When Urban Outfitters first opened its home section, I browsed the whole damn thing and made a Pinterest board of all the things I wanted. I started mentally planning my dream house—the very cool, very adult apartment I’d eventually inhabit. (I was in high school at the time.) Years later, I now live in a somewhat cool, somewhat adult apartment, and my affinity for Urban Outfitters’ home section is still going strong. But these days, aesthetic isn’t my only concern—financial practicality is another big one. So when I shop Urban Outfitters home items, I tend to aim for Urban Outfitters home items under $50. (Maybe once I reach very cool, very adult status, I’ll abandon price constraints completely and buy $1,000 chaise-lounges whenever I feel like it. TBD if I’ll ever get there.)
What’s nice? While limiting my home shopping selection to budget-friendly items can seriously truncate my options, that’s never been the case at Urban Outfitters. Sure, the store’s home section is loaded with pretty expensive (by my standards, at least) furniture, but it’s also full of delightful decor at lower price-points. I never find myself leaving the store (or abandoning an online shopping trip) with a complete loss of hope, fingers crossed that I’ll win the lottery sometime soon (a wish I continue to make, despite never playing the lottery). Instead, when I shop Urban Outfitters’ home section, I end up browsing more budget-friendly wares than I know what to do with.
This problem is almost a comedic one to have. “I don’t have enough budget-friendly home stuff to shop,” she cries, until she’s greeted with so many affordable home items that she gets overwhelmed in the opposite direction. Home decor shopping seems too frivolous an affair to be imbued with such a sense of melodrama, but the way we organize our spaces can have an immense impact on our capability to do anything, so I’m giving myself a pass on this one. If reading this article has made you feel like you’ve taken a long, hard look in a very sad mirror, our unofficial guide to cute Urban Outfitters home items under $50 might be just the thing the doctor ordered.
