RTA cabinets: kitchen style for less

by Judi Sandall

Ready-to-assemble (RTA) cabinets in your kitchen? Did you say, "Not a chance!"? When many people think of RTA cabinets, they envision the poorly made and unattractive fiberboard cabinets of the past. Well these are not your mother's RTA cabinets. Kitchen remodel experts now feel confident recommending RTA cabinets to savvy homeowners who want high style and excellent construction as well as reasonable prices. Whether your kitchen design calls for wood--maple, oak, birch, cherry, bamboo--or thermofoil, RTA cabinets can give you a designer look at a price you can afford.

Most RTA cabinets are now made with solid wood construction and can last a lifetime. Because they take up less space and are easier to store and ship, RTA cabinets sustain less damage during shipping, are usually more readily available and take less time in transit once the customer has placed an order.

RTA cabinets: kitchen customization options

A full range of convenient kitchen options and upgrades is available for RTA cabinets. Kitchen goodies like tiltout drawers and rollout garbage and recycle bins, lazy Susans and spice racks are just some of the custom touches you can include. Adding special feature cabinets--plate or wine racks; crown molding or wooden onlays and appliques; and decorative fillers--can make a kitchen with RTA cabinets look custom at 30 percent to 50 percent of what custom cabinets would cost.

Here's an example of one online discounter's prices for 11 all-wood RTA cabinets suitable for a 10-by-10 kitchen:

  • $1,095 for builder-grade oak cabinets
  • $1,535 for builder-grade maple cabinets
  • $1,690 for semi-custom discount cabinets
  • $2,325 for deluxe discount cabinets

Kitchen cabinet companies usually carry a sizable collection of the latest and most popular cabinets styles. If cabinet assembly is an issue, many cabinet companies are willing to assemble RTA cabinets for an extra charge or you can hire a local contractor. However, getting a custom kitchen look for less--priceless!
