Americans Want More Bathrooms at Home

Americans Want More Bathrooms at Home

bathroom

The share of new homes started with three or more full bathrooms is on the rise. That also reflects builders’ focus on the higher-end, larger homes since the end of the Great Recession.

Twenty-seven percent of new single-family homes started in 2015 had three full bathrooms and 10 percent had four or more, Census Bureau data shows. Fifty-nine percent of homes had two full bathrooms and just 4 percent had one – or less.

The South Atlantic region of the U.S. has the largest share of new homes with three or more bathrooms at 42 percent. Other regions with the highest shares of three or more bathrooms in new-home starts included the Mountain region at 39 percent, Pacific region at 38 percent, and West South Central divisions at 38 percent. Meanwhile, the East North Central division had the lowest share of new homes with three or more bathrooms at 24 percent.

The following chart shows the regional breakdown of the percentage of new homes with three or more full bathrooms.
