Of all the rooms in your home, the bathroom sees the greatest wear and tear. It’s one of the most-used rooms in the house, if not the most used. Moisture and skin oils from bathing and showering put a strain on the fixtures and fittings in the bathroom. As time goes on, many materials that aren’t correctly installed can begin to show signs of wear and tear, such as in the flooring and tile. It’s inevitable that your bathroom will need to be improved or renovated from time to time, but it doesn’t necessarily have to cost an arm and a leg. We’ll take a look at various bathroom remodeling projects and their estimated prices in this post. Now’s the time to start planning and hire a general contractor to get your project off the ground.
Cabinets for the bathroom
Cabinets in the bathroom should be water-resistant or sealed wood, and they should be designed precisely for the bathroom’s plumbing efficiency. It is important to ensure that the countertops and cabinets will fit the desired sink you want to install, as well as to make sure that whatever type of cabinet you want to use will fit to meet the dimensions and measurements of where it is going to be installed. In general, cabinet replacement costs are between $1500 and $1800, which will last around ten years on average.
The surfaces of the walls and ceilings in bathrooms
To avoid peeling paint in your bathroom, consider using moisture-resistant wallpaper or wall panels rather than painting the walls. Since vinyl or tile is extremely easy to clean and traps moisture, drywall and paint can be protected from mold or flaking by installing tile or vinyl in the shower area. As a rule of thumb, painting and laying tile should cost between $300 and $600. Investing in materials that can stand the test of time is a good idea, depending upon your ultimate goals.
Countertops in the bathroom
Countertops are where you’ll put hairdryers, toothpaste, water glasses, and many other items you use every day. As such, your countertops should be water- and even heat-resistant. You may pick from a variety of countertop materials for your bathroom renovation including quartz, granite, ceramic, and natural stone. Bathroom countertops may cost anywhere from $800 to $3000, depending on the material. Do your research before purchasing an expensive countertop and make sure both the color and texture are neutral so that you don’t have to replace it if your bathroom is remodeled again in the future.
Your bathroom’s aesthetic, function, and safety may all be improved with a simple floor upgrade. When it comes to bathroom flooring, tile and vinyl are frequently cited as the top choices. These materials are not only extremely long-lasting and easy to maintain, but their cost is lower than wood or stone. Installed flooring costs between $12.09 and $18.35 per square foot. HomeAdvisor estimates that the cost of bathroom flooring can range from $800 to $7,000.
Lighting Your Bathroom
Making a minor alteration to the lighting in your bathroom can give it an entirely different atmosphere and appearance. The amount of electrical work that will be required, as well as the kind of fixtures utilized, will determine the cost. According to HomeAdvisor’s research, the cost of your bathroom lighting project might range anywhere from $120 to $4,000 depending on the fixture(s) you choose.
