What Will It Cost to Renovate My Bathroom?
If your bathroom needs a refresh but the idea of spending a fortune puts you off, we have good news for you. There’s no need to break the bank when redecorating or remodelling, particularly with our 0% finance on bathrooms.
Average costs of renovating a bathroom in 2021
Checkatrade calculated that the typical cost to replace a bathroom in the UK would cost around £4,500, ranging from £1,500-£7,500 depending on style choices and budget restraints.
Of course, this all depends on the size of the space, fixtures and overall quality of the remodel, which could end up becoming significantly pricier depending on the project. By taking the DIY approach, you not only have more control over your budget, but you will eliminate labour costs, which cuts down expenses by a huge chunk.
Benefits of a new bathroom
- Happiness - Surroundings can have a huge impact on overall mood and happiness, so undertaking a home improvement project can help to increase feelings of contentment – especially when you see the results!
- Add value - By planning a home improvement project, you’re not just enhancing the enjoyment you’ll get from the space, but are potentially adding value to the overall cost of your home – a benefit in the long run.
- Decrease clutter - By improving the storage space in your bathroom, you can decrease clutter and store extra supplies, freeing up counter tops and even space elsewhere in your home.
- Improve fixtures - In a smaller space, you can easily get away with using a smaller amount of higher-priced materials. Invest in a few select pieces for high impact while spending less.
- Save water - Something we should all be striving to do is save water. By installing energy-efficient faucets, showerheads or water-saving septic tanks, you can do your bit while enjoying your washroom.
How much can you afford to do?
The first thing to do is determine how much you can afford to spend on redecorating your bathroom, as this will help you determine the extent of the changes you can make.
Low budgets of £1,500 or less
Focus on cosmetic changes, like new fixtures, storage, lighting or a fresh lick of paint. Don’t underestimate the impact of a visually appealing focal point, like a dramatic mirror or a wall decal.
Higher budgets of £1,500 or more
Focus on more complex changes. Install a new bath, a bigger shower or an upgraded toilet. You could also look at having the bathroom extended or having a skylight built-in.
