Given the amount of time people spend in their bathrooms, it’s no wonder that this is a popular remodeling choice. A National Association of Home Builders survey showed that it is also the most-requested type of remodeling job. In the United States, 78% of the renovations requested are for bathroom remodels.
If you’re thinking about remodeling your master bathroom, guest bathroom, or another bathroom, you may be interested to learn what other homeowners are doing. The 2016 Houzz Bathroom Trends Study showed that 30% of its participants were having a shower remodel that expanded this space by at least 50%. Different types of shower models were on the list for 87% of the homeowners renovating their bathrooms.
When deciding to upgrade their master bathrooms, 90% of homeowners decided to change the overall style of this room. Over 4 out of 5 homeowners chose to replace the flooring, countertops, showers, and sinks. Since high-tech features are now available with 10% of new bathtubs and showers, these are on many homeowner’s wish lists along with a decorative back splash.
Do you have a bathroom that hasn’t been updated for a decade or longer? Apparently, 73% of homeowners are focusing on bathrooms that haven’t been renovated for 16 or more years. Whether you would like a tub remodel, a shower remodel, or a total bathroom remodel, there are so many beautiful bathroom designs available.
If you’re looking for a few design ideas, it’s a good idea to consult with a bathroom contractor. After they evaluate the amount of space you have available in your existing bathrooms, they will be able to make recommendations. During this time, they will also assess your plumbing and electrical systems to determine if these need to be upgraded as well.
Are you upgrading or renovating your home to put it on the market? Then you’re likely aware that remodeling the master bathroom, or adding on a second or third bathroom, can increase your home’s value and bring a solid return on your investment.
Whether you’re remodeling to sell or to enjoy for decades to come, it makes sense to focus on creating a home environment that reflects your tastes and lifestyle.
