Can you give me a general idea how much it would cost renovate a small bathroom. I will supply the vanity, toilet is new. Would like new tub, shower, tile floor and around tub, install vanity.

I know this is difficult just a general idea so I know if I can proceed.

Hi Ken, Renovating a small bathroom (4 piece) can start at about $6,000.00, including the fixtures. A much bigger part of the job is the repairs and preparations to install the fixtures and finishes you want. It is the invisible stuff that can add up. You will probably have to bring your electrical up to current code as well.

If you are serious about it, you should put your requirements in the "post your project" section so you can get some local contractors to respond and give you more accurate numbers for your situation.

Good Luck with it!

Hi Ken.

Your area will heavily dictate what the going rate will be. I have never touched a bathroom (4 pc) that was less than $9000-$10000. Depending on the age of the house and if there was any hack and slashery done fro previous home owners or contractors, I usually like to gut the bathroom straight down to the studs. Not every project needs this, but i find its much more effective when it comes to the end results and what you want your project to become.

Good luck!

So many jobs we work on have massive budgets. If your looking for the bling and all the bells and whistles plan on spending between $400 - $2000 per square foot.

An average bathroom 5'x8' (40 square) in most reno's costs between

$16,000 - $80,000

I can not remember the last time we build a bathroom for under $20,000
