Space | Master Bathroom
What I Love | We have one!
What I Don’t Care For | The not so stellar tiling job.
What I Want To Do Next | Install new tile and paint.
Again, my apologies for the miniscule photo.
Little did we know when we began our house hunt was that you actually needed to specify things like a master bathroom, central air and an attached garage. You see, those things didn’t really exist in 1925 when our house was built. We quickly learned and decided we really needed to have a master bathroom. (Luckily we also scored central air as it was added during the flip process.)
Our master bathroom is not a large space at all but it is functional. The photo is taken from the door and pretty much shows everything the room has to offer minus the toilet which is placed on the opposite wall from the sink.
While I’m thrilled to have the space, there are definitely things I’d like to change. At the top of that list is re-doing the tile. UGH. I’m such a perfectionist that it kills me when people don’t take pride in what they’re doing. The grout is already coming loose from between the tiles and I’m irritated by the hassle and trying to figure out when we’re going to fit this project into our DIY schedule. The tile was installed less than a year ago so in reality, this shouldn’t be an issue.
Other things I’d like to change?
- Swap out light fixture.
- New mirror.
- Remove towel ring. I figure I can hang our hand towel on the bar of the shower and call it good. The redundancy of towel hanging paraphernalia in this house is absurd.
Unfortunately, I’d love to figure out a way to add storage to the space but I have yet to dream up a workable solution. The cabinet under the vanity is perhaps a foot deep at best but when taking into account the pipes that it also hides, there isn’t much room leftover. Currently an over the door unit is the only means of storage in the space.
It’s a small space with a big to-do list but we’re blessed that we even have a master bath to have a to-do list for.
