Budget kitchen furniture – our pick of the best

Take a look at our pick of the best new budget kitchen furniture, including storage cupboards, trolleys, island and sink units, for a quick and easy kitchen makeover

Looking for budget kitchen furniture? Give your kitchen a new lease of life with inexpensive seating or extra storage that will complement your existing kitchen. It’s also possible to create a completely freestanding kitchen with individual pieces too – so you may be able avoid fitting costs all together! Budget kitchen furniture to look out for include sink and island units, dressers and trolleys and, if you're going for a freestanding design, include at least one or two larger pieces to give yourself a good run of uninterrupted work surface. Always have storage in mind and look for furniture that is practical as well as pretty, such as tall floor-standing cupboards. So if you’re looking for a cheap and easy way to revive your kitchen, mix affordable kitchen furniture with timeworn pieces (a new painted sideboard alongside a farmhouse table, perhaps?) for a creative approach to kitchen design.
