The above figures place the bathroom update at $250 per square foot. This pricing structure assumes that carpenters charge an average of $70 per hour, electricians between $65 to $85 per hour, painters between $20 and $35 per hour and plumbers between $45 and $65 per hour.
Speaking of reusing – even though we couldn’t reuse the tile, I was lucky enough to find a pedestal sink and medicine cabinet that exactly match the existing sink and cabinet we currently have, for $238. I got so lucky! Just think if I couldn’t find a matching sink and medicine cabinet to complete the look we are going for?! We’d be spending at least $400 for four new pieces.
So after water damage that occured in early September, after dealing with the insurance company, and after many months of hard work, our master bath was ready for us to use in late November! I cannot say how happy I am with this bathroom. I sometimes just stand in there and stare, still just can’t believe the visions in my head are really here, in my house, and look just like what I envisioned for this space!

Right now, one of the biggest trends in bathrooms is also one that budget DIYers can pull off with style. The trend is using old dressers as sink pedestals. You simply cut out the top of the dresser to accommodate a sink insert, cut into or remove interior drawers as necessary, and cut holes in the back for plumbing. These dresser sinks” can sell for thousands of dollars in retail stores, but you can easily make your own with a budget dresser, some patience, and the right tools.
