Now more than ever before, retailers are offering ready to assemble kitchen cabinets to their customers. Previously used only in multi-dwelling construction projects, these cabinets have now become a popular alternative for homeowners working with a budget. RTA cabinets have many benefits and one of the most important ones is cost. A typical custom kitchen can be 2-3 times more expensive than one using RTA kitchen cabinets.

RTA kitchen cabinets, also known as stock cabinets, are mass produced and are usually stored in a warehouse. While they typically come delivered flat packed, many online retailers are offering an option to have them assembled for a 15% up-charge.

It is very important that you pay attention to the quality of the RTA kitchen cabinets that you are buying. You want to make sure that the type of cabinet you are purchasing has solid plywood sides instead of cheaper MDF wood or particle board. This allows for a sturdier construction and a more solid installation. The face frame and doors should also be solid wood with cam-lock systems or metal brackets or clips, which create a more durable cabinet.

Unlike custom and semi-custom cabinets you are limited in choices of woods, styles and color. However, this does not mean that you won't have a wide variety of options to choose from. Most manufacturers carry oak, maple, cherry, birch and bamboo in a variety of color and styles such as a traditional raised panel or shaker.

Purchasing stock cabinets saves you time. These cabinets are usually readily available from the warehouse and can usually be shipped within a few days. This speeds up your remodeling time as any replacements can be dealt with quickly.
