Bathroom remodeling companies generally charge $60-$90 per hour which is more than half of your total remodeling expenses. Hiring a general contractor is optional and they can usually help you with finding laborers to complete your remodeling project. Companies often subcontract labor to individuals however some of them keep a staff of installers on payroll.




On average, bathroom demolition prices can vary from $1000 to $3000. These figures differ based on whether or not you are changing the size layout of the bathroom. Modifying things such as plumbing, electrical, and moving walls have the greatest impact on cost of a bathroom renovation


Shower or Bath 


Many people are converting their bathtubs to low threshold showers. Tubs are traditionally more expensive than shower bases therefore contributing to the lower cost when converting to a shower from a bath. Regardless of which direction you decide to go, this has a significant impact on the cost sometimes up to 70%!




There are several factors to consider when determining the price of painting a bathroom. Color – modifying the color can have an effect on the amount of coats necessary when painting. This can create a need for more paint therefore elevating the cost. Size – size of bathroom is an obvious reason. If the bathroom is bigger it’s going to cost more to paint. Painting when done by the homeowner can save hundreds of dollars.





Plumbing accounts for potentially 20%-30% of the cost of your remodel. Below are the contributors to the cost of your bathroom remodel:


  1. Toilet
  2. Faucet
  3. Shower Head
  4. Diverter
  5. Handheld Shower Wand
  6. Drain
  7. Shower Valve
  8. Bathtub faucet




A vanity can potentially determine whether or not the bathroom is cosmetically appealing. Be sure to look at different styles when making a choice on a vanity. These can range anywhere from a few hundred dollars to thousands.


Custom or Box Store?


There are hundreds of bath solutions available in your local box store. These options are generally used when trying to be cost effective. Custom options are typically priced at a higher range than stores bought due to the quality. While the store bought solution is cost effective, it is not a good long term solution. 


Home Value Improvement


Remodeling your bathroom can increase value of your home as well as assist in making your home modern and marketable to a potential buyer!


Tile or Manufactured Surround?


Tile is great when adding cosmetic appeal to your bathroom, however, there are costs to beauty. With grout being highly susceptible to mold and mildew, tile is used less frequently in bathrooms to accommodate cleanliness. A manufactured surround is a great way to save and add convenience and cosmetic appeal.
