For the last installment of the Mommy Fleur Renovations Before and After Photos, I will show you our Master’s Bedroom.
This is the before photo one wall. As soon as I first saw this bedroom, I knew that this wall right here will be the accent wall.
I wanted a grayish blue color for the accent wall kasi it’s very relaxing. The color of the Master’s Bedroom accent wall is also pa-timpla from Nippon. The shade is Lake Stone. Again, I am very happy because I got the shade that I wanted. If you can see all kinds of shades of gray in the selection of Nippon (check it out here), super dami nila. To pick and single out the color that you actually want is actually difficult. Kakabahan ka pa niyan ng slight kasi the shade that you have chosen in the swatch might not look nice in actual.
Ako, swak na swak talaga. Here’s what my master’s bedroom accent wall look like:
Ang presko ng arrive, promise.
When we bought the house, the Master’s Bedroom was super small lang. There was a partition for a smaller adjoining bedroom.
Alvin and I decided to knock it down to give way to a walk in closet area and to have a bigger space for the Master’s Bedroom. We also removed the floor tiles and replaced them with vinyl floor planks. They’re the same as the ones we put in Anika’s room.
This is how it looks like now:
Ganda our flooring din ano? It looks so nice in photos too!
Please don’t mind my feet. Pang Tom’s #WithoutShoes ko na post yan. Speaking of which, tara, please join Toms as they celebrate “ONE DAY WITHOUT SHOES”. They will be giving out a pair of shoes to a child in need for every bare feet tagged #WithoutShoes until May 31. They are prepared to give out daw 1 Million shoes! =) Sige na ha?
Moving on, the closets were painted pink before. I had it painted all white. I was the one who designed the closet. I gave my design to the carpenter and he implemented it. Sa taas, that’s where all the shirt and polos will be hung. At the bottom, that is the space for the pants. The drawers are for the pambahay and underwear. Kamote lang ng slight because the last three drawers there should have been shelves. Mukha daw drawers sa drawing ko sabi ng carpenter.
This is how it looks like now.
Next time ko na i-blog pero I had sliding mirrors installed as doors diyan sa closet na yan. It looks so nice!!!
For the bathroom, horror how it looked like before.
My peg for the Master’s Bedroom Toilet and Bath was gray and white. I never knew choosing tiles could be so time consuming. I looked at hundreds of different tiles at different stores before Alvin and I were able to find the right combination. I also want to thank Architect Bevs who I bothered all the way from Singapore. Lol. She really helped in giving me directions on the color combinations.
I wanted to get Homogeneous floor and wall tiles. May nagustuhan na ako. Gray then off-white na homogeneos tiles. Ang balak ko was gray yung flooring then white na lahat ng walls. Simple lang. The total cost of everything was Php 17k. The gray Homogeneous tiles cost Php 52 each while the white Homogeneous tiles cost around Php 130 per piece.
ME: Babe, eto na talaga ang combination that I like.
ALVIN: Sige. Magkano?
ME: Seventeen thousand.
ALVIN: Woah. Woah. Ano bang tiles yan?
I was talking with the salesman that time. When I turned around, nawala ang asawa ko.
When he went back, may dalang white tiles pero ceramic.
ALVIN: Eto Babe. Okay din ba ito?
We laid it out to see how the white ceramic tiles would look like. Maganda. Alvin said to put gray Homogeneous tiles as accent at one part of the wall. It looked more maaliwalas than the off-white and gray combination. The best part there was the white ceramic tiles cost us around Php 25 per piece only! All in all, the T&B tiles cost around Php 7k lang!
Winner. Alvin was so happy!
If I were to change one thing lang in the bathroom, I would have made the accent gray Homogenous tiles two columns instead of just one. Tinamad lang kasi ako bumili ng additional tiles pa kaya keribelles na yan =)
This was how the watercloset and sink looked like before:
For obvious reasons, we had to change the watercloset and the sink and the cabinet.
I picked a not so expensive water closet pero hindi naman yung cheapipay. The water closet cost us Php 18k. It came na with the bidet. For the sink, I wanted something unique hence the different design. The sink cost us around Php 5k, I think. It sits on a Granite countertop on a cabinet that I had the carpenter made. The cabinet should have been hanging so that hindi mabulok ang wood at the bottom kasi nabababad sa water pagnaglinis ng bathroom. However, I gave the carpenter a wrong measurements again.
I told Alvin okay na yan for a temporary sink. I’ll have a laminated hanging cabinet made na lang someday.
Here’s how it looks like now:
For the multi-point water heater, we got it for Php 9k. Actually, okay na sana ang single point water heater. However, wish ko talaga to have a rain shower like those in the hotels. If I get a single point water heater, I need to use the telephone shower that goes with it.
So we bought a multi-point water heater. A multi-point water heater should be placed somewhere na hindi kita. It can put hot water also in the lavatory faucets if you like. So dapat under the sink siya nilagay. However, water in Paranaque is not that malakas. The plumber said that masyadong mahaba ang pipes na kailangan so the water might not get hot because of the low water pressue. Kailangan pa ng pressure tank.
So we had na lang the multi-point water heater placed near the shower head. Keribelles na naman. I love taking showers talaga now in our new bathroom! =)
Wait. I have other things pa pala that I would change if I were to redo everything.
One, I would have put a hollow thingy on the wall of the shower area. It’s a place where I can put all the shampoos, conditioners and body washes that I have. Sayang. I see that always in hotels.
Two, I would have placed a low bench at the other end of the shower area. Our shower area measure 1.8 meters. Ang haba di ba? Sayang the space. If you are asking what the bench is for, use your imagination, mga ateng. Lol.
Three, I should have had Alvin install an electrical socket near the sink and the provision for the mirror. Wala akong place where to blowdry my hair. Hmmm.. Malaman.
So there you go guys! This is the final installment of the Mommy Fleur House Renovations Before and After Photos! Ang next naman natin is the finished product na per space with all the furniture. Madami daming racket ito! Hahaha!
