Factors in Calculating Bathroom Renovation Cost
Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling is often asked how much it costs to remodel a bathroom, in hopes of getting a general answer (we assume), but you can imagine that the answer is never simple. There are countless factors that will determine how much bathroom remodeling actually costs, so while we can’t give you an estimate for your Overland Park or Bonner Springs home without evaluating the project first, we can break down the average costs of the most common bathroom remodeling tasks.
No Two Jobs are the Same
In the interest of brevity, we’ll give you the mid-range estimates for each component of bathroom remodeling. Be wary of companies that charge far more or far less than these estimates. Not to say that they won’t do a good job, but we’d suggest that you check references and compare rates to make sure you’re getting the most for your money!
An average Kansas City bathroom remodeling project can range between $6,000 and $15,000. Factors that can affect that cost include the size of the bathroom, materials and fixtures, and the specific tasks to be done. For example, it could be quite costly to reroute the plumbing to move fixtures, an expense you won’t have to worry about if you leave the room’s footprint the same.
Installing fixtures, flooring, and cabinets are the major costs of a bathroom remodel:
Painting, installing light fixtures, and replacing the toilet are all jobs that will cost a few hundred dollars, more or less, but just because these jobs are less expensive that the big projects mentioned above, you still need to figure them into your budget.
Demolition is another fee that will be factored in. Removing and doing away with the old fixtures and flooring is a service that your contractor will provide, so you won’t have to worry about these things unless you have an intended purpose for them.
Finally, if you wish to have your contractor handle the ordering and receiving of materials or assist with design planning, these will be additional fees.
You can save money by doing some of the work yourself or leaving certain elements the same. Depending on your budget and the new look you want to create, you can work with Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling to design the perfect Prairie Village, Mission, or Olathe bathroom!
Some homeowners choose to do the demolition themselves and have the bathroom ready for the contractor to do all the new installations.
Bathroom renovation is one of the best things you can do to improve the resale value of your home, so that’s definitely a factor to consider as you stare down the list above! When you’re ready to update a bathroom in your Leawood or Shawnee home – either for your own enjoyment or for the next lucky owners – give Kansas City Bathroom Remodeling a call for value and service!
