Cost for a Universal Design Bathroom Remodel

If you want to make your existing bathroom safer and easier to use for your aging loved ones, a universal design bathroom remodel can help you do just that! The cost would include:

  • Updating an existing 5 X 7 ft bathroom to be wheelchair-accessible and adding a zero-threshold, 36-inch wide door
  • Installing flat-panel electrical switches at sitting level
  • Replacing the existing toilet with a comfort height toilet with an elongated bowl and bidet-type seat
  • Removing the existing bathtub and replacing it with a barrier-free tile walk-in shower with an adjustable shower head, a fold-out seat, a thermostatic mixing valve, and a bi-directional glass door
  • Laying a new luxury vinyl tile floor with electric radiant heating
  • Adding an adaptive living vanity with easy-grasp handles and an adjustable mirror
  • Incorporating LED lights, infrared ceiling lights, a night light, and an ultra-quiet vent fan with humidity-sensing controls to space
  • Installing ceramic tiles on the walls with two contrasting color stripes
  • Integrating nine towel bars that can support up to 250 pounds
  • Creating storage that is easy to access from a seated position

This will cost $42,543. If you decide to sell your home, you can expect to recover $24,589 or 57.8% of your total cost
