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 bathroom is not only big in size; it has big problems. The red tub and matching red sinks are just a few of the many things wrong with this space. Gutting it and starting over will fix the problem. Dark stone tile, custom ash cabinetry and barn-wood create the new palate. A double shower and massive jetted tub help fill the space. Skylights, a stained glass window and star-lit wall feature brings in special lighting while an ethanol-burning fireplace and heated stone counter-tops at the vanity are added for warmth.
A small, outdated, pink tile bathroom expands into a large adjoining room to become a warm, inviting spa with contemporary finishes and amenities. The old bath becomes an entire shower area with body sprays set in linear copper tile and a large ceiling-mounted rain head. The main bath area features 'his' and 'her' vanities on opposite sides of the room, flanking a huge, deep soaker tub. More copper tile covers the entire tub wall, in the middle of which sits a pierced copper window covering that slides on a track for privacy. A geometric arbor crafted from bamboo suspends from the ceiling over the vanities, and allows light to bathe the bath from a large, new skylight.
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.
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.
Matt Muenster and the Bath Crashers crew create an ecofriendly, sustainable and gorgeous bathroom. After removing the walls, this bathroom is now a nearly uninterrupted flow from the bedroom. A raised wood floor sets the stage for the glass box encloses the huge shower and etched glass panels provide privacy and move along a track the length of the shower. A memorable double sink vanity with paperstone countertop and petrified wood vessel sinks flanks the side wall. The long and deep soaker tub is framed with a sleek floating deck built from cedar planks and makes for the perfect place to relax with a glass of wine and a good book. The tub wall is clad with recycled panel doors that are cut in a unique grid and enameled. Outside the shower sits a small bench with a removable, gasless and ventless fireplace to add to the ambience. Topping things off is an open ceiling made from reclaimed timbers, forming a pergola overhead.
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.
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.
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.
Bath Crashers doesn't do beige, so a construction grade space is the perfect project to tear down and start over. Goodbye golden oak and hello to new, modern materials and amenities. A sleek soaking tub replaces the ugly corner jetted one that never go used. A two-person shower with waterproof TV is added for extra entertainment. LED lit trim and solar tube mix modern and natural light and a cocktail bar with butcher-block countertop completes this once boring bathroom's new transformation.
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.
A moldy bathroom too small and dark to do makeup in, let alone much else, is transformed into a large, warm, well-lit space featuring spa-like amenities. A large hammered copper slipper tub catches the eye first, with an oil rubbed bronze tub filler sitting atop an acacia wood floor. A 2-sided 'look through' fireplace perched next to the tub is surrounded by multi-hued stacked stone. The expanded shower is decked out with large format porcelain tiles on the wall, pebbles on the floor, a large rain shower head, and tiled bench. The space is completed with an accent wall made of copper pennies-turned-into-tiles, and a towel rack/towel bar fashioned from copper pipe.
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.
