Planning for a bathroom remodel: how much does it cost?


Bathroom remodeling costs

Wondering about the planning and execution process for remodeling your main bathroom? Whether you want to update the look, increase resale value, add functionality, amenities and storage or a combination of all or some of these, costs will always be relative and will depend on a variety of factors. Some of these factors include: where you live, how old your home is and what kind of renovations have already been done. Features such as tile, counter tops, cabinetry, shelves and custom finishes all come in different price ranges that will also affect your budget.

When deciding which level of remodeling is right for you, this Houzz article laid out three different price ranges to look at. The ranges are, in other words, “good, better and best.”

  1. The Basic Bathroom Remodel: Often runs from $3,000 (DIY) to $12,000
  2. Mid- to Upper-Range Bathroom Remodel: $10,000 to $35,000
  3. The Deluxe Bathroom Remodel: $30,000 to $100,000-plus

For more details on cost ranges, common materials and finishes for each range, take a look at this article via Houzz.

Houzz also laid out the National Kitchen and Bath Association‘s cost breakdown to use as a budgeting guide:

Budget breakdown: Once you establish your budget and start hunting for materials, consider the National Kitchen and Bath Association’s cost breakdown as a guide:

  • Design fees: 4 percent
  • Installation: 20 percent
  • Fixtures: 15 percent
  • Cabinetry and hardware: 16 percent
  • Countertops: 7 percent
  • Lighting and ventilation: 5 percent
  • Flooring: 9 percent
  • Doors and windows: 4 percent
  • Walls and ceilings: 5 percent
  • Faucets and plumbing: 14 percent
  • Other: 1 percent

Of course, it’s up to you where to spend and where to splurge, but this breakdown is a good starting point. Plus, remember to reserve an additional 10 to 20 percent for unforeseen costs that might come up during construction.
