Budgeting For Your Bathroom Remodeling Project

Bathroom remodeling estimates that you are offered by reputable renovation contractors often depend on the number of “big ticket” options that you specify. If you want to remodel your bathroom without breaking the bank there are ways and means of doing so, but to do it you need to know what costs what.

Things to consider in the planning stage:

Basic bathroom remodeling includes the replacement of the tub and toilet as well as a complete tile surround and an integrated solid surface sink. It also includes a medicine cabinet, ceramic floor tile and vinyl wallpaper above the wall tile surround.

Anything above the basic is considered “upscale” and can include moving the location of fixtures, increasing the size of the room, using high-end fixtures including a bidet, natural stone countertop, two sinks, lighting and other amenities.

It is easy to see why bathroom remodeling estimates vary greatly; perhaps a basic bathroom will come in at around $10,000 while an upscale remodeling project can cost in excess of $25,000. This is why it is very important that you decide what you want changing and what you are happy to live with.

  • Fixtures: A major component of a bathroom remodeling project is moving the physical location of the fixtures. If you can maintain the same room layout you can eliminate the extra cost associated with plumbing. The cost of the fixtures varies considerably; there is a considerable difference in cost between a glass vessel sink for example and a no-frills porcelain sink.
  • Tiles: Once again, the cost of tiling varies considerably. With tile, you are not only faced with the cost of the tile, there is the added cost of installation labor. Many bathroom remodeling estimates assume full height tiling in the shower and tub area, this cost can be mitigated by installing half height tiles capped with bull nose molding. This can look great when coupled with a cool paint color.

To get the “most bang for your buck,” plan carefully, be creative and work with a remodeling contractor that wants to ensure you get the bathroom you want at a cost that you can afford.
