Deslaurier specializes in creating custom cabinetry in harmony with today’s varied lifestyles.

Our History

Deslaurier is a Canadian business, with its inception beginning in 1979 in the Deslaurier family garage. Fast forward to today, Deslaurier employs approximately 180 people and has earned a reputation as a market leader for cabinetry design. The company operates effectively in several business channels that include award-winning builders, renovators and a dealer network that represents the Deslaurier brand.

When a fire destroyed the plant in 2009, Deslaurier seized the opportunity to rebuild a state-of-the-art green manufacturing facility in Renfrew Ontario. In 2018 Jim Deslaurier, founder, and Denis Staples, president of Deslaurier announced an exciting new chapter for Deslaurier with the introduction of new ownership.

Their reputation for exceptional design and customer service has also won them numerous industry awards. These awards reflect the dedicated and growing group of loyal customers who appreciate the advantage of quality craftsmanship and a proven reputation for design experience attention to detail. 

They have also become an active member of many industry associations including the National Kitchen & Bath Association, the Canadian Kitchen Cabinet Association, the Better Business Bureau, Greater Ottawa Home Builders Association (GOHBA) and Renomark – Renovators Mark of Excellence.

If you can imagine it, Deslaurier can create it.

Our Company

The Deslaurier team is proud to offer exceptional quality products and design solutions tailored to each customer’s needs and dreams. We know cabinetry. We believe your home should suit your lifestyle and reflect your unique personality. That’s why we’ve built our business on a commitment to custom design, making sure ‘our’ rooms are always your rooms — the kitchen and bath that you’ve always dreamed about. Our vast selection of door styles, stains, and finishes ensures you get exactly what you want, no compromises.

Our Reputation

While the scale of our operations has changed since our launch as a modest family business three decades ago, our personalized approach to client service remains the same. We stand by your side from the beginning of the project through to completion — and beyond. Each project is backed by a comprehensive 20-year warranty. That commitment and talent has led to numerous industry awards for the Deslaurier team.

At Deslaurier we are proud of our roots; those of a family run custom cabinet manufacturer in the Heart of the Ottawa Valley. Over the years, Deslaurier has grown but the family values upon which our company was built continue to provide a solid foundation today and for our future.

A commitment to a collaborative process and high-quality craftsmanship have allowed us to be a partner in delivering on the beautiful visions of clients since 1979.

At Deslaurier our vision is that; Together, we craft quality and function for a beautiful life. Our team looks forward to the opportunity to collaborate with you.

When a fire destroyed our plant in 2009, Deslaurier seized the opportunity to rebuild a state-of-the-art green manufacturing facility in Renfrew Ontario.

We’re committed to using locally sourced woods and green manufacturing practices and materials. When possible, we carefully choose Environmentally Preferred Products (EPP) or materials with no added formaldehyde for our core construction materials. In our finishing operations, we use water-based stains, lacquers and topcoats, which are less harmful to the environment, our employees and you. Deslaurier’s base product is green by nature, but we also offer additional green options for customers who elect to be as environmentally friendly as possible.

We know that protecting the environment is vital and we’ve changed our manufacturing processes to make that happen — beautifully.


Deslaurier has won numerous awards for its custom kitchens and bathrooms, including some 13 honours over the past five years from the prestigious Greater Ottawa Home Builders Association.
