Renovation & Remodeling: Where to Buy

For those doing small remodeling, updates or taking on major renovations, here are some advice on where to purchase things:

LOCAL PLACES
These are great showroom places to see actual products
Faucets and Plumbing Fixtures
  • The Kitchen & Bath Showplace (1200 Campbell Avenue, San Jose, CA 95126) - LARGE SHOWROOM!
  • ADC - A Fine Kitchen & Bath Showroom (1264 S Bascom Ave, San Jose, CA 95128) - Showroom not as large as Kitchen & Bath Showplace (Now out of business as of Nov 2011)
  • Tubz (Huge Tub Showroom) 4840 Davenport Pl, Fremont, CA 94538
ONLINE PLACES
These are places we actually purchased from
  • Amazon: www.amazon.com - Gotta love Amazon especially with PRIME (2 day FREE shipping!)
  • Lighting Universe: www.lightinguniverse.com
  • Lighting Showplace: www.lightingshowplace.com
  • Homeperfect: www.homeperfect.com Great prices if you know EXACTLY what you want (Returning and cancelling is a bitch - Actually there is no such thing as cancelling with these guys but given they had the best price and delivered product as described we ordered a bulk of our items through this place including stainless steel sink, grohe faucets, etc.)
  • Glass Tile Oasis: www.glasstileoasis.com
  • Handlesets.com

 ONLINE PLACES TO AVOID:
- Allegro - Did not have a good shopping experience

Word of Advice:
Brick and Mortar with knowledgeable staff maybe willing to price match or provide discounts to stay competitive with online or "big box" (Home Depot/Lowes) places.  I am a big proponent of supporting such places.  However, in the case that you know exactly what you want and price is key, then online is a convenient way to go.  Be aware and READ the return policies using online stores.

 A quick an easy way to price compare online is to use google.com > enter your product >  click "Shopping" and it will show you a list of stores with their total prices.
