Off the shelf- DIY designer bathroom

Joe and I really wanted a master bathroom retreat, somewhere where we could really relax, that was comfortable AND stylish. I really LOVE the grey and natural tones and wanted to incorporate them into this space. I wanted the space to feel fresh, clean and modern while also being comfortable. AND I didn’t want to spend a lot. I really wanted to achieve a designer look on a budget. We were able to get the look we wanted on our budget this in several different ways.  First, I went with RTA cabinets (ready to assemble) this saved us  A LOT of money.  RTA cabinets are usually about half the cost of custom cabinets and you can get several different finishes, styles and options to go with your design and budget. In our master I knew I wanted grey shaker and I was only able to find them (here). I worked with Vic who helped me design them and sent me 3D images of all my spaces… SUPER awesome!! I am really happy with the color and quality of these cabinets. They have soft close drawers, high quality material and lots of customizable options! We chose to add towers to our vanity tops for more storage and opted for the frosted glass for a more luxurious look. We were also able to save on our counter tops by going to a granite yard and choosing from remnants. We went to a local place here in Denver called Front range stone and the selection of remnants was out of this world!! They have literally 100’s of different types of granite, soapstone, Silestone and quarts. This company happens to work with all the Lowes and Home Depots in Colorado so if we wanted to see something more closely… we just went into our local Lowes or Home depot! The sinks were purchased off the shelf from Lowes and can be found (here). I’m really loving gold fixtures right now so I found a gorgeous clean and modern set from build.com (here) that I thought fit the look of my bathroom perfectly. The round mirrors were purchased off the shelf from World Market. The round light fixtures found (here) were the only round fixtures I could find and they were in chrome. So I just found a gold spray paint that matches my other finishes and closely as possible and spray painted them! The gold pulls were also purchased right off the shelf at Lowes! I knew I wanted to splurge a little on the back splash and take it all the way up the wall for a more dramatic look. The herringbone back splash you can find (here). Lowes also carries a VERY similar style found (here) but the tiles are a little larger. In our shower we really loved the idea of pebble flooring for a spa feel that I found (here). I wanted to keep the shower really simple so we decided to go with a large grey matte tile found (here) and the pebbles  we took all the way up the sides for a more modern look. We used a cohesive snow white grout color throughout the entire space to tie everything together. I added white board and batten to the front of my bathtub to add some character and texture.  My flooring is off the shelf from Lowes. It is a marble look a like found (here). To save even more money we worked with our tile guy to get the project supply list and went and picked EVERYTHING up ourselves. I did not want to pay my tile guy to go back and forth to the store so he had my number on speed dial and I was his runner. (This was a pain in the butt… not going to lie) BUT we paid ONLY for production labor that was all done at my house and there were no hidden fees or extra costs.  All in all we were able to achieve a gorgeous modern spa like feel in our master bathroom on a budget. We are so happy with it and I hope this is a helpful tutorial!
