Why Choose Ready-to-Assemble Cabinets?

The kitchen is often the center hub of a home. All of the cooking and most of the eating is done there, entertaining is done there, and family time collects there. That’s why you never want your kitchen to be out of date. If you’re looking to spruce up your kitchen what better way than updating the cabinets? Why consider Ready-to-Assemble (RTA) cabinets? You can find what you want at the price you need. Here are some factors to consider when talking about RTA cabinets.

Value

Why not buy custom-built cabinets? Custom-built cabinets are a beautiful luxury for any kitchen, but they come with a hefty price tag. With custom cabinets you often have to wait a long time from ordering before you receive them on top of the higher prices. You can get the same beauty from RTA cabinets at a fraction of the cost. RTA cabinets are perfect for any renovation on a budget.

Options

Not only are RTA cabinets reasonably priced but you also get tons of options. Because you can order them you don’t have to stick to the already assembled cabinets that stores may carry in a limited selection. When you walk into a home improvement store they will have cabinets you can pick out and take home right away, but you will be extremely limited on choices. With our huge selection of cabinets you will easily find what fits you and your home best.

DIY Friendly

If you are a Do-It-Yourself type then you will love RTA cabinets! RTA cabinets are easy to assemble yourself (but that doesn’t stop you from hiring a professional if that’s what you prefer). They come to your door and offer easy assembly and installation. If you are looking to update your kitchen on a budget this is the solution for you, especially if you love a project. We make it easy and simple for you to do it all yourself. We even have videos to help you along!

Style

With our selection you will have no trouble finding what fits you style. Here are some of our favorites…

Looking for a vintage feel? We love these choices:

Spring Cleaning Kitchen Cabinets

Spring is coming and that can mean only one thing: Spring cleaning! The place to start is with your kitchen. The kitchen is the hub of any home but it can also be the messiest. It is where we cook, bake, and eat. This is where we congregate as families and where we talk with friends over coffee. It seems like the perfect place to start, especially the cabinets.

Kitchen cabinets tend to get a little greasy from all of the cooking and activity. To give your cabinets that old shine try using oil. Mineral oil or even just vegetable oil takes the grease off of your cabinet surfaces but will also give them a beautiful sheen. But it’s not just the outside that matters.

Organization is the perfect way to keep away the clutter and mess. Among our products you will find any organization tool you might need. Whether your pots and pans are a clanking mess or your plastic ware are a cluttered avalanche every time you open the cabinet door, we can help. You can make next year’s spring cleaning easier by staying organized all year long. After a long, hard winter treat your home to a refresh with these helpful organization products and many more found at Custom Service Hardware.

 

Use our corner lazy Susan to keep things like plastic ware containers in their place. Put lids on one shelf and stack the bins on another.

Keep your spices or smaller kitchenware within easy reach with our pull out base organizer.
