The Cost of a Bathroom Remodel
The bathroom is one of the most essential rooms in the house, and a beautiful bath is a great incentive when you’re trying to sell. Whether you’ve merely changed tastes or your bathroom is stuck in the 1970s, it may be time for a remodel. But what’s the cost? The short answer is: it depends. Here are some of the factors that determine the cost of a bathroom remodel.
How large is your bathroom? A small to medium-sized bathroom could cost as little as $3,000, depending on the features you’re upgrading. A full remodel for a large or master bath can easily cost over $10,000. The cost of a remodel encompasses both the materials and the price of installation, all which can vary.
One factor that will cause a significant swing in cost is the type of material you choose. If you want to update the counters, for example, there is a big cost differential between granite and marble. Likewise, if you’re changing cabinets, custom hardwood cabinets will have a higher sticker price than prefabricated cabinets.
The next question you should ask yourself is which fixtures you would like to update. If you have a smaller budget, you could simply upgrade cabinet hardware and the sink and bath faucets—install a new showerhead while you’re at it. You could also think about updating the lighting fixtures. A change in lighting can create a whole new mood. If you want to do a full-scale remodel, you could replace the sink and tub, but obviously, the costs will escalate.
Electricity and Plumbing
Even if you have room in the budget, you shouldn’t wait until the middle of a remodel to find out there are problems with the plumbing or electricity. We recommend having separate professionals come out and check before you’re elbow-deep in a remodel. Unexpected problems in these areas can easily blow your budget if you’re unprepared.
