A recent survey conducted by Reliable Remodeler, a home improvement contractor matching service in Portland, Ore., found that homeowners are interested in remodeling their existing bathroom spaces, choosing to change and replace major features instead of adding a new bathroom. About 22% of the owners wanted to expand their existing bathrooms, and just 10% were interested in adding a brand new bathroom to their home.

“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,” says Reliable Remodeler founder Eric Doebele.

Bathroom remodels are consistently popular with homeowners, 24% of respondents were currently in the middle of a bathroom remodel, and 10% had done one within the past year. Overall, 47% of homeowners had done a bathroom remodel within the past 10 years.
