While nothing excites us more than pinning or saving interior imagery (and the year’s biggest design trends) to our many mood boards, it can also leave us feeling a tad overwhelmed by 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, it’s quite the opposite. We actually love to work within cost constraints because it forces you to get clear on direction, to have conviction in every decision, and to 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. 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!).

Studio McGee Threshold Bluffdale Wood Patio Accent Table
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 forever favorite is the Studio McGee x Threshold line. While there’s 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.
Studio McGee Threshold Bluffdale Wood Patio Accent Table, $65
Threshold™ x Studio McGee Decorative Sculptural Geometric Folded Bowl
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.
Threshold™ x Studio McGee Decorative Sculptural Geometric Folded Bowl, $35
Opalhouse™ x Jungalow™ Figure Mirror with Basket
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.
Opalhouse™ x Jungalow™ Figure Mirror with Basket, $70
Project 62™ Geared Stoneware Planter
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.
Project 62™ Geared Stoneware Planter, $8
Pure Recycled Glass Vases
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.
Pure Recycled Glass Vases, $41.40 (reg. $46)
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 you can conveniently slip this cutlery into your handbag or keep it stored in your car.
3-Pack Cutlery, $14.99
Washed Linen Tablecloth
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.
Washed Linen Tablecloth, $64.99
We are obsessed with vintage vessels right now but if you’re having trouble sourcing one you love, then look no further than Zara Home. They have a range of vintage-inspired vases and cheap home décor with a timeworn patina.
Ceramic Vase, $49.90
Astr White Onyx Wall Sconce
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 obsessed 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.
Astr White Onyx Wall Sconce, $99.95
