I’m not talking about wholesale, warehouse, or outlet “discounts”. Nope.
Renovation on a Budget Friendly Store
Habitat for Humanity has their own donation-based store called ‘ReStore’. Whenever people have leftover materials, a lot of them will donate it to Habitat for Humanity. Nice tax write off, and it’s much better than throwing it off in a dumpster or leaving it in the basement unused. My one stop shop and go to for a renovation on a budget.
It’s crazy how often they get large slabs of granite and pallets of materials. Obviously, they fly off the shelves like hot cakes.
Speaking of large quantities, I found pallets of this backsplash. I’m sure it would look incredible all over a bathroom.
Other parts, they may not have a boat load of. These may be best in smaller areas, unless you know for sure that you can get the rest at a discount as well. As you can see, they’ve got loads of flooring materials. I’ve mainly seen tile in the Habitats I’ve frequented, but they were not lacking in quantity whatsoever. Perfect amount for a bathroom renovation. ;
They weren’t lacking in the hardwood department either. Both these colors are gorgeous, but the second would look amazing with a clean white theme. Or even the rustic/farmhouse look.
Crazy good stuff here, right?
They’ve also got sooo many light fixtures, which can run unnecessarily pricey. Some of these may not be super modern, but they are dying for someone to give them the TLC they deserve.
In this day and age, stainless steel appliances have become the standard. Houses with white appliances or black, may not look as nice or modern as their stainless counterparts. I know that comes with a hefty price tag, but Habitat’s got your back. Look, this is only $325.So many people opt to re-paint their cabinets instead of buying new, which is a very smart idea. Though, if you’re looking for something different, ReStore can seriously hook you up.
They’ve also got doors, sinks, and modern fixtures to aid in your renovation.
My favorite part is their materials, but they do sell furtniture, too. Their furniture is a little pricier than I’d want to pay, but it’s still an option.
Are you looking up your closest ReStore yet? Because you should, if you’re planning for a renovation on a budget.
