Find it online: the best interiors websites

Print Friendly

As the summer comes to a close and we start to spend most of our time back indoors, it’s not unusual to look around the house and see a few things that need updating.

If your home is in need of a little spruce up, the internet is a great place to start; you can find heaps of inspiration, great resources to help with the design process and excellent websites where you can buy unique furnishings at a good price.

Whether you’re planning a major interior overhaul, shopping for one or two key pieces or just daydreaming about a someday renovation, we’ve put together a list of some of the best interiors websites to get you started.

For inspiration 

  • Pinterest – Pinterest is a great place to collect inspiration and create your own mood boards as you start planning a new project. Find tips on how to get started with Pinterest here.
  • Houzz – With more than 1.5 million images on the website, Houzz is a one-stop shop for inspiration on any interior design project. You can find great ideas for every room in the house, and if you register as a member can even save your favourite images to reference again later.
  • Ikea Hackers – Swedish design firm Ikea is so ubiquitous that few people in Britain today can claim to have a household free from at least one item from their famous catalogue. If you love the price at Ikea but want something a little more unique, check out Ikea Hackers – this useful website has thousands of photos of people reimagining classic Ikea pieces and making them their own.

For home furnishings

  • Houseology – For upscale furnishings and iconic design, Houseology is a great place to look. From sofas to wallpaper, tableware and bedding, Houseology offers a beautifully curated selection of luxury home furnishings.
  • Loaf – Loaf originally began selling mattresses after its founder struggled to find one for himself that was both comfortable and affordable. Since then, the website has expanded and today has a great selection of relaxed furniture at a reasonable price. With a huge range of fabric options and excellent customer service, Loaf makes shopping for a bed or sofa online feel straightforward and simple.
  • John LewisBritain’s favourite department store is a treasure trove of home furnishings and a great place to consider if you’re updating your home. The website has a huge range of items not sold in store and is as committed to customer service online as it is in real life. Their own-brand linens and towels are particularly high quality; if you’re on a tight budget, wait for seasonal sales to snatch up a bargain.
