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.
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.
High-end showers cost more, almost as much a $6000. This includes buying and installation, shower doors, the floor as well as the walls. A standard tub/shower combo costs about $500-$1000. It is no secret that the place where you groom yourself the most is in the bathroom, therefore perfect lighting is essential. It is appropriate to have a single overhead light, as individual light fixtures cost about $40-$100, and they may even have built-in fans for ventilation.
