Master Bathroom Budget Breakdown

rustic-eclectic-bath

Thanks for all of your sweet feedback on our master bath reveal!  We really do love how it came together and we love the price tag.  While it’s obviously one of the most expensive rooms in our home (bathrooms always are), but we did save money in some big ways.  Here’s our full budget breakdown:

MASTER BATH BUDGET BREAKDOWN

PLANKED WALLS: 

All planks were original exterior planks from the house, so we re-purposed them on the walls here.  We used leftover white paint from the original reno, so this was a big budget-saver to add character.

TILE:

Read the bath progress post for more tile details. 

Shower Materials: $600 

The tile was under half of that, but the waterproof liner, shelf insert, corner seat, etc. adds up.  We bought the tile, but our tile guy purchased all of the other materials and we paid him for them.

Floor Materials: $300

The tile was $1.50/square foot, but we had a huge area to tile (150 square feet).

Labor: $3,000

Obviously, this was a huge cost for the room!  Laying tile is something Chris has done before , but it’s very time consuming and we would’ve needed to hire out the shower.  While this is really expensive, it didn’t surprise us for a standing tiled shower and 150 square feet of floor.

TILE TOTAL: $3,900

GLASS SHOWER DOOR: $1,000

You may remember that we were going to wait awhile on this door, but ended up finding someone to do it for much cheaper than expected.  We went with a frameless look, which was about $200 more, but we liked the look so much better that we went with that option.

SHOWER FIXTURE: $94

Delta Champagne Bronze

HEATED FLOORS: $921

A heating mat (NADWM-120-1050) – $716 (this depends on the size of the floor you’re installing it on and ours was a very huge floor!)

These products are from Warmup Heated Floor Systems.  You can read more about how we installed them here.

Thanks, Chaney! I completely forgot to include that! Our total was $921. It totally depends on the amount of space you’re trying to cover and ours was huge, so the heated floor mat was $716 and the thermostat was $205

Holly, oh my goodness….I TOTALLY forgot to put that number in the budget! Thank you for catching that. I visually went through the room to make sure I’d caught everything, but of course, you can’t see the heated floors 🙂 Hate I missed that initially! Our total on that was $921. You’ll see on the company’s website here there are no costs listed, you just get custom quotes because it completely depends on your size of space. Ours was HUGE, so the bulk of that cost was enough heated floor mat to cover our large floor space – $716. The Energy saving thermostat was $205!

Yes, Jenn, thank y’all for catching that! I totally forgot to include that in the budget breakdown! I’ve updated the post now, but the total was $921. It completely depends on the amount of floor space you’re trying to cover. Ours was HUGE, so the heated floor mat was $716 and the energy saving thermostat was $205

Everything looks great! We are starting a bathroom addition in a month or two! One question, is the $3k just for the tile labor or the labor of the whole bathroom?
