Everything in this home has been remodeled and designed to reflect the homeowners' tastes -- except for the master bath, that is. Giant walls of mirror cover almost every surface, and these homeowners are ready for a change. Matt ditches the mirrors and the weird round tub and guts the rest of the space. He also brings in a steam shower with mood lighting, softly glowing sinks, separate vanities and the perfect mirror. The result is a relaxing private oasis high above the treetops.
One bachelor's run-of-the-mill master bath is transformed into the ultimate guy's paradise with a built-in bar! Masculine products are used throughout, from the concrete tile to the custom-built metal and pleather vanities. The hand dryer, stainless steel toilet and first-ever Bath Crashers urinal make this one unforgettable design.
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!
Let the crash begin! The bathroom in this charming bungalow is anything but. The walls are covered in a combination of ducks and mold, the skylight is clearly homemade and the entire space is dark and depressing. Matt opens up the area with a giant window and a proper skylight and ditches the ducks for an arts-and-crafts theme. He also adds storage with a unique spinning shelf and installs a custom wooden tub.
Two small pink bathrooms have the Cox family seeing red. Neither space makes any sense until Matt shows up and starts tearing down walls. Now the centerpiece of the large bathroom is a sunken shower, hidden behind a wall of water. Dark, rich colors replace the Pepto-Bismol pink, and an in-laid parquet floor also changes up the space. Finally, rounding out this makeover, a new sliding glass door provides a beautiful entranceway for this family's dream bathroom.
Bath Crashers is crashing Seattle! And one couple is about to receive the ultimate master bathroom makeover inspired by the Pacific Northwest. To start things off, Matt brings in teak flooring throughout the space and up the wall to create a backdrop for a fireplace above the tub. Plus, custom glass counters, a unique skylight and pebble tile accents set this space apart and give this couple the perfect his-and-hers retreat.
Matt and his crew are crashing Seattle, with plans to customize one homeowner's master bath with a combination of hi-tech gadgets and eco-friendly materials. Cork floors, recycled tile and reclaimed wood bring in the "green" elements of Seattle style, and a large window brings in the amazing view of the water. And for the software-engineer homeowner, the room is tricked out with digital faucets, motorized doors and a 40-inch TV hidden in the mirror.
These homeowners and their master bathroom just don't fit, literally and figuratively. This husband-and-wife team is tall, but the fixtures in their current bathroom are small. The couple is hip and edgy, but their bathroom is bland and predictable. Lucky for them, Matt and the Bath Crashers team will knock out a wall, cover the floors and walls with marble and metal and bring in a black-and-white color scheme. The crew also adds a giant walk-in shower and an out-of-this-world tub. The end result? A bright, open bathroom that just might be the coolest room in the house.
Bath Crashers is crashing Minneapolis! And these homeowners are in desperate need of some help. They've tried to make the best of their bathroom's weird floor plan, but the open space behind the tub is too small for anything but a bunch of plants. The result is that their bathroom looks like a terrarium stuck in the '60s. With the help of the local fire department, the Bath Crashers team will knock out the walls on either side of the bathroom. The new space will have a wet room, double vanities and a super cool tub that sits next to a curved tile wall. Plus, what appears to be a storage shelf is actually a hidden door that swings open into the master bedroom closet. And the best part? The plants do come back but as a piece of art, which is just fine with these homeowners.
A dreary gray bathroom gets a 180-degree transformation when Matt and his crew crash San Francisco. The space becomes a personal spa with an infinity tub that has a view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Marble floors and a marble shower kick up the luxury factor, and a walnut-plank wall adds richness to warm the space. To top off this makeover, the Bath Crashers team installs a 10-foot onyx countertop that glows at the flip of a switch.
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.
The Bath Crashers team is taking on Blog Cabin! Matt Muenster, along with Blog Cabin host Matt Blashaw, have the ultimate transformation in store for the master suite in this 1905 farmhouse, starting off with the master bath. The space will be a calm oasis, with a beautiful stand-alone tub set in a windowed alcove, a unique custom ceiling, a private water closet, soothing colors and a beadboard wall that captures the spirit of the historic home. Moving on to the bedroom, the guys anchor the room with a luxurious bed and a one-of-a-kind headboard. The team then repurposes a mantel from a fireplace, turning it into a tufted elegant headboard. And to top things off, a built-in reading nook is the perfect place to watch the sun set or read a favorite book. The lucky winners of this home will really feel like they've left the rest of the world behind when they step into this space.
Size is not a problem in this bathroom. The room is 230 square feet, and the ceilings stretch 16 feet into the air. But with all this space, the layout makes no sense. The bathtub is on an odd platform, and the toilet is even a step higher, causing the homeowners to trip in the dark. The shower is bizarrely small and leaky, and the 20 giant globe lights make the place feel like a warehouse. Matt and the Bath Crashers team are on hand to give the place an elegant custom makeover. A dome ceiling replaces the unusually high ceiling, which is anchored by a stunning chandelier. Empty spaces are now built-in storage, reachable by a sliding ladder. Best of all, the toilet is no longer visible from the street and has its own private space. The team also changes the coffin-like shower into a huge walk-in with a custom mosaic tile art piece on one wall. Plus, curved vanities, floor-to-ceiling drapery and antique silver mirrors make even the worst morning bed head look elegant.
