So you want to create a little outdoor oasis but you're a little strapped for cash. Don't worry — it doesn't always take a lot of money to look like a million bucks. Here are seven sources for budget outdoor furniture to help you get started.
IKEA: Any time we do a budget furniture roundup, IKEA is bound to appear. Their furniture may not last a lifetime but it'll definitely get you through a few summers. Shown: BROMMÖ Chaise lounge; $59.99.
Wayfair: While there's certainly a share of higher end and mid-range outdoor furniture here, you can also find a generous amount of budget options. Wayfair also offers free shipping, which will help keep costs down. Shown: Crosley Gracie Retro Spring Arm Chair; $99.
Pier 1: Whether in-store or online, this is a great source for traditional wicker outdoor furniture. If shopping online, they offer free shipping on orders over $75. Shown: Casbah Chair; $139.95, currently on sale for $97.96.
World Market: The great thing about World Market is that their furniture ranges from traditional to more modern. Their pieces are already pretty affordable — and they frequently offer discounts. Shown: Cadiz Stacking Chair; $79.98 for a set of 2.
CB2: Their furniture may be a little on the the higher side of budget shopping, but their modern designs are worth a little extra. Plus, if you keep an eye out, CB2 runs sales and discounts on select items. Shown: Rex Dining Chair; $69.95.
Overstock: Bargain shoppers are no doubt already familiar with Overstock. Their outdoor offerings are quite vast, ranging in both style and price. Shown: Indoor/Outdoor Zig Zag Bean Bag Chair Lounger; $121.98.
Target: The big bullseye is another great source for affordable patio furniture. Shown: Keter Rio 3-Piece Resin Patio Conversation Set, $196/set of 3.
