The bathroom is the most densely used and wearing out part of houses. So, most people need to make renovations or remodeling of the bathroom after a period. Also, people want to use and show their friends a well-decorated and fancy bathroom. So the question is; how much is the average cost of bathroom remodeling?
Actually, there are many variables that affect the total price of a bathroom renovation. As BST Design, we compile a useful consideration list about how to plan bathroom renovation. We have already prepared another post about the kitchen remodeling cost and this time You should make good planning, search for the best prices, bargain about prices, and create your dream bathroom.
Prepare A Well Bathroom Remodeling Plan
This is the most important phase of bathroom remodeling. Because everything you want, you need will be on this list and you will create a perfect match of them by using the costs. You can start by preparing a list including;
- General material like a bathtub, sinks, mirror, tiles, etc.
- Demolition work,
- Infrastructure like electrical, plumbing, and others,
and other things. You should consider everything and make your plan according to the list.
According to general estimates, an average bathroom remodeling cost ranges between $4,000-$50,000. Most people spend between $6,000-$15,000 for custom remodeling. But, only updating some essentials in a small or mid-size bathroom can cost between $3,000-$7500, which is a very reasonable price. As you can see, it is possible to lower the price with good planning. If you don’t have a restriction of budget and are ready to spend it, you can order the best.
But if you have a limited budget, you should think and plan wisely to decrease the total price. According to planning, there are needs and dreams. You should pick the needs to lower the price. There are many things that you can live without them. For example, you may survive even if you don’t have a bathtub. You can continue your life with a shower enclosure. The average price of bathtubs ranges between $1000-$6000, while enclosure prices range between $300-$1000 (Of course there is some super luxury enclosure with very high prices).
Go With the Professionals
So, you prepared your list and cleared what to do’s roughly. You have two choices; you can do everything by yourself or choose professional help. Home renovation companies like BST Design have professional designers, planners, and constructors to do the best bathroom remodeling. When you share your budget with them, they can do everything to fit your budget. They may have some special suppliers with incredible prices, they can hire well-experienced contractors with less money, and also they can assist you with the works that they don’t do like accessories. This way, they can reduce the price.
Otherwise, you will do everything by yourself. You will buy all the material and find contractors to do the job. You will also have to DIY some easy tasks. This will be definitely cheaper than the first one, but, there will be so many things that you will have to deal with. You should visit different home improvement stores to find the lowest prices.

One important tip about the whole process is to write down everything. You should note every plan, all the expenses you make, all the drawings according to your plan; we mean every little detail. This way you can follow the plan that goes according to the plan and your budget.
