Bathroom Renovation Trends: Floored by Floors

A recent Houzz.com study found that homeowners are focusing on their master suite as a whole, with nearly half of master bathroom projects accompanied by master bedroom renovations (46 percent). Master bathrooms command the second highest median spend in home remodels, behind kitchens, at $7,000. Median spend for a major renovation of a large master bath jumps to $16,000. Meanwhile, master bedroom renovations saw a 33 percent increase in median spend last year from $1,500 to $2,000 (in 2016 and 2017, respectively).

A surprising one in ten master bathrooms is the same size or larger than the master bedroom (11 percent). The study also shows premium features in master bathrooms are on the rise; dual showers, one-piece toilets, vessel sinks and built-in vanities show significant increases in demand over the past three years.
