Major bath remodels cost more than $10,000

We've already posted about major kitchen remodel costs, and also the differences across different metro areas. But what about bathroom remodels? Let's check the data from the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies

First up, let's check how much major bathroom remodels cost homeowners on average in the U.S.:

$10,699 per major bathroom remodel

As we've mentioned before, this is the average across the U.S. and these numbers change significantly based on local markets. For example, average project costs are about two higher in New York than they are in Houston.

Because of the size and potential for not having to move pipes, bathrooms can be projects for the do-it-your-selfers out there. Make sure you can deal with installing toilets and sinks, putting in shower tile, etc. because you will not have the expertise of a professional and will have to invest your time (not included in the costs). 

So what are the averages for DIY and professional major bathroom remodels? It turns out that a professional major bath remodel costs on average 3x a DIY project in the U.S.:

$14,539 with a pro

$5,807 if you DIY
