Need Finishing Help for Master Bath
December 27, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We bought our house 6 months ago. We turned a 4th unused bedroom into our master bath. We used the existing cherry cabinetry, which we will keep. The countertops and sinks are going, but not sure what to replace them with. Need ideas on backsplash too. We installed the flooring and shower, painted the walls and replaced all the molding. Also, my husband was going to build a vanity to match the counter and replace the desk/vanity, but I like the desk/vanity. Any ideas on how to incorporate this with the counter sink next to it? Do a backsplash there too? Or build a new vanity? The outlets seem too high also. Should we lower them or make them part of the backsplash? Not sure what to do with this whole area on both sides of the room. Any ideas are greatly appreciated!

I'd like to see the vanity match the cabinetry for a cohesive look. Take a look at this photo for an idea of how it can look - notice the backs plash treatment.

When you replace your counters avoid the little built-in back splash. It'll free you up to choose what you want . I'd repeat the mosaic you have in the shower above the counters. The outlets would be better if they were lower.

As for the desk, it looks like a nice piece. Is there another place in your home for it?

Take a look at wild rice or Shitake from Caesarstone for the countertops. It will tie in with the mosaic that you have in the shower as well as your floor.

I do like how that vanity looks. The whole section looks nice. I think we'll end up going in that direction.

Maybe fully extending the vanity and make up area and add some wall cabinets for storage.
A large mirror will give a great reflective quality and make your space feel bigger.

It worked great for these clients!

Beautiful job, love the shower tile. I would put the desk elsewhere (it is really nice) and build a frame to put the same counter top on from your current vanity to the wall. It would be as low as your desk. You can buy wood to match what you have. If you can buy a drawer base and undercounter drawer that would be even better. More storage.

Hi lynnhaefele - I'm glad the photo helped with your decision. You have a classic and nicely done bath. I think the desk would be more suitable for an eclectic style bathroom. I do like the seating near the bath tub in Renaissance's photo. It looks like you might have room for one near your tub.

I know from personal experience how nice it is to sit for a moment after a hot bath!

The desk/vanity area should simply be a slab of the same material. Avoid extra cabinety to add a more elegant look. the entire wall should be mirrored. you may want to add some wall light sconces to dress it up.
