Buying or selling a used kitchen is a great ethical choice and makes financial sense too. Often kitchens are removed ahead of their time to make way for an extension or just because they are not to the owners’ taste. As most kitchens can easily be reconfigured into a new layout, re-sale is an obvious choice.

With our ‘UKE Expert Service’ both buyers and sellers can rest easy in the knowledge that we will help them every step of the way.

The UKE story

My husband and I founded the Used Kitchen Exchange after we purchased our new pre-owned kitchen from a lovely couple in Bolton. We had recently bought a house to renovate and it was turning into a real money pit! The budget was really tight, but I didn’t want to scrimp on quality. After many disappointing trips to ‘kitchen sales’, I searched the Internet in the hope of inspiration.

To my delight I found a stunning Clive Christian kitchen for sale. There were a few too many units, and the layout wasn’t quite right for our space, but I had a vision of how it could look so we went ahead and bought it for £5,000. When we went to collect it the couple showed us the original purchase receipt – it was nearly £100,000 new!

We had to discard the worktops as we wanted a different look, but we managed to get a really good price on our granite. Within a month, we had completed the kitchen and now it is a wonderful space for my family and I to enjoy.

Without buying a used kitchen, we would never have been able to afford this stunning result.

I became a convert. The satisfaction I felt was immense and I decided that if I could do it, so could other people. So Used Kitchen Exchange was born – a quality kitchen at a cheap price from a sustainable source… doesn’t that sound wonderful!

Kitchens that don’t cost the Earth…
