When we moved into our home, my husband and I took hold of all the projects and got to work immediately. Since we lived here, there has been an endless amount of things to get done, all of which we pretty much did ourselves. It has been a tiring two years for sure. I knew when I saw a photo of the house that it was the one for us and I was right. It just needed a lot of love.

The last major space that needed to be renovated was our master bath. Besides having no heat, it was seriously outdated and very small. The jacuzzi tub was too big for the room, as well as the toilet, and due to the layout there was so much space wasted. It drove us both nuts. Two years using this bathroom was two years too long. So I am sure you can imagine how excited I was that we were getting it redone. And we didn’t have to do it!

Since last Thursday the contractors have been working hard to bring my vision to life. I knew what I wanted from the start so translating my design was easy. I imagined it would look modern with a vintage touch. We couldn’t change much of the format of the space but was able to open up more of it for storage. This was a major element for me. I chose all white tile for the shower and floor and a light gray for the walls so it felt more airy and spacious. The new white vanity and medicine cabinet will tie in well and the brand spanking new tub and toilet are going to make a huge difference in updating the look.

Watching the stages of its transformation has been fun but getting our bathroom back fresh and new is going to be simply amazing. These are the photos I took when we first looked at the house. The previous owners did nothing for the space, as you can see. How depressing! I look at these and finally smile because its in the past. We both feel so lucky to have had this renovation done and have it reflect our Chicago remodeling style. It surely needed a makeover and now it can truly shine.

{I will be posting about the process and final results soon!}
