Good morning,

You will find that a total bathroom renovation with quality workmanship and materials will range somewhere between 11k to 15k. However having said that, some contractors might do it slightly cheaper. It will depend on a few variables such as the quality of the materials being used which will dictate final price.

On average our bathroomrooms with a tile surround and a few custom finishes are between 11k to 16k.

Hi there,

There are many factors to consider when renovating any space. For example, what is the age of your home....could there be asbestos? What is the exterior finish of your home- it's a lot more work to replace a window that has to be removed from a stucco house, rather than say a vinyl house. Is your bathroom fan vented through the roof...will that need to be done?

Finishes for your bathroom also can affect the cost of a bathroom renovation by thousands.

Having said all this- the average renovation for a bathroom that size would range from $12000-$15000.

There is a tremendous cost fluctuation in Bathroom renovations due to materials and finishing verities.

For example, you receive a cost estimate of $15,000, this cost allocating $1,200 for a vanity.

You can choose a vanity that costs $3,000, automatically, you are over the budget by $1,800.That way costs may add up very quickly.

Therefore, my advice to potential customers is:

*Get at list three quotes.

*Know exactly what is included in each quote.

*Try to allocate about 15%-20% more then you budgeted for.

To respond to your request.

We will propose labour only which is around $8000-9000.

Since we don't have any design in hand also we don't know your taste.

Please note the age of the house and type of existing material can effect the price.

A bathroom of that size and work involved, once you have all the materials and work involved, don't surprised if it comes in around $8,000 - $10,000.

That's if you want a bathroom that will last the test of time of course :)

Hope that helps,

It seems like a full gut and renovate a complete bathroom. This would cost around $7500 labour and building materials and you can buy whatever tiles / fixtures you are looking for

Hi L, a typical bathroom 5 ft by 8 ft 40 sq ft can range from $7,500 to $15,000. There is a lot of variables with bathrooms If you're not moving the location of any bathroom fixtures, custom with or without a niche and bench , in floor heat, tiles that you select. Custom vanity or store-bought vanity. I strongly recommend whatever contractor you go with you ask him or his plumber recommendations before buying bathroom fixtures faucets Etc.

Thanks for the feedback. I really just want a simple functional, clean, updated washroom (nothing fancy). I'm budgeting for about $9000. Any suggestions on end of the line tile sell off sites? I am going to research materials.

I tell my clients to try and get the vanity and etc themselves, as they can sometimes get better deals then a contractor, plus it allows them to choose there material and design certain aspects of the bathroom themselves. this way price differs quite a bit. Happy renovations!!!
