Episode 8

Grotto Shower

A bathroom barely bigger than a powder room expands into a grand luxury suite. The focal point is a huge wet room that houses a big, deep soaker tub and his/her shower heads and body sprays. Recycled granite highlights the tub wall, while three different types of tile are blended to create a unique 'rug' in the shower area. Elegant, DIY candle lanterns are suspended above the tub, and an arched entry into the shower with three glass panels finish off the space and keeps the rest of the room dry. Opposite the shower sits a huge double sink vanity, featuring a soapstone countertop and plenty of cabinets and drawers for storage. The space is enhanced with two large mirrors with built-in light strips, pendants above each sink, and floating shelves in the space between mirrors. One of the mirrors even features a TV. A DIY string pendant provides unique lighting in the new water closet, and a DIY towel rack built with Ipe adds a final, functional feature.

Sleek and Concrete

This master bathroom is too bland for these homeowners. To get the modern makeover they want, space is added from an adjoining dining area. Two skylights are added through the attic to give a light tunnel effect. A sleek, freestanding tub sits on a concrete platform and is given privacy with a sliding smoked glass panel. The walls are floor to ceiling concrete including in the shower, which has steam and music. The result is a sleek, contemporary space with plenty of architectural interest.

Fiery Red & Black Bath

Matt and his Crashers crew kick up a standard bath with sexy, modern features at every turn, including a sleek wood countertop with a bright red translucent stain. Concrete floors provide pop below with a mottled stain in gray, black and red. And along the whole back wall, the shower becomes a focal point with a black crocodile slab, large white tile, teak accents and a built-in waterproof TV.

Something Old, Something New

Matt chooses one homeowner from hundreds at an open casting call, and she really needs help. Her bathroom is a disaster, made worse by the belief that a tube of caulk can solve every problem. Plus, the door is off the vanity, the shower is about to fall over and the bathroom, which could barely serve one, now has to accommodate a boyfriend. Matt decides to steal space from a connecting bedroom to help open up this cramped room. A brick chimney that is original to the home will separate two floating vanities with concrete countertops and vessel sinks. In a separate, tiled space the Crashers crew is bringing in a sleek soaking tub and walk-in shower, complete with body sprays. And a stacked wood wall will act as a focal point for a flat-screen TV.

Dog's Best Bathroom

With the help of the Bath Crashers crew, this small space gets big makeover not only for the homeowners, but their two dogs as well. Having a place where the pooches can enter the house, without going through the kitchen was a big want. To solve this issue, an electric doggie door into the new bathroom is installed. The shower is made bigger by ditching the unused tub, which now opens up the space for separate bathing areas for humans and their furry friends. Large-scale tiles cover the walls and floor to make it waterproof and low-maintenance. And a beautifully lit ceiling detail adds style and elegance to this remodel.

Functional, Funky Formula

Two small bathrooms become one big space, spiced up with eye-catching amenities. A large soaker tub sits atop a patterned cement tile floor. Across the way is a large walk-in shower featuring white-crackle tile and a niche along the entire length of the main wall accented with stacked yellow onyx. That stone is also used on the vanity countertop, where two vessel sinks sit below fixtures that emerge from the wall. The toilet is closed off for privacy with a custom panel of floor-to-ceiling glass. Among the DIY features are the outside shower wall that is created by charring cedar boards and varnishing for a beautiful, glossy texture, and a wall of storage boxes with metallic-looking backing and accent lighting. There's also a DIY chandelier made with aluminum tubes and glass panels. A piece of art created with wall vent covers finishes off the wall space, and a wireless sound system pumps in the homeowner's favorite music.

Girls Gone Glam

Mom and her four girls get a functional, fancy new bathroom, but there's something for Dad, too. It starts with reconfiguring the small, lofty space to make room for a huge vanity and big sink featuring two sets of fixtures emerging from a large plate glass mirror with accent LED lighting. Above the vanity are storage cubbies with lighting for the little ladies that are accessed with a rolling ladder system. More storage is built in next to the vanity above a small make-up area. On the floor is vinyl tile laid out in a herringbone pattern. The tiled shower features a teak bench and a steam unit that Dad will love. Stacked stone veneer wall is installed as a DIY and then given a special paint wash. The bathroom entrance becomes a DIY project, as a solid core door is embellished with trim and molding and painted pink. A chandelier is fitted inside an antique Victorian birdcage as one more DIY and hung from the ceiling in the center of the space.

Would You Like a Massage With That?

The current bathroom for these homeowners is small and needs to get bigger, fast. They use this space not only for everyday use, but also as a changing area for their pool. Adding unused bedroom space helps give the new design the spa experience this couple wanted. A wet room with dual-music playing showerheads and hydrotherapy bed sit on one side of the room. A sunken, soaker tub becomes a relaxation spot, which sits next to a fire and water feature that are lined with granite walls. If that's not enough, a fireplace divides the room from the master bedroom. A separate changing room for the pool sits next to the new exterior entrance, which is completely redone with fresh landscaping, hot tub and outdoor shower.

Episode 1

Construction Grade to Upgrade

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.

Basement Lounge

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.

Black and White Vintage Wetroom

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.

Blue White and Beautiful

A bathroom better described as a powder room becomes a huge master bedroom spa. It starts with his and her vanities that are sleek furniture pieces that feature drawers that can be compartmentalized in a variety of ways for storage. There's also a lap drawer to extend her vanity into a separate make-up area; and both feature shelves with electrical hookups to keep things tidy. A deep, oval soaking tub sits atop a herringbone wood floor. Nearby is the large walk-in shower with large faux Carrera marble tile and a convenient bench. A private water closet features a separate sink, and a large closet system gives the homeowners plenty of storage for linens and clothes. Crown molding encases the entire new space, finished off with a cozy, ethanol-burning fireplace on the tub wall, which also shows off aesthetic sconce candle lighting done as a DIY project.

Granite Getaway

This tiny bathroom with blue tile everywhere needs to be crashed, and fast! Stealing hallway space allows each area of the new bathroom to have its own designated room. The tub and shower spaces are separated by a full piece of glass and are enclosed by a curved stacked granite wall. The floors are heated for comfort and decorative acrylic panels provide privacy, yet allow for natural light to spill in from windows in the hallway.
