Speaking of the toilet, over 80 percent of remodelers are selecting high-efficiency toilets. And more than a quarter of young homeowners are favoring wall-mounted options. Not just in North Dallas but across Texas.
Double sinks are also on the rise apparently, and shower curtains are becoming obsolete; in fact, seven out of 10 new bathrooms have a glass-enclosed area to them. Skylights are also becoming popular.
Over 7,400 people were interviewed and the criteria was needing a bath remodeled. It seems high-end is preferred and shower curtains are on the way out. We spoke with Pete of A1 Soapstone at www.dallassoapstone.com, a local bathroom remodeling contractor, who said that he has seen an increase in high-end remodels even in smaller and lower-priced homes. The moral? What recession?
