Are RTA Cabinets a Better Investment than Custom?

One of the biggest questions facing someone who is beginning the process of designing their new kitchen is what type of cabinets to buy.  Kitchen cabinets are quite an investment, ranging from a few thousand dollars upwards to hundreds of thousands for a large custom job.  The old rule of thumb since time immemorial has been “if it’s more expensive, its higher quality.”

Fortunately for us, this is no longer the case!  It’s hard to wrap one’s head around it, especially since the idea that something multiple times less expensive could be of equal (or better!) quality and stand the test of time, but technology has made this possible.

Custom Cabinets, an Explanation

Custom cabinets, as most of us know, are made-to-order cabinets, usually by a cabinet maker, and are made to fit your kitchen, exactly how you want them to be.  They are normally made from very good materials and real wood, not particle board, and are crafted by hand by a professional with loads of experience.

All of this, though, makes the price sky high, as the materials involved are not purchased in bulk and the man hours add up pretty quickly, and the process can leave you without a working kitchen for quite a while.

High Quality RTA Cabinets

One of the great thing about RTA cabinets, other than the fact that they are inexpensive kitchen cabinets, is that if you are smart about it, you can get amazing cabinets that can meet or beat the stability and quality of custom cabinets.  Technology has advanced a lot, and through bulk material purchase and precision factory lines, excellent quality cabinets can be produced for relatively little money. 

Each and every cabinet line sold by RTA Cabinet Store is checked and vetted to be of the highest quality, so you know that whatever you choose, it will be worth it.  Of course, some people are very strong in their opinions that only custom cabinets are the best, and complain about RTA cabinets, but the vast majority of consumers are thrilled with their purchases and realize what the rest of us should:  RTA Cabinets are the future of cabinetry, and we can use the money we save on them to design a better kitchen in other areas. 

Choose Which Fits Your Space Best

If you are stuck on getting custom cabinets, nothing else will do, no matter the high level of quality and long lastingness.  If, though, you want to save big money, know you are getting a superb quality product and put that money you save to better use somewhere else, we suggest you take it one step further and create a kitchen design specifically tailored to your space.

It’s easy to decide which style of cabinet you like best, but not so easy to design a whole kitchen based on that design. RTA Cabinet Store has expertly trained designers on staff and ready to help! Sign up now to get your free, no obligation design consultation.
