Everyone always wants to know how much a bathroom remodel costs. Here are some estimates depending on how upgraded you want your bathroom to be. It will also depend on whether or not walls need to be moved and/or whether or not plumbing needs to be added or moved.
Estimating Bathroom Remodel Costs
Determining your budget could be tricky when planning your renovation. A large factor in determining cost will be the size of your bathroom, ranging from small to medium or master bathroom size. The fixtures you will need to fit in your bathroom will range in price depending on their size. The list of fixtures involved in remodeling a bathroom can include elements like faucets and fixtures, floor plan changes (like converting a half bath to full bath), new showers or baths, new flooring, countertops, cabinets and lighting. This long list of comes with a lot of different prices and options to compare before choosing what to buy for your bath remodel.
Here is a chart with some of the many options involved in a bathroom remodel, including the least expensive (small) to most expensive (master) costs for each:
|Option||Low Range||Mid Range||High Range|
|Install bathtub||$400 – $1,500||$2,600 – $4,100||$6,000 – $8,000|
|Install cabinets||$1,200 – $3,500||$4,700 – $7,000||$8,000 – $13,000|
|Install countertops||$900 – $2,000||$2,800 – $4,100||$5,000 – $6,500|
|Install flooring||$800 – $2,000||$2,500 – $3,600||$5,000 – $7,000|
|Install lighting fixture||$120 – $900||$1,100 – $1,700||$2,500 – $4,000|
|Install shower||$450 – $2,000||$3,000 – $4,800||$6,000 – $10,000|
|Install sink||$190 – $900||$1,400 – $2,300||$3,500 – $6,500|
|Install toilet||$130 – $250||$340 – $480||$550 – $780|
Remember: you don’t have to include all of these items in your bathroom remodel, unless you’re building a whole new bathroom from scratch. You always have the option to add some pieces–sink, toilet and lighting fixtures–after you’ve done the bigger projects to spread out costs. Also consider that some of these projects–bathtub installation/remodel, shower installation or cabinet installation–have smaller, cheaper alternatives. For example, you can refinish cabinets to make them look brand new and flow with the new bathroom for less money. There is also the option of replacing faucets and other plumbing fixtures, which costs less than replacing bathtubs and showers.
For those who want a similar style from room to room, it’s worth considering the cost of kitchen cabinets ahead of time. If you plan to have your kitchen remodeled after you tackle the bathroom, consider the cost of your bathroom cabinets and fixtures on a larger scale. This will give you a more detailed estimate of your kitchen remodel cost.
