What Women and Men Want in a Bathroom

A Bathroom Remodel Specialists Speaks About the Remodeling Preferences of Both Sexes

Vickrey Remodeling Specialist is a contractor, dealing with bathroom remodel on a daily basis, and we have learned a lot about the tastes of men and women when it comes to upgrading a restroom or bathroom space. Today, we have decided to share some of our knowledge on the topic, and make a short list with the most wanted remodels from both the male and female part of the humanity.

A man wants:

  • Rich and dark colors for the tiles. Wooden or wood imitating shelves, cabinets, racks, and bathroom storage corners
  • Clean straight lines
  • Stone tiling
  • TV on a swing arm
  • Higher standing vanity
  • Steam shower
  • Magazine rack
  • Free space for 5 to 10 personal care products

A woman wants:

  • Light colored or painted cabinets and shelves
  • Ornaments and decorative elements
  • Ceramic tiles in softer shades
  • Brighter lighting
  • Dry vanity with a seater at the mirror
  • Soaking tub with jets
  • Closet for storage of all 500 personal care products and towels they have

Regarding the size and space of a bathroom, however, men and women have the same opinion. 85% of couples want to change the overall layout of their bathroom. 45% of them will be more than happy to have a larger bathroom, especially if we are talking about the one, attached to the master bedroom. 37% of men and women prefer showers instead of tubs, and admit that they want a larger one. Suddenly it turns out that standard shower cabins are regarded as quite uncomfortable and many families would rather not install them in their bathrooms, except the cases when there is not enough space for an alternative solution.
