Simple Master Bathroom Refresh

Refreshing an outdated master bathroom doesn’t need to be complicated. By simply replacing an existing vanity with classic, elegant dark cabinetry, and adding modern accessories with a playful tile, your space will quickly begin to feel like a luxurious retreat.

On episode 2, season 4 of Fixer to Fabulous, Jenny and Dave Marrs renovated the home of the McGhee family. The McGhees were eager to complete their long-delayed dream house remodel, and Jenny and Dave fulfilled their dreams and more! In addition to a major kitchen renovation, you can read about it here, Jenny and Dave incorporated meaningful touches throughout the home, which included a master bathroom refresh using Waypoint Living Spaces cabinetry and some fun, new accessories and accents. 

Dark Cabinetry

No matter the size of your space, light walls and bold, dark cabinetry makes an elegant statement. In the McGhee’s home, Jenny and Dave went with Waypoint cabinets in 650 painted black for the bathroom vanity with modern gold 6" tab pulls.

Modern Accessories

Modern accessories are a fool proof way to refresh a master bath. Using hardware, faucets, sconces, and racks with simple, clean lines creates a cohesive, timeless look that is up to date. By investing in quality, classic cabinets, hardware, and other features can be easily changed out over time when you’re ready for a refresh again!

Playful Tile

Unique, playful tile is a great way to add personality to your master bath refresh. Bright, colorful tile is a gorgeous trend we love, but if something more neutral is your speed, tile comes in plenty of fun shapes and patterns with natural colors. We love how Jenny and Dave paired three different tiles with neutral tones together to create visual interest in the McGhee’s bathroom refresh. They chose a large hexagon tile with organic gray tone speckles as an accent in the shower and carried it through the bathroom on to the floor. This design feels one-of-a-kind as well as creates visual depth in a smaller master bath. The vertical light gray subway tiles compliment the large hexagon tiles and draw the eye upward creating the feeling of more space. Finally, the smaller, darker hexagon tiles used on the shower floor coordinates well with the other two tiles and adds visual interest to the space.
