Kitchen & Bath

At the Oakes Bros., Inc., Kitchen Department our number one objective is to listen to our customers. Designing a kitchen or bath is about what the customer wants and how the space will be used. Customer Service and personal touch are how we make these rooms become an integral part of your “HOME”. A properly designed space will add value to your home and will stand up with time. It is easy to learn about product and technique, but it is functionality and style that comes with the experience of our team. Their knowledge, expertise and passion will make this process a positive experience.

Neil OakesNeil is a founding co-owner of Oakes Bros., Inc. He began designing kitchens and baths in the early 1980’s. Initially he designed custom kitchen cabinets built on-site at Oakes Bros., Inc. Neil was one of the first Kitchen Designers in the Connecticut River Valley to use 2020 Design computer software. His expertise, skill, and knowledge grew along with the industry and as his customers became more sophisticated and more exacting.

“I don’t sell kitchen just to sell kitchens,” Neil says. “I only sell products that I would have in my own house. Actually, I DO have Candlelight Cabinets in my own home. They are solid wood and beautifully made, and they will last for decades.”

“My biggest focus is always to listen to the customer. Even after all these years in the business, some of my best kitchens have come from the customers’ ideas.”

SONY DSCPeter studied art and design in college, and has lived and worked in many places in the Northeast from Delaware to Maine.  He brings Kitchen & Bath experience to Oakes Bros., Inc. that includes design and sales for an Upstate, NY cabinet manufacturer’s showroom, K & B department management for Builder’s Square and years of practice in the field as a carpenter and installer.

“I look forward every day to getting to know new people.  It’s exciting to apply my varied design and building experiences in a thoughtful exchange with other people; design works best when it’s a two-way flow of ideas’ he said.  “And, one of the reasons we chose to live in this area is that I enjoy the challenges presented by working with vintage structures, and discovering creative solutions that enhance people’s enjoyment of their homes.  It’s really special when we can do this together, and still pay respect to the skill, materials and traditions of the folks who came here before us.”
