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.
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.
Adding windows is essential, as it will also provide for a natural source of light in the daytime, but also makes the bathroom more breathable. However, they are a pricey solution, and instead of making a big hole in your wall to make room for a window, alternatives can be used. One example is the sun tube or the solar tube, which can be installed to give off solar light. They range from 10 inches to 20 inches in diameter and are easy to install, as only a small hole has to be made.
