Our Primary Bathroom was one of the first rooms that we completed in our new home. I love how it this modern primary bathroom design turned out.
When Gwen was 3 weeks old, we went to pick out the finishes for our new townhouse. Luckily, Gwen slept the entire time and didn’t make a peep. Charles and I had a very vague idea of what we wanted before we went to meet with the designer.
During the meeting we had to pick out everything: all the flooring, all of the tile, and all of the fixtures. We started with the kitchen and living room and ended with the bathrooms. By the time we got to the bathroom selections, Charles had to leave for an urgent work call. This meant that I was all on my own, and the topic of bathroom design wasn’t something that we had discussed at length. I went with my gut and picked a very neutral color scheme for our bathroom. Then I picked something more feminine for the guest bath and Gwen’s bath. Charles got to see photos of all the samples and give his stamp of approval before everything was ordered and installed.
If you saw the post sharing our primary bedroom design, this wall paper is familiar. It is the same Tempaper wallpaper that we used in our bedroom. Once the bedroom was wallpapered, the bathroom seemed a bit naked.
My heart became set on adding wallpaper to the bathroom on a small section of wall behind the bathtub. Charles wasn’t into the idea, but didn’t want to say no. So instead, he said that if I could hang the wallpaper behind the tub myself, then I add some wallpaper to the room. Charles was convinced that I would be able to do the project myself. He was wrong. And I LOVE how it turned out!
The dark grey countertops were a very last minute decision. I wanted to give the space some contrast and I quickly googled dark countertops while in the meeting with the designer and decided to go with it. People wanted me that the darker countertops might show watermarks, but we don’t really notice them. That might be because the countertops have a slight light marbling to them.
The one design element that Charles insisted on was a rain shower. I must confess that I have never used it, but he loves it!
The other thing that I love about the bathroom is the heated floors. It’s such a treat to step onto a warm floor on a cold winter night.
Modern Primary Bathroom Before and After Photos:
I think that these before and after photos show what an impact the wallpaper has on the space. It looks so different when we just added a rug, towels, a basket, a few accessories, and the wallpaper!
