Are you looking into bathroom remodeling costs in Cypress, Texas? The most important considerations are size, finish level, scope, and services required.

How much money should you set aside for bathroom remodeling? Here’s how to estimate the cost of bathroom remodeling in Cypress, Texas. The main variables are as follows:

  • Size

The number of bathroom fixtures and the room’s square footage usually determine the size of your bathroom.

  • Finish level

From budget to luxury finish, all materials, fixtures, and finishes for your renovation.

  • Scope

Are you simply changing out the fixtures and finishes? Are you making any changes to the floor plan, such as moving walls or utilities? Are you installing a new bathroom or relocating?

  • Services

Do you need construction services? Do you need expert design or architectural services?

These variables will be discussed further below, but let’s start with an example.

In Cypress, Texas, these are the starting costs for a full renovation (without changes to the layout) of a standard full bathroom with basic services from a general contractor:

  • Full bathroom renovation costs begin at $15,500.
  • Mid-grade full-bathroom renovation costs start at $24,500.
  • High-end full-bathroom renovation costs start at $35,500.

We want you to know exactly how much your home remodeling project will cost, so our price estimates include all materials, labor, overhead costs, and a standard margin for the general contractor.

Size: How Do Dimensions Affect Bathroom Remodeling Costs in Cypress, Texas?

This may seem obvious, but the larger your bathroom, the more costly your renovation project will be. But it’s not a simple calculation because what matters most isn’t the footprint but the fixtures and finishes that will fill that space. More plumbing fixtures like toilets, sinks, showers, and so on mean higher costs. Here are some ways to estimate the size of your bathroom remodeling project:

  • Half bathrooms, known as powder rooms, usually have only a sink and a toilet. A half bath typically has 1-2 fixtures.
  • Full bathrooms typically include a sink, toilet, bathtub, or shower. A full bath typically has 3-4 fixtures.
  • Primary bathrooms, also known as master bathrooms, typically have a large vanity area with two sinks and a toilet, bathtub, or shower. A primary bath usually has 4-5 fixtures.
  • Deluxe primary bathrooms typically have two sinks and an extended vanity, a spacious shower or a shower and separate tub, and a toilet that may be enclosed separately. A deluxe primary bathroom usually has five or more fixtures.

There is a wide range of bathroom fixtures available for any size bathroom, from budget to ultra-luxury. The suite of fixtures required will be determined by your style preferences, budget, and the size of the space and will include a sink, faucet, vanity, shower head, toilet, bathtub, and accessories. The low end of small bathroom fixtures is $1,500, with prices ranging up to $15,000.

Finish level: How Bathroom Design Affects Cypress, Texas Remodeling Costs

Finish level refers to the quality and cost of fixtures, materials, and finishes. These include wall treatments, vanity materials, fabrication, flooring options, and the brands and models of sinks, faucets, and fixtures you select. The higher the level of completion, the faster your costs will rise.

Budget Finish

Budget materials are typically “big box” stores or IKEA off-the-shelf items. This includes stock vanities, Daltile and Pergo tiles under $5/square foot, and Delta, Moen, and Pfister fixtures.

Mid-Grade Finish

Mid-grade materials are a great balance between cost and quality. This includes vanities from Design House, Fresca, and Signature Hardware, tile from TileBar, and fixtures from American Standard, Hansgrohe, and Kohler.

High-End Finish

With high-end materials, quality and craftsmanship go above and beyond what is usually expected. This category also includes custom work. This includes tiles from Clé Tile, Ann Sacks, and Artistic Tile, vanities from Duravit, Robern, and DXV, and fixtures from Kallista and Brizo.

Luxury Finish

When it comes to customization, craftsmanship, and materials, luxury means going above and beyond. Brands like THG Paris, Lefroy Brooks, and Samuel Heath come to mind.

Scope: Rip-And-Replace VS. Gut Bathroom Renovation in Cypress, Texas

The type and amount of work that needs to be done are referred to as project scope, and it can impact which professionals you’ll need to hire. We divide the scope into the following broad categories (a contractor’s estimate for your renovation will be much more detailed, including costs for the exact fixtures and finishes):

Full Renovation 

A complete renovation entails replacing all of the old fixtures and finishes with new ones and leaving everything else in place. As a result, the layout is effectively the same before and after the renovation. This is the simplest way to reimagine your space, and it can often be completed with just a licensed general contractor partner.

Gut Renovation

Dropping walls, rewiring electrical, and rerouting plumbing lines are all part of a gut renovation, which involves stripping the room down to the studs and subfloor to change the layout of the space. This type of transformational project will necessitate professional design and architectural services, as well as permitting and licensed general contractors, to ensure that the work is done safely and in accordance with the codes.

Services: Bathroom Remodeling Services in Cypress, Texas, and How They Affect Costs

The two primary services to consider when renovating your bathroom are the build and design services. Depending on what you need, you can hire different types of firms.

Build Service With a General Contractor 

Your general contractor would handle demolition and construction services. Some general contractors are classified as build-only companies, which means they do not provide full professional design services. A contractor might offer various services even within the “build-only” category. Some will only work with finished plans from a professional designer, while others will help you carry out the vision you have in mind. Still, others are more likely to offer creative advice and suggestions on material and fixture choices or even rough visualizations for spatial layout.

A contractor’s pricing may be competitive due to a combination of service level, experience, and factors such as firm size and overhead. We recommend contacting a few different contractors to determine what level of service is best for you.

Architect or Interior Designer Design Services

Creative design and technical design are two types of design services. You’ll work with an architect or interior designer to reimagine the space for creative design service, which is almost always optional. This additional layer of service will typically cost 10 to 20 percent of your construction budget, depending on the level of service included in your design package (though not all companies base their fees on construction costs — Some may charge a flat fee based on the scope of the project and the anticipated duration, for example). So, for a $40,000 bathroom renovation, you should budget $4,000 to $8,000 for your architect or designer.

For projects requiring permits, such as gut renovations, technical design expertise in the form of an architect (or sometimes a structural engineer) is required. Their primary responsibility is to ensure the project is completed properly and safely.

What is a Full-Service, Design-Build Firm? 

If you need design and construction services, you can hire a professional designer or architect and a general contractor separately. However, another option has distinct advantages: hiring a design-build firm — a general contractor with dedicated professional design under one roof. This means you’ll work with the same company from planning and design to construction. Aside from the continuity, which can often save time in the process, some clients value the working relationship because it allows for more seamless coordination, which can even help to keep your project on budget.
