My Chat with Contractor Matt Muenster by Jesse Bluma

My Chat with Contractor Matt Muenster

Today I got a chance to chat with contractor Matt Muenster.  I asked him, "In the most awesome room you could design, what kinds of cookies, brownies, or cupcakes would be on the table?"  Matt told me "Im more of a salty snack guy. Endless bags of chips is the way to my heart."   

You may recognize Matt from television shows on HGTV and on the DIY Network.  "I received my bachelors degree in Interior Design from the University of Wisconsin at Madison and have been practicing professionally ever since. 

My design career began in hospitality – designing restaurants and casinos. My interests then shifted to the residential market and for over five years I worked as a designer and project manager for a high-end residential Interior Design firm in Minneapolis.

Things then took a surprising turn with one phone call – an invitation to be a guest designer on HGTV's “Decorating Cents”. That opportunity led to my current role hosting the new series,“Bath Crashers” on DIY Network.

I am a husband, father, homeowner and truly an avid do-it-yourselfer. I enjoy getting my hands dirty in order to transform a design plan into realty – maximizing my unique set of skills to creating a custom look on a modest budget. My goal is to prove that even in tough economic times, good design can still be achieved with a little know-how and some hard work.

Matt earned his degree in interior design from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. He initially got his feet wet designing restaurants and casinos and even worked on the Angolan Project in Africa. Eventually, his fervor for design shifted to the residential sector. His professional experience includes high-end interior design, and he gets an adrenaline rush every time he transforms a boring bathroom into a fantastic one on DIY Network’s "Bath Crashers" and "BATHtastic!' series."
