Remodeling your bathroom is one of the best ways to quickly add value to your home. It’s no surprise then that bathroom renovations are trendy. Unfortunately, it can also be tough to pinpoint a specific price point without the help of a professional home remodeling company. The size of the bathroom, the 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. It will add value to your home, and 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 included in a remodel. That way, you get ideas about 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 want to change while reading 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 dramatically affects the cost. If you’re only renovating a small powder room, the cost will be minimal, but if you’re entirely 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 to complete the project on time, within budget, and correctly. When undertaking this project, it would be best to consider the cost of redoing or installing electricity, insulation, flooring, doors, and many other factors. The cost of changing 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 faucet plumbing.
Many people remodeling their house for the first time don’t realize that their countertops aren’t permanently 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 want to replace the countertops and faucets. This allows homeowners to mix and match their countertops and vanity to find a style they love. The material you choose will significantly affect the overall cost of this project. The size of the countertop, custom edges, and type of the 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 significant effect on the price of the remodel. The price depends on the faucets you want to use, the sinks’ material, and the plumbing’s age. The price will likely be cut substantially if the in-wall plumbing is in good shape. Plumbing in older homes can be complicated. Finding a more significant 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 their use. Existing cabinetry can be refinished to save budget. Installing new ones under the vanity or in a nearby space may bump up the price quite a bit for bathrooms without cabinets. Material, style, and size all affect cost.
Expanding the storage, whether putting a walk-in closet into your primary bathroom or expanding the cabinetry under your sink, is an excellent option if you feel the space is stale. Adding more storage into the room allows you to put necessary toiletries nearby if needed.
Aside from the vanity, the shower, bath, and toilet are the three things you notice when walking into your bathroom. Updating these fixtures will make a massive 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. To move around your shower, toilet, or tub, you must hire a plumber to ensure the plumbing is connected correctly. The cost range for redoing fixtures is broad, but the improvement this project will bring into your bathroom is often more than worth the cost.
The flooring cost, similar to many other areas in the room, depends on what material you want to use. Putting in wooden floors or mosaic tile with grout varies significantly in cost. You need to know what you want going into the remodeling and renovation process. The size of your bathroom will also change how much the flooring will cost you.
Replacing the door to your bathroom is straightforward as long as you don’t add anything significant to the plan. Walls and ceilings are a lot more challenging to pin down. It will depend on your scope for the walls: do you want to add tile to certain areas or 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 in 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 installation cost.
Now that you know what you want in a bathroom remodel, research specifics. What tile would look best in your shower, or what new finish do you want on your cabinets?

The cost is influenced by the size of the bathroom, the state of the fixtures, desired changes, room layout alterations, and material choices for counters, faucets, cabinets, fixtures, flooring, walls, ceilings, doors, lighting, and ventilation.
The size significantly affects the cost; a small powder room will cost less to renovate than a large master bath. Expanding the bathroom or altering the floor plan will also significantly increase costs.
Kaminskiy offers an in-home design consultation to provide a cost estimate and assists throughout the remodeling process, ensuring the desired design is achieved.
Redoing faucets often involves adjusting or replacing the room’s plumbing. Costs can vary based on the chosen faucets, sink material, and the age and condition of existing plumbing. Older homes with plumbing issues can lead to higher expenses.
New light fixtures can upgrade the room’s ambiance relatively cheaply. However, relocating fixtures or replacing old wiring can increase the price. Ventilation systems are essential for preventing mold and mildew. Costs can rise if the new system’s size differs from the existing one or additional features like timers or lights are added.
