Factors Affecting The Bathroom Renovation Cost

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 fixtures and materials you choose for your bathroom will affect the price significantly. The higher the price of the materials, the more the renovation price will be. Some contractors may charge a margin on materials so the more the materials cost, the higher the margin will be.

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 will give you a better idea of how much the job will cost. If you are supplying the materials, call around and find out which store offers the best deals.
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.
