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.
These two bathrooms are separate yet open to each other at the ceiling and they need to be torn down and made into one killer space that fits with the style of this midcentury modern home. The new design features a jetted tub with a concrete deck, copper front and a perfect view of a wall mounted TV. The shower is separate, bigger and surrounded in sleek modern tile and glass. The walls are covered in birch while the floor gets a stained concrete finish. The vanity is a double concrete trough sink, which sits next to an LED lit piece of art glass etched with a fun surprise for the homeowners.
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.
These two, small and ugly spaces aren't giving the homeowners the proper bathroom set-up they need. To fix this problem, Bath Crashers is joining the spaces to make one, large master suite, with plenty of room for guests. A giant tub with jets gets wrapped with a recycled granite stone. The walk-in shower with body sprays is big enough for two, complete with a de-fogging mirror. The stone floors are heated for warmth, a new window is added for natural light and double vanity sits next to a new flat-screen TV.
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 basement bath takes on a pleasing decadence by first expanding into the laundry-utility room. That makes the space big enough to handle a deep, jetted, soaker tub right next to a huge walk in shower with a simulated wood wall and big shower bench. A unique shelf system made with belts provides space to place sundry bath items in the wet areas. Across the room a long vanity floats off the wall with rectangular vessel sinks and is topped with a large mirror that features built in storage. There's also a separate make-up/vanity area for her and a cozy bench nook where one can sit and catch the news or sports on a built-in TV over a cup o' joe or wine. The ceiling features a conversation piece art sculpture made from wooden tubes of varied diameters and lengths. Vinyl plank flooring simulating wood is easy on the feet and eyes and makes for easy clean-up too.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Washing and drying takes on new meaning in this combined bath/laundry space. The bath makeover starts with a little farmhouse chic, with wood slat arches framing the door from bedroom to bath, into the shower, and above the deck-mounted air tub. The white enameled vanity features rustic hardware, granite top and under-mount sinks. A large shower for two is wrapped in Carrara Marble and accented with clean-line, polished chrome rain-heads and body sprays. Next to a tub sits a three-sided gas fireplace that allows viewing and warmth from bath and bedroom with a mirrored mantle and more Carrara marble on the facing. A sliding barn door opens to reveal an upper floor laundry with stackable washer/dryer. The ceiling is framed out with a large, DIY, tufted fabric panel and light fixture, and a DIY laundry drying rack completes the space.
With the help of the Bath Crashers crew, Brendan and Brittany want to turn their bathroom into a space they enjoy. To do that, a tub they never use comes out. In its place sits the massive two-person shower they've always wanted with a larger window, floating Ipe floor, shower tower with sprays and separate handheld by the bench. French doors are added for a more dramatic entrance. The sinks are showpieces that float out from the wall and in-between them sits a speaker box with wireless controlled music.
A tiny bathroom didn't meet the needs of a teenager who uses a wheelchair. He was unable to shower on his own and couldn't turn around once in the room. The Bath Crashers team solved the problem by blowing out some walls to transform the room into a bigger, accessible and beautiful space. A long vanity with concrete sink allows unimpeded roll-up and ease of use. An in-wall TV highlights the expanded toilet area that features grab bars with built-in nightlights. The enlarged space features plenty of wall-to-wall storage on the way to the shower. A touch of a button slides the shower door open for access to the wet room, where a large adjustable shower-head and body sprays are controlled with an anti-scald valve. The entire space is designed with ease of maneuvering a wheelchair, including an automatic sliding pocket door for entry.
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.
