    Where to Buy RTA Kitchen Cabinets Online

    If you’re reading this article, chances are that you are interested in finding out more about the process of buying ready-to-assemble, or RTA, cabinets on the Internet. With more and more homeowners deciding on this option every year, the process is only becoming easier and easier. It’s also becoming more and more cost effective, making buying kitchen cabinets online an increasingly attractive option for the budget-conscious homeowner who is equally as conscious of quality.

    Big Box Stores

    These megastores offer everything from cheese knives to office furniture, so you can bet they offer RTA cabinets, too. But buyer beware—there are quite a number of disadvantages to making big purchases like kitchen cabinets from big box stores, even the ones that specialize in home improvement such as Lowe’s and Home Depot. Their selection usually isn’t very comprehensive, the customer service doesn’t compare to what you get from a specialty retailer, and the prices often aren’t the most competitive on the market. Plus, they often have cheap imports that may offer immediate savings but will cost you in the long run when they need to be replaced or repaired.

    Online Cabinet Distributors

    Some Internet retailers specialize in RTA cabinets and can offer a wide selection of sizes and styles so you can come up with the ideal configuration for your kitchen. Since they focus on just one product, they’ll be able to answer all your questions about design, installation, and upkeep. Opting for a smaller store means that you’ll get more personalized service, too. Since you’re buying online, there’s no need to restrict your search for a cabinet retailer to your immediate area. Most companies will ship all across the continental United States, though shipping prices can be higher if the distance is considerable—be sure to find a cabinet company that offers flat shipping rates, like this one.

     

    How to Look for Quality Cabinets

    It’s important to know, as you start to explore what the world of online cabinet stores has to offer, what the markers of quality RTA cabinets are. Features to look for include a wood frame, doors, and drawer face and plywood box. Be sure to avoid products with inferior building materials such as particle board or MDF (medium density fiberboard). Also look for solid dovetail drawers, steel shelf pins, and a full 5-piece drawer front. These ensure the durability of your cabinets for decades to come. In addition, top-quality features include undermount drawer hardware, integrated premium soft close, finished cabinet sides, and a fully finished toe kick. Usually, the product description will provide you with the details. But if you want a quick comparison chart, click here and scroll down to see how different cabinet companies stack up.

    Assembly

    One of the main reasons that people hesitate about RTA cabinets is the prospect of assembling the cabinets themselves. However, some cabinet companies are providing innovative solutions to make the assembly process as transparent as possible. Nelson Cabinetry, for example, provides video tutorials to help demystify the assembly procedure, and there is even a whole gallery of tutorials on their website here. These videos were produced with the intention of letting you see in advance what to expect from the assembly and installation and also as a reference for you to use while putting your cabinets together.

    Reviews and Testimonials

    The savvy online customer knows how important reviews are, whether they’re shopping for items or checking out a restaurant review before deciding where to go for dinner. In the Internet community, this in a sense replaces the kind of “word of mouth” recommendations from friends, family, and acquaintances in a geographic community. There are frequently a few different approaches you can take to finding an RTA kitchen cabinets online review. Company websites will often have a testimonials page, like this one. It’s also always a good idea to check out Google reviews, which will even sometimes feature customer photographs. Many cabinet retailers will also have a Facebook page, which often also has reviews that have a more personalized touch because they are shown alongside a user’s profile picture.
