It’s fair to say that the bathroom is one of the most used rooms in the home and arguably one of the most important. The average person spends over two years of their life in this room, making having enough of them for your home and its occupants and/or guests, key to your home’s functionality. If you find yourself having to “wait your turn” or limiting your time in your home’s bathrooms, it may be time to add one, or more, onto your home. Can a bathroom addition make all the difference in your home?
How many bathrooms does the average household have?
If you are trying to determine if a bathroom addition can make a difference in your home, it is likely because you find yourself wishing you had more, or some in more convenient locations. Often times people opt to add bathrooms to basements, create an en suite to the primary bedroom, add one to a floor of the home that doesn’t have one, or just simply know that there are not enough in the home. If you are questioning if you have enough bathrooms in your home, you may be curious as to how many bathrooms the average household has.
According the United States Census Bureau, the majority of homes built in 2021 had three or more bathrooms; however, that doesn’t really tell us a lot. How many occupants were in the home? How large was the home? etc. The general rule, in the home building industry, is for homes to have at least two bathrooms for every three bedrooms. Larger and more upscale homes tend to have more bathrooms per person than smaller or more modest residences.

When it comes to your home, it is often hard to find one that is already built and is perfect for you and your family. How many bathrooms the home has can play a major factor into how much you love your home and whether it is perfect for you or not. The good news is, if the bathroom situation isn’t what you want it to be, you can do something about it. Bathroom additions are one of the most beneficial home renovation projects you can do for your home.
