Just like the kitchen, I enjoyed making this space our own with a few custom features.

Master Bathroom: January 2013

Master Bathroom: January 2013

This project wasn’t planned until the end of 2013, but getting pregnant sped up the timing.  Before the baby came, we needed to add a tub back into the house; not that we couldn’t have washed her in the sink, but that is only a short term solution.

We took a bit of a gamble on this one because we took out the closet in the Master Bedroom to expand the Master Bath.  Since I had already created the closet of my dreams, which is attached to the Master Bedroom, to me it made perfect sense to do this.  We have not permanently  closed off the closet to the hallway, but we have currently closed it off in a way that you can’t access it from the hallway.

Entrance: April 2012

Our home is a split-level, with the front entry actually between two floors.  The entryway opens to a living room on the upper right, the kitchen straight ahead and up, and the basement below.  Since the kitchen is the first room visible when entering the house, I wanted to find a way to tie together the look of the entrance and the kitchen.  I did this by re-using tile that was used in the kitchen, and by using the same transitional flooring  pattern that I had used in the rooms bordering the kitchen for the entrance.

Kitchen Details: April 2012

I know there are a lot of posts about our kitchen, but this was one of my favorite emodels and I put a lot of effort into the details.  The items in this post are some of my favorite features of the kitchen.  Not everyone would put details like this in their kitchen, but it’s about what makes you happy in your home.  You can’t always do things just because they will have good resale or because you know someone else would like it.  If we weren’t going to stay here for a number of years, I maybe could’ve eliminated a few of these to save a few extra dollars, but I’m happy with the upgrades and details that we did opt for.

There is only ONE thing I wish I could added looking back and will add in my future kitchen, a small vegetable washing sink right next to the stove.  I would’ve needed more counter room for this, but the Hub-E drips water all over the floor when carrying the washed items to the stove to be cut or cooked.  Just a fancy convenience upgrade that I wish I would’ve thought of since we had already run the cold water line to the pot filler.
