Portland, Ore. (PRWEB) February 14, 2008
ReliableRemodeler.com, a trusted home improvement resource for homeowners looking for local, quality contractors, announces the results of their latest homeowner survey on trends in bathroom remodeling, http://www.reliableremodeler.com/about_us/media_center.asp. Homeowners were most interested in remodeling the space they already had, choosing to change and replace major features instead of adding a new bathroom.
When asked what type of bathroom remodeling project they would like to start, sixty-eight percent of homeowners said they would like to remodel their existing bathroom. Twenty-two percent of homeowners were interested in expanding their existing space, while only ten percent of homeowners were interested in adding a brand new bathroom to their home.
Installing a new bathtub or shower was the most popular project for homeowners, with 30 percent answering that they want to change this aspect of their bathroom. New countertops and flooring were the second and third most popular responses with 23 percent and 21 percent of homeowners.
"Homeowners are leaning towards making 'smart remodeling' choices when investing in their home," said Eric Doebele. "Updating an existing bathroom may be a more conservative choice than adding a brand new one, but it still brings a high return on investment, which is what homeowners are looking for."
Bathroom remodels are consistently popular with homeowners, twenty-four percent of respondents were currently in the midst of a bathroom remodel, and 10 percent had done one within the past year. Overall, forty-seven percent of homeowners had done a bathroom remodel within the past 10 years.
