Top Remodel Project for 2018
Traditionally the most popular part of the house for remodeling is the kitchen, but so far 2018 is shaping up to be the year of the bathroom. In the category “major remodels” nearly 25% of homeowners report they will remodel their bathrooms while kitchen fix-ups are down to 18 percent.
Custom walk-in showers are replacing tubs, and many homeowners are looking for a “spa” feel for their bathrooms.
What About Bathroom Flooring?
Wood is the number one look for flooring, even in bathrooms but because you’re going to have a lot of water, you’ll want to choose carefully. Some laminates work well as do many vinyl planks that resemble wood.
