Houzz surveyed over two thousand homeowners who recently had or were in process of doing a complete master bathroom remodeling project to determine what design elements are being currently used for their bathroom remodeling updates. When asked what triggered them to do the bathroom remodeling project, 37% said they could no longer stand their old bathroom, 30% now had the means to do what they’ve wanted to do. Only 26% were personalizing a recently purchased home. Most of the homeowners upgraded these features (from most popular at 92% to 83%) included new: faucets, wall finish, flooring, lighting fixtures, shower, countertop(s), sink(s), and cabinetry/vanity.
The vast majority of homeowners (89%) were changing the style of their bathroom. The most popular styles were either: contemporary with clean lines being most popular (20%), followed by transitional which includes more details and textures (16%), modern which is minimalistic (15%), or traditional-classic (14%).
Nearly half of those doing a master bathroom remodeling project also included remodeling their bedroom as well to improve the layout of the rooms. Surprisingly, one in ten enlarge their master bathroom to be the same size or larger than their bedroom. Fifty-six percent of those improving their bathroom included aging-in-place elements of a curbless shower with seating and grab bars, better lighting, and for ease of maintenance, with 21% reporting they did so to plan ahead in case of future needs. Other premium features gaining in popularity include: dual showerhead (e.g. rain showerhead), soaking tub, one-piece dual flush toilets, vessel sinks (though 63% went with undermount sinks) and custom/semi-custom built-in vanities. For those who were not able to enlarge or reconfigure the bathroom, 34% eliminated the bathtub.
Neutral colors in the bathroom are still the most popular. The top pick for walls is gray (32%) followed by white (21%). For cabinets the top choice is white (34%), with wood (32%) a close second. For floors: gray (29%), white (16%), beige (16%) and wood-like (14%). The majority of the projects will install tile on their shower walls and vanity backsplash (88%). Sixty six percent will use tiles on their bathroom walls, typically in a classic brick pattern.
Matte nickel and polished chrome are the most specified hardware. 58% are using the same metal throughout, and the rest are using mixed metals.
Considering that the bathroom is where we start and end our day, creating a spa-like bathroom remodeling design will be showing you love for years to come!
Happy Master Bathroom remodeling!
