Rusty, Rotting and Ripe for Renovation

The Bad, Bad Bath team sets out to turn this nightmare room into a dream.

Barbara and Mike Cremean's bathroom needs a complete overhaul. The comfortable and stylish look of the home falls apart in this space.

The rusty pole smack dab in the middle of the room and the rotting floor create a safety hazard--not to mention the curling irons that hang right next to the bathtub! Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Steven Whittle tackle the challenge of incorporating the couple's comfortable style from the rest of their home into this problem area.

The transformation is complete! Renovations include a new sink, tub, shower door, wall and floor tiles, contemporary mirror and hardware. Fresh paint on the closet doors provides the finishing touch.
