Is your kitchen in need of a makeover, but you just haven’t got the bank balance for it? There are ways to get a brand new kitchen without spending a fortune; you just have to be slightly creative.
Buy an Ex-Display Kitchen
Have you got your eye on a swanky showroom kitchen? Sleek and glossy, these kitchens can be a little bit expensive, but they don’t have to be. You can get a designer showroom kitchen for a heavy discount when you buy an ex-display kitchen. An ex-display kitchen is a showroom kitchen which must be sold to make way for new stock – as a result, they are usually discounted. You can buy an ex-display kitchen from a trusted re-seller, such as Used Kitchen Exchange, who exclusively partner with showrooms to sell their ex-display kitchens. The kitchens are stunning, and often include appliances and accessories to save you even more money.
Buy a Used Kitchen
If an ex-display kitchen seems out of reach, why not try a used kitchen? So often, kitchens are unnecessarily sent to landfill because they are not to a homeowner’s taste, when they could be given a new lease of life somewhere else. Buying a used kitchen reduces your carbon footprint, so you’re doing great things for the Earth as well as your bank balance. Used kitchens are available in many different styles, whether you prefer a contemporary aesthetic or something more traditional. However, it’s important to make sure you buy your used kitchen from somewhere reputable, i.e. a company such as Used Kitchen Exchange. They will take measurements of the kitchen so that you can check the size, and you can arrange to view the kitchen before you buy. You can make them a sensible offer to ensure your budget is not over stretched – leaving you with more money for accessories and appliances.
Change What You Have
Even the tightest budgets can stretch to a few home improvements, and you’ll be amazed at the difference it can make. If your units are looking a bit tired, perk them up a bit with a lick of paint, and swap the handles for something more contemporary, if that’s your style. You can even swap your worktops for something more stylish. Investing in lighting is another thing that can make a big difference to your kitchen area – try undercabinet lights if you struggle to see when you’re cooking.
No matter what your budget is, there’s always a way of getting a new kitchen. If you save a used kitchen from going to landfill, you’re doing your bit for the planet, so you’ll feel good and your kitchen will look good!
