I'm sharing a pretty amazing master bath before and after today. It turned out beautifully, with lots of pretty custom details, some luxurious finishes, and a little hit of color.

We remodeled the bedroom too, but I'll be sharing that room in another post. It's almost too much design goodness to share all at once. :-)
This is the master bath of a 50's ranch style house in Houston. (Luckily it didn't flood!)
I used to have a house sooo similar to this one, in Dallas. My shower was exactly like this. The bathrooms and closets were really small and not suited to today's lifestyles. I always wanted to do a remodel, and dreamed of gutting our bathroom, among many other rooms. ;-)
It was so nice to be able to do so here. Because we didn't have much square footage to work with, my client and I knew that opening up the chopped-up space as much as possible, was key. I also felt that creating a boutique hotel-inspired ensuite bathroom, with high end finishes like white marble and polished nickel, would go a long way into making this a luxurious retreat.
Here was how we started.
Master Bath Remodel Before
The demo plan is below. All those little interior walls and doors were removed to create a larger, open space. The closet was relocated to the master bedroom as a wall of cabinet storage.
Special details create that boutique hotel bathroom experience
We have his and her vanities, a spacious shower, and a colorful tall linen cabinet for an eye catching focal point. Special details like the luggage rack towel bar, the tilt mirror, the wall mount faucets and that little marble ledge at the sink, add some personality and added luxury, much like a boutique hotel bathroom would have.
This client is a lover of color and I wanted to honor that, but keep some of the hard surfaces as luxurious neutrals in the space. An Ann Sacks hex tile was used on the floors, in the shampoo niche, and over the ledge at the sinks.
Sherwin Williams Repose Gray was used as wall and ceiling colors. The blue color on the cabinetry is Sherwin Williams Loyal Blue. I kept the upper tower cabinets in the Repose Gray to keep the space feeling open and light.
The fabric valance was made from the homeowner's stash of collected fabrics, the iconic Chiang Mai Dragon pattern from Schumacher. That pattern and color palette was the springboard for this master bath/bedroom design. The chinoiserie details are picked up in the vanity lighting and the blue color was chosen as a match from the blue in the print.
This bathroom has some hidden luxurious details like a heated floor, curbless shower entrance, and outlets both inside and out of the upper towers. Those shallow towers add a lot of storage.
Of course, I love a grand shampoo niche, and this bathroom has a beauty.
