There’s no need for a full bathroom remodel when you can make your bathroom more functional and stylish by installing new fixtures. Update the shower with a more adjustable shower head or there are even models that mimic rainfall! New sink faucets, towel racks, cabinet hardware or mirrors are other effective choices. Change out your fixtures and you will update your style with out breaking your budget.
If you are just updating a bathroom, you will probably not need plumbing or electrical work. Since this article is referenced to a small bathroom, the costs here are way too high for labor unless you are in Manhattan. $9k for general labor is insane. A small bathroom should cost you $1-2k labor for reframing, concrete board, tile, toilet, vanity and accessories install. Texture and paint should be another $400-600 tops for a SMALL bathroom.
First, you need to identify the proper way to fix the problem. If the entire plastic piece has broken off, you need to be sure that you allow proper cure time for the piece to dry once you glue it on. Most importantly, you need the proper adhesive. You will want the adhesive to be waterproof/water resistant (this part of the shower is exposed to water). You will need it to withstand a temperature of 105 degrees (the hot water temperature tolerable for a hot shower by humans).
And of course you can save additional money by doing some of the work yourself. You can probably save $500 to $600 for just doing the demolition and painting yourself. But be careful not to take on tasks that can create problems for the contractor. Tile installation consists of nearly half the labor costs in a bathroom renovation but be warned that this is hard and tedious work that will likely take you two or three times as long as a professional and may not end up looking very good.
