Buying used kitchen cabinets can actually be more beneficial to you than trying to find a cheap set of new ones. Usually, when we think used, we think old, and that's not always the case. If you do a little research, you'll find that many times a set of "used" cabinets are in perfectly usable condition, and were only removed because of a remodeling project in progress.
Why You Should Consider Used Kitchen Cabinets
For the budget-conscious, you're going to want to consider leaning on the cheaper side of things. You might end up with cabinets that consist of shoddy workmanship, and cheap materials. If you consider purchasing used kitchen cabinets, you can still spend what your budget allows and get better quality.
Where to Look
The best place to begin your search is at your local used building material dealerships. You'll find that there are companies who will specialize in the sale of used cabinetry, and indeed, some that install new cabinets will sell the ones they have removed. Other places to look are classified ads, flea markets, and online, but do be careful as the savings gained may be lost on shipping costs.
Before You Purchase Cabinets
Before you purchase used kitchen cabinets you're going to want to make sure they are going to fit in the allotted space. Check them for warping and make sure the support members are all intact and unbroken.
