Clawfoot Tub & Vanity - Part 5

Today I am sharing our installation of the bath vanity, countertop, and freestanding clawfoot tub. Be sure to stop by tomorrow to see the final reveal of our new master bathroom!

I planned and purchased our vanity cabinets through Home Depot. We chose the Martha Stewart line, cabinet and drawer style is Dunemere, and in Picket Fence white color. The vanity is a laminate wrapped finish so it will hold up well to moisture in the space. The vanity includes two 24 inch sink base cabinets, two pull-out spice racks {used for hair product, lotion, etc}, and a center 18 inch, 3-drawer base. I love the pull-out racks! It's a fun and different solution for storage after losing the counter tower storage from the previous vanity

We also have a small 'niche' like space tucked away. Before there were open shelves that were extremely cluttered looking. We store first aid, meds, toilet paper, and towels in this area. I chose to replace with closed cabinet storage and open shelving below for neatly folded towels and linens. This is again the Dunemere line, but labeled a 'Utility Cabinet' in their catalog. This is three separate units stacked and installed. My Mom and I then added some trim at the top from scrap to make it look a bit more finished. 


The adjoining bedroom was a crazy mess during the reno! Pay no attention {ha}!

LOVE how everything is coming together here!

We then chose vanity lights and mirrors from Restoration Hardware. Tomorrow's post will have the whole look shown. Here is a progress pic after lighting installed by ME!

For the countertop, we landed on Corian solid surface material in 'Witch Hazel.' I wanted to mimic the travertine look of the shower without using actual travertine stone, which is porous and fragile. We paired the counter with rectangular Kohler 'Ladena' sinks and Kohler 'Margaux' faucets in chrome. While the counter was being installed, I snuck in to take a peek at the progress. It took my breath away! I was so giddy that it absolutely completed the vanity area into a clean and gorgeous space!

Now onto the tub details! My husband has always wanted a freestanding tub...he actually enjoys taking more baths than I do. In this home, we finally had the freedom to add it to the room. We chose a Victoria + Albert 'Roxburgh' tub with lion cast feet. It is made of 'Englishcast stone resin and gives a lovely look of porcelain, but lightweight. You can read more about the advantages of Englishcast materials here. The tub filler {faucet} is California Faucet 'Balboa' in chrome. 

It fits the space perfectly...especially after excavating the green acrylic surround and ledge area that was dead space. The area is now open, airy, and perfect for soaking!

Tomorrow is the FINAL installment of the master bath renovation series. Get ready for some lovely photos!
