5 Benefits of Buying Ready-To-Assemble Kitchen Cabinets

One of the growing trends in kitchen cabinets today are ready-to-assemble (RTA) cabinets. Although RTA cabinets have been available for years, they’re popularity is growing after more and more people have discovered that they can save money and get quality cabinets – all in a way that’s more convenient to assemble that you might expect!

To be honest, there are a lot of benefits to choosing this kind of cabinet for your kitchen. In fact, the benefits go beyond saving money. Here are some of them:


1. High Quality Materials

RTA cabinets are made from high-quality materials. They are comparable to the upgraded cabinets you would find at one of the big box chain stores – but can cost up to 50% less!

Here at RTA Wood Cabinets, our cabinets are made of sturdy, solid wood construction. We do not use particle board for any of our cabinets. Most of our cabinets have a full dovetail box construction and come with soft closing door that has a full extension. This means that you can save money on your next kitchen remodel without sacrificing quality.


2. Multiple Design Options

Another thing about ready-to-assemble cabinets is that there are a lot of different styles to choose from. This means you should be able to find a style that fits the overall design theme of your house as well as your personal preferences for your kitchen.

We find that White Shaker cabinets are the most popular option, and we actually offer a few varieties in off-white shades so you can get a perfect match with your kitchen colors. We also have cabinets available in Grey, Espresso, Blue, and various shades of Cinnamon and Maple Light Brown. You can get your cabinets in a variety of door styles as well, including flat doors and raised panel doors.

4. Easy to Store Until You’re Ready to Install

One big benefit to RTA cabinets that you may not have considered is how easy they are to store until you’re ready to install them.

Typically, a kitchen remodeling project goes through multiple stages, and while you’re working on other aspects of your kitchen upgrade, you’ll need to keep your cabinets stowed away. When cabinets come already assembled, they are incredibly bulky and difficult to set aside until they’re needed. They might even easily be damaged! On the other hand, ready-to-assemble cabinets come in a compact package that can easily stored until you’re ready for them.


5. Quick Shipping RTA Wood Cabinets

Another benefit of buying ready-to-assemble cabinets is that they are shipped quickly and directly to you.

The standard time in the industry is 6-8 weeks from when you order your cabinets until they’re expected arrival. However, we can deliver our ready-to-assemble cabinets to you anywhere in the continental U.S. in just two weeks!
