With holiday plans on hold for many, this might be the time to get on with some home and garden improvements. Many of us have been in our properties non-stop with home working, and know exactly which parts need a makeover.
So if you’re thinking of giving your home a lick of new paint, erecting a garden shed or just a few shelves, here’s a list of DIY (Do It Yourself) stores in Luxembourg, in alphabetical order.
If we’ve missed a store that you use, let us know and we’ll add it.

Firewood and pellets, gardening equipment and sheds, and a host of DIY products, Adam Matériaux is the place to come if you know what tools you need and you know what changes you want to make.
Batiself – Foetz, Ingledorf and Strassen
A big hardware and DIY supplier, Batiself stocks tools, heating and electric parts, sanitary wear, paint, tiling and structural materials as well as garden equipment.

If you need a new hoover, a towel rail or some garden furniture, then Cactus Hobbi has a good selection, plus car accessories and DIY tools. They don’t stock pure building materials, flooring or heating supplies, so this is more the place to come for a minor home facelift. Prices tend to be on the higher side, but the quality is usually good, and they can arrange for home delivery of bigger items or white goods. It’s also the place to get garden equipment such as lawnmowers and pressure washers, and great for bedding or window box plants.
Glaesener-Betz – Contern and Redange
Garage doors, interior doors, Velux windows, parquet flooring, a new roof, a fireplace or pellet stove and garden paving or decking. Glaesener-Betz can also provide civil engineering support if you’re undertaking a big change, and deliver materials to your home.

Globus Baumarkt also stocks bikes and e-bikes, tiles, paints, sanitary wear like shower trays, windows and wooden flooring. Prices aren’t rock bottom but quality is probably at the heart of this German-owned outfit.

Another German outfit and probably the most popular DIY store, so expect parking to be full-on during a bank holiday weekend.

For bigger projects they have bathroom and plumbing supplies, paint and wallpaper, flooring and tiles, kitchen, hardware and machine tools.

Other stores with DIY
Not really full-on DIY, but if you need to pick up a few garden ornaments or lights, basic tools and paint supplies then Action (stores across Luxembourg) usually have an aisle or two dedicated to this, often stocking seasonal themed items.
