How People Upgrade Their Main Bathrooms, and How Much They Spend

Bathrooms are nearly the most popular room to renovate, just after kitchens. After all, these are important spaces where we spend a good amount of time — several hours a week, in fact.

The 2016 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Study, from a research team led by Nino Sitchinava, Houzz’s principal economist, reveals that homeowners renovating their bathrooms are craving stylish, beautiful spaces, with luxurious finishes and big showers. It also found that fewer than half of homeowners who own bathtubs and renovated their master bathroom actually use their tubs.

The study surveyed more than 2,100 Houzz users in the U.S. who own homes and are in the midst of a bathroom project, have recently completed one, or are planning one for 2016. Read on for more insights about how homeowners are upgrading these private spaces.
