Farmhouse Master Bathroom Remodel & Reveal
*this post contains affiliate links for more information check out our disclosure page here*
The time had FINALLY come for us to start our HUGE master bathroom remodel.
Farmhouse Master Bathroom Remodel Plan
There was nothing in our former bathroom we are going to save & in the end we will completely gutted this bathroom & started all over with new ceilings, walls, tile, soaking tub, shower, double vanity sink, faucets & paint!
It was completely outdated, not very functional & just plain ugly.
If you remember the boys bathroom remodel we did a few years ago, you will see that we had similar ideas for this master bathroom remodel.
So many of the DIY projects we did in there have held up & the boys bathroom still looks fabulous despite 3 very messy & growing boys using it!
The idea of completely gutting & starting over for this master bathroom remodel has seemed entirely OVERWHELMING to Jason & I.
But…. it needed to be done years ago & has quickly become the eyesore room in our farmhouse.
Now, that we have a plan for this master bathroom remodel, we have been busy gutting & making a making a mess in this bathroom.
Jason recently added a bathroom fan to the ceiling. Why there was no bathroom fan to begin with, I will never know.
Taking out our ugly red tile, brown cast iron tub & red laminate sink is going to be a BIG JOB!
Get ready for the UGLIEST master bathroom you have ever seen!
Master Bathroom Remodel Before
Master Bathroom Remodel Budget
To save money, we planned on doing this master bathroom remodel entirely on our own.
Our hope was to do it as inexpensively as possible without compromising on quality of materials.
In the end, we kept the master bathroom remodel budget to roughly between $6,000- $7,000.
The big budget items for our master bathroom remodel were our soaking tub (see it HERE), master bathroom tile (see it HERE), our double vanity from the restoration hardware outlet & the bead board ceiling & shiplap (read that HERE).
Master Bathroom Remodel Ceiling & New Lighting
Our master bathroom has beautiful vaulted & sloped angled ceiling.
Our plan was to add the same vinyl bead board ceiling we added to the boys bathroom.
It has held up to all the steamy showers they have taken since we finished their bathroom & I knew it would look beautiful in our master bathroom remodel.
We added small recessed lights & a bathroom fan to the ceiling to help brighten up & air out the our new master bathroom remodel.
We also added schoolhouse lights above the bathroom mirrors for more light as well.
Master Bathroom Remodel – Adding Shiplap to the Walls
Since there was never a bathroom fan over time the yellow gloss paint on the walls has started to peel. Rather than the messy job of re-dry-walling we will add shiplap to the walls instead.
Read more about how we added the master bathroom shiplap walls HERE.
Shiplap adds an extra layer of insulation to our walls which is always needed in a century old farmhouse like ours.
We love the character it adds to our farmhouse bathroom walls.
Adding a Double Vanity Sink
in our master bathroom before, despite having plenty of room for a double sink, the previous owners opted for 1 sink & a very long counter.
Jason & I definitely wanted our own sinks.
We found this gorgeous double oak vanity sink on sale at the restoration hardware outlet for a fraction of the cost & brought it home.
This vanity sink is solid & we love the contrast of the wood topped with marble.
It is a similar look to our farmhouse kitchen cabinets with a marble counter top.
It was missing it’s Carrara sink top but we found one that is a perfect match at Signature Hardware.
Soaking Tub & Walk In Shower
I loved the size of our previous brown cast iron soaking tub.
However, it is extremely awkward to get in & out of. The red tile stairs are SO very slippery & I have fallen more than once getting out.
I was definitely ready for a shower I can just walk into!
So much space was taken up by the stairs for our previous tub, that we were able to add a double walk in shower with a bench as well as a long soaking tub.
We moved the bathtub longways against the wall with the window.

Tile in the Master Bathroom Remodel
We added white subway tile & Carrara marble tile to the walk in shower walls & floor & a glass shower door to finish off our walk in shower.
For the master bathroom floor we chose large rectangular black porcelain tile with a grey grout.

Master Bathroom Remodel Reveal After
After more than a year of DIY projects this master bathroom remodel is just about done! I am still on the hunt for a small vintage bathroom cabinet to hold extra bathroom towels & bathroom supplies.
I hope our master bathroom remodel gives you some ideas & inspiration for whatever master bathroom project you have planned!
