Home Center Corner: National Home Improvement Month

by Margie Olivares and Sarah Arredondo

May is here and so is the chance to spruce up your home on National Home Improvement Month. The Habitat Home Center is your home for the best deals on all things home repair.

The great thing about the Home Center is the rotating stock. We constantly work to find you the best bang for your buck on new materials.


Install brand new cabinets in your kitchen.

Did you know that the national average for a kitchen remodels costs about $16,000? It’s a long journey, but the Habitat Home Center is a great resource for your remodel.

The first step to renovating your kitchen is getting rid of the old cabinets. For a small fee, our Wrecking Crew can come in and take care of that for you! A contractor will likely tear them out of your walls and throw them in the dumpster. Our crew will take them out, keeping them intact and bring them into the store for us to resell!

Once your old cabinets are out, you can shop our cabinets in-store. Choose from either white, cherry or oak cabinets. For the month of May, all oak and cherry kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanities are on sale! Shop them online HERE.


FUN FACT: Our oak cabinets are 50% cheaper than if you purchase them at a big brand store. Our cabinets are made from plywood not pressed wood, so they’re high-quality too!


Install new flooring.

Replacing the flooring in your home can get pricey. The Home Center features some of the most competitive prices in flooring in the market to keep it affordable for our shoppers. The stores carry different types of vinyl plank flooring in addition to glazed porcelain plank tile. If you are a do-it-yourself type, we also have the tools to help you install your own flooring.


What’s home improvement without a fresh coat of paint?!

Nothing says home improvement like the smell of fresh paint! Load up on 5-gallon buckets of paint to add color to your home. There is even a selection of exterior paint available too. The Home Center also carries primer, paintbrushes and even paint sundries. Don’t forget to get painter’s tape to keep those edges nice and clean.


Thrift a piece of furniture and make it your own

With four different locations to choose from, each store features different and unique pieces. You’ll find chairs, tables, desks, beds,  sofas and so much more. Our best piece of advice on thrifting with us? If you see something you like, it’s best to get it right away because you may never find it again. There’s nothing like finding a unique piece and making it your own.


DON’T FORGET! Take advantage of our annual Memorial Day Sale this National Home Improvement Month! Shop at our stores on Saturday, May 28th and Monday, May 30th.


When you shop at one of our Habitat Home Centers, you help build an affordable home for a hardworking family in need. Go the extra mile when you check out and round up to the nearest dollar with one of our checkout clerks.
