J & A Master Bathroom:: And Massive Mirrors No More!

Last Updated on March 2, 2013 by Kristi Linauer

Happy Monday to you!! Last Friday, I made some progress on the vanity area in J & A’s master bathroom. It’s amazing what removing those massive mirrors did for room! It’s like the room was able to breathe a little. Okay, that sounds funny. But seriously, just see for yourself.

Here’s the vanity area with the big, huge, massive mirrors (and the wallpaper)…

And now here’s what it looks like with two sections of the mirror removed, the old cultured marble backsplash removed, and part of the new glass tile/tumbled marble backsplash added…

Can you envision it?  It’s going to be beautiful, right? Of course, I will be adding back three mirrors.  They just won’t be so massive and overpowering.

I just have one more section of mirror to remove, but two more sections of cultured marble backsplash…which raises a question.

This little piece of backsplash is actually the side of the cabinet.  As you can see, there is currently a backsplash there, but I’m just not so sure about putting the tile right there.  What are your thoughts?  Do I replace it with tile?  Or do I must remove it, and leave the tile on the back wall only?  Hmmmm…let me know what you think.

Psstt…This bathroom is finished now!  Want to see the completed bathroom makeover?  Click here to see the whole before and after.

    Putting it on the back wall only does make sense but keep in mind it is a splash guard too and if J & A are anything like me, they will like that little extra protection and that tumbled marble and glass tile is sooooo pretty… Are you putting the tile up yourself too????

    If the cabinet is going to be the same color as the wall behind the sink then I would continue the tile around. Can't wait to see the results.

    funny, just had this last week. A client bought one of those furniture sink vanities and it didn't come with the side backsplash. The salesperson told us {could just be a sales pitch} that builders started putting that piece on the side to cover up any gaps or un-square walls.

    I think you should not replace backslash. It looks very nice. I look forward to see your new updates. Please share your latest decision about that.

    Love your blog Had to send this link for a sink that has panels like those from your bedside tables with the flat inset contrast banding.

    I would take it off. If there is serious gapping, I would tile it. Ither wise I would let it without.

    You have provided much clarity to my ideas of what I want on my new house. Thank you does not suffice!!!
