- During her visit, our photographer Rachel made the following notes about this kitchen:
- This is a lovely kitchen that has been well cared for and is in very good condition.
- Handle on pull out bin door shows signs of use and chopping block would benefit from oiling – see image.
~ Inspiration notes ~
? Do you want the opportunity to create your dream space? This is a large kitchen with lots of elements and plenty of options for reconfiguration. We’ve put together a few layout ideas for some reconfiguration inspiration:
The galley kitchen:
A traditional galley kitchen has one row of units, while a double galley kitchen has two parallel rows. This style of kitchen is perfect for narrow spaces, however, it will also work well for open plan living. Why not separate the living space by adding a long island or making a breakfast bar? Position one run against a wall and use the other run to separate the living space, then add an overhanging worktop to create a long breakfast bar area.
Perfect for: Narrow spaces and open plan living
The U – shaped kitchen
This is a very practical layout that provides plenty of workspace and easy access to all main elements of the kitchen. A U-shaped kitchen in an open-plan space is also another way you can integrate a breakfast bar.
Perfect for: Medium-sized spaces, open plan living.
The L – shaped kitchen
This style of kitchen is another practical and popular layout and is great for adding an open plan feel too small spaces. This kitchen could be re-configured into an L-shape by combining two cabinets to make a corner unit or creating a bespoke extra corner unit joining the two separate runs. Utilise the extra space by adding a dining table to an empty corner. Our Mark Wilkinson Etruscan kitchen features a U shaped sink area with units that are fitted to the bay window and might be reconfigured to create a curved breakfast bar like the middle picture below.
Perfect for: Making small spaces feel open and adding dining areas.
A large L shaped kitchen is a good option for creating a kitchen centered around an island. Extra cabinets can be combined to create an island or a contrasting freestanding island could be added for a contemporary look. Below is a kitchen that is currently featured on our site. Designer Anthony Mullan has combined a navy and gold shaker style kitchen with an ultra-modern kitchen island, which perfectly exemplifies the power of contrasting elements in a kitchen.
While these layouts can act as a guide, there’s no need to stick rigidly to a kitchen plan. This stunning kitchen below has combined elements from all layouts to create a diverse space:
Our Mark Wilkinson Etruscan kitchen is lovely as it is, but once reconfigured the lucky owner may wish to paint this quality kitchen in a color of their choice and switch the handles for an entirely new look. Remember to position those charming ‘Bread’ and ‘Biscuit’ feature drawers in prime view ???
Trusted Trader Removal- Used Kitchen Exchange offer a Which? Trusted Trader service for Kitchen Dismantle as part of their standard sellers package, however, a seller might opt to arrange the dismantle themselves. Our listing will let you know who will be dismantling the kitchen you have purchased. Our buyers do NOT pay for the dismantle of the kitchen they have purchased – this is included in the sales price paid.
Granite/Quartz/Marble – Whilst every attempt will be made to successfully remove stone worktops without damage, this is not always possible. Therefore, pieces of granite with ‘cut outs’ eg sinks, hobs, etc. cannot be guaranteed. Likewise stone back splashes, upstands and window sills are also not guaranteed. These pieces will be given to the buyer free of charge if successfully removed and are therefore not included in the overall sales price. Breakages are rare, but sometimes unavoidable, but most cases the worktop can be fixed with an epoxy adhesive by yourself or through a local granite Supplier.
Occasionally a kitchen may have a chimney breast and mantle. In most cases this is ‘faux’ and the mantle will sit on top of a solid piece of work-surface. However, sometimes the work-surface may be cut around the chimney breast, leaving a cut out on removal. It is normally possible for us to identify if this will be the case, however not in every case. Buyers must be aware of this and plan for this to avoid disappointment.
Corian – Corian is a specialist worktop. The beauty of Corian is all joins are invisible. When Corian is installed it comes into the property in pieces and the joins are ‘blended’ to become invisible. Once joined, it becomes 1 large piece. In order to remove and transport a Corian worktop it is normal to expect this to be cut – this is often necessary due to the sizes/shapes/weight of the pieces. During removal, the joiner will assess the best place to cut – to reinstall, a Corian expert will be required. It is worth noting that it is normally possible to ‘add’ to a Corian worktop if required.
Laminate worktops – Removal of a Laminate worktop will nearly always result in unrepairable damage to the laminate’s surface. Therefore, laminate worktops are always excluded from any sale.
Kitchen reconfiguration – Please consider that if the configuration of the kitchen is to be changed, end panels, kick boards/plinths, decorative trims etc may not re reusable because of their size, cut outs, fading, screw holes etc.
Painted Kitchens – Often painted kitchens are painted once installed, this means that during removal painted finishes may be chipped. It is reasonable to expect some touch up painting once your kitchen is re-installed.
Appliances – Whilst the listing above includes description of the appliances ,we strongly recommend that all appliances have an electrical and/or gas safety check, by a qualified electrical and/ or Gas Safe registered engineer as appropriate. Electrical goods need to be checked to confirm that the plug, socket or adapter supplied complies with the appropriate current regulations.
Cleaning – Please be aware that this kitchen is advertised as ‘Used’ – it is therefore reasonable to expect some additional cleaning and possibly some minor repairs when refitting.
Plastic Cabinet Legs – These are the unseen adjustable supports for cabinets, normally hidden by the kick-boards. Unfortunately, these can be broken during the removal process. These are easy and very inexpensive to replace. Readily available at B&Q or Screwfix.
