For over 50 years, Ideal Supplies has been the most trusted local hardware store in Ludlow, KY and the greater Cincinnati area. With a wide range of landscape tools, paints, plumbing supplies, ready mix concrete, lumber and mulch, Ideal Supplies has everything you need for your home and gardening projects. Whether you’re a painting contractor, a professional landscaper, or just have a passion for DIY projects around the home, this is the place to go for the highest quality products at the most reasonable prices.

Beyond the items they sell, though, this store focuses on ensuring every customer is completely satisfied by the service they receive. The team at Ideal is more than happy to consult with customers about their projects, and to share their expertise about the products they sell. Whether you're looking to repaint the house, put in a patio, or expand your garden, you’ll get nothing but straight talk from the pros at Ideal Supplies, who work from decades of experience and accumulated industry knowledge. Furthermore, if the store doesn’t have what you’re looking for, they’ll gladly order it for you.

To be sure, the fact that Ideal Supplies has been a part of the local community since 1945 differentiates this store from the big box competition; folks come in knowing that, when they're looking for information or advice about the tools and supplies they need, they’ll be talking with a staff of dedicated locals. As a small business, the only bottom line here is that everyone walks away with exactly what they need—and this approach has certainly paid off, as no other hardware store in the area has a better reputation for stellar customer service.

Stop by and see the difference yourself! Find out more about Ideal Supplies online, or feel free to call them at (859) 491-6666 to talk about your next construction, home improvement, or garden project.
