How much does it cost to remodel my bathroom?

How much does it cost to remodel my bathroom?  Your thinking about remodeling your bathroom and wonder what’s it going to cost? The challenge I find when talking with potential clients is their understanding of what it cost to remodel their bathrooms. As consumers, we can get overwhelmed by the different areas of information we get from television, newspapers, radio and the internet.  Check out my video below.

Questions to Ask Before Remodeling

There are several questions I like to ask in helping guide the customer to making the best decision for them.

  • Do you have a budget?
  • Do you have additional monies for upgrades or alterations?
  • Are you going to general contract the job themselves or higher a company to handle all aspects of their project?
  • What grade of materials and fixtures are you looking to put in their new bathroom?

So here are some guidelines for pricing we recommend to our customers.

Powder Room Remodeling Estimates

This particular bathroom generally are about 5 ft x 5ft in size.  Powder room remodeling start around $5000.00.

Hall Bathroom & Guest Bathroom Remodeling Estimates

Hall or guest baths can range from $15,000.00 to $20,000.00.

Master Bathroom Remodeling Estimates

Master baths usually start around $30,000.00 and can exceed $40,000.00.  This is dependent on selections, size, and scope of work in the bathroom.

How Much Does it Cost to Remodel My Bathroom – Intangibles Adding to Price?

Unfortunately, I think that most consumers don’t realize the intangibles that are a part of the remodeling process such as drawings, permits, inspections, product selections, experience and the list goes on. I think it is important that you educate yourself before the remodeling process and not after, that can be a much more expensive experience. 

Before you decide on what in your bathroom you’re going to remodel and how much you’re willing to spend you should take into consideration how long you will be living in your home. Once you know roughly how long you will be in the house you can decide what are the best things to remodel. Click here for my post on whether or not you should fix up your house prior to selling.
