About US

Years of experience and the widest range of Canadian manufacturers under one roof makes us the perfect team to work with.

After years of buying, renovating and selling homes we created The Cabinet Connection to provide the kind of product choice and service standards we wanted for ourselves.   

We started by combining Steve Corbell’s celebrated design expertise with Carlos Craston’s experience in the construction and renovation industry and created the straightforward goal of making well designed spaces that people love to live in – and that will sell well when you’re ready to move on.  Simple as that. 

Our singular focus is to help you realize the vision you have for your space, while providing you with expert advice and professional design, all backed by our many years of experience.  We stylishly synthesize function and form to conjure timeless kitchens & baths and we leverage the widest selection of cabinetmakers of any kitchen design company in Ottawa.  This last bit is really important: we don’t just design around one product line, instead we are able to choose the right Canadian manufacturing partner, or combination of partners that best fit your needs. This ensures we can fulfill your vision in a timely and cost-effective manner by providing you, our customer, with real choice. 

Combining beauty, function and livability of design – that’s The Cabinet Connection.
