How To Estimate The Cost Of Remodeling Your Bathroom

Now is a great time to look at remodeling your bathroom. If you’re considering remodeling, the first thing you need to pin down is your budget. Here are a few of the factors that you need to consider when estimating the cost of remodeling your bathroom.

Start With the Facts

You can expect to pay anywhere between $5,000 and $15,000 if you’re looking at a bathroom remodeling project for an average-sized bathroom. So first, you really need to think about whether or not you have the money to invest in this project. If $5,000 is going to stretch your budget or is unattainable, your dreams of a bathroom remodel may need to be put on hold.

Think About What Needs to Be Remodeled

Next, you need to consider everything in your bathroom that you want to remodel. If you’re just replacing your toilet and a couple of fixtures, this could end up being on the cheaper side of a bathroom remodeling project. If you’re looking to gut the whole bathroom and start from scratch, expect to be closer to the $15k mark on your budget. The more work your bathroom needs, the more your remodeling project will cost. The more items you can keep or reuse in your space, the cheaper your project will be.

Materials for a bathroom remodeling project can range from cheap to expensive, depending on your taste and the materials you select. If you know what you want to remodel, whether it's the whole bathroom or just a couple updates, start to look at the materials you'd like to use, and grab some prices.

Price Out Materials

The next step to estimating the cost of remodeling your bathroom is to try and price out some of the materials that you are considering using. Materials for a bathroom remodeling project can range from cheap to expensive, depending on your taste and the materials you select. If you know what you want to remodel, whether it’s the whole bathroom or just a couple updates, start to look at the materials you’d like to use, and grab some prices. This will help you determine whether you can afford the materials that appeal to you or whether you should look at more affordable materials or wait until you save more money.

How Much Work You Want to Do Yourself

Lastly, ask yourself how much work you are willing to do yourself. If you’re the handy type, much of the project could be done on your own. Tearing out the existing space, and doing some install work can help save some dollars here and there and reduce the cost of your bathroom remodeling project. On the flip side, if you prefer someone to do all of the work for you, your project may end up costing you a little bit more money.
