The Bathroom Remodel Cost In Central Wisconsin

A bathroom remodel can range from $20,000 to $60,000 and more. That price mostly depends on the size, complexity, material choice, preexisting damage, and the age of your bathroom. 

These prices are averages and can change depending on the factors discussed in the next section.

Here are some average bathroom remodeling costs and what goes into them.

What Factors Influence The Bathroom Remodel Cost?

No bathroom is like the next. So far, every space we’ve worked on was different in its own way. Maybe one bathroom had no flooring issues but the other had rotten wood floors. Another might’ve had a problem with mold, while the next simply needed a new paint job and some new lighting fixtures.

In other words, there are some factors that will impact the final cost of your bathroom remodel, and we’ll discuss them right now.

Bathroom Remodel Size

The size of a bathroom can have a large impact of the final price for remodeling it. The larger the bathroom, likely the more materials, labor, and time it will take. The smaller bathroom will likely require less materials, less labor and therefor, less time. 

However, smaller bathrooms can still have higher prices depending on the materials you choose, and the amount of work being done to it. 

For example a 5 x 8 bathroom with a tiled walk in shower, tile floor, new vanity, and new plumbing and lighting fixtures could wind up being a larger investment than a 12 x 10 master bathroom with a tiled tub surround and some new flooring.

Bathroom Remodel Complexity

How complex your bathroom remodel is can alter the price substantially. 

The size of the tile in your shower, the design of shower, and the updated layout of your bathroom are good examples of things that cause complexity in a bathroom remodel. 

Less complex bathrooms updates include changing the colors or styles of things while keeping everything in existing locations.

Bathroom Remodel Material Choices

Think of the difference of an apartment vs a “forever home”. Likely, in a rental you will find materials that are less expensive such as sheet vinyl, shower inserts, and standard plastic feeling fixtures. 

In a “forever home” you may find heated tile floors, a fully tiled walk in shower, heated towel bars, and premium shower fixtures such as a rainfall shower head and body sprayers. 

You can opt for stock, semi-custom, or fully custom features which can all have an impact on the final investment. You can also get your features from Lowe’s, Home Depot, or more quality brands like Kohler (who we personally love).

Bathroom's Preexisting Damage & Age

If your bathroom has water damage, mold, or hasn’t been maintained properly for some time, this is likely going to increase the cost. 

When we demo showers, walls, and flooring in bathrooms we do at times find water damage, mold, and other things that cause harm to your house and your health. No worries, if we find this, we will have a conversation with you and decide how to best proceed.

Older bathrooms tend to have that outdated layout/feel, like that fully tiled in jet tub taking up half of the bathroom. While newer bathrooms tend to have a good flow where you just want to update the feel and colors. 

This makes things much easier for us and saves on costs.
