    We asked the BuzzFeed Community to share the best piece of home decor they've ever bought. Here are their best recommendations:

    1. An elephant basket you'll use a ~ton~ as you fill it with blankets and other miscellaneous things you have in your living room.


    "I bought this super cute elephant basket at target because it was on sale and elephants are my favorite animal." —bavanij3

    Get it from Target for $24.99.

    2. A mid-century-inspired nightstand that's worth the splurge because you'll use it for YEARS.

    West Elm

    "I’ve had this bedside table for four years now, and I still love it. Because my studio apartment is truly *tiny*, these days it serves both as my bedside table and a side table to my couch. It’s beautiful and the two drawers are surprisingly roomy!" —Natalie Brown

    Get it from West Elm for $299.

    3. A dining bench to take advantage of all the space your table has to offer. Who says you have to stick to only having regular chairs? Once you try a bench, you may never go back.


    "Everyone falls in love with this dining bench when they see and sit on it." —stephaa

    Get it from Walmart for $69.

    4. A storage ottoman with serving trays that can act as a coffee table, table, and more in a small apartment.


    "I can't fit a table in my apartment, so my storage ottoman with trays takes the place of that. Plus, it has storage space, and is comfy as a foot rest." —Alexandra Napoli

    This one has three flip-over serving trays and is made of faux-leather upholstery with a modern flair.

    Get it from Amazon for $119+ (available in black and brown).

    5. An entry way mirror to reflect light and make it feel bigger than it actually is.


    "My entry way is very dark, so it feels stuffy when you come in. The only window is out back into a pretty dark backyard. So, I bought a giant mirror to reflect the light and opens up the room. Plus, I know I look good (or terrible) when I leave the house!"—sophiac49d3b2d4c

    This 37-inch diameter mirror has a rubber frame that doubles as a protective bumper. Not only does it reflect light and make the room it's in brighter, it also makes it look bigger.

    Get it from Amazon for $141.11 (available in four sizes and four colors).

    6. A color-coded bookshelf that'll make you feel like your home is put together, even if your personal life is not.


    "I love my color-coded bookshelf. I did mine myself, but you can actually buy books already color coded to make it easier." —Heather Braga

    Get it from jaysworld on Etsy for $39.95 per foot.

    7. A small table that can be used as a stool, bench, or as the kid's table when holidays roll around. The possibilities are endless.


    "I bought a small table years ago. It's about the size of a desk for a kindergartner, but holy crap is it useful. It's the perfect size to be a table and sturdy enough to double as a step stool or bench. I've moved all around the world since I bought it 8 years ago, and with each move I would generally get rid of most of my furniture to buy new stuff there, but I kept that stool."—fredzesty

    This one is made of premium wood, so it's sturdy and can handle a lot.

    Get it from Amazon for $95.69 (available in four sizes and two leg heights).

    8. A jewelry storage mirror for anyone who has a jewelry collection that keeps growing. You'll have ample space to keep everything organized so you can find exactly what you're looking for when you're getting ready in the morning.


    "I have a jewelry storage floor mirror and absolutely love it. I think it's a must have in any accessory lover's home!"—Katy Herman

    This one has a 42" mirror and four angle tilting positions. It also has erring slots, earring holes, necklace and bracelet hooks, ring slots, and bracelet and watches slots.

    Get it from Amazon for $109.79+ (available in brown and white).

    9. An entryway organizer you put on your wall to help keep your keys, mail, magazines, and life together.

    "I got an entryway organizer to use for mail and magazines. It's a great place to keep things, doesn't take up much space since it's nailed to the wall, and is also the place I hang my keys when I walk in every day. If I didn't have it, my mail would be piled on my dresser, and instead its neatly tucked out of the way until I actually pay bills." —Alexandra Napoli

    This on has three metal hooks, a shelf and a slot to hold mail and more. It also comes with wall mounting screws and anchors.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in two varieties).

    10. An Alex drawer unit from IKEA because I'm convinced keeping your home organized will help you live a happier life.



    This piece is designed to support a desk or stand alone. It has five drawers you can fill with all the supplies you have and keep your office (or any other room of your home) organized and clean.

    Get it from IKEA for $69+ (available in five colors).

    11. An acrylic coffee table worth the investment because it will look good in basically any style living room you might have over the next decade (or longer).


    "I wanted an acrylic coffee table forever, and it's still my favorite thing like 3 years after buying it." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Get it from CB2 for $279.

    12. Some houseplants to add some greenery, life, and a breath of fresh air to your home.,

    "I love my houseplants. I have over 20 plants throughout my house. I started with succulents because they’re easier to keep alive, but my ferns and monsteras are my faves."—comicbooksandtiaras

    These succulents are a great introduction to plant life. These 2-inch little babies are unique and easy to take care of. You can use them all around your home as decor and to add a fun touch.

    Get a five-pack from Amazon for $16.95.

    13. A beautiful statement couch to make your living room truly ~pop~ with color.


    "I got this this couch from Wayfair, and it’s such a beautiful pop of color in the room." —natalieg4ddc17d7f

    Get it from Wayfair for $320.99 (available in eight colors).

    14. A mirrored jewelry armoire you can use to store more than just jewelry and as a way to make sure your outfit looks good when you get dressed in the morning.

    Pier 1

    "I bought this jewelry armoire on sale. I actually use it for my extensive makeup collection though. I like that it's not the same old makeup storage everyone gets, and it adds glam to my every day routine!" —vavavroom

    Get it from Pier 1 for $404.95 (available in silver and brown).

    15. A mini orange chandelier that'll be the focal point of the *room* as well as the focal point in your *mind* even after you move.

    "I had an orange chandelier in the house I used to live in. The dining room was the first room I fully redecorated after we moved in. I had an orange accent wall in my kitchen, and I decided I wanted orange everywhere without going nuts. The chandelier was the final touch to this room and, it really tied the room together. I miss it." —michellecarpentierp

    Get it from The Home Depot for $61.57 (available in gold and orange).

    16. A beautiful floor lamp that won't break your budget and provide a room with tons of extra light.

    "I got this lamp when I moved into my apartment because I liked the style of it, but I ended up loving how much light it added to my living room. It was super easy to install and has a button to turn it on and off on the ground (so you can just step on it). It was so each, and it looks so chic, people think I got it from a much fancier store!" —Abby Kass

    Get it from Amazon for $74.99 (available in antique brass and rose gold).
