What is RTA?
RTA or “Ready to Assemble”, is a term used often in the cabinet industry. RTA kitchen cabinets are un-assembled cabinets that are transported by freight to the buyer’s chosen delivery location. RTA Kitchen cabinets arrive “flat pack” ready for the customer or builder to assemble and install them. The opposite of RTA is, of course, assembled cabinets or custom cabinets. Ordering cabinets pre-assembled can be useful to many customers who are new to major remodels, however, we know the biggest factor in a project this size is cost. Depending on your level of expertise with cabinet assembly, and the helpful resources we offer, you can determine which route is right for you.

But, designing the kitchen of your dreams does not have to be restricted by the size or shape of the space you are working with.

Though, kitchen sizing is going to differ according to the area you live in, this standard for the average kitchen in 2016 can be useful when planning your own remodel.
