Master Bath Redesign...Lighting

Beautiful lighting can transform a room. In this bath the main source of light were two recessed ceiling fixtures, and in my opinion, that is a lost decorating opportunity!

Luckily, this problem is easily solved with a fabulous product I recently discovered. The "Recessed Fixture Converter" kit, which can be found at Home Depot for under $10, converts a recessed housing unit to a junction box. After this quick task that just about anyone can do, a light fixture up to 25 lbs. can be hung where the recessed light was previously. (I LOVE this product!!!)

In this bath both recessed lights where converted and replaced with two identical leaf motif chandeliers in an antiqued gold finish. Each were hung below ceiling medallions painted a similar shade as the room's mill work. These chandeliers bring in a delightfully sophisticated element to the room, helping nudge this master bath towards my designs goals for the space.

Next...vanity lighting. I'll exchange the existing craftsman style lighting with fixtures that are in keeping with the overall design plan for the room.


  1. I found your blog via Rate my Space and have throughly enjoyed reading your bathroom update posts.

    My husband and I are in the middle of trying to remodel our master bedroom at the moment and plan on moving into the master bath afterward! Can I just say that, your work is so inspiring :) I wish you lived in my area!!!

    You give so much helpful information in your posts too. May I ask where you purchased your chandelier lighting? They are perfectly sized and quite beautiful. Thanks in advance!
