Thrift Stores and Antique Stores
If you want to reduce, reuse and recycle, finding home accents at a thrift or antique store is always a good idea! I’ve found fantastic vintage kitchen items there like cups and bowls, and I’ve also found lots of lovely brᴀss accessories like candlesticks, glᴀssware and wall decor that I can use as-is. It’s so nice when the current home trend matches up with what you can find thrifting! Keep your eye out for mirrors, wall art, furniture and textiles like fabric that you can update to suit your home. Paint can do wonders to make thrifted decorative accents look brand new. You can also check out second hand marketplaces online for local sellers that want to get rid of their old decor.
The dollar store is another unexpected place to find nice home decor items. Like the thrift store, you can use paint, glue and other DIY methods to make the items look more high-end. Look for things like kitchen accessories, baskets, vases, candlesticks, picture frames and faux florals. You can often duplicate looks found at places like Bed Bath & Beyond and H&M Home this way for far less
Buying decor and accessories for your home doesn’t always have to break the bank. Here’s a list of 10 places to find cheap home decor.

The Home Depot
Not only does The Home Depot have building supplies in-store for your DIY projects, but they also have some great home decor pieces as an online retailer. One of my favourite things to buy there (online) are area rugs. They are cheap and there’s a lot of selection and many trendy and classic options for shoppers who don’t mind taking the time to look through them all. You can also look for outdoor furniture & decor, indoor plants, planters, lamps and light fixtures.
HomeSense (Canada) or HomeGoods (USA)
You never know what gems you’ll find at HomeSense or HomeGoods! This is a great place to find finishing touches for your room like area rugs, accessories, lighting, wall art, mirrors, and textiles. They also have a ton of seasonal decor for Christmas, spring and fall. I find HomeSense to be like a thrift shop in that you might get lucky, or you might not. Stalk your closest store every week or two to find the best treasures!
