Master Bathroom


We mentioned in previous posts about the master bathroom renovation is going to be one of those projects that’s “on the back burner” until we complete the hall bathroom. Simply because we want to do these renovations completely debt free. Therefore, we aren’t having anything installed until we have cash in hand. So needless to say, this renovation has been coming along slowly but surely. With things like finding an awesome deal on the bathroom countertops (more about that here) and planning out a DIY vanity on the cheap (more about that later), we’ve been able to move this project along a little faster than we thought.

With things coming together faster than expected, we decided to go ahead and have the glass installed in the shower. This is one of the bigger things (time- and expense-wise) we had to do in this bathroom, and, honestly, we were tired of the cheap shower curtain/tension rod solution in our comfortable, awesome, new shower.

This morning, the glass for the shower was installed. Yesterday, we showed you how we’ve been taking showers lately with a temporary shower curtain. Well, gone are the days of our “klassy” setup! Now we have a “glassy” setup! Yes, I went there.

By the way, please excuse the weird lighting. We haven’t installed light fixtures yet, so we’re temporarily using some blueish compact florescent bulbs that we got for free in the mean time. They’re definitely not going to be sticking around after we install the right fixtures. Regardless, there’s a catch to this glass install: we have to wait 48 hours to use it! Good thing we have another full bath, eh?

It may sound odd to some, but our favorite part of the new shower is the handle. It’s very similar to the vanity hardware we are using in both the bathrooms. It’s sleek and simple without being too modern.

Overall, we love everything about this shower. It’s large enough to feel luxurious but not too large to take up too much of the bathroom. And it’s just as relaxing as any bathtub.

    I looooooove your shower. You have a good eye for tile. I always find tile difficult to pick out for some reason.

    I’m assuming the first time you’ll be able to use your shower for the first time on Christmas. That’s a cool Christmas present to yourselves!

    It’s beautiful, but I would never do the glass for fear of catching a glimpse of my naked self while showering! GAH! Of course, this is only a problem if your shower is across from a big old bathroom mirror…haha
