Finding pieces for your kitchen and dining room is often easier said than done. The problem is that there are simply too many options. Too many brands, too many stores, and far too many colors, materials, and price points to choose from. It can all be so overwhelming that you might not even know where to start. (How about nowhere?)

Fortunately, we’re here to help. We’re narrowing down the options by sharing our 28 favorite places to buy kitchen and dining wares. Call it your ultimate shopping resource, if you will.

Happy shopping!

Where to Buy Everything in One Place

1. Amazon ($)

Amazon is often regarded as “The Everything Store” — and for good reason. This one-stop site has thousands (hundreds of thousands?) of brands and items to choose from. Have something in mind? There’s a good chance Amazon sells it — at a fair price, no less. And if you’re a Prime member, you can get that sweet expedited shipping and all sorts of groceries.

2. Target ($)

Target might have great deals on everyday finds, but its main bragging rights come from its stylish and abundant signature brands. From Opalhouse’s boho chic vibe to Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Hearth & Hand to the simple IKEA-like Made By Design, Target’s inventory appeals to all styles.

3. Walmart ($)

Looking for low, low prices? Walmart will probably be your best bet. It’s also THE place to find Pioneer Woman appliances and tabletop items. And we’re obsessed with their new-ish MoDRN line.

For the past 61 years, Cost Plus World Market has been dedicated to bringing affordable wares from all around the world straight to your doorstep. Whether you’re in the market for dining room furniture, pretty plates, or international snacks, World Market has you covered.

5. Overstock ($)

With new deals almost daily, Overstock is a great destination for buying both big and small items. We love their furniture selection, their area rugs, dinnerware, and so much more.

6. Joss & Main ($$)

As Joss & Main proves, a well-curated kitchen doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg. Whether you’re looking for a toaster oven or table linens, this option will make sure you’re outfitting your kitchen in style — minus the sticker shock.

7. Wayfair ($$)

If you haven’t found what you’re looking for at Joss & Main, its sister site, Wayfair, might help. In addition to wonderful kitchen wares, Wayfair offers price adjustments up to seven days after your purchase.

Where to Buy Small Appliances and Cooking Gadgets

As far as we’re concerned, the “beyond” part in Bed, Bath & Beyond definitely refers to the kitchen. The chain stocks all the biggest name brands and many of them can be purchased with those iconic blue coupons.

9. Best Buy ($$)

You might think of Best Buy as the ultimate destination for laptops and surround-sound speakers, but it also has its fair share of dishwashers, refrigerators, and espresso machines. And, of course, a pint-sized television so you can find watch your favorite cooking shows as you whip up something delicious. Finally, one place to build the groundwork for a truly exceptional kitchen.

10. Jet

This site is essentially Walmart’s version of Amazon and a good place to find any and all appliances. It’s also where you can find, say, a small bottle of ketchup instead of a giant case. (Looking at you, Amazon!)

Where to Buy Dining Room Furniture

11. West Elm ($$$)

Don’t be fooled by West Elm’s sleek, mid-century modern flair. The brand is known for that style, but it’s really got stuff that can work in other ways, too.

12. IKEA ($$)

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, with no massive blue shopping bags in sight, you know that IKEA is one of the most cherished retailers for inexpensive, Scandinavian-inspired home décor. Cheap and chic, IKEA ticks all the boxes on our wish list.

13. Article ($$)

Anything you buy from this site is going to get comments from visitors. Because everything here looks way more expensive than it really is.

14. Pottery Barn ($$$)

Admittedly, Pottery Barn isn’t the cheapest option around, but its status as one of the most popular furniture brands around makes it a must-visit.

Where to Buy Dinnerware

15. Anthropologie ($$$)

Love prints, bold colors, and the occasional animal motif? Anthropologie’s dinnerware is calling your name. Beyond the quirky stuff, there’s also plenty of inventory that’s equal parts pretty and practical.

16. East Fork ($$)

East Fork might have a slew of stylish ceramics, but its signature mug is a clear favorite. Not only does this mug sell out frequently, but it also has its own Instagram hashtag. Grab yourself one and post a pic with #TheMug.

17. Snowe ($$)

After being frustrated by the lack of well-designed (and attainable!) home essentials out there, Rachel Cohen and Andrés Modak decided to create pieces that deftly marry high quality with a low price point. Highlights include luxe stemware, pristine plates, and marvelously metallic flatware.

18. Food52  ($$)

With an inventory chock-full of small, up-and-coming vendors, every single item in Food52’s shop is as gorgeous as it is functional.

Where to Buy Cookware

19. Williams Sonoma ($$$)

With plenty of pots, pans, and utensils on its site, Williams Sonoma is a great place for anyone looking for chef-worthy supplies.

20. Sur la Table ($$$)

In addition to its array of cookware, Sur la Table offers a range of cooking classes that will turn anyone into a pro. You know, so you actually put your brand-new cookware to use.

21. Material ($$)

As far as Material founder Eunice Byun is concerned, you don’t need a kitchen full of superfluous ladles, spatulas, and knives. Instead, you really need just a few pieces. Material eliminated the guesswork by creating a curated set of essential items. All you need to do is add it to your cart.

23. Great Jones ($$)

Founders Maddy Moelis and Sierra Tishgart cut through the noise with a line that marries form and function. Oh, and did we mention you can buy an entire cookware set for under $400? And they have the most gorgeous Dutch oven.

23. Misen ($$)

It doesn’t matter if you’re a culinary genius or a humble home cook, a set of ultra-sharp knives are an essential part of any chef’s arsenal. Misen offers Michelin star-worthy prices for fast-casual eatery prices.

Where to Buy Linens

24. Zara Home ($)

You know (and love!) Zara for its affordable, fast fashion clothes and accessories, but you might not be aware that the store has its very own home décor line. While Zara has plenty of trays and glassware, its assortment of kitchen linens brings the trendiness of your closet straight to your table.

25. Coyuchi ($$)

Want to give your kitchen a sustainable edge? Check out Coyuchi. This Cali-cool brand is committed to creating beautiful linens that look good and do good for the environment. From organically grown fibers to ethical manufacturing processes, Mother Nature would be proud of Coyuchi’s table runner and cloth napkins.

26. Sferra ($$$)

Sometimes, all you really need is the classics. Founded in 1891, Sferra has been making top-tiered home linens for generations. We’ll be the first ones to admit that Sferra’s wares are by no means cheap; however, it’s one of those brands to keep on your shortlist come the holidays or for your wedding registry.

27. Etsy ($$)

Etsy is known for its hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind finds; however, even we have to admit that scouring the site’s plentiful listings can feel endless. If you want to narrow down your search, feast your eyes on Etsy’s immaculate table linens, spanning across a variety of colors, styles, and price points.

28. Parachute ($$)

Although this brand first launched with bedding, Parachute recently reimagined its breezy, neutral palette into table runners, placemats, and napkins.
