Bathroom Remodel Pricing

Published by:


So you’re ready to redecorate and redesign your bathroom, but want to figure out the pricing? But dropping $20,000 on a deluxe spa retreat is light years away from what you can afford to spend. Here’s the good news: You don’t need mega-bucks to transform your bathroom into a relaxing, cool space. There are plenty of ways to renovate and redesign on a Pricing budget.

According to Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value report, an average bathroom remodel costs around $10,500 while an upscale remodel is going to run you a hefty $26,000. However, if you do the work yourself and get creative, This Old House estimates that you can do a remodel for $1,000 to $3,000, or even less, depending on how much you want to change.

Moreover, updating or adding a bathroom to your home is a home improvement project that adds value. In other words, you’ll recoup a significant portion of costs when you sell your home, as much as 100%.

Determine how much you can afford to spend on your remodel to determine the extent of the changes you can make. If your budget is on the low end (i.e. $1,000 or less), you’ll want to stick to cosmetic changes, such as new fixtures or a new sink, and new paint. If you have more to spend, you can focus on larger changes, such as adding tile, a bigger shower, or a window. Again, it all depends on your budget.

Bathroom Remodeling Trends

Thoughtfully planning bathroom renovations and using the right materials will make it easier– more importantly, it will make it work for your family for decades to come. Learn the top bathroom trends for 2013 below.

Trend 1: Showers that are built to last
Ditch the old soaking tub or Jacuzzi – nothing screams ’80s style like a monster tub. 2013 is about the larger shower. Taking the place of the traditional tub and smaller stand-up shower, larger showers are practical and make better use of the space. When planning your bathroom remodel, consider an accessible shower with a barrier-free entry and slip-resistant tiles. To add more function, safety, and comfort. add a handheld shower, rain shower, and corner bench seat.

Trend 2: Low-maintenance quartz countertops
Although granite is still a common choice for bathroom counters, low-maintenance quartz composites are rapidly gaining popularity. They require minimal effort to clean and maintain (which is excellent in a wet space) and look great.

Trend 3: Incorporate the hot colors of 2013
One popular color for 2013 will be charcoal. This color blends well with chocolate, gray, and a bit of green. In addition, deep emerald greens are taking off in popularity and that’s not limited to the runways. The fact that Angelina Jolie, Mila Kunis, and Catherine Zeta-Jones all wore emerald gowns for the Golden Globes Awards in 2011 may have pushed this color to the forefront. According to Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone’s color specialist, “It’s also the color growth, renewal, and prosperity – no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.”

Bathroom Remodeling Ideas

Remodeling a small bathroom is obviously a cheaper project than a full or master bath remodel. Plus, getting the most from the space in your small bathroom is imperative to making it a functional addition to your home. Remodeling your small bathroom can help you find ways to open this room up.

One of the best small and half bath remodeling ideas is to use the corners of your bathroom. Installing corner sinks, faucets, cabinets, or small bathroom vanities can help concentrate several bathroom needs in one area, leaving greater space for foot traffic and décor. Wall-mounted cabinets and in wall cabinets are also great ideas for small bathrooms. At the very least, you can reclaim some bathroom floor space and/or add more storage without sacrificing open space.

Now, for luxury bathrooms, the objective is often completely different. An efficient use of space and organization are always considerations, but luxury bathrooms are first and foremost about luxury. Whirlpool tubs are unmatched for creating both relaxation and a therapeutic massage after a long day of work. Luxury showers provide a respectable alternative to whirlpool tubs and are convenient enough for everyday use. If you’re a fan of the sauna, a home sauna will do more than just massage muscles. Saunas can purge the body of toxins.

And, while showers, tubs, and saunas are the primary installation, luxury bathrooms are about more than a relaxing soak. Expansive, stone countertops make getting ready in the morning a breeze. Your hair dryer, curling iron, cosmetics, and your morning cup of coffee will all fit comfortably on your bathroom counter. Vessel sinks are now in full vogue, and no bathroom would be complete without a large mirror and numerous cabinets.
