What is ready to assemble cabinetry?

Ready to assemble (RTA) cabinetry are pretty much just as their name implies; they are cabinets that homeowners have to assemble themselves. Most RTA cabinets are sold through online retailers and they are usually available in the same woods and styles as their already assembled counterparts seen in design centers. RTA retailers offer choices of finishes but if you want to save even more money, you can even purchase the cabinets unfinished and do the work yourself.

When you're looking at RTA cabinet companies there are a few tips to keep in mind:

  1. Planning. Designing a kitchen cabinet layout can be complicated and most homeowners could use a little help. It can be a good idea to choose a retailer with a customer service team available for consultation concerning cabinet location and choices.
  2. Quality. Just as with already assembled cabinets, there can be different quality levels with RTA retailers. All wood construction, soft closing drawers and doors and dovetail joints are usually good indicators of high quality cabinets.
  3. References. Don't just rely on reviews and testimonials posted on the company's Website; ask for names of past customers who can be contacted for references concerning ease of assembly and the quality of the retailer's cabinets.

You may not have to put off that kitchen remodeling project. Look for your toolbox and place your order for ready to assemble cabinetry.
