How Much Does a Bathroom Renovation Cost?


Bathrooms, in addition to kitchens, are one of the most frequently used rooms in your home.

Upgrading your bathroom can not only attract buyers and increase the resale value, but starting your morning in a beautiful, bright bathroom will bring joy day after day. Before you start planning your remodel, however, it’s important to make sure that all renovations necessary for safety have been completed. All good?


Then, the first step is to determine your budget.


High-end finishes and fancy fixtures can drive up costs, but there’s no doubt that there’s a bathroom renovation project for every price range!



Factors including local labor rate, size, and finish quality all go into your project cost


Homes in more expensive parts of the country, where labor rates are higher, can expect to pay more than homes in less expensive parts. The average bathroom remodel cost in New England is about $25,000-$35,000* and about $20,000-$30,000* in the Southeast. Remodel It’s cost estimates are location specific, using the most up-to-date labor rates and material pricing to estimate your project’s costs.


Next, consider how extensive of a renovation project you want to complete


Are you thinking about doing a light refresh by painting your vanity and replacing the toilet? Or are you thinking about gutting the bathroom and starting from scratch? A light refresh on a small bathroom can cost as little as a few thousand dollars, while major high-end renovations on large master bathrooms can easily cost $50,000 or more. Remodel It’s cost estimator allows you to easily choose between a gut renovation or individual projects so you can build the bathroom of your dreams.


Finally, consider the quality of finishes you want to use


That luxury porcelain throne you love just might not fit into the budget, and that’s ok! There are so many beautiful options to choose from. Remodel It allows you to effortlessly change between different renovation quality levels to suit your needs and budget.

Ultimately, the quality of the materials chosen, the size of your bathroom, your home’s age, and location all affect your renovation cost. So come up with a budget, and stick to your plan. It may be tempting to add features or upgrade to the latest appliance model, but these will quickly increase costs pushing you beyond your original budget.
