The MDH Team of Home Renovation and Remodeling Specialists in Ottawa

When we started this small renovation business many years ago, we did it for all the same reasons others become entrepreneurs – to make a living, just like most contracting companies do. In time, it grew to be much bigger than that; it became about people, about building relationships and providing families and individuals in the Ottawa region with something of value. It became a desire to give just a little more than what we receive. I guess we found some sort of higher satisfaction knowing that we did something right. As a psychologist would say “on a Maslow’s pyramid of needs, we found our Self-Actualization.”

One knows the work one does is no longer work is when one seeks the satisfaction of it more than financial reward. When a cold phone call turns into a warm welcome to their home. When a stranger yesterday is a phone contact today and a phone call with them starts not about what we can do for them, but about their family; then you know it’s more than a job. You know they are more than a customer.

Besides pride in working with great customers, we take our business very seriously. We are very careful when hiring new personnel and rarely need to do so as most of our people have been with us for a long time. We feel it is a huge responsibility to hire a worker and provide for his/her livelihood. So, the wellbeing of our staff is of extreme importance to us. With that in mind, we try to create an atmosphere where our staff will enjoy going to work each day.

    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.

    At Miracle Dream Homes (MDH), we have been renovating, remodeling, and redesigning bathrooms and kitchens, and finishing basements in the Ottawa area since 2004.

Our customers across the Ottawa area count on our skilled crews and the experience of our team to complete their home renovation projects on time and on budget.

    It takes about 10,000 hours of practice to master a skill. Tradespersons such as plumbers and electricians, when going through an apprenticeship program, take at least 5 years or 8,280 hours before they are fully ready to start working on their own. DIY enthusiasts often feel excited about projects such as bathroom renovations, kitchen remodels and basement renovations. Of course, it is exciting to think of a home makeover! 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.
