A few weeks after their new home was completed, a tornado hit their place leaving just their bathroom intact. Unfortunately, for Matt and Amy, this was the one room they weren't satisfied with. Lucky for our host that these homeowners are really handy and very creative. Amy has experience in making stain glass so she and Matt design a custom piece for the new bathroom. A large Jacuzzi tub is an upgrade along with the new stand up shower and cool concrete countertops. With a name like "Coppersmith" it's only natural that copper accents are used to complete the look.

Matt takes this bathroom from builder-grade boring to something they can finally be proud of.

Anna thought she was buying a home with two bathrooms, but a lavatory without walls isn't a legal bathroom at all. Anna wants her new basement bath to be fun, functional and unique.

What this bathroom lacks in ceiling height, it makes up for in eye-catching custom details!

Nicole trusted Steve when they bought their home without her having seen the place first. He was right; it was a winner, aside from the outdated master bathroom.
