How much does it cost to renovate an Ottawa Kitchen?

The cost of your Ottawa kitchen renovation project will depend on your priorities and tastes. Before starting a kitchen renovation, it’s important to establish a comprehensive budget. Consider what needs remodeling, what style of kitchen you want, and what materials you’d like to see in your kitchen. If you don’t have a clear plan, your project can easily go over budget.

What percent of your home value should you spend on a kitchen renovation?

When you’re renovating your kitchen, a good rule of thumb is to budget 5% to 15% of your overall home value for the remodel. This helps you set reasonable goals and expectations for the renovation.

What is the most expensive part of a kitchen renovation?

Kitchen cabinets are the most expensive part of your kitchen renovation. Cabinets are made with high quality, durable materials, and building and installing cabinets is labor-intensive.

Other high-ticket items include new appliances and kitchen countertops.

Why are kitchen renovations Ottawa so expensive?

Were you quoted a high price for your kitchen renovation? There are lots of elements to consider when remodeling the kitchen, and you’ll need to budget for:

  • The new kitchen design
  • Taking out old cabinets, counters, or appliances
  • Reworking plumbing and electrical to get your kitchen up to code
  • Replacing flooring
  • Installing cabinets
  • Redecorating the kitchen

All these elements of a renovation can add up. Before you start your kitchen renovation, make sure you’ve budgeted for all the expenses.

Is renovating a kitchen worth it?

Renovating a kitchen has a lot of benefits. A kitchen renovation can transform your home, give you a beautiful space to spend time with family and friends, and even help you live a healthier life. A renovation can also add value to your home.

If you’re remodeling your home for resale, make sure you set a budget you’ll recoup when selling the home. If you spend more on the renovation than the resale value, then renovating your kitchen isn’t worth it.

What renovations add value to a home?

A kitchen remodel is a great way to add value to your home. Other renovations to increase your home value include:

  • A bathroom renovation
  • Finishing the basement
  • Replacing old windows
  • Updating the back deck or redoing the fence
How often should I redo the kitchen?

Your kitchen is the most-used room in the house. You’re in your kitchen 2 or 3 times a day, every day of the year. On average, kitchens need to be renovated every 10 to 15 years. You can redo you kitchen to repair damaged cabinets, make it more functional for your family, or even just update the style of your kitchen.

These are some signs that it’s time to redo your kitchen:

  • The cabinets or countertops are damaged
  • The flooring is cracked, scuffed, or damaged
  • The kitchen feels dingy, with stains and discoloration on the counters or cabinets
  • You need new appliances
  • Your kitchen feels outdated
  • The kitchen isn’t functional for your family, and the layout is impractical
Do I need a permit?

Depending on your renovation project, you might need a permit to redo the kitchen. During the planning stage, Castillo Custom will let know if your project needs a permit, and we’ll help you get the right permit for your project.

What comes first: Flooring or Cabinets?

In most kitchen renovations, the cabinets get installed before the flooring. The cabinets are installed on the subfloor, and you’ll save on the cost of your finish flooring. Once the cabinets are in, the flooring will be cut to size, and fit against the cabinets. Finally, a baseboard or shoe molding covers the tiny gap between the flooring and the cabinet.

What is the kitchen work triangle?

As you design your new kitchen with Meadow Creek Renovations, think about the kitchen “work triangle”. We recommend placing the main prep area, the sink, and the fridge in a triangle rather than a straight line. This provides a good workflow and creates space for several people in the kitchen.

Lowe’s Kitchen Renovation Ideas Helping Homeowners Conquer Their Kitchen Projects


An Ottawa kitchen renovation is a big investment, so you want to do it right the first time. There are a few common mistakes homeowners can make, but our team at Meadow Creek Renovations will help you avoid these renovation mistakes.

Failing to think about workflow: During the design process, you need to think about functionality as well as appearance. The best kitchen layouts use the work triangle to create the most practical workflow.

Choosing appliances last: Your appliances are a central part of your design. It’s important to know the size of your new appliances before designing your cabinets or the layout of your kitchen. Choosing appliances last can lead to an expensive mistake if your appliances don’t fit in your new kitchen.

Being indecisive: Homeowners can have a hard time finalizing a plan. If you still have doubts about the design, don’t approve the project. Being indecisive at the beginning of the job can cost you time and money during the renovation.

Overdesigning: Do you have a lot of ideas? Overdesigning is a common mistake that can make your kitchen renovation a disaster. When you try to include too many ideas, your kitchen isn’t a functional or comfortable space, and you may not be happy with your remodel.

Picking the wrong size: When it comes to finishing touches like lighting or seating, make sure you pick the right size. Light fixtures that are too big or too small can be an eyesore, and your seating needs to be the right height for your kitchen island.

Skimping on storage: A functional kitchen needs lots of storage. Don’t underestimate the amount of cupboard space you’ll need, and get creative with lazy Susan’s and drawer dividers to make the most of your storage space.

Forgetting about the details: You put a lot of thought into your cabinets, countertops, and flooring, but don’t forget about the details. You’ll need to make design decisions about the lighting, the backsplash, the faucets, the hardware, and the paint color to complete your kitchen remodel.
