What is the Cost a a Bathroom Remodel?

The first question every one asks is "What is the cost to remodel my bathroom?" I guess the one of the biggest fears is they do not know how much the actual cost will be and they want to gage the actual price of the remodel. 

Our approach is to target the budget. We let our clients be completely in charge of the cost of the project. For a complete bathroom remodel the client can spend $5,000 or more. It all just depends on what the client wants, the scope of work and the quality of the accessories they want to install. bathroom remodeling building contractor home improvement Los Angeles

Bathroom Remodeling Costs Factors

 Bathroom Remodeling Costs Factors:


  1. Finish costs- this includes the bathroom tiles, counter-top material, quality of the plumbing fixtures, custom cabinetry, and shower enclosure.
  2. Changing bathroom foot print- These alterations require labor to complete. They raise the cost of construction- Moving walls, moving toilets, and sinks from one place in the room to another. Move these fixtures, triggers massive infrastructure costs to relocate the waste and feed plumbing lines.

Bathroom remolding typically include the following trades:

  • Masonry- Tile of shower/tub walls, bathroom floor and walls. Counter-tops and back splashes also fall in this category if they are made of stone. 
  • Plumbing- shower valves, bath tubs, vanity faucets, toilet, shower head and body sprays, vanity faucets and sinks.
  • Drywall- drywall patching or in some cases the entire surface of walls and ceiling.
  • Electrical- LED recess lighting, new switches, motion sensors, new circuits to separate the light from the counter outlet at the vanity.
  • Ventilation (HVAC)- Ventilation motor that vents to the exterior of the house.
  • Painting- walls, ceilings and baseboards will need to be painted at the end of the project.
  • Shower Enclosure- On the cheap a shower curtain and rod, frame-less shower door and inline panel or bi-pass glass doors.

Finish Materials Costs:

These items represent what the bathroom will ultimately look like. Bathroom tile can range from a cheap Home Depot special of $ 0.79 per foot to a gorgeous $15 per foot Carrera Marble.

  • Tile costs represent about 10% of the bathroom remodeling cost (Installation not included). Most high-quality porcelain tile and deco strip is around $1,500 for a 75 square foot bathroom (typical small 1950’s house).
  • Custom cabinets run about $2,500 for units up to 48” long.
  • Pre-fabricated vanities are approximately $1,200 if constructed with plywood sides.
  • Expect to spend around $2,000.00 in mid-level plumbing fixtures (Kohler).  
  • Frame-less shower enclosures can range from $1,200- $2700 depending on size and complexity of the installation.

Changing bathroom foot print:

Some bathrooms are so poorly configured that we need to change the existing layout. The fact that I point out that costs will increase should not diminish your intent to fix issues with undesirable floor-plans. Adding square footage and re-configuring the floor plan of a small bathroom can result in a functional use of space and fantastic aesthetic appeal. Let’s recap the possible effects of changing the following:

  • Moving a toilet or bathtub affects the hidden plumbing.
  • If your bathroom has a concrete slab, it gets even pricier because concrete cutting is labor intensive. This part alone can cost about $3,500.00- $5,500.00.
  • Moving walls is also expensive. Installing new beams and posts will run you $1,300.00 in engineering and as much as $2,500.00 in framing costs! building contractor home improvement Los Angeles

Bathroom Remodel Levels

 

  • Basic level $5,000- $25,000.00- Include low cost plumbing fixtures (type you find in Home Depot, Lowes). At this price range, you can have prefabricated cabinets and porcelain tiles. No walls being moved and no change to the foot print. That means that the vanity, shower and toilet remain I the same location and are replaced in place. Perhaps a recess light in the shower is added with a new vanity light. The vent fan is replaced and venting using the existing vent pipe. This is a good- quality bathroom remodel with value porcelain tile in the $2 range and many off the shelf items. Good design and good bones.

  • Mid-Level $10,000- $33,000- This bathroom is outfitted with superior quality fixtures usually found at stores like Fergusons. Heavy brass faucets for the sower and vanity are offered. The shower system may have multi-function diverted, temperature setting and hand wand. An upgraded shower head is tops off these new fixtures. Tile options for walls usually are either porcelain tile or travertine. The vanities can be higher quality prefabricated cabinets or smaller custom vanities. At this price point, the tub/shower combo is replaced in the same place with a shower only. The shower may have some niches for custom storage, a bench with a stone top surface and a frame-less shower enclosure. A lighting upgrade is also included with new circuits for lighting and counter plugs. A Panasonic ventilation system with a moisture sensor is added. At the higher end of this spectrum vanities may have been move or custom made. This is truly a beautiful bathroom with higher quality materials and craftsmanship.

  • Luxury Level $20,000- $45,000- These bathrooms are truly amazing! e point we build truly majestic bathrooms. Luxury level bathrooms are designed and built to give clients a “in home spa experience.” Imagine a shower with wall jets and ceiling rain showers. Jet tubs with built in heaters are also commonly installed. In many cases, the custom vanities are comparable to a piece of fine furniture. The cabinetry offers custom storage layouts and cabbies to store your bathroom toiletries.  Wall tiles can vary form limestone, marble, granite, or natural stone.  Custom benches topped with exotic stones and wrapped by a frame-less shower enclosure. bathroom remodeling building contractor home improvement Los Angeles
