A name you can take seriously


Seriös is owned and operated by OakWood. Simply put, designing and building is in our blood.

Since 1956, we have been providing high-quality design and build renovation services to homeowners in the National Capital Region.

We see every renovation as an opportunity to help our customers turn dreams into reality. There are no standard ‘design templates’ – only processes that are based on over half-a-century of providing award-winning, renovation services tailored to our customer’s needs!

Renovating is one thing. But why create a separate business dedicated to cabinetry? Why Seriös


Cabinets are a focal point for any room

Cabinetry is a big part of most if not all of the renovation solutions that we provide. Whether a kitchen, bathroom, dining room, home office, entertainment room – all usually need some type of cabinetry. While we have worked with many cabinetry manufacturers over the years (and many of them are very good indeed), our standards are not only excruciatingly high we also want to offer maximum flexibility.

Affordable customization and personalization

We want to provide you with unlimited options to get a unique, highly personalized, made-to-measure cabinetry solution – without paying an arm-and-a-leg. If your space is exactly 61” wide, we want to be able to give you a 61” wide cabinetry solution with any style, finish, or look – affordably.

A Seriös Advantage

Seriös is the answer if you live in the Ottawa region and want an alternative to standard, mass-produced cabinetry options that are typically available from big box stores and even higher-end cabinetry vendors:

  • Get exactly what you want – everything is customized to your exact specifications, nothing is pre-made  or preassembled or “in stock” sitting on a shelf
  • Specialists – we are not a “jack-of-all-trades”, we are experts who design and build high-quality cabinets from scratch
  • Unlimited options – you are free to choose any size, configuration, style, wood, colour, hardware or decorative accents
  • Any room in the house – whether it is a kitchen, bathroom, dining room, mud room, basement or any other room, we can provide 100s of examples to inspire you
  • Manufactured to a higher standard – furniture-grade cabinetry that is LEED compliant for the health of homeowners and the environment

Timely delivery – all cabinets are proudly manufactured right here in Canada
