I've been wanting to share some of the before & after pictures of our remodel that we did a couple of years ago, so I thought I'd start with a space I haven't shared very much, but when I do on my stories I tend to get a lot of questions. You guys, I am really embarrassed to show you the before pictures of our old master bathroom... it was really really dated and the picture quality is so bad! But in order to see the transformation you need to see both pictures.
Prior to our remodel, you could access our master bath from both our bedroom and the upstairs hallway. In order to build another bath on our upper level for the nursery, we needed to change the floor plan a bit, so the orientation of the bathroom looks a little different. Now you can only access it from the master suite. We didn't have tons of space for our new bathroom, and we decided to eat into the master bath space by building a "his closet" in the space behind the sinks (the door in the middle of our sinks leads to Todd's closet). I am not a bath person at all so if it were up to me I would've just left one out, but for resale you can't exactly do that, and it's doubled as a "baby jail" for P, so at least its getting some use. I'll put him in our big tub and let him play with toys while I get ready. :) I had wanted to do a free-standing tub, but for budget reasons ended up going with the built in tub instead.
Picking tile was really overwhelming for me. There were so many options to choose from and so many different designs. I knew I wanted a lot of marble, but my budget didn't allow for me to do all of the tile in marble. So here are a few of my money saving tips:

I love that our builder made these vanities to look like they were furniture pieces with the legs. Cabinetry was all custom built. (Ignore the wear and tear.)
