Becoming a new homeowner can be exciting and overwhelming and the last thing you want to worry about is spending tons of money on home decorations to furnish your new home. A perfect alternative to that would be shopping used decor at the Habitat ReStore and saving money at the same time. Here are five reasons why new homeowners should shop sustainable decor.
Why Should You Buy Used Decor
Shopping secondhand Decor can be super affordable when you are looking for the perfect pieces to make your house a home. There are so many pieces from the Habitat Restore that you shop from such as beautiful chairs, lamps, rugs and picture frames. There are endless styles to fit everyone’s preferences whether that be traditional furniture, classic furniture or modern. Furnishing your home with vintage or gently used decor pieces is a great way to save money and find those really unique pieces
Sustainable decor and furniture are making their stand in the future for lots of new homeowners. When you shop gently used decor and furniture you are helping the environment and being part of a bigger picture of doing your part to reduce, reuse and recycle. You are also getting more sturdy and high quality items therefore you are not needing to buy new decor pieces each year as you would by purchasing from large corporations.
Buying locally is more cost effective because you are saving money on gas by traveling short distances to your local Habitat Restore. When you support locally you are contributing to your local community and members. Supporting the Habitat Restores in Burlington, Milton, Mississauga and Orangville has so many benefits with the most amazing one being our home building projects in the Halton Region, Mississauga and Dufferin County.
The best part about second hand decor and furniture is the opportunity to completely upcycle your finds and put your own touches on them and to make them your own unique one of a kind items such as doing a DIY project and refreshing with new paint or changing knobs on furniture pieces. You will also be reducing what goes in the disposable areas by giving these gently used decor items a second home.
Unique and Vintage pieces
Shopping Unique and Vintage pieces is the perfect hobby. It allows you to find really nice awesome pieces that are not readily available at every store and provides you with the best unique pieces that can become a conversation piece with family and friends. Lots of Vintage and antique pieces have been made with sturdy materials making them good quality so they will last a long period of time becoming a well loved piece in your home for years to come.
