Conceptualizing a new kitchen can be a lot of fun. You may find yourself spending hours perusing through endless design ideas and imagining what your new kitchen space will look like.

Minor Kitchen Reno

If you’re planning to make upgrades to your kitchen that may include redoing your floors, cabinets and a few other key areas, you can expect your kitchen renovation cost to hover around $21,000. To make the most out of your budget, consider going for a low-cost flooring option like vinyl that offers both easy installation and durability.

We also recommend going with cabinets that provide a high-end look at an affordable cost, and opt to reface your cabinets instead of replacing them with new kitchen cabinets.

Mid-range Kitchen Reno

A mid-range kitchen renovation costs about $31,000. There are some exciting layout changes you can make to your current kitchen within this budget. These include installing new cabinets and countertops and redoing the backsplash and flooring. You can be a little more extravagant in your material choices and incorporate a few high-end items as well. Some popular countertop choices within this range include quartz, which resembles expensive natural stone.

One of the creative things you can do is mix and match different types of cabinetry in a similar way that people often have various styles of furniture in their living rooms to switch up the look. Think about doing this with your cabinets. A key to staying on budget is to avoid replacing appliances if you do not need to.

    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 experience ranges from updating older homes to restyling newer ones, renovating for aging-in-place requirements, expanding smaller spaces for greater convenience and comfort, personalizing home designs and layouts, and much more. 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.

    Save On Your Renovation

    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.
