Interested in a Winnipeg bathroom renovation, but not sure how much you’ll have to pay for your project? In this article, Dash Builders will look at the factors that can affect bathroom renovation cost and how much you can expect to pay.
There is no “average” bathroom remodel
Unfortunately, it’s not possible to give you an “average” cost for a Winnipeg bathroom renovation. The cost of your project depends on the size of your bathroom, the extent of the work, the materials and fixtures you use, and other such factors.
A simple remodel could cost less than $1,000 for a few new fixtures and paint and if you do it yourself. However, a more expensive remodel created by professional contractors may come in at $15,000, and a complete overhaul could cost you more than $30,000. It all depends on the finishes and features you want.
The biggest factors that affect bathroom renovation cost in Winnipeg
Wondering what factors tend to have the biggest effect on the cost of a bathroom renovation in Winnipeg? Get a look below.
Bathroom renovation cost – sinks & countertops
Replacing a sink, vanity or countertop can be very expensive. You could pay anywhere from $100-$1,000 or more, depending on the quality and materials of the new unit.
Bathroom renovation cost – showers & baths
Showers and baths are typically the most expensive part of any bathroom remodel and can easily cost you anywhere between $1,500-$5,000 or more.
Bathroom renovation cost – flooring
Tile flooring is the most common in bathrooms and can cost anywhere between $5-$50 per square foot, not including installation. If you opt for heated flooring the cost can also increase substantially, but so does the comfort of the room. It all depends on what you want.
Bathroom renovation cost – toilets
Thankfully, toilets are relatively inexpensive to replace as far as labour goes, but the cost of a new toilet can still be significant – ranging from $100 to $750 or more. If you opt for special features like a heated seat or build-in bidet you can also expect to pay more.
Bathroom renovation cost – lighting
Lighting is another big factor when it comes to the cost of a bathroom renovation in Winnipeg, and it can be very expensive – particularly if new wiring needs to be installed or if it is found that knob and tube is present and needs to be removed.
Bathroom renovation cost – plumbing
If you need new plumbing in your bathroom, the cost of your project may rise dramatically. Especially if you are adding a bathroom to a space that was not previously one, or if the plumbing stack is not easily accessible.
