What Do Ready to Assemble (RTA) Kitchen Cabinets Cost?

by Judi Sandall

Although ready to assemble (RTA) kitchen cabinets are generally guaranteed to be "simple to install" and take only 5-15 minutes per cabinet (according to the supplier websites), you may want to consider that you probably need to be a seasoned do-it-yourselfer with patience AND the proper tools for it to really be "simple." If you do decide to have a contractor install your RTA kitchen cabinets, cost would still be considerably less than custom cabinet options. Contractor assembly and installation rates vary depending on where you live.

RTA Kitchen Cabinets: Things to Consider

Because these cabinets come in a wide range of finishes, materials, and sizes, it's easier to create a customized look for your kitchen. Look for online RTA cabinet sites that offer the following:

  • Instructions on how to properly measure your kitchen
  • 3-D design software so you can design your cabinet layout online
  • Sample pricing before you place your order
  • Shipping cost estimator widget

RTA kitchen cabinets also cost less because, unassembled, they are compact to store and ship. RTA online sites estimate that customers who order RTA cabinets can save from 30 to 50 percent over kitchen cabinets that are already assembled. For solid wood, the RTA Store offers a range of kitchen cabinets costs for a standard 10 X 10 kitchen. Their pricing, which ranges from $1,200 to $2,300, depends on the type of wood and finish and the amount of detail on the cabinets.

Ordering online, direct from the manufacturer/wholesaler can also save you time and frustration because they should have all of the kitchen cabinets you need in stock. One caveat when you purchase RTA kitchen cabinets is to make sure that your supplier will replace cabinets on which the finish is inconsistent; finishes can vary significantly from one run to another.
