The Best Cheap Furniture Stores to Get Quality Furniture for Less

The cost of furnishing any space depends on where you source the furniture. Finding the best cheap furniture stores will substantially reduce the cost of furnishing your house or apartment. But how do you know where to find the best cheap furniture stores?

You can find cheap furniture with:

  • Department and furniture stores (in-store and online)
  • Using cashback and rewards apps or programs like Rakuten
  • Buying from sellers on apps like Mercari
  • Garage sales, estate sales, etc

It’s all about knowing where to look to get the best deal on furniture prices.

The chances of finding a dining set from Pottery Barn under $300 are slim to none. But what about at a store like Overstock?

Let’s talk about some other cheap furniture stores (that won’t skimp you on quality either).

Best affordable furniture stores with good quality for a low price

Most people go for more expensive furniture because they think cheap furniture has low quality. They think that if they spend $1,000 on a sofa, it will last longer with a couple of dogs and cats versus a $300 sofa from Costco.


It’s more than possible to get good quality furniture that will withstand a couple of accidents without forking over 4 figures for it. You just have to know where to look.

1. Amazon

Amazon has everything under the sun when it comes to ordering online with some of the best shipping deals. If you become an Amazon Prime member, you can easily get free 2-day shipping on your furniture orders.

Not all furniture product listings have a prime shipping option though so make sure to look at that and the shipping price for any that don’t have that option.

You can find the following furniture categories on Amazon:

  • Sofas and couches

Homegoods is a part of a line of stores that include TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and more. Their line of stores is known for having quality items for budget prices. They are so well known that they have a sort of cult following due to it being similar to browsing a flea market but in a nicer environment.

The one thing with Homegoods is that you can’t shop their items online. You must go to the store to shop, but they do have an option to deliver your items for you after shopping. They also have an app that shoppers will post their greatest finds. You can follow nearby stores and use it to know when to go to the store to snag a deal.

Different furniture categories to browse are:

  • Chairs
  • Organization
  • Kid’s furniture
  • Pet beds and furniture
  • Kitchen and dining
  • Bed and bath

Urban Outfitters doesn’t have as large a variety of furniture available as most of the other stores listed, but they do offer more unique picks for a bargain.

If you are looking for a more light and airy feeling like something out of a magazine but for a fraction of that sort of price tag, then Urban Outfitters will work for you.

Some of their home and furniture items include:

  • Dressers and wardrobes
  • Soft seating
  • Sofas
  • Storage
  • Shelves and hooks
  • Beds and headboards
  • Tables and desks
  • Chairs
  • And more

9. Costco

Costco has everything from TVs to wine, jewelry, peanut butter, and clothes. They also have furniture with affordable price tags but still on the higher end of this list.

Some of the categories you will find online and in the store are:

  • Couches and living room furniture
  • Kitchen furniture and dining sets
  • Bedroom furniture
  • Kids furniture
  • Baby and nursery
  • Fireplaces
  • And more

How to compare prices between stores

If you are looking at a few of these stores but are getting bogged down in the details with what to go with, try an online price comparison tool.

Google Shopping has a price comparison tool that you can use when looking at a similar set of items across most of the stores above. It only works for stores that sell their items online so it won’t show anything from Homegoods.

You can also use this same tool to search for products, save them for later, and track their prices.

Final words: Get your interior decorator on

Getting a furniture upgrade is certainly a great way to spend your extra money on. Now that you have an idea of where to continue your search for the perfect items for your humble abode, it’s time to get creative. Run wild with it. Keep being crafty with both the way you decorate and how you source those items.

If you can, try using a passive income app or a money-back credit card for your furniture purchases and save even more money down the line. If the store has its own rewards program that is free to join, join it. Those savings add up.

The more savings, the better.
