Are you planning to have your bathroom renovated but you have no idea as to how much it will cost you?

It’s best to know how much a bathroom renovation would cost you so that you could financially prepare for it. Local contractors estimate that a minimal bathroom renovation would amount between $16,000-$18,000 using contractor-grade materials. However, the price estimate would vary per contractor considering various factors such as the condition of the bathroom, your locality, materials to be used, as well as the time-frame for renovation.

Usually, a 40 square foot bathroom would cover between $16,000-$18,000. This would include the installation of a standard porcelain toilet, vinyl wallpaper or paint, installation of a porcelain or steel tub and shower, ceramic tile (four inch square tile), and installation of a solid surface counter and sink. It would also include the installation of a medicine cabinet and mirror as well as a single lever shower control.
