My ORC Master Bath Makeover Plans, kinda!

Sharing is caring!

Our ORC Master Bath Makeover Plan is full of beautiful marble tiles, quartz, and color!

Welcome, guys! I’m so excited to be joining in my 2nd One Room Challenge. Last fall, I shared my Colorful Modern Farmhouse Living Room Makeover. I love how that turned out so much, I went with some similar ideas for my ORC Master Bath Makeover Plan.

This Master Bathroom makeover is the last major remodeling project left to do here. And, it’s long overdue, guys. We’ve been living with a nasty shower door for 7 years now. Plus, chipped up paint on the vanities, outdated tile, a stained shower floor, and a broken roman tub faucet. Seriously, I’ve turned the water on and off with a wrench for over a year now. 🙂

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably seen a few of my bathroom posts already. The plumbers came out a couple of weeks ago to do the demo and plumbing changes. I’ll share more info on the demo in the next post. Now, that they’re gone I’m busy tiling. I’ve got so much to do in there. But first, let’s see those sad, sad before photos, right?! 😉

Yay! It's finally happening. I'm giving our Master Bathroom a much needed makeover. Here's the ORC Master Bath Makeover plan full of beautiful marble tile, chrome fixtures, pretty wood decor, and pops of blue. #AbbottsAtHome #BathroomDesign #MarbleTile #MasterBathroom #BathroomIdeas

ORC Master Bath Makeover Plan – Before Photos

Here's a look at our Master Bathroom before the big makeover. It has 2 vanities, a big roman tub in front of a bay window and a walk in shower.
Here’s the view of our Master Bathroom as you walk in from the bedroom. On the right we have 2 large walk in closets separated by the walk in shower. On the left, it’s my vanity (not shown) and the large jacuzzi tub. My husbands vanity and the water closet are at the back.

This room has high ceilings that I plan to take advantage of by adding a paneled ceiling and tall mirrors above each vanity. The vanities are dinged up and tired after 20 years of use. But, they are a pretty style and are built in 3/4″ wood custom cabinets. So, I’ll keep them and give those a makeover. Can you tell the tub faucet is broken? My 3 year old is kinda strong, guys. He busted it in 2 places. I really don’t like the location of that faucet around little kids. So, I’m moving that faucet to the wall.

The ceilings also have quite a few weird angles. I hope the new design down plays those angles. I’m also lightening up the walls with my favorite neutral color, Behr’s Sandstone Cove.

This window is fantastic for letting in lots of light. But that jetted tub is way to big and we don’t use the jets. So, I’m switching that to a deep soaking tub.

This shower door is that horrible gold AND it’s corroded all along the bottom. I’m so happy to see this go. 🙂

ORC Master Bath Makeover Plan – Design Struggles

I always struggle with the design on a room. I’m not a designer, at all. But, I try to imagine everything together to get a good design. I’ve been planning out this room for a few months. I new I wanted to lighten up this room with the neutral paint color I’ve been loving in this house.

I also wanted to stick with the style I’ve been going for in the rest of the house. I think of it as a mix of Traditional, with all of the mouldings and wainscoting in this house, with the comfortable and inviting feel of Modern Farmhouse. And, I always add pops of bold color to that look.

I thought marble tile would work out perfectly in this room. It’s a nice neutral color, but with a touch of glamour. The bold color will come in on the vanities, rug, and the wall art. I’ve gone back and forth on the exact tiles to use.

I mean literally, back and forth, from the store over and over with sample tiles. 😉 I tend to change my design on a plan up until the minute I have to install something. But, the general idea is always the same. Here’s a look at some of the options I’ve been looking at.

A few months ago, I started with this idea for the ORC Master Bathroom Plan. Marble mosaic accents with neutral walls and pops of wood and dark blue or dark green.

In the last month, I thought I’d go with the leaf marble mosaic with a pebble shower floor, and marble-look porcelain flooring. I just needed to pick between a marble subway (top left) or a white ceramic subway (shown below) as the main shower tile.

Then last week, I panicked and decided I needed wood look floor tile instead. I searched everywhere and only found 1 I liked. But, it’s only sold in huge pallets, so I went back to the original marble-look porcelain.

Here it is. The design mixes Traditional Style with my colorful take on Modern Farmhouse. Look at that Pottery barn Mirror and that huge Mirabelle Soaking Tub! I’m very excited about this design. What do you think?

  1. Lovely, there are so many beautiful choices out there. Growing up I think all I ever saw was pink, blue, yellow and beige shiny square tile. Yuck. Thank you for sharing on the Classy Flamingos Blog Party this week. poinsettiadr.com
