Furniture can be really expensive and when you move into your first home you definitely don’t have the money to waste. Some things are worth investing a little bit more money into such as your sofa and bed but others can definitely be bought on a budget. This is where amazon came in handy, there are so many stylish pieces at affordable prices.
The first item I wanted to mention was this industrial style Songmics shelf I’ve got in my living room. It’s a great place to store books and DVD’s or even just decorative bits and was a steal at £45.
Another item in my living room is this navy knitted pouffe footstool that adds a little bit of style and extra comfort. It was slightly expensive at £40 but is definitely cheaper than some of the other ones I’ve seen.
After buying my dining table from Next I was stuck for chairs and just wanted something affordable and modern. I looked for quite a while before coming across these grey plastic ones with black metal legs. They came really quickly and are great quality, especially for the price at £44.95.
This Songmics side table I found matches the shelving unit perfectly, is a great place to store a few magazines and adds to the industrial theme throughout my house. It was a great price at £34.99.
I recently moved into my first house and thought I would share with you some of my top picks from IKEA to help you furnish your home on a budget.
This sleek three drawer Hemnes unit is great for storing clothes and is a steel at £115. There are other sizes available too if you need slightly more or less storage.
Hemnes dressing table
I’ve never owned a dressing table before and didn’t want to spend a fortune so decided to go for the matching Hemnes one for £125 (usually £150 but was discounted with my IKEA family card). I also got the matching ‘tinius’ stool for £20.
Hovslund rugThis grey printed rug for £55 is definitely on my wish list. It would go perfectly under our dining table and add more texture to a plain room.
Brunsta pendant lamp shade
I got the large version of this lampshade for £18 for our hallway and the smaller one for £12 for our upstairs landing; I love how modern and affordable they are.
Fasalt swivel armchair
Mustard yellow features a lot in our house and this swivel armchair would add a great pop of colour to the living room. It retails at £450 which is quite pricey compared to the other items but is such a statement piece.
This sideboard would be perfect in a hallway or dining room and looks a lot more expensive than it is at £350.
