(RTA) Ready to Assemble Kitchen Cabinets

RTA Kitchen Cabinets Pros

Ready to assemble cabinets offer a whole host of benefits. To start, RTA models are more space efficient, since they are packaged flat, making it the ideal choice for convenient storage if you live in a tight space and need to make the most of it. Another great bonus of RTA cabinets is their affordability. Not only are they more space-efficient, they are also more cost-efficient. Since there is no outside assembly involved, the price is slashed, making it easier to stay within your budget when remodeling your kitchen. Ready to assemble cabinets also require much less room when shipping from retailer to consumer, so the shipping cost is dropped and you get to rake in additional savings. If you are someone who loves the feeling of making or fixing something with your own bare hands, RTA cabinets make it possible for you to summon your inner handyman as you build your pieces all on your own. There is something to be said for independently getting things done around your home without just pulling a piece of furniture off the factory line.

To ensure that we are able to satisfy each and every one of our customers’ needs, we deal with four separate manufacturers, all of whom use different assembly styles. They include:

  • IKS and Forevermark (Country Oak Classic, New Yorker, Cinnamon Glaze, Cherry Glaze, Espresso, Honey, Shakertown, Ice White Shaker, Pepper Shaker, Sandstone Rope, Sienna Rope, Brownstone, Pearl, Tribecca, Oasis, Pacifica, Savannah, Mocha Shaker, Spice Maple, Chestnut Pillow, or Carolina Oak) - Metal L Bracket assembly. Pre-mounted metal locking plates installed to the wood panels, so assembling is as simple as sliding the locking plates over the corresponding L-bracket, and fastening with screws in the pre-drilled holes. This method of assembly is not only simple, but provides a very durable, strong cabinet.
  • Less Care Cabinets (Sierra, Newport, Cherryville, Villa Cherry, Geneva, Richmond) - These cabinets incorporate the Cam-lock system, which is simple to use and has become the most popular method for RTA cabinets.
  • Innovation Cabinets (American Heritage, Bordeaux, Coastal Cream, Hennessey, Makintosh) - Pre-installed Wood dowels provided and joined together with Brad Nails.

RTA Kitchen Cabinets Cons

As mentioned above, RTA cabinets do require you to have basic skills when it comes to constructing furniture on your own. Luckily, cabinet building does not require a long amount of time to complete each piece. When it comes to an investment as visible as kitchen cabinets, you want to make sure you install them correctly on the first go, to avoid ugly holes in the walls and uneven alignment. You also need to make sure you don’t drop or lose any pieces while building, or damage any surrounding furniture. For those of us who are less hands-on than others, ready to assemble cabinets can seem less appealing than the alternative. Although there is certainly a bit of a learning curve involved when you first start to assemble your cabinets, once you get the hang of it, it’s really not so bad. Our customers can typically build a wall cabinet in 10-15 minutes and a standard base cabinet in around 15-20 minutes, which is a testament to how intuitive and user-friendly our cabinets really are.
