NY Mortgage Brokers Discuss How Much a Bathroom Remodel Would Cost, Amherst, New York

According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association, the average bathroom remodeling project cost $11,364 in 2016. Consider the following budget breakdown for bathroom remodeling and why you need a mortgage broker for the process:

  • Cabinetry: Bathroom vanities can affect the look and feel of the entire room and set the tone for your remodel. Prefabricated cabinets can cost $900-$1,500 depending on size, style, and materials. Custom cabinets cost more around $500-$3,800, while a stylish medicine cabinet costs around $500-$1,200.mortgage broker
  • Countertop: Pick a countertop that’s capable of standing up to water, soap, and cosmetic stains. Granite and solid surface tops are the most popular. Prefabricated stock counters made with composite materials start at $20-$150, while granite counters can cost $60-$100 per square feet.
  • Faucet & Sink: A basic bathroom faucet starts at $20-$70 and can go up to $450-$750 for those with high-end finishes and designs. Regular bathroom sinks cost around $50-$250, and designer models can go up to $300-$1000. Most sinks come with the faucet included.
  • Bathtub & Shower: Bathtubs provide the relaxation you need after a long day. A new one can cost between $200-$600. Large bathtubs with a water jet feature can go higher than $3,000. Meanwhile, you’ll pay $250-$4,000 for a shower remodel depending on size and materials.
  • Installation: Buying the materials is just the beginning. To have your cabinets installed by a contractor costs $200-$1,000. For countertops, charges can go up to $2,000 for custom high-end. A plumber can charge $75-$150 for installing a faucet.
