotten busy over the past few months, but I think of you often! xoxo

  6. I don’t think it’s possible to love a bathroom any more than I love yours. Every detail is so well thought out and executed. So stunning!

  7. Beautiful! Could you please list sources for your countertops and bathtub backsplash? Did you keep your current cabinets? Also, what materials did you use on the shower wall. Thanks!

    1. Laura,

      Hi! We purchased our marble counter top slabs, and tub surrounds at Arizona Tile in Scottsdale. We replaced our cabinets and the shower wall material is a porcelain tile that looks like marble. The size is 8 x 24″. I hope that helps! xo

  8. Absolutely Beautiful!!!! I know simply nothing about design and design history; I just know what I like and so far, my family and guests seem to like what they see when they come to my home. I’m really going out on a “history of design” limb here and I’m sure I’m dead wrong but your stunning decor has a sophisticated timeless European look to me and I just LOVE it all!
    Every. Single. Room!!
    I’m finding so many decor blogs are, sadly, all starting to look alike with their burlap-covered books, the same choice in pillows, deer sheds, and so on; it’s got to the point that I can barely tell one blog from the other! Yours is so unique and so stunning; I am drooling over the photographs and can’t wait to read all of your posts!

  9. Hi Randi,
    I just discovered your blog today through The Real Houses of Instagram. What a wonderful bathroom transformation!
    Would you be willing to share the wall color? It’s just perfect.


    1. Hi Nancy! Thank you so much and I’m so glad you found me! Our whole home is painted with Ralph Lauren’s Edwardian Linen, mixed by Dunn Edwards. xo
