Not all of these furniture stores are the same but they all are favorites of people who like to shop at IKEA. But what these people haven’t always known is that IKEA may be a great store, but it isn’t the only one like it.

Today, we have quite a handful of IKEA alternatives for those branching out. These stores are primarily affordable stores with a variety of furniture that will suit anyone’s needs. So let us take a look together.

So of course, if you love IKEA or are looking for something different, then you will love Wayfair. The versatility alone will draw you in but so will the fact that they are super easy to order online from.

CB2

CB2 is a branch of Crate & Barrel that has some of the best modern furniture available. Whereas Crate and Barrel tend to focus on more country or alternative furniture, CB2 has primarily modern furniture.

This is perfect because that’s exactly what IKEA does too. They both prefer to feature modern furniture that is trendy and safe. They are for the average budget, not leaning towards high or low budgets.

MUJI

Urban Outfitters does usually offer everything a college student could want or need, from clothing to dorm furniture, but that’s not all they have. Though their taste is younger than most other stores, they have other options too.

If you have young taste naturally then you will love most of what they have to offer but if you prefer something more traditional, then you may have to go deeper. Still, their prices are good enough that it is worth a look.

World Market can easily become a favorite of those who are IKEA fans. They have a very large inventory and a very large variety of styles. You will have to know what you are looking for or you may get overwhelmed.

Fab Furniture

Not everyone has heard of Fab Furniture, but it is definitely one to add to your list. Their prices are average but their inventory is unique. You can find things here that you won’t be able to find anywhere else.

One unique category at Fab that other stores don’t have is headboards. They don’t just have beds but they have headboards so you can save money by not buying an entire bed while getting the same look.

Zara is another clothing store that has great home decor. They have high-end decor and accessories at some great prices. However, they don’t have a large selection of choices so this is a great place to find inspiration or finish up.

If you already have everything you need, this is a great place to go because you can find the finishing touches. This will bring the room together without you going home with a lot of stuff you don’t need.

West Elm

Yes, we know, you’ve probably already been to Target this week or you are already an avid anti-Target shopper but hear us out. Target has some of the best, if not the best, prices when it comes to furniture.

Most people don’t even buy furniture at Target but those people are missing out. Their low prices don’t mean that they have cheap furniture either. Most of their stuff is well-made and worth a shot. Just make sure to look at reviews.

If this name sounds familiar but you just can’t pin it down, you’re like a lot of people. The owners have been in the family business since the 1950s, so their name has been circulating for quite some time.

Their unique furniture and home decor can be pricey, but it is worth it if you can afford it. Your home will look as high-end as possible if you give them a chance. Maybe just one piece will be within your budget.

Room & Board

Not only does Room and Board have a great selection of furniture, but they also offer great resources too. They even allow you to shop for certain looks as Houzz does. Find inspiration within their inspirations.

As far as prices go on chain stores, Room & Board can be on the medium-to-high end of things. But they do have some good sales every once and a while, making some of their medium-priced furniture rather low.

Etsy
