Are you considering buying a second hand kitchen but not sure where to start? This month our CEO and founder Rob Cole sat down with Georgina Townshend, acting editor of Kitchens, Bedrooms and Bathrooms magazine and Helen Lord, Founder and Director of the Used Kitchen Exchange to record a podcast on exactly that.
The three discuss how to buy a second hand kitchen and what’s involved during the process. They also discuss the pros and cons of buying a used kitchen, and why it’s a more environmentally-friendly option than buying new.
Plus, they discuss what it really means to have a sustainable kitchen design.
Background behind the guests and host
The Used Kitchen Exchange sell second-hand and ex-display kitchens to reduce the number of kitchens going to landfill.
Working in a similar way to estate agents, UKE advertises kitchens on behalf of homeowners to support the second hand kitchen market.
It’s worth noting that they were awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development this year.
Kitchens, Bedrooms and Bathrooms is a consumer magazine that is great for giving advice for planning new spaces. If you are planning a renovation soon be sure to pick up a copy!
