Mile High Ceiling

This bathroom is too big, ugly and tacky for these homeowners. To tackle their bathroom nightmare, they call upon Bath Crashers to create a modern masterpiece for the space. They gut it down to the studs and re-build the room with function and style. The walk-in shower is now big enough for two with seven fixtures and music. The freestanding tub is art and sits in front of an ethanol-burning fireplace. The materials are the perfect combination of rustic meets modern with three-dimensional tiled walls and dark hardwood on the floor that are given new light with several floor-to-ceiling windows.

Rustic Renovation, With a Modern Twist

Bath Crashers turns the big, boring and cold space they have into a rustic room with a modern-day twist. Living in a heavily wooded area helps set the theme for the new look. In the center of the room is one of two vanities, which sits in front of a stunning floor to ceiling reclaimed wood wall that looks like an elaborate puzzle. This wall also separates the space behind it, a massive walk-in shower with acrylic waterproof panels. The sides of this space contain a "hers" make-up station which sits next to a wall-mounted fireplace adorned with copper panels, and a tub for the ultimate relaxation this couple will need in their "woodland" escape.

Coffee Bar and Carrera Marble

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 with a new sun tunnel and a built-in coffee bar completes this bathroom remodel.

Fabulous Flip

A large bath is flipped on its footprint to feature functional elegance. A double walk-in shower runs the length of the room with one half dedicated to steam and body sprays. The carpet is replaced with hand-scraped hickory flooring, atop which sit separate his and her vanities. A wine bar adds extra storage and is set off with a hand-crafted burned-wood countertop and mosaic backsplash. A do-it-yourself knee-wall made with glass and artificial tree branches adds privacy in the right place, and the main wall becomes an eye-catcher with a beautiful stenciled plaster treatment.

Glass Box Tub Surround

A small bathroom gets much bigger by taking closet and exterior space. On the new outside wall, windows now surround a massive soaking tub. A custom vanity is wrapped in a leather finished granite, which also covers the entire wall. In front of that wall hangs a backlit mirror that plays music and the ceiling gets an intricate trim detail to bring this transitional design together.

Swan Be-Gone

This jungle-themed bathroom is big, but very badly put together. The rainforest inspired wallpaper and swan fixtures made of brass have got to go. Gutting everything and starting with a clean slate allows the crew to make this space stand out. Beautiful marble tiles line the floor, which is heated. A new steam shower with body sprays and plenty of room, is a centerpiece. Classic touches are brought in with a claw-foot soaking tub and reclaimed armoire with matching vanities. To top it off, the ceiling becomes a showstopper with a new dome and crystal chandelier.

Bamboo Bliss

A small, ho-hum master bath is expanded by stealing space from a walk-in closet, which becomes a large, 2-person steam shower that features music and chromatherapy lights. A long, sleek, bamboo vanity replaces the old 1-person station and features offset bamboo drawer pulls. Two mirrors are encased in unique bamboo cases with a mid-century modern geometric design. Textured wall panels dress up the entire vanity wall, and the floor features classy, elegant bamboo planking. The walk-in is replaced with a new closet system that extends from the end of the vanity into the bedroom along an entire bedroom wall, and features sliding doors with a bamboo veneer. Natural light is supplied in abundance through a new skylight in the middle of the bath space.

Black and White Vintage Wetroom

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.

The Bigger the Better

This big bathroom is made even bigger by taking space from an unused sitting room with fireplace. Taking down the wall opens up the space for this modern makeover the homeowners wanted. A giant walk-through shower has two entrances and shower stations with body sprays. The existing fireplace gets a new face with a sleek, stacked stone that sits underneath a TV mirror. A larger window with plantation shutters lets in natural light and creates the perfect view for the infinity tub, which sits in the center of the room.

Cool Cork Floor

The Mennen family's bathroom was big and blah. Dull earth tones with a tub too big for the space didn't match the young, fresh feel this couple deserves to have. Tossing out the tub and adding storage in a smart way makes this room feel larger than it is. Stone shower tile transitions into an all-natural chocolate cork floor. Add "floating" vanities with some amazing hidden organization pieces, chrome fixtures and a heated towel rack, and you have one bold bathroom.

Clean Lines and Concrete

Matt and his crew are crashing a master bath that's stuck in the '80s. The result? A modern, usable space with custom accents throughout. To start this makeover off, Matt brings in a massive handcrafted concrete countertop with an integrated sink that'll top a red oak vanity, with a matching custom makeup vanity and an oak-wrapped pony wall. Plus, the old linoleum sticker flooring gets an eco-friendly upgrade -- a floating, click-together marmoleum floor that's so earth-friendly you can actually eat it!

Basement Lounge

A small basement bath takes on a pleasing decadence by first expanding into the laundry-utility room. That makes the space big enough to handle a deep, jetted, soaker tub right next to a huge walk in shower with a simulated wood wall and big shower bench. A unique shelf system made with belts provides space to place sundry bath items in the wet areas. Across the room a long vanity floats off the wall with rectangular vessel sinks and is topped with a large mirror that features built in storage. There's also a separate make-up/vanity area for her and a cozy bench nook where one can sit and catch the news or sports on a built-in TV over a cup o' joe or wine. The ceiling features a conversation piece art sculpture made from wooden tubes of varied diameters and lengths. Vinyl plank flooring simulating wood is easy on the feet and eyes and makes for easy clean-up too.

Gold-Tone Gorgeous

A bathroom better described as a powder room becomes a huge master bedroom spa. It starts with his and her vanities that are sleek furniture pieces that feature drawers that can be compartmentalized in a variety of ways for storage. There's also a lap drawer to extend her vanity into a separate make-up area; and both feature shelves with electrical hookups to keep things tidy. A deep, oval soaking tub sits atop a herringbone wood floor. Nearby is the large walk-in shower with large faux Carrera marble tile and a convenient bench. The plumbing fixtures are all a sleek, brushed gold finish, with the sink fixtures emerging from a large mirror above both vanities. A private water closet features a separate sink, and a large closet system gives the homeowners plenty of storage for linens and clothes. Crown molding encases the entire new space, finished off with a cozy, ethanol-burning fireplace on the tub wall, which also shows off aesthetic sconce candle lighting done as a DIY project.
