And industry trends bear out this desire for bigger, or just better, master baths. According to the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) homeowners undertaking bathroom renovations are spending the most on master bathrooms with an average budget of $32,000 (including materials and labor). That’s more than twice what is spent on a powder room remodel. That average cost, however, is dependent upon a host of factors including the scope of the remodel, whether you are using luxury or standard fixtures, where you live and other considerations.
The average cost to gut and demolish a bathroom is $400 to $2,000. Prices depend on the room size, type of materials, which fixtures are being removed, if walls are being demolished, and if any damage is found in the subflooring or inner wall structure. You can DIY to save money, but hire a professional to inspect your electrical wiring and plumbing.
The materials you choose for your new and improved bathroom will have the biggest effect on the final price. While 10sf of laminate may not be a lot, 25sq of marble can run as high as $2,500. Furthermore, if you decide to install any luxurious additions, such as a unique light fixture, Jacuzzi or heated bathroom floors, the total bathroom remodeling cost will rise.
If you were gutting your entire bathroom, contractors and experts say showers should account for one-third of the total remodeling cost. Furthermore, unlike your bathroom flooring, there are a few elements in play when considering a shower remodel. After all, you have to decide on a shower head, shower door and shower stall. All in all, a new shower typically costs approximately $2,800.
