Celebrating 40 Years at Ideal Cabinets

Showroom demonstrates some of Ideal's cabinetry.^

When Ken Rakes first opened the doors of Ideal Cabinets in 1960 in Christiansburg, Formica countertops were the rage and cabinets came in a wide variety of options—so long as you wanted birch or knotty pine. Today’s customers want more choices in their kitchen d├ęcor, says Rakes.

So on May 8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Ideal Cabinets will welcome the community to an open house to view the latest in kitchen design. Sixteen kitchen and bathroom displays—featuring everything from hand-rubbed traditional cherry cabinets to sleek contemporary models with underlit glass countertops—will inspire those dreaming of design options for their own kitchens.

The grand opening of Ideal Cabinets' newly renovated 1,700 square foot showroom at 103 N. Franklin St. celebrates 40 years of service of the family-run business, says Rakes. Despite a floundering economy, Ideal Cabinets has continued to grow, he says.

“We started small in a rented facility with no showroom space,” says Rakes. “Five years later, we moved into our Christiansburg location and have been blessed with continuing growth and a dedicated staff, two of which have been with us for more than 25 years.”

The new showroom features WoodMode cabinetry and the latest in under cabinet lighting, dazzling tile backsplashes and custom storage options. There are options for eco-friendly design, from recycled quartz countertops to LEED-certified cabinetry. “People want kitchens that are durable, design styles that are timeless, and materials that are sustainable,” says Rakes. And knotty pine? “It’s not a big mover, but we’ll custom-design anything,” he says.
