I’m going to talk about four stores that you may be completely missing out on when it comes to great home decor.

You may have heard of and visited these stores once or twice, but they are underrated when it comes to the home decor they carry. You may want to consider all of these your go-to budget-friendly home decor stores for the future.

1. Kirkland’s

Kirkland's offers a lot of items in the farmhouse, wabi-sabi, japandi, and even boho style. Kirkland's has a lot of ceramics, artwork, rugs, furniture, and dishes. And so it is just a beautiful place to shop because it's so perfectly curated and styled inside.

If you don’t have a Kirkland's near you, they do have an online presence where they frequently switch out their merchandise. They always run sales, coupons, and always have an incentive to buy from there. The prices are comparable to Marshall's and TJ Maxx.

One of my favorite things to shop at Kirkland's is the ceramics. I got this vase for about $50 and then I got an extra 15 or 20 percent off at the register.

I paid $40 for this and it's made of carved wood.

Joann Fabric and Crafts

2. Joann Fabric and Crafts

When you hear Joann Fabric and Crafts, you don't instantly think of home decor. It is a fabric shop and they sell lots of art and floral supplies. But then they have a nicely styled section with home decor.

If you shop at other craft stores, like A.C. Moore, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby, you’ll love Joann for decor. These stores also have tons of frames and custom framing to help with your decorating.

I came across the most beautiful modern pottery that’s so well-priced, plus you typically get 30 percent off with a coupon.

I love their rattan ottoman ($99) and the little cement side tables.

Realistic-looking faux plants

3. Bed, Bath, and Beyond

Bed, Bath, and Beyond has great outdoor furniture and accessories, like this eggnest swing chair, bar carts, and outdoor carpets. You’ll also find really beautiful high-end, realistic-looking faux plants. I also saw great-quality Belgian linen curtains that other stores charge hundreds of dollars for.

Note: Bed, Bath, and Beyond stores may have closed, but you can still order from them online: https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/

Ceramic planters
Burlington home decor

4. Burlington

The Burlington Coat Factory, now just called Burlington, started selling coats years ago and they have branched out over the years. I wasn't expecting to see super modern home decor pieces but there are plenty of hidden gems in this store.

I picked up ceramic planters from Burlington and I thought the price point at around $20 to $25 was excellent compared to Marshall's where they would have been about $10 to $15 more. They do have an online presence so go check them out.

Home decor stores

So give these underrated home decor stores a chance. You don’t always need to rely on HomeGoods or Target for budget-friendly decor.

Let me know if you’ve found any great home decor finds at any of the stores I’ve mentioned. Do you know of any other hidden retail gems when it comes to home decor? Let me know in the comments.
