Bathrooms at Top of List for 2012 Remodeling Projects

According to a recent survey released by the National Association of Home Builders, since 2001, bathroom and kitchen remodels have remained the two most common types of projects.  With 78 percent of survey respondents cited bathroom remodeling as one of the most common jobs.

The top two reasons for remodeling are the need to repair or replace old or outdated components and the desire for better and newer amenities. More than 50 percent of remodelers said that these two reasons have become more common during the past two years.

Experts agree that a nice, newly remodeled bathroom not only adds value to your house, but also can have a potential ROI of about 80% or higher, even in the current economy, depending on where you live.

If that isn’t enough to motivate you to turn your bathroom into a sanctuary, consider this, the average person spends a total of 30 minutes a day in the bathroom.  While that may not seem like a significant amount of time, a person who lives to 75 will spend 1,095,000 minutes, or 18,225 hours, or 760.5 days, or approximately 2 year 1 month in the bathroom!

Not sure where to start?  One of the most common bathroom design challenges is insufficient storage. Whether your bathroom is large or small Holiday Kitchenshas the perfect custom cabinetry to turn it into an elegant and functional space.
