How To Find Out The Average Bathroom Remodel Cost
The most simple way to find out the average bathroom remodel cost is to check out online resources (such as Home Advisor, Angie’s List, and articles like this) that have already done all the research for you! Of course, this will only go so far – you won’t be able to know the exact numbers for your unique bathroom unless you get a quote from the professionals, but it will give you a good idea of approximately how much you should budget and expect to spend on each part of your bathroom remodel.
Don’t be scared by higher numbers – remember that a bathroom renovation can add a lot of value to your home! Take a look at the budget breakdown below to learn about each part in more detail.
The Average Bathroom Remodel Costs Between $7,800 – $19,400
Your bathroom renovation may cost anywhere between $7,800 – $19,400 (or more or less!)
According to Home Advisor, the average bathroom remodel costs somewhere between $5,900 – $14,800 USD ($7,800 – $19,400 CAD). This price takes into consideration bathtubs, showers, cabinets, countertops, flooring, toilets, sinks, and lighting as well as labour fees. This large range is due to the fact that home Advisor takes into account low and high-end renovations on each end of the spectrum.
These numbers are fairly consistent among other resources, with Angie’s List citing the average bathroom renovation to be between $9,600 – $11,000 USD ($12,500 – $14,400 CAD). Reno Assistance shows the prices specifically for a GTA bathroom renovation, and lists the average for a small bathroom to be $10,000 – $15,000 CAD, and for a medium-sized bathroom $15,000 – $20,000 CAD.
Considering all of these numbers, how will know how much your bathroom renovation will cost? After all, there is a pretty large difference in budget between $7,800 and $19,400!

Bathroom Remodel Budget Breakdown
The largest determining factor of your bathroom remodelling budget is whether you choose to go with low range or high range additions. The plumbing fixtures, such as your new bathtub, shower, sink, and toilet, will end up costing a large portion of your budget. However, keep in mind that you can mix and match items and choose some high and some low-end options.
Low – high range average costs for plumbing; Information from Home Advisor
Your cabinets will often take up a large portion of your budget, as well as your countertops. You can choose to go with lower-range options, which may only cost you around 2,000 in total, or you can go all out and spend 13,000+ on cabinet and countertops alone.

Creating Your Bathroom Remodel Budget
Take some time to find out what’s more important to you and what you are willing to spend more (or less) on
As you can see above, there are huge price variations depending on your personal preferences (do you want all high end? all low end? somewhere in between?) as well as the size of your bathroom, your preferred style, and how many items you are adding or renovating.
For example, some homeowners choose to keep their existing toilets and bathtubs while renovating – that can end up saving thousands of dollars on your total costs. Other homeowners want to remodel everything, but choose to go with lower-end fixtures, which can also save you a lot in the end.
From the “mix and match” numbers, you can also see that there are large variances depending on what you choose to mix and match! For example, in #3, we see that choosing only high-end cabinets and countertops and the rest of your items low or mid-range will end up costing above average, but will still be well below the all high-end range of $28,500.
The best way to create a budget for your bathroom renovation is to do your research and determine what is most important to you. If it is important that you have all high-end items, you may need to wait longer to get your renovation done, and that’s okay! It’s best not to rush such a big decision.
If you are okay with lower-end items or a mix of some high and low, then it’s a good idea to determine what you are willing to part with and what are things you are not willing to sacrifice on. This can help you determine your final budget and ensure you end up with a finished bathroom that you are not just satisfied with – but one that you love!
