When it comes to remodeling on a budget, most homeowners automatically think of the DIY kitchen cabinets approach. It is important to note that this method is cost efficient and a good idea for those that already have the necessary tools for the job, as they only need to invest in the materials and purchase the blue prints. In general, building the classic kitchen fixtures implies constructing base and upper cabinets that are about thirty inches high. The principle behind this is that you have sufficient space between the two pieces of furniture and you can make the best out of the available space to the ceiling.
Building cabinets from scratch might seem like a breeze, but as an incredibly precise science it can be very easy to turn your project into a bunch of scraps of wood and hinges. The time that it takes to design and build a cabinet out of nothing can take a large chunk out of your life, and even then there’s no guarantee that it will come together right.
If you are not that good with tools, or if you do not have too a lot of free time on your hands, a more feasible alternative of getting new kitchen cabinets on a budget is to go for the RTA cabinets. The primary benefit the ready to assembly cabinets have over the ones built out of scratch is that you receive all the tools needed for the task in the package.
This is perhaps the best thing about the RTA cabinet system, you don’t need to worry about if you’ve cut the lumber right, if you have the right tools, or even if you’ve designed the cabinet correctly. In addition, when choosing an RTA kit, homeowners have the freedom to customize the cabinets exactly as they wish. From this point of view, even though you receive all the parts already cut to appropriate measures, the RTA cabinets are actually built by you.
All the technical carpentry has been done for you ahead of time, leaving you free to do what you do best: Figuring out where the cabinets would look best in your home.
