According to the report, RTA furniture can be considered as a more cost effective alternative to fully assembled furniture. Due to the high labor and assembling cost, the price of an assembled piece of furniture is higher compared with an unassembled piece. Generally, a fully assembled furniture is priced about 20%-25% higher than its RTA counterpart. For instance, Kitchen Cabinet Kings' RTA Country Oak Classic cabinets are sold at around $1,175, while the pre-assembled version of the same furniture costs around $1,382.
Major vendors such as Home Depot Product Authority and Lowe's are putting in efforts to mass customize their furniture by making use of consumer interaction platforms. Customers can also order furniture in the colors and themes of their choice. Inter IKEA Systems, for instance, has come up with an assembly service, which allows consumers to add a personal touch to fittings through customization. This service enables customers to suggest modifications in the design of furniture bought by them. Players can further capitalize on this opportunity by basing their marketing communication on the customization potential and thus spur growth in sales.
Fully assembled furniture products are more expensive due to their high production costs, which are cumulative of high raw material, assembly, and labor costs. In addition, as fully assembled furniture products are bulkier, they also involve high shipping charges, which are passed on to customers.
