You’re ready to hit refresh on your bathroom, but how much should you budget for the design you envision? We’ll walk you through every type of bathroom and every level of remodeling investment to help you plan your bathroom remodel and feel confident from the start. How much should you budget for your Clark County bathroom remodel and what can you expect to be included?
Half Bath & Powder Room Remodel
What can be updated in a half bathroom or powder room?
- Sink & Faucet
- Trim & Fixtures
Cost Levels for a Half Bath or Powder Room
The Spruce Up: $3,500 to $4,500
When all your bathroom needs is to be spruced up with new finishes, your budget will reflect that. Your bathroom will get fresh paint, a new countertop, updated plumbing fixtures, and a new towel rod and toilet tissue holder. Even with these minimal upgrades, your small bathroom can feel completely refreshed.
A mid-range bathroom update is what most homeowners are looking for to update this space. This cost level will include a brand-new tile floor, new plumbing fixtures, a semi-custom vanity for better storage, and everything included in The Spruce Up. Your half bathroom will be transformed from top to bottom with updated, more stylish, finishes and features.
The High-End: $6,000 to $8,500
The high-end budget will completely change the look and feel of your powder room by starting with a full removal of everything in the space, down to the sheetrock. You will choose all new flooring, fixtures, and a vanity. Top your new space off with a stylish lighting fixture and a paint color that ties the space together. You can go trendy, timeless, or somewhere in between.
Full Bathroom Remodel
The full bathroom is likely used by house members and weekend guests alike. It serves important functions and needs to have a great layout that works for everyone. A typical full bathroom has a bathtub and shower combo to make the most use of the space, as well as a hard-working storage vanity to fit everyone’s essentials and linens. Because this is likely the bathroom that children will use, every finish should be easy to clean and durable.

Cost Levels for a Full Bathroom
Bath Facelift: $18,000 to $25,000
If your full bathroom is simply dated but in otherwise good condition, a good facelift can breathe new life into the space. Your bathtub will be replaced with an updated steel feature with a fiberglass surround. Your new semi-custom vanity with better storage and a new countertop and sink will be a refreshing update. Finish your new space with fresh paint and midrange durable flooring.
Bathroom Remodel: $25,000 to $31,000
Just as with a half-bathroom remodel, this is typically the cost level that homeowners choose. Your new bathtub will be surrounded by the ceramic tile of your color choice. At this level, your vanity will be completely custom to suit your storage and style needs, along with a midrange natural stone countertop. Choose new durable and stylish flooring, like wood-look luxury vinyl tile. Finish the space off with a fresh coat of paint and an interesting light fixture.
Gut & Start Fresh: $32,000 to $45,000
If your full bathroom is dated, the layout doesn’t work for you, and you just need a whole new start, choose the highest level for your bathroom remodel. Your brand-new custom vanity and natural stone slab countertop are just the start. Choose all new upscale plumbing fixtures that are on trend and stylish. An extra deep tub with ceramic or stone tile surround will complement your new tile floors perfectly. For added character, wood wainscoting and a designer light fixture will bring your new gorgeous bathroom together.
Large Primary Bathroom Remodel
The primary, or master, bathroom is the homeowner’s sanctuary. This is also a space that should make the beginning and end of your day easy and refreshing. Choose to go trendy and colorful or serene and spa-like. Every feature is to your exact needs and style. The size of a primary suite, the finishes you choose, and the features you include can vary widely, and that’s reflected in the price ranges.
What can be updated in a primary bathroom?
- Sinks & Faucets
- Tile Shower
- Tile Shower Enclosure
- Wood Trim
- Light Fixtures
- Paint Colors
- Towel Bars & TP Holders
Cost Levels for a Primary Bathroom
The Refresh: $45,000 to $60,000
Your primary bathroom refresh will start with a major update: toss out your dated tub and install a luxurious freestanding soaking tub. You’ll enjoy the convenience of a double vanity with plenty of clever storage solutions. A new expansive vanity mirror, updated trending plumbing fixtures, all-new paint, and new luxury vinyl plank flooring finish your newly refreshed bathroom.
A Complete Primary Update: $65k – $85k
Increase the function and enjoyment of your primary bathroom with features like in-floor radiant heating, natural stone countertops, multiple shower heads, and stunning designer lighting fixtures. Update the layout, or keep your layout intact–whichever suits you best. Choose ceramic tile flooring to make the most of your in-floor heating and enjoy the upscale style. Of course, your complete update will include the plumbing fixtures that suit your style as well as fresh paint. You’ll also be able to sit back and relax in your new freestanding tub and walk-in shower with the new tile of your choice.
The Ultimate Retreat: $90,000 to $130,000
If you’ve always dreamt of an in-home spa experience, this is your type of bathroom remodel. Wake up to heated floors for ultimate comfort, along with programmable shower features that are set to your perfect water pressure and temperature. Go even further with a walk-in steam shower with a beautiful tile surround. Your all-custom vanity with clever storage options to fit every essential and bring ease to your daily routine. Top the vanity with natural marble slab countertops and designer plumbing fixtures. Wainscotting, fresh paint, and a stunning statement light fixture deliver the ultimate bathroom retreat.
How to Choose Your Remodeling Level
Two main factors will determine your remodel level: your budget and your needs. Your budget will determine the level of finishes you’ll choose at every level. If storage or layout is an issue in your current bathroom, you’ll want to increase your investment to make your bathroom remodel truly worth the effort. You can keep your budget balanced by getting the structural changes you need but choosing builder-grade or mid-range finishes and fixtures.
An Important Note About These Costs
The costs above are base prices to give you a working idea of what you can expect your remodel to cost. However, these may not accurately reflect your unique remodel. Use these numbers as a starting point to decide both what you want to do and what you can afford to do. If you have more room in your budget, you’ll have the flexibility to choose higher-end finishes.
