Small bathrooms are often less expensive to remodel than larger bathrooms because they have less square footage. This means fewer materials involved to make them look brand new, and their cost will be on the low range of the chart above since you need less of them or their smaller sizes to fit in the bathroom. The cost of labor will also be lower because the time spent to remodel a small bathroom won’t be as long as a large bathroom, unless the professionals run into snags with the electricity or plumbing. However, there is still a lot of heavy lifting, planning and general time involved in the process. Here are some cost factors you might deal with in the midst of a small bathroom remodel:

To make the bath bright instead of boring, the homeowner turned to paint, beaded board, fresh fabrics, new fixtures, classic tile, and a bit of off-the-shelf millwork. The focal point, however, is the new vanity made from pipe, a slab of limestone, and a drop-in sink. This DIY project is half the cost of retail.
