Extreme Master Bath Makeover
Today is the day of the biggest transformation in the whole entire beach cottage renovation! It’s safe to say this is one EXTREME MASTER BATH MAKEOVER.
Hold up! I know your are anxious to scroll down to the pretty photos, but first, you really need to see the before photos to truly appreciate the after! This is the situation we were dealing with and the plans of demolition. The bathroom was so dated. Once again, we had wallpaper to contend with and another wallpaper banner. The previous homeowner REALLY loved those banners! The brass faucets and light fixtures were not the “brass IS BACK!!” kind of brass either!
The layout of the bathroom wasn’t too bad originally, but the shower felt too small and I didn’t like stepping out of the shower into the toilet. Who does, right?
The master closet was bigger than we needed. The best solution to expanding the shower was to move it into the closet and stop at the wall there. The perfect solution to really open up the bathroom. The whole renovation of the house all started with this bathroom. We were at the point where it had to be remodeled. The tile in the shower had missing grout and water had leaked behind the wall. Of course that led to mold. I kind of love when a health hazard in the home just leads to a whole new renovated space! Shhh! Don’t tell my hubby I said that!
I definitely put the most effort into designing this space. I wanted it to feel like a spa, but not too over the top considering it is a beach cottage. I first shared this design board I had created HERE.
This is how I visualize a space by layering the design elements together. In my head I can make it look right, but often on the design board it may need some tweaks. Wait to see if I came close to this original vision.
Now, do you remember when I showed you demolition day? Seeing this room gutted to the studs HERE was such a good feeling! Seeing walls knocked out and old brass fixtures in the trash made my heart skip a beat! Did you hear me squeal just a little?! I LOVE this bathroom so much that I can’t even stand it! I have been looking forward to this reveal day for weeks now!! You may think there is a whole lot of white wall going on. Personally, I’m loving it, but know that I’ll most likely be adding more spa inspired elements to this space in the coming months and sharing that with you later.

We have wrapped up a FULL 2 weeks of renovation reveals! In case you missed any of them you can see them here: KITCHEN, DINING ROOM, LIVING ROOM, BEDROOM, GUEST BATHROOM. Thank you all so much for all of your love and excitement you have shared with me here and on INSTAGRAM! Your excitement just drives me more to do the thing I’m so passionate about…design!
Hi Shauna! I just discovered your blog from your Instagram account. I am totally in love (and awe) with you beach cottage reno. I’m gathering lots of inspiration for my own little cottage redo. This is my first visit to the blog so this has probably already been answered… what happened to the niche in the shower? You know the little space to store your Suave shampoo and Irish Spring soap? 🙂
Hi! Welcome to the blog and thank you for your sweet comments! The shampoo niche is actually in the boy’s shower which is the Black + White bathroom I revealed earlier this week. I didn’t want a niche in the master shower because I didn’t want to take away from the focal wall of tile. I have no problem putting my shampoo on the shower floor…LOL! Thanks for stopping by!
This bathroom just makes my heart do flip flops, Shauna! The black, white and brass are just so perfect and stunning. Love the clean palette of this space and really the beautiful, timeless floors! This bathroom deserves to be in BHG one day, for sure!!!
Bree, thank you so much! You know this bathroom has been my sweet spot! I have to say, those floors are truly the icing on the cake. I took a risk but am so happy with the outcome!
Wow I would say this is stunning. I love everything you did!
Thank you so much Rhonda!
SHUT THE FRONT DOOR!! There are no words. I am just going to live forever in my happy place. Which is your new bathroom. 🙂
Thank you Erin!! I must admit I’m pretty smitten too!
I’m in awe once again – the entire house is perfection, Shauna! You are super woman!!! I’m in love with the master vanity and I’m hoping to do something very similar in my master bath! I’m looking forward to finding out more about it! Love it all!! xoxo
Thank you so much Tam!xoxo
WOW!!! You have outdone yourself on this one Shauna!! I am in awe of everything. The details are so rich and beautiful. The tile, hardware, the black and white color scheme. Love all. Thanks for the polished inspiration! Hugs xoxo
Thank you Kristi! So happy you love it as much as I do!
Just saw this at Kristy’s blog and I am blown away. Absolutely gorgeous and now you have me wanting to rip out all my bathroom tile and put in a new floor. LOVE yours!
Thank you!! You’re so sweet!
Hello. This bathroom is stunning! I came across it when looking for gold round mirrors for my girls bathroom. We are building now, and in the middle of picking out faucets. So many beautiful choices. Would you mind sharing if your faucets are champagne bronze? I saw that your pulls are brushed brass, and wondering about the coloring. It looks perfect in the pics, but wanted to make sure I knew the correct color of the faucets. Thank you!
Hi Lori, yes the faucets are champagne bronze by Delta. I love their finish and they pair beautifully with the brass hardware. Best to you in your home build journey!
Love the floors! What color grout did you use?
Thank you!The grout is a charcoal grey.
WOW!!! Perfection, congratulations. Two weeks and beautiful results. May I inquire as to where you purchased your vanity? I’m stuck…. Thank you
Thank you Darlene! The master bath vanity was custom. 🙂
Beautiful! Thank you for sharing your designs. I was wandering … did you use Charcoal Gray grout on the walls also?
Thank you Cathy! Yes, the grout is a dark gray????
