    How Much Does a Bathroom Remodel Cost?

    Are you considering a bathroom remodel but are unsure of how much it will cost? You’re not alone! Many homeowners are hesitant to start renovations because they aren’t sure what the final bill will be.

    The amount you spend on a bathroom remodel depends on the size of the bathroom and what kinds of amenities you choose for the remodel. According to the Home Depot website, bathroom remodels generally start at $14,000 for a basic upgrade and can run up to $30,000+ for an extensive master bath remodel. There are several factors that will influence how much you spend, and knowing what they are can help you successfully keep costs down.


    In this blog post, we will provide an overview of the extent of bathroom remodels, the installation and labor costs, and the cost of material. We hope this information will help you make an informed decision about your renovation project!

    Extent of the Renovation

    If you make significant changes to the bathroom’s layout, this can make a big difference in terms of cost. This is because it involves moving pipes and electrical wiring, which involves hiring a contractor and perhaps even having walls removed. Demolition costs for a small bathroom can run up to $1000, although you can save some money if you take the do-it-yourself route. But if you can manage to make the most of what you’ve already got, your renovation will be speedier and a lot less costly. Working with the basic configuration of the bathroom will minimize labor expenses and greatly simplify the process.

    Installation and Labor

    With online ordering and ready-to-assemble options, you can cut down on the amount you spend on installation and labor by having your materials delivered and installing them yourself. According to HomeAdvisor.com, labor costs usually run about $100-150 per square foot for a bathroom remodel. It also lists the costs for bathroom cabinets at $450-$900. Nelson Cabinetry’s vanity cabinets start well below this price range, and you can save even more money by installing the cabinets yourself.

    Cost of Materials

    Together with labor, the cost of materials for a bathroom renovation accounts for the significant expenses involved in a bathroom renovation. These can vary quite broadly. Bobvila.com reports that a new bathtub, together with installation, costs anywhere from $400-$8,000+, whereas the price of a new, installed shower is around $450-$10,000. Overall, showers are the more expensive option, especially luxury models such as those with stalls that incorporate glass or stone.


    Other items for a bathroom remodel include flooring, the cost for which will depend upon the square footage of the bathroom and the material selected, as well as mirrors, lights, and paint. Sinks and toilets usually cost only a few hundred dollars and around $350 to install. Countertops can also be a significant expense, running from around $100 to $1000+ to purchase and install.
