When it comes to both the function and aesthetic of your kitchen, the cabinets you use are one of the most important elements of the design. Without enough cabinets, you won’t have enough storage space. Additionally, the cabinets take up a lot of visual space, which means they have a huge impact on the overall visual design. Keeping that in mind, it’s vital that you consider all of your cabinet options.
For example, you should strongly consider the use of RTA (ready to assemble) kitchen cabinets.
The following are just a few of the benefits of using RTA kitchen cabinets:
If you’re doing a complete kitchen remodel, then saving money where you can, will help to keep you within your budget. RTA cabinets are going to be more affordable than customized assembled cabinets because they are not assembled before delivery. It’s also worth noting that they are cheaper to ship because of the fact that they are not assembled. Buying pre-assembled cabinets makes it more difficult–and therefore, more expensive–to ship.
RTA cabinets are also mass produced. However, just because they are mass produced doesn’t mean you’ll be limited in your options. You’ll be able to choose from many configurations and design choices to ensure that your RTA cabinets fit your aesthetic design.
Don’t be fooled by the fact that RTA cabinets are cheaper than many other types of cabinets. This is due to the fact that they are mass produced, don’t require labor on the manufacturer’s part, and are easy to ship. They have nothing to do with the quality of the cabinets. In fact, most RTA cabinets tend to be of a higher quality than pre-built cabinets. Pre-built cabinets are often made with low-quality materials, such as thin wooden veneers, lightweight particleboard, and cheap hardware.
RTA cabinets are typically built with high-quality hardwood, plywood materials, and hardware. Depending on where you get your RTA cabinets from and the options you choose, your RTA cabinets could rival any custom cabinets that you could have had built in terms of quality–and they’ll certainly be more affordable.
If you order custom or pre-built cabinets, you may end up having to wait quite some time for them to be shipped. No labor is required when you order your RTA cabinets. In fact, they will most likely already be ready to ship when you put your order in. Unless you order well ahead of time, ordering anything but RTA cabinets could put you behind schedule.
Easy to assemble
RTA cabinets come with instructions on how to assemble them. Assembly is kept simple as well so that homeowners with a bit of renovation experience will be able to handle the project. Of course, you can also just have your contractor install them for you. Even if you do this, it shouldn’t take them that long. RTA cabinet construction and installation should be a cinch for any contractor used to more complicated renovations.
When it comes to your kitchen cabinets, durability, function, and aesthetic value are all important. When it comes down to it, RTA cabinets are going to be of higher quality than pre-built cabinets and more affordable than custom cabinets, making them one of your best options.
