Every year the National Association of Home Builders compiles a list of the 10 most commonly done type of home remodeling or upgrade projects.
The most current year for which I have data is 2012 (which seems odd) and I will say I’m quite surprised by how many times we collectively do the #1 most common project.
The fact that a bathroom remodel is the most popular home remodel project is not what surprises me, it’s the 78%.
That is more than 3 out of every 4 projects and is almost 4 out of every 5.
I’m now going to take a few guesses as to why this is the case:
- More than any other room in the house, the bathroom is where we experience the greatest privacy and where we go relax by ourselves in the shower or tub.
- Kitchen remodel projects is the #2 choice and as they’re much more expensive, we collectively tend to do them much less often.
- As our friends and neighbors show us their new nicely remodeled bathroom, it creates a desire on our part to do own own (the I want what she’s having effect).
