Surrounding yourself with who and what you love might just be the best thing you can do for yourself. And while this might refer to your loved ones and hobbies, it can also pertain to your furniture. Elevating your home is paramount and the furniture that fills its rooms is a huge contributing factor in creating a safe space you can come home to.

It can get, to an extent, overwhelming and costly when choosing furniture for your home.

Whether your home décor style is Scandinavian, modern, or classic, there are tons of brands out there that offer affordable options for furniture.

Whether you’re furnishing a home for the first time or looking for a refresh, check out these furniture brands that satisfy major furniture goals.

How to Shop for Furniture

Start with your big pieces and go from there. Many home experts suggest spending the majority of your budget on your main pieces that will last for years. Think couches, dressers, beds, dining sets, etc. Unless your style is eclectic and bold, going with more neutral colors for these pieces so that you can play around with style and trends through décor pieces and accents are recommended.

When it comes to apartment living, you’d want furniture that is affordable, multi-functional, and easy to move. If you’ve ever moved multiple times, you know that a move can take a toll on your furniture. With brands like Floyd, Burrow, and Thuma, you can easily disassemble furniture, which reduces the chance of damage when moving.
