Bathroom Workbook: How Much Does a Bathroom Remodel Cost?

Remodeling an outdated bathroom not only adds value to your home but allows you to create a personal sanctuary of relaxation and wellness. With all of the time we spend in our bathrooms, why wouldn’t you design a space that works perfectly for you? The wide range of materials and fixtures available on the market allows for endless customization and ways to pamper yourself in your bathroom; however, this also means that the price points can vary widely.

If you’re ready to renovate your bathroom, most likely, the first thought that comes to mind is, “how much will it cost to remodel my bathroom”? You’ve probably heard the answer already, “it depends.” As a homeowner, you have many options when you remodel a bathroom. The total cost depends on your budget, style, the scope of your project, the age of your home, how long you plan to stay in your home, and many other factors.

Although the cost of a remodel depends on many factors, when you’re embarking on a bathroom remodel for the first time, breaking down the types of remodels into three levels (by cost range and common materials and finishes) can help decide which level of remodeling is right for you (basic, mid-to-upper or custom/deluxe). Houzz editor, Mitchell Parker, does a great job of breaking down bathroom remodeling this way—by good, better and best.

The insight from this article should give you a good idea of which bathroom remodel type best suits your needs. It should also help you appreciate the added time and value of a mid-to-upper or deluxe bathroom remodel.

A moderate bathroom remodel typically involves keeping the existing footprint in place and not relocating any of the plumbing or electrical. The change comes from updating the fixtures and materials.  As you can see though, a moderate bathroom can still be fabulous with the right materials, guided by a professional designer.

Deluxe Bathroom Remodel

A mid-to-upper or deluxe renovation often involves reworking the existing bathroom layout or expanding the footprint by borrowing space from a nearby room. Depending on the project scope, a small addition may be needed to accommodate must-haves like a large soaking tub or a marble-topped custom dual vanity. These changes often require the need to relocate plumbing and electrical. Local building codes require minimum clearances between, beside, and in front of fixtures to allow for use, cleaning, and repair.

While these modifications require a more significant investment, you’ll end up with a modern, spacious bathroom designed to your exact specifications that will serve you for years to come.
