These Are Our Favourite High Street Places To Buy Cheap Homeware (That Actually Looks Really Expensive)

From high street homeware to cheap online bargains.

Cheap affordable homeware

by Charlotte Pavitt |

The days of spending a fortune to kit your house out with really cute stuff are officially over. Ever since IKEA came on the scene and made it really easy to get homeware at an affordable price, many of our favourite shops have been following suit.

If we're being real, IKEA isn't always the best option - for starters, these brands all have excellent online shopping options, without IKEA's eye-watering delivery costs.

From our favourite high street brands like H&M and La Redoute, through to discount stores like Tk Maxx, we've listed some of our favourite places to buy cheap and affordable homeware - that's also really rather lovely.

Get the bedroom of your dreams with these brilliant buys from our fave interior brands:

Tk Maxx

Tk Maxx, the off-price discount retailer, and sister brand Homesense are the go-to places for big-name brands, at super affordable prices. From fashion clothes and accessories to beauty and gifting - they're not just great for homewares. Shop our fave new-in pieces:
