Big Bright Basement Bath

This basement bathroom is small, dark and ugly. Utilizing the empty mechanical room next door with new egress window helps open and brighten up this new layout. A corner fireplace warms up the room and gets it glowing. A soaking tub and walk-in shower allow for two ways to relax, while custom, handmade tiles and a concrete trough sink make this bathroom a one-of-a-kind remodel.

Functional & Funky

Two small bathrooms become one big space, spiced up with eye-catching amenities. A large soaker tub sits atop a patterned cement tile floor. Across the way is a large walk-in shower featuring white-crackle tile and a niche along the entire length of the main wall accented with stacked yellow onyx. That stone is also used on the vanity countertop, where two vessel sinks sit below fixtures that emerge from the wall. The toilet is closed off for privacy with a custom panel of floor-to-ceiling glass. Among the DIY features are the outside shower wall that is created by charring cedar boards and varnishing for a beautiful, glossy texture, and a wall of storage boxes with metallic-looking backing and accent lighting. There's also a DIY chandelier made with aluminum tubes and glass panels. A piece of art created with wall vent covers finishes off the wall space, and a wireless sound system pumps in the homeowner's favorite music.

Sleek and Concrete

This master bathroom is too bland for these homeowners. To get the modern makeover they want, space is added from an adjoining dining area. Two skylights are added through the attic to give a light tunnel effect. A sleek, freestanding tub sits on a concrete platform and is given privacy with a sliding smoked glass panel. The walls are floor to ceiling concrete including in the shower, which has steam and music. The result is a sleek, contemporary space with plenty of architectural interest.

Wardrobe Showstopper

The Swartzes' master bathroom makes zero sense. The shower, sink and toilet areas are tiny, cramped rooms, and the closet is huge and useless. Matt completely guts the room and pulls out the ill-advised carpet. He then flips the layout, and a series of sleek wardrobes now line the entrance to the contemporary space. Plus, a freestanding fireplace will separate the bathroom from the bedroom, providing both warmth and privacy.

Lake House Retreat Bath: Reclaimed Wood, Fireplace and Shower Room with Infinity Tub

A massive bathroom is transformed into the ultimate spa retreat with accents including a fireplace and reclaimed wood wall with custom art piece burned into it. A ten foot vanity floating on the wall is topped with glass vessel sinks that look like blocks of ice. A custom wood and metal canopy defines the shower room space, which includes an infinity tub, stand up shower and horizontal shower bench.

Walk-thru Shower

Brandon and Tara wanted their basement to be a place to hang out, watch TV and use the bar area. But the bathroom was dullsville. So the Bath Crashers crew gave the room a make-over for the ages. There's a vanity shaped like an amoeba, a lounge area with colored lights, a giant whirlpool that can seat four and a shower for two. Extras like a two-way mirror and a water feature pouring down the wall make this a fun place for all their guests. But getting to that "fun place" wasn't all fun and games after the crew hits a water main and floods out the basement.

Magical Transformation

These magician homeowners wish to conjure up some storage in their plain, forgettable bathroom. Licensed contractor Matt Muenster and the Bath Crashers team come up with a wall of storage, a huge walk-in shower and some magical extras including a glass door that changes images depending on where you are in the room, kid friendly touches like an erase board with a hidden step and sophisticated new fixtures and colors.

Holiday Party Palace

This wacky, wood-paneled basement bathroom is a complete disaster. The homeowners love to entertain, especially during the holidays, but their current space just doesn't work. So when Matt Muenster chose them from hundreds at Mall of America, they were psyched! Bath Crashers blows out the old, and brings back the exciting and new with this party pad bath. A massive whirlpool tub becomes the center of attention. "His" and "hers" toilet rooms with urinal and TV accommodate the masses, and the custom-built space for the keggerator will make these guests never want to leave.

Rustic Modern Master Bath

This 70s disaster bath is transformed into a contemporary getaway with modern and rustic elements including cork floors and a metal vanity topped with walnut. The closet is completely blown out to become a one-of-a-kind backdrop with curved walls, custom metal rods and a textured wall treatment. A massive square tub shares space with the new shower and both are set behind switchable privacy glass.

Shower Showstopper

When you already have a big bathroom like these homeowners do, the possibilities are endless. Bath Crashers takes this big and boring space to the next level by completely blowing up the room and starting over. A massive storefront window expands the view overlooking a golf course while a sleek soaking infinity tub sits in front of it. The shower that sits in the center of the room is completely enclosed in glass. Waterproof speaker tiles are installed for a touch of tech and custom closets fill the perimeter of this modern remodel.

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.

Shower With the Works

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.
