Renovate Your Gonzales Rental Property with These Budget-Friendly Materials

Stylish Living Room in Gonzales with Reclaimed Wood FlooringAs a single-family rental property investor in Gonzales, 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. Wood, stone, & tile, are some of the best budget-friendly materials for your Gonzales rental homes.

Reclaimed Wood

Wood lends an air of comfort and warmth like wood. 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. You can also refinish, stain, or paint it if you prefer a more colorful or contemporary look.


Go for a tropical vibe with the beautiful and environmentally-friendly bamboo. Bamboo rods or sheets are readily available and are very affordable. You can use bamboo on interior walls, patio bars, planter beds, lightweight fencing, and more. This can certainly add beauty to any room or yard!

Ceramic or Porcelain Tiles

You can try ceramic or porcelain as well to stretch your remodeling budget. The variety of styles, colors, and finishes of ceramic tiles can give you a myriad of combinations in the kitchen and bath. Porcelain or ceramic tiles are also easier to maintain compared to expensive and high-maintenance natural stone tiles. A tile countertop also looks more elegant than laminate and costs similar.

Solid Surface Countertops

You can achieve that high-end look without the expensive price tag by going for a countertop with a solid surface. You can get that similar upscale look of granite for much less. Investment property owners can go for solid surface countertops that come in many colors and finishes.

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. You can also opt for painted brick. 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. You can use stone veneer panels for fireplace surrounds, house exteriors, and retaining walls. The price will depend on the style and size you want but stone veneers can instantly upgrade your Gonzales property without the weight and expense.
