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.
This construction grade bathroom is in need of a spark. Bath Crashers throws out the old and brings back the new in a cool way. Carrera and bold mosaic patterns fill every corner of this room. The new soaker tub sits underneath a ceiling feature of flowers lit by LED's. The shower is made bigger and given a window looking into a modern candle-lit 'fireplace' while the perimeter of the bathroom glows with custom LED crown molding.
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.
The rustic styling of Sedona, Arizona turns a small, dingy, outdated bath space into a cozy, Midwest spa. The space is expanded by stealing an empty bedroom to make room for a double-sink vanity that features a Spanish wrought iron skirt-surround. There's also space for a long, deep copper tub with floor-mounted tub filler. On the floor, cold-pressed recycled poplar is used to create a stunning, durable, waterproof surface that is accented with a 5' by 3' 'tile rug' from earth-tone colored slate. The same slate is used to tile the new, spacious shower. Sconce lighting fashioned after ranch-style gas lanterns flank the vanity sinks, and more warmth is provided by a gas fireplace wrapped in multi-hued river rock.
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.
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.
An all-pink, tiled bathroom is too cramped for this soon-to-be family of three. In need of more space, the wall between the bath and living room is knocked down. With a clean slate to work with, the homeowners' love for water and fish becomes the theme for the new space. A massive, 150-gallon saltwater aquarium is the focal point of the room. A 'his' shower with a rain showerhead and custom tile sits on one side of the tank, while a 'hers' relaxing air bath is on the other. Above the tub are reclaimed wood beams with cove lighting for a glowing effect. Custom double vanities add much needed space while dark, bamboo floors complete the rustic, rainforest feel.
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.
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.
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.
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.
A master bath in Nashville is transformed into a modern space with natural elements including Ipe hardwood floors and marble vanities with basalt sinks. A sleek stainless fireplace is installed between the vanities and custom wood shelving above holds power outlets hidden from view. A massive steam shower is the centerpiece with two shower stations and a pedicure footbath.
A boring bathroom gets high-tech upgrades. Host and licensed contractor Matt Muenster and the Bath Crashers crew expand a one person shower to fit two, add lighted chromatherapy rain shower heads and a digital control panel for individually heated water settings. A huge, circular, stainless steel tub sits on a raised, tiled platform and features a free-standing tub filler. Tubular skylights provide natural daylight and energy-saving LEDs light the space at night. Side-by-side curved vanities finished with glass counter tops and a metal-like laminate add a space-age look and feel, as do the stainless steel drop-in sinks and fixtures floating out from the wall. A conveyor system is added to the adjoining walk-in closet for automated storage.
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.
