Getting Started

Visiting Richcraft’s design centre for the first time is exciting, but the experience can be a little overwhelming. The following information outlines what to expect and how to prepare.

Getting Started

The Richcraft Design Studio is where your dream home comes to life. With the guidance of our talented team of designers, you will choose the colours and finishes that make your house uniquely your own. The studio is inspiring, fun and is the coming together of a highly curated group of quality kitchen, bath and flooring suppliers. Let’s get started…

Collecting Inspiration

We want to make your new home as unique as you are! If you’ve collected fabrics, swatches or pinned something online, we want you to show us your inspiration and bring it to your appointments.

Model Homes

We have over 30 model homes throughout Ottawa! We encourage you to visit them and discover the colours and details you love. Snap a few photos and show us your favourite features.

Welcome to Orientation

Our 30-minute orientation provides you a comprehensive overview of the vast choice of standards and upgrades available through Richcraft. We will outline important dates and schedules, and help prepare you for the first appointment with your designer. Orientations are available every Saturday, no appointment needed. Vist us every hour on the hour from 9am to 4pm.
