Select Your Project
When potential buyers take a look at a property, they usually start by checking out the bathroom. Leaks, old appliances or damaged flooring are all common red flags, which is why remodeling your bathroom is such an important part of home maintenance. Let this guide help you understand the average costs of bathroom remodels as a whole as well as for individual projects you might want to tackle one by one.
How Much Does New Tile Flooring Cost?
One of the most common parts of a bathroom remodel is removing the old flooring and installing new tiles. The biggest factor in the cost of this project will be the flooring itself, which can vary wildly in price. The most expensive materials are typically natural stone tiles and upscale porcelain tiles. The cheapest options might be laminate, vinyl or budget ceramic tiles. Installation can be done as a DIY project to further reduce costs, but you may need to rent or buy supplies in order to complete the job. Expect an average cost of $2,995 to replace and install the flooring in your bathroom.
Cost to Install a New Bath Fan
If you want a small addition that can improve your bathroom in a big way, consider buying and installing a bath fan. This will reduce humidity in the room, eliminate odors and remove moisture from the air. If you already have a bath fan and the wiring is in place, then you can expect to pay a very reasonable $150 for installation. If there is no current space for the fan, however, your expense might be closer to $800.
Cost to Install a New Tub
Installing a new bathtub is one of the more complicated and expensive projects involved in a bathroom remodel. Not only will you have to purchase the tub itself, you will need to install surrounds and have a plumber come by for the installation. If you are just replacing the tub, and the surround can stay, your price will be lower than average. If you're having a customized surround built, expect to pay around $3,160.
Cost to Install a New Toilet
Buying a new toilet might not be exciting, but it is necessary during many bathroom remodels. The major expense here, as you might guess, will be the price of the toilet itself. If you can deliver the toilet to your home alone, then the installation cost will be minimal. On average, the cost of a new toilet as well as installation comes in between $360 and $492.
Bathroom remodels can include everything from painting the walls to installing a brand new tub. On average, most homeowners will pay between $8,265 and $11,426 to remodel their existing bathrooms.
