There is a LOT of remodeling information online but after all that has happened in the past two years, most of it is out of date.
But don’t worry. In this article, we'll share current and up to date information so you can make a great decision!
Read on for the first three things you MUST KNOW before you begin!
2021 is in the rear view mirror and it seems to have been just a blink.
There are a few portions of the timeline that you may not be aware of so we will lay them out here. Getting a remodel started "asap" is possible but understanding what "asap" means is important so there are clear expectations. So let's get into it!
Bathroom Renovation 2022 Timeline - Preparation
Let's assume you've done your due diligence starting with a Google search for "bathroom remodel near me". Then, let's assume that you've interviewed and chosen yours from the list of bathroom remodeling contractors.
Now, you'll want to sit down and pick their brain (or our brain!) about their process if you don't already understand it. Understanding their process up front will make the remodel process clear and fun!
Next, you'll want to sit down with them and confirm the desired scope of work and budget target. Finally, with that complete you're ready to jump into the work!
Finally, we see people get bit in the b**t by this a lot, so we will highlight it. Skipping the budget/boundary conversation and seeking estimates quickly but **without clarity** is not in your best interest as the homeowner.
Bathroom Renovation 2022 Timeline - Design
Now that you have your scope of work and budget set up, your project has boundaries that eliminate scope creep and distraction, so you can focus on designing your perfect bathroom!
Next, as your interior design concierge, we will book a time to help you explore tile, plumbing and flooring options.
At this appointment, you will have interior design input from us but you'll get to feel out your own taste and what you want for brightness, contrast, cool or warm colors, etc. At the end of this appointment, you'll have samples of each material to take home so you can set them up in natural light.
Once materials are confirmed and ordered, the ETA's are as follows (as of quarter 1, 2022).
- Flooring - usually less than 2 weeks
- Tile - usually less than 3 weeks
- Plumbing & lighting - wild card but we're seeing most mid-range brands available in 4 to 8 weeks.
Once all the materials have arrived, we can schedule your bathroom remodel target starting date. Remember flexibility is the name of the game here!
For guest bathrooms and powder rooms, the remodel execution timeline is between three to six weeks.
Finally, how long does a master bathroom remodel take? Master bathroom remodels take five to ten weeks. Read on to understand how long it takes to prepare!
Bathroom Remodel Materials in 2022 - ETA's are long
As a contractor, we can't control the supply & demand, the raw materials, manufacturing limitations, or the container ships.
However, there is one thing you can personally do. Be decisive. When you find the tile, flooring, or fixtures you like, we will help you confirm that everything works so you can purchase everything right away.
How long does it take for bathroom remodel materials to arrive? After orders are placed, ETA's are received within one week and most materials arrive in 2 to 8 or even 10 weeks.
A product may come from another country or state and be marked as "available" or "delivered" when it's gotten to the regional or national distribution center nearest you BUT it could still be several hours and a truck driver away.
Furthermore, we hear stories of companies stopping jobs "for no reason" but this can be why. If materials are "delivered" and the product has not arrived to the home owner, the team could execute a false start by accident.
Now, what's the bottom line? We triple check and don't consider a material "delivered" until it's actually in your hand. We have a team who is aware of the details and process for each supplier and their regional warehousing.

Bathroom Remodel Costs of Your 2022 Project
Most of our families start their search looking for a legitimate contractor who is licensed, bonded, carries appropriate insurance and runs a safe and professional business.
We also know that most couples want to find a local contractor, family owned remodeling company, and "medium" sized firm. Too big and costs can balloon; too small and the schedule may suffer. These couples have been investing $40,000 to $105,000+ in their bathroom remodels.
- Guest bathroom remodels cost $30,000 to $45,000+ for rough materials and labor. Home owners invest $5,000 to $10,000 in their finish materials (plumbing, lighting, tile and flooring).
- Master bathroom remodels cost $45,000 to $105,000+ for rough materials and labor. Homeowners invest $9,000 to $15,000 in their finish materials.
We're confidant that over 90% of first class A-Z remodels fall within these ballparks, so you can call with any questions you have!
Bonus Tip to Value Engineer Your Bathroom Project!
The most popular value-engineering choice made in bathrooms, is to go with LVP flooring instead of tile flooring because the labor and materials are both less in the case of LVP and they don't loose the classy, beautiful and durable traits they were hoping to achieve by using tile.
Check out Rayo Wholesale's products or this LVP maintenance page and see how easy the stuff is to care for!
