DIY stores in Spain offer a good selection of home improvement supplies, gardening items and economical home decoration products. Check out our round-up of the major brands, how to find special promos and what their store cards offer.
Leroy Merlin / Aki
Part of the same group from Jan 2019, Leroy Merlin and Aki have stores all over Spain, including the Islands. In the upcoming months several Aki stores will be rebranded as Leroy Merlin.
In order to find their latest offers visit the promos section (promociones) where you’ll be able to look through brochures online.
Leroy Merlin also has an online store with flash offers that last around two weeks, as well as an outlet with clearance items. Delivery costs depend on the size and weight of items and are shown at checkout.
Many stores also rent tools and machinery. Check the daily vs weekend rate as the latter is often better value (pick-up on Friday afternoon and return on Monday morning).
For large purchases you can pay for delivery or rent a van.
Online in the Comunidad section you can see customer projects and ask questions (in Spanish).
For regular visitors, it’s a good idea to request a Club Leroy Merlin Card. The card gives 3% back on purchases as Leroy Merlin store vouchers and holders receive exclusive promos. Their “Pack Renueva Tu Casa” gives 10% back as a gift card on major home DIY projects with the following minimum spends:
- 3000€ on kitchens
- 2500€ on attic conversions or windows
- 1900€ on bathrooms
- 1400€ on doors
- 1200€ on wardrobes or gardens
- 900€ on floors
- 600€ on curtains, rugs, mirrors, paint and lighting
Bricor is part of the El Corte Inglés group and has stores across Spain and the Canary Islands. They have a newsletter service if you want to receive their latest offers as well as more information at the bottom of the homepage.
Online payments can be made with an El Corte Ingles store card as well as credit cards. Delivery charges range from 8€ to 25€.
Occasional promos include 3-months interest-free finance when you pay with an El Corte Ingles card, however it includes a small arrangement fee.
Part of the Kingfisher Group which owns B&Q stores in the UK, Brico Depot has around 25 stores on the Spanish mainland and you can see the latest catalogue for each store on their website.
Although Bricomart stores are mainly aimed at the professional sector, you can often buy in small quantities for home projects. They have around 22 locations in Spain, including the Islands. Prices online are shown both with and without IVA (tax)
When visiting their website (bricomart.es) you’ll have to input your post code and choose a local store. The latest brochures are also available online, look for “nuestros folletos” at the foot of the homepage.
Bauhaus has around 15 stores across Spain, except for the Canary Islands.
Buy online and collect at your local store 3 hours later, or if you want home delivery the price will be shown when preparing your online order.
For regular shoppers request a Plus Card (available in store) that gives you 10% back when you spend 3000€ in a 12-month period and exclusive promos. Take a look at the latest brochures online here.
