You’ll wish you’d heard about these places sooner.
Don’t get me wrong — I love me some IKEA, but there are times when I wish I knew of other home decor stores to spend my money at. You know, stores where the furniture and decorations don’t look like they were constructed by 5 years old during playtime. And not that there’s anything wrong with that, but unless you’re investing in an entire IKEA setup (which I’m not), the act of shopping there doesn’t make me feel like much of a “big girl” even if I do have my own apartment and pay my own bills.
If you’re looking for other places to shop at that aren’t IKEA, this list has got you covered with both online and brick-and-mortar stores. While the price points may vary, every store listed has items that are not only affordable, but stylish and durable.

Yup, H&M’s home decor section is already rivaling that of Target’s. While you won’t find large furniture items, you will find an assortment of candles, table pieces, wall art, and bathroom furnishings. These pieces are sure to add that extra bit of attitude you’re home may need.
Hayneedle sells an assortment of pieces in a variety of styles. This is one home decor shop worth checking out!
Who doesn’t love TJ Maxx’s Home Goods store? It’s grown over the past couple of years to develop a massive cult following. Each Home Goods store has a different selection of pieces which makes it a fun weekend trip.
Last, but not least, Etsy is your go-to shop for any- and everything handcrafted and artisan. As you can imagine, the home & living section is huge so go into the site knowing exactly what it is you’re looking for to avoid being overwhelmed.
There’s nothing I love more than home decor shopping! It’s always fun to transform your home and make it the cozy space you deserve to be in. Hopefully these stores offer you a reprieve from having to step into IKEA.
