Save Money And The Environment With Used Kitchen Exchange


As you know I’m a big fan of upcycled and regenerated products. I hate wasting nice things – just because I can’t make a use of them anymore, they shouldn’t be just thrown away. From clothes to furniture, so many of our unwanted items can be repurposed or upcycled, which would otherwise end up in landfill. As an ethical buyer, I prefere to spend my money on items which are environmentally friendly like recycled or upcycled products. Nowadays, it’s not only possible, but there are lots of choices out there to do so. You can buy and sell second hand furniture or electronics quite easily. It saves you money too. And now, it is possible to purchase even your kitchen ethically. Even better, sell yours!

Save money and the environment!

Used Kitchen Exchange is a multi-award winning family business selling and buying quality used kitchen units (appliances too) as well as ex-display items. For the fraction of the original price. When you move house and you don’t like the kitchen, or you want an extension, or you just fancy a new design, buying something brand new can be really expensive. Taking a loan for a new kitchen? No, thanks, if it’s possible, let’s do it without that.


How does it work?

Around the country, there’s a multitude of beautiful kitchens which are still in great condition (some may have been never used!) that are no longer wanted. Such kitchens from homes and from showrooms are usually taken by builders, or disposed on to landfill, which can be costly for the owners and can damage the environment. Most kitchens are skipped unnecessarily, rather than regenerated. Used Kitchen Exchange specialises in re-selling these kitchens. With their team of kitchen specialists, all the kitchens they sell are surveyed and measured so it is easy to work out if it will fit your space. This way they ensure that you’ll receive a quality, bespoke kitchen for a lot cheaper than purchasing a new one. They also ensure the kitchens are professionally removed, and will deliver if required, therefore this is much less risky than buying from other generic on-line sales sites.


It’s an ethical choice.

By buying a used kitchen or en ex-display item you make an eco-friendly purchase. Furthermore, if you think, that your current kitchen worth something, why not trade that in? No purchase necessary to do that. Sell your kitchen to put money towards your new kitchen.

This is such a good idea! Just recommended to a friend who desperately wants to re-do their kitchen.

Our kitchen was fitted second hand six years ago – it saved us a lot of money.

What a brilliant way of ‘recycling’ kitchens.What a shame that so many good kitchens go to waste, it’s often the first thing people want to do to a new home, this idea sounds fab x

Meghan September 18, 2017 - 9:25 pm

This is such a great idea! I’ll be keeping this in mind when we buy our forever home!

What a brilliant idea and it makes total,sense. Everyone’s tastes are different and if you buy a new home and don’t like the kitchen, even if it’s new, you’ll probably want to change it but find it hard to justify. This provides the perfect solution.

Absolutely! One of the best ideas I met lately and it’s so obvious, isn’t it?

We’re renting out house and I’m pretty sure the kitchen is the original kitchen from the 80s. It’s so ugly.
I wouldn’t want to buy a brand new kitchen for ethical reasons and because this isn’t our own house. The Used Kitchen Exchange sounds brilliant. What a great idea. I’m going to go and check them out now.

Reply September 23, 2017 - 9:18 pm

Thanks Lu. I believe it’s a fantastic idea.

Becky September 24, 2017 - 7:12 am

I think this is a brilliant way to get a kitchen that you want without paying crazy prices! I have lots of upcycled things around our house and we’ll be looking to redo our kitchen soon so I’ll definitely check this out when we do.
