Our Bathroom Renovation Cost
Because I knew that I wanted to get detailed and share our real numbers with you, I was sure to keep myself very organized when tracking our bathroom renovation expenses. I set up a Google Spreadsheet and tracked / categorized every single expense (down to the penny).
Now, let me take a quick minute and explain something here. Blogging about our renovations is our job, quite literally. We have the pleasure of teaming up with awesome brands for partnerships and sometimes part of that partnership involves the brand providing products for free. I’ve noted the gifted products we received below as a separate category, just to be upfront and honest.
Hopefully this helps give you an accurate breakdown of the expenses that go into a bathroom renovation of this nature.

How our bathroom budget compares to the average
At an average bathroom renovation cost ranging from roughly $6,000 to $15,000 (national average $10.5K), you can see that we came in above average for our ensuite bathroom.
But I would also argue that our bathroom result is also above-average! 🙂 Am I right or am I right?
This master bathroom remodel would definitely be considered as high-end and luxurious with the custom tile work, dual-head his & her showers with rain showerheads and hand showers, and linear euro-style drains so we could have a curbless shower design. If you take one look at the bathroom, you can tell that we splurged on several items, like these fixed door panels that I’m obsessed with.
Not to mention, we COMPLETELY changed the layout of this bathroom and moved all the plumbing around – which can be the biggest impact on a bathroom remodeling cost – some estimates say that it costs about $5,000 each time you move plumbing fixtures.
Do you have any regrets? Did you still add value to your home?
