Don’t Settle for Ordinary

Turn to Ideal Cabinets for extraordinary style and function

Ideal Cabinets began back in 1970 in Christiansburg, Virginia, because Ken Rakes wanted to take care of his family. He decided that he could do that by selling a quality cabinet product to other people for their families; and that is how a family business with the purpose of making other families happy was born . 

For nearly 50 years, we have been one of the best known and most well-respected kitchen design firms in Virginia. In that 50 years, we’ve built and renovated more kitchens and baths than we can count. We’ve worked on countless custom bookshelves, pantries, and closets too.  We’ve branched out into commercial work as well.  Today, any cabinet you can imagine can be your “Ideal” cabinet. Just ask the experts, we can take care of all your cabinetry needs. 

While we’re best known for the exceptional quality of our cabinetry, we also have an experienced staff of designers and installers that will help plan and coordinate every aspect of your project.

At Ideal Cabinets, we use thoughtful design to create beautiful and functional kitchens and baths that reflect the lifestyle and personality of each client.  

Our mission is to offer each person the best products and designs for their investment. We will accomplish this by maintaining state of the art showrooms, knowledgeable staff, superior installation services, and the best customer service possible. 

After all these years, we are still family owned and operated, and everyone who works at Ideal feels like they are part of the family too.

Come see us today, and let us show you what is so special “About Us.”

” I love people.  I enjoy talking to all types of people. I could sit down and eat lunch with anyone.  I like to get to know my customers, so I know what is going to make them happy. ”

-Ken Rakes, founder of Ideal Cabinets
