Flooring, Walls and Showers Are Popular Upgrades

Given the abundant surface area of walls and flooring in a bathroom and their potential impact on the design, it’s no surprise that the majority of remodeling homeowners tackle these two large areas (83% each) in their projects.

Many remodeling homeowners also upgrade their faucets (87%), lighting fixtures (80%), countertops (79%), sinks (76%) and vanity cabinets (74%).

Ceramic and Porcelain Tile Are Popular Inside Showers

Among the 83% of renovating homeowners who upgrade showers as part of their master bathroom remodel, ceramic or porcelain remains the favorite material for both shower floors (56%) and shower walls (70%).

Marble is the second-most-popular material choice for upgraded shower floors (13%) and walls (15%). However, this material lost ground for shower flooring, down five percentage points from 2019. Granite and quartzite, as well as engineered quartz, rose in popularity for shower walls this year.
