What to Tell your Husband to get new Cabinets

1. Tell your husband: If you ever want to sell your house, potential buyers will see your kitchen as one of the most important rooms in your home. If the kitchen is a dream, then selling your home would be one too. That means your house would have a better chance of selling quickly instead of lingering on the market.

2. Tell your husband: Sometimes, the kitchen is the first room people see depending on the layout. When it is beautiful, you can make a great first impression with the in-laws. Custom cabinets do add a richness to your home.

3. Tell your husband: Cooking can be easier and more fun when you have an organized kitchen. It just may make you want to stay home and start saving money on all those restaurant nights out.

4. Tell your husband: If you are expected to do a lot of entertaining, a stunning kitchen will beautify the room and will give you the motivation you need.

5. Tell your husband: You will locate a company that is affordable and who will take the time to discuss ideas as well as pricing.

6. Tell your husband: New kitchen cupboards will widen your storage space and keep you organized with storage solutions that fit your style.

7. Tell your husband: He won’t have to spend any Saturdays doing any maintenance on the old cupboards.

8. Tell your husband: Everything in your kitchen, pots, pans, appliances, supplies, foods, can all be found much more easily.

9. Tell your husband: The new cupboards will be much quieter upon completion of your new kitchen. If you get up earlier than your husband, you probably always try to be quiet why preparing your breakfast. The new cupboards will help with that so as not to disturb his sleep.

When to go RTA, or have a Dealer help you?

Many people are familiar with IKEA Furniture and similar “assembly required” home furnishing but, not everyone has heard of the RTA Kitchen and Bath Cabinetry. RTA Cabinets have been gaining popularity over the last few years mainly because they offer the three product attributes that today’s savvy consumer is looking for….price, quality and service.

  • Good: Prices of the rta cabinets are typically less than half of comparable domestic manufactured cabinets.
  • Good: Quality can be considered at the upper end of the scale with standards like plywood boxes (no particle board), solid wood face and door frames, premium finishes.
  • Good: You can expect short lead times when using rta cabinets. Rather than waiting for a local manufacturer to schedule your particular box configurations into their production schedules, the normal rta distributor will simply pull your pre-fabricated cabinets from the warehouse inventory and send the entire set directly to you via a LTL truck line so you can have cabinets in just a few days.
  • Good: Recent changes in the U.S. Import and Environmental Laws require thorough inspection and certification of the RTA Cabinets to insure safe and environmentally friendly products.
  • Bad: The most obvious draw back of the rta cabinets is that they require assembly. For maximum savings, most of our clients opt to assemble the cabinets themselves although most professional installers are glad to assemble. On average, it takes a screw driver and 10 to 15 minutes to assemble each cabinet.
  • Bad: Because rta cabinets are produced overseas and only warehoused locally, you may find limited offerings or restricted design-ability. Not every possible size, door profile or color will be available. Custom sizes or extra functionality will require quite a bit of carpentry work from the end user.
  • Ugly: The ugly part is that the domestic manufacturers are having trouble competing with these high quality but cheap cabinets. Many of the large manufacturers now buy components from the overseas fabricators but most of the custom cabinet makers are finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with this industry changing trend.

Overall, the rta cabinets are a growing trend simply because they give the kitchen remodel professional and the kitchen cabinet replacement DIYer a great deal. More cabinet for less money. Drastically cheaper, higher quality and much quicker than the home stores or your local cabinet shops. So if you’re looking for that dream kitchen, you should do yourself a favor and check out the RTA Cabinets.

The RTA Cabinet Mall offers a huge selection of discount cabinet door styles and colors as well as free custom layout assistance along with our years of experience to give you the perfect blend of function and beauty.
