"Because there are so many options, we have at least one of everything we offer on display in the showroom," manager Craig Kangas said. "With one product, you have endless options."

While Great Northern Cabinetry and Merillat are the primary lines of cabinetry Rajala's Kitchens carries, Kangas said other brands are available.

Countertop materials are available in laminate, solid surface, quartz and granite and are available in a variety of colors.

Customers can choose from Delta, Kohler and Moen brands of kitchen and bath fixtures and accessories. As far as tubs and showers, Kangas said they carry Kohler, Sterling, Warm Rain and Aker brands.

Rajala's Kitchens is the area's Finnleo Sauna & Steam dealer, offering both traditional modular saunas, portable saunas, and a premium line of far-infrared saunas by Saunatec that can be assembled anywhere in the home.

Kangas said infrared saunas provide an even, soothing heat, directly radiated to the body.

"It's a dry, radiant heat that induces a deeper sweat," he said. "This kind of deep sweat helps to cleanse and rid toxins from the body. It's very beneficial for health and wellness."

Kangas said infrared saunas are ideal for a pre-workout warmup to help loosen the muscles or can serve as a relaxing wind-down at the end of the day.

To give customers an idea of how the infrared sauna works, Kangas said they keep one on display in the showroom.

Standard features include digital controls inside and out, fast assembly with no tools necessary, lighting systems and color light therapy and a sound and video system.

"What customers like about these saunas is the ease of use and convenience. And, there's almost no time waiting for preheating," Kangas said. "They're easy to assemble and disassemble and they plug into a standard 110 outlet."

Sauna stoves, both wood-fired and electric, wall-mounted and floor standing, are available in a variety of sizes. Rajala's Kitchens also offers a complete line of sauna accessories and pre-built sauna doors. Free delivery is available within the local area.

Rajala's Kitchens has been serving the local area since 1996 and has more than 20 years of experience in the home improvement industry.

Kangas said they offer free design estimates and in-home consultations are available.

"We can meet in your home so that we can take a look at the layout and get the measurements needed," Kangas said. "Otherwise, you can bring in the measurements. We measure and design for our installation or yours, it is guaranteed to fit."

Rajala's Kitchens is located in the Red Ridge Plaza in Houghton at 850 W. Sharon Ave., Suite 10. Business hours are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to noon Saturday. Call 482-4592 or fax 482-4658.
