The discount superstore offers a number of categories of furniture both online and in stores. You’ll find a wide selection of brands and designs — and likely a piece that fits your budget. Be sure to check the reviews to make sure you’re not overpaying for something that won’t last.


Swedish furniture giant Ikea is known for its low prices, easy assembly and meatballs. Whether you get lost in the store’s meandering hallways or head to the website to find exactly what you’re looking for, you’ll find a variety of options in just about every category.


Online retailer Wayfair has continued to grow and attract furniture lovers over the years. From chic designer pieces to everyday basics, there is something for everyone at an affordable price point.


While Amazon often beats out the competition on price, options and shipping speed, buying furniture with your Amazon Prime perks might prove to be a little more of a challenge. With many options across categories, an item you love might be easy to find but feature horrendous reviews. Be sure to do your homework before you click “buy.”

Home Depot

Handier shoppers might flock to Home Depot to acquire supplies to build their own furniture. But the hardware superstore has its own selection of brand-name furniture where you might find the perfect addition to your home.

Birch Lane

Looking for traditional pieces that are built to last? Head over to Birch Lane. The Wayfair-owned outlet specializes in timeless home furnishings that won’t break your budget. Whether you’re looking for the perfect bathroom fixtures or a reliable hutch, Birch Lane may have just the thing you need.

Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist and OfferUp

For homemakers not looking to spend too much (or anything) on furniture, explore local digital classifieds to find diamonds in the rough. Websites such as Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist and OfferUp can be excellent sources for vintage, cheap or even free items. Turn something old and used into a beautiful new piece with a little DIY effort, or find gently used items that people are just trying to get out of their own homes. Always watch for scammers, and use your best judgment when it comes to payment options.
