Whether you’re looking to update your forever home, increase the rental return of your investment property or increase the value before you sell then you will be considering a bathroom renovation. Before you undertake any work you will want to understand how much a bathroom renovation will cost when living in Sydney. 

When it comes to bathroom renovations, no two jobs are the same, so it is hard as many variables involved in renovating the bathroom that affect the cost, from the size of the room, tiling height required, quality of the fixtures and fittings.  

Thankfully we have sat down with our bathroom expert Kelvin to share some light with key considerations and pricing expectations. 

How much should I invest in my bathroom?

When you begin your bathroom renovation journey we recommend a general rule of thumb is to invest 5%-10% of your home’s value into the bathroom renovation. The main bathroom and ensuite are vital rooms in the home and critical they are stylish and functional. It is not recommended to run the risk of cutting costs as it can end up being a bad decision if quality of work is compromised. 

Small Bathroom Renovations

Smaller scale bathroom renovations will cost from $20,000-$30,000. This cost will include bathroom design, demolition of the existing space, supply and installation of materials, fixtures and fittings, all labour with trades and project management. This price point you will not expect any major changes or updates to the layout, entry level to mid range finishes and stone benchtops. Your bathroom will be rejuvenated with a whole look and feel to your bathroom.

Large Bathroom Renovations

Large scale bathroom renovations will cost from $25,000-$45,000. This cost will have the same inclusions as a smaller scale renovation and potentially re-configuring the plumbing and electrical layout.  With large bathroom renovations you will be able to indulge in the luxuries which include concealed toilets, double showers, underfloor heating or feature tiles.
