Remodeling Costs for Large and Master Bathrooms

The cost of renovating a master bathroom can vary from under $10,000 to as much as $35,000 or more depending on the size of your master bathroom, your dreams and, of course, your budget. For starters, get an idea for what features and style you want and then focus in on your budget.

For bathroom features, build your ideas around the shower, tub and sinks. Are you looking for a separate walk-in shower with glass doors or a waterproof, open shower area? Do you want a nice, decorative tub to stand-alone on the floor or do you want it to be built into a nicely tiled frame? Most master baths feature two sinks. Do you prefer matching pedestal sinks or a large dual sink vanity that also provides shelving or storage? For style, are you looking for a modern, contemporary, open look or more of a warm or rustic look?

Bathroom remodeling costs must include the time and labor for the project to be properly installed by following a process that includes these main phases:

  • Demolition - the old tile, tub, shower and plumbing needs to be removed. Depending on the job and condition of the existing structures, this could also include removing old, damaged or rotted flooring or walls.
  • Preparation - reinforcement of floor, repair or building of walls, fitting the new plumbing as necessary, and installation of a shower pan. If a wet area or open shower is planned this would include installation of all the proper and waterproof Kerdi shower system products.
  • Installation - install new shower and tub as well as floor and wall tile. Install shower doors, dividers, glass walls as required.
  • Plumbing to Code - install new drains, faucets and fixtures.
  • Carpentry - depending on the project carpentry may be required to move walls, build half walls or install some cabinetry.
  • Finishing Touches - add lighting or fans and paint the trim and walls as desired.

Typically, the labor costs for bathroom remodeling are estimated and billed at either an hourly rate or a cost per square foot. For smaller projects many contractors require a minimum fee. Let’s look at some average costs for remodeling contractors.

  • Hourly Rates for Tile Installation - depending on the location of the project and the quality of the professional contractor hourly rates for plumbing, carpentry, electrical, or tile work can range from $45 per hour to $80 per hour.
  • Cost per Sq. Ft. for Tile Installation - Tile installation contractors often calculate labor costs based on the cost per square foot. Different types of tile require different preparation and installation techniques. For example, a standard ceramic tile is easier to install than more advanced designs that have patterns, borders, medallions or mosaics. Given these differences tile installation can typically range from a low of about $4 to $8 per sq. ft. for ceramic tile to $10 or $20 per sq. ft. for natural stone tile or more complex tile designs.
  • Minimum Job Fee - many remodeling contractors and tile installers will charge a minimum job fee such as $500 or $750 for smaller jobs to make sure they are compensated for their time and cost.
