What do you look for when designing an ensuite? What feeling does it evoke when you step into that space? For us, we wanted to feel relaxed and comfort and this space makes me feel exactly that. As we walk beyond the his and hers closets we enter the master ensuite through a Metrie Livingston pocket door into our ensuite. I feel instantly relaxed! With the massive bathtub and all of the design elements we hand selected, your troubles melt like lemon drops in here.
When picking the finishings for this bathroom, I wanted to again – keep it classic. I prefer to keep our colours minimalist and “clean”, so that colours can be added in with florals, greenery or linens. White, wood tones and brass melange so well together in my opinion and I will always go for brass when it comes to faucets, I truly do not believe that it will go out of style, ever.
I’m truly in love with how Latitude countertops fabricated our master ensuite shower using the Calacatta Gold by Hanstone Canada, Craig had these fun ideas to have the larger pieces on the surround for the ceiling and floor and they made it happen. It makes a beautiful statement in the space and the shower will be so easy to upkeep as Hanstone quartz is stain resistant and so durable.
Using our Pravada Van Gogh flooring for our ensuite was a near last minute choice when finishing our plans but we loved the flooring so much and I’ve always wanted to use hardwood in a bathroom. We made sure that we could heat it which was confirmed by Pravada (and an excellent feature about this flooring) and we are pretty diligent about not leaving any water anywhere after showers and baths so we were confident this would be the best choice for this space.
How great does this shiplap look? I love how it turned out! One day I want to do the entire interior of a house in Metrie shiplap. The contrast from the vanities against the white shiplap and the arched backsplash really bring this space together. We’ve used Metrie products for YEARS, in all of our homes and we source their products locally from Barrie Trim.
We chose to go with Riobel faucets for this bathroom, it is our first time using their faucets and we are really happy with the quality. For the hardware we continued with the polished brass egg knobs from Emtek that we used in other areas of the home, another product we’ve been super happy with. If you are local to the Barrie area, you can source our Emtek product choices from Barrie Trim as well and linked the hardware at the end of this blog post.
