Selecting a layout that is simple and works well with your current bathroom will help bring down costs significantly. This is because contractors won’t have to completely redo your piping, electric wiring, or anything else. Since the largest expense with a bathroom remodel is labor, this can save quite a lot of money.


The materials for the average small bathroom remodel will cost between $8,000 and $10,000. This includes new fixtures like a new toilet, new sink, and a new bathtub. It also includes the cost of new tiling, new cupboards, and a countertop for the sink.

The cost of your materials can go up quickly if you want any specialized fixtures or if you need the bathroom to be handicapped-accessible. If you need the bathroom to be handicapped-accessible, then the material costs can go up another $2,000 or $3,000 because they need to have special certificates.

Labor cost

On average, a bathroom remodeling job will cost you around twice as much as the materials cost you.

For a small bathroom of roughly 100 square feet, labor costs could run an average of $12,000 or $13,000 on the high end.

This would include the labor to add a new tile, completely install new fixtures, wiring and plumbing, and have everything inspected afterward. It is the most expensive part of the bathroom remodeling cost.

Because of the many townhouses and small apartments there are not many large bathrooms. This means that renovations have to take place in bathrooms with less square footage than a master bathroom.

However, that doesn’t stop homeowners from finding creative ways to take their small bathrooms and transform them into a area they’ve always wanted. The small space only limits accessories and the size of bathtubs or showers. It does not limit what they can have in terms of storage, vanity space, or even the types of showers and tubs.

Small bathrooms are very often in minimalist and modern styles. They allow for plenty of space in a bathroom without compromising on amenities. There can be a well-sized bath or shower with storage space, well-placed toilet, sink and vanity space. Color choices will depend on what homeowners are looking for, though most modern and minimalist styles stick to black, white and neutral colors. Accessories will add that accent color to finish it off. These rooms will look chic and spacious because they allow for plenty of movement while remaining comfortable and relaxing.
