There are two main types of cabinets on the market, RTA and Custom made. Both of them can create excellent kitchens, but there are some differences between them.
RTA means ready to assemble. These cabinets are already made and stored in warehouses. They are flat packed and easy to ship. They come in variety of sizes to make sure kitchen designers will have all the sizes they need to create a perfect kitchen.
Compared to custom cabinets, the lead time for RTA cabinets is much faster. Kitchen & Bath Gallery typically can ship the order in one business day from the warehouse, and kitchen will be ready to install in one week so the project can be completed in a timely matter.
Custom cabinets are made to specific sizes to achieve a more complicated kitchen scenario. Also, custom cabinets may have additional accessories like custom built-in fridge and dishwasher panels. Most common accessories include pull out garbage bins, spice racks, wine racks, etc.. which are available in both custom and RTA cabinets.
In terms of price, RTA cabinets are much less expensive than custom cabinets, typically are about half the cost due to lower labour costs for manufacturing. Custom cabinets require more labour to create those specific cabinets, and spend a lot of more time to setting up the machines. The extra labour for custom cabinets increases the price significantly. Also, in the installation and shipping process, if the cabinets get damaged, getting a new one from the warehouse is easier and cheaper than creating a new one again.
Custom cabinets have different door styles, and materials for customer to pick from. Kitchen & Bath Gallery usually stocks 8 to 12 popular colours and styles to fit most clients’ needs.
In order to maintain the highest quality possible, Kitchen & Bath Gallery only uses plywood for box construction, and solid wood doors. Heavy duty soft close door and drawer hardware are standard and come with lifetime Warranty.
Overall, both RTA and custom cabinets could be excellent choices depending on the customer’s time and budget. RTA cabinets are faster and easier to finish the projects with high quality material in a budget friendly manner.
As a professional kitchen cabinets store, Kitchen & Bath Gallery provides free design, assembly, and professional installation service.
