14 Feb Tips For Installing Your RTA Cabinets
We believe that just about anyone can install their own Ready To Assemble (RTA) kitchen or bathroom cabinets. With the instructions we include and the support we provide, we’re confident you can handle the task. Of course, you will have to dedicate some time and effort into the project. In addition, it’s best to do a little research to make sure you’re taking the best route when installing your new cabinets.
First off, let’s establish why it’s so important to make sure your RTA cabinets are installed correctly. The first reason of course is safety. If cabinets aren’t secured properly or aren’t hung right, they can pose a safety hazard. We want to make sure your kitchen or bathroom cabinets are properly installed to avoid any sort of potential harm to you or your family. The second reason is aesthetics. You just bought beautiful RTA cabinets to improve the look of your kitchen or bathroom. Don’t ruin them by hanging them crooked or putting on hardware incorrectly.
We want your cabinets to look amazing, and that’s why we’re here to help every step of the way. Here are a few tips to make the most of installing your RTA cabinets:
Double check your measurements. Before even purchasing your cabinets, make sure your measurements are exact. We custom ship your cabinets based on the measurements you send us, so your cabinets will only fit and function properly if the measurements are exact. Use our handy measuring guide for help on finding the right measurements for your bathroom or kitchen.
Find the studs. Our cabinets are high quality and really solid, which also means they aren’t very lightweight. It’s important to find the studs in your kitchen or bathroom to make sure you’re attaching the cabinets to a stable anchor in the wall (like a stud). Drywall isn’t going to hold up down the road, especially when you load up your cabinets with your fanciest china.
Know how the Cam lock system works. Our RTA cabinets use a cam lock system to attach the cabinet pieces together. This is a proven system that holds the wooden cabinets together. The cam locks have two parts, the post and the locking head. Make sure to familiarize yourself with this system to properly secure your cabinets. Find more info about the cam lock system on our website.
