While nothing excites us more than pinning or saving interior imagery (and 2021 design trends) to our many mood boards, it can also leave us feeling a tad overwhelmed at all the pieces we need to re-create those dream rooms. But designing on a budget doesn’t mean you have to forgo beautiful things. In fact, quite the contrary. We actually love to work within cost constraints because it forces you to get clear on direction, to have conviction in every decision, and only invest in the pieces that you truly love. And thanks to a plethora of incredible interior design stores online now that offer cheap home décor, you can create a designer-worthy home without the millionaire price tag.
But, with so many products to choose from it can be challenging to find the diamonds in the rough—that’s where we come in. Thankfully, we scoured some of your favorite online home destinations—Target, West Elm, H&M Home, Zara Home, Urban Outfitters, and CB2—to source the best affordable home décor that’s guaranteed to make your home look like a million bucks (without spending like one!).
If there’s one place we always turn to for cheap home décor that looks expensive, it’s Target. But it’s their exceptional quality that keeps us coming back. Not to mention the incredible designer collaborations. Our recent favorite is the Studio McGee x Threshold line and while there is so much to love, this patio accent table is most definitely coming home. It says patio accent table, but we can see this in a bedroom or living room too.
There’s nothing like a decorative object that is just as practical as it is pretty. Put this one on the kitchen counter as a cute catch-all for spare change, keys, pens, and more.
Now that spring is in full swing and summer is on the way, we’re looking for simple and affordable ways to refresh our spaces. Rattan is one material we always think of in the warmer months. This mirror is great for the entryway with handy hooks for your keys, dog leash, and everything in between.
If you’re anything like us, you developed a green thumb as soon as the warmer weather rolled out. This lovely planter will make any greenery stand out but we can also see this being used as a vase for garden clippings and fresh flowers.
Make watering your plants a weekly joy with this very chic watering can. You won’t mind leaving this one out on display.
Get ready for more gatherings with these beautiful stoneware plates that will elevate any dinner party.
Hearth & Hand with Magnolia Indoor/Outdoor Concrete Basket Planter
We love the look of basket planters but they’re not always practical. Thankfully, the Magnolia design team created a concrete planter with the look of a basket—genius!
Sometimes all you need for a seasonal refresh is a few decorative objects and cheap home décor like this wood arch object that brings a fresh perspective to any space.
West Elm Column Planters
The column shape of these planters will add an old-world touch to your space. We love them for inside and out!
The easiest way to refresh a space without paying a ton is to put a throw on it. Switch out your mohair throw for a lightweight fabric on our sofa or bed and feel the difference.
Elevate weeknight meals by lighting a candle and setting the mood.
With the warmer weather comes more picnics and time outdoors with friends. This gorgeous cheese board is perfect because it also carries the tools inside. Genius!
We’re suckers for anything marble so we simply can’t resist this chic cheeseboard. What’s not to love?
Spring means warmer weather with an abundance of fresh flowers so make the most of it and add fresh clippings to a glass vase and watch your space light up. It’s magic. Not to mention it’ll also fill your home with their delightful scent.
We’re loving the cottagecore design trend lately and these delicate porcelain plates are giving us ethereal garden party vibes.
This is a really affordable set and would be the perfect cutlery for an outdoor gathering. But we also love any opportunity to cut back on plastic and this 3-piece set is great for your handbag or car so you never need to use single-use plastic cutlery again.
Is it just us or are champagne coupes everywhere right now? We love the nostalgic nod in this coupe design and we can’t wait to cheers to our “new normal” at a garden party with friends soon.
If you’re planning an intimate dining experience with friends at home or outside soon, then might we suggest you invest in these gorgeous linen napkins. We love this sage green color but there are several natural hues to choose from.
We are obsessed with the natural, tactile quality of linen fabric. This cheap home décor looks elevated yet understated all at once. This throw would look good on a chair or table, sofa, or bed.
If you want to upgrade your dining table but are still saving for the one you love (or just don’t want to invest right now), then throw a gorgeous washed linen tablecloth over it and watch it transform before your eyes. Cheapest most impactful upgrade (maybe) ever? We think so.
This midcentury modern table is a beautiful option for a living room or bedroom, depending on the space. It would look great with a stack of coffee table books, a candle, and a coaster to hold your wine or tea as you relax nearby.
Zara Home Wood and Glass Planter
This is like a vase/planter hybrid and we’re into it. It would look great with a succulent or with fresh flowers spilling out.
We are obsessed with vintage vessels right now but if you are having trouble sourcing one you love, then look no further than Zara Home. Their new spring/summer collection has a range of vintage-inspired vases and cheap home décor with a timeworn patina.
Another example of the vintage vessel look at an affordable price point. This terracotta pot is a great option for the dining table, credenza, or kitchen counter.
Name a chicer doorstop? We’ll wait… This wooden bell shape is so chic. With warmer days we’ll be opening up our doors more to let in the fresh breeze so this cheap home décor will look good while working hard.
Zara Home Linen Throw Pillow
Once again our favorite fabric makes an appearance. This time it’s covering a throw pillow which is another great affordable way to freshen up your space for the new season. We love the terracotta tone of this one.
Warm weather also means we’ll be entertaining more outside. Invest in these acrylic tumblers that look like vintage glass so you don’t have to worry about any breakages.
Another chic watering jug that doubles as décor. We love a two-for-one.
Summer means rattan everything for us and this sweet side table is calling our name. We love the unique wavy shape too.
Urban Outfitters Looped Geo Runner Bath Mat
You’ll be amazed at how something as simple as switching out your bathmat can elevate the mundane. Feel the joy beneath your feet as you brush your teeth or put on your skincare.
The warmer weather also means spring cleaning and organizing your space. This wall shelf will help to keep things off the floor in your bathroom, bedroom, or entryway.
There’s nothing quite like the transformative power of light (paint comes in at a close second). These ceramic sconces look vintage at a fraction of the cost.
Urban Outfitters Skye Rattan Stool
Oh, look more rattan! We just couldn’t resist this chic stool which is great for outdoors, in your bedroom, or as an accent in your bathroom (if you have the space!)
This gorgeous table lamp will really light up a space both when it’s on and off. We can see it being styled as a floor lamp next to the bed too.
Onyx is another material we can’t get enough of (it’s actually one of our favorite types of marble) and we’ve never envisioned it as a light before. We’re so in love with this wall sconce and love them in a pair on either side of your bed, in a small reading nook, or to light up a dark hallway.
It’s clear all our favorite online home retailers have caught onto the vintage vessel trend. This planter has all of the beauty of an old pot and we’re here for it.
We love baskets as chic storage solutions or for carrying fresh veggies home from the local farmer’s market.
Talking of raising vibrations, this holder can burn your favorite stick of incense or be a resting place for your palo santo sticks—feel the energy shift!
We love a candle holder that doesn’t look like one. This could just as easily be a beautiful decorative object on a bookshelf.
Add these hooks to your entryway or closet to ensure the home you just organized and spring cleaned stays that way!
