From stores with extra discounts, the most generous and convenient shipping services, great return policies and rewards programs, these are some of the best places to buy home decor online.
1. The Home Depot
Grass seed, plants, and appliances may come to mind when you think of Home Depot, but many stores have a wide selection of home decor and furniture. This superstore offers free standard shipping on most orders over $45, which isn’t that hard to hit when you’re furnishing a room. The Home Depot also regularly offers sales on its items, so it’s always worth checking to see what you can get for a discount. There’s a clearance section on the site, and you can also shop by price range.
If you’re not comfortable having big items dropped off in front of your home, The Home Depot has more than 2,000 brick-and-mortar stores, including locations in all 50 states, and you can have most items sent to your nearest store for free pickup – that’s also pretty convenient for returns. In most cases, The Home Depot takes returns on undamaged items for 90 days after purchase and 365 days for purchases made with a store credit card.
Amazon has pretty much everything, so shoppers have lots of options when it comes to home decor. The e-commerce giant also has two of its own furniture brands, Rivet and Stone & Beam, that provide everything from upscale-looking bookshelves, rugs and more at an affordable price. You don’t have to be an Amazon Prime member to shop on Amazon, however, members get free 2-day shipping — even for large pieces of furniture. Some purchases for Prime members even qualify for free same-day or one-day shipping depending on the ZIP code.
In most cases, Amazon accepts returns within 30 days.
Prime has additional benefits, too, including a streaming service that you can use to watch your favorite show while you unwind on your new couch.
3. Joss & Main
Joss & Main offers free shipping on orders over $49. It has an extensive selection of everything from furniture to lamps, and daily sales that can save you as much as 70 percent. In addition to sorting by price point, you can also sort items by how much of a discount is on offer. Joss & Main offers several options for delivery, including curbside, front door drop-off (outside or inside), room of choice and even all-inclusive delivery and assembly. If you need to return, you have 30 days from purchase to send an item back for a refund. It’s worth noting that some items, including clearance items or pieces that you’ve already built, can’t be returned unless they’re defective.
AllModern.com has furniture and accent pieces for just about any room, with a site that’s easy to browse. There’s an outlet section that has great deals on overstocked items, and you can also snag some good finds on new items that have been returned — just look for the “open box deals” option. For the most part, items over $49 are eligible for free shipping. You can return items within 30 days for a refund, though you may have to pay return shipping. All returns, except items on clearance, are accepted as long as the item is in new condition and in its original packaging,
5. Cost Plus World Market
Cost Plus World Market shines when it comes to eclectic items, like unique wall decor and standout home furnishing items. There’s a section on the World Market website dedicated to coupons and online offers, and with a keen eye, you can save big-time. If you sign up for the World Market Rewards program, you can get even more perks and save 15 percent off your first order. You can have your purchases delivered to your door, but you may wind up paying shipping (although the coupon section sometimes has a code to waive shipping if your order exceeds a certain minimum purchase). You can, however, have any item shipped free of charge to one of Cost Plus World Market’s 270-plus locations — you’ll just have to take it home yourself.
Target has a sweeping (and oh-so-trendy) selection of home furnishings, from faux fur rugs to furniture. Target offers sales both online and in their 1,000+ stores, and you can find offers in the “deals” section on Target.com. Target offers free two-day shipping on most orders over $35, however, many items under that amount are eligible for free two-day shipping if you use a Target REDcard, which also shaves 5 percent off your total. There’s also a possibility that what you’re looking for online is already at (or can be easily sent to) your nearest Target, which can help you get something faster if you don’t want to wait for delivery.
You can return most purchases in-store or online within 90 days, and you get an extra 30 days with a REDcard. Large items may qualify for return pickup, but you may be on the hook for a return shipping fee depending on your reason for returning.
Article.com, which boasts affordable prices due to its direct-to-consumer model, has a sale section where you can find markdowns. Article typically charges $49 for shipping, although some of its smaller items can be shipped using a standard courier service for $19. If you spend $999 or more, however, shipping is waived. Article delivers to your door (or closest ground-floor location) with basic shipping. For $99 (or $50 if you spend $999 or more), Article will deliver your order to your room of choice, and for $169 (or $120 if you spend $999 on your order), someone will actually unbox and set up your furniture. You have 30 days to return an item if you don’t like it “no questions asked,” but you still have to pay shipping. Article will let you exchange an item once without incurring additional shipping costs. An important note: You have to return items in their original packaging, and items marked “final sale” aren’t covered by Article’s return policy.
IKEA is known for budget-friendly furniture and home decor, and you can save even more with their online and in-store sales. Small items have a shipping cost of $9 and large items start at $39 — but the total large-item shipping cost will vary based on product demand and your proximity to the nearest IKEA distribution center. You can choose to have your purchase delivered to your door or to whatever room you’d like. IKEA partners with TaskRabbit to offer assembly services if you’d like some help putting your items together, which starts at $36 for some small items and is under $100 for desks, sofas, dressers and bed frames. Assembly of a large wardrobe could run you up to $350. Delivery and assembly combos from your local IKEA may be more expensive. IKEA has a liberal return policy: 365 days as long as the product is in “re-sellable condition,” which can even apply to products that have been assembled. You’ll be on the hook for fees associated with sending the item back, though.
With more than 5,000 stores in the U.S., Walmart has stores pretty much everywhere. Walmart offers store delivery for items that aren’t in stock at your local store. Walmart has a large home decor and furniture selection that’s frequently updated, and there are often sales — especially around holidays. The retail giant also offers free two-day shipping — without any sort of membership fee — for orders over $35. As far as returns go, you can ship your purchase back for a refund within 90 days at no additional cost.
If you’re buying something large, like furniture, you can have it assembled by Walmart partner Porch Home Services. If an item is eligible for Porch services, you can choose and pay for that option when checking out. Then someone from Porch will reach out to you to set up a time to deliver and assemble your Walmart purchase. The price for this convenient service varies depending on the product.
Overstock has a huge selection of, you guessed it, overstock items, including home furnishings. Their prices are often lower than other retailers and they regularly offer specials and discounts. You can even shop by style — rustic, modern, industrial and many more, and they offer free standard shipping on orders over $45. Like Walmart, Overstock partners with Porch Home Services to offer assembly assistance. You can choose that option when checking out, but prices and scheduling are set up directly through Porch. If you need to return something, you have 30 days to start the return process for a full refund, provided your items are in the original packaging and in unused condition. Opened or used items might qualify for partial refunds — and the same applies to items returned after 30 days.
