Every year, bathrooms rank at the top as the room that most homeowners want to renovate. And who can blame them? It is a room that sees people all the time. Whether you want to relax in a hot bubble bath or have the proper accommodations for guests, you want to make sure your restroom is up to your standards. Besides appliances and other gadgets, the most common question that we have about bathroom remodels is how much does it cost. And in all honesty, it really just depends. Instead of giving you the exact cost, we go into further detail about what affects the pricing. Keep scrolling to learn more.
Things to Remember When Remodeling Your Bathroom
Before we can discuss the cost of a bathroom remodel, there are some things you need to remember and to review. First and foremost, you need to make a list of what all you want done in the room.
- Do you want new floors?
- Do you want a new vanity?
- Do you want to switch up the sinks and bathtub?
- Do you want to add towel racks, handlebars and other additional features?
- What is your budget?
- What is your color scheme? Or what is the overall theme?
- How much time do you have to remodel the bathroom?
There are even more questions you can answer, but the ones above are the basic ones that will help you determine a budget, your time and what contractor you are going to hire. While many homeowners do remodel a bathroom on their own, it does take additional time and effort (and watching YouTube videos) to get the job done. A job that typically will take less than a week for a home service company to finish can take a DIY homeowner two or more weeks. Also remember, that not only will you be buying the supplies but the equipment as well. That is why we recommend working with a contractor that already has the equipment and the knowledge to get it all down in an efficient amount of time.
The Average Cost By Bath Size
Not all restroom renovations cost the same. Instead, the size of the room greatly determines the overall budget. On average, a bathroom remodel cost about $6,000-$8,000. So if you want to renovate this room, make sure to have some cash saved up. However, this is not the cost for all bathrooms. It all just depends on not only what you want to do but the size as well. Small restrooms or powder rooms can range from $3,000-$6,000. Guest bathrooms can range from $6,000 to $13,000. And the master bathroom can go $10,000 and up. But again, it is all relative, and you should always talk with your contractor about what everything will cost. If you are shopping around for contractors, ask for a thorough breakdown so you can compare equally.
Features That Can Affect the Cost
Those heated floors that you wanted or those additional towel racks that you wanted installed, does not come with a simple remodel. Instead, these additional features increase your overall total. Depending on the contractor you hired, these costs can fluctuate. If you know you can do some of the simple tasks like replacing door handles or adding towel racks, then do that after the remodel. Always let a professional do the more difficult and tedious tasks.
