Duane Heisler started Ideal Cabinets in Décor back in 1975. He was working for The Co-op at the time and decided to start his own business in the home décor industry. Thanks to a friend who supplied him with flooring samples, Duane had the opportunity to open Heisler Carpet and Drapery.
By 1983, he built his current shop, and after a few years noticed his customers had a need for local retail cabinetry. In the 1990s, he partnered with Décor Cabinets, located in Morden, MB, to sell custom cabinets and countertops.
In 1991, the business changed names to Heisler Home Decorating, More recently, he changed the name again to Ideal Cabinets and Décor.
Today, Duane enjoys running the business and loves helping those in the community design and customize their spaces.
About The Staff
Throughout the years, Duane has gained experience in a wide range of professions. After graduating high school, Duane worked as a Farm Helper, and then a Seismographer. He then moved on to work with PFRA (Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration), Canada Wire, and Oilfield Trucking. Eventually, he settled into working with floor covering, which led him to opening Ideal Cabinets and Décor.
He loves the satisfaction that his customers get when they find the perfect product from their home, whether it’s wallpaper, flooring, or the perfect paint, because he knows how important it is to feel comfortable in your own space. He is always happy to help out customers and friends, and always loves to see a good before-and-after transformation.
Norma Dunsmore has worked in the décor industry for decades. She began working as a bookkeeper for a company that sold paint and wallpaper. During this time, she met Duane Heisler and began working with him as a Sales Consultant and Designer in 1990. It is here where she realized her love for interior design. She loves the way that small changes can completely transform a space, whether it be new cabinets, or renovated flooring and paint. Norma’s love of design and aesthetic appeal carries over into her personal life, where she enjoys spending her time tending her yard and her garden to perfection, crafting, and reading.
From Our Clients
After living in our farm home for 35+ years, our kitchen had served our family well. It was now time to renovate and give it a new look.
Our first visit to Ideal Cabinets & Décor was very positive. I found the staff very helpful.
They listened and responded by showing us the newest and most efficient products for our dream kitchen and every step of the process was well-planned from the beginning to end.
The journey and all those involved by making it a reality have made it so worthwhile and rewarding.
The kitchen tends to be the heart of the home, and I can say I, along with my family, have a lovely one to spend time together in, for many years to come. Thank you, Ideal Cabinets & Décor!
Great place to do business. Very knowledgeable and patient staff that took the time to answer all our questions with no pressure.
Good quality cabinets that we are very pleased with.
Excellent friendly service.
My process from start to finish with Ideal Cabinets and Décor was great! They have a great selection of designs and colors, and the craftmanship is great!
There were some custom additions that I requested and everything was exactly as I wanted. They were great with any design alterations I made through the process as well so I got my kitchen and dining room just how I wanted it!
I renovated my house myself and Duane was very helpful on every step making sure I did everything properly and at the right time so they could install the cabinets in the correct timeline. They pointed me in the right direction for countertops as well, and were able to get me the best price!
I have recommended Ideal Cabinets to anyone who has asked about my house renovation.
