Finished Classic Cottagey Bathroom

Cottage Classic Bathroom

 Hi there! After working on the upstairs master bathroom in our bungalow for many months, we are finally finished! The slanted ceiling was a pretty big obstacle to work around but with the layout changes and extra shower space, it is are hardly noticeable. And no one will be hitting their head on it anymore- huge plus!

Below are the pictures of the space we started with.. these are the listing photos:

We kept pretty much in line with the design board with a few last minute swap outs like the oval mirror which fit better in the space with the slanted ceiling, finalized paint color, and a little bit larger cabinet.

This is the finished space- we are so happy with the results! All the sources are at the bottom of the post.

I think the wall planks adds some much needed character to this space and help to warm it up against all the tile.

We splurged on a custom glass shower door and couldn't be more pleased!

This is a truer representation of the subway tile color without the glass glare/tint.

  1. What type of lumber/planks did you use for the wall?. Stock or cut to finish?

  2. Hi! We used the individual tongue and groove breadboard pieces and just cut to the length (height) we needed. I think the front has the breadboard and the back is smooth so we used the back side. We bought them pre primed at Menards if you have a location by you. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Do you have any photos of the interior of the shower, behind the wall? We're working through a similar project and are curious to know if you took the shower's slanted wall, all the way down to the floor? Also, was the basin of your shower existing or did it need to be replaced as well? Do you have any lessons learned or recommendations for spaces like this, now that it's complete?

    1. Hi Brenda! I’m sorry, I don’t have any photos and we don’t live there anymore. Our wall was slanted til about 48” high. We built in a bench on that wall and a built in shampoo holder into the half wall. We had a fun time with the basin as we had to custom make it and ensure proper slope. It’s made of concrete. I think it was the best option for this layout/type of space and we wouldn’t have changed a thing! The custom glass half wall and door definitely took it up a notch. Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks for stopping by!
