Understand the Size of Your Project
The size of the project will not only determine the cost factor, but the time and sacrifice. If you are looking to have a dramatic remodel, we advise to have a second bathroom at your disposal while the remodel is happening!
The Basics of Remodeling
Remodeling can be expensive, so knowing your budget is extremely important! Remodeling Magazine defines the degrees of remodeling as follows:
– Mid-range Remodel: New toilet, a tub with tile surround, a solid-surface double sin and vanity, a recessed medicine cabinet, vinyl wallpaper and a ceramic tile floor.
– Upscale Remodel: Expanding the room, adding a window, moving fixtures and replacing them with high-end models, an oversized title shower, stone countertops, upscale lighting, a bidget and other fancy amenities.
Costs and Returns
According to Remodeling Magazine’s 2019 data, the average cost nationally of a mid-range bath remodel is $20,420 with a return on investment at resale of $13,717, or 67.2 percent. Depending on where you live, the costs and returns vary widely. According to a 2010-2011 survey, the most expensive area is the Pacific Zone (California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Hawaii) at $19,490. However, this zone also has the highest return, at $15,514 or 79.6 percent. The upper Midwest is close to the national average on cost, but has a much lower rate of return, in the mid-50 percent range. The best value for a bath remodel is in the south central region, at a cost of $14,536 and a return of 70.5 percent.
Is Your Bathroom Remodel a DIY Project?
While do-it-yourself projects can be more cost-effective, it purely depends on your handyman skills and desired timeline. If you are limited on your remodeling skills or need the project done in a timely manner, hiring a professional may be the right choice for you! If you hire a contractor, compare their prices on material to what you can purchase online or at discount outlets. Also, consider doing the demolition phase of the project yourself to save on labor costs.
If this is your first project, don’t hesitate to pick the brains of those who have gone through the process before. Step away from your computer and speak to friends and family! If they hired a contractor, and were happy with the result, get a bid from that contractor. If you don’t know anyone personally, BathAndShower can provide you with information and recommendations on materials, fixture manufacturers, costs and reliable local contractors.
