Estimated Read Time: 4 Minutes 


Are you an Ottawa-based Contractor in need of a trusted kitchen cabinet supplier?


We can help!


At Deslaurier Custom Cabinets, we have over 40 years of experience providing custom cabinets and design services to our customers. In that time, we’ve partnered with a number of local General Contractors and Kitchen Renovators in the Ottawa region. 


We know that every Contractor is different. Some may work strictly with new builds, while others specialize in renovations. We understand how beneficial it is for Contractors to partner with a quality and reliable cabinet manufacturer for their projects. 


Of course, working with Deslaurier is a viable relationship for all parties involved! 


This article will detail 6 benefits of partnering with Deslaurier Custom Cabinets as a Contractor.

1. Our Brand New Design Centre


In early 2022, we proudly completed our brand new in-house Design Centre to accompany our Ottawa showroom! 


Our Design Centre is a dedicated space where clients can work one-on-one with a Deslaurier Designer and experience our products firsthand. It contains samples of our different cabinet materials, door styles, and of course, paint and stain swatches. 


Not only that, but our Design Centre also showcases a number of samples from our local, reputable partners, like countertops from Urban Quarry and cabinet hardware selections from Berenson


2. A Dedicated Designer 


Speaking of designers, as a partnered contractor you will have a dedicated in-house Deslaurier design expert working on all of your projects. 


Your clients will be able to work 1-on-1 with a Deslaurier designer every step of the way, from their initial design meeting to their final sign-off appointment. 


Our designers will assist in building budgets, provide expert guidance from years of qualified design experience, as well as services such as fully dimensioned floor plans, elevations and renderings in order to help your client visualize and understand the scope of their project.

Whether you have your own kitchen designer, an interior decorator, or an architectural specialist, they can also work in conjunction with our free in-house kitchen designer.

When working with Deslaurier, your clients will have no shortage of options when it comes to designing their dream kitchen. 


The sheer amount of cabinet door styles in our catalogue is astounding. We offer 70+ unique styles, ranging from raised panel doors to shaker doors to slab doors.


There are over 80+ cabinet unique cabinet paints and stains in our standard catalogue alone! 


That’s not all! We also provide a sophisticated colour-match service to create distinctly unique cabinet paints for your custom kitchen. 


And of course, as a custom cabinet manufacturer, we are not limited to specific sizes or templates. Nor are our designers exclusively restricted to what is in our catalogue. The possibilities are truly endless when it comes to creating your clients’ dream kitchens.

4. Mutually Beneficial Relationship


Working with Deslaurier not only assists your current clients, but also helps you gain potential clients as well! 


At Deslaurier, we complete roughly 3,000 projects per year! That amount of volume has helped us attract new potential clients through online and in-person consultation requests every single day. 


A large portion of these customer leads are in the planning or concept stage of their projects. That’s a significant amount of potential clients that are without a General Contractor.


As a partnered Contractor, you will receive plenty of referrals to potential clients that are in need of Contractor services for their projects. 


This relationship benefits your business with more clients, while ensuring our leads have a reputable Contractor looking over their projects.


5. Installation or Supply


Whether you have your own installers on hand or require both delivery and installation, we’ve got you covered! 


Deslaurier employs a team of industry-leading professional cabinet installers, or, if you have your own installers, we can provide solely delivery services.


We also have in-depth articles detailing what you and your clients can prepare for, and expect, for a Deslaurier cabinet delivery:
