My husband and I are decidedly opinionated about most things in life, except when it comes to making decisions for our home. We’ve navigated Ikea for three hours, with a toddler in tow, using those teeny, tiny pencils to take careful notes about various items, only to walk out with nothing. We have spent so much time mulling over an armchair that it sells out. Our walls lack any real character because we can rarely decide where to hang anything. It takes fortitude to be as non-committal as the two of us are to home decor.

Sometimes, however, the right sale comes along and forces us to make big decisions. I have a feeling the Wayfair Black Friday sale is shaping up to be just such an event. If you’ve been waiting to take the leap on a new couch, rug, or other investment-type purchase, then you’ll probably be stoked to hear the Wayfair Black Friday sale is offering up to 80 percent off some of the store’s most-popular items.

The Black Friday deals include up to 70 percent off living room furniture like coffee tables, bedroom furniture, outdoor furniture, kitchen and dining furniture, office furniture, lighting, and small and major appliances.

You could give your living room a boost with the Barryknoll Chesterfield Settee, which was $1,299.99 and is now $281.99, and is available in various colors. The Pool Jules Chaise Lounge (originally $849.99) is now $222.99 and makes for a colorful addition to any space. There’s also the Carneal TV Stand which lends a midcentury modern vibe to any room and is now $88.03 (originally $370).

If you’re looking for a bedroom update, then you’ll want to take a look at the Rockaway Upholstered Panel Bed, which is now $215.27 (originally $999.98). With hand-sewn tufted details, the bed is available in seven different colors. There are also multiple nightstands available, including the Rae 2-Drawer Nightstand which is now $196.99 (originally $339.99) and the Kraemer 2-Drawer Nightstand which is now $152.99 (originally $436.80).

The lighting deals are my favorite part of the sale. For the last 10 years, we have held on to a beat-up floor lamp I’ve had since college and it needs to go, stat. That means the Heikkinen 61.75 (now $83.99; originally $119.99) or Morrisonville 61 (now $98.99; originally $218.05) might have a new home soon.

The sale also includes accent furniture starting at $79.99, like the Nobles Storage Ottoman, which is now $143.99 (originally $350.00) and Tabor Fabric Storage Bench, which is now $246.84 (originally) $998.00. You’ll also find 75 percent off comforter and sheet sets, like the Janiyah Duvet Set, now $75.99 (originally $319.99), and Phillip Sheet Set, now $24.46 (originally $114.99).

As for the really steep deals (we’re talking 80 percent off), you’re going to want to check out the area rugs and wall art and decor. Pieces like the Omar Deep Blue Tufted Wool Runner are now $95.90 (was $529.00), and the Noland Handmade Wool Ivory Area Rug is now $93.74 (was $529.05). The 7-Piece Perfect Wall Picture Frame Set (for that gallery wall you’ve been planning) is now $40.89 (originally $99.99), and there are plenty of framed prints to consider, like the “Translucent Color” Framed Oil Painting Print on Canvas, which is now $34.28 (originally $41.99).

Round out your collection with some kitchen essentials — like cookware, dinnerware, and knife sets — for as low as $9.99. I have my eye on the 17-Piece Chef's Classic Stainless Cookware Set, which is now $178.29 (originally $670).
