What does it cost to renovate a bathroom?
Costs vary considerably depending upon whether you’re doing cosmetic upgrades or implementing a complete gut job.
A cosmetic approach generally will cost in the few hundred to few thousand dollar range while a complete gut (one that includes new mechanicals, fixtures, drywall, cabinets, countertops, tile flooring) will be considerably more.
For a standard 3-piece bathroom (tub/shower, toilet, vanity), typically it should not be unexpected to be in the 14,000 to 16,000 dollar range.
In a master suite, (2 sinks, toilet, tub, separate tub/shower), it would not be uncommon to spend anywhere between 25,000 and 30,000.
These costs reflect projects we have completed and are indicative of the selections our client has chosen. The selection of the finishes is the predominant factor in the overall cost of any remodel.
Selections can include a free-standing tub or a drop-in tub with tiled deck and apron, a tiled shower with frameless glass doors, double sinks with granite countertops, upgraded electrical and venting as well as in-floor heat.
When preparing your budget, remember to consider the level of finishes you as the client, want to see implemented so that you have a clearer picture as to the overall cost of your renovation.
