Our primary bathroom in our current house makes the fourth bathroom remodel we have completed. Meaning ripped everything out down to the bare walls (or studs in some cases). Bathroom remodels rank high on adding value to your house for resale, as well as to the mental equity of having a nice place to scrub a dub. So they are typically tops on our priority list when we buy a home and start assessing what we need to do to improve it.
There are a million ways to spruce up your bathroom, but if you are looking into a full remodel it gets a little more complicated. There are many factors in any remodel, and depending on your DIY skills, the cost can vary greatly. If you aren’t able to do most of the work yourself, a full remodel is not only complicated, it’s also very expensive.
If you do a little googling you will find that the cost to remodel an average bathroom ranges anywhere from $10,000 to as much as $70k. Labor costs, materials used, and the quality of the fixtures you choose majorly affect the overall expenses. We spent time researching budget friendly materials that wouldn’t sacrifice on style, but would also make the renovation a little easier on our wallet. But far an away, DIYing most of the renovation was the biggest budget saver.
We had a unique situation that resulted in us having to RE-remodel our bathroom, see the mistakes we made here!. I’m going to break down what we spent for our primary bathroom (that still isn’t 100% completed) including the redo. We spent time researching budget friendly materials that wouldn’t sacrifice on style, but would make the renovation a little easier on our wallet.
