Showcasing a Stunning Bathroom Renovation in Ottawa by Miracle Dream Homes

Stunning Bathroom Renovation in Ottawa - Miracle Dream Homes

We are very happy to report the completion of another 3-piece bathroom renovation in an Ottawa south home. 

Though it’s a very typical bathroom renovation project and 3-piece bathrooms are very common in modern construction, the project turned out to be quite a nice looking bathroom. It’s not a big bathroom, but it’s very cozy and clean and the client loved the way it turned out. We did too!  

The scope of work included conversion from a bathtub to a shower; the customer opted for an acrylic shower base with tiled walls. We have installed a very functional tiled niche, and the choice of black hardware complements dark tile and glass sliding shower doors quite well too. 

To contrast the darker tiles of the shower, the customer went with large and light floor tiles. 

A white vanity that comfortably rests on a large tile floor brings the timeless resemblance of elegant bathrooms from the past enmeshed into a modern feel of larger tiles and light wall colours. 

Not Just Aesthetics! Bathroom Renovation Involves Complex Construction Too! 

Besides the beauty of the finished work, a lot went into the installation of this Ottawa bathroom. Everything was waterproofed with Schluter systems membranes, the floor received its usual Ditra uncoupling membrane, and the walls were constructed with Schluter Kerdi membrane.  

Due to COVID-related supply shortages, it’s been hard to get a hold of Kerdi boards as all Ottawa tile supplies are out of stock. So, we had to revert to the old techniques of installing a Kerdi membrane over the substrate, something we did 10-12 years ago before Kerdi boards came out. Oh, good old times! 

After the demolition, we discovered that the existing subfloor was insufficiently supported and there was a lot of floor movement. So, prior to installing Ditra, we added support under the subfloor and reinforced it with a ¼” cement board. Yes, perhaps a total overkill. With Ditra and tiles over it, you can literally park a tank on top of that floor! No movements, no squeaks, just a beautifully clean and elegant bathroom that will serve our customer and their family and guests for many years to come. 

Special thanks to our crew members, Oleg and Dimitry for their dedication and hard work. You build for a customer as if you are building for yourself, and that’s the key to a job well done. Thank you Art and Darryl for the plumbing work, and as always, thank you to Anatoliy for his electrical work done on this and all of our other job sites.

    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.

    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.
