Did you know that the average Bathroom renovations packages cost between $5,000 all the way up to $35,000? This depends on the scope of the project, the types of materials that will be used, the bathroom size and the contractor that you hire. The best option and preferable way to go about a bathroom renovation is to engage the services of a professional bathroom renovation company for a complete bathroom package. We have put together what you can expect if you choose a complete bathroom renovation package that ranges up from $7,000.
⦁ Things to consider beforehand:
Getting a full bathroom renovation on a budget takes careful planning. There are a few things to consider before you start. Structural work forms the foundation of your bathroom and we’ve seen clients damage it by attempting a DIY renovation. We strongly discourage DIY bathroom renovations. It always ends up more expensive as you may not need to buy completely new fittings; where we could have refurbished the ones you already have and use that money elsewhere.
Look at your floor plan and decide which key features you want to change. Keep these to a minimum and adjust in a way that will not involve new plumbing or demolishing any existing part of the bathroom as this will increase the price of your bathroom renovation.
⦁ Material and labour costs:
Typically, a complete bathroom package that costs $7,000 is considered to be a budget renovation. It will include material and labour costs. Labour costs vary from state to state. It is a good idea to look for a renovation specialist that offers budget renovations for recommendations so that labour costs do not take a big percentage of your renovation price.
Labour costs will be for plumbers, electricians, tiling, waterproofing, a carpenter and a house painter. It is also important to choose materials that are easy to install and are decently priced so that you can keep your labour and material costs down. With adequate research and planning you can have both and still stay under budget.
⦁ New bathroom features:
Speak to your bathroom specialist about which bathroom features you can get. Budget bathtubs that are acrylic cost between $300 and $500. A basic toilet costs approximately $250 and a budget vanity can cost below $200. Other fittings such as basins, taps, towel rails shower screens and bathroom lighting can be included as well.
You may not be able to get all the fittings you would like but you can choose three to four of the ones you really want to give your bathroom the revamp you desire. The trick is to shop around and look for reasonably priced fixtures. This may take some time, but it will help you save a lot of money and get more fixtures as well.
