According to the 2016 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Study, more than four in five renovating homeowners are replacing major bathroom features such as showers, flooring, countertops and sinks during master bathroom upgrades.
High-tech features are on the rise in updated master bathrooms, according to the 2016 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Study.
Of the 2,100 U.S. homeowners who are in the midst of, are planning or recently completed a bathroom project surveyed, 20 percent updated to high-tech toilets, including toilets with self-cleaning functions, motion-activated seats and built-in nightlights (43, 28 and 18 percent, respectively).
Twelve percent of homeowners would like or have high-tech bathtubs, featuring built-in lighting (64 percent), heated backrests (47 percent) and scented mist dispensers (7 percent). Among the 9 percent who will or have updated to high-tech showers, 60 percent include mood lighting, 31 percent digital controls and 11 percent build-in sound as common features.
Most homeowners are hiring professionals to help with their bathroom projects — 90 percent in 2016 vs. 78 percent in 2015. Over half of renovating homeowners enlisting the help of a professional hire a general contractor (55 percent) and a fifth a bathroom remodeler (19 percent).
