How Much Does a Bathroom Remodel Cost (Clone)

What does it cost to remodel a bathroom in Baltimore Maryland?

On average, a bathroom remodel costs between $30,000 to $50,000.  

What are Bathroom Renovation Costs?

Very often a bathroom costs more to renovate than any other room in the house? Why? We need to bring in a lot of different tradespeople to work in a relatively small space:

  • Plumbers
  • Demo Contractors
  • HVAC specialist
  • Concrete Contractors
  • Electricians
  • Carpenters
  • Tile Specialists
  • Drywall
  • Painting

If you want to maximize a small space, there may be a lot of custom cabinet work. This includes custom vanities, wall niches, and cabinetry. For us, that work is done in-house by our carpenters in our mill shop. That is the best way to get a perfect fit.

Add on the costs of plans, renderings, and permits, and you can see how the numbers can climb quickly. The bathroom is effectively a micro-house within a house.
