A Master Bathroom Renovation

June 9, 2017

We’ve been doing construction for upwards of 15 years, and before the show started, taking on projects like this one used to be the bread and butter of our construction business. We’re going to start featuring more small projects like this one on the blog, and thought this was the perfect reno to kick it off with.

This bathroom was outdated and no longer functional for the family. The budget for the project was between $15,000-$20,000, and the key to staying within this budget was keeping the space’s original layout and making cosmetic updates. Keeping the plumbing where it was originally saved us thousands of dollars, and cut the timeline for the project in half.

To customize the space, we added layers—like custom shelving and chair railing to really create a comfortable, cohesive bathroom where our clients could relax and unwind.



If you’re like me and anxiously waiting for season 5 to air, keep checking the blog and our social media accounts @magnolia and @joannagaines for sneak peeks and also an inside look into other projects we have going on. What are you most excited about seeing next season? Let me know in the comments below!

    Love your show and love your new venture. Any chance you would give people suggestions on space that we want remodeled? Our master bath is in need of a major facelift and have loved how the two of you work your magic on remodels.

    Is there a way to get a bathroom layout advice? I'm having challenges with this issue.

    The new tub has a lovely design and it does make the space look bigger. In my opinion, this is an example of "design" running contrary to reality and functionally. These tubs are hard to get into and out of due to their high sides and are more dangerous because of this. They waste water because it takes an enormous amount of water to fill them to a usable level. They are difficult to clean. I continue to be amazed that designers use and promote these kind of very impractical choices in the name of good "design." Other common examples are white/off-white couches in a family room and don't get me started on the sisal rug trend of a few years ago (fragile, uncomfortable under foot and creates dust.)
    Why do designers do this?
