Find out what expenses to expect in your bath renovation and learn how to manage your budget.
You set aside an ample budget for your bathroom remodel, but you're probably wondering how much of that goes toward labor and what percentage should be dedicated toward features like lighting, flooring and appliances? The one mistake you want to avoid is blowing the budget on intricate tile work and compromising on the shower or sink. In the bathroom, the fixtures should be your No. 1 priority.
As you work on a budget with your designer or general contractor, ask the firm to supply a breakdown. There are variables depending on the existing bathroom, the scope of the project (complete remodel or facelift?) and the local economy.
The Kitchen & Bath Association (KBA) breaks down bathroom remodeling costs like this:
Design fees: 4%
Cabinetry and hardware: 16%
Lighting and ventilation: 5%
Doors and windows: 4%
Walls and ceilings: 5%
Faucets and plumbing: 14%
In the end, your budget breakdown will depend on what your liifestyle is and how much you want to spend.
