A shower remodel is one of the many changes a homeowner may complete when remodeling a bathroom.

Throughout the years, the parts that make up the shower become subject to wear and tear, and if left unrepaired, the damage can get worse.  Shower heads can rust and clog, or the tiles can become stained or cracked.  Even if your shower is in good working condition, you may just want to have it changed for cosmetic purposes.

How much is it?

Type of Shower InstallDescriptionAverage Price
Shower LinerThe shower liner will be considered the floor/ground you step on when entering your shower. In the past, these liners were made from an acrylic, PVC or polymer, but today, they can be made from natural stone, tile or even a waterproof wood material.

The cost of a shower liner install will depend on the materials you choose, your style and plumbing setup. Installing a new one will always be more expensive than simply replacing it.
$2,100 to $3,400
Tub/Shower ComboFor those who don't have space for a shower AND a tub, they will often resort to the commonly found tub/shower combo.

Like the liner, replacing an older tub/shower combination will always be cheaper than installing a new one.
$2,800 to $4,800
Tiled ShowerWhile tiles are cheaper, the labor is quite intensive when replacing or creating a new tiled shower. The cost will depend on the pattern of the shower, the tiles being purchased and complxity of the job. You can find tile as cheap as $0.80 per square foot to as much as $100 per square foot; it's really up to your personal tastes.$1,500 to $2,500, but it can be much more if you choose tiles more than $5 per square foot.
New Shower Door OnlySome opt to replace the shower door only to create a new look. Common shower doors can be made from clear glass, frosted glass or have anti-glare properties.

The cost of a new shower door will depend on the glass being used, the size of the door, the weight, how it opens and the number of side panels. The costs can be much higher if the door has to be customized.
$850 to $2,000+
Steam ShowerConsider to be one of the most luxurious options you can add to your bathroom, steam showers consider to be one of the priceist options as well. Due to the steam generator necessary to produce the steam, the shower will need a vapor to protect if from the water and steam being generated$3,000 to $6,000
Electric ShowerAn electric shower will deliver warm water instantly, using electric heat near the shower head. Since some homeowners prefer water instantly instead of waiting a few seconds, these copmonents can cost $100 to $600 for the materials, but labor can double the cost.$475 to $1,00
