ADRIAN, Mich. -  Lily Ann Cabinets — one of the nation's largest factory-direct distributors of wholesale cabinets, RTA kitchen cabinets, and RTA bathroom cabinets — says eight new styles have been added to its line of ready-to-assemble (RTA) cabinetry.
"Our main goal at Lily Ann is to provide our customers with stylish, affordable, impeccably made cabinets," said owner Bill Decker. "By adding these striking new styles to our line of kitchen and bath cabinetry, we feel poised to provide exciting remodeling solutions to both our existing customer base and to whole new clientele."  
Decker says these new styles will be constructed through the same rigorous, industry-leading process through which Lily Ann makes all its cabinets. That process relies on the usage of the highest-quality birch and North American maple - Lily Ann uses only real wood in the construction of its cabinetry, foregoing particleboard and other "filler" components that some RTA cabinet retailers are known for. Each cabinet Lily Ann makes goes through an intensive, 12-step staining method that protects the wood from dings and scratches common to cabinets that aren't stained as thoroughly.
The eight new styles are: Dove Shaker, Shaker Antique White, Shaker Grey, Sonoma Mocha, Sonoma Spice, Sonoma White, Steely Grey, and Tahoe White.
"White cabinets are a consistent bestseller for us, as they provide a classic look that can be easily integrated into a variety of kitchen and bathroom decors," Decker says. "That's why we've added three new styles of white cabinetry while also expanding upon our 'warmer' offerings with the Sonoma Mocha and Sonoma Spice lines. We're also proud to announce the Dove Shaker, Shaker Grey, and Steely Grey lines as our first grey cabinet styles. All three make excellent choices for homeowners looking for a cabinet with impeccable design and subtle, stylish coloring."
Decker says the biggest selling point of Lily Ann's RTA cabinets, however, is the ease with which they're assembled. Every RTA cabinet Lily Ann offers features what Decker calls "dovetail" assembly, (actually dado joints) which allows their components to join like puzzle pieces in a simple process that requires nothing more than a small amount of time and a handful of household tools. Furthermore, none of the models require more than two clips to hold them together, neither of which are visible once the assembly is complete. 
 "Unlike most cabinet stores online that also sell RTA cabinets, we manufacture the cabinetry we sell," says the company. "We've developed a proprietary manufacturing process," the company says. "Most ready-to-assemble cabinets are held together using several large metal L-brackets or big plastic clips, whereas our cabinets are designed to interlock." 
Lily Ann Cabinets is a family-owned company founded in 2004.
