Filling your home with furniture is exciting. You can shop for pieces that suit your style, create a different aesthetic in each room of your home, and fill your space with items that bring you joy. But though buying furniture is fun, it’s also very expensive. The average person spends more than $8,000 to fill an apartment with furniture – and furnishing a home is even more expensive, costing from $25,000 and up.

However, there are ways to save money when you’re buying new furniture. If you shop at the right retailers, you may be able to find savings and a wide selection of low-priced pieces for every room. And online furniture retailers are one great option if you’re looking for budget-friendly furniture.

The following websites offer affordably-priced furniture in many different colors, styles, and unique designs.

1. Wayfair

Wayfair is one of the biggest furniture stores you’ll find online. With a massive selection that includes everything from bedroom sets to couches to dinnerware to home decor, Wayfair truly has every kind of item you might need to furnish your home. There are more than 18 million home goods to shop on the Wayfair website, making it the perfect place to browse for absolutely anything related to your home¹.

What really makes Wayfair great, though, is its frequent sale events and affordable pricing. Shoppers can check out Wayfair’s always-available clearance and closeouts section, which offers up to 80 percent off the original price of items². Additionally, Wayfair offers daily sales for shoppers, marking down certain items by anywhere from 10 percent and up. Throughout the year, you can also shop special discount events, clearance events, and holiday sale events to knock down furniture prices even more.

2. Overstock

Overstock is a furniture and home goods retailer that got its start with low prices and incredible discounts. When it was first founded in the 1990s, Overstock sold extra merchandise and returned items from home stores, marking prices down below wholesale to give customers great deals³. Still today, Overstock sells closeout furniture at bargain prices, meaning anyone can find a great deal.

If you’re looking to save money, Overstock offers more than just affordable prices. New customers can sign up for email promotions and get a 15 percent off coupon⁴. Throughout the year, Overstock also hosts sale and discount events like Black Friday, Spring or Summer Black Friday, and special deals on certain furniture brands. Customers can also join Overstock’s Club O to earn rewards on every purchase – which can mean discounts on future purchases.

3. Ikea

If there’s one furniture store everyone knows, it’s Ikea. The Swedish furniture company, which sells unique, affordably-priced furniture for every room of the home, has stores around the world. But now, you can shop Ikea’s vast selection of everything from furniture to shelving to home goods to dinnerware right online.

Although sale events are rare at Ikea, you’ll find low prices every day of the year. No matter what you’re looking for, there’s an affordable option available at Ikea. For example, you can find beds and bed frames for as low as $40⁵. Modern sofas with style appeal can be bought for as little as $149⁶. No matter what you’re looking for or need for your home, Ikea likely has it at a price that’s well within your budget.
