Bathroom Remodel

Would anyone have an idea on what an average price would be for labor on an average sized bathroom that needs tile (wall and floor), tub, all fixtures, enclosure, vanity/sink, and toilet all replaced?
I was trying to get a breakdown on labor versus materials. I have a couple of bids, (3000-6000) but breakdowns on the bids i don't have. I will ask the contractors to break it down for me later.
So, what might be an average price for one complete bathroom remodel?
Thanks, W

this is completely dependant upon the quality of work, the size of your bath, how desperate the contractors are for business, the quality of fixtures chosen, and literally dozens of other factors. it could easily be anywhere from $1k to $100k. you generally get what you pay for, unless you're providing a lot of the labor yourself.

It is really hard to answer a question about pricing without some idea of where you are located. Labor varies widely by area. Whether all the various parts of the job are being done by licensed in their field or a jack of all trades, etc etc etc. also GREATLY affects price.
Were these bids labor only? If materials are included, what quality?
People here need a little more info to help.

That's a good question. I'm in the process of remodeling the bathroom myself. Here are my costs so far, and I'm only buying the materials. The contractors will probably charge you between 1-2k in addition.
Bathroom - 11x8 Toilet - 2 piece American Standard Cadet $120 Tile - On sale for $1 per sq. foot - cost around $100 Tile Materials (grout, backerboard, sponge, etc) - $100 Cabinet - Demolished and replace the whole thing - $400 Marble looking Sink - $200 Whirpool Tub - $500
Good luck on this project.

I just re-did my 8x8 bathroom, I did it all myself, and it cost $4,000.00 so if you can get a deal in that area with what you want take it....of course that was in Canadian funds

I did mine myself. A 5' shower base with two seats, Styrofoam insulation in the walls, tile on the floor and the walls of the shower, replaced the window with glass block, a pedestal sink, American Standard Cadet commode, 12 doors opening to cabinet space created by adding 2x2's to the 2x6's in the 'water wall', mirrors attached to three of the doors positioned over the sink, and opening so as to give the same effect as the commercial ones, and a humidity-sensor controlling a vent fan. Total cost, besides the time, was about $720.

an average bathroom remodel in N.E. (gut to studs and joists) $8,000-$25,000
depending on personal preferences.
the last two full bathrooms I did were: 1 was $12,500 - ceramic tile , wainscoting wood walls, corian top.
1 was $23,000 - porcelain tiles , decorative tile walls , granite top. (tiles alone were almost $6000)

ask> the contractors to break it down for me later.

Why do you want a breakdown- are you going to write separate checks, one for labor, one for rmaterials?
If your goal is to negotiate a lower price, just tell the contractor you can't pay him X but you can offer him X minus whatever amount you think you want to pay.
Don't put him on the spot or ask him to do a materials/labor breakdown. It doesn't matter. Let him massage the numbers any way he wants to. He could price the job by charging 10 times the cost of the fixtures and provide free labor-- or charge you 10 times the going rate for labor and throw in the fixtures for free.
The only number that matters is the final price of the job.

It varies. I added a bathroom from scratch to a second floor and did most of the work myself. The plumber was $3800 (all new pipes to second floor from basement, install and warranty double vanity, toilet, stand-up shower and bath; electrical was $1,000, including ALL new wiring and the best fan you can buy.
I had to rebuild the floor and did tile and waincoating myself---totalled about $15k with high-end fixtures, plaster (vs. sheetrock, it's an old house), new door, lumber, corian counter AND shower wall panels and a good cherry cabinet.
You can see how materials can raise the price. This is in New England, where labor ain't cheap.

I know it seems like such a simple question. But it ain't.
From tear out to completion, there are too many variables.
There is no such thing as an average bathroom remodel. All that matters is what your bathroom will cost.

Why?

The last four remodels I did were: 4200, 8600, 16800 and 38000. The average is 16900. (See what I mean -- it doesn't help you.)
