Shopping for homeware became my favourite hobby when we bought our house, I would even skip right past the beauty counters in any department store and head straight for homeware. Although I lusted after lots of high end furniture and accessories I had a budget to stick to so I quickly found my favourite places, both online and instore, where I could buy everything I needed for the best prices.
I have a Matalan close to me and its always been one of my favourite shops for budget fashion but I recently discovered how good their homeware is. The have a whole range from kitchen essentials, gorgeous bedding, and accessories inspired by high end trends at a fraction of the price. If you’re after lighting, you need to check out their website for a fab selection.
Supermarkets have really stepped up their homeware game recently and they’re well worth a look for everything from household essentials to pretty accessories. Every time I head to Tesco for a food shop I can’t stop myself having a snoop around their homewares (Check out their Fox and Ivy range for some serious luxury!). I’ve also picked up a few bits in Morrison’s and Asda and I’ve heard Sainsbury’s have a good selection. Plus, I have to mention Aldi for their famous candle dupes – I love our set at home!
A little pricier but they always have gorgeous furniture, bedding, textiles, and accessories. We got our sofas and TV cabinet from Next as we found the furniture was good quality for a mid-range price. They provide fabric swatches which I found so useful before choosing our sofas as I could match fabrics to paint samples before committing.
Wayfair has such a huge selection of homeware it can be overwhelming! However, if you know what you’re looking for they have lots of helpful filters and they have items for every style and price range. They often have sales with hundreds of discounted items so I would definitely recommend a look if you’re after a bargain.
This is one of the pricier places I shopped for homeware but I really love Made‘s quirky style. We bought our bedside tables from them which were a bit of a treat as we spent more than I was planning but I just really loved the style and I was struggling to find anything similar elsewhere.
6. TK Maxx and HomeSense
If you’re a lover of homeware then you need to visit TK Maxx or HomeSense. I spend ages in their shops as they’re full of all sorts of different items from hundreds of brands. Its easy to find lots of bargains and I always come out with exactly what I was looking for, as well as lots of things I probably don’t need!
How could I miss Ikea? Although I’m sure I don’t need to explain Ikea to anyone, we got some really good bargains from there, especially for our kitchen, that I had to mention them. Ikea is probably the first place to head for home basics but they also have loads of really stylish pieces that really surprised me. Also, don’t forget to head to the bargain section near the tills as you can find all sorts for a reduced price!
