Items To Donate After a Home Renovation

Items To Donate After a Home Renovation
  • Opening Intro -

    A home renovation is certainly no easy task.

    With all the planning and detail work that goes into it, you could be forgiven for wanting to be done with everything by the time it's over.


However, renovations tend to create a lot of trash, or at least what some people think is trash. A home renovation is a great time to look at things you no longer need and donate them to someone that could use them.

Here are some items to donate after a home renovation that you should keep an eye out for.


Rarely are you going to go through the hassle of a big remodel and end up using the same furniture you had before. Why not use it to help someone else out?

Even large furniture like couches, dressers, and coffee tables can be donated to the right places, giving them new life with another owner. Don’t forget about the smaller furniture either—end tables, lamps, and stools are just as useful to donate.


Redoing your kitchen is one of the first renovations a lot of people make. When that time comes, you can make a big difference by donating old appliances to the charity of your choice.

Large appliances like refrigerators and ranges can be difficult to throw away, but can be picked up for donation very easily. Also, remember to donate any kitchenware you may not need anymore. These items are in very high demand by people who have trouble affording them.


Of all the items to donate after a home renovation, clothing might be the first thing that comes to mind. Redoing your bedroom or adding closet space is the perfect time to lose some of those old clothes you no longer wear.

This will help you get a fresh start in your newly remodeled home and clear out some excess junk you didn’t need anyway. If the clothes are in good condition, you are good to go to donate them.

      some cleaning ideas to consider      

Building Materials

Remodeling or renovating your home takes a lot of materials, but it’s unlikely you’ll be able to order exactly the amount you need for the project. Excess building materials can go such a long way toward helping the less fortunate.

The extra supplies you donate could go toward building homes for the homeless or shelters for those who need them. Since you no longer need them, why not put them to the best use possible?

Home Décor

Secondhand shops are kept afloat from people like you who renovate their homes and donate their old home décor items that no longer fit. This could be anything from picture frames to fancy dishes.

If it no longer makes sense in your home, you can be sure that it will fit into someone else’s décor perfectly. These items also can produce a lot of trash, so it’s better to donate them when possible.
