A bathroom remodeling project can cost anywhere from $5,000 to $30,000. The cost of a project typically depends on the size of the bathroom, if quality materials are used, and who the project is done by. Bathroom remodeling projects that reach $30,000 are projects that typically involve the remodeling of a very large bathroom. Projects that cost around $5,000 are often projects where materials of lesser quality are used. The average project has a price tag between $9,000 and $14,000.
Bathroom remodeling projects require many materials that most homeowners don’t already have on hand, and therefore have to be purchased. Material prices largely depend on the quality; better quality demands more expensive prices.
Bathtubs or showers, sinks, toilets, drains, faucets, and tiles are items commonly purchased for a bathroom remodeling project. The cost of a porcelain bathtub ranges from $300 to $2000. Shower systems, best for smaller bathrooms, cost around $200 to $1000. The average porcelain toilet has a price tag of $150 to $500. Sinks can be bought at a very similar price. Keep in mind that these prices don’t include installation or labor costs, so it’s best to be prepared for these extra charges beforehand.
