Category: Bathroom Remodeling

Have you been thinking about changing up your bathroom? Maybe your family has grown and you simply don’t have enough room anymore. Perhaps your needs have changed, and you find that you rarely use the bathtub anymore, but could certainly use a larger shower. Or you might have found yourself looking at the old vanity, the dated shower and the toilet that no longer works as well as it should and started thinking that it all has to go – all of it! Right down to the walls, to start with something fresh and new.

If you’re considering remodeling your Los Angeles bathroom this year, you’re in the right place. MDM Custom Remodeling, Inc. can provide you with the services you need, from the initial planning to the final inspection. But before you dive in, take some time to look at your budget and figure out exactly what you can afford in your bathroom remodel. Understanding the remodeling costs in Los Angeles in 2023 can help you plan well and choose the fixtures, finishes, and materials that matter the most to you.

Let’s start by looking at the size of the project.

Size Plays a Huge Factor in Your Bathroom Remodeling Costs in Los Angeles

Of course, it makes sense that the size of your bathroom relates to the overall cost of your project – the larger the bathroom, the larger the price. Right? Well, not exactly.

What matters is not necessarily the square footage of the bathroom but rather, the number of fixtures you include in the space. As a general rule of thumb, the more fixtures you include, the greater the cost. You can have a quite spacious bathroom but if there is only a single-sink vanity, toilet, and walk-in shower, you are likely going to pay less than for a smaller bathroom with twice the fixtures.

To put that in perspective:

A half-bathroom is typically the lowest cost bathroom remodel, with only one or two fixtures – just a sink and a toilet. A full bathroom adds in another fixture, the bathtub or shower, with a total of three to four fixtures. Master bathrooms usually have two sinks, and deluxe bathrooms often have a separate shower and bathtub in addition to the other fixtures – there can easily be at least five fixtures, possibly more. That’s why a large, deluxe bathroom remodel will almost always cost more than remodeling a half-bath.

How Materials Affect Your Bathroom Remodeling Costs in 2023

The “finish level” of your remodel refers to the quality of the fixtures, finishes, and materials in your bathroom. This takes into account everything from your wall treatments and flooring to your choice of showerheads and faucets. Here are the most common finish types:

  • Budget options: These are usually the materials you find at your local home improvement store. This can include single-sink vanities, a variety of affordable tile, basic fixtures by names like Moen and Delta, and toilets, alcove bathtubs, and shower surrounds.
  • Mid-grade: These are higher-end items that you might be able to pick up at a home improvement store but would more than likely have to go to a more specialized place to do it, such as a kitchen and bath store. Look for names like Signature Hardware, Kohler, and American Standard.
  • High-end: These can include much nicer materials you can buy from a retailer or some custom options made just for you. Artistic Tile, Robern, and Brizo are common names for these more stately options.
  • Luxury: This is where you can go all-out with the most luxurious pieces you can imagine. The price tag is hefty but so is the customization. Names like Lefroy Brooks and THG Paris are good places to begin, but luxury could also mean truly custom from a master craftsman in the local area.

Budget options for your bathroom can run into the hundreds or even low-thousands of dollars, while luxury options could run into the tens of thousands for a single fixture!

When you’re looking at your bathroom remodeling costs in Los Angeles in 2023, let MDM Custom Remodeling, Inc. go over all the options with you and work within your budget to create the bathroom that is right for you. We can help you understand your options and guide you to mixing and matching them for a remodel that can keep you under budget but still provide a few show-stopping pieces.

Scope Matters When Remodeling Your Bathroom in Los Angeles

There are a few options when you remodel your bathroom. You don’t have to take it down to the bare studs – you can remodel certain parts of the bathroom instead, such as focusing only on a new shower but leaving the toilet and vanity alone. Let’s break down your options:

  • Small Scale Remodel. This remodel is exactly what it sounds like – a remodel on one part of the bathroom, such as replacing the bathtub with a walk-in shower or a bath/tub combination. This remodel might require work beyond the replacement, such as necessitating new flooring or wall treatments.
  • Rip and Replace. This is a full renovation that takes everything out of your bathroom and replaces it with all new fixtures and materials. The layout remains the same, so you don’t have to move around any plumbing or electrical wiring. This works great if you like the configuration of your bathroom right now but the fixtures are dated and need a refresh.
  • Gut Renovation. This is the mother of all renovations. It requires not only pulling everything from the existing bathroom but might also include taking down walls, moving around plumbing and electrical lines, and completely changing the layout of the space. In other words, you’re removing the bathroom entirely and starting with a blank canvas.

A gut renovation is much more involved than a full renovation and thus, there are many steps you must take before you even begin. This includes obtaining professional design services and permits. Here at MDM Custom Remodeling, Inc., our one-stop shop provides you with the services you need to make your dream bathroom a reality.

Overall Costs for Your Bathroom Remodel in Los Angeles in 2023

Before we break down the individuals parts of your remodel, you might be wondering what a good average cost might be for what you want to do. Let’s take a look:

  • A budget remodel, going with handsome yet affordable options, can run about $18,000. 
  • A mid-grade remodel, where you choose some budget options and some show-stopping additions, can run around $28,500. 
  • A high-end remodel, in which you look for items that are top-of-the-line and go with attractive interior design options, can cost $40,500 and up.

Keep in mind that these costs do not include finishing materials and any city permit fees that might be required.

Bathroom Remodeling Services and Your Cost in Los Angeles

Some homeowners choose to piecemeal the work and go with a separate design firm, architect, general contractor, and the like. Here at MDM Custom Remodeling, Inc., we take the guesswork and trouble out of finding multiple companies to do the job. We can work closely with you to design the bathroom you want to see, talk about the options that might fit into your budget, help you obtain the necessary permits (if you need them), and handle the construction of your new bathroom – all with one contact that starts with a free consultation.

Breaking Down Your Bathroom Remodel

If you’re not quite sure what sort of remodel you want, consider each section of your bathroom and decide what you want to do with it. Do you like the walls but hate the floor? Do you enjoy your bathtub as it is but the shower leaves a lot to be desired? From simply replacing the vanity with something nicer or tearing out the entire bathroom to start fresh, MDM Custom Remodeling, Inc. can help you choose which elements to keep and which to take away. Let’s break down the bathroom, piece by piece.

The Vanity

You have several options for a vanity. The lowest cost is a pre-fabricated option, such as what you might find at a local home improvement store. You can choose one that has a countertop already with it or one that requires you to choose a separate countertop. While these are affordable and certainly do the job, you have very limited customization for the piece. You can choose between those that have one sink or two. These vanity options typically run between $300 and $2,000.

If you want a vanity that is longer than six feet, has more than two sinks, or has specially-designed cabinets underneath, you’ll need to go with a custom option. These start at $2,000 and go up from there – depending upon the material you choose, the cost could go up to as high as five figures.

Creating Your Shower

This can be one of the most expensive parts of your bathroom remodel. If you are doing a full gut of the bathroom for your remodel, you can opt to change up the shower however you please. That means you can choose anything from a corner shower to a bathtub/shower combo to a walk-in shower, depending upon the space you have available.

As you might imagine, a prefabricated shower surround is much more affordable. Though these are usually made of fiberglass, they can mimic other materials and look quite good doing it. It can often be installed for less than $1,000. However, you can go a more expensive route with tile on the walls and/or the shower floor. In general, the smaller the tile and the larger the shower, the more expensive the labor costs will be.

Other materials, such as marble or natural stone, take your shower to a higher-end level and can cost in the tens of thousands.

If You Include a Bathtub

Not every bathroom includes a bathtub – a bathroom with only a shower is a quite popular option. But those who want a luxurious master bath experience, have children in the home, or have trouble with mobility will want to ensure there is a bathtub in the house. A bathtub is also a great idea if you intend to sell the home in the future.

If you’re worried about affordability, keep in mind that a shower/bathtub combination is likely not going to cost much more than a bathtub itself – assuming that the bathtub is an alcove style or similar, where it meets the wall where the plumbing will be. You can expect this to run anywhere from $500 to $2,000, but likely on the lower end.

However, a stand-alone tub is also a great option. Imagine a cast-iron clawfoot tub in the center of the room, or an elegant Japanese soaking tub taking center stage. You will likely pay more for these options, but if you are hoping to make your bathtub an anchor focal point in the room, you can’t go wrong with the freestanding tub. Depending upon your dreams for your bathroom, you could spend thousands on the right tub.


Most bathrooms have tile flooring, and for good reason: It’s an attractive, waterproof surface that comes in an endless array of colors, sizes, and designs. But just as with tiling a shower, using tile on the floor of your bathroom – or even on the walls – can be an expensive endeavor. To save costs, you could go with waterproof vinyl planks or linoleum. It’s important to talk with us about what you envision for your bathroom and discuss the type of flooring you want. We might be able to figure out an option that gives you the elegance you want at a more affordable price.

Plumbing and Fixtures

Don’t underestimate the potential cost of your faucets, showerheads, valves and handles. Some homeowners choose to go with budget materials but want the faucets and showerheads to stand out, giving a look of elegance to the room. Consider that the most basic faucets and handles might run a few hundred dollars, while high-end options can run into the thousands.

Electrical and Lighting

If your lighting is outdated, you might want to improve it with recessed lights, decorator lighting around the vanity or hanging lights over the tub. Even a lovely lamp on a long vanity can add a look of classic sophistication while providing the bright light you need to see in the bathroom. Keep in mind that changing the lighting might mean adding more electrical wiring and switches.

Don’t forget the exhaust fan – you might want to upgrade to a quieter model. If you like where it is, you just have to worry about replacing the fan itself and not necessarily making any electrical changes. Let MDM Custom Remodeling, Inc. look at your situation and tell you where electrical changes might be necessary.

Other Potential Expenses for your Los Angeles Bathroom Remodel

There could be other expenses for your bathroom remodel in Los Angeles. In 2023, there are plenty of supply issues still lingering after the height of the pandemic. And because of that, the cost of materials could be higher than what you might have expected a year ago. Keep that in mind as you move forward in choosing the elements of your bathroom remodel.

Demolition of your existing bathroom is a quick part of the job but it does require heavy labor and the use of a dumpster to take things away. Most other “surprise” expenses will come after the remodel is over. For instance, you’ll need to paint the walls (or apply wallpaper) when the job is finished. You might want to install a shower door, towel rods, grab bars in the shower or bath, and shelving units. You might find that you want to include things that drive up the price substantially, such as a nice mirror, medicine cabinet, or high-dollar light fixtures. Keep these in mind for your bottom line.

MDM Custom Remodeling, Inc. can help you with your bathroom remodel from start to finish. We can talk with you about your dreams for the space and what you can practically afford, then help you choose how to proceed. We can provide the custom design services you need to get started, help you get the permits you might need, keep you updated throughout the work, and be there for the final inspection of the job. Get in touch today to let us guide you through the process.


What is the average bathroom remodeling cost in Los Angeles in 2023?

The cost of your bathroom remodel depends upon many factors, including the size of the bathroom, the type of remodel, the cost of moving around any plumbing lines, and the quality of the fixtures and finishes you choose. A rip-and-replace full bathroom remodel in Los Angeles can average anywhere from $18,000 to $74,000 – a very wide range! A major remodel that requires gutting the room can add up to 25% more to that cost. Only the pros at MDM Custom Remodeling Inc. can look over your bathroom and give you a solid estimate.

Demolition costs are usually dependent upon the square footage of the bathroom. It’s one of the quickest phases of the process. Let us take a look at your bathroom plans to give you a firm estimate that includes the cost of demolition.

Is a permit necessary for a bathroom remodeling project in Los Angeles?

That depends on what you’re doing with your bathroom remodel. The permit requirements vary from one locale to another.

The cost of your permit will depend upon the local rules. Let us look into the costs for you.

What are the costs to tile a Los Angeles bathroom?

The cost of tiling a bathroom in Los Angeles depends upon the size of the bathroom, the preparation of the space, the type of tile you choose, and the labor required to install it. A good rule of thumb is to expect between $26 and $82 per square foot, but that can vary even more widely depending upon your choice of tile.

How much does it cost for vanity replacement in my Los Angeles bathroom?

Vanities can range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand, depending upon how large and fancy you want to get. In addition to the cost of the vanity itself, you might have to relocate the plumbing or electrical, expand them, or bring them up to code. Preparation of the site and the installation will incur labor costs. If you are going with a high-end, custom job, expect to pay more.

What does a shower remodel in Los Angeles cost in 2023?

Remodeling your shower can run you from a few thousand dollars to $15,000 or more. As with any other bathroom remodeling costs, the final price will depend upon the size of your bathroom, the shower you choose to upgrade to, and any plumbing or electrical you might have to move to get the shower where you want it. The materials you choose will make a big difference as well – for instance, standard ceramic tile might cost you around $1.50 per square foot, on average, while marble tile might run $50 per square foot or more. To be sure of the costs, get in touch with MDM Custom Remodeling Inc. for a good estimate of what you can expect to pay for your shower remodel.

What are the small bathroom remodeling costs in Los Angeles in 2023?

No matter the size of your bathroom remodel, the cost largely depends upon the number of fixtures you have, the quality of those fixtures, and the materials you choose. To put that in perspective, a small bathroom remodel could run $15,000 if you choose high-end fixtures and materials, but a large bathroom remodel could cost the same if you go with lower costs for fixtures and materials. Therefore, it’s difficult to provide a good estimate until we take a look at your bathroom and talk about the materials you want to use. MDM Custom Remodeling Inc. can look over your plans and give you a good estimate on the cost of remodeling your bathroom.

Are there any hidden costs to bathroom remodeling in Los Angeles?

As with any other major remodel, sometimes unexpected expenses will pop up. This can be especially true in a bathroom, where water is a constant presence. If we get into the walls and discover an issue with your plumbing, such as a water leak that has led to rot, mildew or mold, you might face additional expenses to fix the problem. It’s a good idea to set aside an extra 10-15% over the cost of your estimate to pay for these unexpected issues, should they arise. If everything goes smoothly, then you have some extra cash left over for decorating the bathroom when the work is done!

The tiles in a bathroom are undoubtedly a key feature. They can be used in colorful and decorative ways to add style to this space. But when it comes to choosing tiles for a bathroom remodel, panning is essential. In Los Angeles, it\’s easy to get overwhelmed with numerous tiling options. That is why we have highlighted a few guidelines in this blog, which will help you choose the right ones for your bathroom. Keep reading!

How to Choose the Right Tiles for Your Bathroom Remodel

Opt for Light Colors

Do you want to have a light and airy bathroom? Then it’s best to choose the light colors of tiles. Go for the tiles of off-white, white and other light colors, which will make you feel about your bathroom is spacious. But make sure you choose grout colors that don’t contrast sharply with the tiles.

Make Sure the Tiles Are Easy to Clean

Bathroom cleaning is truly a big hassle for homeowners, especially if you are busy with your hectic schedules. Hence, it’s wise to go for tiles that are easy to clean. Porcelain or ceramic tiles are easy to clean. Besides, less grouts in between tiles also result in easier cleaning. Explore our more traditional bathroom designs to know more in this regard.

Choose the Tiles That Are Slip-Resistant

It’s one of the vital facts for choosing bathroom tiles. Slate can be a sound choice if you prefer a darker tone in your bathroom. Besides, having more grouts in between tiles can make a bathroom slip-resistant. In this regard, it’s also best to add small tiles to the floor of a walk-in shower and larger tiles for the remaining parts. But remember, glass bathroom tiles can be extremely slippery. 

Pay Attention to Patterns

Now, it’s time to think about the pattern. If you want to go for a field tile, the options are endless, including brick, basketweave, etc. But in terms of mosaic tiles, you need to determine the pattern based on the mosaic you choose. And consider how busy your bathroom floor would be. For the shower wall, the brick pattern is the best.

Consider the Style of Your Bathroom

Before choosing bathroom tiles, consider the overall style of this space. Make sure you choose the option that suits your bathroom design, which can increase the aesthetic appeal of this space. Otherwise, the overall look of your bathroom may be spoiled.

An attractive but cost-effective bathroom remodel is absolutely attainable. But implementing the right ideas is a must, which will give you a satisfying outcome on your investment. Have you already started planning to remodel this space? Then take a look at this blog first! Here we have highlighted a few smart ideas for bathroom remodeling suggested by industry experts.

A Few Smart Ideas for Bathroom Remodeling

Listed below are a few bathroom makeover ideas that many reliable contractors in Los Angeles suggest.

Small and Textured Tiles on Shower Floor

There are a lot of flooring options and tile choices for a bathroom remodel. But when it comes to the shower, opt for the small and textured tiles to keep your feet protected from slipping. These tiles are easy to clean. And most importantly, they resist mold, humidity, and stains.

Stick to a Small Tub 

Want to install a bathtub in your bathroom? Remember, bigger is not always better. It’s wise to stick to a small tub that takes less floor space in a bathroom. As a result, you can have a space for storage, a countertop area, and more. You will need less water and energy to fill them. Go through Yelp reviews to know more in this regard.


Though it’s not an exciting part of a bathroom remodel, a ventilated bathroom should be a priority. A bathroom vent fan can be a smart addition. It can draw out moisture and odors, which will improve the air quality in your bathroom. It can also prevent mold and mildew growth. 

Go for Heated Flooring

When it comes to choosing a bathroom makeover design in Century City, many people opt for this idea. However, if you want to replace the floor of your bathroom, opt for heated flooring. Apart from increasing the value of your home, this flooring option will save money on energy costs. 

Include Ample Storage

You will need enough cabinets, shelving, and drawers to fit all your bathroom needs comfortably. Make sure the storage option you choose will function with your day-to-day life. For example, choose a vanity with enough storage space to keep your bathroom items at your fingertips.  So, what’s holding you back? Opt for these ideas to make your bathroom functional and give this space an incredible look. But never clutter your bathroom with unnecessary accessories. Pick the items strategically that fit your lifestyle and design preferences.

In most cases, homeowners often focus on the bigger picture while renovating the shower room. And you can’t deny that you are no different! You care most about upgrading fixtures and their placings during bathroom remodeling to ensure the water pressure remains excellent. But have you ever thought of how the bathroom will look bright? Maybe NO, but you should, indeed! Perfect lighting can bring a huge difference to your daily routine, whether it’s morning or night. But it depends on what you choose.

Bathroom Remodeling Ideas With The Best Lighting Styles

Lighting decides how your bathroom will be lit or if it will make you feel relaxed or confident. That\’s why making the right choice regarding this is essential, and we are here to help you. 

Give your bathroom a touch of uniqueness with pendant lighting!

You can place it directly over the mirrors to illuminate the room well. In fact, this lighting fixture fits perfectly the shower rooms with high ceilings! You can view our bathroom remodeling gallery to ideate a little. 

Bring perfection with sconces in the bathroom color scheme!

The sconce lighting allows you to add some uniqueness to your shower room by going stunningly with the design scheme and colors. Yet, it\’s a better choice over traditional ones that usually match fixtures and faucets.

For instance, if you have a black-n-white bathroom design, the black wall-mounted sconce will be apt. The overall vintage look will bring elegance and style! On the other hand, you can even go creative with sconces by choosing its eccentric design, like candles or mason jars.

Add the lighting wherever you can!

For many homeowners, a few vanity lights are sufficient. Still, if you want to go for the opposite approach, you can layer the lights to balance. For example, when you have windows or skylights for natural light access, add overhead lighting that you can adjust whenever you wish and pendant lights above the vanity. Yet, you can have a bathroom filled with light for both morning and night routines.

Tiling from floor to ceiling:

Forget about the old paint shades! It’s time to upgrade and bring the floor-to-ceiling tiling to bring a world of difference in your small bathroom. And it’s best to go for the larger tiles for this regardless of colors- lighter, dark, or bold ones. But if you just want to tile the wet area, consider a stand-alone bath or a wall-to-wall shower!

Change the light fixtures:

The best part of custom remodeling is that you can design the space as you have always desired. The choices remain endless, just like in the case of bathroom light fixtures! We, MDM Custom Remodeling Inc, recommend natural light access for a small shower room as much as possible. If windows aren’t an option for you, go for a skylight! Or you can choose modern light fixtures with a perfect color scheme, especially the warm tones, to hold the comfort and ambiance.

Floating vanities:

Do you want a cosmetic refresh in your bathroom but with added storage? Nothing can beat the idea of a floating vanity for the next small bathroom makeover! If the flooring runs in your bathroom to the wall, you can have additional space underneath it for more storage while it looks elegant and impressive. 

Make sure you go for the light wood shades, black, or white for vanities to hold the minimalistic look, and style it with a contrast against the geometric tiling if you have one. Also, the mirror style above the vanity should be of asymmetrical shapes or round to soften the space!

But we can help you find a way out here! First, think of the lifestyle you maintain and your requirements. For example:

  • How much can you afford? 

And so on….

Considering all, you can ideate which showerhead or spray is the perfect match to make your shower area functional and give you that blissful experience. We, MDM Custom Remodeling Inc, have discussed here a few options for you:

Spa-like luxury

Have you got tired of seeing and using your dull outdated shower room? Even while embarking on a renovation but you are on the edge of budget, bathroom remodeling may seem to be a dream to you- Right? But we say NO! A simple shower door replacement can bring an unexpected change in functionality and overall curb appeal to your bathroom.

Best Shower Door Styles to Check Out for Bathroom Remodeling

Of course, endless choices are available for glass shower enclosures, especially the doors that can make you feel a little overwhelmed while shopping. Don’t worry! We are here to help you, as some decisions of shower door depend on your style preferences like which type of glass you want- etched, fogged, or clear.  

Also, consider after which door style you are such as:

Pivot doors

Whether you have a small bathroom or a larger one, a pivot shower door is a perfect match for any space. It swings around 180° for its pivot hinge, which allows you to open it widely out or in as you require. In fact, you can have two options here- either you can go for the pivot door attached hinge on one side that swings inside and outside or the center-mounted ones to have the revolving shower door. And if you have determined to get pivot shower doors in your bathroom, look for an ultra-modern curved glass shower door. 

Steam doors

Are you opting for floor-to-ceiling shower doors? Then, we, MDM Custom Remodeling Inc, recommend a steam shower door. The design allows a shower to double, just seeming like a steam room. The glass panels in the shower doors extend to the ceiling from the floor to hold the steam tight. Most steam shower doors come with solid glass panels and hinge with built-in air-tight seals and moveable panels above the door used as vents.

Bypass doors

In short, these are sliding doors that you can handle, just like your patio doors. Two sliding doors remain attached to the shower enclosure and slide on the tracks or move by mechanical rollers. The bypass door is perfect for the bathroom having stand-alone showers or the combined bathtub-shower configurations. Also, if you are blessed with a small shower room, you can make efficient use even of the tiny room with this sliding door installation because it doesn’t swing out!

Having a small bathroom is really a matter of concern for a growing family! And while on the same page, a bathroom expansion may be the best alternative you can embrace not only to jazz up the space but increase the square footage. But to get it done right, you need to make several considerations that you often overlook and end up with an undesired layout.

What to Consider for a Perfect Bathroom Expansion 

Well, a bathroom expansion is beyond just a renovation! Apart from enhancing the square footage, it can increase the resale value of your home. That’s why you should take time and think closely before designing the extension to have a more liveable space. Let’s get started:

Walls or storage: Which way to go?

At MDM Custom Remodeling Inc, we suggest the privacy and storage options first. For instance, if you focus on privacy, it’s better to utilize the half wall and create a different space for the toilet. Or you can use the full walls to have an enclosed toilet with a private room. 

Contrarily, you can think of closed or open storage options, cabinets, closets, or an open shelf. If you want to have a combination of storage and style, open shelves are ideal for it!

Should you have a double vanity or a single sink?

Yes, it’s quite overwhelming to decide between a sink and double vanity. If you have planned a small bathroom expansion, like a half or secondary bath, a sink may be a perfect addition! But while having space, a double vanity is great. Also, consider your storage needs and the number of people to get ready to choose the right type of double vanity.

Flooring and windows:

Let’s start from the bottom! For bathroom flooring, the best options are ceramic or porcelain tile, natural stones, vinyl floors, and engineered wood flooring. And once you have done making a choice for the flooring, go upward to the ceiling and walls. 

While not getting an idea about placing the window, our bathroom remodeling contractor may help you out. For example, if it’s a small bathroom expansion, a skylight is best to access immense natural light and maintain privacy. 

Besides, if you are in two minds between a bathtub or a walk-in shower, we recommend the combination for a mid-range bathroom remodel.

Hey, have you ever counted how many bathrooms you have in your home, and are those larger enough for your family? To be honest, most homeowners include bathrooms in their house plan but never estimate if those are sufficient! For instance, when you added one and a half restrooms in your new home, maybe there were only you two- you and your spouse. But now, with a growing family, you should think of bathroom expansion and transforming the current space to experience a spa-like oasis! 

In short, you and your family can have the exact aesthetic you have dreamt of with additional room.

Everything About Bathroom Expansion and Its Basics

Bathroom expansion is nothing but renovating your shower room but a step ahead! The process involves not only the refurbishment of your current restroom but the addition of extra square footage. You can increase the all-around size while turning a half-bath into a full one.

But do you know where to get the space? We, MDM Custom Remodeling Inc, are here to suggest!

How to find space for bathroom expansion

If done right, a perfect bathroom expansion can give you the best possible liveable space and boost the real estate value during the sale. And for that, choosing the right space is essential! Well, you have two options here to expand the bathroom, like:

  • Go for a complete bump-out! It can help you get additional space by knocking down the exterior wall and extending the outward, around 12 to 15 feet.
  • Utilize the excess space within your home that can be the hallway, two compartments of a larger walk-in closet adjacent to your bathroom, spare room, or bedroom.

Cost of bathroom expansion

We can’t answer you here any fixed budget because it can vary, depending on your preferences and choices, such as:

  • Expansion size
  • Charges of building permits
  • Electrical and plumbing installation
  • Material choice and labor costs
  • Drywall installation and more

However, we have estimated our previous projects and found out that the average outlay for bathroom expansion can be around $60,000. And it is double of standard bathroom renovations!

Bathroom expansion considerations

While extending your bathroom space, you need to consider a few factors a little. Here are some of:

  • Do I need to install a double vanity or a modern bathroom sink?
  • Move or add electrical and plumbing stuff?
  • Which flooring option to pick!
  • Walk-in shower or bathtub?
