Factors Affecting Bathroom Renovation Costs
The size of the bathroom
The bigger the bathroom – the more expensive the renovation could be. Larger bathrooms generally require more labour to renovate, more materials such as 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.
