garage remodel // inspiration

January 29, 2014

so the garage portion of our remodel is officially underway and for the last week our plumber has been trenching through the front yard and chipping concrete to make way for our new sewer line. not exactly the most glamorous part of the remodel, so i’ll share with you our inspiration for the new space which will consist of an entry way, laundry room, and master suite with walk-in closet.

bedroom inspiration

we want to continue the rustic appeal we currently have in our living room into the new bedroom, so i’ve been dreaming of warm textures and clean lines. our current bedroom feels a bit cluttered at times, so we’re hoping to move away from that in this new space. we’ve also incorporated tons of natural light into the plans for this room with two floor to ceiling windows and a four panel glass door that opens to the backyard.

bathroom inspiration

there are still several bathroom details that we need to work out, but what i’m most excited about is finally having the clawfoot tub i’ve been dreaming of for years now. our rainwater shower and free standing tub will essentially be open air behind a fixed glass partial wall enclosure (similar to the bottom left photo). i’m pretty thrilled about this layout and the simple details that will pull it all together – white subway tile, dark floors, and oil rubbed bronze fixtures.

entry inspiration

did i mention we’re also moving our front door? yep, things are about to get wild. with our current layout, you walk into the house and are immediately in the middle of the kitchen, so i’m extremely pleased that we’ll now have a proper entry for guests to hang their hats and stay awhile.

stay tuned for updates as we transform the above inspiration into our real life space. it won’t all be smooth sailing, and i’ll be sharing the horror stories and annoyances as well as the triumphs with y’all. we’ll be living in our home during the entire remodel (crazy but true), so any tips from those who’ve been in our shoes before are welcomed.
