10 Master Bathroom Remodel: Day 1

>> Thursday, April 29, 2010

Truth be told, this door to our master bath has probably only been opened a half a dozen times since we moved into Casa Wilkerson three months ago. Why are we giving this space the cold shoulder?…

It’s scary, and not just cosmetically. Sure the room is a smidge on the dated side, but as far as functionality goes, it’s a wreak. Both the shower pan and pipe underneath the toilet leak, rendering our master bath virtually useless.

Until now! Time to turn this wasted square footage into a shining master bath oasis.

Thanks to the complexity of properly replacing a shower pan (one episode of Holmes on Homes will tell you that), we are leaving this part of the remodel to the experts. I’ve never seen such a beautiful site…

Now tell me that is not a little slice of heaven on earth. See you back here tomorrow for more demo goodness…and perhaps a mood board for our new bath!

Can't wait to see it! I haven't opened the door to my hall bath since I moved because I'm determined to "fix it" before I use it. Oh and I have a HUGE bare wall in my bedroom that I need help deciding what to put on it! HELP! lol

Your hall bath situation sounds a lot like our master bath! Email me a few pictures of your bedroom and I'll see what ideas I can whip up for that wall of yours. Can't wait to see!

Whoa! I found myself nervous at the sight of the giant hole in your wall. Maybe that is why I decided that a newer house was for me. But I know you will make this look so fabulous that I will now want an older home. Good luck!

Good for you...sometimes calling in an expert is the smartest decision. Can't wait for after photos!

Thanks, Carrie. We knew we would be in over our heads if we tried to tackle the shower pan ourselves.

Thanks, Kelly! If this bath looks half as fabulous as one of your creations, we will be happy campers.
