Okay, how does one go about finding these places? Well, if you live in or near a city or larger town, search salvage store your town (ie. salvage store dallas tx), used kitchen cabinet your town or recycled kitchen cabinets your town for starters. Use the Google Search Box upper right. Habitat for Humanity has a national chain called ReStores with outlets in nearly every state and hundreds of towns and cities in America.
Finally, mentioned above is Craigslist. A great place for finding all kinds of things, including used kitchen cabinets, as not only do contractors and remodelers use this source to sell from, but many DIY homeowners as well. The drawback here is choice. Usually there is only one of anything (like a group of used kitchen cabinets, for instance) per location, whereas the recycle, restoration and salvage houses tend to have several and you may be able to pick and choose only those cabinets which fit your plans.
The bottom line, though, is your bottom line. Getting the best value and having the best remodel you can for what you have. Remember to make adiagram of the space you have and what’s there now (see drawing right). Its a good idea to draw each wall, a floor plan and be as accurate as possible.
Your kitchen (and bath) are the rooms in your home where it’s possible to recoup more than what you invested … if you do the work yourself and be smart about it.
