Some of the best offers during the upcoming holiday are found in the Memorial Day furniture sales. With spring in full swing and the colder temperatures behind us, it's a great time to jazz up your outside space with some new furniture and decor for less. There are also big savings on indoor items, such as desks, tables, shelves and more to create the home office of your dreams.

Almost guaranteed to take part in the sales event are familiar faces and big names such as Wayfair, Ashley Homestore, Big Lots, Lowe's and Overstock. These stores always go big for their Memorial Day furniture sales. 

Some of the offers we saw last year included up to 50% off patio furniture and massive discounts of up to $1,000 on desks, sofas, dining tables and beds. And there are always bargains for the budget-conscious, too, with a selection of home decor items from $19 to spruce up your living space.

We'll share all the best sales once they get underway late next month. While no retailers have confirmed their plans just yet, we expect many sales will get underway from around mid-May and run through to the end of the month.

Until then, be sure to bookmark our main Memorial Day sales hub for even more of the top deals across tech.

Memorial Day furniture sales: what to expect

The last time we saw a significant number of furniture deals was during this year's President's Day, so both this event and last year's sale are where we've looked for ideas of what to expect on Memorial Day. 

Retailers such as Ashley Homestore ran a huge sale that featured discounts of up to 40% across various products including sofas, chairs, tables, TV stands and beds. Some of the biggest bargains were also found at Wayfair where various furniture items started from only $27. These are the kinds of offers we think will be repeated in this year's Memorial Day furniture sales.

This should also be a good time to buy outdoor furniture to take full advantage of the better weather ahead and many retailers will make this a big focus of their Memorial Day sales. 

Although it doesn't usually get too involved in the event, we expect this will be the main focus of the Amazon Memorial Day sales. You may be able to come away with entire garden sets that ensure you're ready to host the biggest party of the season for less.

Don't neglect all the specialist retailers such as Big Lots, though, which has previously hosted a huge site-wide sale with up to 50% off all patio items, as well as 25% off Broyhill furniture. In all that, you should find a price cut on some new furniture for the inside and outside of your home, including sofas, beds, desks, tables, chairs and more.

Big Lots: up to 30% off patio furniture
