Economy class kitchens: the pros and cons of choosing on a low budget


When choos­ing a new kitchen, hav­ing a strict­ly lim­it­ed bud­get, many ques­tions arise, and the main one is where such kitchens are sold so that the price is min­i­mal and the qual­i­ty is good enough. There are econ­o­my class kitchens in every city. The price cat­e­go­ry starts from 15 thou­sand rubles. for the most min­i­mal set (sink, cab­i­net and a pair of hang­ing draw­ers). The ide­al solu­tion for a sum­mer res­i­dence or for a small cubic capac­i­ty home kitchen.

Advantages of an economy class kitchen

Expen­sive does­n’t mean bet­ter. Many cheap mod­els have proven them­selves with the fol­low­ing advan­tages:

  • Many options for ready-made solu­tions — no need to waste time cre­at­ing your own project. I came, I saw, I bought.
  • Suit­able for any buy­er.
  • Sizes are stan­dard.
  • It is easy to find a replace­ment for dam­aged parts of the kitchen.
  • You can add a head­set.
  • It is not a pity to spoil (when rent­ing an apart­ment).
  • The abil­i­ty to update the kitchen if the old bud­get is tired.
  • No need to pay for the mea­sur­er and assem­bler.

Cons of cheap kitchens

For peo­ple who do not have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to buy an expen­sive, design­er kitchen mod­el, all the dis­ad­van­tages described are not so sig­nif­i­cant. In gen­er­al, they are already obvi­ous:

  • Short ser­vice life — from 1 to 5 years. Depend­ing on care­ful use.
  • Often there are out­dat­ed designs.
  • Dif­fi­cult to size.
  • The mate­r­i­al is poor­ly resis­tant to mois­ture — part of the mate­r­i­al (more often on the sink) swells over time.
  • There is no pro­tec­tion against fun­gus and mold.
  • Often the mate­r­i­al smells like chem­i­cals.
  • Dis­tor­tions of lock­ers due to poor qual­i­ty of the mate­r­i­al.
  • There may be defects.
  • Retractable mech­a­nisms are not firm­ly fixed.
  • The table­top is rubbed and scratched after a month of use.
  • It is not prof­itable to buy a cheap kitchen for built-in appli­ances.

Despite the fact that eco­nom­i­cal kitchens have more dis­ad­van­tages, they are still in great demand. It makes no sense to pay more than 100 thou­sand rubles, to get into debt. This option will be good for pen­sion­ers, a coun­try house, a young fam­i­ly, stu­dents.
