How Long Does It Take to Remodel a Bathroom?If you’re looking to get started on a bathroom remodel for your home, then you may be wondering just how long a bathroom remodeling project will take. Most homeowners who need a simple shower replacement or tub-to-shower conversion can get their project completed in as little as one or two days. But while some bathrooms only need minor renovations, others may require a full gutting.

Which Type of Bathroom Remodel do You Need?

There are two main types of bathroom remodels: a full bathroom remodel or a wet-area bathroom remodel. Full bathroom remodels are much more hands on, and they typically require more time to complete than wet-area bathroom remodels.

So which type of bathroom remodel does your home need, and how long will each one take to complete?

Full Bathroom Remodels

When you look around your bathroom, do you notice cracks in your sink or warped floor tiles? If so, you may need a full bathroom remodel. A remodel to this extent will replace all parts of your bathroom, including:

  • Bathtubs
  • Showers
  • Sinks
  • Toilets
  • Flooring
  • Wall tiling
  • Paint
  • Mirrors
  • Lighting fixtures

Many older homes have bathroom appliances, floors, and walls that were not built with high-quality materials, which results in water stains and ventilation problems developing down the road. In the worst cases, you may even have mold or water leaks. If these are problems you’re experiencing in your home, then a full bathroom remodel may be the best option for you. This type of remodel can be quite invasive and thorough, so it may take up to one full month to complete.

Wet-Area Bathroom Remodels

While a full bathroom remodel involves renovating your entire bathroom, a wet-area bathroom remodel will only focus on your bathtub or shower. So, if you’re happy with all areas of your bathroom except for where you bathe, then a wet-area bathroom remodel is perfect for you!

Services often performed in a wet-area bathroom remodel are:

  • Shower installations
  • Bathtub installations
  • Tub-to-shower conversions
  • Shower-to-tub conversions
  • Wall surround installations
  • Bath and shower liner installations
  • Bath accessory installations

There are many ways to upgrade the wet area of your bathroom to enhance both functionality and appearance. This type of remodel tends to be more affordable than full bathroom remodels, and they take much less time to complete. A wet-area bathroom remodel typically does not exceed one week.

Kelley was our installer and he did an excellent job. Everyone from sales trailer at the Home Show, the salesman, the scheduler and the installer were all very professional and helpful. Very happy with the work and will definitely recommend you in the future. No more tub!
The quality of the glass shower was way above expectations. I had never seen a shower this good or well made. It has a barn door principle. We love our new bathroom. They did everything. We bought tiles and a new vanity which they installed. We really loved that and they did a wonderful job.
Very happy with my experience! Extremely professional and the project was done ahead of schedule!
