Full Bathroom Renovation Vs. Half Bathroom Remodel
The costs of remodeling will greatly depend on if you are completely remodeling your bathroom, or if you are half remodeling. So, what is the difference between each?
A full bathroom remodel typically includes removing heavy items or, removing part of a wall or tiles. Upgrades that would fall into a full bathroom remodel include
- Replacing bathtub
- Tub-to-shower conversion
- Updating Flooring
- Changing cabinetry
Full bathroom remodels typically range anywhere from $7,000 – $20,000.
A partial bathroom remodel can mean just about anything that doesn’t include a gut job. These updates include the following:
- A new shower-head
- New Door
- Updating countertops
- Adding a fresh coat of paint.
If you like your current bathroom but just want to add a little refresh, a partial bathroom remodel is the way to go. In addition, these updates are extremely budget friendly and can often be completed without a professional. A decent budget for a half bath can start from $3,000 – $10,000.
