Does $10k seem like a fair estimate for a bathroom reno? Its a 5x9 bathroom, everything is being replaced.

Any tile in bathroom other than shower?



10k is reasonable but make sure you are getting cement board in the tub area, mold resistant drywall in rest of room.



I just did mine and it came in at 18k with full italian ceramic in floor to ceiling 10x5 bathroom. Porcelain tile on floor. New tub, toilet, vanity, sink, granite counter top, 3 high hats installed and fan

no, only tile in the shower and the floors. Contractor said that there will be cement board, not sure about the drywall.

I just did 2 baths. 1 full gut, 1 'half' gut.

No plumbing changes on either. Some minor electrical adjustments on both. I sourced all the materials (with OK's from my contractor on fitment).

The full gut was our 'main' bath - 5x10. Ceramic subway tile on walls (up to ceiling in tub, halfway up on the rest), 'wood look' ceramic on floor. Metal tub. Real wood vanity. Moderately priced fixtures. New solid wood door. I painted the ceiling and walls myself. $16,000 total

The 2nd one was smaller, with only a stand up shower. This one we gutted the shower and floor, leaving the existing walls and ceiling. Wood look ceramic in the shower and floor (stone look for the actual shower floor). Custom frameless door. Reused vanity. New toilet and fixtures. $9,500 total ($1,600 of which was the custom shower door).

Relatively expensive, but 100% worth it!

10k is on the cheap end. I would be wary but ask to see another example of 10k from another client.

A lot also depends on the materials used. 10k is doable, but don't expect anything high-end.


I'm planning a bathroom reno (similar size), and will re-arrange some plumbing and electric. My budget will be $25k.
