Renovate Your Grandville Rental Property with These Budget-Friendly Materials

Stylish Living Room in Grandville with Reclaimed Wood FlooringAs a single-family rental property investor in Grandville, it’s important that you keep your property’s appeal high within a reasonable budget. To do this, you can choose from various inexpensive materials to update your rental home. From wood to stone to tile, here are some budget-friendly materials for your Grandville rental homes.

Reclaimed Wood

Woodworks wonders in bringing an air of comfort and warmth to any area. But new hardwood is expensive. A great and inexpensive alternative is to use reclaimed wood in your property. Reclaimed woods are great budget-friendly materials for property investors because you can use them for remodeling floors, fences, and decks or adding even more creative decorative elements. Get that cabin or beach house atmosphere with the weathered, rustic look of reclaimed wood. But, you can also choose to refinish, stain, or paint it to achieve a more colorful or contemporary look.


For a beautiful, tropical, and environmentally-friendly profile, you can also use bamboo. Bamboo rods or sheets are usually very affordable. You can use bamboo on interior walls, patio bars, planter beds, lightweight fencing, and more. This beautiful material instantly uplifts any room or yard.

Ceramic or Porcelain Tiles

Stretch your remodeling budget further by using ceramic or porcelain tile. You can create many combinations in the kitchen and bath with the various styles, colors, and finishes of ceramic tiles. While natural stone tiles can get expensive and are high-maintenance, ceramic or porcelain tiles are fairly easy to maintain. A tile countertop will look far better than laminate for about the same cost.

Solid Surface Countertops

Get that high-end look of expensive countertops with ones with solid surfaces. You can get that upscale granite look without paying too much. Solid surface countertops give investment property owners a wide range of colors and finishes to choose from.

Used Brick

You can also buy used bricks and use them for your rental properties in the same way you would use reclaimed wood. Used brick has a pretty weathered look and is more affordable than new brick. Painted brick is also a good alternative. You can use brick to update accent walls, patios, walkways, and of course, chimneys and fireplace surround.

Stone Veneers

To get the look of natural stone without spending a fortune, you can use stone veneers. Stone veneers are thin sheets of real stone on wood or concrete backing. Stone veneer panels are commonly used for fireplace surrounds, home exteriors, and retaining walls. Although the price will vary depending on the style and size, stone veneers can give your Grandville rental property an upgrade minus the weight and expense.
