It's tough to resist the thrill of a good deal, and that's especially true when it comes to shopping for home goods. Aside from the expenses of keeping a roof over your head—like securing a downpayment or saving up for a hefty security deposit—big furniture items are usually costly, too. That's why it's fun to fill in the details of a home with items that add interest without breaking the bank. And the search for budget-friendly pieces can be as satisfying as having them on display, too. 

We went to some of our favorite stores for attainable prices, like Target, West Elm, Cost Plus World Market, and H&M, to seek out 20 cheap decor items under $100 that still look expensive. From a woven basket for a living room, to an electric kettle for the kitchen, to a clay pot and stand for a dining room, these finds cover every room of the home and promise to deliver eye-catching style for little money. Read on to see our picks, and see why they deserve your well-earned cash. As you browse, you might come across more than one thing that's sure to give you a thrill.
