You'd think it would be hard to find a 1980s bathroom in a 2006 home, but the Bath Crashers found one in the nation's No. 1 community and went to work transforming "ugh" to "aah." A gi-normous 90-inch vanity with double grey sinks and contractor's grade fixtures, as well as a formica countertop gives way to a sleek and smaller vanity with oval sinks mounted beneath a Silestone countertop. A separate make-up area with French accents is built next to the vanity with floor-to-ceiling storage for plenty of towels and linens alongside of it. Those spaces are grabbed by removing the overly large whirlpool tub, making room to build a privacy wall to hide the new toilet area. The shower is expanded lengthwise with fixtures on each wall and a new quick drain system is installed to whisk away the water faster. The coup de grace is the intimate adult hot tub/spa the homeowners access through a new exterior door that leads onto a brand new privacy deck.
