Bathroom’s Most Wanted

Linen closets are the most-desired feature in a master bathroom for homebuyers, according to new survey data from the National Association of Home Builders.

Approximately 78 percent of homebuyer respondents in the NAHB’s 2019 What Home Buyers Really Want report say that a linen closet in the master bathroom is desirable or an essential feature. Having "both a shower stall and tub in the master bath," and having a double vanity were both home features that at least 70 percent of survey respondents said were desirable or a must-have. These two features each garnered 32 percent "must-have" scores, the highest in the study.
