Getting a Grip on Bathroom Remodel Pricing

There are plenty of ways you can justify a bathroom remodel project. It can deliver a high return on your investment and amp up your home value. It can increase the comfort of your home and address underlying structural issues.

No matter how you look at it, though, one thing is for sure—pricing for a bathroom remodel can get out of hand quickly.

It’s possible to complete a bathroom remodel on just about every budget. The real challenge is getting a grip on pricing and maintaining budget control every step of the way.

Setting Pricing Expectations for a Master Bathroom Remodel

Scope and materials will ultimately dictate the cost of your master bathroom remodel. However, that’s not much insight for homeowners trying to decide whether or not they can afford the project.

To set expectations for remodel costs, here are some price ranges for the main aspects of any master bathroom renovation:
  • Bathtub: Between $1,000 and $4,600 at the mid-range level. But pricing can go as low as $400 and as high as $8,000.

  • Cabinets: Mid-range cabinets can cost between $2,100 and $7,200. Low-range projects can cost $1,200 whereas the high-end can reach $13,000.

  • Countertops: $1,700-$4,100 for mid-range, with low-range pricing as low as $900 and high-end as high as $6,500.

  • Flooring: The range extends from $800 to $5,000, with a mid-range average of $2,500-$3,600.

  • Lighting: As low as $120 and as high as $4,000, with a mid-range level of $1,100-$1,700.

  • Sink/Vanity: The mid-range cost ranges between $1,400 and $2,300 with high-end pricing up to $6,500.

  • Toilet: This fixture can be on average between $210 and $500.
Remember, these prices offer a loose guideline to give you an idea of what different aspects of a master bathroom remodel might cost.

Don’t read into the numbers too strictly. You’ll notice that the ranges are significant, making it difficult to lock down a specific price point.

Again, the actual price of your bathroom remodel will come down to scope and materials. The key to controlling costs is to have those two factors planned out in detail before the project starts. And that means finding the right partner to work with.

Sticking to Your Bathroom Remodel Budget

The biggest threat to your bathroom remodel budget is mid-project changes. Nothing is worse for cost control than getting halfway through the project and suddenly telling the contractor that you want to go in a different direction.

This often occurs when a bathroom remodeling contractor doesn’t take the right steps before starting the project. Which, by extension, means the homeowner didn’t have a comprehensive-enough plan from the outset.

Pricing listed in the previous section should ensure that you aren’t shocked when your contractor/designer starts detailing items in the budget. From there, you can come up with a reasonable budget that balances your financial circumstances with project demands. It’s a fine line to walk, but a full-service remodeler will help you do it with ease.
