With bathroom remodeling, there are costs of finished products like flooring, shower bases, bathtubs cabinets, countertops, and other bathroom fixtures. These products, however, don’t usually have the same prices as large appliances or full cabinet and countertop installations. Bathroom remodeling is a laborious process than other home remodels.

A couple of the larger things that can cause a change in price is the plumbing and bathroom design. For instance if you need to change the location of a sink, toilet or bathtub, sometimes some comprehensive plumbing changes will be required, creating an uphill cost of labor and expenses.

Another addition that adds labor and expenses the addition of bathroom flooring and shower tile. Even the size & type of the tile or flooring will add more cost. Small tiles might cost less from the manufacturer but require more labor to install. Inserts and backsplashes for your tile can also get expensive, for instance some inserts can cost $12-$40 to cut per insert.
