Remodeling costs of a small bathroom. A small bathroom remodel is usually less expensive than larger bathrooms as they have less space, which means fewer materials will be required, and they will usually have a lower price range as lesser amounts or smaller sizes are required. If you plan to change the whole layout of your bathroom, through maybe increasing the square footage of the bathroom, this will increase the costs of the bathroom remodel. This will require changing electrical connections, adding more flooring and plumbing, which will increase the labor cost.
Before installing your new shower stall, you will have to tear apart the existing fixtures. Usually, people hire professionals for the teardown phase, which can be as costly as $1000. By tearing down some of the fixtures yourself, you can save some of the bathroom remodeling cost. However, this also requires a lot of thought and planning, as you will need accurate tools such as a sledgehammer, a crowbar as well as a claw hammer.
Another method of reducing costs is through purchasing ready to assemble cabinets for your bathroom vanity. You can later add a custom look to them by refacing the cabinet doors and adding high-end hardware, rather than getting the whole cabinet custom made. Simplicity is key, is a phrase that almost always stands its ground. It will definitely save money if you maintain the simple and basic outlook of your bathroom. Moving the tub or shower and especially the toilet requires a lot of plumbing changes and hence increases cost.
