According to the 2015 Houzz Bathroom Trends Study, super 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.
But the master shower isn’t the only driver to bathroom remodels. The Houzz survey found respondents rated the following functional aspects as important factors in their bathroom remodels:
Easy to clean: 55%
Easy to store and find: 53%
Good lighting: 47%
Two-person compatible: 46%
Easy to get ready in: 36%
Helps me relax: 34%
What’s more, the design of the space is also important. Survey respondents identified the following top design aspects of a master bathroom:
Stylish and beautiful: 83%
Spa-like atmosphere: 41%
Reflects who I am: 38%
Filled with natural light: 34%
Makes a statement: 23%
Other top characteristics identified by survey respondents for master bathroom remodels are:
Ceramic tile as the most popular flooring choice.
Painted walls, while wallpaper is only used in 3 percent of remodels.
Recessed lighting and wall sconces as the most popular lighting choices.
Baby boomers are more likely to install grab bars and curbless showers in their master bathroom remodels. But non-slide floors, hand-held shower heads, shower seats or tub seats, and thermostatic mixers are growing in popularity among all generations.
Survey respondents also identified the following specialty features as the most important in luxury master bathroom remodels:
Rain shower head
Tub for two
Spa jets in tubs
Radiant heat flooring
Shower for two
