Buying a second hand kitchen makes sense for many reasons and yet it is surprising that this is still a route many people still don't consider taking.

From a money-saving perspective, second hand kitchens really do add up, allowing buyers to afford kitchens from top designers that their budgets may not otherwise have stretched to. In many cases, a used kitchen will come in at 50%-70% lower than the RRP.
