Renovate Your Mapleton Rental Property with These Budget-Friendly Materials

Stylish Living Room in Mapleton with Reclaimed Wood FlooringAs a single-family rental property investor in Mapleton, maintaining your Mapleton property’s appeal need not be a challenge even when you are on a budget. There are now many inexpensive materials you can choose from to update your rental home. You can pick between wood, stone, or tile as budget-friendly materials for your Mapleton rental homes.

Reclaimed Wood

Wood lends an air of comfort and warmth like wood. But new hardwood is expensive. A more affordable alternative is using reclaimed wood on 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. Reclaimed wood gives off a weathered, rustic look similar to cabins and beach houses. You can also have them refinished, stained, or painted if you are going for a more colorful or contemporary look.


To achieve a beautiful, tropical look, you can use bamboo. Another pro to using this material is that it is environmentally-friendly. There are many affordable sources of bamboo rods or sheets. You can use bamboo on interior walls, patio bars, planter beds, lightweight fencing, and more. This will certainly beautify 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. Unlike high-maintenance natural stone tiles, ceramic or porcelain tiles are less expensive and easy to maintain. 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. Because solid surface countertops come in a variety of colors and finishes, they offer versatility and affordability for your investment property.

Used Brick

Your rental properties will benefit from used brick, as well as reclaimed wood. Aesthetically pleasing with its characteristic weathered look, used brick is more affordable than new brick. You can also use painted bricks instead. You can use brick to update accent walls, patios, walkways, and of course, chimneys and fireplace surround.

Stone Veneers

To get the appearance of natural stone for much less, you can use stone veneers. Stone veneers are thin sheets of real stone installed on a wood or concrete backing. Stone veneer panels are popularly used for fireplace surrounds, exteriors, and retaining walls. The price may vary depending on the style and size that you choose, but stone veneers can update your Mapleton rental property without the weight and expense.
