Over the past 15 years, we have been doing bathroom design and remodel projects in the greater Lansing region and surrounding Mid-Michigan areas. We have a decent sample size to develop average pricing for most bathroom remodels.
In this article, you’ll learn the factors that will cause the price of a bathroom remodel to either go up or down, a deeper explanation of the price for each bathroom, and what to expect in a bathroom remodel from each price range.
The size of the bathroom being remodeled plays a massive role in determining the overall price of the project. As the size of the bathroom increases, it requires more materials, more design time, and more man-hours/labor to complete the project.
Conversely, a smaller bathroom requires less of these so the cost will be reduced.
Age of the Home
The year a home was built will play a significant role in the price as well. The existing condition of the home and its mechanics will be taken into account for pricing and this includes the condition of the existing plumbing.
A bathroom remodel, for example, often requires plumbing work for the shower, sink, and toilet. In older homes, this plumbing may be in less-than-ideal condition and will need to be replaced due to rusting or leaking.
The plumbing can be a significant factor in the pricing of a bathroom remodel especially if you plan on moving the different fixtures such as the toilet, sinks, shower, or bathtub. If the piping needs to be rerouted, the wall will most likely need to be re-framed, which obviously drives the price up.
If you want to keep costs down, keep the plumbing and fixtures in the same place and simply replace them with updated fixtures.
Replacing Existing Shower/Tub
The latest trend is to replace the existing fiberglass shower/tub combo with a standing tile shower with glass.
Doing this will cost more and will be time-consuming. The glass for the shower will also be expensive, but will look amazing!
When planning for your remodel, decide if you want to replace the tub with a tile/glass shower and adjust your budget to include this.
Replacing the old or existing flooring with new tile to match a color scheme is popular. This will be a major cost factor that needs to be taken into account when designing and planning a bathroom remodel.
For a 10’ x 10’ bathroom, LVT flooring can range anywhere from $2,400 - $3,200 and tile flooring can range anywhere from $5,400 - $6,300.
Sink & Cabinet
Replacing the existing cabinets and sink is a major cost factor. The price for sinks, faucets, and cabinets ranges greatly from brand to brand.
You can make this part of your remodel as customized as you desire!
