New bathroom cabinets can spruce up your investment property. Whether prefabricated or custom-built, the cost depends on a variety of factors. The following sections explain the average cost of bathroom cabinets.
Prefabricated Bathroom Cabinets
Sold in big box stores, prefabricated cabinets are available in many different styles. You can find models in various sizes and materials, from vanities to medicine cabinets. Below are examples of the average cost of prefabricated bathroom cabinets.
The general price range for a single-sink prefabricated bathroom vanity is $200 to $800. However, size and materials affect the price, with a 6-foot single vanity costing from $800 to $2100.
The countertop is an important factor in the price of a pre-made bathroom vanity. Most prefabricated models come with a countertop, but you may have to buy the countertop separately. The price varies depending on the material. For example, granite costs as little as $5 to $60 per square foot, while quartz costs about $75.
Some prefabricated bathroom cabinets are designed to be mounted on the wall. These models provide storage without using floor space. Size, as well as the quality of materials, determine the cost. Pre-made wall-mounted cabinets range from $25 for economy models to $300 for better quality cabinets.
Medicine cabinets have a wide price range, depending on size and materials. Economical, recessed or surface-mounted models cost $15 to $100 and are usually made of plastic or stainless steel. More stylish options of higher grade materials run from $500 to $1200. Larger, designer-grade cabinets come with higher price tags, up to $6000 or more. Higher-priced models may include additional features such as lighting and electrical outlets.
Pre-made, stand-alone models have a wide price range. Many variables can determine the price, such as the number of doors and drawers. Depending on the size and materials, the cost can be as little as $40 or as much as $500.
Custom Bathroom Cabinets
Custom-made bathroom cabinets have a variety of cost factors, including materials, size and construction. The price typically runs from $75 to $250 per square foot. Finish work can cost an additional $50 to $100 per linear foot. For 20 to 40 square feet of master bath cabinets, the price can range from $700 to $7000.
For example, a professional cabinetmaker can charge $500 to $2800 to build a custom vanity. That price includes materials for the countertop, which can cost anywhere from $5 to $135 per square foot.
Bathroom Cabinet Installation Cost
The cost of professional cabinet installation depends on the complexity of the project. Does the project involve intricate shapes and cuts? Will a wall have to be removed?
The average installation cost can run from $200 to $1000. If a new water line and drain is required for a vanity, be prepared to pay an additional $45 to $200 per hour for a plumber. Installing a pre-made vanity typically costs $300 to $500.
