STEVE CORBELL

OWNER/SALES MANAGER

wisely decided to express his creativity by switching majors from zoology to kitchen design.  An acclaimed designer with deep roots in Ottawa’s kitchen and bath community, Steve launched The Cabinet Connection with business partner Carlos Craston in 2012.  His specialty is commanding a comprehensive grasp of project details, steering projects to “wow!” results, and he is partial to the retro-futuristic aesthetic of steampunk style.

CARLOS CRASTON

OWNER/OPERATIONS MANAGER

brings more than 20 years’ experience in the construction industry to kitchen and bath projects.  From start to finish, Carlos manages the translation of blueprints to stunning installations, coordinating the project schedule, scheduling workers on site, gathering permits and making sure everything is up to code. He enjoys the cool zen of his farm retreat, as well as minimalist West Coast Modern style.
