Bathroom Upgrades Edge Out Kitchen Renovations in Popularity

If you’re among those who get excited about renovating your bathroom but feel less enthusiastic about pouring money and energy into a kitchen upgrade, you’re not alone.

Bathrooms remodels have jumped to the top of home renovators’ to-do lists, according to a National Association of Homebuilder’s (NAHB) survey that asked builders, “What were the most common remodeling jobs for your company in 2017?”


Homeowners find a big payoff both financially and emotionally when they remodel a bathroom, according to the 2017 Remodeling Impact Report by the National Association of REALTORS®.


More than half (52%) said the most important result of a bathroom renovation was better functionality and livability, and 71 percent said they have an increased sense of enjoyment when they’re at home.


And when it’s time to sell a home, homeowners recoup about half of the project costs for new bathrooms and bathroom renovations.
