Since 1948, Randall’s has been Ottawa’s go-to place for all things home decor. A family business, the store offers premium products, unparalleled customer service and a permanent team with years of experience.
“We’ve been doing it for 74 years, and there’s a reason for that,” says owner Marc Pilon.
Randall’s is recognized for its expertise in painting and staining. It is the only store in Ottawa offering custom colors for paints and stains, ensuring a consistent look for all interior and exterior wood, metal and cement surfaces. “Painting is one of the easiest, most effective and cost-effective ways to give your home a decorative boost,” says Marc.
One of the store’s most popular services is its free window treatment consultations., where specialists travel directly to a client’s home or office. Bringing fabric swatches, the team will take measurements and offer advice on bespoke products that best suit the space. Customers can choose from a wide selection of branded blinds, blinds, shutters, sheers, side panels and curtains with options at all price points and motorized operating systems that can integrate with your smart home.
Once a customer places an order, Randall’s manages the installation and guarantees the fit.
“We always make sure we have the best people and the best products,” says Pilon. “You can’t have one without the other.”
In addition, the store offers interior design consultations.. No project is too big or too small, from choosing colors for a quick refresh to decorating an entire home.
During these consultations, a Randall’s decorator will visit a client’s home or office, bringing color swatches and samples. They work with clients to select paint colors, wallpaper, lighting, and even custom furniture. Plus, when clients book an interior design consultation, they get a deep discount on all paints and sundries.
Randall’s clients range from first-time homeowners to people looking to update or downsize their homes to commercial businesses. Often these are regular customers who came to Randall 15 or 20 years ago.
“They raised their family, and now they come back to Randall to update it or when they downsize,” says Pilon.
Located on Bank Street, Randall’s regularly welcomes customers from across Ottawa.
“We’re very lucky to have such a loyal following from customers across the city,” says Pilon, with people coming from as far away as Nepean and Orleans.
It’s easy to see why customers return to Randall again and again.: In addition to a commitment to quality customer service, Randall’s offers exclusive products, including a line of luxury paints and stains, epoxies for floors and tabletops, custom window treatments from top quality, custom furniture, designer fabrics, quartz and granite counter tops, kitchen/bathroom knobs and handles and probably the widest selection of wallpapers in town.
“Your home is your greatest asset,” says Pilon. “Now is the best time for a homeowner to see a significant return on investment without a major renovation”
