The Benefits of Adding a Bathroom in your Ottawa Home

One of the most impactful type of bathroom renovation one can consider is the addition of a bathroom. This service is not merely a luxury; it’s a strategic investment with numerous benefits.

Enhanced Home Value

One of the primary reasons to consider a bathroom addition in Ottawa is the potential increase in property value. In the real estate market, the number of bathrooms can significantly influence a home’s desirability and resale price. A new bathroom can make a property stand out in the competitive Ottawa market, often resulting in a higher selling price and a quicker sale when the time comes.

Improved Functionality and Comfort

For growing families or homes that frequently host guests, an extra bathroom can alleviate the daily stress of a shared space. Morning routines and evening wind-downs become more manageable, allowing multiple family members to get ready simultaneously without the wait. The convenience of an additional bathroom means less disruption to daily life and a more harmonious living environment.

Customization to Fit Your Lifestyle

Building a new bathroom from scratch gives homeowners in Ottawa the freedom to tailor the space to their specific needs. Whether it’s a spa-like retreat with a soaker tub and heated floors, a practical three-piece setup for guests, or an en-suite for added privacy, the possibilities are endless. This customization allows for personal touches that reflect the homeowner’s taste and lifestyle.

Safety and Comfort

For families with elderly members or those with disabilities, safety in the bathroom is paramount. Converting a tub to a shower can improve safety by reducing the risk of slips and falls. The addition of grab bars, non-slip flooring, and bench seating can enhance the comfort and safety of the shower, providing peace of mind for all users.

Adaptability for Accessibility

An additional bathroom can also be designed with accessibility in mind, accommodating aging residents or those with disabilities. Features like walk-in showers, raised toilets, and grab bars can make a significant difference in the safety and independence of individuals with mobility challenges. This foresight ensures the home can adapt to the evolving needs of its occupants over time.

Energy Efficiency and Sustainability

With the addition of a new bathroom, Ottawa homeowners have the chance to incorporate energy-efficient fixtures and sustainable materials. Low-flow toilets, LED lighting, and water-saving showerheads can reduce the environmental footprint and utility costs. In a city that values sustainability, these features can be particularly appealing.

Meeting the Demands of Modern Living

The contemporary lifestyle often demands more from our living spaces. A bathroom addition can meet this demand by providing a dedicated laundry room, mudroom, or powder room that modern families find indispensable. This adaptability makes the home more functional and suited to the fast-paced lives of Ottawa’s residents.

Our team is friendly and professional, and we’d be more than happy to assist you with your bathroom renovation needs.

    Contact Us

    This step should only take you 5-10 minutes. Fill out your information and choose the details of your project in our contact us form. Add a few pictures of your project if you have them, as this will greatly help us to provide the most accurate information to you.

    At this point, you will receive a thank you email from MDH – this takes about 5 minutes to review. It will contain the information you provided us with, as well as links to videos we want you to review before we proceed to the next steps.

    Get Your Insta Quote

    Depending on the type of the project and its scope, in the next step you will receive a sample quote that would give you a fairly accurate idea of the cost and details of your project. Please review that and confirm with us if you would like to proceed to the next step.

    Phone/Video Meeting

    At this stage we will spend about an hour on the phone or video chat with you, we will answer all your questions regarding sample estimates, go over specific details of your project, and confirm all the costs and pricing with you. This will also allow you to meet us in the comfort of your home and see if we are a good match to work together.

    Home Visit

    This takes about 1-2 hours to complete. Further to the initial phone call/video call and after you have reviewed our paperwork, a home visit can be set up if you choose to proceed with the job. During this meeting, we will measure your bathroom, kitchen, or basement, review and sign off on the estimate, provide you with easy-to-follow instructions on product selection, and a list of products that you will need to choose for your specific project. We will give you all the right sizes you need and the required quantities. You will have a complete shopping list and a list of the preferred suppliers where you can choose your finished products and receive preferred special pricing on those products. You can be as involved in the process of selecting the finished products or as little as you choose. If you prefer to be less involved, we can pre-select products for you based on your requirement and you will simply confirm that selection.

    Product Selection

    We will supply all “rough materials” as part of our labor estimation. You do not need to bother yourself with buying every little screw and fastener. All plumbing, electrical, HVAC, tiling, framing, painting, carpentry, all rough materials will be supplied by us. We only use premium products and you can trust that we will not skimp on quality.

    Finish materials: These are the products where we will need a little bit of your help for final selection. Since we all have different tastes and we all like different styles, we will leave the choice of finishing products up to you. After signing the estimate/project contract we will provide you with the detailed quantity and types of finished products you will need.

    What are the finished products?

    Your floor tiles, your wall tiles, your tub and shower bases, vanities, toilet, and mixing valves. Essentially, everything that you see and need to choose for your bathroom renovations in Ottawa. We will give you a list of preferred local suppliers where you can go to make your selections. We are always happy to pass on our contractor’s discount to you.

    More details will be provided during phone call and/or meeting.


    Once all your finished materials are in stock, we will call to confirm your installation date. We usually book that date after you’ve signed up and started selecting your finished materials. It is usually tentatively booked, and we confirm that firm date a few days or a week prior to your installation. A lot depends on materials availability. If what you’ve selected is in stock, your installation can take place sooner. However, if some or all your selected products are on special order, we will need to wait for them to arrive before we can start installation.

    Here are some additional common questions about bathroom renovations that we get from our customers:

    FAQ Left

  • Can I use my own plumber/electrician?
    The short answer is no.We have a licensed, certified, and skilled plumber and an electrician who not only provide us with amazing pricing but are also a joy to work with. Their work is impeccable! The reason we prefer to work with our own crew is not to be difficult or restrictive, but rather, to ensure that we can stand behind our work with a warranty. We provide you with a 3-year warranty on our labor. For us to do that, we need to take control and ownership of the job site by entrusting our crew members who share our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction. Our goal is to deliver an exceptional bathroom renovation project experience from concept to completion, and for that, we need to be the “chef in the kitchen”.
  • Can I do my demolition?
    Well, sure, maybe, but why? It is very common for customers to think that a DIY demolition will reduce the cost significantly. It does not. Depending on the size and type of bathroom being renovated, a demolition can cost us between $200 to $500. It’s not an area where you can make significant savings through a DIY effort. You can certainly get your hands dirty if that’s what you’d like. However, if you are thinking about saving money, just tell us. We will try to work in some sort of a discount into your overall bathroom renovation project costs but still provide you with a full warranty and follow our standard process.
  • Can I finance my project?
    Yes, we are affiliated with FinaceIt and we can provide the convenient option of low monthly or bi-weekly payments that are fully open and can be repaid at any time. Most of the customers who choose to finance their bathroom renovation project will either opt for low bi-weekly payments with long loan amortization but will not carry the loan to its full maturity. Instead, they use the loan as a bridge and when their mortgage is ready for renewal, they repay the loan converting it to a low-interest rate. Another option is payment deferrals for 3 to 9 months with zero interest. We post all new updates and promotions on our social media platforms, so feel free to follow us there for updates.
  • How soon can you start?

    Most often, this depends on you. If all the materials you have selected are in stock and ready to go, we usually need 4-8 weeks before we can start. We do have a short notice waiting list too. Sometimes when a product is delayed and we have an opening, we can begin another project while we wait. Many of our customers have taken advantage of that and renovated their bathroom much sooner than expected.

  • FAQ Right

  • Do you provide a warranty?

    Yes, we are proud of the work we do and stand behind our quality with a 3-year warranty on labour.

  • What is the payment schedule?

    1) With the signed accepted estimate, the contract payment structure for bathrooms is as follows:

    $500 deposit at the time of accepting the quote and 3 equal instalments for the balance when the work has started, in the middle, and at the completion.

    2)  For kitchen renovations, the initial $500 planning deposit is needed to develop the plans and the design for the exact kitchen quote (if a design and plans are needed). Paid after the home visit for initial consultation and measurements.

    Once the quote is accepted, the order of cabinets require 50% deposit for materials, then 2 equal payments upon delivery and upon installation.

    The rest of the labour costs, which is an estimate related to a general kitchen renovation work (other than cabinets order): like electrical, plumbing, drywall, tile etc., will have the initial planning deposit applied (credited) and the balance amount split into 3 equal payments paid when the work has started, in the middle, and at the completion

    3)  For basement finishing contracts, depending on the scope of the project, but normally the initial $500 planning deposit is needed to develop the plans and the design for the exact scope of work in the basement. Paid after the home visit for initial consultation and measurements.

    Once the quote is accepted, the initial planning deposit is applied (credited) and the balance amount split into 3 equal payments paid when the work has started, in the middle, and at the completion.
  • Where are you located, and do you work in my area?

    Our home-based offices are in Stittsville, Kanata, and Barrhaven and Ottawa. We prefer not to rent or own physical office space as this will add to the cost of running a business and in turn drive the overall cost of bathroom renovations higher for our clients. Our contractors live across Ottawa, some in Stittsville, Nepean, Barrhaven, Kanata, and on the east end of Ottawa in Orleans.

    We service the entire Ottawa region. We have done bathroom, basement and kitchen renovation jobs in Carleton Place and Ashton, Arnprior, Stittsville, Kanata, Ottawa itself, and on the east end in Orleans, Rockland, and Cumberland.

  • How long will a bathroom renovation project take?

    It’s difficult to provide accurate timelines, but here are some estimates to give you an idea:

    2-piece powder room with tile will take under one week.

    3-piece bathroom with tile is likely to be completed in under two weeks.

    4-piece bathroom with tile shower and tub is usually done in under three weeks.

    These are general guidelines—please discuss your project with us for specifics that will apply to you.
