So revitalize these rooms, whether they need a few changes or a complete overhaul.

Popular Bathroom Improvements

According to the info graphic, the average bathroom remodel size was between 400 and 800 square feet. The most popular improvements to the bathroom included:

  • Installing a shower: Consider features like temperature controls and adjustable shower head settings.
