    Factors Affecting Bathroom Renovating Prices

    The size of the bathroom

    The bigger the bathroom – the more expensive the bathroom renovation cost will be. Larger bathrooms generally require more labour to renovate, and more materials like flooring, tiling, painting or wallpapering.

    Bathroom fixtures and materials 

    The materials and fixtures you decide on for your bathroom will have a big impact on cost. The cost of the renovation will increase with the price of the materials. Certain contractors could impose a material margin; the more the margin, the higher the cost of the materials.

    Changing the floor plan

    Changing the layout of a bathroom is one of the most expensive costs of a bathroom renovation. There is more plumbing involved, more electrical work needed, more labour hours and often, more fixtures need to be bought to suit the new space.

    Bathroom Renovation Tips

    Set A Budget

    Before you make any sort of decisions, first work out how much you have to spend on the renovation. Once you know exactly how much you have, you’ll be able to make better decisions when it comes to your bathroom renovation.
    Pro Tip: Keep 10 – 15% of your budget aside to cover any unforeseen expenses that may occur.

    Do some research

    Get quotes from more than one pro. This can help you estimate the cost of the job more accurately. If you are providing the materials, see which retailer has the greatest prices by making some calls.
    Pro Tip: Get an itemised quote from your kitchen renovations pro so you know exactly what you’re paying for and avoid any hidden costs.

    Bathroom Layout

    Changing the entire layout of a bathroom is expensive and involves a lot of manpower. Consult with a bathroom renovation expert when planning your renovation to
    Pro Tip: Avoid rearranging fixtures that require plumbing like the bathtub, shower or sink.

    Quality Materials

    Always buy the best quality materials you can afford so that you don’t have to redo your entire renovation because the materials have started to crack, crumble or break.
    Pro Tip: Splashing out on expensive materials and fixtures pays out in the long run as they last longer. 

    Stick To The Plan 

    During your renovation, you might come up with new ideas but stick to the plan. The more changes you make, the more expensive the job becomes.
    Pro Tip: Don’t get caught up in the excitement or the job or let yourself get talked into things you don’t want or need.
