Where to find cheap, high-quality furniture


One of the most costly parts of moving is shopping for new furniture. Not only do you want to buy quality pieces that will last at least a couple of years, but you also want to minimize the cost in case you move again or can’t take good care of the products.

If you have a budget, then shop at the following furniture stores, known for their affordable, high-quality, and modern products.


Though Wayfair does not have any physical furniture stores, this online retailer is the jackpot for modern pieces at a modest cost. You can shop for anything and anyone here since Wayfair’s wide selection covers lots of different styles and designs, whether you’re looking for a dining table or accent nightstands.

Wayfair also has some great discounts (items starting under $20) and even offer free one- or two-day shipping, in addition to an assembly option at a small cost. Just read the reviews and get a sense of the products before you commit and buy; most times, you’ll be shocked by the quality.


Shopping at this Swedish furniture store won’t hurt your wallet, no matter how many of their Scandinavian-style pieces you buy. They offer some of the most low-cost selections on the market, all simple and sleek in design and completely ready to assemble. IKEA just might be the perfect place to be budget-conscious about furniture, especially if you’re not one to commit to a single style.

At their massive store or online, you can find all you need to achieve anything from a minimalist, modern look to a more colorful, seasonal line — all at an affordable price. Be warned, the brand is known to have pretty confusing build-it-yourself instructions, but the end product will be worth it.


Target isn’t quite recognized as much as the other furniture stores, but the store should be right up there with the top brands. You’re probably shopping at Target for their comfy PJs, beauty products, and all the other random sales, but their basic furniture and home design buys are just as robust and well-priced for the market.

You can shop their great selection of big pieces — chairs, futons, drawers — as well as lots of collaborations for decor to style your space on a budget. Keeping on brand, lots of their stuff will have killer discounts, free shipping on orders over $35, and you’ll find a style that works for any kind of space.


Some of the best offers on the market for beds, sofas, and more can be easily found on the online retail giant, Amazon. Just with your laptop, you can outfit every single space in your home, from your dining room to bedroom, and get products delivered straight to your doorstep and assembled for you.

If you found a piece that you love at West Elm, you can most likely find a similar version on Amazon at a much lower cost. What’s more is that the customer reviews can really help you make informed decisions, and Amazon offers some of the best customer services out there, meaning you can have any concerns about sales addressed promptly.


You can also find some incredible discounts at Walmart, where prices start at under $200 for a sofa and $40 for desks and dining room pieces. You can shop online while browsing their helpful reviews, or you can choose to pick up in-store on the same day. They’ve got a large selection of decor and appliances as well, so don’t underestimate this cost-efficient brand.
