Potential sources for salvaged kitchen cabinets include salvage shops, materials exchanges, online auctions or advertisement sites, estate sales, and flea markets. Some homeowners or contractors preparing to remodel or demolish a home may allow individuals to remove the old cabinets for a small fee.
Some salvage stores offer old kitchen cabinets, particularly cabinets that have architectural interest. Another shopping option is a local Habitat for Humanity ReStore, which sells donated gently used building supplies. The inventory in any salvage or secondhand material store changes frequently, so it may take time to find the specific sizes and styles of kitchen cabinets needed to finish the project. Ads posted on Craigslist, garage sales and estate sales are other potential sources of salvaged cabinets.
