If you live in a condo in the Ottawa region, you probably know how difficult it is to get a contractor to come and work in a condo. Many contractors including plumbers, electricians and tile setters don’t want to work on condos since it’s a lot more difficult to work in, costs more and requires more time and effort. We were like that before, until we came across some wonderful people who live in condos across Ottawa, and we learned about their needs, desires and their stories.
For some, a bathroom renovation is an aesthetic upgrade to their home and an excellent investment. For others, it is a necessity due to age, health conditions or life transition.
We could no longer say no to condo dwellers, and now we offer condo bathroom renovation as one of our many services.
Cost of Condo Bathroom Renovations
Before we discuss the average cost of a bathroom renovation in a condo in Ottawa and surrounding areas, we want to address that we understand that each condo bathroom is slightly different and each project may have some variations that will influence the final cost.
Over the course of our careers in the last 15-plus years at iBathrooms, we have seen and renovated many bathrooms. This experience gives us a good foundation to understand the condo bathrooms market and to price the condo bathroom renovations properly. Our prices are not too cheap where it won’t be properly done, and not too expensive so that the renovation is unattainable for the average person.
When pricing a condo bathroom renovation, we keep in mind that many people who are looking for this kind of renovation are older couples and individuals who have moved into condos for their convenience to older people. We keep this in mind and do our best to make sure that our retired clients or those on a fixed income can still afford to renovate their bathroom especially when this renovation is a requirement due to health and mobility issues. That being said, condo bathroom renovations are always a little more expensive than your average home bathroom renovation
On average, renovating a condo bathroom in Ottawa will cost approximately $25,000 for labour, trades and rough materials plus your finishings, and may increase depending on the type of bathroom and the type of work required.
We have made special arrangements with all of our trades and suppliers and try to help those in need of a renovation contact us to discuss your particular needs and wants.
Keep in mind that many bathrooms can be partially renovated to accommodate specific needs. Keep reading below.

Tub to Shower Conversion
As we age and our bathroom preferences and needs change, many people find themselves needing showers much more than bathtubs. We constantly receive phone calls and emails from clients who have moved into a condo, and for many reasons, they require a shower to replace their bathtub. This is where a tub-to-shower conversion comes in. Most condo bathtubs can be converted into a walk-in shower with a low threshold or no threshold at all. Roughly 30% of our bathroom renovation work is tub-to-shower conversions.
When it comes to a condo tub-to-shower conversion, keep in mind that it must be done professionally so there are no possible leaks or mistakes made. Remember, it’s not just your bathroom that’s at stake, but many other bathrooms living in the condo below you. Often, the only way to convert a tub to a shower in a condo requires an installation of a custom tile shower. We are extra careful to ensure that the shower is not only leak-proof and looks beautiful, but is also safe to use with non-slip tile on the floor and safety features on the shower threshold like grab bars, easy access and benches as our customers may require.
