If you have a large home, or you simply spend a lot of time entertaining guests, it’s always a good idea to have an extra half bathroom. Luckily, this type of remodel is much easier to tackle since it doesn’t require installing a bathtub or shower. Here is some more information to get you started.
On average, a standard half bath remodel will cost about $3,500 for the materials and contractor fee, while a luxury remodel will cost about $4,650. If you need specific cost information, click here to get in touch with a local professional.
The maintenance required of a half bathroom is like any other bathroom and should generally be limited to regular cleaning.
While the scope of work is comparable for both projects, differences arise primarily in the quality of the materials selected and the level of difficulty in installing them. For instance, the $3,500 standard remodel mentioned above entails installing a new porcelain-coated cast iron sink, a standard two-piece toilet, chrome-plated fittings, and vinyl flooring.
The $4,650 deluxe remodel includes a pedestal sink with chrome-plated fittings, high-quality decorative mirror and light fixtures, ceramic tile walls and floor, and primer and paint.
The average-sized half bathroom is between 3x6 and 4x5 feet—just enough room for a sink and toilet.
Half bathrooms were used in the 1800’s, although they were called “powder rooms,” a place where women could fix their makeup and adjust their clothing.
