How much will a bathroom remodel cost?
This is typically the first question homeowners ask when considering a bathroom remodel. And fair enough—national averages leave room for a wide range of prices.
According to Remodeling Magazine’s 2017 Cost vs. Value report, the average cost to remodel a 5×7 bathroom is $18,546. That price includes:
• 30×60” porcelain-on-steel tub with 4×4 ceramic tile surround
• Single-lever temperate and pressure-balanced shower control
• Standard white toilet
• Solid-surface vanity counter with integral sink
• Recessed medicine cabinet with light
• Ceramic tile floor
• Vinyl wallpaper
In an NKBA design trends survey , half of respondents reported paying between $10,000 and $29,999 for a bathroom remodel, while 31% said they paid more than $30,000. Here’s a breakdown of where the dollars go:
Cabinetry and hardware: 16%
Faucets and plumbing: 14%
Doors and windows: 4%
Walls and ceiling: 5%
