The kitchen is the epicentre of household life. Whether it’s cooking meals, sipping your coffee in the morning or hosting family and friends for a dinner party, the kitchen is an integral part of your daily life. But when it doesn’t match your lifestyle needs or design preferences, it can be a tough space to enjoy occupying.
If you’re looking for a change, Habitat HMD’s ReStores are the perfect place to start. Whether all your kitchen needs is some new energy by bringing in some unique and affordable décor, or whether you’re interested in a full-scale kitchen renovation, we have just what you need.
With a wide variety of items for sale, we have all the essentials for revamping your kitchen, and an extremely helpful team of volunteers to help you find the perfect fit for your home.
What type of kitchen items do we sell?
- Kitchen cabinets (uppers, lowers and islands, cabinet doors)
- Appliances (fridges, ovens, dishwashers, microwaves, etc.)
- Small appliances (stovetops, blenders, coffee makers, grills, etc.)
- Lighting (chandeliers, flush mount fixtures, island lights, etc.)
- Kitchen tables

This is just a taste of what we sell in-store, so be sure to check out one of our ReStore locations today!
Why should you renovate your kitchen?
The kitchen is often the hub of your household, but it can get a bit chaotic when multiple people are sharing the space.
If being jostled or bumping into others while trying to make a meal is a familiar occurrence in your home, it might be time to boost the accessibility and utility of your kitchen for greater convenience. A great way to do this is by expanding your counter space using our selection of countertops available in our ReStores.
Picture this: your cabinets are overflowing. You go to open a cabinet door and an avalanche of cookies and cracker packages rains down on your head. Trying feverishly to shove everything back into their designated spots, you think to yourself, “There’s got to be a better way.”
Luckily, there is. Consider adding some additional cabinetry to free up some counter space and avoid the dreaded snack avalanche. We have a variety of modern and unique cabinets for sale in our ReStores to bring you some much-needed storage solutions.
Suit your tastes
Whether you’re leaning towards a more modern kitchen design, you enjoy the space a bit more rustic, or simply think it needs a bright splash of colour, we’ve got something to suit every taste.
Don’t settle for your outdated or traditionally-styled kitchen. With unique, hand-crafted pieces coming out of our ReStores daily, be sure you don’t miss out on these beautiful pieces.
Boost resale value
As the heart of the home, your kitchen has a big impact on its resale value. Often the space where a family spends most of their time, most people moving into a new house want to see that the kitchen will suit their needs.
In order to maximize your resale value, it’s important that your kitchen is up-to-date and optimized for convenience. It’s estimated that kitchen renovations often return more than 100 per cent of the costs upon resale.
How the ReStore makes a difference
Our ReStore operates to cover the costs of Habitat HMD’s office administration, to allow us to put everything else into our build projects.
