Giving your home a makeover doesn’t have to be expensive. Armed with some know how, a few small touches and eShopoly’s Every Day Low Prices on home furnishings and decor, you can breathe new life into your living space whether it be with fresh furniture like a bedroom set or something functional like a new bookshelf.
Are you rethinking your current living room? A new television is always a nice addition, but you may want a new sofa, arm chair or accent table first. When considering what furniture to buy, think about the space you have available and the look you want for the room.
Possibly the most important piece of furniture in your living room will be the sofa. If you have a lot of space to work with, look for a big sofa that can accommodate your family and guests. If you don’t have much space, look for something more compact, possibly even a loveseat. For additional seating (again, depending on how much space you have), you can add a loveseat, recliner or armless chair. An accent table and an ottoman can add functionality and style too.
If you don’t have a lot of interior design experience and you want a consistent look throughout the room, consider getting a living room furniture set. Living room sets come with different pieces to fit different spaces, so you can choose one that best serves your needs.
You can also refresh the look of the room with smaller changes. Try reframing your pictures, adding some wall art or getting a new slipcover for the couch if you don’t want to buy a new sofa. Decorative accent pillows are a great, inexpensive way to give your living room some personality as well.
Stackable modular storage cubes are a simple design solution and they’re eco-friendly. Cubes are an excellent home organizer for your modern living space. Each one is separate so you can stack them side by side or on top of each other, or you can get creative and build a pyramid or ladder design. You can also mix and match the colors or just keep it simple with a single shade.
Getting a new set of bedding is a great way to give your bedroom a quick makeover, while providing the warmth and comfort you need. When picking out bedding, consider the size of your mattress, the climate and weather where you live, the material you want and whether you’d prefer a bedding set or separates.
Bedding comes in the same sizes as mattresses (single, double, twin, full, queen, king and so on) so it’s easy to match your sheets and blankets to your mattress size. For colder weather, choose bedding that is thicker, like a down duvet or comforter, and consider flannel-weave sheets if you tend to get cold more easily. For warmer weather, look for lighter top bedding and percale-weave or silk sheets. Cotton is the most popular material for sheets, but there are many varieties to pick from, including Pima and Egyptian cottons, both of which are extremely comfortable and luxurious. You can also choose from a variety of weaves, including percale, which is very soft, smooth and shiny.
Your kitchen and dining area make up the heart of your home. Let’s face it, with three meals per day, you spend a lot of time there eating, not to mention the time it takes to prepare the meals. With kitchenware, dinnerware, kitchen furniture and more from eShopoly, you can make these areas functional, welcoming spaces for the entire family.
The kitchen can easily be made more inviting by adding a fresh coat of paint to the cabinets and walls. For finishing touches, get some color-coordinated kitchen towels or potholders, and place a new plant in the kitchen window.
Keep your kitchen neat and organized with storage and organization products, including pantries, racks, cabinet and counter organizers and food storage containers . Handy products like these make it easier to find what you need when you need it, so you can prepare meals with less confusion and frustration. Complete sets of pots & pans , and knives make cooking easier, whether you’re prepping for your family or a crowd. And if you like to bake, it’s worth stocking up on bakeware, so you always have what you need.
New window treatments and lighting can really pick up the atmosphere throughout your home. Choose window furnishings that add both color and style and let in the natural light from your outdoor surroundings. Then use accent lights to highlight your favorite keepsakes and add light fixtures that complement your decor.

It’s a fact of life that at some point, one or more of the appliances in your home is going to need to be replaced. Or perhaps you’re outfitting a new home or apartment and starting from scratch. This includes your large appliances like refrigerators and dishwashers as well as smaller appliances that make your time in the kitchen or when cleaning much simpler. When these items are relatively new and hopefully covered under some kind of warranty it makes sense to get them repaired when they malfunction. However, there comes a time when you must decide to replace a failing appliance with a brand new or refurbished one, and that is where we can help with low prices, every day, on everything.
Similar to a vehicle or other large-scale appliances, it pays to know what to look for when choosing a refrigerator for your kitchen or other spot in your home. For example, with refrigerators, it pays to know what to look for, such as how many doors you want, where you want the freezer to be situated, whether you want an external ice maker, water dispenser and amenities designed to keep your food fresher for longer periods of time. Size is a major consideration, as our refrigerators run as small as 1.7 cubic feet, which are ideal for offices, dorm rooms and man caves, to 26 cubic feet or more for full-size units. Other considerations, such as color, width, brand and ENERGY STAR rating are important as well.
The same care when choosing a large appliance should be done for smaller appliances as well. For example, it seems almost expected for a toaster to work forever, and most do last a long time. However, if you have recently moved and are trying to match a certain color scheme or simply want to upgrade to the latest technology, there are important things to consider when selecting a toaster too. For example, do you want it to be a two-slice or four-slice toaster, should it have manual timing or digital, and should it be a certain color or does stainless steel work with your decor? You could even choose a toaster oven that doubles as a toaster, giving you an appliance that does double duty in your kitchen.
Speaking of versatile appliances, none are more versatile in the kitchen than microwave ovens. These devices have come a long way from the days of the Radar Range. Microwaves not only reheat your food and beverages with electromagnetic waves (in other words, microwaves), but many also offer convection capabilities as well. No longer are they just for popping popcorn or heating TV dinners. Now, you can cook entire meals with just a microwave and do other tasks as well, such as defrosting frozen food and softening butter. Microwaves typically are available in three forms: countertop, over-the-range and built-in. Again, there are factors to consider regarding your choice of microwave, and we have many from which you can choose. We have units that are small having a cooking space of 0.9 cubic feet or less to 1.4 cubic feet or more. Wattage is another consideration, and we have models that range from less than 700 watts to more than 1,000 watts – the higher the wattage, the quicker your foods are heated, essentially.
Appliances aren’t exclusive to your kitchen. Many people like the convenience of having their own washing machine and dryer rather than making trips to the Laundromat or on-site laundry facility. We can help with these choices as well. For example, apartment dwellers who don’t have room for a traditional-sized washer and dryer can select all-in-one units that work side by side, stack on top of each other or portable units that are Jamaicable on a countertop. For standard washers and dryers, considerations include top-loading or front-loading, capacity, overall size and brand.
Another appliance that is often overlooked until it malfunctions is a vacuum cleaner. There have been many advances made in the making of vacuum cleaners, and it is not just limited to style. The variations here range from canister, uprights, stick and even handheld and robotic vacuum cleaners. There are also units that are ideal for doing deep carpet cleanings, including extractors sometimes known as steam machines and shampooers. There are even some vacuums specific to picking up pet hair and dander. For the do-it-yourselfer, there are also wet-dry vacuums that are ideal for working in the garage, shop or anywhere there is a need to vacuum up heavy-duty materials or liquids. Important considerations for vacuum cleaners focus on the surfaces to be cleaned, whether the unit is bagless or not, height, color and available accessories. We feature many brands of vacuum cleaners, and finding one that is ideal for your space is simple.
One appliance that is crucial to upping the comfort level of your home is an air conditioner. Although many people live in homes with central air conditioning, many do not and that is where we can help. We offer units that fit snugly in a window and can keep several rooms cool at one time, and portable air conditioners ideal for keeping a single room at the desired temperature. Factors to consider when choosing an air conditioner include the coverage area to be cooled, the size of the space (if choosing a window unit) and the number of BTUs the unit possesses. BTUs refers to the amount of heat an air conditioner can remove from a room per hour, with up to 5,400 BTUs recommended for small rooms (150 square feet) and 32,000 BTUs for covering 1,600 square feet. As with most products of this nature, be sure to look for the ENERGY STAR label to ensure you are getting a unit that is cost-effective as well.
When having friends and family over for dinner, you want to show off the best that you have to offer. Even if it’s just an intimate dinner for you, your spouse and your kids, you still want things to look their best. Create memorable feasts in your home with quality furnishings, dynamic table settings and tools and appliances that show that you’re a master chef in the kitchen. Save money on the purchases you need to make this happen with our Every Day Low Prices on everything we sell, including kitchen and dining items.

The tables come in many shapes, such as round, square, oval and rectangular, in sizes that range from less than 30 inches long to more than 100 inches and heights that range from 15 inches or less to more than 31 inches. Match the style of your dining set to that of the rest of your home with contemporary, modern, rustic or transitional styles. You can also buy the table and chairs separately and mix and match them as you see fit. There are other pieces in matching styles you can add to your dining area as well.
These chairs with long legs are placed alongside kitchen counters, freestanding bars and pass-through windows for guests to sit at. Some just have a seat, while others have high backs, too.
Pub tables These are small tables that are round, square or other shapes and have long legs and usually two modest chairs that have slightly longer legs than dining chairs. These can also serve as bistro sets and breakfast tables.
When you need additional serving space, such as for holiday meals, sideboards and buffets make it possible to keep dishes close to the dinner table. These are stationary cabinets that rest along a wall near the dining table. When not in use, they can serve as a place for candles, plants and knickknacks.
China cabinets These are tall, multi-shelf cabinets with decorative wood and glass doors that allow you to display fine china, crystal and family heirlooms in a safe, dust-free environment.
Bakers’ racks Bakers’ racks can either go in a kitchen or dining area, and are tall, narrow metal racks for placing pots, pans and other kitchen tools on. Some have hooks for hanging pots and pans, and all have two or three shelves for storage. Some also come with a wine bottle rack.
Bars, bar cabinets and wine cabinets Safely and discreetly store your alcohol and wine bottles behind a freestanding bar or bar/wine cabinet. These make alcohol, mixers, bar tools and glasses accessible when company drops by. Wine cabinets put your wine collection on display, allowing you to lay the bottles down to help preserve them. These cabinets hold as few as 6 bottles of wine to as many as 40 or more.
When guests come over to share a meal, you want to have the best dinnerware, drinkware and utensils at your disposal to grace your table.
Dinnerware Dinnerware is available in sets that include dinner plates, salad plates or saucers, bowls and cups. Sets begin with four of each item, with many having eight of each item.

Many glass sets feature different glass sizes in sets of eight or more. Tumblers and thermal mugs are sold individually.
Serveware Serving trays, bowls and plates are available individually or as part of sets. Trays can hold individual items or are compartmentalized to hold six or more different items. These items can be made from porcelain, ceramic, metal, wood, stone and other materials.
Utensils Most flatware sets feature multiple table knives, salad forks, dinner forks, soup spoons and dinner spoons. These sets have enough for at least 4 settings and as many as 12 or more. You can also buy sets of utensils by themselves.
Salt and pepper shakers and mills To keep your food well-seasoned, you want nice-looking salt and pepper shakers or mills on your tables. These are available in many forms, including metal, glass, stainless steel, wood, porcelain and aluminum. Some mills are hand-operated and others are battery-powered. For your breakfast table, you can add a sugar dispenser for your cereal or oatmeal.
