Albert Street Home Renovation in St. Catharines

renovation overview

Full home renovation of a small detached bungalow.

The home is located just north of downtown St. Catharines, in the Haig neighborhood that offers a tranquil suburban retreat with convenient access to urban amenities. The Haig exudes a sense of community and charm. Residents enjoy proximity to parks, schools, and local shops, making it an ideal choice for families and professionals alike seeking a balanced lifestyle.

Upon purchase, the home was impeccably maintained by the previous owner for over 70 years. However, the main floor’s closed-off layout and dated rooms required modernization to enhance livability.

A full home renovation of a a 950sq ft bungalow completed with entry level finishes that requires no major structural or layout changes can cost around $150, 000 and up.

Before The Renovation

Scope of Work


  • The project commenced with the removal of the wall dividing the kitchen from the dining space, along with the archway between the living room and dining area, creating an open-concept layout.
  • Demolition and reconfiguration of the wall between the rear and middle bedroom and bathroom maximized space in the single bathroom and allowed for the addition of a double closet in the primary bedroom.
  • Relocation of the living room window improved sightlines from the interior.


  • Expanding the kitchen after wall removal, new hardwood strip flooring was installed to match the existing flooring.
  • Installation of new cabinetry, appliances, subway tile backsplash, and floating shelves enhanced functionality and aesthetics.
  • Wrapping the chimney in Thin-brick added a distinctive touch.


  • Complete overhaul featuring new hexagon tile flooring, subway tile on the shower wall, and around the base of the remaining walls.
  • Installation of new shower glass ensured a bright and open feel, complemented by a new vanity, bathroom faucets, and custom medicine cabinet.


  • Conversion of the former pink hair salon into a functional mudroom and entryway involved re-insulation, new drywall installation, and cabinetry for increased storage.
  • Addition of below-window bench seating and installation of hexagon floor tile, stacked washer, and dryer enhanced both style and practicality.


  • Full-house painting, installation of new light fixtures, and ceiling fans refreshed the interior.
  • Custom trim matching the original work from the home’s construction, along with sanding and refinishing of floors, maintained historic charm.
  • Replacement of front and back doors completed exterior enhancements.
