RCD will be featured on an upcoming episode of DIY Network’s Bath Crashers. Dubbed “Sleek Seattle Waterfront Bath”, the episode will air Thursday, July 12th, at 5pm (PST). The episode is premiering as part of DIY’s annual Crash Week (July 8-July 13).
This will be RCD’s second appearance on the show. Host Matt Muenster works with his team of builders to complete an extensive bathroom remodel using mostly donated materials and fixtures. After assessing the goals and tastes of the homeowners, the designer (RCD, working behind the scenes) puts initial plans and a wish-list of specifications together. The show’s producers then work with both local and national suppliers to get material donations.
We were fortunate enough to get to work with Environite products, which was at the top of our list for countertops. Environite is a local, Camano Island-based company that makes beautiful solid surface countertops using 90% recycled products, including recycled glass. The result is a fabulous, sustainable material with a look and performance similar to quartz and terrazzo.
Here’s a sneak peek at what you can expect to see on the show:
We started with a “Roman Bath meets 70’s Disco” interior, complete with walls of mirrors and faux columns. The goal for the new look was to incorporate natural woods and materials, and to create a sumptuous freestanding bath and shower room, as well as a unique water feature.
Below are our project renderings, which will be “unveiled” during the show.
The result is a fabulous spa bathroom suite with a walk-through shower, a seating area that features a unique LED candle feature, natural wood flooring and a stunning water wall behind the freestanding bath.
We really enjoyed the challenge of keeping the project vision while making necessary design and finish changes based on what was donated. The result is fun, fresh and luxurious.
We hope you enjoy!
