I remember being a young girl and the home decor catalogs that would come in the mail. I would look through them and dream about what I would buy if I were in charge of decorating a house. We didn’t have cable television, so I guess that was my form of entertainment as a kid! But I still enjoy looking through them now, because they’re great sources of inspiration.
I decided to create a list of my favorite cheap home decor catalogs. Most of them are available to view online or you can request they send one to your physical address.
Ikea: You can never go wrong with a book from Ikea. The products they sell are definitely affordable, and they’re a great source of inspiration for ideas on how to decorate a room, even if it’s not in your budget to buy anything at the moment. They have an online catalog, or you can request one to be mailed to you.
Oriental Trading Company: Oh how I loved this catalog as a kid and still love it now as an adult! They don’t sell furniture or linens, but they sure do sell a lot of neat things that could be used for decorating your home inexpensively. For example, I recently ordered a shadow box from them that retails elsewhere for $30 and up – even with shipping costs I beat that price! Great assortment.
Collections Etc. Catalog: This is a neat catalog that has a lot of home decor and accessory items for great prices.
Expressions Home Decor Catalog: There is a lot of variety in different styles and you’re sure to find a lot of great inspiration in this catalog as well.
Home Decorators Collection: Here’s another great one that is definitely one to sign up for if you enjoy looking at free home decor catalogs for inspiration and affordable ideas.
Lowes/Home Depot: Lowes and Home Depot each put out a free magazine periodically that has lots of great ideas for Do-it-yourself projects and decor inspiration.
Montgomery Wards: I had no idea that they still operated an online store with catalog…sure enough they do! Oh so much inspiration in this one, it is definitely worth checking out.
Terry’s Village: This is another popular free catalog that can give you plenty of inspiration and has cheap prices that can fit a lot of budgets.
Birch Lane: Pictured above, this catalog is a great source for inspiration and products can easily be ordered online.
So these are just a few of my favorite free home decor catalogs that offer up plenty of inspiration while selling products you can actually afford. I hope you enjoy the list – and if there’s any I might have missed please do let me know in the comments section below!
