How Much Does It Cost To Remodel or Build A Bathroom In Your Atlanta, Georgia Home?

Bathroom remodeling still remains one of the most popular home remodeling projects for not only Atlanta homeowners but homeowners across the country.

As a professional remodeling contractor we speak with homeowners on a daily basis who want to remodel their bathroom and the number question we are always asked is to give a “ballpark” or “rough” estimate for the project costs.

Please Understand… It’s extremely important you understand this article is just to serve as an example. It’s not going to be an official estimate on what your bathroom is going to cost you, but it’s going to give you a very rough idea and what to expect so you aren’t totally surprised when a remodeling contractor gives you a number.

Bathroom Remodeling Costs Are Based on Square Footage

Most home remodeling projects are based on the square footage of the space. Bathrooms are no exception, but they are however considerably more money per square foot than other projects, such as a basement remodel or a room addition. $250 – $500 or more per square foot is pretty common for professional remodeling contractors to charge to remodel a bathroom.

Why are bathrooms more expensive per square foot? Bathrooms are lots of work to put it mildly with several more layers to the construction process because moisture is involved. You also have the vanity, the toilet, the shower and bath and all the plumbing that must be worked around too. The bigger the bathroom is, the more expensive the remodeling project will be.

So let’s use our imagination to come up with some bathroom measurements… Let’s say you have a smaller bathroom that is only 82 square feet in size. If you’re paying in the mid-range of $250 per finished square foot you’re bathroom could potentially cost $20,500. That might seem like a large number to most homeowners, but remember this is a rough estimate, for mid-grade materials and a professional contractor doing all of the work.  This would be for new flooring, new paint, a new tiled shower and possibly a heated floor.

The price will go up as the size of the bathroom increases and the material choices get more luxurious. Want a heated tile floor? Want a barrier free tile shower? tiled walls? The price is obviously going to be more because of the additional work and materials involved.

Let’s look at a high end example if you have a bathroom on the larger size, or maybe you want to build a new bathroom in your basement of 146 square feet. For high-end luxury materials you could expect to pay anywhere from $380 – $700+ per square foot. 146 sq ft x $380 = $55,480. If you think that’s an expensive bathroom, they can still go up in costs from there!

Remember, these examples above are for a complete bathroom makeover, not just a single element of the bathroom. If you only wanted a new bathroom floor, or a new vanity or the installation of a walk-in tub your overall costs will be lower.  It’s definitely worth getting an estimate at least.

Remodeling My Bathroom Seems Very Expensive?

You may be already thinking the numbers quoted above sound very expensive. Maybe you’ve heard of a friend or neighbor doing it for less, or another “professional” contractor offering to do it for much less.
The pricing examples above (and they are only examples) would reflect having a true, licensed, insured professional remodeling contractor complete your project. Not someone masquerading as a professional.

Bathroom makeovers are not DIY projects and definitely not for someone who isn’t knowledgeable about bathrooms (think about mold!). While it’s easy enough to change the vanity or a add a new faucet it’s an entirely different ballgame to rip out and rebuild your shower.
