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.
Two bathrooms and a mudroom are transformed into one massive dream space with a roomy shower for two and freestanding bath. A custom vanity is topped with a navy apron front kitchen sink and above, a copper mirror frame with matching blue patina. Antique suitcases become drawer fronts for a unique linen cabinet and the base for a makeup vanity chair. To push the suitcase theme over the top, a boom box built into an alligator print Samsonite.
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.
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.
Matt Muenster and the Bath Crashers crew are at Blog Cabin 2013. With the help of America's voters, they turn a small bathroom and bedroom into a perfect beach getaway. They add a huge wet-room with a walk-in shower built for two, a gorgeous soaking tub, positioned under a new skylight, plenty of storage and some incredible new fixtures. The bedroom is a mix of vintage and new, all of it anchored by a one of a kind bed. And off of this sweet suite, a porch with a swing, perfect for catching an ocean breeze and relaxint.
Before: Eight Sides of Horror. After: A showstopper. This octagon-shaped space has 12-foot ceilings, a wall of windows and tons of potential. To give this bath the modern look the homeowner wants, everything must get ripped out. The new layout is made square and filled with a big, beautiful shower with body sprays and speakers. On the floor, which is heated, half the room is covered with a fumed oak and underneath the soaking tub lays black pebbles. Behind the tub, the old windows get replaced by an entire wall of sliding glass panels, which gives the perfect view to the outdoors.
This crash makes an existing bath seem much bigger and better with just a few changes in layout and by adding luxury. The brown tub and ugly deck are replaced with an infinity soaker with chromatherapy and wrapped apron for storage. The dark oak vanity gives way to a sleek glass one that floats off wall and features compartmentalized storage, plug-ins for sundry bath electronics, and a lift up mirror that houses an HDTV. A full length mirrored cabinet with more storage and plugins offsets and compliments the vanity. The carpeting is ripped out and large slabs of tile go down, with an 8-foot strip of lighted, blasted glass embedded in the floor between. The shower is upgraded with more large tile, large rain head, body sprays, and handcrafted cedar bench. The final touch is a DIY wood wall with a design blasted into maple planks and lit with tiny LEDs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
This wacky, wood-paneled basement bathroom is a complete disaster. The homeowners love to entertain, especially during the holidays, but their current space just doesn't work. So when Matt Muenster chose them from hundreds at Mall of America, they were psyched! Bath Crashers blows out the old, and brings back the exciting and new with this party pad bath. A massive whirlpool tub becomes the center of attention. 'His' and 'hers' toilet rooms with urinal and TV accommodate the masses, and the custom-built space for the keggerator will make these guests never want to leave.
