Peter & Rob Braam – Owners/Operators
Peter and Rob Braam started Braam’s Custom Cabinets in 1980, when the two built and installed every cabinet out of their father’s work shop. In 1983, it became a three way partnership with their father, Adrian, joined the team as he was unwilling to accept retirement at that time or at any time as he still comes to work every day at the age of 88. It is most certainly Adrian’s work ethic that was instilled upon both Peter and Rob at an early age that has become the driving force behind the success of Braam’s Custom Cabinets. Braam’s is now operating out of a 47,000 square foot manufacturing facility with all the latest in CNC machine technology and a crew of well-seasoned cabinetmakers and professional support personnel, many of them having been with the company for over 15 years. Rob is responsible for the management of the manufacturing shop and overseeing the field installations and is often hands on, ensuring that every Braam’s client is satisfied down to the last detail.
The company’s growth also includes three showrooms in London, Ontario; Oakville, Ontario; and Birmingham, Michigan. Each Braam’s location has a dedicated design team in, all skilled in tailoring cabinetry to your specific needs. Peter oversees our design and sales staff in each of the showrooms and has a hand in all sales and marketing for the company. Peter works hard to ensure that each of our client’s vision comes to life!

Paula – Sales & Design Consultant
I joined the Braam’s team in September 2012, with 8 years of cabinetry and design experience under my belt. In addition to my education in Interior Design, I also hold a Bachelor of Commerce from Saint Mary’s University. Coupled together, these skills ensure I am well equipped to handle all manner of projects that come my way.
Variety is the spice of life, or so the saying goes, so it should come as no surprise that I enjoy designing in a variety of different styles. I am always researching new products and materials in an attempt to offer a fresh take on each project. As a designer, I will listen and gain an understanding of your wants and needs while paying close attention to detail so you don’t have to.
Taral – Sales & Design Consultant
I joined the Braam’s team in November 2013. The exceptional training in architectural design & detailing I received at school of Environmental Design gave me the confidence to work successfully on unique projects since 2005. I am influenced to some degree by modernist design concepts and draw great inspiration from Mies van der Rohe`s famous words “Less is more”. My previous Residential and Retail experience has helped shape my design philosophy and played heavily into assessing, diagnosing & meeting needs, working with time & budget and managing all manner of projects.
As a design consultant, my main focus is serving the client. I love meeting interesting and eclectic people and enjoy the variety of experiences a cabinetry design career provides. My job is to listen intently. I understand that designing is an intricate process and require a great deal of attention and detailing, keeping in mind the uniqueness of the trends and the excellent range of materials.

My patience and dedication as a designer helps make this process enjoyable and successful. I make sure that I’m highly available to my clients and industry professionals so I can offer a high level of customer service.
