How Much Does It Cost to Remodel a Bathroom?

Bathroom remodeling in CT doesn’t have to be an expensive task. If you want to remodel your bathroom, but don’t want to break the bank, then your dream bathroom can still be a possibility. Budgeting for a bathroom isn’t as hard as you may think, as long as you know which corners to cut.

According to Remodeling magazine, a bathroom remodel will recoup 65 percent of its cost at resale for mid-range remodels in the New Haven, CT area. Staying with the New Haven area estimates, the average job cost for a bathroom remodel is between $13,000 and $18,000. The resale value is roughly $10,000. An upscale bathroom job cost can run up to $50,000 and have an almost $20,000 resale value.
So how much does a bathroom remodel cost? The price of a bathroom remodel is determined by the following factors:


Good man power doesn’t come free. Contractors and construction workers can do an amazing job on a bathroom remodel, depending on how much money you want to spend. If they have major construction-related tasks, like an entire plumbing overhaul, then you will pay more for their services. If you stick to the bathroom’s original layout then your labor costs may not be as expensive. Keep in mind that bathroom renovations can take more time and work than you may expect.


Bathroom fixtures usually account for most of a bathroom remodel budget. Items like sinks, toilets and tubs can be expensive to buy and even more expensive to install. An easy way to cut bathroom remodel costs is to pick a more standard (but still durable) and less expensive alternative. We recommend talking to your contractor about bathroom fixture options to ensure that you make the best decision for your bathroom budget.


Tile prices for bathroom remodels don’t have to be expensive. You can limit the places where you have the tile installed, or opt for a less expensive tile option. If you don’t want to spend extra money for a lot of expensive tiles then you can use less tiles, as decorative accents or designs. Learn the pros and cons of different tiles and choose the right on for your space.


Carpentry work can range from bathroom cabinet installation or removal, door re-triming or installing a vanity. Not all carpentry costs are the same, and it is important to remember that a custom estimate by an experienced contractor is the best way to go. In general, a skilled carpenter or remodeler will charge anywhere from $20 to $35 an hour.


For your bathroom remodel you can choose a beautiful countertop for less than you would expect. Because the bathroom is generally the smallest room in the house, you don’t have to pay for large surface countertops. A single-sink countertop won’t require a lot of granite or marble, so you can splurge on your bathroom without feeling guilty.
Here’s how the National Kitchen & Bath Association breaks down the budget for a typical bathroom remodel:

  • Labor: 20 percent
  • Cabinetry and hardware: 16 percent
  • Fixtures: 15 percent
  • Faucets and plumbing: 14 percent
  • Countertop: 7 percent
  • Floor: 9 percent
  • Doors and windows: 4 percent
  • Walls and ceiling: 5 percent
  • Lighting and ventilation: 5 percent
  • Design fees: 4 percent
  • Other: 1 percent

You can cut bathroom remodeling costs by talking with your contractor about all of your options. For many homeowners the bathroom is a sanctuary and second only to the kitchen on people’s wish lists of rooms to remodel.
