RTA or Ready To Assemble kitchen cabinets are an alternative to pre-assembled cabinets that have seen a surge in popularity in recent years. Also known as flat-pack furniture, they are immensely popular amongst those of you who are looking to get yourself the perfect cabinet for your kitchen but at the same time are on a strict budget and can’t break the bank when doing your cabinet shopping.
The reason they come at a cheaper cost is that the manufacturer is saving time and money not having to assemble the product themselves cutting down on overheads and other costs meaning that they can pass the savings on to you, the customer. However, before you buy ready to assemble cabinets from wholesalers or retailers, there are a few things you should know.
The first is that there is a broader range of ready to assemble cabinets as opposed to pre-assembled cabinets; this helps you in the aspect that you have more chance of finding the perfect cabinet to complement the existing design of your kitchen. This is very important as the kitchen is one of the few communal areas in the house where family and friends tend to gather and is also high up on the agenda of potential buyers of your home. So, if you have a kitchen cabinet that sticks out like a sore thumb this can sometimes put them off entirely or can have an effect on the value of your house/home.
