The 19 Best Wayfair Way Day Deals on Dorm Furniture and Outdoor Entertaining

Credit: Wayfair

If you’re in need of updating pretty much any room in your home, you’re in luck. Wayfair is having its massive annual Way Day Sale featuring up to 80% off rugs, outdoor furniture, home decor, and so much more! We’ve also spotted great deals on cookware (like this KitchenAid stand mixer) and storage and small-space furniture that would be great for dorm rooms or first apartments! 

Plus, the Way Day sale also includes all of Wayfair’s brands, including AllModern, Joss & Main, and Birch Lane, which have some stylish, modern indoor and outdoor furniture on sale. We’ve looked through the top deals and included some of the most popular items on the Wayfair site, but since furniture and personal style can be so personal, we recommend sifting through the sale yourself as well! 

The sale only runs from Saturday, May 4 to Monday, May 6, so shop them while they’re still available!

Our 5 Favorite Way Day Deals

1. Lark Manor Thurleigh Round Sherpa Ottoman

We love storage ottomans as some sneaky dorm room storage, and this sherpa option is as cute as it is functional. It doubles as a seat for guests and they can stuff blankets or extra sheets inside.

2. Nine Stars Steel Motion Sensor Trash Can

3. 17 Stories Dolbeare Abstract Gray Area Rug

A rug in a college dorm room can immediately make it feel more homey. This marbled rug adds a pop of color while tying a living area together. It comes in several sizes, but we recommend the 5’ by 7’ size to best fit a dorm room

4. Sand & Stable Solid Wood Shoe Rack

You can never have too much shoe storage! This wooden rack is stylish and can hold up to 18 pairs of shoes—and the top rack could even be used to house decorations or a bowl to hold keys. It’s great for a first college apartment or if you need more shoe storage.

5. Alwyn Home Quilted Fitted Mattress Pad
