The Biggest Costs Of Bathroom Remodeling

Large Costs In Bathroom Remodeling

If you are working on a bathroom remodeling project, you likely have a budget you need to meet. In order to meet the budget, you have to spread the costs out throughout the room while still getting the look and functionality you want from the project. There are plenty of ways you can cut back on the expenses in order to meet your budget. Take a look at some of the most costly items in bathroom remodeling and you can decide where to cut corners first.

Moving Plumbing

If at all possible, you will want to leave your plumbing where it is. As long as your bathroom functions well in its current layout, leave the plumbing in place. If you want to move the toilet, sink, or shower, you are looking at expensive plumbing costs. Unless it is vital to the overall bathroom remodeling process, leaving your plumbing where it is can help you cut back on expenses.

Cabinetry And Countertops

The cabinets and countertops in your bathroom make up another large cost. Choosing the right cabinetry and countertops can help you cut back on expenses. Perhaps you can go with laminate countertops, for example, that look like high-end marble or granite, but cost much less. Or you could refinish your old cabinets to make them look new and fresh without having to buy something new and expensive. Any of these cost-effective ideas can help you finish the project with the look you want without a high cost.


You wouldn’t think that lighting would cost so much, but the fixtures in your bathroom remodeling project can take 15% of the budget or more. You can get around this in a number of ways. First, you could use the old fixtures and clean or spruce them up. Second, you could get fixtures from a secondhand store that can add beauty to your space without the price tag. Or third, you can simply be extra careful in the choices you make so you don’t get fixtures that cost an arm and a leg.


The bathroom remodeling project can also put quite a bit into the flooring in the room. You will want to consider flooring very carefully because you want something durable that can hold up to heat and moisture, but you also want something that looks nice. Getting tile or laminate flooring is a consideration to cut back on costs and maintenance while getting the look you want.
