    I have one of these converting ottomans in my apartment and love it! I can flip the cushion over whenever I want to enjoy a meal. What's great is that these types of ottomans still have storage room for any knick-knacks you have lying around.

    Promising review: "This arrived very quickly and in perfect condition. This multi-purpose ottoman is so easy to put together: just screw in the four legs that were shipped inside the ottoman. The color varies a bit from what's shown on screen; it's a tad less gold and more grayish. The padded trays have fabric handles which make them easy to flip over. It's sturdy enough for me to sit on with lots of room inside for my books. It's great for beverages when needed." —Michele B

    Promising review: "This is one of the most beautiful items I have seen and it was super easy to assemble. It comes in a series of parts that screw together so precisely that the joints cannot be seen once together. It's amazing quality for the price. The floor switch is also a nice feature: you simply step on it lightly to turn the light on or off. I wanted one like this that wouldn't block views of my wall art and this works perfectly. It's handsome with clean design. The standard base screw in LED bulb gives plenty of light to read by at night." —R. D. Hoag

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99+ (available in two finishes).

    Promising review: "The first thing I noticed was the sleek sheen of the real velvet. I took a seat and was surprised at the mix of support and comfort as I sank into the foam cushions. I discovered three intermediate positions between sitting and sleeping that allowed me to really take a load off my lower back after a long day. When it came to sleeping, I fit effortlessly and comfortably onto the unfolded sofa; the cushion material working just as well as a mattress. I would recommend this to anyone. All of my friends and family have been incredibly impressed with how I've upgraded the aesthetics of my living room." —bauhausbro

    17. A corner rack you can hang clothes from without making the room feel packed and tiny.


    If you don't have enough closet space (uh, everyone) then these are your go-to! You can use these in bedrooms or in bathrooms for towels.

    Promising review: "I moved into a new house and was lucky enough to get the bedroom with no closet. I was destined for doom. That is until I found this great product. I purchased two bars and placed one above the other. I couldn't be happier with the result. Each bar holds a significant amount of weight. I packed each bar full with heavy clothes and it continues to prove how sturdy it is."Sarah
