Other items on the budget to redo the bathroom

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 demolition of the floor and screed. Finally, there is to consider the complexity in the demolition of the bathroom tiles and the dismantling of the previous electrical and plumbing system. Do you have any windows or doors to replace? Add about 60-80 euros for the disassembly of the fixtures and any subframes.

The cost of the bathroom must always be included and clearly specified in the entry of the bathroom renovation estimate disposal in authorized landfill and all the charges including where to avoid surprises!

Bathroom plumbing: water points cost

When you decide to redo the bathroom plumbing you need to calculate how many water points we need and we want to use in our bathroom. Let's assume that it is a bathroom of about 6 square meters. There are generally 4 water points (toilet, sink, tub and bidet). The average cost per water point is 200-230 euros. Cost which includes the necessary ducting and fittings. 

Bathroom electrical system: cost of light points

For the electrical system of the bathroom we must consider the light points in our bathroom with an average cost of € 45 per light point. Including plate, new switch and ducts. 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. For example, if we consider standard tiles costing 20 € / sqm, add an average cost of 30 € / sqm for installation. 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 the walls where there will be no sanitary ware.

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 for only one side. If an average height of a modern room is 270 cm and we have tiled up to 160 cm of the bathroom, 110 cm will remain to be painted.

Which the average cost of painting with shaving? Generally it is around € 15 per square meter. Obviously the costs also vary for the choice of painting. Our advice is to apply two coats of clear washable water-based paint.
