Bathroom Remodels: Here’s What’s HOT!

Need some inspiration for your bathroom remodel? Take a look at this year’s hottest projects:

Soaking Tubs and Supersized Showers

Homeowners are ditching jetted tubs for freestanding soaking tubs and walk-in shower stalls. In fact, a number of homeowners are installing bigger, spa-like showers and getting rid of their master bathtubs altogether. According to HomeAdvisor’s True Cost Guide, most homeowners spend around $3,140 to install new shower.

Flooring Upgrades

When it comes to bathroom flooring, most homeowners are installing engineered wood; laminate; or ceramic, stone or vinyl tile. (Large-format tiles and options resembling hardwoods are most popular.) And many homeowners are installing radiant heat underneath new flooring as well. On average, homeowners pay about $3,008 to install new flooring, according to HomeAdvisor’s True Cost Guide, and about $3,311 to install radiant heat.

Streamlined Sinks

Homeowners are taking a fresh look at bathroom sinks. Undermount sinks are increasingly favored over vessel sinks. However, HomeAdvisor pros report that vessel, pedestal and drop-in sinks remain popular choices. According to HomeAdvisor’s True Cost Guide, homeowners pay an average of $570 to install a new sink.

Modernized Cabinets and Countertops

Homeowners are seeking maximum storage in minimalist design — opting for floating vanities, built-in storage cabinets and open shelving. Wood finishes and European-style cabinetry are most popular when it comes to storage options. And granite, quartz and solid surface are the most popular countertop materials. Homeowners spend an average of $4,633 to install new cabinets and $2,864 to update countertops, according to HomeAdvisor’s True Cost Guide.
