When we moved in to our fixer upper three years ago we were a bit overwhelmed with how many projects we had ahead of us. We started with some basic projects and then went into our complete gut and remodel of the kitchen, which took us two whole years to complete.
Once we finished the kitchen, we moved to our three bathrooms. We started with a quick and affordable half bathroom update that connects to our recently updated laundry room. Next we got to our master bathroom and then the hallway bathroom.
Up until these projects we have done every project DIY style, but decided to hire out for the bathrooms to keep our sanity and to get it done quicker than two years, ha. We used Luis and crew from Kings Construction, an amazing and affordable company based in Kansas City.
Here are some before photos of the master bathroom. I didn’t despise this room as much as a few others in our house, but the layout was terrible and everything was squished into the room kind of haphazardly.
Click any photo to enlarge.
The separate closets took up most of the main room, single sink made it difficult for Ted and I to get ready at the same time, the shower was not functioning—we actually never even used it, There was three different types of flooring used, and not much storage.
The list could go on, but it was pretty much a dated and non-functioning space.
Here are a few more…
Again not the worst thing in the world, but we really wanted this space to be updated to our tastes. I also really wanted to find a way to get a deep soaker tub in the space.
We thought we might just update the room as it was to save money, but in the end we decided to demo the whole room and start over from a blank slate. It took us awhile to decide on the perfect layout, but we finally figured it out.
Now onto the demo and construction!
After the gut, which took one full day and filled a huge dumpster, the crew worked on relocating the plumbing to accommodate the new layout. They also replaced the old insulation, added two pocket door inserts, and started the electrical work.

Next they added new water resistant sheetrock and then moved onto mudding and priming. The crew even came on a Saturday to complete that part.
And finally they started on the tiling and finishing details, which took a few weeks.While they were working I was sourcing and ordering numerous products such as mirrors, sconces, shower enclosures, robe hooks…you name it.
In total the master bathroom remodel project took just over a month, and we are in love with the outcome! It feels like a relaxing spa, which is exactly what I was going for.
I was so fortunate to get to work with Lynn Middleton and team at Kitchens and Baths by Briggs located in Kansas City. She helped us find the perfect Moen Align faucets, KOHLER under mount sinks and deep soaker tub.
If you’re in the Kansas City area, I highly suggest you drop by their gorgeous showroom. So many wonderful options to choose from with world-class service!

The wall paint is Grey Owl from Benjamin Moore, but we had it matched at Home Depot (Marquee flat finish). We wanted a grey with a touch of green to coordinate with or master bedroom walls, and are happy with the result.
A closer look at the KOHLER tub because I love it SO much. 🙂
And the view as you walk in the room toward the vanity with soft-close cabinets and drawers from Cabinets Quick, who was also a company that I absolutely loved working with.
They are based in California, but make it so easy to get a custom product. All we had to do was send them the measurements and details of what we were wanting, and they flat shipped the custom vanities to our door, and Ted put them together (see this post for details on that). We worked with them for the half bathroom, master bathroom, and the hall bath vanities. We went with a Thermafoil finish on all three vanities making them very durable.

Let’s look toward the shower. I found this Frameless shower enclosure on Houzz during a great sale. It was the perfect size for the space. We love it.
Here’s a closeup of the gorgeous stone from Rock Tops KC. We went with Calacatta Verona and saved a ton of money using a remnant. The service was amazing and they really took the time to walk me through the warehouse to view all of the stones in the look I was after.
I was so impressed with the selection and service. We will definitely be back!
Here’s a closer look inside the toilet room. I wanted to add some artwork and accessories to this space to give it a little life. The artwork is a digital printable I bought from Etsy years ago, and then edited the colors to better fit our bathroom color palette.
I uploaded it to CanvasOnTheCheap.com and in less than a week, received a 16×20 canvas on my doorstep. The quality is amazing and I’ll definitely be using them again in the future. It fits the space perfectly.

On weekdays I usually get up earlier than Ted, so I love being able to close this door to shield light and sound. The entry doorway is very wide, and we had a hard time finding a door that fit the space perfectly, but this does the trick.
The mirrored pocket door at left is our master closet entrance. It’s a walk in, but unfortunately not all that large. I might blog about it later, but it is nothing special. I wanted the tub, which cut into closet space, but I’m happy with the smaller closet alternative.
And finally, here are some detail shots:
And that’s our master bathroom remodel reveal!
I absolutely love how the room turned out and I love spending time in here. All in we spent about $9,000 on this room including labor and all materials. We got a deal by having Kings Construction do both the master and guest bath at pretty much the same time. I’ll be sharing the hallway bathroom reveal soon once we can finish up a custom shelving project. 🙂
Are you working on any home remodel projects? I’m ready to take a quick break after we finish the hallway bathroom, ha.
