How Much Does a Bathroom Remodel Cost?

The million dollar question is always, "Will this cost me a million dollars?"

There always seems to be trends to the inquiries that pop-up in my inbox. As of lately, I've been receiving many requests for bathroom remodels. The people of Portland, Oregon are ready to remodel their bathrooms!

As families embark on this journey there are so many questions that they have--and so much anxiety too!

And rightfully so. Home remodels are so gratifying, but damn if they're not stressful. We're all wired to fear the unexpected and home remodels are just that, a lot of unexpected stuff!

You can set yourself up for a smooth process by prepping for the big unknowns.

How much will it cost?

How long will it take?

Where will I get my new vanity?

What kind of lighting?

Who will be making the decisions and keep track of things?

The million dollar question is always, "Will this cost a million dollars?"

Forbes.com recently found that on average, bathroom remodels cost about $10,000. The most budget-friendly remodel can be done for $2,500 (the DIY approach), while high-end projects can be upwards of $30,000. You can expect to spend between $70 to $250 per square foot to renovate your bathroom, depending on what type of upgrades you choose.

There is always a range when we talk about price. Here is the range of what you can expect to spend on the elements in your bathroom. In general, fixtures and finishes will be about 10%-15% of your budget.

As with fixtures and finishes, there is a variety of price points for the cost of labor to install your new bathroom. In general, you can expect to spend 40% to 65% of your budget on labor. This includes the upfront cost of hiring an interior designer to design your dream bathroom.

I've been in this industry long enough to know that you get what you pay for. If you want quality work and crafts-person-ship, you need to pay for it.

The benefit of working with an interior designer on your bathroom remodel is that you will have a guide. We guide you through all of the decisions that need to be made, we will connect you with the right tradespeople, we can pass on our trade discounts when appropriate and we will give you a bathroom that your friends will sure to be  jealous of.
