    Kitchens are complex renovation projects and often require a significant investment. Needless to say, a successful custom kitchen renovation adds tremendous value to your Ottawa home. Based on our experience installing kitchens in Ottawa, your preparation work, which would include walls, flooring, electrical, and some plumbing for an average size kitchen start from about $10,000. Your kitchen cabinets for an average size kitchen usually would start from about the same amount of $10,000. There are exceptions to this. We have installed many kitchens in basement apartments that cost less. The best thing is to reach out to us to discuss your project in detail. Below you will see some before and after pictures of kitchen renovations. We have also provided short descriptions of what was done and rough costs of the projects.

    To ensure the ease of the process for you and us, we remove the stress of all the supporting materials selection and simply leave it up to you to choose your finish materials. Even with that, help is available if you need to choose the right style of the cabinets or the functionality that will meet your needs. We can help you design your kitchen cabinets, or you can use one of many kitchen companies that will design and sell the kitchen cabinets to you. Perhaps you have already designed and purchased the cabinets and installation of them, such as the Ikea kitchen cabinet, and simply need to prepare the space for your new kitchen. We offer complete and partial kitchen renovation services, where you can have us handle the entire project, or we can do a partial preparation for your kitchen and a kitchen manufacturer will come in to install kitchen cabinets.
