How Much Does It Cost to Remodel a Small Bathroom?

Small Bathroom New York City NYRemodeling a small bathroom is one of the most common home renovation projects in New York City, NY. Because square footage has long been a precious commodity in this city, many condos, apartments, and townhouses have not historically included a large footprint for the bathroom. At the same time, 21st-century homeowners are less likely to be satisfied with tiny bathrooms that seem dark and cramped. As a result, many homeowners pursue renovations that will enlarge their bathrooms to accommodate luxury tubs and showers or to increase storage space, or they simply make their bathrooms look more inviting with updated fixtures and tile.

As with any remodeling project, the size of the space to be renovated will play a role in the project costs – so a small bathroom makeover will likely cost less than remodeling a large bathroom. However, there are many other factors that affect the final price tag. Here are some of them:

Scope of the Project

If your dream bathroom remodel involves gutting your existing space to change the layout and replace plumbing, that’s going to be a more expensive project than simply replacing your worn bath-and-shower combination in the existing spot and installing new wall and floor tiles. In addition to extra work for demolition, you’ll probably need to include the cost of professional design services and drawings in your remodeling budget.

Choice of Materials

The quality of the materials you choose can also affect the price of your bathroom remodel. It’s important to invest in the most durable products that fit your style and budget, but you can save money if you avoid choosing highly customized or imported items.


In New York City, the permitting process can add significantly to the cost of your project, so it’s a good idea to partner with a contractor who knows all the requirements and can help you avoid potentially costly mistakes.
