How To Get A Luxury Kitchen For Less

Advertisement Feature in Collaboration with Used Kitchen Exchange:

Let’s face it, we all dream of buying a hand-built designer kitchen just like the ones featured in glossy magazines. How many of us have drooled over luxurious finishes, top of the range appliances, and quality worktops only to end up shopping in a high street store? But what if you could have a designer kitchen within your budget, with great service, that was quick and easy to install, and also helped you do your bit for the planet?

Introducing Used Kitchen Exchange

Used Kitchen Exchange could be the answer to all of your prayers. They work in a similar way to an estate agent – advertising kitchens for sale on behalf of their sellers. And there is something for all budgets, with complete kitchens starting from £1500, to designer kitchens at drastically reduced prices. Approved Used and Ex-display kitchens are both available, and UKE will broker the deal between homeowners and kitchen showrooms anywhere in the UK.

Approved Used Kitchens

The term ‘Approved Used’ is a seal of approval. Unlike other second-hand online sales sites, Used Kitchen Exchange make it as easy and risk-free as possible to buy a pre-owned kitchen. Each used kitchen they sell is inspected in person by a member of the team. They do not accept a kitchen if it doesn’t meet their stringent criteria – in fact, they reject more kitchens than they accept.

Each approved used kitchen is listed on their site with an honest reflection of the kitchen’s condition at the time of the marketing survey. Where possible, they will let you know the original fit price, age and any minor wear or damage (normally commensurate with age) that has been noted. This can be found on each approved used kitchen listing. Plus they are graded: very good, good or fair (again, commensurate with age) – they will never claim a kitchen is in excellent condition because, by nature, it has been pre-installed and of course used.

Ex-Display Kitchens

Used Kitchen Exchange advertise Ex Display kitchens on behalf of premier showrooms across the UK. In most cases they will have visited the showroom to take photographs, however it is the showroom who provide the product details and measurements. This means it is also the showrooms responsibility to note any wear and tear, or damage.

FAQ’s

I want to buy a kitchen, but how do I know it will fit?
Most kitchen units are built to standard modular sizes, each of the listings provide a full breakdown of all the unit sizes in addition to the approximate overall current dimensions – helping you to make an informed decision.

In the case of a UKE Approved Used Kitchen, it’s always suggested you have a layout drawn up for your new kitchen and use that as a template. Plus you should aim to purchase a used kitchen 10% to 20% larger than you need to give you a variety of layout options. Then using the list of cabinets on the sales listing, you can move the units into the places that fit with your kitchen plan. There are many readily available design packages online that are easy to use for this and will help you choose your preferred layout.

Let your creativity flow! If you want an island, make your own using any leftover units. To create the perfect island space – the only purchases you would need to make are end panels, a back panel and worktop. Why stop there? Design a matching utility room or even an organised storage area in your garage – the only limit is your imagination.

Can I view a kitchen before I buy?
In almost every case it’s possible to arrange a viewing for you. With an approved used kitchen, this will be at the home of the seller. If a kitchen has already been removed and is in storage, this information will be in the description of the kitchen’s listing.

Is there a collection and delivery service?
Yes. When installing a new kitchen, it is often delivered to the property in stages: the cabinets will arrive first, then the appliances and finally, the worktops. An approved used kitchen is different, it will be delivered in its entirety. The in-house team are specialists in collecting and delivering a used kitchen. They provide the correct insurance, appropriate lifting equipment and specialist vans at the correct height, weight tolerance and racking to transport your kitchen and worktops safely.
