A small bathroom that is falling apart is turned into a beautiful, classic space with the help of the Bath Crashers crew. A large, carrera marble steam shower is added. Custom storage makes practical use of the space. Natural light fills the room and a built-in coffee bar make it easy to rise and shine in this bathroom remodel.
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.
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.
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.
Small, narrow, and mundane becomes roomier with touches of farmhouse charm. The space expands into the master bedroom and features a vaulted ceiling with reclaimed wood planks and beams. A vintage-looking, ombre hued tub and chrome filler take over the area once occupied by an unused whirlpool tub. Wall-mounted farmhouse sinks with chrome fixtures line one wall, with subway tile backsplash and vintage sconce lighting. A steel frame, welded and patina'd on site, fronts two of the large shower glass panels to give it an industrial window look, and four galvanized steel farm buckets, drilled with holes and soaked in vinegar, are transformed into ceiling mounted light fixtures.
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.
Before, this bathroom barely fit a shower, vanity and toilet. To give these homeowners the master suite they've always wanted, Bath Crashers tears down a wall to take over an unused den. Now the space is big enough for a classically rustic remodel featuring woods and a white color palette. A large walk-in shower features a wood and glass wall. The double vanity made of cedar is suspended from the wall by metal chains and given a custom finish. The walls pack a punch with modular art panels and a TV disappears behind a portrait of the family with the push of a button.
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 chute, 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.
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.
A small and dysfunctional bath space expands into a family sitting room to create a luxurious spa environment that can be used by the entire family. The old bath becomes a wet room featuring a roomy shower and air tub nestled next to a cozy wood candle wall. The former sitting room transforms into a lounge-like spa space with unique hand-crafted bench seating. A double sink vanity lines one of the new walls with vessel sinks. Custom built transom windows above the vanities and door allow extra light to flood the space, which is covered in stained maple.
A dungeon-like basement bathroom needed to be transformed into a sophisticated and sparkly shrine for the homeowner. To make that happen, the 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.
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.
The Bath Crashers crew gives new meaning to chic Southern charm with a makeover of a mid-70s New Orleans bathroom. The homeowners had plenty of room, but the layout was just plain weird. The new plan reconfigures the space to make it both useful and beautiful. From the bedroom, step through a set of sliding doors into a vestibule with a center storage island and one of a kind oyster shell chandelier suspended over it. On either side of the space are spacious walk-in closets. A few more steps and you are into the bathroom area with a long vanity and a smaller make-up vanity. A roomy walk-in shower with huge rainhead sits across from a deep soaking tub, all with brushed nickel fixtures. Crown molding wraps around the ceiling, a custom painted wall has crystal accents and the flooring is a stunning pearled oak.
