Remodeling your bathroom is one of the best ways to add value to your home quickly. It’s no surprise then that bathroom renovations are extremely popular. Unfortunately, it can also be extremely difficult to pin down a specific price point without the help of a professional remodeling company there with you. The size of the bathroom, state of the fixtures, and how much you want to change will all affect the price.
Kaminskiy offers an in-home design consultation so that you can see how much the process as a whole will cost you. We also make sure that you’re there throughout the whole process. Remodeling your bathroom should be something you’re excited about, and we want to create exactly what you want. Not only will it add value to your home, but you’ll love the space you’re in even more.
There are a wide range of factors to consider before a remodel. Everyone has different ideas about what they want to do to their bathroom, and the difference in these ideas can make the cost vary wildly. It’s important to consider all the possible areas you want improved. Below, we’ve outlined rough cost estimates for each of the different, and most common, areas that are included in a remodel. That way, you get ideas as to what you’d like to focus on while understanding how much it might cost to achieve a new look. We recommend writing down anything you might want to change while you read through each section, that way the gears of renovation will already begin turning before the design process begins.
It’s no surprise that the size of the bathroom greatly affects the cost. If you’re only renovating a small powder room, the cost will be minimal, but if you’re completely redoing and expanding a master bath, the price would likely cost you more unless you compromise in a few areas.
Expanding the size of your bathroom or switching around the floor plan is a popular option when remodeling. This option often adds a lot of cost to the project, and you’ll need professional help in order to get the project done on time, within budget, and done properly. You also need to consider the cost of redoing or installing electricity, insulation, flooring, doors, and many other factors when you undertake this project. The cost of changing around the floor plan to your bathroom or adding to the square footage will add significantly more to the remodel.
One of the first things to come to mind when you think about remodeling your bathroom is often replacing the countertops and the faucets. These two elements can vary in cost, depending on the state of the counters and the plumbing for the faucets.
Many people remodeling their house for the first time don’t realize that their countertops aren’t always attached to the rest of their vanity. If this is the case, it will open the possibilities for your remodel. You don’t need to worry about damaging the rest of the vanity if you just want to replace the countertops and faucets. This allows homeowners to mix and match their countertop and vanity to find a style they love. The material you choose will greatly affect the overall cost of this project. The size of the countertop, custom edges and style of sink will all affect cost.
Faucets are a much more involved, and potentially expensive, aspect of bathroom remodeling. Often, redoing your faucets will include also redoing the room’s plumbing. This has a great effect on the price of the remodel. The price is dependent on the faucets you want to use, the material of the sinks, and the age of the plumbing. If the in-wall pluming is in good shape, the price is likely to be cut substantially. Plumbing in older homes can be complicated. Finding a larger problem like rotting pipes or leaking water can drive up the cost.
Bathrooms need storage. Extra shampoo, soap, towels, and cleaning supplies need a place near where they’re used. Existing cabinetry can be refinished to save budget. For bathrooms that don’t come with cabinets, installing new ones under the vanity or in a nearby space may bump up the price quite a bit. Material, style, and size all affect price.
Expanding the storage, whether that’s putting a walk-in closet into your master bathroom or expanding the cabinetry under your sink, is a great option if you feel like the space is stale. Adding more storage into the room allows for you to put necessary toiletries nearby in case you need them.
Aside from the vanity, the shower, bath, and toilet are the three things that you notice when first walking into your bathroom. Updating these fixtures will make a huge difference in the feeling of the room as a whole. While toilets stay at relatively consistent prices – unless you get a toilet with extra bells and whistles – getting a new shower and tub can add a bit to the cost depending on the material. Getting your shower refinished with colored tiles will look amazing but it will cost more.
If you want to move your fixtures to a new spot, that will also add to the cost. In order to move around your shower, toilet, or tub, you’ll need to hire a plumber to make sure the plumbing is connected correctly. The cost range for redoing fixtures is wide but the improvement that this project will bring into your bathroom is often more than worth the cost.
The cost of flooring, similar to a lot of other areas in the room, is very dependent on what material you want to use. The price of putting in wooden floors or mosaic tile with grout all vary greatly in cost. You need to know what you want going into the remodeling and renovation process. The size of your bathroom will also change the amount of money the flooring will cost you.
Replacing the door to your bathroom is straight-forward as long as you don’t add anything major to the plan. Walls and ceilings are a lot more difficult to pin down. It will depend on the scope you have for the walls: do you want to add tile to certain areas or just add a fresh coat of paint?
New light fixtures are a great way to upgrade the feel of the room for a relatively low cost. Old light fixtures can make the room feel out-of-date, especially if your whole bathroom needs a remodel. If you want to move around where the lighting fixtures are located or replace old wiring, however, that will raise the price as replacing old wiring often requires wall patching.
Including a new ventilation system into your remodeling plans is a necessity. Ventilation systems impede the development of mold and mildew in your bathroom. Often, these are simple jobs, unless the replacement system you choose is larger or smaller than the one already installed in your bathroom. In those cases, demolition or patching may be necessary. If you want a timer or a light included on the fan, that will also affect the cost of installation.
Now that you have an idea of what you want in a bathroom remodel, begin to do research into specifics. What tile do you think would look best in your shower, or what new finish do you want on your cabinets?
