Ready to assemble furniture (popularly known as RTA on knock down furniture) are furniture which the customer buys furniture parts and assembles them personally. RTA furniture is packaged in a kit where furniture pieces can be packaged in either one or multiple boxes. Most companies, however, prefer to package in one box in order to cut costs, especially when the items are being shipped to customers. One type of furniture that comes in the ready-to-assemble format is the kitchen cabinet or the pantry. The pantry is very important furniture in any kitchen and buying a ready to assemble cabinet is a step in the right direction. Other than giving you a sense of accomplishment after assembling the pantry, a ready to assemble cabinet has other advantages:
Benefits to the consumer
There are many benefits to a buyer of RTA cabinets. For instance, one can buy a custom made cabinet specifically for his or her kitchen. This is done by measuring the space available for a cabinet in your kitchen then ordering the specific measurements. Therefore, a RTA cabinet can come in handy if you have a small kitchen with little space for furniture. A consumer also saves a lot of money on a cabinet since there are no delivery costs incurred, Just a box of components and you are ready to go. It is also very simple and a lot of fun to assemble a cabinet.
Benefits to the seller
The seller of the furniture also stands to benefit from the sale of RTA cabinets. This mostly comes down to the lowered costs incurred. Furniture that is already assembled is bulky to deliver to customers. Assembled furniture also takes up more storage space in the store’s storage. Another factor is that an RTA cabinet is that it takes far less money to produce hence the seller buys it at a lower price. So selling a ready-to-assemble cabinet is very beneficial to the vendor as it saves him a lot of money.
