Get an INSTANT estimate of the cost to remodel a typical bathroom in your zip code! An upscale remodel includes expanding the room an additional 8 square feet into existing space, adding a window, moving fixtures such as the toilet and replacing them with high-end models, a 4-X-6-foot tiled shower with a shower wall, a bidet, stone countertops in the vanity with two sinks, linen closet, tile floor, lighting, an exhaust fan and other amenities.
A basic showerhead can cost as little as $15.00, and a higher-end model complete with bells and whistles can cost as much as $600.00. Installation costs will vary depending on the features of the showerhead (temperature memory, aromatherapy, etc.), but it’s safe to assume that you’ll pay the average plumbers’ rate of about $50.00 an hour.
Although these figures give ballpark estimates for your own bathroom remodel cost or bathroom addition cost, it’s important to remember that prices vary based on individual project specifications, the quality of materials used, and the Chicago North Shore area remodeling company with which you are contracting.
An ugly, poorly maintained bathroom will have the potential buyers lowering their pricing expectations disproportionate to the amount it would cost to renovate it. A buyer purchasing a renovated house has expectations that certain things are in good shape – that’s why they’re buying a house that’s already been renovated.
This doesn’t mean that you will make an additional 80% off of your bathroom remodeling project, it means that you will get back 80% of the money that you invested into it. In other words, if your bathroom remodel cost $10,000, you should get at least $8,000 back on your original investment of $10,000.
