The Best Bargain Homeware Stores in Hong Kong

By Sophie Pettit 28 September 2018
Decking out your entire apartment can feel like a real chore, especially when you're on a tight budget, living in one of the most expensive cities in the world. But thankfully, there are some excellent low-cost stores that are packed with all the cooking utensils, electrical appliances, and soft furnishings you need to make yourself feel right at home – without breaking the bank. Here are some of our favourites. Happy homemaking.

An obvious choice we know, but the truth is you'll be hard pressed to find a single apartment in Hong Kong that doesn't feature at least one piece of IKEA furniture. This haven of homeware goodies offers pretty much everything you could possibly need to make your flat a cosy home, conveniently arranged by room. From beds, wardrobes, and sofas, to lighting, fixtures, and even children's toys, you might be coming out with more than you bargained for. And then, of course, there are those devilishly tasty meatballs in the café to munch on afterwards. Our advice would be to make a strict shopping list and stick to it. Four locations around Hong Kong, click here to find the nearest

Japan Home Centre (JHC)

With 256 branches scattered across Hong Kong, Kowloon, and the New Territories, you’re never far away from a JHC store. With shelves of colourful, playful, and unbelievably cheap goodies for the home, you could easily deck out your entire kitchen and beyond in one fell swoop. Here you can pick up vibrant bowls, chopping boards, frying pans, and cute mugs for as little as $12 a pop. JHC also stocks homeware essentials such as towels, quilts, pillows, and even clothing rails, making it one of the best bargain stores around. Click here for locations


This bargain shop offers all the essential homeware goodies you need – from pots and pans to furniture, storage, and bedding. You will also find novelty tools such as banana slicers and animal-shaped timers with reasonable price tags. If you’re on the lookout for larger kitchen appliances such as rice cookers, cooking stoves, grills, or refrigerators, then this is the store for you. With around 30 branches dotted around Hong Kong, you won’t have to venture too far to find this one-stop-shop to stock up your home. Click here for locations
