Want to reuse an entire kitchen?

Designing a kitchen piece by piece, particularly a luxury kitchen, can be difficult to visualize and costly. So Ben Johnson of Evergreen, Colorado, bought a recycled one from Green Demolitions.
Johnson got three refrigerators, a standalone freezer, two dishwashers, three ovens, a grill, microwave, 12-by-5-foot island, three sinks, eight display cabinets, a wine cooler and a bar setup, all of which came from a mansion in New Jersey.
Green Demolitions owner Steve Feldman founded the company 11 years ago, networking with real estate agents, designers and estate managers to remove entire kitchens at the company’s expense, including appliances, and retrofit them for other homes.
Since the company launched, Green Demolitions has sold 4,700 pre-owned and showroom display kitchens, primarily on the East Coast, California and in the Midwest. Its Colorado clientele has been small with few others except Johnson, who spent $53,000 on his kitchen, which is valued at $250,000 new.
“The designs are specific based on wall and window layout,” Johnson said. “And what’s interesting is the granite comes with it, pre-cut to the layout.”
The company uses a computer program that shows the buyer how the kitchen would look and if the walls, ceiling and windows are compatible with the design.
Kitchens run a wide range of prices from six figures to four, based on demand, designer, style, age and condition.
“Kitchens are fashion, and people have diverse tastes in fashion and in real estate, and there’s always a buyer for every kitchen,” Feldman said. “The less the customer has to do and buy, the more expensive the kitchen.”
