How Much Does Bathroom Remodeling Cost?

Every project is unique but these are the most common remodeling levels:

1.) Cosmetic   2.) Pull & Replace   3.) Reconstruction or ‘Custom’.

We’re going to explain each of these levels and provide general budget ranges to help you determine which is best for your needs. However, don’t feel you have to restrict your planning to only one level. Most clients combine elements from different levels to completely personalize their project.

Also keep in mind that you can modify your budget based on the following factors:

  • Scope of Work Some projects are fairly basic and require only a design refresh (a limited scope)—while others, like an addition or reconstruction, involve an extensive amount of planning and execution (a wide scope). The wider the scope, the higher the cost.
  • Product Selections Your selections for plumbing fixtures, tile, cabinetry, lighting, and other products will greatly determine the cost of your remodel. If you are trying to meet a specific budget but are looking for design impact, opt for mid-range products and then ‘splurge’ on one or more high end pieces.

Now let’s look at the three levels of Bathroom Remodeling:

Level One: Cosmetic Remodel $18,000 – $32,000

If the existing layout of your bathroom works for you, and most of the parts and pieces still function well, your bathroom could be a candidate for a simple cosmetic remodel.

Level Two: Pull and Replace Remodeling $29,000 – $70,000*

*Tile work costs for showers, back splash, and floors can vary widely.

What is Involved?

If you like the layout of your bathroom but would like to change all the parts and pieces, your bathroom is a good candidate for a ‘Pull & Replace’ remodel. At this level, the entire bathroom is basically gutted and everything is replaced. With Pull & Replace, many homeowners opt to remove the existing bathtub to make room for a new tile shower. (Read about the pro’s and con’s of living without a bathtub in your home.) The Pull & Replace level can save money because all the plumbing pipes and electrical fixtures remain in the same location.

It is also possible to create an accessible bathroom at the Pull & Replace Level. In fact, it is a really good idea to incorporate at least some items that will make your bathroom perfect for you today and well into the future.

Level Three: “Reconstruction” or Custom Build $58,000 – $90,000*

*Tile work costs for showers, back splash, and floors can vary widely.

If your current house simply doesn’t have enough space for your dream bathroom, it may be time to consider a Reconstruction or ‘Custom Build’. At this level of remodeling, floor space is added to the house. Another option is to expand the existing bathroom into an adjoining room or relocate the bathroom to another part of the house. With a Custom Build, the possibilities are endless.
