Bathroom Remodeling Costs Explained
Let's break down the items that go into the numbers above to find out what exactly goes into figuring out that cost. These are some of the biggest contributing factors to the overall price of a bathroom remodeling project.
Tile Showers and Tubs
The biggest factor in a bathroom remodeling project is deciding on a shower or tub. Some projects have enough space for both. The larger the tile shower or tub, the larger the price. Most clients select showers with a niche and sometimes a bench seat. Also consider the different plumbing options such as body sprays, handheld showers, and rain shower heads.
Acrylic Tubs and Showers
Acrylic tubs and shower systems are a great alternative to tile and grout. Installation is faster and you can get the look of tile, marble, or stone without the high cost. Easy to clean and care for as well as resistant to mold and mildew buildup. Most come with a lifetime warranty. Options for shelves, seats, and more.
Flooring is another important aspect when planning financially for you bathroom remodeling project. When selecting flooring, most high-end remodels use tile, but for a more cost effective solution, luxury vinyl plank or tile is a better option without grout and is waterproof.
There are two types of vanities on the market today. One is a pre-fabricated vanity. This is your most cost effective option and typically includes the top and sink. The second option is a custom vanity. These can me made to specific dimensions to fit your space and there are many options for the countertops just like a kitchen. Custom vanities also allow specific stains, colors, and styles.
Today's toilets have come a long way. There are many styles and shapes that can add to the look of a bathroom remodeling project. Standard height or comfort height toilets enable you to have a toilet at a comfortable height. Round bowl or elongated are also options. When it comes to a toilet, the main components in the tank are what controls water usage and the flush. Some toilets have different mechanisms for flushing for a better flush with less water.
Lighting can make a difference in a bathroom remodeling project. The amount of lighting, the style of the fixture, and the color of the light itself all contribute to the overall look of the bathroom. There are many options including fixture colors and styles that can add elegace to a bathroom remodeling project.
Shower doors can add not only an upgrade look to a bathroom remodeling project, but they can also add function. Nothing is better at keeping water in the shower than a glass enclosure. Plus with a glass shower door, you get the full effect of the tile along with the light that can enter the area. There are two main types of shower doors, semi-frameless and frameless. Semi-frameless doors are the more cost effective option since they are pre-fabricated and can be installed with a bathroom remodeling project. Frameless doors can be prefabricated, or they can be custom depending on the setup of the shower. Typically with custom shower doors, they are more expensive, but can give the more elegant look to a bathroom remodeling project.
Creating A New Bathroom
If you are thinking about creating a new bathroom that is not existing, or removing walls to enlarge a bathroom, you will want to factor in the associated costs of moving or removing any walls. The cost of creating a new bathroom that is not existing, or removing walls will vary greatly depending on if plumbing, electrical, or HVAC needs to be moved or installed. If a new bathroom needs to be added on the home, that is considered more of an addition. When creating a new bathroom that is not existing, consider additional costs including permit fees, additional work required by code as part of the permitting process, and the overal costs associated with the scope of work. Note: Quality Remodeling does not offer additions and we typically only remodel exisiting bathrooms.
