When it comes to RTA cabinets, most people naturally think of the kitchen first. This is the most common area where RTA cabinets are found in the home, both for design and practical elements.
At Knotty Alder Cabinets, though, we’re here to tell you that our wide range of cabinets has a far greater number of uses than this. Let’s look at several areas where RTA cabinets can be used outside their traditional kitchen formats.
In the Kitchen, But Not For the Kitchen
The first item here is a bit confusing to some – it’s a use of RTA cabinets in the kitchen but in a non-traditional way. Normally you see these cabinets connected to some part of kitchen function; we’re suggesting an alternative approach.
Consider using cabinets to add a bookshelf to the end of your kitchen island, for instance – it’s a great place to store cookbooks. You can also consider built-in seating options with accessible storage or even something super creative like a computer workstation in the kitchen.
Bathrooms, Laundry Rooms, Etc.
In many simple cases, RTA cabinets are used in mud rooms, laundry rooms, and bathrooms. In a mudroom, for instance, you can use cabinets in coordination with bench seating to help with everything from storage to kids putting on their boots. In addition, many bathroom vanities are in the same style as our kitchen cabinets, which makes mixing and matching easy in the bathroom.
Another idea that many people take advantage of in their homes: Use RTA cabinets to craft an entertainment center. You use the basic cabinets as the baseline, with a customized central area where the TV goes. In many cases, a little DIY know-how here can get you a fully customized entertainment center for far cheaper than you’d generally pay in an electronics or furniture store.
