Master Bathroom Refresh
In previous posts, I had documented how we had repainted almost the entire house. Downstairs, the only rooms that we hadn’t painted were the Master Bathroom and Laundry Room. I had contemplated doing some changes to the Master Bathroom which is why nothing had been changed in there. The laundry room was low priority (and I dreaded the thought of trying to paint around everything in a fairly small space). A couple months ago, we went ahead and repainted both rooms. As always, we wish we had done it sooner.
The Master Bathroom still had the original ivory ceiling and trim and khaki walls. Everything coordinated well together, but it didn’t coordinate well with the new Master Bedroom and Master Closet color schemes.
First, we painted the ceiling and trim Behr Silky White. Just like the rest of the house. Then we moved on to painting the walls Behr Sculptor Clay which is very similar to Benjamin Moore’s Revere Pewter. Below is an “in progress” pic where you can see the big difference between the old wall color and the new. So much brighter!
It is now a nice, neutral color that still goes well with the existing finishes. And it now blends well with the surrounding rooms.
We also replaced the chandelier over the bathtub with a small ceiling fan. It may not be the most popular design choice, but, again, it’s one of those things we wish we had done along time ago. It makes a significant difference on hot summer days when the room is filled with shower steam and the hair dryer blowing. (Info about the window design HERE.)
