Earlier this month our partners at Houzz released a summary of their annual homeowners study. This year they surveyed more than 1,300 homeowners who renovated or remodeled their master bathrooms. Do you remember the difference between renovation and remodeling? If not, please revisit this very popular blog post from 2018!
Here are a few key findings from the Houzz 2019 Bathroom Renovation Study:
Showers Reign Supreme: 83% of homeowners upgraded their master bathroom showers this year, and 54% of the time it was to increase the size of the shower space!
Spa-Like Oasis: An on-going design element that we've been delivering for over a decade is providing "spa-like" features and functions to master bathrooms. According to the study, this is represented by a focus on neutral tones along with white or wood vanities.
Freestanding, Flat-Bottom Tubs: Compared to their popularity in 2017, when freestanding, flat-bottom tubs were just 41% of replaced tubs, they've risen in 2019 to 50%! And we've seen many Illinois homeowners combined an increased shower space along with adding a freestanding soaking tub with more than one third of our major remodeling projects!
To learn even more from about what's happening with bathroom remodels, we are including the summary to this special study here! If the New Year means a new bathroom for your home, please contact our Diamond Bath team today to schedule your free, in-home design consultation!
It's a pretty common questions among home owners considering a professional bathroom remodeling project: How long will this take? Luckily, most of the homes we remodel these days have at least two full bathrooms, so it's rare that there is ever a situation where people are greatly inconvenienced while our team completes each project. Our only REAL challenge comes when a homeowner asks to remodel two bathrooms at the same time.
While the potential for inconvenience is greater with a dual bathroom remodeling project, as you'll see from the photo gallery below, the reward is even more significant. The Novickis family, in Wonder Lake, made such a request and are very pleased with the results our team delivered last month. The photos that show the tub are in a hallway bathroom and the open shower photos are within the master bathroom.
Look at these "After" photos carefully and you'll find some important details. For example, in the Master Bath:
