Before rebuilding your bathroom ad hoc you need one demolition massive. Hardly anyone thinks about it. The previous bathroom demolition will have a cost per square meter: floor removal, tiles, bathroom fixtures and previous systems.
The first phase of removal is that of existing sanitary ware: the old tub, toilet, bidet, sinks. Then the workers will have to occupy themselves of the demolition of the floor and the screed. Finally, it is necessary to consider the complexity in the demolition of the bathroom tiles and the dismantling of the previous electric and hydraulic system. Do you have any windows or doors to replace? Add about 60-80 euro for the disassembly of the frames and any frames.

Bathroom plumbing: water points cost
When you decide to redo the bathroom plumbing, you need to calculate how many water points you need and want to use in our bathroom. Let's assume that this is a bathroom of around 6 sqm. Generally there are 4 water points (toilet, sink, tub and bidet). The average cost per water point is 200-230 euro. Cost where the necessary ducting and fittings are included.
Bathroom electrical system: cost of light points
For the electrical system of the bathroom we have to consider the light points of our bathroom with an average cost of 45 € to point light. Including plate and new switch and channels. The variations depend on the brand used in the materials.
Tile the bathroom: the laying
The first factor of cost modification in a bathroom is connected to the square meters of surface to be covered. If it is a small area you can play around without paying too much attention to the cost of the coverings. The situation is different for large bathrooms.
In the budget you will have to calculate not only the costs of the materials but also the laying. If, for example, we consider standard tiles with the cost 20 € / sqm add an average cost for the installation of 30 € / sqm. So the total cost is 50 € / sqm to tile a bathroom up to a height of 160cm. The height can vary (even reducing costs) up to 120cm for walls where there are no sanitary fittings.
Ceiling painting and non-tiling walls: example of an estimate per sqm
Once the tiles have been laid on the walls, all that remains is to paint the ceiling and the part of the other non-tiled walls if you have opted only for one side. If an average height of a modern room is 270 cm and we have tiled up to 160 cm in the bathroom, 110 will remain cm to be painted.
Which the average cost of painting with shaving? Generally it is around 15 € per sqm. Obvious that the costs also vary for the choice of the painting. Our advice is to apply two coats of clear washable water paint.
