Sharon and John Distase and their daughter, Sydney, love the great outdoors. Their house has a beautiful backyard and is right in the middle of the woods. Unfortunately, their love of nature has gone way too far, as is evidenced by their jungle-like guest bathroom. Between the blue-brown lily pads wallpaper and the leopard and giraffe accents, this room is screaming for a renovation. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Marc Bartolomeo set out to transform this wild kingdom into a stylish kid-friendly bathroom for Sydney.
Gina and Gabe are busy parents of three boys who hate their outdated brown bathroom with its dangerous tub, medieval lighting and mustard yellow fixtures. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Marc Bartolomeo create a plan to renovate this tackily tiled bath into a masculine masterpiece for the growing boys.
Allison is very neat, but her husband, Kevin, is not. That doesn't bode well for trying to share a cramped bathroom on a daily basis. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Marc Bartolomeo sign on to save this bath by providing a better layout that gives each a separate area to really express their individual personalities.
Beth and Gadi Beer are two busy parents who just want to relax after a long day. But when they walk into their bathroom, what they get is full-on sensory overload! There's an ugly blue-green color scheme, fuzzy wallpaper and an overbearing scent of mothballs. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Marc Bartolomeo set out to transform this overloaded space into a beautiful beach cottage bath the homeowners are sure to love.
Jacey and Ted Lucas arent afraid to roll up their sleeves and get to work. In fact, theyre currently renovating most of their home, but when it came to their bathroom, they decided to call in the experts. Their disorienting bathroom presents a few unique challenges: a two-tiered room with a step to get up the next level, a wild black-and-white checkered tile pattern, and an odd glass strip of tile in the shower that provides an actual window into the other bathroom. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Marc Bartolomeo set out to transform this chaotic space into a Zen-like bath with plenty of storage space.
Some bathrooms are old, some bathrooms are ugly, and then there's Nyla and Tony Prince's bathroom. It's completely washed out. There is too much out-of-date yellow everywhere, and there's an odd-shaped vanity, very little storage and a ceiling fan in the shower, of all places. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Marc Bartolomeo set out to transform this space into a contemporary, colorful bathroom filled with soothing amenities, open storage and modern fixtures.
Barbara and Ken Maier have a beautiful swimming pool in their backyard and really do not need another one in their master bathroom. The huge blue tub totally dominates the space. At over four-and-a-half feet wide, six feet long and nearly three feet deep, it takes the better part of an hour to fill it. Aside from that, the room could use some updating. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Marc Bartolomeo are ready to transform this space into a traditional master bath with some modern style.
Some people are wallpaper people, and some aren't. But let's face it, if you're going to put it up, it should really reflect your tastes and not actually reflect back at you. When Karen and Jonathan Friedman walk into the blinding bathroom of their 2-year-old son, Benjamin, they can see themselves from every angle in shiny, reflective blue wallpaper that covers the walls and even the ceiling. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Marc Bartolomeo sign on to transform this shiny space with a more subtle, contemporary design.
Bryn and Josh Gillow are a very tight-knit couple who love spending time together. Except in the bathroom. That's the one place they both agree that they need more privacy. There is no wall separating their bedroom from their bathroom, so they officially call this space their "bedathroom." And that's just part of the problem. There's also a tiny shower, oddly shaped tub, wall-to-wall pink carpeting and purple walls. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Marc Bartolomeo sign on to take the bed out of this bath and redesign the room with a warm, modern touch.
You don't have to go far to figure out just why Heather and Jim Russell are unhappy with their master bathroom. One step inside, and the glowing harvest gold color is an assault on the eyes. Everything in this room is some shade of gold from the tile on the wall to the tile on the floor and even the fixtures in between. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Marc Bartolomeo are enlisted to take this space from a gold nightmare to a serene functional place the whole family can enjoy.
This dull white bathroom is boring homeowners Kirsten and George Raleigh to tears. The vanity provides the only color in the room, but it's found in rust stains and bad oak laminate. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Marc Bartolomeo are determined to infuse some personality into this drab space by adding rich colors and textures.
Having a plastic pink flamingo in the front yard is one thing, but putting them all over the bathroom is a whole other story. For Koreen and Sean Fader, these pink pests are just one of many issues in their outdated pink and gray bathroom. There's also peeling wallpaper, dated lighting and tacky tile. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Marc Bartolomeo develop a plan to transform this space into a relaxing vacation-style bathroom suite.
Andy and Linda Polowy are fed up with their over-the-top country-style bathroom. The color scheme is pink, green and more pink! Adding insult to injury is the requirement of walking through the laundry room to get to the bathroom. Designer Krista Watterworth and carpenter Marc Bartolomeo plan to refresh this space by giving it a modern country style that blends in with the rest of the house.
