Homeowners are expanding and upgrading their bathrooms, with 1 in 5 opting for more space and more luxurious design features, according to the 2023 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Study. Roughly 3 in 5 bathrooms were larger than 100 square feet thanks to renovations that took space from closets, bedrooms, or hallways, Realtor.com reports. 

Median spending on primary bathroom remodels increased to $13,500 in 2023 from $9,000 last year, reaching an approximate total of $25,000 for bathrooms exceeding 100 square feet. Larger showers are in high demand, with rainfall showerheads, thermostatic mixers, and accessibility features gaining traction among today’s homeowners.

Nearly two-thirds of homeowners are seeking larger showers. The most popular styles are low curb, alcove, curbless, and corner showers. The low and curbless showers may make these spaces more accessible for aging homeowners and those who use a wheelchair or walker or are worried about slipping.

If they’re spending all that money on a new shower, folks are inclined to deck them out. Rainfall showerheads were among the most popular showerheads, followed by dual showers (for more of a spa experience), body sprayers, and thermostatic mixers, the latter of which ensures the perfect water temperature.

About a third also selected nonslip floors to be installed outside of the shower. Other popular flooring was waterproof and radiant heating.
