Contrary to what most people think, you don't have to be rich to have an expensive-looking home. While having designer and high-end pieces are a welcome bonus, they aren't a necessity—you can utilize a mix of mid-range and low-priced pieces for an ultimately affordable yet totally chic display. 

Thankfully, there are plenty of home retailers nowadays that offer beautiful pieces that don't cost an arm and a leg. Armed with a keen eye and strong styling skills, get excited to hunt for hidden gems at these hot spots: 

Miniso

Originally from Tokyo, Miniso was built by two smart entrepreneurs namely Miyake Jyunya and Ye Guofu in 2013. Together, they wanted to create a brand that pursues a “simple, natural and high-quality” philosophy without raising the price tags. From cosmetics to gadgets and kitchen essentials, Miniso takes pride in handpicking the products they carry from different countries including Korea, Singapore, Malaysia and China to provide customers with a recreational shopping experience. 

Find Miniso at Gateway Tower Mall, Robinsons Place Manila, SM City San Lazaro, SM Southmall, and Lucky Chinatown Mall. Click here for the complete list of branches.

Mumuso

If you've been to Korea or Hong Kong, Mumuso might be a familar brand to you. With hundreds of outlets all over the world, it's impossible not to get excited that this concept franchise has finally reached our shores. Similar to other leisure-lifestyle brands, Mumuso adheres to a wholistic lifestyle—they emphasize on quality while maintaining affordability. They also offer a wide range of personal and home products so it won't be hard to find something for everyone.

Find Mumuso at Lucky Chinatown Mall, Farmer's Plaza, UP Town Center, Eastwood Mall, Ayala Malls' The 30th and Venice Grand Canal. 

Daiso Japan

Daiso Japan is a gold mine of reasonably priced finds. Although more famous for their 100 yen stores, they have started to develop items that offer more variety at different price points to be able t0 cater to every budget. They carry fun stationery products, toys, quirky home decor pieces including succulent candles (as seen in photo), gardening tools, pet food, kitchenware and many more starting at P88—what more could you ask for, right?

My Dollar Store

Hidden in a quiet corner in Cubao is My Dollar Store—an underrated hub for pocket-friendly items that span from snacks to home knickknacks. It's not hard to get lost in aisles of one-of-a-kind finds from the US and be tempted to hoard everything so make sure to go through your loot twice before heading to the cashier!
