There’s no doubt that a well-designed, peaceful bathroom can make your house a more pleasant place to live, and that, conversely, a tacky, poorly-designed bathroom can take an otherwise lovely home and make it seem lacking.
If you’re not crazy about your bathroom, perhaps a bathroom remodel is on the docket. Remember, not only will it make your home a better place to live, but if you do it right, your remodeled bathroom will add to the value of your home.
So if you’re looking into a remodel, you’re probably wondering how much it’s going to cost you. Obviously, there are many factors that will determine the bottom line for your bathroom remodel in New Braunfels, TX. Among them are:
- How much of the remodel can you do yourself, and how much must be done by a professional?
- Is this a largely aesthetic upgrade—getting better fixtures, new floor, new paint, etc.—or do you need structural renovation, such as extending your bathroom or adding a window, in which case you will need a home remodeling contractor?
- Do you want to change the layout of the bathroom? This may require some new plumbing.
- Will remodeling your bathroom require you to bring your home’s old plumbing and electrical up to modern code?
- The features and fixtures you want for your bathroom, such as an antique tub, walk in shower or frameless shower in New Braunfels, TX can affect the overall cost of your bathroom remodel.
Because of the many factors that go into figuring the bottom line, a bathroom remodel can cost anywhere from $2,500 to well over a $100,000. Below you’ll get an idea of what you can expect for your money, no matter where your budget falls in that price range.
$2,500 to $10,000
This price range represents what you might call the basic remodel range. You won’t be expanding your bathroom, or moving your tub or toilet, but you can get some new fixtures, cabinetry and countertops, wall tiling or floor tiling, and even have enough room left in your budget for one big ticket item such as a walk in shower in New Braunfels, TX. Within this price range, you can afford high-quality products, but everything will be retail, or off the shelf. You won’t have money at this price point for custom designed products.
$10,000 to $35,000
Believe it or not, this is more of the average range for a bathroom remodel. If you’re spending this much, it’s useful to get expert opinion about how the changes will affect the value of your home. At this range you can adjust some of the plumbing and move your toilet, tub or shower. You can also get more expensive antique or marble or quartz counters and fixtures. At this price point, you won’t be doing any extensive construction work, such as actually expanding your bathroom, unless you can do much of that work yourself.
$35,000 to $100,000 and beyond
If you’re looking for a total redo on your bathroom, a layout change, a room extension, new windows, high-end finishes and features and custom work, then you’re looking at something in this price range. If you’re investing this much money in your bathroom, we believe it is imperative that you speak with a bathroom remodeling contractor and perhaps even an interior designer to make sure that you design a bathroom that will add value to your home that is commensurate with the cost of the instillation.
