Starting from Scratch: Another Completed Basement Bathroom Renovation

Starting from scratch: Another completed basement bathroom renovation

As you can see from the before and after photos, this basement bathroom installation started with pretty much a clean slate. The basement had a plumbing stub out, which is different from the plumbing rough-in. Usually, when a builder leaves plumbing in the basement it’s a stub out, which means the plumbing comes from under the concrete slab in roughly the right location. Most of the time, the pipes must be properly re-positioned to the exact spot where the shower base, toilet, and vanity would have their final location.

Before – Basement Bathroom Installation

A new rough-in for a 3 piece basement bathroom installation. 

To start this basement bathroom renovation, we called in our plumber Art from Summit Drain and Plumbing Services of Ottawa to relocate the placement of plumbing pipes, both drains, and supplies. We finished framing for a partition wall as well as bulkheads and framing for a sliding pocket door. New drywall was installed everywhere and finished to level 4 finish. 

Make it warm and cozy with a heated floor for this basement bathroom renovation! 

We ran a dedicated electrical line for the heated floor, with its own panel breaker. For this basement bathroom installation, we went with a stand-up shower with an acrylic shower base coupled with DensShield/Aquadefence waterproofing on the walls. The highlights of the bathroom renovation are the subway-style tiles for the walls and large-scale tiles for the flooring. After painting and trimming, check out the final product!

    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.

However, it’s important to know that whether you renovate your bathroom, basement or kitchen, getting professional help will not only save you time but potentially thousands of dollars.
