Salvage and Save

We all know how costly renovating can be both in purchasing and the precious time it takes to source items.

Renovating a period home has its own special set of challenges. It can be frustrating trying to work out where to find a Federation sash window, an original art deco light fitting or wide board hardwood floors.

Below are a few of our favourites to give you a little helping hand.



Salvage is a design source for architects, builders, designers and home owners. They find architectural elements to help make your home unique.

Hughes Renovators Paradise has a huge range of stock including windows, Doors, Flooring, Lights, Raw and Dressed Timbers, Bricks, Bluestone & Terracotta tiles, Bathroom and Laundry furnishings & fittings, Collectables and much more.

If you are looking for second hand bricks you can’t go past Paddys Bricks.  All their bricks and bluestones are salvaged from demolition sites around Victoria.

Urban Salvage sell a wide range of remilled hardwoods and softwoods including wideboard flooring, overlay flooring, dressed board, staircase components, furniture pieces and laminated benchtops.

We would love you to share your favourite salvage places.
