The home renovation and design platform Houzz has published its Houzz study of bathroom trends in the United States in 2022. The survey of more than 2,500 respondents found that national median spend on master bath projects increased nearly 13% to $9,000, while higher budget projects saw a jump 17% to $35,000 or more for homeowners.

“Bathrooms have always been a room for renovation, and we’re seeing homeowners, driven by both aesthetic desires and functional necessities, doubling down on their investment in these private sanctuaries,” says Marine Sargsyan, economist at Houzz. “While the cost of products and materials has increased due to inflation and supply chain disruptions, renovation activity remains strong, supported by high property equity and homeowners’ desire to stay put given the limited supply of accommodation.”
