Bathroom Budget

Budgeting for a Bathroom Remodel

Bathrooms are one of the most popular rooms to remodel. The average bathroom budget can cost between $5,000 and $25,000+ depending on a number of factors like size of your space, quality of materials, geographic region, and the number of items being updated. Putting a cool mosaic tile in a half bath, for instance, will cost a lot less than a full overhaul of a spa-like master bathroom.

We have taken the numbers reported by homeowners and laid out what the average cost of a bathroom renovation is. Major fixtures like your sink and toilet are likely to take up a 25% chunk of your renovation budget. The other major expense goes to the wall tiles and countertops. From there, you can expect to spend your bathroom budget on cabinets and vanities, flooring, showers, and lighting in that order.
