Kitchens and Bathrooms Remain Top Remodeling Jobs

A recent survey released by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)  shows common remodeling projects have increased, compared to a similar survey  from 2010.

Remodelers report that kitchen and bathroom projects remain the most popular  remodeling jobs with home owners increasingly upgrading both rooms and making  major repairs as they decide to stay in their current homes longer. Nearly 50  percent of remodelers report seeing an increase in the number of home owners  who undertake remodels to avoid moving compared to the 2010 findings.

Both kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects were up 17 percent from two  years ago, with bathroom remodels cited as a common job by 78 percent of  remodelers and kitchen remodels at 69 percent. Since 2009, bathrooms and  kitchens have switched places in popularity, with bathroom remodels moving into  the top spot as the most common type of remodeling project.

In addition to kitchens and baths, other popular remodeling categories  included window/door replacements (44 percent), whole house remodels (35  percent), room additions (33 percent) and handyman services (31 percent).
“Home owners are repurposing spaces and making more efficient use of their  home’s square footage,” said George Moore, Jr., NAHB Remodelers Chairman said.  “Whether it be young families or couples aging in their homes, people want to  let their house adapt with their needs as they change over time.”
