Continuing with the room reveals at the Edgmon Ranch (previously referred to as the Pink House), today I’m excited to share the remodeled master bathroom!
Not to diminish your excitement over the upcoming kitchen reveal – because it’s really, really good – but the master bathroom just may be my favorite transformation. Its aesthetic and improved functionality are quite enticing – so much so, in fact, that I’m very tempted to move in myself, instead of selling it.
As a reminder, the Edgmon Ranch is our latest investment property, which we just recently finished up and put on the market. When we bought this house, the master bathroom was…let’s call it charming, shall we? With resale value in mind, I wanted to minimize unnecessary costs while completely transforming the space – and I love, love, love the end results. I think you will, too!
Going into the master bathroom remodel, my goal for this space was to make it feel upscale and luxurious – like a mini-getaway in your own home. I took a lot of inspiration from boutique hotels while laying out my design plan for the room. (Head to this post to see the design plan, moodboard and a full tour of how it looked before).
From a resale standpoint, this master bathroom has it all: a double vanity, a walk-in shower and jetted tub, a separate water closet, a large walk-in closet, vaulted 12-foot ceilings, so much natural light, a view of the mountains… I don’t know what else one could possibly want in a master bathroom.
The room size is quite impressive, too.
Let’s start with the vanity. This beautiful piece came ready-made with a Carrara marble top from Lowe’s and would’ve cost $2500+ if we were to order it custom from a cabinet-maker. Design tip: If you can find the vanity cabinet and the top together, it’s almost always a better deal (not to mention less hassle) than if you were to buy them separately.
I really liked the open shelf situation here, which not only provides additional storage but also makes the piece look more custom and the overall size of the room more open. Another quick design tip: Baskets and trays help corral bathroom necessities while simultaneously adding warmth and texture to the space. Baskets are my go-to styling trick for when I want to add texture and warmth to a room. It’s such a nice, organic contrast to my preferred white, black and gray aesthetic.
On to the mirrors… They are one of my favorite elements here; they really elevate this space to luxury status. The “Marcello” mirrors from Howard Elliott feature a shadowbox-style frame with rounded corners. The rectangular shape is very traditional, but the rounded corners add a modern, feminine touch. It’s such a satisfying juxtaposition of classic and modern elements.
Next up is the built-in jetted tub.
While I do love a free-standing bathtub (remember the clawfoot beauty in our bungalow?), it didn’t make financial sense to rip out the existing tub, especially because it actually fit the design aesthetic. The built-in aspect adds a bit of classic flair to the room, which is great because going too modern wouldn’t have fit the style of this house.
Speaking of style, I’ve dubbed this one “modern European” – and it’s especially evident in the master bathroom and kitchen, with contrasting traditional and modern elements, with a good dose of European flair.
I was very adamant about replacing the recessed light above the tub with a chandelier. Seeing the end results makes me so happy I stood my ground!
The jetted tub and surrounding windows are the first thing you see when you walk into the master bathroom, and I wanted to create a really special moment there with a statement-making chandelier.
This brass and crystal option does just that – wouldn’t you agree?
I especially love the juxtaposition of the ultra-glam crystal with the more utilitarian look of brass; plus, the round shape adds visual interest to an otherwise linear corner and sloping ceiling line.
Design tip: If you want to use a chandelier in your bathroom remodel, consider the height and slope of your ceiling. How will the fixture interact with the other lines in the room?
Chandeliers take up more space – physically and visually – than recessed lighting. Because of that, they work best in bathrooms that are at least 100 square feet or ones with high or vaulted ceilings. Thankfully, this master bathroom checks off both of those boxes.
Let’s talk about those beautiful floors. This porcelain, patterned tile features a matte, hand-painted look and is surprisingly so affordable! Check out my roundup of favorite patterned tile options if you’re in the market for a similar look.
I used the “Charcoal” grout from Polyblend to accentuate the patterned design.
Speaking of affordable, can you believe the price of these sconces?! They look absolutely beautiful in person, too – such a great buy! The finish is a perfect brass, and they give off great, diffused light because of their inner opaque globe.
The product description says “mid-century,” but the style could easily sway from mid-century modern to industrial to vintage glam. Every time I’ve shared these sconces on Instagram, I get a dozen messages asking where they’re from. They look so much more expensive than they actually are.
In fact, I liked them so much, I used the same ones in our guest bathroom reno, too.
I’m all about layering finishes, so for the plumbing fixtures I went with a cool chrome finish.
Mixing finishes is so much more interesting than having everything match, wouldn’t you agree? It adds so much depth and visual interest to a room. I opted for Moen’s “Gibson” faucet for its streamlined, luxe appearance. The design mimics the look of exposed piping, but the arched spout adds just the right touch of softness. We also updated the crystal knobs on the tub with a faucet from the same collection – and it is stunning!
Well, you’ve officially seen the master bathroom from every possible angle.
If you’ve stuck around this long, thank you! I so appreciate all of you who follow along with our renovating adventures and encourage us along the way. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed the process and walked away with inspiration and some new discoveries to add to your wish list.
More bathroom-related posts are in the works. I have a source list and budget breakdown, as well as vanity, hardware, sconce and plumbing roundups… If there’s anything else you’d like to know, I’m always happy to share!
