Ex-display and second hand kitchen retailer The Used Kitchen Company (TUKC) has celebrated its 18th year in business, which the company claims to be its best yet.
According to the retailer, it has sold more kitchens in 2023 than ever before and seen a 10% uplift from 2022.
According to TUKC it signals homeowners looking for a more budget-friendly and sustainable way of updating their homes.
Founded by Looeeze Grossman in 2005, The Used Kitchen Company reports to have saved 40,000 tonnes of waste from reaching landfill, whilst simultaneously facilitating the sale of high-end kitchens and home furnishings.
The Used Kitchen Company works with over 120 brands across the UK, from bespoke manufacturers to high-street names and luxury designers, including Clive Christian, Poliform, Bulthaup, Neptune and Tom Howley.
In addition, the business has expanded over the last seven years to include bedrooms, bathroom and dining furniture in its Something Else for Sale section.
Looeeze Grossman commented: “Now, more than ever, people seek an affordable and sustainable solution when updating their homes and I’m delighted that at The Used Kitchen Company, we address both issues.
“We are proud to champion the words ‘used’ and ‘second-hand’, concepts that have evolved hugely over the years.
“There’s still some way to go but we’ve already made some serious inroads. Consumers now recognise the immense benefits of buying second-hand and ex-display kitchens which are often up to 70% off their rrp.
“It also provides retailers with a sustainable avenue to relocate their displays and enhance their eco credentials.
“Our dedication to providing sustainable and cost-effective solutions remains unwavering, and our ventures planned for 2024 underscore our commitment to excellence in the industry.”
Over 1400 showrooms now work with The Used Kitchen Company and, going forwards, it cites an emphasis on strategic partnerships and continued collaborations with manufacturers and showrooms.
