A bathroom remodel will usually cost you between $10,000 and $16,000, but where does most of that money go? Some of that will go towards the space itself, with larger bathrooms being more costly to renovate, but even a smaller bathroom can break the bank if you’re not ready for it.
The biggest reason why renovating a bathroom is so expensive is due to the plumbing itself. Not only do you need to install the right bathroom fixtures such as the sink, bathtub, and toilet, you need to make sure that all the plumbing is connected and in good condition. If the plumbing isn’t connected properly, it could lead to thousands of dollars in repair bills as you have your “new” bathroom effectively gutted and remodeled yet again.
Since there is so much work that needs to be done in regards to the plumbing, much of the costs of remodeling any bathroom will go towards paying for the services of a reliable plumber, or at least a contractor who is comfortable installing plumbing fixtures. This doesn’t have to be as expensive as some of the other aspects of a remodel, but it is an expense that cannot be ignored. After all, a home’s plumbing system is too complex and important to be left to someone who isn’t an expert.
Finally, installing the right bathtub will make up much of the budget of your bathroom remodel as well. A bathtub can cost anywhere from $300 to over $3,000 depending on the material being used and the style of the bathtub. Fortunately, you have several options to choose from here, so you can save some money on a bathtub if the rest of your bathroom remodel starts to get too expensive.
