Every section of cabinetry we create is completely custom, down to an eighth of an inch. The result? An efficient kitchen designed with both style and structure in mind.
To help you get the most out of your living spaces, we seek to maximize every bit of square footage in your floor plan—no wasted space or obtrusive gaps in sight. With Ideal Kitchen, there’s no need to sacrifice form for function, or the other way around.
We take your dreams seriously and want you to love the space you live in. Every inch of it.
to Maximize Your Living Space
a sampling of recent projects
A fireplace in need of visual interest. A basement ideally suited for a bar. A bathroom that could use extra storage. No matter what you have in mind, Ideal Kitchen can create a custom design plan for any space in a home that would benefit from cabinets.
Josh personally sees each project through to completion, and is happy to provide references for trusted plumbers, electricians, or general contractors as needed—whatever it takes to bring your vision to fruition.
Founded in 2012 by Josh Lucas, Ideal Kitchen is a premier provider of custom cabinetry in Nova Scotia for new construction and home renovation projects. For Josh, what started as a gig sweeping floors for a prominent cabinetry company has turned into a 20+ year career enhancing the enjoyment of home through custom cabinet design and installation.
As a proprietor, Josh is as hands-on as they come. Whether he’s working with a builder or directly with a homeowner, he’s involved in each project from ideation to implementation to ensure the delivery of a seamless design that performs just as great as it looks.

Once you’ve completed your wishlist, a visit to our showroom is the next step toward realizing your vision.

Please consider the following prior to our first meeting:
“The workmanship that went into our kitchen from beginning to end was amazing. We met with Josh to show him our plans, he provided us with some suggestions that were so helpful and made the end result truly beautiful. My emails were always answered in a very friendly and timely manner which made this project less stressful. Ideal Kitchens Inc. made me ‘My Dream Kitchen’ that turned out better than I had ever envisioned. I feel so proud & happy to gather with friends & family in my beautiful kitchen. We highly recommend Ideal Kitchens Inc.”

Trends come and go, which is why we want to help you avoid choosing a design that will only be in style for a moment. You may be in your “forever home” now, but it's still important to consider the resale value of your selections—and of course the same goes for home flippers! If creating a space of enduring value and universal appeal is a goal, we’re happy to advise you on styles and colors that will remain relevant for the long haul.
We’re intentional about using materials that stand the test of time while achieving a high standard of style. To that end, for our PVC cabinetry, we’ve partnered with Thermoform.inc to provide our components. What exactly does that mean for you? PVC is a durable, high-design coating. While it has the timeless look of wood, it’s a superior product in terms of durability, water resistance, and ease of cleaning. The 12-year warranty on these cabinet doors is as attractive as the beautiful, clean aesthetic they impart.
It’s one thing to build a kitchen that looks good, but another to create a space that fulfills a client’s needs and strikes their fancy. Love the convenience of a recycle center? Could your at-home bakery business use a pull-out drawer specifically for cookie sheets? How about placing the dishwasher to the left of the sink if you’re left-handed? We’re here to create a kitchen that serves you, down to the last detail.
We walk our clients through every step of the decision-making process, and make a practice of moving beyond the surface to gain a deeper understanding of their unique preferences and lifestyle. Whether it’s bringing new life to an old kitchen or integrating custom work into a brand new build, the big reveal is our ultimate reward—and we work hard to ensure our clients love the final result.
At Ideal Kitchen, we believe every kitchen should be pleasing to the eye and optimized for productivity. Here’s how we accomplish this:
“We came to Josh with some sense of a vision for our kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, and he was able to fully realize it. Josh also made several helpful suggestions based on his expertise, which really improved the flow and organization of our kitchen. Josh was also very quick to respond to any of our questions via email, and was incredibly flexible in working with us. Ideal Kitchen Inc. has a large selection of cabinetry finishes, and endless selections of hardware! Most importantly, the final product and install looks beautiful and our kitchen and cabinetry is easily my favourite part of our new build!”
