How Much Does It Cost To Remodel A Bathroom?

Tue Aug 31 2021

The bathroom is most likely where you start and end your day. After waking up from your peaceful slumber, you don’t want to drag yourself into a cramped, moldy cubicle. You want to enter a space of tranquility and rejuvenation.

If you don’t get a feeling of unsoiled rejuvenation in your bathroom, you might be due for an upgrade. Whether it be new tiles, new plumbing, or a floor-to-ceiling revamp, there is a bathroom remodel for every budget.

Bathroom remodeling estimates can come as quite a shock. Considering this room calls for lots of tilework, many fixtures, and expert plumbing and electrical, your costs can easily be run up unexpectedly. That is why it is important to get a trustworthy contractor on board to oversee all the ins and outs of your bathroom remodel. DadsHS will be your trusted partner during your renovation process and keep your exciting project on track.

What is Draining your Dollars?

Creating an overall average cost is nearly impossible as comparing bathroom remodels is like comparing facets to floor tiles.

The biggest chunk of your change will be allocated to moving the plumbing. In many cases, this is not necessary and your bathroom layout will stay the same. But if you are looking for a whole new floorplan, plumbing services won’t run cheap.

Updating your vanity will also eat into your budget. These cabinets are custom built to suit your layout and needs which will cost you extra. Installing prefabricated countertops will ease the burden but if you are looking for high-end counters, materials like quarts can run as high as $100 per square foot.

The hardware is also subject to massive price differences. Adding touchless faucets will be much pricier than wall-mounted faucets for example. The material also makes a difference as chrome is less expensive than brushed brass or nickel.

Changing your sanitary ware is not always necessary and in some cases, a new glass panel or new tiles will do the trick. If you are in the market for a new tub though, an alcove bath and shower combo will run in the vicinity of $600. A standalone tub is more expensive and can cost anywhere from $500 to $3000. Standalone showers cost around $800 for a standard installation and a toilet can cost anywhere from $100 to $1000 as many varying factors can come into play.

The scale of your bathroom remodel will drastically impact your price. Bathroom sizes range from 40-square feet to over 100-square feet and each comes with its own challenges. A 100-square foot bathroom remodels average around $20,000 nationally. That gives you an average of $200 per square foot. This can go up as high as $350 or beyond, depending on your finishing choices.

In Harrisburg, the average for a midrange remodel is $20,000 and it should add $10,000 to your resale value. An upscale remodel could add a nice $35,000 to your resale value at an average cost of $65,000.

Then again, there are varying degrees of remodeling. A partial remodel would be your least expensive option and you would only replace your toilet, sink, and tiles. Often when there has been water damage, this will be your first option. This would cost around $3,000 but can run up to $10,000 for higher-end tiles and plumbing.

Suffice to say, your bathroom remodel might be your most expensive yet rewarding upgrade to your home. Contact DadsHS today to get a free estimate on your remodel and get peace of mind that you are getting the most comprehensive, tailor-made estimate possible.
