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.
A short, small, narrow bathroom and the master bedroom are razed to become a huge multi-functional spa flavored with Mediterranean accents and flair. The focal point is a walk-in shower in the center of the space with a large rain showerhead and body sprays. A cedar screen provides privacy on one side of the shower while storage cubbies and a unique water feature with a Jntuanantapur valance enclose two other walls of the wet space. There's a large makeup vanity for her with a Jntuanantapur cedar beam wrapped with more than half-a-dozen pendant lights suspended directly above. A long double-sink vanity with Jntuanantapur basket weave cedar doors provides clean-up outside the shower, and the entire floor is laid with classy, durable, vinyl tile planks. Cedar planks line part of the ceiling outside a separate powder room built especially for guests complete the transformation.
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.
This super blue, mid-century modern bathroom needs an update, and fast! To bring this space back to life, Bath Crashers installs large format tiles to create a mid-century minimalist look. A sleek soaking tub replaces the old blue one, which adds beauty and function to the room. Antique brass pendants add a touch of old while a wall feature of large panels with the original blue prints of the home are lit with fiber optics to highlight the new in this space.
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 dungeon-like basement bathroom needed to be transformed into a sophisticated and sparkly shrine for the homeowner. To make that happen, 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.
A bathroom with an awkward layout gets a complete overhaul. The new bathroom is warm, rustic and romantic. Reclaimed barn wood and corbels frame the new tub space, in the middle of which sits a deep soaking slipper tub with brass claw feet. On the tub wall sits an electric fireplace, which is wrapped in reclaimed tin panels. The middle of the room is divided by a huge, framed, 2-sided mirror, with a large vanity and acrylic sink on one side, and a makeup area on the other. Wood grain vinyl planks cover the main floor, and a crystal chandelier bathes the entire space in warm, reflective light.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
This master bath is too small for this family of four. Taking the adjacent bedroom, which sits next to their outdoor pool area, allows the Bath Crashers crew to combine the two spaces and turn it into a dual-purpose modern spa and pool space. The master suite side is luxuriously spacious: the vanity is a centerpiece that glows from a backlit, Onyx counter-top. The two sinks share a space with an automatic ice machine for these active homeowners to use after their runs. The tub is tricked out with jets and speakers and the shower serves two purposes: one side for everyday use with a rain-shower head and body sprays while the other side is to rinse off after hanging by the pool.
A small, outdated, pink-tiled bathroom is 86-ed to pave the way for an elegant and edgy master suite with a nod to 70s chic and Airstream trailers. First, the old bath becomes a powder room with its own vanity and sink, toilet, and a unique wood shelf art sculpture, wrapped around a new wall urinal. From there, sliding barn doors open into a spare bedroom that's transformed into the main bath space. Next to the new tub is a roomy shower featuring black and white patterned porcelain tile, large rain head, and body sprays. Wood slats on one wall and brushed aluminum on another lend an air of bygone camping trailers, while wireless speakers bring the space back to the present with modern technology for tunes.
Before, this bathroom was stuck in the 80s, featuring giant globe lights, puffy silver wallpaper and cheesy fixtures. A leaking skylight only added to the misery. Bath Crashers transformed the space into a dream escape for a single mom. A clawfoot tub, gorgeous built-ins painted the color of a Tiffany box, a sexy stand-alone shower and an elegant ceiling medallion complete the look. And if the homeowner wants to close out the rest of the world, all she has to do is shut the double-tufted, leather-encased doors.
