Good Reasons to Remodel or Renovate Your Bathroom
A bathroom remodel is a popular project with our northern New Jersey clients. Homeowners renovate their bathrooms for many reasons. A popular one is to improve its utility, such as converting a shower-over-tub to a walk-in shower. Another reason is to accommodate an aging resident by adding a shower bench, grab bars, and hand-held shower head, for example. Oftentimes, a homeowner is looking to update the style of their bathroom. This is done when homeowners are looking to put their home on the market, as well as for their own enjoyment.
Bathroom Remodeling Ideas and Examples
Bathrooms reflect the current design and lifestyle demands. Some trends we are seeing in bathroom remodels include:
- Converting shower-over-tub to large walk-in showers. People are requesting beautifully tiled showers with built-in shampoo niches and benches. A frameless shower door, combined with a fixed glass panel, are most popular.
- Vanities with the look of fine furniture. Free-standing, feminine vanities, topped with quartz are being installed.
- Recessed shelving. We are creating storage spaces between the wall studs. These open shelves are great for linen storage.

A Bathroom Makeover – A Quicker Bathroom Project
A bathroom makeover is a straightforward project in which we replace the tile and fixtures in the room, but use the existing walls, floor, plumbing, and electrical. This process takes about 2-3 weeks for an average 40-70 square foot bathroom. This process is appropriate when there are no plumbing or electrical issues to fix, and you want to keep the existing layout. Townships do not require permits and inspections when only installing new vanities, toilets, or tile in your bathroom.

A Complete Bathroom Remodel
A full bathroom remodel, as well as the addition of an entirely new bathroom takes about a month and requires permits and inspections. During this type of project, we upgrade all the plumbing and electrical in the bathroom in addition to installing new water-resistant drywall, tile, and fixtures.
In the two bathroom remodel examples below, tubs were converted to large showers. For the second project, the walls and plumbing were moved in order to allow for the oversized two-person shower with dual shower heads.

How Much Does Bathroom Remodeling Cost?
According to a HomeAdvisor poll of local members, an average bathroom remodel in northern New Jersey costs a little more than $10,000. However, this cost can vary widely based upon a few factors.
To ballpark your project, first, decide if you will require any plumbing or electrical work. Adding these specialists will increase the installation cost considerably.
The second main cost factor is your materials. Purchasing stock, builder-grade materials are much less expensive than custom vanities, marble tile, and high-end fixtures.
Of course, a DIY bathroom remodeling job is less expensive than hiring a professional. However, this is only true if you know what you are doing.
