How much time do you spend in the bathroom? This question arose because our team of technicians at Charlotte Resurfacing spend so much of their time in bathrooms transforming tired old finishes on countertops, sinks, tubs and showers. The answer to this question was rather surprising. A bathroom trends study conducted this year by U.S. Houzz reports that nearly two-thirds of the respondents of their survey spent 30-60 minutes per day in their bathroom. It’s no wonder bathrooms are the number two room remodeled in US homes, second only to kitchens.
When we think about our homes and the functionality of each room, many think about where we eat, sleep and spend time with our families and friends. While spending time with our loved ones is important, and sleep takes up to 8 hours per day if we’re so fortunate, but it is the bathroom where most of us begin and finish each and every day. The bathroom for many is a place of refuge. It’s a place to invigorate and groom ourselves in preparation for our day, and then a room to relax and wash away the stresses of our day upon completion.
Bathrooms today often resemble luxury hotels or pampering day spas. This is one reason people are spending more and more time in their bathroom. The average person now spends over a year and a half of their lifetime in the bathroom.
