Castorama (French pronunciation: ​[kastoʁama]) is a French retailer of DIY and home improvement tools and supplies, part of the British group Kingfisher plc. It has its head office in Templemars, France.[1]

The company became a subsidiary of Kingfisher plc in 2002, 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) and Russia (20 stores), also have Castorama outlets; in Italy, some Castorama outlets existed, but were subsequently sold, and now they carry the Leroy Merlin brand.
