Kitchen cabinet install


I'm planning on installing these cabinets:



I plan on going for a similar look, with differing cabinet heights and crown on top of the cabinets.

In figuring out my game plan of how to do this, I can only come up with one option to make the crown of the shorter cabinets hit the sides of the taller cabinets, and that is to use blocking to bring the taller cabinets out into the room a few inches. Is this the normal way of making this work?

All of the wall cabinets are a standard 12" depth.

No it is not.
The "normal" way of doing it is to use cabinets of different depths just as shown in the picture. Why can't you do that?

Thats what I thought, but all of their wall cabinets are 12" deep. Looks like I'll have to talk to the manufacturer.

All of whose cabinets are 12" deep?

The manufacturer/supplier that I borrowed the picture (and idea) from.

They apparently show the picture of the product I'm interested in with varying wall cabinet depths, but do not offer anything other than 12" deep cabinets for sale. They're just cheap RTA cabinets, though they are solid wood/plywood, so I won't be able to get anything custom made.

rtacabinethub.com is the seller. I'm unsure if they make their own (doubt it), or if they're a retailer of no name chinese made cabinets (most likely). I don't think they are a retailer of one of the big name RTAs like Conestoga.

Why buy RTA? You can probably get local ready mades for around the same price. No?

I can get in but the page won't scroll. I'd like to know where those photos are comming from. The Sienna Rope photo looks amazingly like one of my tile installations. I can assure you their cabinets were not used on the job I'm thinking of. I'd be careful with this outfit. I need to look into that situation.

Well, figure around $3500 including tax and delivery for about 22lf of wall and base cabinets, crown, and a couple glass doors.

I haven't priced it, but I don't think I can come close locally. Maybe someone with more experience can chime in.

I agree "knock down" cabinets are never any cheaper than prebuilts when you get right down to it. How do you make a claim buying something like that from the Internet?

Shoot: make your own cabinets and then you don't hav eot fuss with manufacturer's advise, issues, problems, communications - and you save lots of money.



No - I'm serious, don't laugh.

Odds are, however, that the cabinets that are forward are hung by french-cleat which will add 1.5" or more - and the cabinets that aren't forward are likely attached flus hto the wall
