The 2011 Reveal Part 5 - Master Bathroom

Ah, the piece de resistance ... the master bath.  A woman's retreat, a place of spa-like calm and serenity, where the worries of the day disappear in a foaming bath of bubbles.  Well, that wasn't going to happen in THIS bathroom.

After annexing the former walk-in closet and about 5' of the master bedroom, there is now room for a free-standing tub and a shower stall.

Rub-a-dub-dub, I love my tub. And the blinds also are remote-controlled Silhouettes, just like the bedroom.  And yes, I can control these blinds from the bedroom.  RF is awesome!

Isn't this a fun tub filler?

After much hemming and hawing, I decided to go with a single long sink, rather than 2 separate sinks.  There wasn't quite enough room for two sinks, and even if they were crammed in, there wouldn't be much counter space.  This undermount sink is plenty long for two people to brush their teeth without spitting on each other.

The vanity has lots of storage.  Even the centre part can be used for storage, thanks to some clever design.

The side shelves provide lots of storage for tall things.

This faucet is *not* a puking faucet like all the others.  I think it looks like a baleen whale.

The wall sconces are giant diamonds.  I have no idea how to change the lightbulb on these things so hopefully they never burn out.

An invisible, yet awesome addition to any bath reno - heated floors.

A free-standing armoire thing has the same counter top as the vanity.  I think it's really pretty.

On the bottom, I store linens.

The middle compartments are good for things like nail polish.

And on top, I have ... Kiehl's.  And some other stuff.  I need to put more stuff in here.  Maybe more Kiehl's.

And finally, the most girly shower you can imagine!

Right down to the shower door knob.

Rex says it's like being in a disco ball ... and he'd like to come out please.

So there it is, another reno in the books.  There is nothing left in this little house to reno.  No original parts are left.  No mas, fini, ca c'est tout!  Except the back deck.  Maybe in the spring, I can have that re-done.  And the dogs said they want a pool.  Just a small, above-ground one so they can stay in shape.
