If you plan to do it on your own, then you’re looking at around 10% to 30% savings on a DIY master bathroom remodeling. Still, that depends on the materials you’ll be using for the project. That said, we recommend that you think long-term when choosing some of these materials since you won’t be renovating your master bath every year.

What are the factors affecting the cost of a master bathroom remodel?

Layout and Plumbing

If you’re on a budget, we recommend that you keep the old layout and plumbing of your master bathroom. The professional fees of a plumber are rising today, so it will drastically increase your remodeling cost.

What you can do, is to check for any damages to your plumbing, and then replace those old pipes with new ones. But as for the layout, just keep them to avoid the extra cost of moving them.

Bathroom floors

When you have a large floor area for your master bath, that can up your budget for the renovation. So, the most common and affordable bathroom flooring materials you can have are ceramic, porcelain, and linoleum tiles. They have reliable water resistance and durability.

If you go for their standard designs, then the price will be at a minimum. But if you want those with intricate patterns, then your tile expense will go up. So far, for your flooring installation, the cost will be around $1,500 to $5,000.

Lighting and electrical works

Proper lighting is important for remodeling master bathroom. You can see yourself and avoid accidents like slipping since you don’t notice the floor is slippery.

Installing beautiful light fixtures can also up the aesthetics of your bathrooms. You can choose those that match the walls and floors of your space. So, the average cost of installing new lighting is between $150 to $800 per installation.

As for the electrical work, that will cost you around $50 to $100 per hour. If the electrical connections of your bathrooms haven’t been checked for years, then we recommend you hire a professional to check and replace them.
