Being able to actually see furniture and wall art in your space before bringing them home from the store or hitting "confirm order" online would save so much time. And while some stores have cool gadgets to make it a bit easier for you (like Walmart's shop the room tool), nothing's foolproof, so having the ability to exchange things is absolutely necessary.

Thankfully, most of your favorite home stores have pretty flexible return policies. To pull one out of the bunch, Ikea's is quite simply a dream...and Target? Well, theirs isn't half bad either. Needless to say, you don't have to worry so much the next time you bring home a rug that's too small for your room or a chair that looks too bulky next to your fiddle leaf fig tree. Save yourself the headache and pin the below chart for your future reference—and, of course, read on for more info on each store's return policies.
