Budget Bathrooms

Custom showers like this one cost approximately $4,500.

Bathroom remodels typically cost $5,000 for standard selections in paint, a new sink and faucet, changing out the tub/shower, and replacing old flooring with linoleum or tile.

It’s easy to go over budget on materials and upgrades. Custom anything costs more than floor models. The faucet right next to the one you’re eyeing may add as much as $300 to the bill. Tile can cost as little as $5 and up to $35 a square foot. For instance, designing a specialty shower, instead of buying what’s in stock, can quadruple the price of the remodel (like in the photo above).

The best tips for budget bathrooms, and budget rooms in general:

  • Plan ahead.
  • Plan within your budget.
  • Plan what’s important when spending extra.
