Learn what to expect – and what you can get for your budget:
Basic Remodel – Under $2,000
Champagne taste on a beer budget is nothing to be ashamed of.
If you think it’s necessary spend several G’s to get the bathroom renovation of your dreams, we’ve got good news for you! With the budget-friendly options at Kauffman Kitchens, your design thirst can be quenched – without drowning you in debt.
A base model of bathroom countertops and cabinets can be completed for around $1,500. By opting for a cultured marble countertop instead of a custom-cut option, you save those sweet dollars and also get that sweet design aesthetics of a seamless vanity! Cultured marble countertops come in tons of colors and designs, and are definitely the way to go for your bathroom renovation on a budget.
A basic small bathroom remodel costs roughly $1,500 and can be expected to take only one day to install. Talk about a quick turnaround!
Upscale Remodel – Starting at $3,000
If $3,000 – $5,000 is a cost to renovate your small bathroom that is comfortable for you, it opens your countertop and cabinet options tremendously.
Two of the most popular countertops we install at Kauffman Kitchens are Corian and Granite – only slightly more expensive than a cultured marble countertop, but still well within most homeowner’s budgets. Having a local bathroom remodeling team install either Corian or Granite in a small bathroom costs around $3,000. An upscale countertop installation like this may between 3-4 days to complete.
Known as the newer generation’s “faux stone”, Corian is the premium building material that comes in dozens of different colors. Similarly, Granite countertops also have several style options, and are more in line with a “one-of-a-kind” look, since every slab is unique.
Extras & Other Upgrades to Consider
There’s nothing wrong with being a little extra – especially when it comes to your home’s primary bathroom! Additional upgraded finishes may add a few extra dollars to your bathroom renovation budget, but they’re so worth it. Here are our top 3 most noticed (and most affordable) “extra’s” to consider when planning a bathroom renovation on a budget:
- Custom Mirrors – Sometimes, finding a mirror to compliment your cabinets and countertops is harder than it should be. When working with a bathroom remodeling expert, you most likely can have the option of creating a custom mirror to match the new cabinetry of your space. Expect to add about $1,000 for this unique, deluxe feature.
- Faucets & Finishes – If you’re planning on updating that old vanity faucet during your small bathroom remodel, remember to allocate funds for it! Depending on the degree of decoration vanity faucets can range anywhere from an extra $50 to upwards of $1,000!
- Linen Cabinet – We can’t talk about a bathroom renovation without also talking about storage! Afterall, it is one of the most important aspects of any room in the house. Linen cabinets can be purchased as a stand-alone piece, but if square footage is scarce, we recommend having shelves built into your cabinetry! It’s a super affordable solution – expect to add about $500 to the price, per cabinet.
