Share |

Bathrooms overtook kitchens as the most popular remodeling project, according to a new survey released by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

"Small-scale renovations are slowly becoming just as popular as large-scale projects, as seen with bathroom remodeling becoming more common than kitchens," said 2018 NAHB Remodelers Chair Joanne Theunissen, CPG, CGR, a remodeler from Mt. Pleasant, Mich. "Home owners are finding cost-effective and shorter timeframe upgrades can also add comfort and value to their homes."

In the survey, remodelers reported the most common projects in 2017:  

  • 81 percent bathroom remodeling
  • 78 percent kitchen remodeling
  • 49 percent whole house remodeling
  • 37 percent room additions

In 2017, Houzz reported that neutrals remain the core focus for homeowners who want to highlight statement pieces in the master bath.
