The material cost sounds high to me, but I do pretty basic old fashioned looking baths. I can't say about labor as it was part of a bigger jobs, but I did 2 baths for ~$1700 in material each. I supplied the materials other than gypboard, cementboard & plywood.

Resized Image



subway tile walls $200
pinwheel floor $100
Trim tiles $100
Americast porcelain on steel tub 250
36" euro porcelain vanity 270
36" beveled mirror inset cabinet 200
Cadet 3 toilet (awesome value, screw Toto) 130
faucet 70
Pfister showerset 109
Vanity light 36
Combo light vent 100
towel bars etc 50

Tub in this photo is not new, I made the mistake of not trusting the contractor that it was better to replace the cast iron. If you are the type to pay $1000 for a faucet, ignore my post, we live in different worlds.

Cory's numbers are pretty on.

$15k is your "more or less" number. Being in a city is going to drive things a bit higher than a job in the burbs.

Good luck!

Feel free to PM me if you need specific advice. It's like, my job or whatever.

"Every small job is five big ones waiting to happen." One of my contractor's guys put his foot through my plaster living room ceiling.

Yea, there's just so many things that can and do go wrong. Angle the sub-floor for the tub so it drains properly. Sweating pipes. God forbid if your toilet drainage isn't a 12". Have fun if you want a mosaic tile. And don't forget the joys of finding out you ordered a left-hand tub when you need a right-hand tub and you've humped it up 3 flights of stairs already.

Bathrooms suck up labor costs like few other projects can. You need: demolition, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, tile-laying, painting, and sometimes other trades in as well. And because it's a small area, you can only get in one guy at a time in most cases. Yours is a bit bigger, so you might actually luck out on that, but that's hard to say without being there and such.


I was going to say 20-30 - so I think Cory is on target. Not sure what happens to cost if you install one of those pre-fab tub units or only tile areas around wet.

Ditto that's a fair ballpark figure.

I've done 3 bathrooms myself (sometimes with a little help from friends for the heavy lifting) so I saved the labor cost but it was a ton of work. Every one of those bath jobs had unpleasant surprises which set me back on both time and expense. Even a "basic gut reno" is still custom work. A good crew might be able to pull it off in a week, but your mileage may vary widely.

Having done a gut reno in the last year, I would say that's a pretty accurate estimate.

Guys: how much a gut reno of a relatively small (8 x 8) bathroom should cost? Right now it has a bathtub with a shower and I would like to keep it that way. If anyone could give me an idea about ballpark costs of a) no frills, basic gut reno, and b)a bit more luxe version. Thx.
