RTA Kitchen Cabinets and Vanities

I am working with a new cabinet supplier. They sell RTA (ready to assemble) cabinets for the kitchen and bath. I ordered a sample kitchen cabinet and was very pleased with the style and quality. If you are familiar with RTA cabinets, you will know what to expect. Plywood sides and solid wood drawer boxes are the norm. One feature that this supplier has is that the base cabinets come with a full plywood back. Not all RTA cabinets offer that. It adds a lot in terms of stability and can speed your job since you don’t have to worry about the wall behind the cabinet.

If you are in the Western New York area, you will be happy to hear that these are coming from Pennsylvania and it only takes 3-5 days to arrive.

I will post more information once the full kitchen cabinet order arrives. Take a look at the site. RTA Cabinet Store

Thanks for the comment Teresa. You are right about the factors that make RTA cabinets desirable. I think for most, price is the key component. Even IKEA has some terrific cabinets. IKEA cabinets are RTA. You can get a very custom look depending on the doors selected. I just used some IKEA RTA’s for a laundry room and was able to purchase 5 cabinets for less than $300! 30″ sink base, 24″ base with drawer, 18″ base, 18″ wall, 24″ double door wall.

Your price goes up considerable for IKEA cabinets that have a front other than the flat melamine, but that was what the laundry called for anyway.
