2019 Houzz Master Bathroom Trends Released
Houzz recently released its 2019 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Study that surveyed 1,360 U.S. homeowners about recent or planned master bathroom renovations. The study found that the national median amount spent on a remodel increased from $7,000 in 2017 to $8,000 in 2018, and that major remodels including shower upgrades were five times more expensive. Of those surveyed, 77% had upgraded or planned to remodel vanity cabinets while 31% were adding new cabinets. Outdated style and lack of storage was cited by 59% and 37%, respectively, as the reasons for remodeling.
During the remodel, 9 out of 10 homeowners changed the style of their bathroom. Transitional and modern styles gained traction, while contemporary, traditional and farmhouse all declined. After a lull for several years, white was the color of choice for vanity cabinets at 34%, with wood at 29% and gray at 16%. Shaker remained the preferred door style at 47%, while raised and flat panel scored 25% and 23% respectively. Double sink vanities increased in popularity in 2019 to 69% compared to 66% in 2018.
