An empty house, no matter how expensive, never feels like home. The addition of furniture is what makes a new place a welcoming home. But a fancy dining set or sofa can be an overwhelming expense. It’s possible to find inexpensive furniture, such as from these great places.

Before hunting for inexpensive furniture, take an inventory of what pieces have the potential to give the house a comfy, cozy feel. Start by looking for an anchor piece, and then using its unique style to find inspiration to furnish the rest of the home.

Consider shopping online for inexpensive pieces, as it’s convenient to do so from a sunlit seat at the kitchen table. Online retailers abound, making shopping an endless adventure—at least until the perfect dining room table and accompanying set of chairs are found.

1. Wayfair

The online retail giant Wayfair offers countless furniture styles to accentuate a bedroom or fill up an entire home. Consumers have the option to customize their search, searching for furniture that meets a certain style or color. Frequent discounts sweeten the deal.

Examples of inexpensive furniture found at Wayfair include a reclining sectional for less than $650 and end tables that cost less than a pair of movie tickets. Join its loyalty program and save even more. Those worried about the high cost of shipping will have no fears, as it’s always free.

2. Amazon

Long known as a retailer that sells everything under the sun, Amazon offers a good selection of cheap furniture, too. Buyers can snag chairs for under $50 and ottomans built with a sizeable storage capacity for less than $20. Join Amazon Prime and receive free shipping and a speedy delivery.

Amazon’s furniture selection is vast, thanks to the large number of retailers who sell through the site. Buyers rarely feel overwhelmed by the large inventory available, since the furniture offerings are well-organized. Shop by interest or browse Amazon’s trends categories.

3. Ikea

Anyone on a strict furniture budget will find a generous selection of affordable furniture at Ikea. Like Wayfair and Amazon, shopping at Ikea can be done online. Savings are exceptional, but most furniture pieces must be assembled by the buyer. Ikea, however, does offer a $69 assembly service.

Ikea shoppers can purchase a dining table or a three-drawer chest for under $40. Join the Ikea Family program for even more discounts and special pricing opportunities. Shipping is straightforward, starting at $5 for small items and $49 for large goods. Or shop in-store to save on shipping costs.

4. Etsy

Diverse independent businesses sell unique statement pieces on Etsy. Small business owners offer everything from vintage to minimalist and mid-century modern furniture. DIY additions are available from a select group of sellers, which allow buyers to upgrade their current furniture.

Browsing Etsy is a breeze, as their furniture is organized by room and interest. Depending on the seller, buyers can find free shipping. Sellers that do not offer free shipping usually determine the shipping cost by calculating the distance between the buyer and seller.

Buying furniture in a store

5. Home Depot

Home improvement goods are found at Home Depot. But the retailer also offers a wide selection of inexpensive furniture featuring exclusive brands. Furnish a home office with a computer desk for under $110 and a leather desk chair for less than $65.

Third-party sellers on the retailer site also offer plenty of inexpensive furniture options. Shipping costs apply, but buyers can avoid paying the fees on select items by scheduling free in-store pickup. Consumers who are unhappy with a purchase can return it within 30 days.

6. Goodwill

While the abovementioned places offer great deals on new furniture, steals may also be found at second-hand stores. Goodwill is filled with knickknacks and treasures that appeal to second-hand shoppers. Three-thousand Goodwill stores are scattered throughout the US and Canada.

New inventory arrives each day, so shop early in the morning. Frequent visits ensure finding the perfect accent piece for the home. Bring a tape measure to make sure the antique dresser or armoire will fit through the home’s doorway. Arrange for a pickup truck to get the furniture home.

7. Estate Sales

Spring and summer are warm-weather seasons when estate sales pop up in the neighborhood. Scour the estate sales to find quality furniture at bargain prices. Show up at opening for the best selection. If prices are more important, shop on the last day, one hour before the estate sale closes.

Inexpensive furniture can be found in a myriad of good places, online or in-store. Prices can drop even further on certain items when coupons from RetailMeNot or Groupon are used. Shop around the holidays for limited-time deals. Building furniture can be a cost-saving measure.

"I had a great experience with Midwest. The movers arrived early, set up my entire home with protective pads and flooring, effectively moved all of my home items, and cleaned up afterward. I have actually used them twice. I had different employees each time, but both crews of men were equally prompt, professional, and efficient. I would highly recommend Midwest."

"The movers did an incredible job! Our second experience with your company is just as wonderful as our first. Your driver is an incredible leader. The rest of the crew was impressive as well. They all worked tirelessly through out the whole time. This move was stressful with the all the school closings and work changes but they made the whole experience much better."
