Cost of Bathroom Renovations
The first step as with any home renovation job is to make a list of all the items that need to be done. This list should include everything from demolition work, electrical works, flooring replacement and installation, painting, heating, and cooling work; the whole lot. Be prepared, to be honest about what needs doing on your list and then get quotes for each individual job. This way you will know exactly what costs are involved in your bathroom renovation plans before you start spending money on anything.
When considering new bathroom renovations, don't forget that there are many different options available; freestanding baths vs shower enclosures or wet rooms can dramatically alter your plumbing costs. If you already have suites that fit in the space available in your bathroom you'll find that replacement costs are less than if you had to buy whole new units.
Before any work starts, try and get a rough estimate of what your renovation will cost by getting estimates from at least three different tradespeople. These quotes should include prices for labor and materials only, ask in writing to be clear exactly what is included, and always get something guaranteed in writing even if it's an e-mailed quote back.
Average Cost of New Bathroom
When choosing the design of your new bathroom, it is advisable to research all potential options so that you can make an informed decision regarding materials and overall layout. Most bathrooms will require planning permission before building work begins although there are exceptions. Below is a list of considerations that will help you to calculate the cost of your renovation project:-
Quality of fixtures - cheap fittings may not last as long as more expensive ones.
The size and shape of the room - small or oddly shaped rooms may be difficult to fit with standard furniture.
Planning permission - types of renovations do not require permission include painting the walls and replacing floor, wall or ceiling tiles.
Type of heating - traditional methods such as airing cupboards take up valuable space while radiator systems mean extra pipework at additional cost.
Replacement costs for old fittings - if many items need replacing then it may be cheaper to remove them all and start again with new products rather than purchasing replacement parts.
Repairing existing damage - this can sometimes be done relatively cheaply but in badly damaged rooms repairs could end up costing almost as much as renovation work.
Flooring - many bathrooms are tiled so choosing durable materials is important if they are to stay looking good during heavy use. Tiles should also be slip-resistant for safety purposes when wet.
Lighting - new lighting costs can vary dramatically depending on the type of fittings used, more energy-efficient bulbs might cost more but would save money over time.
Decoration - in some bathrooms existing wallpaper could be removed and painted instead for a much cheaper renovation.
Renovating a bathroom costs much more than installing an entirely new one because there is usually much work to do when restoring old fittings; these may need to be taken out and replaced with completely new ones or repaired and refitted:
Plumbing work - the water supply and drainage lines must be checked for damage, possible leaks, and adequate pressure.
Flooring costs - old floor coverings may need removal and new ones fitted so this adds to the cost of renovation.
Tiling costs - some remodelling work may be needed on the walls before tiling commences, an important factor in determining how much you pay for your bathroom renovation.
Decorative finishes - new paint or wallpaper will add extra expense, as will specialist tiles including mosaics, slate effect types of vinyl, or wall murals.
Other extras - sometimes you can justify spending on luxury items such as heated towel rails or spa baths.
Fitting costs - if you are having a new bathroom suite or toilet, this will add to the labour cost of performing the renovation work. DIY enthusiasts have an advantage here because they buy these items in ready-made kits which can be fitted more quickly than bespoke items.
Finishing touches - some people like to make their bathroom totally unique with wood-effect vinyl flooring, for example.
