According to HomeAdvisors most recent True Cost Survey, bathroom remodels continue to be more popular than kitchen remodels, with almost 25 percent of homeowners planning for a bathroom renovation over the 15 percent planning for a kitchen makeover. Interestingly, the survey results show that millennials are twice as likely as baby boomers to complete a bathroom remodel. Though more millennials are likely to remodel their bathrooms, they won’t spend as much as older generations due to their tighter budget restraints. So, what do millennials want in their bathrooms?
The first digital generation to be owning and improving their homes, millennials are accustomed to controlling things like appliances and thermostats from smartphone apps. It’s no surprise they want to do the same with their bathroom showers and lighting. They’re also interested in the latest faucet technology and high-tech shower heads.
Minimalist design speaks to millennial homeowners’ love of functionality and desire for keeping a clutter-free home. And because many millennials don’t have a lot of extra money to burn, a clean, a minimalist bathroom design can be more affordable to achieve than a richer, more complicated design. Millennials look to simplify the space while getting more out of it. Design elements that can help to create a sleek and simple look that also boost functionality include floating vanities and open shelving (check out our vanity top brackets and shelving brackets!), neutral colors, and minimal accessories that are highly functional, yet beautiful.
Eco-conscious as well as frugal, millennials will seek out items made from recycled or reclaimed materials, install energy-saving point-of-use water heaters, and water-efficient showerheads and faucets.
