Costs of Construction – Bathrooms
$35,000 – $100,000+
Up next in our Costs of Construction series: bathroom renovations! If you read our kitchen costs blog, you’ll know the price of remodeling varies widely from project to project, and bathroom remodels are no exception. What it really comes down to is, how exactly do you envision your bathroom renovation? Imagine a standard 5’ x 8’ bathroom: single vanity, toilet, and acrylic tub/shower insert. If you have a busy family life, this room may be a high traffic area in which you are content with replacing each of these pieces just as they are: a new stocked vanity cabinet with a built-in sink and countertop, standard porcelain tile flooring, an updated toilet, and a new tub/shower unit. Assume the plumbing and electrical systems are current. You will achieve a fresh, updated look while likely falling on the lower end of the estimate range of a full bath.
Now, imagine you have the same space but with a vision for it to become your dream spa-like oasis: custom cabinetry and high-end plumbing fixtures, marble flooring, an elongated toilet with a bidet seat, and a curbless custom tile shower with a steam feature and custom glass door. Perhaps your plumbing systems are out of date as well and need to be brought up to today’s code. Despite the existing footprint being the same in both instances, this second scenario would involve a complete overhaul of your space; a remodel quite a bit more intensive than the previous example. Let’s dive deeper into the typical types of bathroom renovations, what they entail, and how exactly the cost of a bathroom remodel is determined.
