Choosing Kitchen Cabinets – Stock, RTA or Custom

Choosing Kitchen Cabinets – Stock, RTA or Custom

When choosing kitchen cabinets for your Dallas remodeling project you have three primary choices; stock, RTA (ready to assemble), and custom cabinets.

Stock cabinets are a point of sale purchase; you can walk into any big box home store such as Home Depot and walk out with your cabinets. You won’t find much in the way of design choices, and you must be comfortable with the installation process of stock cabinets.

RTA cabinets afford a few more choices in style and configuration. Ikea offers RTA cabinetry, however, if ordering online you will be responsible for the installation, assembly, design, and all the measurements. While design shows on HGTV can make it look easy, this can often be a headache and typically not the best quality.

Custom cabinets are higher quality; offer a great choice of styles, and cabinet configurations. Custom cabinets are the go to choice for designers, as well as local remodeling firms. These cabinets are not custom as much as they are customizable for your design needs; the range of selections will provide high style for your next project.

In our experience at HHI, we’ve found that custom kitchen cabinets are the most affordable option in the long run. While up-front costs may be higher, the installation fees are significantly lower and the cabinets hold their value for a much longer period of time. While RTA may make sense in other rooms (bathrooms for example) we recommend sticking to custom in the kitchen.
