How Much Will My Edmonton Bathroom Remodel Cost?

Does your family run into morning traffic jams in the bathroom? Is the tone of your day set by dealing with the inefficient or unpleasant bathroom that you get ready in? Are you looking to raise the value of your home? If you answered yes to any of these questions, a bathroom remodel might be the right move for you.

Remodeling your Edmonton bathroom is a great way to increase your enjoyment of your home, and its functionality. Additionally, a bathroom remodel gives you one of the best ROIs (return on investments) for your money. Whether you plan to stay in your home for a long time, or you want to make it more appealing for future buyers, a bathroom remodel is a solid investment.

But how much will it cost? Turns out that’s a tricky question to answer, but we are here to help. Read on to learn why it can be hard to predict the cost of a bathroom remodel, what average costs you can expect to find and why, and how we can help you to have the bathroom of your dreams.

What Does an Average Bathroom Remodel Include?

Bathroom remodels can be pretty basic: replacing the toilet and vanity, re-tiling the floor, and painting. Or they can be complex: changing locations of the various pieces, adding or removing walls, gutting the entire room, and starting from scratch. Many remodels are somewhere in between. Bathrooms include two to four pieces. Powder rooms, also known as washrooms or half-baths have two pieces: a toilet and a sink. Three-piece rooms include a toilet, sink, and shower or tub/shower combo. Four-piece rooms have a toilet, a sink, a tub, and a shower. The more pieces you are replacing, changing, or moving, the more your remodel will cost.

Why is it Hard to Determine the Cost?

Every bathroom remodel, like every kitchen remodel, is different. The scope of work that needs to be done, the current condition of the room, the age of the house, the finishes you choose, how much tile work you want to be done and what style–all of these factors come into play in determining the cost of your specific bathroom remodel. 

The goals you’re trying to meet with your remodel also affect the cost. Are you trying to add an upscale bathroom with the hope of increasing your home’s appeal and value to sell? Do you want to make your bathroom accessible for yourself or a family member and need to widen doorways and lower sinks? Are you trying to make it more kid-friendly, or do you want a private retreat for yourself at the end of the day? Your answers to these questions will affect the scope of work and types of materials you choose, which will impact your final cost.

What Factors Come Into Play?

Room Size

A basic hallway bathroom (generally around 40 square feet) will require less materials and labor than a master bath (where anywhere from 40 to 100 square feet is average). The larger the room the higher the cost of renovation.

Complex Tile Work

That Reno Guy is known for our beautiful tile work. Basic tile work for our bathrooms consists of porcelain 12×24 tiles or ceramic Subway tiles, laid in either a stacked or staggered format. If you want more complex work, we’re happy to oblige. The cost does go up because of the installation labor required. Shampoo niches and benches are common upgrades that also add to your total cost. Read this article for some beautiful tile options for your bathroom remodel.

Moving Plumbing and Mechanics

If you want to keep your bathroom remodel as low-cost as possible, try to keep the mechanics in the same place. Changing the layout of the bathroom–moving the plumbing and/or the electrical–is the most expensive change you can make. It’s hard to predict the cost of layout changes because it depends on what you want to be changed and how accessible everything is. Sometimes we have to drop the ceiling on the room below the bathroom to access the plumbing, and that can easily add $5000 to your total cost.

What Fixtures You Choose

For the average bathroom, the plumbing fixture package starts at $2500 and goes up from there. Brass and stainless steel fixtures resist rust, corrosion, and high heat, but cost more than nickel, for example. We can help you choose the best options for your price range and needs.

Showers and Tubs

Shower glass plays a huge role in the total cost of the bathroom. The size and style you need, whether you want framed or frameless, and what style of doors you want–all of this changes your bottom line. Again, we can help you make the best choices for your budget and the aesthetic you want in your bathroom. It’s also important to note that showers and bathtubs both will be waterproofed to industry standards, whether you replace those features or update the ones you already have. 

So What Does an Average Bathroom Remodel Cost?

For That Reno Guy, an average bathroom remodel for a basic, 8×5 hallway bath with a tub runs between $14,000-$16,000. Hallway bathrooms with showers start at around $18,000. Master bathrooms with a tub/shower combo usually start in the high $20,000s. Keep in mind that these prices include everything from demolition to painting. We’re your one-stop shop for a complete bathroom remodel in your Edmonton home.

We've dealt with many businesses and tradespeople when renovating past homes and building our current home. Joe and his team are the best we've ever worked with. They showed up when they said they would, completed what was agreed upon, and were very respectful of our home. They took extra measures to reduce drywall dust and always cleaned up after themselves. We had a few smaller projects that needed to be completed around our home and had a hard time finding someone to do it. Other businesses would either tell us they didn't have time for our projects, couldn't fit us in for months, or they would quote a price that was insanely high. Joe not only agreed to take on our smaller projects, but he did so in a timely manner at a fair price. He's the only guy we'll call in the future. Happy to have found him.

Joe did a complete bathroom renovation for us late last year (2022) and we couldn't be happier! From our first meeting with Joe we could tell immediately he had the knowledge and experience we were searching for. Joe went above and beyond to create exactly the space we were looking for and completed the job earlier than quoted. We have, and will always recommend Joe to our friends and family. We can't wait to start our next project with Joe!

Absolutely excellent quality! I love perfection and that’s what I received.

If you are doing renovations, That Reno Guy is the call you need to make. Joe was great!

We had Joe complete our ensuite renovation and he was great to deal with from quoting through to the final details. He is easy to work and communicate with and I would highly recommend him (and have).

Joe Woronzow just finished a renovation of my ensuite . He expanded my shower into what was an existing pantry space, and replaced all the fixtures, tiled the floor and installed all the accessories. He did a beautiful job and his tile work and attention to detail is second to none. The whole experience was a pleasure. He was a great communicator throughout the process. His quote was detailed accurate and fair. His associate Dave, did the plumbing and I am so pleased with the final results! I recommend 'The Reno Guy ' for your next renovation project and look forward to working with Joe for my kitchen renovation in the near future . Thanks Joe!

We found ourselves having to do a basement renovation unexpectedly and part had to be done in a short timeframe. From the moment we called for a quote through to the end of the project Joe has been an amazing communicator, very understanding and met every challenge with professionalism and a great attitude. Due to no fault of Joe or his team we had a delay in the project yet Joe and his team did everything they could to keep moving forward to meet our requirements. They worked long hours, weekends and what a great bunch of people. Everyone he brought in were happy and very helpful. We are so happy with the work he’s done we are already talking with him about working on our main floor next. We definitely recommend Joe and those he works with. What a great group. Our dog Finn misses you, Joe, very much.

Joe recently did a bathroom reno for us and we couldn't be happier with the bathroom. Joe and his team were great to work with, professional, approachable, tidy, on time. Joe was great at communicating and checking in with us throughout the project. We so appreciated the quality of the work and finishing details. Can't wait to have Joe do our next bathroom reno!. Would highly recommend Joe and his company, That Reno Guy.

I was extremely pleased with the work done in our ensuite. The work turned out better than I imagined. Honestly, our ensuite is now my favorite room in the house. It was professional and quick.

Amazing service, and very knowledgeable.

I was recommended Joe by a friend for my master bathroom remodel. From Vapor proofing and in floor heating, to the precision of his tile setting, we couldn’t be happier with Joe’s quality of work.

The Reno Guy Ltd. just finished our project - refacing kitchen cabinets, building a new cabinet and changing window frame. We are very happy with their work. They are responsible, professional, communicative and pleasure to work with. Provided a quote and completed the work with no issues or surprises. Very easy to deal with. We definitely will hire them for our future projects. We would highly recommend them. Thanks again Joe, Dale and Chris, I love my kitchen.

We hired ‘That Reno Guy’ and his team to remove our existing granite island top and cut and install butcher block. From first contact to last, Joe was impressive. He responded almost immediately and continued to communicate through the entire process. He helped us find the product we needed at the price point we wanted. We are extremely pleased with the final product. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ‘That Reno Guy’. Thank you.

Joel is simply just amazing and you can see this in his end product. Highly attentive to detail and prides himself on quality and customer service.

I have used Joe a few times now. He is always professional and does an excellent job. He is easy to deal with and completes work in a timely manner with follow up to ensure we are satisfied. I highly recommend!

Joe and his team are amazing! Professional, quality workmanship from people who care about their customer. I have worked with Joe and his team on several projects and have always more than impressed with the finished product. Easy to work with, on time and on budget, always.

If you are looking for someone to renovate your home, look no further than That Reno Guy. Joe renovated all four of our bathrooms and walk-in closet last spring. His work is exceptional. The final product exceeded our expectations. Joe provided accurate quotes, went out his way to find low prices on all of the materials without sacrificing quality, he was very punctual and never left without cleaning up the work area at then end of each day. The project was completed on time and under budget! Joe comes highly recommended to anyone seeking professional, high quality home renovations. I have no doubt he is the best.

Professional workmanship throughout the entire process. They definitely know what they are doing, phenomenal and outstanding service. Recommend to anyone looking for quality work done right.

Joe and his crew were an integral part of our home build. My wife and I were our own general contractors and this was our first home build. Joe was professional, always on time and came in at or below our budget. We had Joe install Kitchen/ Bathroom Tile, Shower Tile, Back Splash, Hard Wood Flooring, Vinyl Planking and Carpet on the stairs. All the work was performed to a very high standard. We would highly recommend and use Joe again.

Fabulous team to work with, from decor ideas to quality of work couldn’t be happier! I highly recommend That Reno Guy, they are insightful and reasonably priced, they replaced carpets and hardwood in our home as well as completed kitchen and bathroom tile and a complete master suite redo.

Joe installed all of my flooring throughout my new home, as well as all of the tile, including some very challenging features. Price competitive, professional and timely. But the absolute best part is the attention to detail on quality. No short cuts. No 'good enough'. His workmanship was exceptional, and would have no problem referring to anyone.


Can't recommend Joe the owner of That Reno Guy enough. We had a few quotes done to get our basement bathroom finished which where all very competitive with one another but all 3 guys we had come look at it did not seem very professional at all Holmes on Homes redux came to mind. Months later a friend recommended Joe, his professionalism, communication and attention to detail is far above the rest. We where very satisfied with the whole process and blown away with the final results.
