Second hand kitchens: How to buy good quality, cheap kitchen units and worktops

Buying a kitchen is never a cheap project, but by shopping for second-hand cabinets and worktops it can be considerably cheaper than you’d think. In some cases buying a second hand kitchen can offer savings of up to 70 per cent off RRP, and we’re talking big branded kitchens too.

Homeowners are often happy to buy second hand furniture, but perhaps not so sold on buying a used kitchen? The main concern, and one which we hope to overcome is the misconception that a second hand kitchen means it’s past its best. Companies such as The Used Kitchen Company and the Used Kitchen Exchange find new homes for used kitchens, from both individual homes and ex-display kitchens from showrooms.

Craggan Flax fabric by Camira

Dezeen Showroom: UK textile manufacturer Camira has launched a sustainable fabric finish called Craggan Flax that is made from thickly woven wool and flax for a highly textured finish.

Craggan Flax will replace Camira‘s classic Craggan material, which was made purely from wool and has since been phased out.

The addition of flax fibres offers a more textured, natural-looking finish to the fabric and illustrates the company’s commitment to developing textiles from sustainable materials.

“Deeply textured and thickly woven, this eco-friendly fabric retains the raw appeal of its natural composition whilst possessing the contemporary aesthetic and stylised texture of a chunky weave,” Camira explained.
