Investment Properties 101: High-End Bathroom Remodel Cost

September 8th, 2021 |

A bathroom remodel is a sure way to add pizzazz to your Boston-area investment property. Creating a luxurious, relaxing oasis requires specialized work, such as plumbing and electrical. Of course, the necessary skilled labor and quality materials add up to higher costs. Below are some average prices to help you understand a high-end bathroom remodel cost.

Average High-End Bathroom Remodel Cost 

The total price for a bathroom remodel depends on size, materials, type of work, and other factors. Complex work such as relocating fixtures or increasing the bathroom’s footprint can increase the price. The average high-end bathroom remodel costs run from $50,000 to $65,000, with labor accounting for 60 to 70 percent of the final price. The good news is that your return on investment can be as high as 70 percent upon resale of your property.


Any bathroom remodel is bound to include fixtures. Whether it’s a double sink or a walk-in shower with multiple rain shower heads, new fixtures can update the look and functionality of a bathroom. For a high-end bathroom remodel, fixtures are a significant part of the cost.

  • Bathtub — $6,000 to $8,000
  • Shower — $6,000 to $8,000
  • Toilet — $550 to $780
  • Sink — $3,500 to $5,500

Flooring and Walls

Updated walls or flooring can add drama and transform a bathroom’s appearance. You can choose from a variety of tiles and hardwoods to create the luxury look you want. Radiant floor heating is a welcome addition on those cold winter mornings. Here are some examples of flooring costs including labor: 

  • Porcelain floor or wall tile — $12 to $19 per square foot
  • Natural stone floor tile — $13 to $20 per square foot

Custom Vanity

Custom cabinets add quality craftsmanship that you won’t find in pre-made cabinets. Are you considering traditional style, or do you prefer a distressed, rustic vibe? A skilled cabinetmaker can create the look you want. Luxury custom cabinets can cost up to $8,000 to $13,000, depending on the size, materials and work involved:
