Bathroom Remodel | How Much Will A Bathroom Remodel Cost Me?
There are so many reasons for a bathroom remodel: your family has gotten bigger, grandma has moved in, the big kids have moved out, or maybe your bathroom is just plain outdated in function and style. Whatever the reason for a remodel, you probably have one big question on your brain:
How much will a bathroom remodel cost me?
Determining how much your bathroom remodel cost will be depends on a lot of things. It depends on where you live, how old your home is, and the bathroom’s history.
For Massachusetts and Rhode Island homeowners, there are three general price brackets for a bathroom remodel and what you can get from each one.
- Good: $3k to $12k
- Better: $10k to $35k
- Best: $30k to $100k PLUS
Bathroom Remodel Cost Brackets
Good: $3k to $12k
This option is for the budget shoppers or the folks who just want a little update to their bathroom rather than a full blown remodel.
With this price range, you won’t be able to do any major changes. That means no plumbing changes and you’ll probably have to settle for stock for most of the fixtures and cabinets.
Of course, that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. In recent years, stock options have gotten more and more beautiful and the quality has gone up significantly. Affordable Quality Kitchens and Stone has a wide options of stock cabinets that would be perfect for your remodel and your budget!
For this price range, you can repaint the walls, get a low-end but sturdy countertop like granite or cultured marble, and probably tile the floor or shower area.
To keep your bathroom remodel cost low but your home’s appearance and value high, focus on the little things. Splurge on accessories and statement pieces like a tile backsplash. A little can go a long way with a little panache.
Better: $10k to $35k
If you’re ready to bring your bathroom to the next level, you’ll have to invest anywhere between $10,000 and $35,000. That’s a big range, but like whe said before, it depends on where you live and the bathroom in question.
So what will a bathroom remodel cost of $10k to $35k get you?
We’re glad you asked.
With this budget you could get:
- New flooring (we recommend tile or engineered hardwood)
- A new, more powerful toilet
- A new vanity, sink, or stone countertop
- New window treatments
- Custom or semi-custom cabinets and vanity
You might even be able to do some plumbing work and change the layout a bit. Think a bigger shower or adding a bath.
With this budget, you can move beyond stock cabinets. You can find semi-custom or custom options that are perfectly tailored to your space. You can also choose a higher quality countertop like quartz. You can go for porcelain tiles and choose to do accents or borders to add some style.
Unlike the previous bathroom remodel cost bracket, this isn’t something you can DIY most of. You’ll need to consult with our team at AQK to find the best designers, contractors, and installers to get your project done.
This level of remodel is for people who want to add value to their house but plan on living there for years to come. When you put this much into a remodel, you want to stick around to enjoy it!
Best: $30k to $100k PLUS
This is the big one. This is the one you go for when everything must go. You rip everything out and redo it completely. Maybe you knock down some walls and make the room bigger. You’re changing plumbing, getting fully custom cabinets and high quality tiles and stone. Maybe you add a sauna or a wet room. Natural stone countertops like granite, marble, or limestone go in. The plumbing finishes and parts are high quality. The accents are top of the line. Maybe you even get radiant heating floors; why not?
This remodel is for the folks who have the budget to go big. Maybe you were planning on upgrading to a new house but decided to stay put and revamp your current sitch instead. This is how you do that.
For any bathroom remodel here are some things to keep in mind:
- Most of your budget will go to installation, cabinets, and plumbing.
- You can remodel at any time of the year
- The remodel itself should take around 1 to 2 months, not including planning and your own research
