You should be aware that the toilet is the most expensive room to remodel per square foot. It’s because you fit a lot within that little space: plumbing fixtures, tile, a bathtub, vanity and toilet. In actuality, $46.3 billion will be spent on bath remodels this season, according to the National Kitchen & Bath Association.
Replacing Your Vanity:
Everybody has had an experience with a dark,’70s nightmare. They often cost between $2,000 and $5,000, including installation, based on Improvenet.com. Stock cabinets of the shelf, such as those at home centres, are the cheapest priced–but have limited styles and finishes (and can begin as low as $500). Semi-custom versions you may order through manufacturers will provide you more choices — wood types, finishes, and dimensions — are more middle-0f-the-range. And custom cabinets will provide you with the maximum quality for your dollar. It is worth noting, however, that typically, countertops are sold individually — and they will put you back at least $2,000.
The shower/tub situation will be the centrepiece of most baths, which explains the reason why it may be the most expensive part. Containers begin at $140 and can run as large as $10,000 and over. The expense of a shower stall can vary considerably since the tile you select will determine a lot of the cost (see the graph ). Frameless glass shower doors, which cost $900 to $1,300, are more appealing than a shower curtain and make the room look larger. And the icing is a remarkable shower head: Costs here vary widely too, with the out-of-the-box choices costing approximately $50 and super-luxe, multi-head options costing closer to $2000.
Scraping The Boring Floors:
Vinyl and linoleum floors have come a long way during the past couple of decades, and they are the cheapest way to pay for your floor — averaging $1,450, based on HomeAdvisor. If you wish to splurge, an additional $675 to $1,045 will help you get in-flooring heating.
On A Budget?:
It doesn’t take plenty of cash to liven up the walls with a fresh coat of paint or brighten up the space with new light fixtures. If the tile on your shower is looking beautiful and the grout is splitting, bring the tiled living by removing and replacing the grout, which starts around $500. Some showers and tubs could be replaced with a brand new model for about $500.
