Benefits of Ready-to-Assemble Kitchen Cabinets

Many people decide to purchase ready-made kitchen cabinets. When people think of getting cabinets, they may think about showrooms or major home outlets, yet many suppliers of ready-to-assemble cabinets exist.

Are you in the market for new kitchen cabinets? Consider some of the advantages of purchasing RTA kitchen cabinets:

Ready-to-assemble cabinets are no different in regards to standard sizes offered. There are different types of cabinets showcased in showrooms, and ready-made suppliers emulate the variety.

Some people may think that ready-made kitchen cabinets are not made as durable as showroom or large-chain supplier cabinets. This is not true. Some suppliers do sell cabinets made with particle board. These vendors should be avoided because particle board absorbs moisture, which makes the cabinets susceptible to decay. Most ready-made kitchen cabinet suppliers offer goods that are comparable those shown in large showrooms. The cabinets are made from quality hardware and engineered by skilled craftsmen.

The selection of ready-made cabinets does not leave the consumer wanting. You can choose amongst a variety of styles and colors. In addition, finishes and little touches such as knobs and pulls are assorted. There will be no problem matching the established décor of your kitchen or choosing something you will love.

One of the most alluring traits of ready-to-assemble kitchen cabinets is the economical pricing. Consumers are offered quality kitchen cabinets at lower prices because the cost of labor and installation is taken out of the equation. In addition, shipping costs are lower because the boxes are smaller since the cabinets are not yet assembled.

Furthermore, ready-to-assemble cabinets do not warrant the need of a master carpenter. The kitchen cabinets are simple to construct, making just about anyone a likely candidate for assembly. Only a few, basic tools are needed to construct the cabinets.

Question about matching furniture to hardwood flooring.


My husband and I ripped out our carpet and installed a beautiful oak hardwood floor. We’ve decided that our next project is going to be building an entertainment unit (wall) in our family room. My question is: should the entertainment unit match the floor exactly? The flooring is a medium oak stain called Gunstock. It’s almost like a warm caramel color. Does it look funny if the wood tones in a room are a little lighter or a little darker than the flooring? I hope this makes sense. I’m not into matchy-matchy stuff, but I don’t want overkill on one color.

Thanks for your help!


IMHO, no. Your new floor sounds nice. I would not build a unit that would match the floor. It would just blend to much together and not stand out. That unit is it’s own piece of furniture. Mixing and matching woods and colors is very nice.


I agree with Lisa, you need contrast between the two.

Same thing when you put wood floors in the kitchen. They always looks better with contrasting cabinets … otherwise it’s just a mass of the same.


I’m not into matchy-matchy stuff, but I don’t want overkill on one color.

ncmom, “Matchy” is out anyway. Back-in-the-day; if you had cherry something, you had to have cherry everything. No more.

We have oak hardwood throughout our house, the wood is a backdrop to anything you want to put in your house. I have a medium tone cherry entertainment unit in the family room that looks great, as well as some med-dark oak pieces, and some cream color throughout the house. Matching is not an issue - just go with what you like and it all seems to work.

Odd dimensions "I'm not normal!"

Question: What do I do if standard cabinet sizes don’t fit my space? I have a very old house, with cabinets that must have been made just for the space. My ceilings are only 70″ high, so if I use regular 30″ high wall cabinets, they will practically be sitting on the counter. Help!
