Castorama is a French retailer of DIY and home improvement tools and supplies. It has its head office in Templemars.[1]

The company became a subsidiary of Kingfisher plc in 1998, along with Castorama's own subsidiary Brico Dépôt. Some outlets have been converted or relocated under the Brico Dépôt DIY warehouse format, based on the B&Q Warehouse fascia in the UK. Poland (about 50 stores), Russia (20 stores), and Italy (12 stores) also have Castorama outlets.
