Home Timber & Hardware, commonly known as "Home" or "Home Hardware", is Australia's third largest retail hardware chain after Bunnings Warehouse and Mitre 10. It is owned by Metcash.
Home is known for its distinctive advertisements with two animated dog mascots: Rusty and Sandy, often making fun or pointing out perceived flaws of another unnamed hardware store — usually implied to be Bunnings.
Home Hardware sells paint, general hardware, power tools and garden products to the DIY market, as well as timber and building products to the builder and trade markets.
