Our Design Products

Kitchen & Bathroom Cabinets

Whatever your personal style (or budget) may be, Laurysen has the cabinetry that is right for your home. Our kitchen and bathroom cabinets come in three different versions: standard (prefab), semi-custom, or custom, which will integrate with your new room design, layout, and special requirements.

Create the look you desire with the perfect cabinet doors. We have an almost endless array of door designs, materials, colours, and finishes to suit your needs.

Last but not least, add function and safety with convenient features such as pop-up or rollout cabinet shelves and drawers, soft-close hinges, and childproof safety locks.

Kitchen & Bathroom Countertops

Countertops are the crowning touch to your kitchen or bathroom renovation. We offer a wide selection of stylish yet practical countertop materials:

Laminate. Generally considered the most affordable countertop option, plastic laminate coats particleboard, forming a finish that is both decorative and protective.

Quartz. Quartz (actually a mix of crushed quartz, resins, and pigments) is the “it” material for upscale countertops. We carry both Cambria and Silestone.

Natural Stone. Stone countertops are elegant classics. Granite is as durable as it is beautiful. While marble is higher maintenance, its timeless good looks are outstanding.

Corian. Corian is a blend of resin and minerals formed into solid surface countertops. These are truly seamless, integrating a kitchen or bathroom sink directly into their structure.

Custom Closets

If you’re like most homeowners, you probably feel you have too much stuff and not enough space. You dream of getting your house — especially your closets — organized and decluttered someday.

Why not stop dreaming and start doing? Laurysen makes the most of your closet space.

Our “Klozets” are the ideal tool to help you whip your closets into shape. No matter how large or small your closet space may be, one of our talented interior designers will show you how to use incredibly efficient racks, rods, drawers, and fittings to maximize your storage possibilities.

About Laurysen in Hintonburg

Laurysen is a longstanding Ottawa family business. John Laurysen Custom Cabinets first opened in a 1200-square-foot garage back in 1970.

Over 50 years, Laurysen has changed and grown. As our reputation for outstanding cabinetry flourished, the company expanded both premises and purpose to work with bathrooms, laundries, mudrooms, closets, and built-ins, as well as kitchens. In 1987, a fire demolished our factory. We successfully reopened, and now we’re stronger than ever.

Today, the younger Laurysen generation, Bill and Caroline, together with Caroline’s husband, Giuseppe Castrucci, are in charge. We’ve created a Laurysen dealership network across 27 marketplaces in Ontario and abroad, and our manufacturing facilities total 78,000 square feet. We’ve also joined the green movement, adopting eco-friendly water-based UV finishes and our zero-added-formaldehyde NU GREEN ZERO melamine.

In recognition of our achievements, Laurysen has earned many honours from the National Kitchen and Bath Association, numerous “Best of Houzz” awards, and the Ottawa Consumer’s Choice “Best Kitchen Manufacturer” (20+ years running), to name just a few.

We proudly give back to the community through initiatives such as:

  • Donating professional services to the CHEO Dream Home and Maycourt Hospice
  • Supporting community-based sports
  • FCA Ferrari Festival, with proceeds to the Villa Marconi Long Term Health Centre
  • Contributing to the Ottawa Food Bank and the Heart & Stroke Foundation
  • Fundraising dinners for stem cell research

Through it all, we gratefully acknowledge John and Adri Laurysen’s legacy: our culture of quality and the desire to enhance our customers’ environments at an affordable price.
