Licensed contractor Matt Muenster sees every house project, whether he’s ripping apart dated bathrooms using the latest construction technology or completely gutting his own kitchen, as a chance to use his clever ideas to achieve great design while integrating earth-friendly elements.
This construction grade bathroom is in need of a spark. Bath Crashers throws out the old and brings back the new in a cool way. Carrera and bold mosaic patterns fill every corner of this room. The new soaker tub sits underneath a ceiling feature of flowers lit by LED's. The shower is made bigger and given a window looking into a modern candle-lit 'fireplace' while the perimeter of the bathroom glows with custom LED crown molding.
Matt Muenster and the Bath Crashers crew create an ecofriendly, sustainable and gorgeous bathroom. After removing the walls, this bathroom is now a nearly uninterrupted flow from the bedroom. A raised wood floor sets the stage for the glass box encloses the huge shower and etched glass panels provide privacy and move along a track the length of the shower. A memorable double sink vanity with paperstone countertop and petrified wood vessel sinks flanks the side wall. The long and deep soaker tub is framed with a sleek floating deck built from cedar planks and makes for the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine and a good book. The tub wall is clad with recycled panel doors that are cut in a unique grid and enameled. Outside the shower sits a small bench with a removable, gasless and ventless fireplace to add to the ambience. Topping things off is an open ceiling made from reclaimed timbers, forming a pergola overhead.
The rustic styling of Sedona, Arizona turns a small, dingy, outdated bath space into a cozy, Midwest spa. The space is expanded by stealing an empty bedroom to make room for a double-sink vanity that features a Spanish wrought iron skirt-surround. There's also space for a long, deep copper tub with floor-mounted tub filler. On the floor, cold-pressed recycled poplar is used to create a stunning, durable, waterproof surface that is accented with a 5' by 3' 'tile rug' from earth-tone colored slate. The same slate is used to tile the new, spacious shower. Sconce lighting fashioned after ranch-style gas lanterns flank the vanity sinks, and more warmth is provided by a gas fireplace wrapped in multi-hued river rock.
Target Field serves as the inspiration for the ultimate baseball lover's bathroom. A family of four is thrown a curveball when Matt Muenster shows up with MLB Network analyst and former pro player, Darryl Hamilton. Instead of getting a regular crash, they are treated to a behind the scenes tour of Target Field, where Matt gets design inspiration. The result is a fantasy bathroom and clubhouse for a family who can't get enough baseball. Matt's outfitted the space with lockers, a soaking therapy tub, a TV in the shower, a urinal and walls made from the same stone found in Target field. Outside the doors of the bathroom, Matt's creating the ultimate room to relax and watch the game, complete with popcorn machine, fridge, comfy beanbag chairs and a bar.
A dungeon-like basement bathroom needed to be transformed into a sophisticated and sparkly shrine for the homeowner. To make that happen, Bath Crashers took down the dark wood paneling, knocked down walls and added glitz and glamour. White marble lines the walls, glass, jewel cut sinks sit atop a white vanity with mirrored accents and a one of a kind etched, vintage door gives the space privacy. Warmth is provided by a new steam shower and a double-sided fireplace. An illuminated mirror wall with candles is the backdrop for a classic claw-foot soaking tub and a crystal chandelier adds the final touch of bling to this bathroom.
A small bathroom that is falling apart is turned into a beautiful, classic space with the help of the Bath Crashers crew. A large, carrera marble steam shower is added. Custom storage makes practical use of the space. Natural light fills the room and a built-in coffee bar make it easy to rise and shine in this bathroom remodel.
A small bathroom gets much bigger by taking closet and exterior space. On the new outside wall, windows now surround a massive soaking tub. A custom vanity is wrapped in a leather finished granite, which also covers the entire wall. In front of that wall hangs a backlit mirror that plays music and the ceiling gets an intricate trim detail to bring this transitional design together.
These non-boring homeowners had a bathroom that was beyond bland. Bath Crashers turned the style up to 11, designing a space that fit the energetic personality of the couple. The new plan is anchored by a showstopper of a shower in the center of the room. Brightly colored tiles on the back wall catch the eye and provide a jolt of energy to the space. On either side of the shower sits 'his' and 'hers' vanities with a bright veneer finish and waterfall countertops. A modern louvered screen serves as an art feature that provides privacy if needed. Behind the tub is a sliding wall that hides a laundry shoot, a feature that's artistic as well as functional. Tiles on the floor are laid in a chevron pattern, pointing the way to a memorable bathroom.
Bath Crashers doesn't do beige, so a construction grade space is the perfect project to tear down and start over. Goodbye golden oak and hello to new, modern materials and amenities. A sleek soaking tub replaces the ugly corner jetted one that never go used. A two-person shower with waterproof TV is added for extra entertainment. LED lit trim and solar tube mix modern and natural light and a cocktail bar with butcher-block countertop completes this once boring bathroom's new transformation.
This bathroom is too small to create the modern, industrial space these homeowners would love to have. Taking over an unused dining room next door gives Bath Crashers the space they need to create a sleek new layout that has dark concrete on the floors and is featured on a wall behind a bright white soaking tub. The shower is big, open and packed with nine different fixtures, which are all controlled digitally. Bath Crashers expanded the space even further, building an addition to house a custom sauna. Music will play through two waterproof speakers, one of which will go into the two-person sauna that's wrapped in cedar and special lighting.
This master bath is too small for this family of four. Taking the adjacent bedroom, which sits next to their outdoor pool area, allows the Bath Crashers crew to combine the two spaces and turn it into a dual-purpose modern spa and pool space. The master suite side is luxuriously spacious: the vanity is a centerpiece that glows from a backlit, Onyx counter-top. The two sinks share a space with an automatic ice machine for these active homeowners to use after their runs. The tub is tricked out with jets and speakers and the shower serves two purposes: one side for everyday use with a rain-shower head and body sprays while the other side is to rinse off after hanging by the pool.
A master bath in Nashville is transformed into a modern space with natural elements including Ipe hardwood floors and marble vanities with basalt sinks. A sleek stainless fireplace is installed between the vanities and custom wood shelving above holds power outlets hidden from view. A massive steam shower is the centerpiece with two shower stations and a pedicure footbath.
A boring bathroom gets high-tech upgrades. Host and licensed contractor Matt Muenster and the Bath Crashers crew expand a one person shower to fit two, add lighted chromatherapy rain shower heads and a digital control panel for individually heated water settings. A huge, circular, stainless steel tub sits on a raised, tiled platform and features a free-standing tub filler. Tubular skylights provide natural daylight and energy-saving LEDs light the space at night. Side-by-side curved vanities finished with glass counter tops and a metal-like laminate add a space-age look and feel, as do the stainless steel drop-in sinks and fixtures floating out from the wall. A conveyor system is added to the adjoining walk-in closet for automated storage.
