It’s been a long time coming. Twenty years in fact. Why? Hmmm. Maybe we just got used to walking downstairs every morning to take our showers. Using the shower upstairs meant craning our heads diagonally against the sloping ceiling because the shower head was mounted so low. It also meant showering just right so the water didn’t leak out beneath the shower curtain. Maybe we were used to having a hot tub time machine hanging out in the middle of our bedroom. Apparently we had just adjusted to our circumstances. But after a long, long wait to have a master bath we could actually use, we finally bit the bullet and said, ” It’s time”. And we are so happy with the results!
That’s a concerned Gracie wondering what we are up to.
NEW WALLS GOING UP!
TOUCHING UP THE TILE WORK
REN (OUR CAT) EXPLORING NEW FRONTIERS
AHHH. A BATH FOR A HUMAN, NOT A PONY
A SHOWER THAT WORKS
This was the part of the design that held us up mentally the longest. We struggled with how to achieve the maximum head height for the shower without putting it directly in the middle of the room. After considerable debate (uhh… increasing the budget) we decided a custom shower would probably accomplish this best. And we’re SO happy with the results! This shower is bright, roomy and easier to clean than the tub ever was.
REPURPOSED RECYCLED REUSED
If any readers out there are customers of my store Urban Arts + Crafts, you might recognize these cabinets from our previous store location in Briarcliff Village. We reused the cash register cabinets! These IKEA Akurum cabinets were only 3 years old and still in good shape. My husband just had to switch some drawer fronts and hardware. We added new Corian countertops and they were good as new!
I’m going to go take a bath now.
