Bathroom Remodel Pricing Guide

What Are the Essential Costs?

Bathroom RemodelUpdating the plumbing will account for at least 20% of the budget. You will want to upgrade the toilet, showerhead, faucets, and possibly the drains. A new water heater and septic tank may be necessary, depending on the age of the system. Updating the plumbing with high-quality, energy-efficient equipment will save money over the long term.

Expect to pay between 10-15% for attractive and durable cabinetry, tile, and flooring. The prices will greatly depend on your preferences of materials. Vinyl flooring is less expensive than marble, slate, and other natural stones and ceramics. A fancy tile backsplash in the shower will be labor-intensive, so expect to pay more for custom designs. Countertop surfaces will cost between 5-10% of your budget. Bathroom countertops are a feature for which you can choose durable materials without spending a substantial amount of money.

What About Additional Costs?

Many bathroom remodels come in slightly over budget due to unforeseen plumbing installation costs or additional details including artwork, heated tiles, and other décor options. Include an additional 25% in your budget to cover unexpected fees.
