Top Myths of Ready to Assemble Cabinets

Installing Cabinets - LevelingPeople spend hours and hours researching the best cabinets for their homes, and without a doubt, one of the first things they’ll see is ready to assemble cabinets. RTA cabinets differ from preassembled cabinets in that they arrive at the home not together, but organized in such a way that the cabinet owner can put them together and place them on the wall. People are often concerned about RTA cabinets, but there is no need to worry. We’re here to debunk the top RTA cabinet myths.

RTA Cabinets Are Expensive

People often think that since they’re a special subset of cabinetry that they are more expensive than you’d get at a store. The opposite couldn’t be truer. Since the factory doesn’t have to assemble them, you’re not getting that cost factored in. When you buy pre-assembled cabinets, you’re paying not only for the cabinets, but the time and labor of the factory person putting them together. You’re also paying for all the extra shipping for sending those massive boxes to you. RTA cabinets come packaged ready to put together—they only labor it costs you is your own. You’ll end up saving a ton of money on RTA cabinets, and know that you put the work in to make your kitchen beautiful.

RTA Cabinets Are Shoddy

For some reason, some people feel that our cabinets are somehow inferior to the pre-assembled variety, but they’re actually the exact same. We use the same materials and models as those that come pre-assembled. They are assembled at the factory, so we just cut out that part. We package everything and send it to you directly. You choose the extent of your durability by choosing plywood versus real wood, etc. Our cabinets are no different than the pre-assembled kind except that it will save you a ton of money. When it comes to how well our cabinets stack up against wear and tear and stand up against the test of time, they’re just like every other type of inexpensive kitchen cabinet.

RTA Cabinets Are Hard to Put Together

By far the biggest fear people have when it comes to ready to assemble cabinets is whether they can put them together. If you have some ability at building items, then you won’t have a problem. You don’t need special tools, just a Phillips-head screwdriver and a little patience. The boxes are designed to make putting everything together as simple as possible. If you do have some issues, then you can always contact a professional to put them together and it won’t cost you any more than buying them preassembled.
