Q: What are RTA cabinets?

A: Ready-to-assemble furniture (RTA), also known as knock-down furniture (KD), flat pack furniture, or kit furniture, is a form of furniture that requires customer assembly. The separate components are packed for sale in cartons which also contain assembly instructions and hardware. The furniture is generally simple to assemble with basic tools such as screwdrivers. Ready-to-assemble furniture is popular with consumers who wish to save money by assembling the product themselves.

Q: How long does it take to assemble RTA cabinets?

A: The assembly time is different depending on the type and size of the individual cabinet you purchased. Regular wall cabinets can be assembled in 10-15 minutes and base cabinets in 15-20 minutes. Assembling larger or more complex RTA cabinets such as Lazy Susans, pantries, and oven cabinets can take longer than 20 minutes due to additional components and the overall complexity of the cabinet. Assembly times may also vary with your carpentry skills.

Q: How to assemble RTA cabinets?

The assembly process does not require you to possess the knowledge, skill, or experience of a professional contractor. However, you are more than welcome to hire an industry professional.
