Remodeling your bathroom can cost anywhere from $2,600 to $20,000+. (Click here to see the average bathroom remodel costs.) Why such a big range? Because, there are so many options when it comes to flooring, fixtures, layout, labor, etc. I’m not here to tell you that you shouldn’t remodel your bathroom. I’m just here to tell you what to be aware of you so you can stick within your budget and still get that gorgeous bathroom we all love!
Average Costs: Thanks to a Realtor.com article (see full article here), here’s the breakdown of bathroom amenity costs:
- Cabinets: $4,700 – $7,000
- Shower: $3,000 – $4,800
- Countertops: $2,800 – $4,100
- Bathtub: $2,600 – $4,100
- Flooring: $2,500 – $3,600
- Lighting: $1,100 – $1,700
- Toilet: $340 – $480
Cutting Costs: Decide ahead of time what you want to spend money on and what you don’t. Do you want that top-notch bathtub you’ve been admiring in all our social media posts? Go for it! But maybe cut costs on the lighting or cabinets. Instead of getting brand new cabinets installed, maybe just paint the ones you have. Just a hint: Paint is way cheaper than brand new cabinets.
Keeping the layout of your bathroom the same with save you a TON of money! Having to redo plumbing by moving the toilet and shower and bathtub equal more time, labor and money!
Marble counters may not be the most cost effective, but granite can look just as beautiful and cost way less! Looking into each aspect like this can help you cut costs. Don’t pick the first contractor you meet, or the first bathtub you see. Be willing to take a little time to shop around and find the best deal. Keep in mind though, don’t be so cheap that you get a cheap job that won’t give you any return on your investment.
