It’s happened to the best of us. Chip and Joanna, Jonathan and Drew, or another home remodeling duo has convinced you that it’s time to freshen up your home’s look with an HGTV-inspired makeover. And if you’re planning on redoing the bathroom, it’s also time to look into the costs of said makeover.
The overall price for a bathroom remodel depends on a number of factors – like how long you’ve been there, where your house is located and the age of your home. Remodeling a newer home is a completely different game than changing one that was built and renovated 90 years ago. But this time consuming project doesn’t have to break the bank. The average cost of a mid range bathroom remodel is around $15,000. This price depends on the factors listed earlier. Fixing up your bathroom costs less in the south and more in the north. And an upscale remodel with heavy changes will cost you upwards of $25,000.
Average or Upscale
The average bathroom remodel consists of replacing the toilet, resurfacing the tub, adding tile and revamping the vanity. An upscale remodel adds space by knocking out a wall, adding a window, rearranging the plumbing aspects, resurfacing or adding new countertops, putting in a double sink and replacing the light fixtures. Before going straight for the remodel, think about what it is you want to do.
If you don’t have the money to do everything you want to your restroom, you’ll need to find ways to compromise. What do you absolutely hate? What can you live with? Think long and hard about which aspects of your bathroom you truly want to change, and then begin the remodel.
The price will also depend on whether you do-it-yourself or hire a trusted professional to complete the work. Have a question about a bathroom remodel? Give the team at Mr. Plumber a call today!
