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
  • Insulation
  • 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
