What is the Average Bathroom Remodeling Budget?


People often ask, how much should my bathroom remodeling budget be? One resource that can serve as a guide is Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost vs Value for various home remodeling projects. They derive costs from a popular estimating software determining costs. Houzz conducts surveys of actual homeowners who have recently remodeled to determine what are the average costs could be for a bathroom remodeling project.

Homeowners want spa-like luxury in their own bathrooms, and the Houzz survey found for a large master bathroom remodel, homeowners invested an average of $31,400, and for smaller bathroom remodeling, $16,600 per project. Popular elements for bathroom remodeling design trends include:

  • Floating vanity with dual sinks and granite or quartz countertop. It makes the room look larger, along with ample lighting over the sink area.
  • No threshold walkin shower with decorative tile and a bench and second showerhead that is a hand held. Shower walls with minimal grout lines for easy maintenance are also often specified. If there was room, a separate tub.
  • Heated floors. They can be preprogrammed to come on so the bathroom is warm and ready before you use it in the morning.
  • Elements of Nature. Materials include stacked stone, wood, marble, natural light, even a place for plants!

To make the project more timeless, homeowners included universal design (decorative grab bars), including additional storage, and the fixtures, showerhead, and toilet that conserves water. It makes more sense to include that in the bathroom remodeling budget at the time of the project, than having to retrofit later.

Happy Bathroom Remodeling!
