How much you’ll need to budget for your bathroom renovation depends on a number of factors. The location of your home, the size of the space, the materials you want to use and the cost of labor will all impact your total renovation budget.
Our guide will help you start the planning process so you can go into your bathroom remodel with the confidence to succeed.
The full cost of a bathroom renovation depends on what you want to change. If you’re planning on replacing a few fixtures to freshen up the space, you might only have to spend a few hundred dollars. On the other hand, if you want to have the layout changed, you’ll have to shell out thousands of dollars to cover the cost of moving plumbing and having everything installed.
As one of the most intensely-used areas of our homes, bathrooms are popular areas within the home for remodeling. Though they can add value and return a good portion of the costs at resale, bathroom renovations can be costly. That’s why it’s important for Auckland homeowners to plan their budgets well. Given that more than two-thirds of renovation projects go over-budget, many homeowners could benefit from more thorough, accurate planning.
Not only can you renovate your bathroom without totally gutting it, but there are some pretty attractive and relatively inexpensive products these days that can bring a high-impact look to a low-budget job.
Here are three price points ranging from $3,000 to $70,000 for bathroom renovation in Auckland, along with the elements each might reasonably include:
1. Quick fix: $6,000 (yes, even in Auckland)

Doing some or all of the work yourself can help you save a lot on labor expenses. Homeowners who are particularly handy may be able to handle most of a small, mid-range bathroom remodel. If you’re not so skilled at installation work, you can still shave off a big chunk of your expenses by DIYing the tearout phase of your renovation.
However, DIYing does come with its own costs. You may need to buy or rent tools, equipment, and other supplies that a contractor would already have.
