New bathroom cabinets or a vanity can modernize your bathroom, add storage space to a smaller secondary bath, or make a primary bath more luxurious. Pre-made vanities can cost as low as $100, while custom-built cabinetry can be as high as $42,000. Installation generally costs between $200 and $600 per unit.
How Much Do Custom Bathroom Cabinets Cost Per Square Foot?
The total cost of your new bathroom cabinets vary based on material, but here are some typical ranges for common installations:
- 20 sq. ft. (powder rooms or half baths): $1,500–$5,000
- 40 sq. ft. (three-quarter bathrooms): $3,000–$10,000
- 145 sq. ft. (full bathroom): $10,875–$29,000
- 160 sq. ft. (primary bathroom for two): $12,000–$32,000
- 210 sq. ft. (large primary bathroom for two): $15,750–$42,000
How Much Do Bathroom Cabinets Cost by Type?
When it comes to the type of cabinets you choose for your bathroom, there are lots of options to choose from. While the bathroom vanity typically consists of a mirror, sink, and cabinets, the choices you make about those items will influence your bathroom remodel cost.
If you plan to have a medicine cabinet behind your mirror, for example, that may cost more than a simple mirror. Generally, there are two types of cabinets: pre-made and custom.
Prefabricated Bathroom Cabinets
Prefabricated, or stock, bathroom cabinets are ones that are available at home improvement stores and come in a kit. They come in a large range of prices (typically anywhere from $40 to $500) and styles, and can sometimes be shipped directly to your home.
Keep in mind that stock cabinets still require installation, which means either doing it yourself or hiring a professional to install them.
Custom Bathroom Cabinets
The name is pretty self-explanatory: Custom cabinets are custom-built for your bathroom. They are usually built on-site by a cabinetmaker, and again can vary greatly in price depending on materials and labor.
Costs of custom bathroom cabinets vary by contractor, size, and materials, but you can expect to pay between $300 and $600 per cabinet, not including installation. For a large primary bathroom cabinet overhaul, you could be looking at upwards of $10,000, between materials and installation costs.
How Much Does Cabinet Installation Cost?
Even if you are buying prefabricated cabinets, installation is at least a two-person job, requires tools, and can take between six and eight hours. If you want some help and decide to hire a handyperson near you, you’re looking at anywhere from $300 to $500 to install a set of vanity cabinets. If you are having your cabinets custom-built, the cost varies greatly depending on the contractor and the difficulty of the job.
