Rta cabinets vs pre-assembled cabinets

Rta cabinets vs pre-assembled cabinets


Cabinets may not be the exact choice that you first imagine. Some people have the impression that the choice between RTA cabinets and assembled cabinets is a choice about quality, but that is not the case at all.

RTA cabinets are shipped to a homeowner or builder in flat boxes. The pieces are all cut to size, labeled, and finished with the hardware holes pre-drilled and ready to go. When you order from Kitchen Cabinet Kings, the hardware is attached to the cabinet ready for you to put the cabinets together, although many other companies do not offer this extra service. The cabinets arrive at the construction site in the flat boxes, and the homeowner or the person they have hired puts each individual cabinet together and then attaches it to the wall and floor.

The primary advantage of RTA kitchen cabinets or bathroom cabinets is the cost savings. With RTA cabinets, you can choose any quality level you want, from inexpensive pressed wood to the best hardwood. Regardless of the quality of the wood and finish, by choosing RTA over assembled cabinets, you save a significant amount over purchasing the same quality cabinet in an assembled or custom built form.
Because of this excellent price to quality ratio, people who choose ready to assemble cabinets are often able to buy a higher-quality cabinet than they would have been able to afford with an assembled cabinet.
Another advantage of RTA cabinets is how easy they are to assemble. Kitchen Cabinet Kings uses high-quality hardware, with holes pre-drilled and the brackets and hinges already attached to the doors and cabinet sides. To assemble, youll only need a screwdriver and perhaps a rubber mallet to put the cabinets together.

While RTA cabinets cost less in cash outlay, they cost more in time and effort. Although many manufacturers have made the cabinet assembly extremely easy, it will take a novice about 35-45 minutes to assemble the first cabinet. After the initial cabinet, assembly speeds considerably, with many people taking only 15 minutes to assemble each cabinet after the first.
Youll also need to have a design layout of the cabinets so that you know which goes where in the kitchen, and youll need to take extra care to be sure you put the correct pieces together in the right direction. There is also some concern that you will scratch the finish on the cabinet as you put it together. However, following care instructions will help you avoid that problem.

When you purchase assembled cabinets, they are ready to install as soon as they arrive. Installation is straightforward, and you or a handyman you hire can begin installing the cabinets as soon as they arrive without having to take the time to assemble them.

The primary disadvantage of cabinets that are shipped already assembled is that the cost is higher. Manufacturers have to charge for the labor of putting the cabinets together, but that is actually a nominal cost compared the cost of shipping. Since assembled cabinets cannot ship in flat boxes they take up much more space in a shipping container, so the shipping costs are significantly higher than the costs for RTA cabinets.
Another disadvantage of assembled bathroom cabinets and kitchen cabinets are that it generally takes from three weeks to three months longer to get those cabinets than it does to get RTA cabinets. So if you are under time pressures, this can be an important consideration.
There are advantages and disadvantages to both RTA and assembled cabinets. Weighing choices between cost, speed, and personal labor will allow you to make the right choice for your own new kitchen.
