1. How can we dismantle our kitchen without damaging it?
There is certainly an art that our team of professional fitters have. The main issue when dismantling a kitchen is to remove the worktops undamaged. This is best done by starting off with a lot of manpower – a large piece of granite can need 4 or 5 people to lift. The next step is to work on the joins and silicone as this is the key before trying to gently remove the tops. For more dismantling tips and tricks, check out our blog post on kitchen removal.
2. Is it OK for me to keep some of the appliances ?
Yes, it is absolutely fine to keep appliances, but we do suggest that if hobs/sinks are cut into the worktops, it is a good idea to include them when possible.
3. How will it fit in someone else’s home ?
Once you lift the worktops off a kitchen, each unit is an individual carcass, so it is a bit like a jigsaw puzzle where you can easily reconfigure the units to accommodate your space. We always say buy a little larger than you need, and that way you have a few extra units to play with.
4. Why would anyone want to buy my used kitchen?
You’ll be surprised by how many used kitchens we sell. Lot’s of people love to recycle and up-cycle old kitchens by repainting it, adding new worktops or changing the handles – making it look brand new again.
