Our Master Bathroom: Before & Afters Plus A Budget Breakdown!

frank lampard

We waited over 6 years to start our master bathroom renovation and now, nearly 6 months later, it’s fully completed! And you know what that means – the master bathroom curse that we discovered over the last month definitely seems to be in play (more on that here). All jokes aside (but really, is the curse a real thing, because it seems like it might be?!), let’s put all of this waiting to an end and get to the goods. Including a source list and a full budget breakdown at the end of this post!

14 Genius Small Bathroom Design Ideas

14/14

However, make sure to pick just one funky pattern or colour (either for the wall or floor) as too much will be, well, too much.

3 Master Bathroom Features I’ve Come to Love

frank lampard

When my husband and I were in the market for a new home about 10 years ago, we had certain requirements that house needed to fulfill — a spacious kitchen, an attached garage, and a comfortable master bathroom. The latter was important, because in our previous house, we’d found ourselves routinely battling it out for space in front of our small master bathroom sink, and actually stepping on each other’s toes as we moved between the vanity and shower.

In our new home, we insisted on a larger master bathroom — but that wasn’t all. We also wanted certain features that would make that space even more usable and shareable, and now, 10 years later, I can say that I’m particularly grateful for the following.

1. Double sinks

Many couples share a single bathroom sink and get by just fine. But I’m the type who needs room to spread out

Transgender “Bathroom Bills:” Inside the Debate

frank lampard

This week a judge in Virginia district court will consider a question coming before lawmakers and school principals across the country: should transgender Americans always be allowed to use the restrooms where they feel the most comfortable? And is it discrimination when they’re forced to do otherwise? Here is a primer on why the bathroom question is such a hot-button issue and why it’s likely to show up in our newsfeeds in coming months.

Bathrooms and fights for civil rights go hand-in-hand. In the Jim Crow era, bathrooms—along with water fountains and lunch counters—were places that might be marked with “white only” signs. The bathroom has also been a battleground for women and handicapped workers fighting for equal treatment in the workplace. Because of the nature of things people do in the bathroom, it can be a space where they feel exposed or vulnerable and therefore resist change. It
