Estimating Your Costs

WA Assett have been renovating bathrooms for over 20 years. With this experience, we say if a renovation company can give you a quote over the phone or with a short visit to site then they have not taken every factor into account and have simply generalised the cost of your bathroom renovation. To calculate the average cost of a complete bathroom renovation for 2018, based on survey information, many factors need to be taken into consideration.

The typical bathroom renovation buyer spends an average of $15,500 to $16,000. For example, the price of a small bathroom renovation could be under $10,000, while a commercial renovation could be over $50,000. This means the “average cost” can be deceptive and must not be generalised. The best way to budget for your new bathroom is to make an estimate based on the size of your bathroom and the inclusions you want.

The overall dimensions of your bathroom are a major factor in the cost of your renovation, but since so much of a bathroom is tiled, the cost for floor and wall tiling will also be significant since tiles are priced by the square metre. Tiles vary in price from $20 to $150 per square metre. Higher priced tiles will include a higher quality ceramic or porcelain material. The tiler’s rate will vary too, from under $50 per square metre for a simple job to $150 per square metre or more for a detailed tiling job.

Other major costs include:

  • Shower fittings and a shower enclosure
  • Vanity Mirror
  • Ventilation
  • Windows
  • Plumbing upgrades
  • Painting
  • Toilet
  • Bathtub
  • Vanity and sink
  • Lighting
  • Ceiling

The cost of a bath alone can vary from around $450 for an acrylic tub to $2700 or more for a freestanding stone tub. You’ll find similar price differences for toilets, sinks and shower enclosures.
