IKEA Obsessive? You'll Love These Affordable Alternatives
While IKEA has traditionally been the go-to for affordable, but equally as stylish interiors, there are an array of new retailers stepping up their homewares game and are providing some serious competition for the Swedish design giant.
A handful of these retailers will already be on your shopping radar (Kmart and Zara Home, we’re looking at you), while some unexpected names will need to be added bank account-approved black book. Sourcing on-trend bargains is one of our all-time favourite pastimes and the reason these retail gems are some of our most-visited sites. Scroll on, bookmark these sites, and enjoy guilt-free shopping every time—don’t mind if we do!
While this Swedish retail company isn’t available to buy online in Australia (yet!), its quality, but inexpensive home range deserves a notable mention. If you love classic, monochrome, and neutral interiors, H&M Home will deliver time and time again one taupe linen decorator cushion at a time.
This Australian mega-retailer needs no introduction—we’ve been swooning (and consistently shopping) its on-point home collection for many seasons now. If you’re searching for affordable small occasional pieces, on-trend homewares, and a design-led range of lighting—look no further, seriously. Who needs to spend a fortune on an Instagram-worthy interior when you have Kmart?
Apparently Spotlight isn’t just a fabrics and textiles mecca, the crafty hub also has an impressive range of home goods—hello, dream store! From wall art, rugs, decorator items, kitchen goods, and storage—this one-stop-shop seriously has it all.
Just like its fashion, Zara Home’s collection is extensive, caters for all styles, is super chic, and won’t break the bank—what more could we possibly ask for? Nothing, if you ask us. Ever since Zara Home arrived in Australia and was available for purchase online our lives were changed. The xxx and xxx are currently gracing our wish-list.
