Need to give your kitchen a makeover on a budget? It’s a more common problem than it might seem, especially when preparing a house for sale, or when buying a fixer-upper. Fortunately, with the high quality and deep savings of RTA cabinets, your kitchen makeover can come in on budget, no problem.
Save Money by DIYing What You Can
If you’re a reasonably handy person, assembling ready-to-assemble cabinets is well within your capabilities. Our cam-lock assembly is easy and idiot-proof. With just a screwdriver, you can feel when the pieces are fully locked together with no guess-work, and no risk of stripping screws. Yeah, it’s a little more work, but the payoff comes in the pride of being able to look at your new kitchen and say “I did that.” And, since you’re not paying a factory worker, store employee, or contractor to do the actual assembly of your cabinets, you save big compared to what you’d pay in a big box retail store.
Cut Out the Middle Man on the Things You Can’t DIY
Unless you’re a master carpenter with an expensive wood shop at your disposal, what you can’t do is design and manufacture your cabinets. Fortunately, that’s where we come in. We work closely with overseas manufacturers, to design easy-to-assemble cabinets made of premium materials. Unlike other “bargain brands,” RTA Cabinet Store uses the best materials available for the job, including furniture-grade hardwood plywood box frames, hardwood face frames, and solid hardwood doors and drawer faces on stained models. For painted cabinets, we prefer high-density fiberboard for its superior finish and its resistance to age-cracking in the finish over time, but we never use particle board.
The end result is top-quality kitchen cabinetry at a fraction of the cost, because you’re dealing directly with the distributor, rather than paying an extra layer of shipping and markups you’d have to deal with at a retail store. Best of all, we ship your new cabinets right to your door, simple as that!
You can even DIY the layout. No, really, check out our DIY online kitchen design tool, free to our valued customers. It lets you lay out any cabinet we carry on a virtual footprint of your kitchen, with an easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface. You can save your work and come back later, and it’ll walk you through choosing accessories, installation kits, and everything else you need to make your kitchen makeover go nice and smooth. It even builds the order for you, so you can be sure you’re not forgetting anything. Check it out here, today!
