All the home improvement trends and industry numbers say remodeling is on the upswing and the worst of the housing crisis is behind us. Our bet is that a lot of money will be spent on bathroom replacement products like new cabinetry, wallcovering, accessories and towels that will give the room a facelift.

Old fixtures can be swapped with the existing ones that are more attractive and energy efficient. For instance our audience is very interested in replacing their bathtub walls with a new tile surround which can be an impressive upgrade. Almost as many are considering replacing an unused bathtub with a walk in shower, another option.

The most viewed job costs on DIYORNOT are often those involving remodeling a bathroom by making it more comfortable, convenient and attractive. Here’s a look at the top three bathroom job costs that site visitors refer to when planning to remodel a bathroom.

Converting a tub to a shower takes advantage of an extra bathroom in a house that’s no longer needed or used when the kids leave the nest. A nice wide standalone shower is especially popular if the bathroom is old and ripe for remodeling and a sleek new unit is wanted. Cost to Convert a Tub to a Shower DIY $975  Pro $2,782

Tiling a tub surround is a job we’ve done many times to transform the old walls surrounding a bathtub. Removing the old surface and installing new ceramic tiles to the walls makes them attractive and durable for years to come. Cost to Tile a Tub Surround DIY $225  Pro $802

In many older homes a bathroom had a window in the tub area and over the years the wood or metal frame has deteriorated. A new opening glass block window designed as a replacement is a solution that creates ventilation and privacy at the same time. Cost to Install a Glass Block Window DIY $245  Pro $556.
