Sources For Cheap Home Decor

Your Top Destinations For Saving Money on Furniture and Decor

Yesterday on Facebook, I shared that a friend of mine had just purchased her first home. However, since she's just made a major investment, she's trying to decorate inexpensively right now. I have my favorite sources for inexpensive furniture and decor, but I was hoping that you might add to the list. I have to say, there are some savvy shoppers out there! Thanks for all of the suggestions. Take a look at some great places and ideas for saving money on home decor. If you have another source, please add to the list on Facebook or in the comments.

  • Kristen suggested, "TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Target, Cost Plus, Pier 1, and furniture outlet stores. We also have a store here called Just Like the Model . . . it's furniture taken from model homes once the models are sold. They have great prices, and beautiful items, both furniture and decorative."
  • Sheri said, "Cost Plus World Market. Gorgeous decor and great prices. Some nice furniture as well."
  • Evelyn listed "Home Goods, Ikea, and The Container Store!"
  • Kristen said, "I like shopping for vintage home decor on Etsy, for a personal touch. Etsy has enabled coupon codes, so you can find some pretty good deals on the site!"
  • Brooke suggested, "A lot of times you can find some good stuff at thrift stores! A little sanding, staining, paint, and some good old fashioned elbow grease can go a long way!"
  • Pamela said, "Home Goods! I have found great rugs, chairs, bedding, and accessories that I am very happy with! The inventory is always changing."

Keep reading for even more suggestions.

  • Melissa said,"Thrift stores have great finds. If it's not exactly what you're looking for, you can always paint it, refinish it, stencil it, etc."
  • Pia suggested, "The local thrift store . . . great furniture and housewares . . . the furniture can be modified with fabric and paint and glasses/plates are good too. Just run them through the dishwasher. It's also great for wall art, etc."
  • Jane said, "I think Nextag and Apartment Therapy are good resources for cheap furniture."
  • Lisa said, "Overstock is a great place for rugs, as well as lighting, especially chandeliers."
  • Kristin said, "I bought a lot of unfinished furniture from a local store. I painted and stained it on my own. It looks really great and was cheaper than the big stores."
  • Sarah suggested, "If you have the time, Craigslist is a great resource, but it takes patience and diligence. I've furnished two apartments from Craigslist. My aesthetic leans towards classic antiques, but I'm not afaid of scratches and signs of wear and tear — they add character."
  • Amanda said, "The Bright Spot can be great for lighting, but it depends on what style you have in mind. (If you want Mission, this is the place.)"

Kitchen Accessories: Anthrpologie Sales Section House Accessories: TJ Maxx & Urban Outfitters Furniture: Garage sales & HD Buttercup The one thing I do tell friends and family is to ask stores when their floor models go on sale. Many times, the stores are more than willing to sell you a floor model at discount than pay to have it shipped to a distribution center or take up floor space. Lastly, if you live near a large city, many have home staging services with large warehouses of inventory. With the depressed housing market, they are looking to get rid of some of their inventory, so do some checking and ask some realtors.
