Master Bath Makeover: All the Details With Links!

I was inspired by the blogger @miamiamine who always has an eye for detail. Loved her master bath and recreated the best dupes on my budget!

*This would not have been possible without my friend Luis who does amazing work. He helps me complete my projects and ways provides assistance, recommendations, and solutions! Let me know if you need his number but please remember – I will cut in front of you in line 😜 if I have a new project and a deadline 😂 *and special thanks to my cousins Bev and Dennis who shared their friend with me 💫

A few tips to help:

Consider the Home Depot Credit Card – I signed up both a business and personal one – ended up with $200 credit and more time to pay (I think business allows 60 days days same as cash)

Consider the Tile Shop Credit Card – if you pay it off in 30 days 20% off or depending on the project – 15% off and 6-12 months

* You can return whole boxes and unused pencil and herringbone mats (just remember to keep some in case repairs or issues come up)

Consider the Pottery Barn Credit Card if buying furniture. I purchased my headboard, sofa, and bench and received gift certificates to purchase both lights for free.

The Vanity

The Vanity is a color called Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal – Sherwin Williams will create any paint color you want. (And used Sherwin Williams Paints – For Project – Semi- Gloss)

The actual vanity was existing including the top vanity. Paint and new knobs were selected

The Shower Faucet – Buy Here

As mentioned above – need Quartz from Countertop to create Shower Ledge on the Bottom.

Need floor tiles for the base as well

Shower Glass is spectacular. Opted for space between glass for the door and the work was incredible. If in Columbus, Springfield, Dayton contact Above All Glass Came out quickly, measured and was installed in record time and was perfect at the time of install.

Quartz countertops were cut on site – Discount Granite sets everything up.

So what does this cost???

I have been asked exact amounts for my bathroom and it will always depend on what is being done….for example – if you have to change plumbing or remove bathtubs, rip out difficult flooring, rewire electric….I would estimate high because you always run into issues and unexpected situations. The blogger’s bathroom was over 60k and included marble and designer tub, shower, products – mine is a dupe and my goal was to be 1/4 of her cost or less. I achieved that. It also will depend on if the contractor is getting everything or if you are providing material. For me, I like to get everything and be as involved as possible; but not everyone wants to do this….so to figure out your cost…

If you priced out all materials – to figure out labor and unexpected costs multiply by 2.5 to be safe.

So if all materials (toilet, tile, countertop, glass) was 6000 multiply by 2.5 =$15,000 this will give you a guesstimate before calling a contractor out.

Upgrading the Most Overlooked Space in Your House!

What creates curb appeal? From that initial attractiveness from the street or initial appeal of a property to prospective buyers, neighbors, and those that drive by…..that space…is your Garage!

Garage doors can make or break a house! This house has attention seeking garage doors that mimic the front door; while I am a huge Ohio State fan; I am not particularly a fan of the red garage doors. I would paint both black and call it a day, but the garage doors here are basic, nice garage doors. The house has good exterior colors and the red is not a problem but many people may have an instant emotional reaction to love it or hate it.

Let’s take a look at my house and the elaborate design on the garage doors. They definitely catch your attention and coordinate well with the exterior of the house. The garage doors blend with the house,areaesthetically eye catching and you might find yourself taking a second look.

When looking at garage doors, there are so many choices. Let me explain.

There are many different brands, there are many different types (aluminum, steel, wood, vinyl, and others), there are different colors, variations of windows, insulation factors and the list goes on. 

Knowing that the Overhead Door™ Garage Doors earned the Women’s Choice Award also helps ease my mind knowing other women recommend it. 

Overhead Door™ Brand has a visualization tool where you can take a picture of your house and substitute different styles of garage doors and compare them; even allows you to change the colors! 

There are things with a house that you want to spend your money on, especially if your garage door is visible to the street. You want to invest in having a quality garage door. There is importance of a right garage door and how it significantly impacts the value of a home and that includes design and color. There is a hidden emotional aspect of beauty and the wow factor. So many people fall in love with the outside of a house and the garage door can definitely increase the value of your home and be a solid investment.

Remember these key points:

1. Enhance the architectural design of your place.

2. Creates a unique charm to your house.

3. Adds energy efficiency to your home

4. Adds a personal touch

Choosing to change your garage door is easy; the impact can be epic. 

Take a look at the Overhead Door™ Modern AluminumGarage Door. It is the clear – see through garage doors. With this house, it definitely makes you take a double look. Again, sometimes a garage door can cause that immediate reaction!

Consider giving an Overhead Door™ distributor a call to update your garage door or take a look at the visualization tool. For more information, please click below.

Master Bath Makeover

Unique, creative shower feature highlights top to bottom bathroom makeover!

When looking at taking on a remodel project – you have to be realistic in your wants and needs as well as your budget.

Coming into the project, I knew I wanted the bathroom to be instagram worthy on a budget. One of my favorite bloggers @miamiamine had the most beautiful bathroom and I was inspired to dupe it for 1/4 of the cost.

Guess what? I did it! So let’s take a look at what we were looking at to start.

This was after buying the house

Step 2 was replacing the mirrors and changing the paint

The cabinets and vanity mirrors remained and everything else was taken out. New lights above the vanity, new knobs, quartz countertop definitely made a dramatic change and with the vanity painted Benjamin Moore Kendall Charcoal Color but paint from Sherwin Williams (they will create your favorite colors of any brand) – The walls and trim are Sherwin Williams color Extra White

Among the signature elements of the renovation is the new shower niche, which features plentiful space for soap, shampoo, and other shower accessories.

You will notice the floor is a 4” by 12” tile and in the herringbone pattern which mimics the shower pan and larger herringbone pattern around the shower faucet.

The shower was increased in size and the footprint was expanded to the greatest extent possible. The previous space was functional, but now with the space maximized – it provides a wow effect.

The original whirlpool tub was taken out and this beautiful tub with claw tub faucet was added with a change in the overhead lighting has really changed the space in an efficient and clean manner.

The complete picture…

As mentioned the floor is a herringbone pattern, white with grey pattern; the countertop was white with sparkles, and all fixtures were changed to chrome, and walls and doors painted white. The toilet was replaced with a right height toilet which is in the room in front of the vanity.

I have been asked for specific details on where to buy each item and what was used…this will come next week 👉 stay tuned!
