If you’ve managed to find Ben’s Repurposed Cabinetry, then you are likely considering the bottom line question regarding our business: Why choose recycled cabinets? Today, we’ll cover why the pros of recycled cabinets heavily outweigh the cons.
Pros and Cons of Recycled Kitchen Cabinets
Con: Not Exactly What You Want
Most of us would agree that for the right savings, we can like just about anything. Coke fans may buy the occasional Pepsi for a party if it’s on sale enough, and that’s usually only a couple dollars in savings. Our cabinets can easily cost 10% of what they would retail at a custom cabinetry store, which makes people forgive the fact that they may not be exactly what they originally wanted. That said, there is validity to the fact that you are getting cabinets made for someone else’s kitchen, with their tastes and preferences already long since chosen.
Pro: Options to Choose From
At Ben’s Repurposed Cabinetry, we offer only kitchens taken from high-end homes, meaning that you’re often getting cabinets from a kitchen that is larger than the one you’re installing into. This gives you some options to work with, like using the money you saved on cabinets to expand your kitchen or picking and choosing which of your new cabinets you want to use. Many of our customers use the recycled cabinets they buy in their kitchen, yet still have enough to create storage options elsewhere in the home; nothing completes a dining area or craft room like some cabinets for storage.
Con: Subject to Stock
Probably the largest drawback to finding the right recycled kitchen cabinets is the patience or luck required. Are the right cabinets for your kitchen out there, waiting to appear in our stock or about to get thrown away? Yes; but are you going to find them today? Maybe not. While there are no guarantees, the best way to get the right recycled kitchen cabinets is to have a little patience and check back to our stock often. If you have the option to afford a little patience, you could save up to 90% on your cabinet purchase. Of course, you could sign up for our email list to receive live stock alerts when we receive new recycled kitchens.
Pro: No Lead Time
Okay, if you’ve ever even thought about ordering kitchen cabinetry, then you’ve encountered the phrase “lead time.” What is a lead time, you ask? Well, in addition to all the time it takes to select, measure, and haggle a set of custom kitchen cabinets, there is a lead time to stick on top – essentially just a fancy word that refers to how long it will take to make, troubleshoot, and deliver your new kitchen. This means that your cabinet supplier has to be able to measure your kitchen (without cabinets), then still take time to actually make your cabinets. Oh, and if that isn’t inconvenient enough, countertops for your new kitchen can’t even begin to get created until your cabinets are installed and measured, meaning yet another delay before you can enjoy having a completed kitchen. At Ben’s Repurposed Cabinetry, our cabinets are already fully built, working, and ready to install today, saving you easily 6 to 8 weeks on your renovation timeline.
Seriously, this is without a con altogether. Depending on the size of your kitchen, you could get custom (and even prefabricated) kitchen cabinet bids in excess of 20,000 dollars, before you even begin adding things like custom colors, stains, material, and features (like slow close and more). Needless to say, getting kitchen cabinets without a major hit to your finances is all but impossible, especially for high-quality. Since we only take the best cabinets from the nicest homes in the Loveland and Fort Collins area, our cabinets were undoubtedly made with price tags that are tens of thousands higher than what you’ll pay for recycled kitchen cabinets here. When we say that you can pay 10 percent of what our cabinets actually get quoted for, that could actually be understating the actual savings, which could easily amount to more than 20,000 dollars. With that much savings, you can splurge on the quartz countertops, real hardwood floors, and still have money left over for the best furniture to round out your design.
