What are RTA Kitchen Cabinets

Ready-to-assemble kitchen cabinets (RTA), also known as knock-down kitchens(KD), flat pack cabinets, is a form of  kitchen cabinets that requires customer assembly.

The separate components are packed in cartons which also contain assembly instructions or videos available on Youtube.

The cabinets are generally simple to assemble with basic tools such as screwdrivers, staplers, adhesive etc.

Ready-to-assemble kitchen cabinets are popular with consumers who wish to save money by assembling the product themselves.

Producers and merchants benefit from selling ready-to-assemble furniture because cabinets are bulky once assembled, and thus more expensive to store and to deliver.

Since the assembly work is done by the consumer instead of by the manufacturer, its price is lower.

Current quality of RTA kitchens are inline with some of the most popular name brand kitchens sold at Big Box Stores at a fraction of their price.

Our RTA cabinets are all wood construction meaning, cabinet boxes are made of plywood. Framed cabinets come with solid wood face frames. Doors are either all wood or a hybrid mix of wood and MDF, this type of door is very stable for painted doors. The more modern Frameless cabinets do not have a frame and are also available with the newer metal Tandum drawer system.

RTA cabinets come in the same wood species as pre assembled or custom kitchens. Available in maple, birch, rift cut oak, oak, MDF, thermofoil, acrylic and laquer. The selection is huge!

Please remember also offer RTA kitchen cabinets assembled, for a small fee the assembly is done at the manufacturer's warehouse.
