December 11, 2019
WatThe costs for renovating depend on a number of factors, such as the choice of material and style and the size of your bathroom. For example, you pay more for a bathroom with a luxurious finish and a large surface area than for a small bathroom with a simple finish. The price for a simple bathroom is around € 3,500, while for a luxury bathroom you can easily pay around € 10,000. Do you opt for a spa bath or steam room for a special wellness bathroom? Then the costs can be even higher, all depending on your own specific wishes.
Basic bathroom renovation
Is your budget limited? Then opt for a basic bathroom renovation. In this case it is best to opt for standard bathroom sanitary ware and there is a simple bathroom with a toilet, a shower and a stylish bathroom furniture with a single sink. You keep the original layout of the bathroom, but a new floor is laid with ceramic tiles and the walls are built from a combination of tiles and stucco. In this case, renovating a bathroom costs an average of € 3,500.
