Choices for Houston Bathroom Remodeling
Just because you're doing a bathroom remodel in Space City doesn't mean you need to make your bathroom look like central command for the orbiting space shuttle. I mean, what would a home in The Heights be without a rustic-style bathroom? On the other hand, contemporary urban baths with stainless steel bathroom fixtures might fit best in Sugar Land, while a home in The Woodlands might like a new contemporary casual bathroom makeover. Regardless of your Houston neighborhood and your own personal preferences, if you're willing to do a little searching the right bathroom is out there for you.
Cost of a Houston Bathroom Remodel
Everyday ServiceMagic is diligently gathering information on the home improvement projects we process. The first things we ask are how much the project costs and how long the project took. Here's what we found out. The national average for the cost of a bathroom remodel is $9,150. The average bathroom remodel in Houston is a little higher than this (just over $10,000). This doesn't mean that Houston bathroom remodeling is intrinsically more expensive.
We consistently see bathroom remodels come in at $8,000 and $9,000. At the same time, it's not uncommon to see projects in the $15,000 range. In fact, one Houston bathroom remodel we tracked hit the $50,000 mark. This usually means that either the homeowner has extremely expensive tastes or a significant change was made to the bathroom itself. You can install a new bathtub for a reasonable price, but if you want to rearrange the placement of the bathtub, sink, or toilet, the price tag is going to grow exponentially.

Project Length for a Houston Bathroom Renovation
Our national average for project length is right at three weeks. Houston bathroom renovations are right on this mark, although again skewed by homeowners who had larger resources and fewer time constraints. Examples include one Houston homeowner whose bathroom renovation took exactly four weeks and still scored the contractor a 4.5 out of a maximum 5-point scale. Another bathroom renovation took a whopping 42 days to complete and still received a perfect 5.
If project length is a concern, know that as long as you know what you want and what your price range is, there's little reason for your bathroom renovation to take longer than a week. Contractors want to keep the project short just as much as you do. The more bathroom remodels they do, the more money make they make. Just make sure you take enough time to feel comfortable with the decisions you make and the materials you choose.
