How Much Does A Bathroom Renovation Cost?
There is no time like the present to plan a bathroom renovation. We are at home more often than ever and the bathroom is a room that we use and look at all the time. The question everyone asks when planning this type of renovation is “how much does a bathroom renovation cost?”. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to answer this question, but never fear, you can certainly start narrowing in on a much more refined budget expectation. Let us look at all the factors you would need to consider.
Factors to Consider When Determining the Cost of a Bathroom Renovation
- Replacing the bathroom fixtures
One major factor that contributes to the cost of a bathroom renovation would be whether or not you are replacing all of the fixtures.
- Are you replacing the toilet? (if it’s 10-years or older you should definitely consider it)
- Will you be upgrading your tub?
- Are you looking for a more modern shower head and faucets?
- Will the entire vanity be replaced or just the sink or both?
- Do you need a fan upgrade?
- Are you changing your lighting fixtures or adding more?
- Do the power outlets need an upgrade?
The list is only limited by your imagination so you really need to take the time to determine what are must haves versus simple nice to haves. This exercise will at least give you budget range option and you’ll know exactly you went with one end versus the other.
- Adding new high-end features
When you are making a room better that would usually mean adding some special features and these come with a bigger price tag. Wouldn’t it be nice to get out of the shower and have a warm towel waiting for you? If this sounds like something you would want you should consider a heated towel rack (yes, they exist). Maybe you have thought about a heated tile floor so when you get up to use the washroom in the middle of the night your feet can stay nice and warm. These aren’t necessities by any means but the time to put these extras in would be when you are doing a renovation. Did you know you can even get a fogless mirror? Let’s be honest, none of those options sound like a bad idea if your budget allows for it.
- Upgrading surface treatments
When it comes to the ceiling, walls, floors and trim, again you’ll find yourself in a sea of different and compelling options. Granite counter tops, tiled or hardwood flooring, crown moldings. The decisions you make here are going to largely affect your bottom line so once again, take heed in determine what are musts and what are just nice to have luxuries.
So, what should be the starting budget for your bathroom renovation?
