Houzz Inc., a platform for home remodeling and design, has released their 2023 U.S. Houzz Bathroom Trends Study. This report is comprised of nearly 2,000 homeowners who are amid, are planning or recently completed a bathroom renovation.
Here are the trends homeowners have been following this year:
Primary Suite Enlargements
Out of the participants, 22% enlarged primary bathrooms during their remodel. They tended to pull the extra space from closets, bedrooms and hallways (44%, 24% and 7%, respectively). Once renovations were complete, 59% of the bathrooms measured 100 square feet or more.
With more space, 61% of homeowners also increased their shower square footage, with 20% going significantly larger (more than 50% increase in size). The most common styles were low curb, alcove, curbless and corner showers (43%, 42%, 24% and 21%, respectively). Owners also incorporated premium features in their showers, including rainfall shower heads (54%), dual showers (20%), body sprayers (16%) and thermostatic mixers (14%).
The majority of homeowners surveyed (87%) chose sustainable options during their renovations. The most popular choices were LED lightbulbs, water-efficient fixtures, a timeless design, energy-efficient features and light dimmers (62%, 46%, 44%, 34% and 34%, respectively).

Universal design is continuing to be popular, with 66% of owners incorporating these special needs in their designs. This number is up from 54% in 2021.
