post Post    

Bathroom cabinetry can vary from a basic vanity that supports a sink or sinks while hiding the plumbing and providing storage; to a medicine cabinet that provides storage behind a mirrored front; to extensive additional storage cabinets, including overhead cupboards. Bathroom cabinets can be prefabricated; semi-custom (where the consumer selects among a range of sizes, styles, finishes and configurations and the sections are made to order); or custom made.

Typical costs:

  • Prefabricated bathroom vanity cabinets start at $40-$150 for a single-sink model but typically cost $200-$800 and can cost $900-$1,500 depending on size, style, materials and whether it's set up for one sink or two. Semi-custom or custom vanity cabinets can cost $500-$3,800 or more. For details, see How Much Does a Bathroom Vanity Cost.
  • Medicine cabinets start at $15-$100 for economy-grade recessed or surface-mount models in plastic or stainless steel; cost $100-$500 for larger medicine cabinets made with more durable materials and stylish touches; $500-$1,200 for furniture-style medicine cabinets or those with options like lighting and interior power outlets; or $1,200-$6,000 or more for oversized sectional medicine cabinets made from premium construction materials by a high-end manufacturer or designer. Professional installation can add $100-$800 or more depending on the size and complexity of the medicine cabinet. For details, see How Much Does a Medicine Cabinet Cost.
  • Pre-made, stand-alone cabinets to add extra bathroom storage can cost $40-$500 or more depending on materials, size and the number of doors or drawers. For example, the Ameriwood Bathroom Over Toilet Space Saver is 25.25"x11.56"x68" with one open shelf, two doors and one drawer and costs $130-$198 with assembly required (using standard household tools). Home Depot sells a 25"x14"x72" Home Decorators Collection Heirloom 5-Door Bath Linen Cabinet[1] for $454.
  • Pre-made, wall-mount cabinets are available at home improvement, home decor, big-box discount stores and online retailers for $25-$300 or more, depending on size and materials. For example, Lowe's sells the wall-mounted Estate by RSI 24" White Over-the-Toilet Cabinet[2] for $88.
  • Semi-custom or custom bathroom cabinets from kitchen and bathroom showrooms or cabinet makers can cost $75-$250 a square foot, plus possibly another $50-$100 a linear foot for finish work. For a master bath suite with 10-20 square feet of cabinets the total cost could be $700-$7,000 depending on size, materials and configuration. Professional installation starts at $200-$1,000 and increases depending on the extent and complexity of the project, bringing the total cost to $900-$8,000 or more. IKEA provides a bathroom planner that lets the user choose the size and shape of the bathroom, then place various semi-custom cabinets and estimate the cost.

What should be included:
  • Bathroom cabinets should include all required installation hardware. Typically built-in bathroom cabinets, especially larger or longer ones, are constructed in sections and assembled inside the bathroom, then any countertops or sinks are added. Lowe's posts a how-to video[3] , and DIYNetwork provides written instructions[4] for installing a bathroom vanity cabinet, estimating that it will be an easy to moderate do-it-yourself project requiring minor plumbing work and taking up to half a day.
Additional costs:
  • Most prefabricated bathroom cabinets do not include a countertop. Bathroom countertops start at $20-$150 for a prefabricated single-sink top made of composite resin; prefabricated vanity tops in natural stone, ceramic or similar materials can cost $200-$1,000 or more; and having custom countertops installed can cost $400-$4,000 for a master bath with 9-15 square feet of countertops, depending on the materials used. For more details, see How Much Do Bathroom Countertops Cost.
Shopping for bathroom cabinetry:
  • To choose the bathroom cabinet configuration and materials, write down how the bathroom is used and what is needed. HGTV provides a guide for selecting bathroom cabinets[5] and ThisOldHouse.com lists tips for picking a vanity cabinet[6] .
  • Get several estimates. Ask each company about previous projects, licensing and insurance; check references and the Better Business Bureau[7] . A written contract should specify materials, labor, scheduling and payment plan. Make a minimum deposit and pay when the job is completed.
