How much should it cost approx. to renovate a bathroom?
Ok I have FINALLY gotten an estimate after I asked about the jack and jill bathroom in my townhouse last time. I am still waiting for another estimate, but the first one I got is way more than I expected.
The estimate includes changing the vanities (60" & 72" repectively), bathtub, stone countertops/ bath wall, faucets, toilet, flooring (tile floor), frosted glass doors, 2 regular 6 panel interior doors, 1 new sliding closet door, adding lighting and ventilation fan.
There's nothing fancy that I requested, and NO changes in plumbing is needed. But still, the estimate is almost 30K including labor and material!!!
I've asked people before and their renovation runs around 20K at most (either bathrooms or kitchens). And our bathroom isn't that big and no change of plumbing location is needed. So how such should that run approximately?
btw, my in-laws just renovated tiny bathroom (even including change of plumbing location because they added a shower in their half bath) and that just cost them 6k. So... hearing that the estimate of our bathroom (ok to be fair it's bigger than their tiny bathroom but still I expected 15k at most?) is close to 30K is just insane.
So sorry for my rant. But I really want to know... how much should this run usually? I'm having another guy to come in for an estimate this Saturday, hope I won't hear any bad news again.... :(. Honestly, if it's 30k for some mostly facelift job, I'd rather find another house and just move... some day...
Can my dream of living in a more relaxing bathroom with NO carpet come true???
