Master Bathroom Must Haves

According to the 2015 Houzz Bathroom Trends Studysuper sized master showers reign. Many of the more than 3,000 home owners recently surveyed say they plan to upgrade their master showers and increase its size.

Northeast home owners were found to be planning the most upgrades. But the survey found many non-master full baths, especially in the West, are also getting supersized shower stalls.

Thirty percent of those surveyed by Houzz who say they have plans to upgrade their master shower to make it 50 percent or more larger than its current size; 19 percent plan to make it between 25 percent to 50 percent larger.
