Finding the right apartment is a huge challenge, but you also need to furnish it without breaking the bank. Most likely, you haven't downsized from a larger apartment unit to a smaller one, so you're probably looking for more furniture and furnishings for your new place. Just because you have a budget to adhere to doesn't mean you can't find great deals on furniture. The best part is that most, if not all, of it can be conducted online and delivered to your new place, so you won't have to visit a furniture store to get what you want. We've curated five of the best online furniture stores so you can find what you need.
If there's a great one-stop-shop you're looking for that covers furniture for every room in your house, as well as home furnishings that includes rugs, appliances, decor, etc., then Wayfair.com is that place. Although they don't sell super high-end furniture, they do have a wide range to meet just about any budget, and they have sales year-round. Every item has detailed descriptions, and shipping is free for any purchase of $35, which makes it more than worth your time.
Overstock is a lot like Wayfair in that they have a colossal array of furniture and home furnishings. Sales are always in season at Overstock, and you can pretty much find whatever you need, including great furniture for your apartment's balcony, deck, or porch. Overstock also provides great ideas on how to furnish your space depending on size, which is a huge help if you're out of ideas. There's also a huge array of decor items that will probably have you spending far too much time looking at than you should. They also ship for free on most furniture items.
That's right, Target. Who knew the big-box retailer had so many actual furniture items for bedrooms and living rooms? And no, they're not cheaply made items. Their range of sofas and sectionals even includes real leather, in addition to fabrics and microfiber. Bedroom furnishings include bunk beds, bed frames, mattresses, dressers, and nightstands, just to name a handful. Most items come with free standard delivery, and everything is backed by their excellent customer service.
We love World Market because their prices are excellent, and quality is surprisingly good for the cost. What's more, they have designs you won't find anywhere else that are more eclectic and diverse. Need a velvet armchair, a rattan patio rocker, or a locally-sourced wooden shelf? Done. While shipping for larger items is about $49, you can add other items without sending the cost up. If you're able to pick up curbside, you can save 10% on your order, and that's a huge bonus when you're buying hundreds, if not thousands, on new furniture.
We saved the online juggernaut for last because it's the most surprising. We typically associate Amazon with electronics, style items, and the like, but furniture? Yep, they have vendors and manufacturers that sell just about every furniture and home furnishing item you can think of, and most of the shipping for furniture is free, and many items qualify for two-day Prime shipping. We just searched for ‘leather armchair' and Amazon gave us a whopping 912 results. If you can't find what you're looking for, you probably mistyped it.
