Dunelm: when you're looking for great value furniture
While we may think of Dunelm as a go-to homeware shop for larger pieces of furniture including beds, wardrobes and dining tables, it’s worth checking out their more specialised features including their wedding section.

If you’re not quite at the interior design stage, and your weekends consist of plastering, painting and furniture building, trusty stores such as B&Q are on hand to help. While they have the necessary tools including paintbrushes, drill sets and saws for the nitty-gritty tasks, you can also find simple and affordable home accessories including wall clocks and artwork if you want to bulk out a room without spending a fortune.

We’re also a huge fan of M&S’s bedding – we particularly like their reversible duvet sets and cushions.

Lights 4 Fun: when you're looking for lighting inspiration
Lights 4 Fun was set up in 2003 when its Harrogate-based founder, Tim Naughton, became disillusioned with the expensive, low quality Christmas lights he’d bought from his local garden centre. He decided to go on the search for a better product and after months of research, found a manufacturer in Germany that was producing robust outdoor lights in rubber cabling as an answer to the worst of European winters.
Now, 17 years later, the company sells over 700 different types of high-quality decorative lights, all coming with a two-year guarantee. It’s our go-to for every type of seasonal lighting you can think of – we especially like their TruGlow candle range, and their outdoor lights.
Urban Outfitters: when you're looking for retro ideas
Urban Outfitters online has a great range of boho style bedding, wall hangings and trinkets – it’s also the place to head if you’re after retro-style record players or unusual furniture.
Similar to Anthropologie in style but lower in price, you’ll also find a large range of Himalayan salt lamps, quirky record storage and pretty glassware, along with some great gifts and photo frames.
Arket: when you're looking for Scandi-style
Arket has recently crept onto the interiors scene, and is now a firm favourite amongst popular fashion and homeware bloggers alike.
Championed for its simple and laid-back Nordic design, it’s our one-stop-shop for all things Scandi-style. Although it stocks sturdy, great quality products, it’s actually surprisingly affordable - especially considering its cult following. This is definitely one to check out if you need to stock up on some homeware basics.
If there’s a piece of furniture trending on Instagram, chances are it’s from Made.com. Famous for its iconic velvet sofas, the company is all about producing high-end designs without the high-end price tag, and it regularly collaborates with independent designers as well as its in-house design team.
If you’re looking companies with sustainability points, it’s useful to note that Made.com will only make your item after you’ve purchased it, so there’s no unnecessary waste. This also, however, allows the company to be more experimental and bring out new collections on a very regular basis, so, chances are, there’ll always be a design that you love. Check out their lighting and dining table sets if you’re looking for some standout pieces.
Amara: when you want that statement piece
If you’re looking for something really special, Amara is your one-stop-shop for all things luxury. Starting off as a small boutique in 2005, it now stocks collections from over 300 of the world’s leading luxury home brands, and has won awards for its customer care services.

Paperchase: when you're thinking about your home office
