Let's take another tour today! Our Modern Farmhouse Master Bath is next on the list and I've loved sharing pieces of our new home with you all!
If you haven't yet checked out our Modern Farmhouse Classroom and The House That We Built, I've linked them here for you.
If I had to choose a favorite room in this home, I simply couldn't. It would probably be a close tie for first between our kitchen and my sons classroom, with our master suite and bathroom coming in a very close second.
Today I am taking you on a tour of our master bath, a room I have dreamed of since I moved out on my own almost 20 years ago. Goodness, that statement made me feel super old. Has it really been that long since I stepped foot in my own little apartment in California?
This space is light, it's serene. Our goal for our bathroom was to make a sanctuary of a space, somewhere we could retreat too in the mornings to have a quiet start with God and a little coffee. As well as a space to retreat to in the evenings for a hot steamy shower, or a place for face masks, foot treatments and anything else my little heart desired during my "self-care" time.
While staying on budget, we each chose a couple of things in the house that we wanted as a "luxury feature". One of mine was a spa shower. The pebble floor, a large seat to relax and floor to ceiling glass we're inspired by various resorts we've stayed at and to this day, three months after being in our new home I still LOVE stepping into each day.
The other was a double vanity (we had never had one before!). The cabinet space next to each sink (both below the sink as well as the counter top uprights) give Doug and I plenty of space for all of our skincare and bathroom storage needs. Located next to the pony wall/toilet area is also a large area of cabinets where we store extra toiletries, our towels and linens as well as my gardening tools.
My sweet husband surprised me with two additions to this room which has always made it feel extra special to me as well - a coffee bar and an upgraded closet door to our walk in closet. The frosted door on our closet adds more light and openess to the room, while the coffee bar allows for a space to wake up slowly in the morning before making my way to the kitchen.
We also have a glass door to the side garden (which built in blinds between the panes of glass for easy cleaning!), which makes the flow of the house work so well when needing to tend to the yard, go for a walk outside or (less glamorously, take out the garbage).
I even had a cute helper who wanted to do "house photography" with his camera!
As for the details, we opted for chrome fixtures and glass to up the luxury feel. As opposed to my sons brushed nickle accents for a more modern/masculine feel as he grows up. Our shower tile and rock floor compliment our grey wood tiles nicely and overall the room has the clean, sleek look we envisioned.
What is your favorite room in your home? Do you have a place where you feel you can reset and relax?
