Brief History of Ready to Assemble Goods

Ready to assemble cabinets are becoming increasingly popular throughout the country. These cabinets are shipped to the consumer so that when the consumer opens the package, they then put together the cabinet themselves. These cabinets come in the wake of the success of RTA (ready to assemble) furniture items that are currently sold at stores like IKEA. The convenience of being able to pull the furniture out of the packaging and have instructions telling you exactly how to put everything together is very convenient. RTA products have made it convenient for the seller to mass produce products that can shipped directly to the consumer and then put together in their home.


Assemble GoodsReady to assemble furniture has been around since the 1940’s and with the ability to mass produce this type of furniture, homes can go from completely bare to furnished in a couple weeks. This efficiency that a house can be furnished makes it a lot easier for the homeowner as they do not need to wait months to completely furnish their house. The process that the homeowner can now take only has a few steps compared to many if they were purchasing already assembled furniture. Homeowners can visit ikea show rooms that have sets of furniture that they may want to purchase. They choose furniture that is going to fill each of their rooms in the house and even their patio area. They submit the order with ikea or a similar company and the company will then ship boxes to the house with the RTA furnishing ready to be assembled.

A negative effect of the ready to assemble furniture that is not considered very often by homeowners is that the assembly of the furniture is very time consuming and can even become frustrating at times. Many times I would be trying to put together a bookshelf or something similar in my home and I would get so frustrated I would have to take a break before trying again. There are countless stories of couples getting into heated arguments over a piece of furniture that they bought at ikea. Although some of the stories are humorous, the stress that some of the RTA furniture can cause is very real and should not be taken lightly.Ready to assemble furniture
