Coastal Master Bathroom Makeover

I’ve got another fun makeover for you all today from my parent’s Florida home. Besides the kitchen, this coastal master bathroom makeover has the best before and after photos, which are just my favorite thing. Let’s jump right in and take a look at the before again (although let me remind you this was when my tripod broke, so don’t judge my less than sharp after photos):

A room with a sink and a mirror

and after!

A bathroom with wooden cabinets

When I talked about this bathroom last fall, our plan was a bit different than we ended up with. The first thing they did was rip out this old shower, it was just an awkward shape and my mom really wanted a tub up here. They ended up reconfiguring the whole floor plan in here. They put a beautiful free standing tub (the same one I have actually) where the shower used to be.

A freestanding bathtub

The walls were so destroyed after pulling off the tile, we decided to do a vertical planking up the wall rather than re-drywall it all. This also solved the problem of fixing the hole the old builtin mirror/medicine cabinet situation left in the wall. The ceilings are vaulted in here, so they just took the planks up 8 ft (which is how long the boards are) and painted it TopSail above the wall treatment. It’s crazy how much bigger it makes this bathroom feel. They had to keep that little half wall on the right side of the tub, because their central vac system was in there and it would have been super expensive to try to move. It actually creates a nice little nook for the tub.

That hall leads down to my parents bedroom and closet. This house had 2 master closets which my parent’s didn’t really need because they don’t live here year round, so they decided to turn the 2nd master closet into the shower.

A bathroom shower and powder room

I didn’t get a before photo of the closet before demo, but on the left side where the shelves and shower are was a closet. There was a door that basically mirrored the door to the powder room with a sink in between. They removed the sink on this side of the room and added this cabinet that my mom had at their old home and turned it into a little makeup vanity area for my mom. You may notice the mirror is hung a little high and we ran into this a ton in this house, all of the outlets are at super weird spots and heights. Thankfully my mom is tall and the mirror still works for her.

They used a pretty grey subway tile in this shower and I love the wood on the ceiling. This shower photographs kind of small, but my 6’3″ dad has plenty of room in here.

We ordered this vanity from Home Decorators and it has a pretty greyish driftwood wash on it. We did swap out the hardware which was black, for this polished nickel for a more beachy vibe. The rope mirrors were a fun find too.

They went with a white washed wood looking tile just like we used in our master bathroom and it turned out so pretty.

Can you believe the difference? It was so great to banish the pinkish/beige 90’s tile and bring in a fresh and beachy look. If you want a better tour of this space (since my slightly blurry photos don’t do it justice) you can visit my instagram profile and click on my highlights. There is one for my parent’s Florida home where I give you a little tour of this bathroom and kitchen, and a tour of the entire main floor of our house too!

  1. Love love love this! What kind of planking did you use? Is it tongue and grove or just side by side? How wide is each plank?
    Thank you so much for sharing!

    1. This is a product they bought at Lowes they sell it by the shiplap and stuff. I’m sure you can find it at your local store!

  2. What a spectacular transformation! Your parents must be so pleased. I love planked walls, regardless of the direction of the planks and the pony wall sort of frames that lovely tub. (Serendipity at it’s finest!) Kelly, you really are a pro at adding visual texture. Thanks for another wonderful post. :-)

  3. I love the vertical planking. Any chance of a tutorial on what kind of planking they used and how they installed it?

  4. Wow Kelly, your parents’ bathroom is swoon worthy. Your doing an amazing transformation in your parents house.

  5. Another stunning renovation! I absolutely love the vertical planking vs drywall option ????

  6. I have been so inspired by this renovation. We are preparing to move to Texas and so many houses in our price range there are that dark “Tuscan” look. We just finished renovating our home in MO when we found out we would be moving. We’d done a light and bright interior but it was a bright house to begin with. I was really having trouble visualizing how to make these dark houses fit what we wanted. You guys have done a great job in Florida! Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. Thanks for the prompt reply. You are right all you do is press your finger to the product line and it takes you right to the web site. You can teach an old dog new tricks!

  8. The master bathroom turned out beautiful. You did a great job. I am curious about the wood ceiling in the shower. Wouldn’t it warp over time?

  9. Absolutely beautiful! And I love the rug– it’s perfect for that space.
    Did it also come from Wayfair?

  10. Love this area so much. The white and the gray combination is so peaceful and calming. It turns out amazing!! ❤️

  11. Hi Kelly, wonderful coincidence for me that you are redoing your parents master bathroom in Florida, because I am too! Im a snow bird and I’m going to be redoing my bathroom. Can you please tell me the name of the vanity from Home Decorators? My bathroom is small so I am hoping that the vanity is made with a single sink. I have looked on line at dozens of sites for a beach looking distressed vanity that is reasonable and a very limited choice is available, so I’m thrilled to see one from Home Decorators.
    Love the picture over the tub, can you tell me where you purchased it? Thanks for sharing all your lovely work.

    1. HI Eavan, If you keep scrolling to the bottom of the post I link the exact vanity from Home Decorators that’s probably the easiest way to find it. The art over the tub my mom found at a local store in FL thanks!

  12. A beautiful coastal Home! I love all the decor and “special touches” that your Mom adds to each room. Absolutely breathtaking!

  13. Once again, a stunning remodel. What a beautiful window, especially in a bathroom. Where did you find the cute little stool? I will need to incorporate some of these ideas when we redo our bath also. Thanks for the inspiration!
