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 jungle-themed bathroom is big, but very badly put together. The rainforest inspired wallpaper and swan fixtures made of brass have got to go. Gutting everything and starting with a clean slate allows the crew to make this space stand out. Beautiful marble tiles line the floor, which is heated. A new steam shower with body sprays and plenty of room, is a centerpiece. Classic touches are brought in with a claw-foot soaking tub and reclaimed armoire with matching vanities. To top it off, the ceiling becomes a showstopper with a new dome and crystal chandelier.
This super blue, mid-century modern bathroom needs an update, and fast! To bring this space back to life, Bath Crashers installs large format tiles to create a mid-century minimalist look. A sleek soaking tub replaces the old blue one, which adds beauty and function to the room. Antique brass pendants add a touch of old while a wall feature of large panels with the original blue prints of the home are lit with fiber optics to highlight the new in this space.
An old, tiny bathroom expands to become two unique spaces accessed by a walk-though cabinet with privacy glass. The dry space features a huge vanity with a large and low-profile sink, teak shelving, teak flooring, and a reverse-coffered ceiling dotted with pin lights. Pass through the cabinet, which features plenty of linen storage, into a large wet room, highlighted by a huge soaker tub, two rainshower heads and body wands, and large slabs of tile on walls. A slate tile floor adds a nice accent to the warmth and of the teak, including a teak bench for relaxing in the new spa.
When you already have a big bathroom like these homeowners do, the possibilities are endless. Bath Crashers takes this big and boring space to the next level by completely blowing up the room and starting over. A massive storefront window expands the view overlooking a golf course while a sleek soaking infinity tub sits in front of it. The shower that sits in the center of the room is completely enclosed in glass. Waterproof speaker tiles are installed for a touch of tech and custom closets fill the perimeter of this modern remodel.
A tiny pink master bath expands into another extra pink bathroom to create a large, functional master suite with plenty of natural accents. All that pink is replaced with sleek, clean, white finishes. Giant format stone tiles with the look of marble encase a huge new shower outfitted with body sprays, a large rainshower head, hand wand, and teak bench. A large, new vanity is flanked by a storage tower and topped with a cast cement counter. Ipe covers the floor and is used for the facing of the deck of the new, deep soaker tub. The entire space is capped off with a bluetooth music speaker system and a luxurious bidet toilet.
This traditional, shotgun style New Orleans home has a bathroom that is old, small and not working for these homeowners. Taking over the bedroom next door allows for a classic, southern-style remodel complete with carerra marble tile covering the floor, walls and shower which is complete with body sprays, a rain showerhead and Bluetooth speakers. A claw-foot tub acts as an art piece in the center of the room, which sits underneath a massive crystal chandelier and a custom vanity that accommodates 'his' and 'hers' sides with a make-up station and flat-screen TV.
An ultra small arts and crafts home bathroom is turned into a massive wet room that features vintage luxury. A large claw foot tub sits next to an ethanol-burning fireplace wrapped in overlapping sheets of silver-enameled metal. Across the way is the walk-up, glass-less shower area with two massive rain heads to soak under. The walls are 4x18 white subway tiles, while the floor is black-and-white hexagon tiles to add to the vintage feel. The shower and sink fixtures are period pieces and enhance the turn-of-the-century ambience, while the vanity frame is formed with chrome pipe fittings, a black counter top, and two milk-glass sinks with exposed plumbing. Around the corner in the dry space is storage created from threaded steel rods and wood shelving, and an out-of-sight area for the toilet to complete the space.
A tiny master bath with one sink and no character is expanded and enlarged into the master bedroom to create an elegant east coast cottage space. The features include walls with reclaimed barnwood wainscoting, exposed rafters wrapped in more barnwood, and the carpeting gives way to Ipe flooring. The shower is decked out in tile mats that are sprinkled randomly throughout with 1 inch seaglass accents. Attic space along on the wall opposite the shower area is converted to fit a large vanity with drop in sinks and a storage tower. A large skylight brightens the space and brings in a bit of the outdoors. Ocean not included.
A bathroom with an awkward layout gets a complete overhaul. The new bathroom is warm, rustic and romantic. Reclaimed barn wood and corbels frame the new tub space, in the middle of which sits a deep soaking slipper tub with brass claw feet. On the tub wall sits an electric fireplace, which is wrapped in reclaimed tin panels. The middle of the room is divided by a huge, framed, 2-sided mirror, with a large vanity and acrylic sink on one side, and a makeup area on the other. Wood grain vinyl planks cover the main floor, and a crystal chandelier bathes the entire space in warm, reflective light.
Before, this bathroom was stuck in the 80s, featuring giant globe lights, puffy silver wallpaper and cheesy fixtures. A leaking skylight only added to the misery. Bath Crashers transformed the space into a dream escape for a single mom. A clawfoot tub, gorgeous built-ins painted the color of a Tiffany box, a sexy stand-alone shower and an elegant ceiling medallion complete the look. And if the homeowner wants to close out the rest of the world, all she has to do is shut the double-tufted, leather-encased doors.
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.
Tiny, awkward bathroom is made bigger by removing two closets that eat space and adding functional amenities and design elements. A deep, free standing soaker tub is added against a wall fashioned from corten steel with a rusted patina. Teakwood storage shelves between the vanities make for more storage and organization. The shower nearly doubles in size and incorporates hexagon tiles on the wall, accented by a racing stripe of vertical linear copper glass surrounding the top of the walls. Floating shelves descend from the ceiling, and the entire floor is decked out in 16x24 slabs of black slate tile. A one of a kind, artist-designed, floor to ceiling etched glass panel, lights up and gives the toilet area some privacy.
