Customers often ask us whether they can donate or sell their old but in good condition cabinets, appliances, and fixtures. The answer is a most definite YES!

For clients that would like to recycle and not waste materials that others might want, donating these lightly used materials to Habitat for Humanity is a great idea.

Link to donate to Habitat for Humanity

Habitat advises that they accept 8 types of construction materials. Even cabinet hardware that is in good condition they can resell to help finance their organization. Keep in mid though that all materials must be in very good condition. Ask your kitchen designer if he or she thinks your materials meet Habitat’s donation criteria.

.

Here are the three most popular donations with notes from Habitat:

1. Sinks, toilets and bathtubs
Donating is a great way to keep these bulky items out of the landfill. If you’re donating a bathtub or sink, make sure that they are not stained and do not have chips in the porcelain. If you are remodeling an older bathroom, your vintage fixtures will be surprisingly popular at the local architectural salvage store.

.

2. Cabinets
Remodeling a kitchen often means replacing kitchen cabinets. Luckily, someone else may want those kitchen cabinets you remove, and recycling them will cut down on construction waste. Kitchen cabinets should be in good working order: Check to make sure that the drawer pulls work, and keep the doors and drawers together when you donate them.

.

3. Working appliances
You also can donate working appliances like stoves, refrigerators, dishwashers* and washing machines. They need to be clean and in good working order. Many organizations will help these appliances find a new home, including Habitat for Humanity, home salvage shops, and secondhand stores like The Salvation Army and Goodwill.

.

Even if your cabinetry, countertops, appliances, and fixtures don’t meet the standard needed to donate them to Habitat, The Salvation Army or other charities this most certainly DOES NOT mean that they couldn’t be sold on Craigs List. Link Here In fact people will buy almost any of these items if they are simply in working order and the price is right.

So if you would like to be charitable and see your materials reused, simply set the price low for these materials.

.

Or if you would like to add to your kitchen renovation budget set the price a little higher.

.

Hoping your new kitchen is everything you dreamed and MORE!

And of course . . .

Bon Appetit!

    Hi Lynda,
    Four cabinets might be too few pieces. Call Habitat for Humanity and Goodwill and see.

  11. pmcalary, January 19, 2020 at 12:14 pm:

    we do not buy cabinets

  12. Ervin Laughlin, January 19, 2020 at 11:48 am:

    I have kitchen cabinets for sale. Will be available 2 / 7/ 2020 . In excellent shape.

  13. ITSAdmin, October 25, 2019 at 9:17 am:

    Your best bet is to sell them on Craig’s list or you can try this site https://www.theusedkitchencompany.com/sell-my-kitchen/
    No kitchen cabinet dealers or showrooms will buy your cabinetry. Even in boxes don’t expect more than 25 cents on the dollar. That’s why donating them to Habitat for Humanity or another Charity can make sense. You will get the write off at the full price and not have to haggle and bargain.

    Hello

    We are doing a kitchen extension and want to sell our kitchen island and kitchen cabinets. Hob and extractor fan included. Kitchen is 2 years old.

    Can someone get back to me to discuss this.

    Thanks

  17. pmcalary, June 14, 2019 at 1:23 pm:

    No we don’t do any of it. Our blog just lets people know they can contact the organizations that do. We also only sell cabinets within a few hours of Philadelphia.
