Are you sick of waiting in line to use the bathroom in your own home? Then it may be time to add a bathroom onto the house and make life a whole lot easier. Here’s some more information to get you started.
The cost of converting an existing space into a bathroom ranges from $3,000 to $6,000, depending on the complexity of the layout and costs of materials and labor. Creating new floor space for an entirely new bathroom can cost from $25,000 to $60,000 for luxury designs. It’s best to get a couple price quotes from local contractors and go from there.
The maintenance required of a bathroom addition is the same as any other room in the home, and is usually limited to regular cleaning. The type of cleaning depends on the materials used to construct the space—tile, carpet, etc.
According to Realtor Magazine, homeowners can recoup 74-90% of the cost of a bathroom addition when selling their home.
The space needed depends on the type of bathroom you are looking to add. A half bath requires about 18 square feet of space, a bathroom that includes a standing shower requires 30 square feet, and a bathroom that includes both a shower and tub needs at least 35 square feet.
