Popular Bathroom Upgrades For 2015

There are many reasons homeowner’s decide to upgrade their master bathroom. The most popular reasons are to install new features and fixtures, to make the space more functional, and to increase the value of their home.

A recent survey by the website Houzz found some interesting trends in the choices homeowners are making when remodeling their bathrooms.More than half of homeowners report that they are planning a full remodel (58%) over smaller upgrades. Here are some other trends they reported.

Fewer Tubs in the Master Bathroom

Surprisingly, 4 out of 10 homeowners reported that they were skipping a tub in the master bath. This trend is strongest among those under 45.

Freestanding Tubs

When homeowners do choose to install a new bathtub, they prefer freestanding models over built-in tubs. Even Jacuzzi has responded to this trend by offering a freestanding model.

Walk-in Showers

The trend in showers is towards larger, open stalls with frameless glass doors that emphasize ease of access and a spa like experience. LED lighting in showers (even in the shower head itself) is another popular trend.

Shower Fixtures

Homeowners under 45 are choosing multiple and rain showerheads, while those over 55 prefer hand showers and sliding shower heads.
