Since moving into a new home nine months ago I’ve been planning, designing, styling, pinning, shopping, and searching for the perfect products and pieces to include in each room. Home design and styling is a personal passion and hobby for me — I love the hunt of finding the perfect rug, the dreamiest bedding, and the perfect full-length mirror. But sometimes my style tastes are bigger than my budget and I’ve had to get creative and learn patience when it comes to hunting for the perfect pieces. But, I’ve found a source for my high-style tastes that fall within my budget-friendly constraints: eBay.
One of my favorite updates in our master bedroom is our rug. Rug shopping is always depressing for me because the rugs I love are usually WAY out of my price range. And when you need a large area rug, the prices can be astronomical. So, I comparison shopped and looked in places you might not think of looking — and I found my dream rug within my realistic budget on eBay. It is a beautiful, high quality rug and it is the perfect size to cover most of our master hardwood floor, leaving 1-2 feet of wood border all around the perimeter of the room. And best of all, the rug was around 80% cheaper than everywhere else I had looked. Oh, and it shipped for free, as most of their large items do. They actually have over 900k rugs in their inventory and 90% of them ship for free. Score!
Our large area rug was the piece that pulled our whole master together. We already had furniture and bedding. Now all we needed were a few small pieces to complete the styling of the room. Since I had such luck finding our rug, I looked for some small decor items on eBay Home as well. I added a Himalayan Salt Lamp and a giant Palm Leaf to the room to give warmth and texture. Salt Lamps work as natural air purifiers, so they are great to include in bedrooms in combination with plants or on their own. And I typically am not a fan of fake plants (to me they create and collect dust instead of helping to clean the air like live house plants). But I loved the addition of the giant palm leaf — it is easy to dust and lasts forever vs. a cut leaf that would die.
Another item that you should definitely check for on eBay is luxury bedding. Pottery Barn sheets are my absolute favorite and I was able to find my favorite ones brand new at discounted prices on eBay. Category pages make it easy to browse and shop for your favorite brands, find on-trend pieces and the best price.
And don’t forget to check their decor section for affordable frames for photography and artwork you want to hang in your space. The addition of those items that are all available on eBay provided the perfect updates to complete our master bedroom. I’m still hunting for the perfect end-of-the-bed bench and I’m hopeful I’ll have luck finding it on eBay as well thanks to their large selection of furniture from brands like Design Within Reach, IKEA, and Restoration Hardware.
Did you know that you could find such a broad selection of home items on eBay? Have you sourced any products for your home from there? Do you plan to? The selection, value, free shipping and ease of shopping made me feel like this was a secret source that I never knew about and now I’m sharing it with everyone and can’t wait to share more eBay finds with you all.
