This Master Bathroom makeover kicked our butt…but It was so worth it. :-)I am happy to say that we are still married, and now we can take a shower at the same time in our spanking hot resort-style master bathroom. Whohoo!!

Guys! ONE ROOM CHALLENGE #8 is under our belt. I guess it’s safe to say that I (WE) LOVE challenges. The six weeks time frame always inspires us actually to get the project done before the deadline. I think if it were not for the deadline, we would still be looking at tiles lol.

So let me take you back down on memory lane and show you where we started and why we chose to makeover this space.

We live in our house for over ten years, and one thing I always wished for was a bigger master bathroom. Our master is a reasonably small space for a master bathroom. The builders crunched in a bathtub, a shower, vanities, and a big wall in the middle.

Below is the room when we moved into the house, and I painted the oak cabinets for this dark walnut color and the wall to orange….oh wow! it’s incredible how much our style evolves in a decade lol. I guess I loved it back then.

Then we added new vanities and light fixtures a few years after.

And then we went a little further, changing out mirrors and adding some style to this bathroom.

I wanted to LOVE this small master, so I tried hard with all possibilities.

Then this fall, I got an opportunity to makeover one of our rooms as one of the featured designers for the ONE ROOM CHALLENGE, and we decided to tackle our master bathroom. I always had a dream plan for this room, and now I was able to design a resort-style dream master.

This project went from updating the look of our existing master bathroom to completely reconfiguring the space. I wanted to enlarge the space without actually adding square footage. Out went the bathtub, in went two showerheads, and the vanity wall became the focal point. The goal for me was to marry two of my favorite styles: modern & vintage. The textures and combination of materials made my dreams a reality.

I am standing here looking at this bathroom, and I still can’t believe it is in our house.

Here is my design board that I started out with. It’s honestly so cool to see that my final products are always look very close to what I put on my design board.


We did not add square footage but our bathroom, but it sure looks ten times more spacious because of the floor to ceiling tile, the large scale tiles, and that fantastic focal wall.

Fabulous master bathroom design with black tiles.

We demoed the entire room and started with a clean slate!

Wow! I can’t even….

So now I just let you enjoy some great views of this resort-style master bathroom…and while you do that, I’ll hop in a shower 🙂

Get your coffee and go!

Took out the linen closet and we opened up the wall so we can add large chunky DIY corner shelves. I think it turned out so cool!:-)

I think I can count on one hand how many times I have used the bathtub over the course of the last 10 years….so out went the bathub, in went an amazing vanity and double showers.

  1. I am just now finding you through you dining room wall mural post on pinterest and this bathroom, WOW. Black tile is my love language (black anything is!) I’m loving what I’ve seen of your house so far.

    1. Thank you for finding me, Cindy:-) Dark and moody grew on me lately. I just love dark accent walls around the house. Thanks for staying around. Xo

  2. Are you me? I have several similar items in my inspiration board for our guest bath and you made it so incredibly beautiful! Thank you for the inspiration!

  3. Call me crazy, but how do you not have water all over the floor when showering with no door? We stayed in a hotel once that had a similar style shower with drains in the floor and the water still flowed out everywhere – it was a disaster! I love the vanity sinks and faucets 🙂

  4. Aniko ???????????? This master bath remodel is magnificent!!! I absolutely love the drama and the contrast. I’d kill for two shower heads, too!! Such beautiful work. You are such a talent!

  5. This is beautiful! Can you tell me what it is that you put along the wall behind the toilet? Is that tile? Thank you!

  6. Hey there,
    I love how moody and gender neutral this bathroom is. I also love how the antique pieces and patterns flow really well together. Brilliant job.
    I can’t seem to find the link to the wood tile behind the toilet. Could you please link it?



    1. Thanks so much! It is tile from the Tile Shop. I could not locate the tile online – it’s called Reclaimed Wood Stacked Diamond. ???? So cool, isn’t it?!:-)

  7. This is AMAZING! You truly have a gift!
    I do agree with the comment above about painting above the toilet—it would keep the focus on your beautiful finishes.
    I’m a new visitor to your blog, and I’m now working my way through your site! So much beauty to see!

    1. I might consider that. For some reason, it did not stand out for me but now that you all pointing it out, it am considering. And thank you for your sweet comment.Xo

  8. Wow!! This is such a show stopping bathroom. I LOOOVE that shower! I can only dream of having a bathroom as stunning as this. Maybe one year – one challenge. Great job with your reveal!

  9. You win! You win the ORC! This is bold, brave and stunning! Thank you for sharing.
    I know you didn’t ask for my opinion, but have you thought about painting the little ceiling area above the toilet to match the walls around it? It’s a little jarring in the pics.

    1. I am happy to hear that YOU love IT and you think I WIN it. it is for sure BOLD AND BRAVE. Those might be the best words for it. And I embrace those words for the win! Thanks for visiting! Xoxo

  10. I’m glad you went with what you want!
    I personally could never do that dark of a bathroom- just not happy or “clean” to me. I say clean cause I wouldn’t be able to see the mess! 🙂 But it’s good to go with what YOU want to make YOU happy 🙂

    1. Good point, Trisha! I lately really love the moody design so I just listened to my gut and went with it. I would not change anything If I had to redo it. Thanks for visiting! Xoxo
