Our story


Cuisines Steam

A love story is behind the founding of Cuisines Steam. A couple that had a great desire to work together decided to unite in 2002 to live from their passions. Both foodies and design enthusiasts, Brigitte Boulanger and Jean Côté joined forces to rethink the heart of the home - the kitchen.

A name derived from Quebec jargon seemed appropriate. The "steam" or condensation that formed in the windows when cooking, inspired the name of the company. A name that is a nod to Brigitte's mother who passed on her passion for the culinary arts. 

After presenting their products at the SIDIM (International Design Exhibition of Montreal)  Cuisines Steam opened its first showroom in 2002, on Bellechasse St. in Montreal.  Upon receiving the Certificate of Excellence in the kitchen cabinets category, business was booming. Projects were multiplying for a growing customer base and thus Cuisines Steam became a pillar in the field of contemporary kitchen design. 

In 2006, the company moved its showroom to a storefront in Little Italy in Montreal.  The space allowed for the showcasing of the latest innovations in the field. With time, the company expanded with the addition of designers, wood-workers and a specialized installation team.

With ideas and aspirations abounding, a need for space was felt in order to meet the creative needs of the business, but also to accommodate the growing team.

In 2014, the Montreal based design company drops anchor on St-Laurent Blvd. The new premises offer substantial improvements over the latest nest in Little Italy.  The space allows for the showcasing of their innovative ideas and remarkable quality.

Cuisines Steam is thus backed by a strong sense of tradition and craftsmanship. Designers, wood-workers and installers unite, and through their respective specialities and talents offer a product that represents the creativity and effervescence of Montreal.

There is no such thing as a small project when rethinking the heart of the home.

This is our latest showroom addition.The pairing of two types of wood creates a chic and sophisticated effect. The backsplash composed of horizontal wood planks doubles as a structural support for the metal shelves. The island, built entirely in walnut, takes an important place in the heart of the kitchen. To lighten the space it was designed as a freestanding piece of furniture.

Materials: Stained white oak, black walnut in sold wood and veneer, counter and backsplash in honed Marine Black Marble, counter in raw stainless steel.

Located in Montreal's Rosemont neighborhood, this renovation is the perfect marriage between the typical charm of historic Montreal homes and a very refined vision of the space. Minimalist and bathed in natural light, the kitchen is in perfect harmony with the carefully curated outdoor details.

Materials: White Acrylic, black walnut in solid wood and veneer, counters in Silestone Iconic White quartz, backsplash in Santa Margherita Concrete Grey quartz.

Grands Prix du Design, Kitchen award, Dupont Blouin Architectes.


This house from the fifties has been completely renovated by the Dupont Blouin architectural firm in order to modernize the interior and highlight the integral beauty of the original architecture. The main objective was to fully integrate the kitchen in the space so that it blends completely with the construction materials. The predominance of white oak punctuated by black stained beams and dark metal create a space that is truly harmonious and respectful, yet bold and powerful.

Materials: white oak veneer in a plank effect, hot-rolled steel, granite counter.



Brixton project


Harmonious and airy, the Brixton kitchen is truly an Integral part of the home. The living space, which is surrounded in natural light, is highly functional with its two islands and its dinette area, making it a perfect space for this young and dynamic family.

Materials: pale gray and black polyurethane lacquer with 20% gloss, white oak veneer and quartz and Dekton counter for the island.

Atelier Sama Plan.jpg

This kitchen that sits in a newly constructed single family dwelling in Rivière-des-Prairies has carved out a special place for itself and it embodies the notion that a kitchen can reach beyond its original scope and draw you in for so much more than cooking. The choice of materials and the importance of natural light are the key ingredients in the design of this kitchen.

Materials: white polyurethane lacquer with 30% gloss, elm veneer, marble backsplash and quartz countertop.





This loft in Old Montreal is the ideal canvas for creating a kitchen that is industrial in feel, yet discrete and elegant. The architectural details are the main focus of this space and the kitchen aims to put them in the forefront. Carefully planned out storage and work zones as well as meticulous detailing make this kitchen one to remember.

Materials: beige, white and black acrylic, black painted steel, black stained oak for shelves and tabletop, quartz and granite counter.

This project is part of a complete condo renovation in Montreal. Wood, lacquer and natural stone are the pillars of the overall design in which contrasts are juxtaposed to create a kitchen that is both dynamic and harmonious. The vertical slats of white oak contribute to the transition between the rooms in order to ensure the integration of the kitchen into the living space.

Materials: solid white oak, white oak veneer in a plank effect, gray polyurethane lacquer with 30% gloss, quartzite counter and backsplash.
