It is essential you understand the differences between ready to assemble kitchen cabinets and preassembled cabinets. Ready to assemble, or RTA kitchen cabinets, have to be put together prior to installing and mounting them in your home, while preassembled ones are ready for installation when they arrive. However, the amount you pay just for the convenience of not assembling your cabinets is often not worth it. For example, for a basic 10 by 10 kitchen, you could easily spend around $10,000 or more for preassembled cabinets, compared to around $2,500 for RTA cabinets.
What if I Can’t Put Together Ready to Assemble Kitchen Cabinets?
Even if you are not handy with the tools and equipment needed to put together ready to assemble kitchen cabinets, and you have to hire a contractor to do the work, you will still save money. It only takes around 20 to 30 minutes for an experienced contractor familiar with RTA cabinets to assemble a single cabinet. For instance, if you have 20 cabinets you want assembled, it should take a qualified contractor between 8 and 10 hours to complete the labor. If they charged $75 an hour for labor, and it took the full 10 hours, your labor expense is only $750 — still greatly less than paying $10,000 for preassembled cabinets.
