Items That Affect Cost

When planning your project, it’s important to consider several factors that can impact the overall cost. Here are common features that many homeowners consider: 

  • Bathtubs: Size and style of the tub will impact price. For example, installation of a freestanding bathtub may incur additional plumbing costs. 
  • Cabinets and Vanities: Pricing varies, with stock vanity options being the most cost-effective. Size, top style, cabinetry and material used will impact cost. Custom cabinetry may be ideal in small spaces or luxury master bathrooms. 
  • Countertops: Materials will play a large role in renovation cost. While stone is stylish and durable, it costs more than other options. Prefabricated countertops work in many spaces and help to keep costs down. 
  • Faucet: Price will vary depending on manufacturer, style and material used. 
  • Sink: Pedestal sinks, drop-in sinks and designer styles all vary in cost. Typically, drop-in sinks are an affordable option available in an array of styles. 
  • Toilet: Replacing an outdated toilet is simple and cost effective. Basic and luxury models can vary in price, but installation costs are generally low. 
  • Tub/Shower Liner: If you cannot afford a larger upgrade or be without a working shower for too long, this is an ideal renovation idea. 
  • Wall and Floor Tile: Ceramic, porcelain and natural stone are popular picks for floor tile in bathrooms. Materials will be the deciding factor here, but natural stone often costs more to install because it is difficult to cut and place. From natural stone and classic ceramic to glass and mosaic styles that mimic natural materials, wall tile options vary.
