If you are planning to remodel your bathroom, there are several questions you may likely be asking yourself. How long does this type of renovation take? Is there anything I should do or prepare before this process begins? Above all, you may be wondering how much a bathroom remodel costs. The reality is that the cost of such a project often varies.
Average Cost Varies By Two Important Factors
The total cost of your bathroom remodel will largely depend on two important factors: the size of your bathroom and the types of appliances and materials you have selected for this project. Here is a close look at these two factors.
If you have decided to remodel your master bathroom, this will likely cost you more than renovating a smaller-sized guest bathroom. However, it is worth noting that a remodeled master bath may potentially increase your home’s resale value by a significant amount, in addition to improving your daily life routine. According to recent estimates from The Home Depot, a guest bathroom remodel costs (on average) between $14,000 and $20,000, while a master bathroom renovation can cost $30,000 or more. A powder room that is smaller than a guest bathroom may cost as little as $5,000 to renovate.
Appliances And Materials Chosen
The cost of your remodel will also depend on the types of materials and appliances your contractor and subcontractors use for the project. For example, tile, ceramic, and wooden floors will likely all carry different costs. The same is true for sink countertops. A granite countertop is typically more expensive than a laminate one, although the former material is more resistant to heat and wear.
Quartzite (stone) countertops are also generally durable, low-maintenance, and affordable. Prefabricated countertops are also typically low-cost. It’s also important to note that custom cabinets are perfect for both small spaces and master bathrooms. Be sure to inquire about the cost of all materials before beginning your remodel.
In addition to bathroom size and materials, there are other factors that may impact the cost of your remodel. Let’s analyze two of these additional considerations.
The Geographic Location Of Your Home
Your home’s geographic location (i.e. state and county) may affect the cost of your bathroom remodel because labor costs and the cost of living often vary from one state to another. Additionally, you may be forced to pay higher labor costs if the bathroom you are renovating is on the second floor of your home. This is because the work involved will likely be more difficult to complete, especially if it includes projects such as installing a large tub. According to HomeAdvisor, the average cost of a bathroom remodel in Northern Virginia in 2020 is between $5,500 and $14,000. In San Francisco and the Bay Area, meanwhile, the average cost range for a bathroom remodel is $11,000 to $25,500.
Permits Needed To Complete The Job
Depending on the state or area you live in, you may need to acquire a special permit for your bathroom remodel. Fortunately, these permits are generally affordable.
If you choose to install a new toilet or repair any water damage caused by leaks in your bathroom, this will also increase the cost of your remodel. Your renovation will also likely cost more if you choose to install features and accessories such as grab bars, mirrors, and additional lighting. Be sure to ask for a quote that includes the cost of performing repairs and adding these types of accessories.
