There are many rumors and pieces of word of mouth history floating around about kitchen cabinetry, and especially about RTA cabinets. RTA cabinets, though, have evolved and become a huge force in the cabinet industry. Many people, though, still have preconceived notions based on yesteryear’s RTA cabinets, and don’t know the state of the marketplace offerings today.
A Few Misconceptions
There are a bunch of misconceptions out there, but we will lay out some of the big ones for you. One is that RTA cabinets still need a professional to install them. Another is that RTA kitchen cabinets, while useful, won’t raise your home’s value. A third is that little to no choice is available. We here at RTA Cabinet Store are here to tell you, all of these are simple falsehoods.
RTA cabinets are made to be put together easily, need fairly standard tools, and each cabinet shipped comes with easy to read, simple instructions. RTA cabinets are made for the DIYer. RTA cabinets have also made incredible strides in terms of looks and quality, and now rival just about any custom cabinet set you can have installed. At many times less cost, you can have a fantastic and sturdy kitchen, increasing the value of your home, at much less than the cost of other options. As for choice? There are so many choices available, the hardest thing you will have to do is decide which one will fit your home best!
Getting Your Cabinets
Many people also think that getting your cabinets over the internet isn’t a good idea, and that they will take a long time to get to you. This also not true. There are many reputable vendors out there, and they have better prices than brick and mortar stores, as they are able to pass the savings of not paying for multiple buildings on to the customer. Many times, the cabinets ship out within the week (two, on the outside, if they are really popular and stock is out!). Plus, today’s shipping industry is so advanced that it usually takes a maximum of one week (this is if you are REALLY off the grid), and usually just a few days to get your cabinets!
It is true, though, that there are some disreputable dealers out there, and there is disinformation floating around. The best idea is to take a little time and educate yourself on the current state of things. To that effect, we would like you to get the inside scoop on buying cabinets online, including common dirty tricks and misconceptions!
