Nine Of My Favourite Places To Shop Homeware

Posted in Lifestyle
New Buys Table

If you hadn’t guessed by now I am obsessed with homeware, from artwork adorning my walls to pretty cushions and trinket trays scattered throughout my flat. Ever since buying my own flat almost five years ago *where has the time gone?!* I have been buying things left right and centre in a bid to get my flat EXACTLY how I want it to look. I’m always browsing the good old internet for homeware ideas and items because who has the time to go shopping anymore?! Here are some of my favouriteĀ places to browse for homeware items.

H&M

I’m going to start with a pretty obvious one as almost everyone probably owns something from the H&M Home department, and rightly so as it’s one of the best out there. There’s such a good mix of adorable yet practical items and I’ve lost count of the number of cushion covers, storage boxes and trinket trays I have bought from there. Whenever I happen to be on Oxford Street I almost always pop into the store just in case there’s anything new and exciting in there as their ranges tend to change pretty often.

Maison Du Mode

I had never heard of Maison Du Mode until fairly recently when a beautiful rose gold table kept popping up through my Facebook adverts, I just had to have a nosy. Not only is the brand affordable but it’s also great quality and despite shipping coming from France, it’s quick and cheap. Alongside the side table, I bought I added some home accessories such as a candle, a kitchen roll holder, and a vase into my order because their rose gold collection is amazing.

Primark

Primark have well and truly updated their game in the past year or so and their homeware department is a fantastic place. I used to always buy my bedding from there as it was great value – although now I know the value of thread count – and their cushions and trinkets are always so on trend. The great thing is how affordable it is so you can make quite a lot of changes to the decor of somewhere without spending too much, not to mention it’s great for students or those moving houses who need quite a lot of stuff!

Oliver Bonas

If I’m looking for something a little fancier or something really decorative Oliver Bonas is somewhere I love browsing in as they have so many cute trinkets and some stunning furniture, although most of that is outside of my price range. I’m sure everyone’s lusted after the marble or rose gold items which make up a lot of the Oliver Bonas current ranges but they’re a go to if I really want to treat myself.

New Buys Clock

Red Candy

I discovered Red Candy a few months’ ago when I wanted to buy a new clock for my living room and I found this stunning marble and rose gold one which was such a good price. Since then I’ve actually worked with the brand which caused me to browse the site even further and buy some homeware items and general things for around the home. They sell so much and it’s not all big furniture and expensive items which is nice as I change things in my home so quickly I don’t always want to spend a lot of money.

Dunelm

Can you believe I had never been to a Dunelm Store before a few month’s ago?! Me, with my homeware obsession, hadn’t been to the homeware equivalent of Ikea! This is the perfect place for kitchen and bathroom accessories and any form of soft furnishings, I bought some amazing bedding here, and some of the softest towels I have ever felt and for the quality, it’s a really decent price there. There aren’t a huge amount of stores about and they’re in some seemingly random locations but it’s well worth a visit.

Halloween Homeware

Homesense

I would probably say Homesense is one of my favourite places to go to when I’m not quite sure what I’m looking for as there’s always treasures to be found especially around Halloween as their selection of homeware then is amazing. There’s always so many quirky unusual things dotted around and they’re also great for things like candles, diffusers, fake flowers and bathroom storage which are always areas I hit up. While some TKMAXX stores do have the homeware sections I think the stand alone Homesense stores are miles better.

The Range

We first had this store come to Watford a few years ago and I have to admit I now end up spending quite a lot of time here. It’s my absolute favourite place for artwork and frames because there’s so much on offer and I’ve bought quite a lot of my marvel/ superhero style artwork from here which now covers one of the walls in my living room. You can pretty much buy everything here from arts and crafts to dining wear and garden items and it reminds me a lot of a high-quality B&M as the prices are so so reasonable.

Wilko

You can’t go wrong with good old Wilkinson in all honesty, especially for kitchenware. I’ve seen so many items in Wilko for a fraction of the price of everywhere else which is great when you’re just looking for a jug or a utensil. Much like Primark I think they’ve definitely upped their homeware game this year and I think there are so many nice items in the soft furnishings/ ornament ranges, plus they’re one of the best places for bulk buying tea lights because you can never have enough of those.

Do you have any homeware recommendations or sites I should check out?
