We are so excited to finally share our bathroom makeover reveal!! We were honored to work with my friend, designer Sarah Sherman Samuel, on the design of the bathroom makeover, and she nailed it, of course! It’s everything we hoped for and then some.

I wanted the overall feel of the bathroom makeover to be clean and spa-like but with a subtle rustic touch. We added in some shiplap on one side of the room to give it a bit of that farmhouse vibe but kept everything else fairly modern.

The bathroom was super small before we gutted it, so we pushed it out a little to make room for a double sink, which was a must for us! I used two of the Kohler’s Kathryn under-mount sinks in white and we absolutely love them!!

We used all Kohler products in the bathroom, and I honestly could not be happier with them. The quality, style, and finish color. it’s all so good!

Bathroom Faucets

For the faucets, we decided to go with the Purist wall mount (we went back and forth between the wall and deck mount!) in brushed gold. They’re sleek and modern and feel so luxurious!

We’re beyond happy with the look and the quality of them and have gotten so many compliments on the fixtures. The pop-up drain in brushed gold matches perfectly too!

If you decide on wall-mount faucets, it’s a little more work trying to line everything up with the sink, counter, lights, mirrors, and faucets, but worth it to have really clean counter space. I love not having to clean in between a faucet!

Bathroom Lights

The lights!! I just adore the 6” Athena Cedar & Moss wall sconces and the way they look centered between each mirror. They’re stunning and we’re so familiar with Cedar & Moss now that we’ve used them throughout our entire house. I love the cohesiveness it brings to the home.

The Jonathan Adler brass hand ring holder was a gift from Zan years ago. I still love and use it every day!

Bathroom Tile

The tile was really fun to pick out from Fireclay. Sarah gave me a few choices and I ended up going with the classic large 6″ hexagon from Fireclay in London Fog.

I can’t express how much I LOVE the color of the tile! It’s the most beautiful shade of blue-gray that I’ve ever seen. We did the 2″ hexagon on the shower floor and love it.

Bathroom Countertops

We used the exact same gorgeous counter from Caesarstone in Calacatta Nuvo in the bathroom that we did in our kitchen! We ordered two slabs and used them both! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… it’s literally the BEST!!

Easiest cleanup, no stains, so durable. I can’t even imagine not having it in our house now. We are such huge fans! Having quality fixtures and counters makes such a big difference.

If you’re looking to spruce up a laundry closet in your home, here are some laundry closet ideas that are easy to do and make a huge difference!

We had a hard time finding a vanity we liked in the size we wanted, so we had one custom-made.

The main concern here for Zan and me was having enough bathroom storage for hairdryers, towels and all the other bathroom items we use… ahem, a drawer-full of make-up!! To solve that problem we did 6 large drawers! It’s SO great to finally have room for my hairdryer and flat iron!!

We wanted the look of a thick counter, so we had the cabinetmaker and fabricator figure that part out… I think that’s the hardest part about the remodel,  trying to coordinate all of the small details so that one thing wouldn’t mess something else up.

Bathroom Shower Tile

For the shower tile, we chose the Fireclay 1×6 sheeted tile in Sugar (how perfect!) for a super clean, serene look. It feels very fresh in there and I love the simplicity of it. It’s really gorgeous. The tile is also sheeted so that helped tremendously when installing it.

We continued the fixtures in brushed gold throughout the shower and added Kohler’s Showerhead. The showerhead is certified to meet flow, force, and water coverage for water efficiency. It has a 3-part turn for different pressures, and we love it.

The kids actually shower in our bathroom now because they love that they can have room to play and also change the pressure of the showerhead to the rain water. Romeo is always asking us to switch it to that setting for him! Ha!

I had our cabinet maker install custom floating shelves for products and storage. I really love having the extra room to store things!

For the toilet, we chose San Souci because of its simple look. One one-piece toilet integrates the tank and bowl into a seamless, easy-to-clean design, which I really loved. It has a soft-close seat that prevents the seat from slamming… imperative living with 3 boys!

  1. I love the look so I copied it with very similar colours. What is the paint colour you used? I’m having a problem finding the perfect white–please let me know what you used.

  2. I love your bathroom, especially the vanity! I’ve been having a hard time finding the style I want, so I’m thinking I need a custom vanity. I live near LA. Can you share the name of your cabinet maker? If not, I understand.

    • Hi! I would love to share but I don’t even think he’s doing it anymore. We had a really hard time even getting him to come back and finish the project!

    • Hi! Thank you so much. The shade is a Roman shade we had done by a local person. You can find them online and get them custom made too!

  3. Your bathroom is so beautiful!! What’s the secret to keeping the white bathroom clean? I LOVE that KitKat tile but the thought of cleaning all those grout lines is kinda killing it for me!

  4. Do you remember what grout you used? I decided to use this same tile in my bathroom after reading this post and am trying to find the right grout for it!

  5. Beautiful bathroom all around!! So inspiring as we’re planning some updates to our bathroom. Would you share the mirrors and paint color sources? Thank you!

    • Hi Toni! It’s white oak and we actually did like a clear finish on it, which turned it this color. We did two coats! It was lighter before we added the clear sealant.. it didn’t end up being clear though. Haha!

      • Love your taste so much! What is the process like for getting a custom vanity made? Is it difficult? Any tips on doing so without breaking the bank?

  6. I love the floor tile and have been looking at the same exact one. The only thing that worries me is the gloss finish. Is it slippery?

    • Hi! It’s actually not really that bad. We do have a rug on the floor when we get out of the shower, but no one has slipped and it’s been fine! It looks SO good!!

    • My wife absolutely loves the floor tile too. I’m renovating our first house and doing my best to give her the home she’ll love. Can you please let me know what color you ended up using and what color grout?
