Bathrooms are one of the most popular rooms to remodel, coming in second to only the kitchen. The average cost of a bathroom remodel in Chicago may seem expensive and complex at first glance but keep in mind that dated bathrooms can drive down a home’s resale value, while a well-done remodel can attract buyers, make a higher listing price on a home seem reasonable, and help you get the look and feel you want for your home.
Bathroom remodels have proven to have some of the highest returns on investment of any work you can do to your home, but with all the moving parts, you’ll want to ensure you understand all the costs associated with your bathroom remodeling job. The overall cost will depend on your project goals, including bathroom size and material selection, but generally, a larger bathroom will require a larger budget. Whatever budget you determine, be sure to take at least twenty percent and set it aside for inevitable surprises that may arise along the way.
