A Trusted Bathroom Remodel Company In Baltimore Maryland

Average Bathroom Remodel Cost

Online, you’ll find average remodeling costs that are highly misleading. Or a high-end job completed for $50K.

I think it’s important to get relevant information from local experts, specific to your needs. Because an informed client is a smart client.

Being transparent with pricing up-front so clients can see the full picture and plan better is one of our core values here at Blue Star Home Design

So I’ll try to approach the discussion about cost from multiple angles – from the size of the bathroom and specific costs to the value you’re adding to your home.

The Value Of A Bath Remodel

When planning your project, it’s important to take into consideration that you’re actually making an investment in your home. And like any investment, there’s a return on your investment.

According to Remodeling’s 2022 Cost vs Value report for Baltimore, for an upscale Bath Remodel you’re getting 48.8% back when you sell your home.

So you invest the money now, enjoy your bath for years to come, and when it’s time to move on – you’re still benefiting from an investment done years ago.

Choosing The Right Contractor.. Why Choose Blue Star?

A bath remodeling project is more than just paying for materials and labor. Here are some of the contractors’ hidden costs that you may not be aware of. These will help you weed out contractors that are underbidding and are highly likely to underperform.

Hidden Surprises

It’s not unusual to find water damage, mold, or wood rot before or during remodels. We highly recommend fixing the issues before moving forward. You should always be kept in the loop on how your remodel goes.

Unexpected Issues In Your Walls

It’s not unusual to find water damage, mold, or wood rot before or during remodels. We highly recommend fixing the issues before moving forward. You should always be kept in the loop on how your remodel goes.

Cost of Mistakes

I know what you’re thinking, “I shouldn’t have to pay for other people’s mistakes”. And you’re absolutely right. Unfortunately, there are people working throughout your project and people aren’t perfect. Sometimes the materials that are shipped suffer damage and need to be replaced.

Whatever the issue, a businessman needs to compensate for the unforeseen so he can overdeliver. That means that materials should be marked up by around 10-20% to cover for any little mistakes that may happen.


And then, there’s the cost of materials that can widely range based on the options that you choose. I’ll dive into these below. If you only consider putting a cost of $6,000 on these and we add everything up we end up with a total that exceeds $15K.

Protecting Your Home And Keeping It Clean

Sure, you’re simply remodeling the bathroom, but other rooms of your home will be affected too, one way or another. You’ll have to move things around, people will move in and out, there’s going to be dust and debris, and your home will be in disarray for a few days. That’s why it’s important to make sure your contractor protects any areas of your home that won’t be under construction. We apply protecting sheets (and tape) on your furniture, windows, doors, and keep the dust to a minimum by always cleaning the work site. And once your remodel is complete, we’ll have our professional cleaners come in and leave the bathroom spotless and ready for you to use right away.

Budgeting for Time

One thing that our clients value most in our bath remodeling service is my word when it comes to delivering the project on set times.

It’s uncomfortable as-is to have strangers roaming around in your home. It’s unpleasant to not be able to enjoy the privacy of the master bathroom while in the process of remodeling.

With that said, it’s our top priority to give you your bathroom back as soon as possible. That’s why we get more people involved in our projects than other contractors. That’s why we plan ahead and notify you in time to offset any issues that may appear down the line.

When the average time in the industry for a master bath remodel is eight weeks, we try to overdeliver and give you back your privacy in about 4 weeks since we have everything to get the project started.

Decreasing Costs And DIY

As information is abundant, you may come across videos that give off the impression that a certain task is easy to do. I mean how hard is it to demo the bathroom and save $1000? Not that hard if you avoid damaging the pipes or electrical work. But if you’re unlucky you’ll be looking to spend more to fix the damages.

Set your own tile? Sure, but if it’s not aligned properly you’re stuck with looking at it for the following 15 years – every day. Setting up vanity and cabinets can look easy until you end up trying to align doors and drawers.

No matter the size, quality installation and attention to fine details are key. There’s a reason why pediatricians don’t operate on the brain. We all have our specialty and area of expertise. What may look like a fun side-project may end up in a prolonged and frustrating experience.

To give yourself the best chance of success, it would be wise to ask yourself a few questions before you decide on anything.

My intention is not to scare you. I’m sharing this with all the love. I’ve seen my fair share of jobs gone wrong from both homeowners as well as cheap contractors.

The homeowner always ends up spending more, in the end, to fix things while wasting precious time.
