How Much Does a Bathroom Remodel Cost?

Oct 28, 2022

When we help our customers plan their bathroom renovation projects, there’s one question they almost always ask before anything else: How much does a bathroom remodel cost? Unfortunately, there’s not a simple, one-size-fits-all answer to that question.

The truth is that your bathroom remodeling project can cost significantly more or less than your neighbor’s project. Let’s take a closer look at the average remodeling costs in our area and which factors most impact how much you’ll pay for your new bathroom. 


What Is the Average Bathroom Remodel Cost in Michigan?

For starters, getting a ballpark range of bathroom remodeling costs in our area is helpful. According to Remodeling magazine, a mid range bathroom remodel in our area averages just over $27,000, while an upscale remodel can run over $82,000. This huge range can make budgeting for your remodel seem nearly impossible.

But, your project may not cost nearly that much! The simple fact of the matter is that the specifics of your project determine how much you’ll pay. 

Factors That Most Affect the Total Cost of Your Bathroom Remodel

So, which aspects of your project impact the total cost you’ll pay? Here are a few things to consider. 

The Materials You Choose

While you’re planning your project, one of the most important decisions you’ll make is which materials to use. While tile is a popular material when building a new shower, it’s not always the best option. Though eye-catching, tile is often a more expensive material. Beyond that, it’s notoriously hard to keep grout clean and tile is not always very durable. 

Here at BathWorks, we’ve found that many homeowners prefer high-quality acrylic bathtubs and showers. Acrylic is beautiful, easy to clean, and resistant to mold and mildew growth. Best of all, it’s extremely durable, so your bathroom looks great for years. 

Big vs Small Changes

Another factor that will impact the cost of your project is the kinds of changes you plan to make. If you want to completely change the layout of your bathroom, it will likely be very expensive. For example, if you want to move your shower to the other side of the room, you’ll have to pay for plumbing services in addition to the other remodeling costs. 

Fortunately, our team is here to help you change the look of your bathroom without breaking the bank. We can convert your tub into a shower or your shower into a tub so your bathroom is more functional without the need for a major renovation.

The Company You Hire

Finally, the contractor you hire for the job will determine the total cost you’ll pay. The unfortunate reality is that some contractors overcharge for projects simply because they can. That’s not how we operate at BathWorks. 

We believe that every homeowner should be able to transform their bathroom, which is why we offer special deals to help all of our customers save on their remodel. We’re also open and honest about our pricing, so you’ll never receive a surprise bill.
