If you'd like to keep Mother Nature in mind during your kitchen's construction, you may want to consider looking into recycled kitchen cabinets. Often, when homeowners install a new set of cabinets in a home they've purchased, the previous set of cabinets is sold to a salvage or antiques store, or any number of reuse organizations that specialize in reclaimed construction elements.

Shop This Look

There are a number of ways to find recycled kitchen cabinets. First, salvage stores are a good place to start—particularly if you're looking for an antique or more historically significant style. These stores can be expensive, but they may be most likely to feature a range of truly unique recycled cabinet styles to choose from.

Next, materials exchanges are a good option. They allow business, non-profits and individuals to trade, sell and buy surplus or used products. Online, you might try eBay for example, but there are many other options to explore as well.

Finally, reuse stores work similarly to exchanges. Some may have restrictions based on household income, and others may only sell to non-profits, but still others will allow anyone to purchase, and donate profits to organizations that support affordable housing.
