What Affects the Cost of Your Bathroom Remodel?

There are several factors that may influence the cost of your bathroom remodel. Here are the 3 most important ones to consider when planning your project.

1. Level of Customization
The more customized your bathroom remodel designs, the more the project will cost. Custom work requires more labor and higher-quality products, so be prepared to pay more for custom features.
2. Project Involvement
A contractor who takes a more involved role in planning, organizing, and constructing your bathroom remodel will cost more than a contractor who offloads responsibilities to you or other subcontractors.
3. Product & Material Quality
Nobody wants to remodel their bathroom just to watch it fall apart a year later. However, high-quality materials and craftsmanship for your bathroom remodel often come at a higher cost.
