We Are Adding A Master Bathroom! Here Are The Plans & Before Photos

I’m so excited to finally share our master bathroom plans! Currently, in our 1930’s bungalow we have one bathroom. It is tiny and needs a lot of help (see a peek here). We were going to renovate it last year but after getting quotes we felt like we should wait…and then we had the crazy idea to add a bathroom first, and then renovate later.

The master bedroom is an addition that is not original to our home, it is rather large compared to the rest of our house so we always knew a bathroom would fit and still leave a good amount of room for our master.

Here is what our room looked like a few weeks ago before any work was done…

The back of the room will be walled off to create the bathroom. With adding this bathroom, it will change many things about our house. One exciting changes is upgrading our water heater to accommodate for 2 bathrooms and moving it outside. This will also free up a closet in our kitchen to transition into a pantry. Having this extra closet will be a luxury for our small space! 

Another obvious change is to our master bedroom. We originally planned to add wood floors in our room at the same time of the bathroom addition but due to our budget we will do that at a later time. The bedroom will shrink 6 feet in size so we are letting go of our giant platform bed and reconfiguring the room. I’m excited to make our room into a place we actually love after the bathroom is complete.

And lastly, we are excited about the value this bathroom will add to our home! Finding a 3 bed, 2 bath in our area is pretty rare and we feel it will greatly increase our home’s value.

When planning the bathroom, Jordan’s only request was a rain shower head. My requests are rather extensive so I’m learning what to compromise on 😉 I’ve been scanning pinterest for what seems like years planning for this bathroom! It was difficult to narrow those inspiration photos down to what we felt like reflected our style and needs but I feel like we landed at a good spot.


Here are the main features Jordan and I are excited about: 

-Rain Shower Head

-Clean-lined finishes

-Floating vanity

-Herringbone tile floors

-Floor to ceiling white subway tile with white grout

-Frameless glass shower enclosure

-Matte black penny tile in shower

-Sliding door into bedroom to match original doors
