Victorian Master Bathroom

This master bathroom was a complete gut and remodel. The only thing that were kept the same were the window and the linen closet, everything else had to go! The previous layout was cramped and not functional for a couple, with only one sink with a small vanity and a small tub/shower combo. Since this house is a Victorian style and my client’s loved those elements, we decided to incorporate a beautiful claw foot tub, the tricky part was figuring out where to put it! In order to make room for a double vanity, claw foot tub, and a shower, we had to remove the hall closet to give us more space in the bathroom and remove the second closet next to the window, which would now be the new home of the tub.

Check out the before’s: Pink and white tile and a cramped layout was leaving a lot to be desired.


The small vanity wasn’t enough for two busy people who need to get ready in the morning.


This is the linen closet that we kept, but refaced. The wall next to it was the hall closet, which we removed to make room for another sink. We’ve just got to hope that the sink is fully functional and will not break on us. However, if it does, we’ll be sure to find a plumber that can help us out.


We had some debate about this closet, whether to put a washer/dryer here or to remove it and make room for the tub. The tub won! We also had to remove this heater and to solve the heating problem, we added in floor heat, which is so cozy.


This is the gorgeous window that we kept.


This is the small and confined shower tub combo that was dark and uninspiring.


Here’s what we did:

We chose white subway tile for the shower and walls to keep with the traditional Victorian style and paired it with the white hexagon floor. The cabinets are white to keep the space bright and fresh and the quartz countertop is white with light grey throughout. We chose quartz for the bathroom countertop because it’s low maintenance, very durable and beautiful. We added chrome fixtures to top off the bathroom to create an elegant and sophisticated bathroom retreat.
