Next to kitchen renovations, the bathroom reno is the most popular home renovation of them all.  It seems homeowners want their bathrooms to offer a stylish, spa-like experience that represents a relaxing escape from the hassles of daily life.  Not only do we spend a considerable amount of time in our bathrooms, bathroom design fads tend to change frequently.  In order to keep up with the latest trends, many homeowners rely on bathroom renovations.  Unfortunately, bathroom renovations can also be quite costly depending on the scope of the project.  So, how much do people spend on bathroom renovations?

The question of cost when it comes to any renovation is always a little tricky to answer.  Some homeowners throw on a lick of paint and call it a renovation which is likely to cost only a couple hundred dollars.  Most homeowners are a little more comprehensive in their bathroom renovation, so there are many factors to consider before determining cost.  Which finish you select, whether you’re replacing or revitalizing fixtures such as the toilet, sink, and bathtub, and whether you’re installing new flooring or lighting will clearly impact your renovation costs.  Indeed, the cost of a bathroom renovation can easily vary from as little as $2000 to more than $50,000.

But let’s get real, on average a homeowner spends about $9000 on a bathroom renovation.  Determining your budget is one of the most important steps in your bathroom renovation, so to get a clearer picture of overall costs before you start the project you need to breakdown costs based on the size of your bathroom (small, medium, large, or master bathroom) as well as the options you’re planning to renovation.  Here’s a list of just a few options you might include in your renovation:

  • Bathtub/shower
  • Toilet
  • Sink
  • Cabinets
  • Countertops
  • Flooring
  • Lighting

Now consider this: each of these options will vary significantly in cost.  A low end bathtub might cost a few hundred dollars, but a large Jacuzzi tub with all the bells and whistles could cost several thousand dollars.  Likewise, a basic toilet might run around $150, but you could easily spend closer to $1000 if your budget allows.

Generally speaking, a smaller bathroom will be cheaper to renovate because there is less square footage but also fewer features to update.  There are also many cost-saving approaches you can take to keep your renovation costs manageable.  Refinishing a porcelain bathtub will likely be significantly cheaper than replacing it, for example.  Also, consider using your current floorplan to reduce renovation costs – if you plan to move your sink, toilet, or tub, you should also plan for significant costs with respect to the plumbing.

So, to make a long story short, bathroom renovation costs vary widely depending on your unique renovation.  Take some time before you begin your project to set a realistic budget and then look at the costs associated with all the changes you want to make to keep yourself to that budget.
