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.
Taking advantage of outdoor and indoor space is what this bathroom is all about, starting with a giant window along the outside wall to bring in natural light and breathtaking views of a large wooded lot teaming with wildlife. The brighter space is enhanced with a large soaking tub and his and her floating vanities in separate parts of the room. A huge walk-in shower features concrete panels etched with trees, with a TV embedded on an opposite wall. A DIY Shoji screen serves as an entrance to the bath space and when opened neatly overlays a built-in book nook. Hand-scraped Ivory White Oak covers the floor for a clean outdoorsy look and feel, and wood veneer is woven into a work of art on one of the walls to add a touch of contemporary chic to the 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This tiny, cold and cramped room has the homeowners longing for a tropical getaway right in their home. To do this, Bath Crashers expands the bathroom and brings the beach into this remodel. The shower brings water in a big way with a rain showerhead, wall showerhead and body sprays. Custom tiles made of materials found at the shore add an eye-catching pop of color and a media set-up that includes a TV, speakers and lighting control will bring the soothing sounds and images of the shore to this space.
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.
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.
