Bathroom renovation costs in Canberra
According to the Housing Industry Association, the average cost of a bathroom renovation in 2016 was approximately $18000. Remember, this is just an average – yours could be more or less.
A budget renovation in a small bathroom can be as low as $16000 while a major renovation in a larger bathroom can cost $25,000 or more.
There are good reasons for this large disparity in pricing, such as:
- Structural work
- Moving plumbing
- The cost of tiles and fittings
- Additions such as a skylight or window
- The size of the bathroom
- Whether the bathroom is timber framed or brick
- Whether the floor is timber, suspended concrete or concrete on ground
- The amount of electrical work required
- Complex room shapes
Because of these and other factors, bathroom renovations are generally divided into categories:
- Standard: This costs between $16,000 and $25,000 for the Building work
- Premium/luxury: This costs over $25,000 for the building works
