My ensuite was about 18K, and powder room about 4. Vanity was 3K (6 foot double sink), tub was 2K floor standing faucet 700 bucks. Prices add up toilets range from 250 -1000! Then you add shower faucets, body jets, glass enclosure. Heated floor
Ensuite was stripped to studs and floor plan was rearranged, as well as adding a closet. It adds up quick!

Did you go with your $11K quote guy? I need someone, anyone, they don't even have to be especially good.
I did not.

I found a contractor who did an excellent job (he sub contracts specific jobs to ppl who knows what they're doing) for less, all cash.

We spent $40k on the ensuite, but that was a full gut out and reconfiguring. I don't have $1500 toilets though lol

My wife likes modern contemporary. So to me it looks like a boutique hotel washroom now. I would share a pic but my wife prefers keeping things private lol

Finishes can add up fast. Once you start looking at marble anything.

I have a large en suite that is very old, it would require a complete redo, im thinking of putting in some stone in some areas, a double glass shower with a nice feel to it, white cabinets that look high end, prob a free standing tub and some good floor that won't get dirty. I hear you can use porcelain to save a bit on finishes would like your thoughts. Also would be open to adding in some uber modern stuff but do not want to make it to crazy busy in there.

Please tell me you have heated floors and a steamer. This is the type of bathrooms Bryan @ HGTV does.

I'm super jealous.

Porcelain is a great way to save money. A lot of porcelain or even ceramic look really good. Glass is crazy expensive once it needs to be custom cut and same for the vanity.
You can save a lot by purchasing a free standing vanity as well.

Most likely curbless shower with high end finishes.

1.5 to 2 times the amount of labour?
