If you want my advice, your master bedroom should be the first room you tackle after the kitchen and main bath. It should be practical and organized and romantic.
Most people, I find leave it to the last. The kids can have spectacular rooms with fresh linens and paint, but the master bedroom can be a dungeon.
Our master bedroom and bathroom was so awful that we moved out of it into one of the other rooms. What was going to be a reno 3 years ago is just about to happen. This photo above is the walk in closet.
And this treat is the adjoining bathroom still sporting it's 1980's Peachy glory.
I do have a gorgeous tufted linen headboard that will be the focal point of this room. This is what was left after the kids moved out, and what has become the unattractive guest room.
The floors will stay. The "popcorn" stucco ceiling-(a Canadian home builders special) will be covered with beadboard and trim to make a subtle tray ceiling.
The closet and the bathroom are side by side. The wall in the middle right about where that crucifix from my Mother in Law (I fear not having it hanging) is coming out. Right where this crucifix is, will be the new opening with a sliding pocket door with frosted glass.
The plan is a freestanding tub on the left. Porcelain sink in the middle, situated so the sight line from the bedroom is smack in middle of it with a mirror above. Toilet to the right.
Carrera marble subway tile and a basket weave carrera and black marble floor.
His Nibs lost out on a separate shower stall here as it would crowd the space and require the toilet to be moved way across the room, and it just wasn't going to give me the long, simple room I wanted. He has a great shower elsewhere.
In lieu if the closet, there will be 2 built in wardrobes on either side of the bathroom door where the existing doors now are.
I am most excited. I love tearing apart the house. We have a great contractor who does a meticulous job, who is not afraid. I will post the progress as we go.
