Our top 10 affordable decoration stores (that are not Ikea!)

So it’s a fact you’re moving to Madrid: now you have this new beginning, this new story to start… and this new room to decorate! This is the ultimate list of our top 10 low cost decoration stores that are not IKEA! I mean, we will always rely on Ikea, but here is where we go when we want to give our flat a cool and unique touch keeping it affordable.


I could spend my whole live just wandering in Hema stores, they have really cool stuff for decorating your room, but also convenient things like cheap kitchen appliances such as cooking mixers, baking pans, even cleaning products!


It has to be on the list! In Gran Vía you will find one of the biggest Primark stores of the whole European continent. In the top floor you can get everything for your room, from low price and good quality pillows and duvets to candles and cool photo frames.

El Universo del Hogar

This is also a good option for decorating your room without spending way too much. You will find a couple of stores in the city center, around Sol area. I would recommend the one located in calle Toledo, it’s big and they have cool things!


Similar to Hema, in Zakka you can also find a lot of decoration stuff, like picture frames, letters to put in the wall creating words, candles, jars, etc. There are also several in the city center, for example in calle Fuencarral, or in La Latina.

H&M home

They have cool decoration stuff and nice bedding! It won’t be the cheapest store probably, but you can find great deals sometimes! Check the app and the web to stay up to date about promotions and sales, and in this case is better to buy online, the stores that have Home section in Madrid are not located in the city center.

Flying Tiger

The store from Copenhaguen is a must for decorating your room! It has plenty of cheap stuff for organizing the room, cool kitchen stuff like glasses and plates, nice bathroom organizers, etc. In the city center you can find several Flying Tiger stores, find the one you like the most!


In here, you will find a lot of different things, from clothing to books, and cool decorating stuff like cork maps or scratching maps for decorating your blank walls. There are also several, but the one in Sol (next to Plaza Mayor) and the one in calle Hortaleza are pretty cool, both use to have amazing things.


Høsten style is a mix between Tiger, as it’s also Danish, and Natura. You will find decoration items for your room, bathroom, living area and kitchen, even stationary and gardening stuff!


It’s definitely not as cheap as the previous places, but you will find really creative and unique things, for decorating and also some of them are pretty useful! Prices start low, around 2-3€, but you can find things over 100€ also. To keep it cheap will totally depend on you!

Muy mucho

This store is absolutely lovely, I couldn’t forget about it! One is located in calle Gran Vía (and is pretty good), but the one I recommend the most is located in calle Alcalá, in Salamanca neighborhood. You will find decorating stuff, things for the kitchen, candles, etc., with a relaxed and boho style.
