New Home Project #1

Please excuse my Monday blog absence , I have moving on the brain! All of it. The packing (when should we start?), the transportation (how big of truck/how long do we need it?), and every other logistic has been running through my head. I can confidently say that moving is one of my least favorite things, and this will be our third time doing so this year. I am over it, to say the very least.¬†Anyway, today’s post ¬†is not about boring you with moving details. It’s way more exciting. We’re talking bathroom remodel!

Behind moving, the second thing swirling around in my crowded brain is orchestrating two major renovation projects in the next month. The first project in our new home will be the master bath. Yes, friends, I said MASTER. Prior to this home, Kyle and I have had only one bathroom and we honestly can’t believe we will have our own bathroom in this next house. Heck yes. BUT. Our new “master” bath is small. Tiny, actually. So we have to get creative and work with what we have, as we don’t have room in the budget to change the layout. So without further ado, here is what we are working with…

 

I know there will be LOTS and LOTS of future posts on this small room (and more pictures!), so for today, I’ll just stick with photos and a design board of what we are thinking about for this room. A few things to note….this room is not a good reflection of where we plan on taking the other rooms in the house style-wise. It’s much more stuffy and predictable than we like. However, because this is the “master” bath and because it is small (not much room for unique pieces/creative sink options/decor items) we want it to be comfortable and plush.

When might we begin tackling this project, you ask? If all goes well, we will get the keys next week and start renovating that same day…there’s not time to waste, we have a new bathroom on the brain.

    Beautiful! Can’t wait to see how it turns out! Congrats on the move… I know it’s a huge P.I.T.A., but just try to keep thinking about all the awesome things you’re going to be able to do with the new house. :)

    I am working on a master bath also due to a flood we had. Do you prefer stained or a painted cabinet? Would love to know the name of the paint color you are using with the carrara hexagon. Thanks

    Can’t wait to see how it turns out! I too have a small master bathroom (probably the same size) in the condo we have. We’ve been in it 2.5 years and I have yet to touch it except for paint. But its starting to really get on my nerves now so I see a full renovation in our future as well. Good luck!

    I am a North Portlander, and I have that exact sink and vanity, with the exception that my sink is lavender. (So is my tub, but that’s another matter…) :) Want to come do my bathroom next??? Good luck and I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

    So exciting! Can’t wait to see what you guys do with it. This can sometimes be spendy, but just an unsolicited suggestion :) If you open up the wall to the right of the shower door, and replace it with glass, the room with feel so much bigger! Just an idea!

    Hey Kirsten! Love the design board. I recently renovated my master bath with similar colors (soft gray and white with chrome hardware and faucets). West elm has some great yellow/citron bath accessories, hand towels and bath mats that really bring in a pop of color and sunshininess :) I am particularly in love with the hammam stripe hand towel in white/citron. I think you would dig it too! Good luck and happy demoing!

    Let me know if you need any help with the bathroom remodel. I did two of them before I even moved into my place. (I also have a great contractor if you need one.)

    I’m just getting caught up on blog reading and OMG! You got your house!! I’m so excited for you and Kyle. The house is awesome — it’s perfect for your creativity and talents :) .

    And, I love this mood board, I think it’s the perfect place to begin with a new house. You could always update with a beautiful and unique piece later as you come across it.
