 Mid-Range Remodel

A higher level of remodeling would keep the plumbing and things like the tub / shower, toilets, and sink plumbing just as they are.  A middle of the road makeover might mean changing out some bathroom cabinets or vanity, but leaving the sink, toilet, and tub.  You might also consider adding some space saving cabinets, or changing out the mirror or lights.

Depending on your preferences, you might also re-paint  - but that is completely up to you.

A mid-range remodel is easily completed by the aver do-it-yourselfer....

Complete Remodel

A complete remodel will, of course, be the most expensive of the projects... But, once again, can vary greatly depending on whether you are moving plumbing around in the room, etc

A complete remodel can be as involved as a complete "gut-out" of the existing bathroom, re-plumbing everything, all new sink, tub, and toilet and fixtures - or, any combination of these.

If you are going to completely gut-out and replace everything, plan on spending $10,000 to $20,000 - once again depending on the quality of cabinets and fixtures that you choose for your bathroom.

Another consideration when it comes to a full bathroom remodel... can it be done completely by yourself?  There are just some projects that need the help of a professional....
