    Promising review: "There really are no words to describe how gorgeous these are. I absolutely adore them! They totally bring life to the entryway between our living and dining room. So happy to have such special pieces in my new home."—Justine Bijas

    Get it from TheSweetKarmaBar on Etsy for $139.

    3. A pack of 24 mandala stencils you can use to personalize pretty much anything you can think of (wall decor, dressers, tabletops, etc.) and turn into a giant art project.

    four images of the mandala stencils being used to decorate: a wall, a table, a dresser, and a planter

    Promising review: "I love these stencils!! I'm decorating my room boho style, and these stencils are exactly what I was looking for." —Lorell Rolon

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

    4. A set of peel-and-stick tiles to create the HGTV backsplash of your dreams. After putting this up, you'll be so enamored with your own kitchen you might lose focus and burn whatever's on the stove — but it's totally worth it.

    Each pack comes with (10) 11.8" x 11.8" self-adhesive sheets.

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in five styles).

    5. A set of fancy brass knobs that'll add some class to you kitchen or bathroom.


    Promising review: "Really love these. They were inexpensive, but look top-notch. We used them in both our bathrooms. Can be used either direction for a sharp look." —Kelsey F

    Get a set of 15 from Amazon for $22.09 (also available in four styles finishes).

    6. And some matching drawer pulls as well, because no one likes an aesthetically chaotic room.,

    Get a set of 10 from Amazon for $31.99+ (available in 13 sizes).

    7. A kitchen cabinet pull out drawer that'll store anything from canned goods to cutting boards. It'll create a nice little presentation whenever you pull it out.

    It'd be wise to store things in here that you reach for frequently in the kitchen, like your favorite spices or your best baking tray, while leaving items that you only use once in a while up in the cupboard.

    Get it from Wayfair for $57.99.

    8. An easily installed fruit and veggie hammock that looks way better than the random bowl or basket currently housing your produce. This will also save you some space!

    Knapps Knots / Etsy

    Knapps Knots is a woman-owned business based in San Diego that specializes in handmade macrame crafts.

    Get it from Knapps Knots on Etsy for $27.90+ (available in two sizes and 12 colors; free shipping).

    9. Some stair riser decals to add a pop of personality to to what's usually a pretty dull area of the average home.

    black and white pattern on stairs

    There's just something so neat about looking down at an interesting design as you make your way up to where the magic happens (I'm of course talking about the upstairs bathroom).

    Get it from Bleucoin on Etsy for $9.49+ (available in 11 sizes). You can also get a pack of 5 from Bleucoin on Amazon for $62.49+.

    10. Or a replacement handrail if you'd prefer your staircase looked sleek and minimalistic. This could be a nice, subtle way of modernizing your home without paying for major renovations.

    black rectangle handrail

    Get it from HandrailsBoutique on Etsy for $50+ (available in 29 sizes).

    11. A floating shelf that'll look like minimalistic magic on your walls. It'll be like you hired David Blaine as your interior decorator., Amazon

    Promising review: "These are so much fun! We ordered the small size, which fits standard hardback books (approximately five to seven hardbacks in my experience). They're a great way to add some extra storage to our very small home, and we've placed them in our hallway so people ask us about them all the time. I'd highly recommend!" —LaBuenaVidaMere

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sets of three for $25 and in two colors).

    12. And if you're really into illusions, a photo mobile you can basically use as a floating scrapbook.

    photo mobile with clippings

    Promising review: "There was no assembly required, which was a pleasant surprise. I have small Christmas ornaments hanging from this and it looks great." —Michelle M

    Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in two styles).

    13. A set of simple and clean natural wood hooks that'll look like interesting wall decor when there's nothing on them, as opposed to...well...ugly empty hooks.

    Four natural wood hooks on wall

    Get them from Amazon for $16.49+ (available in two colors).

    14. A grout pen to...well...hide dirty grout. Which is a quick and easy project for lazy people who'd rather not spend an entire afternoon actually *removing* dirty grout.


    An important note here is this pen doesn't *remove* grout, which is a much more involved process. It simply *colors* the grout with nontoxic ink. Think of it as whiteout for your bathroom floors.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99.

    15. Easy-to-install expandable drawer dividers that'll separate your clothes and make getting dressed in the morning slightly more aesthetically pleasing.

    bras and other garments separated by the diver into three rows inside a drawer

    Promising review: "I will never be a person who folds underwear. It's never going to happen. That photo that comes with this product? Not me. But a simple tool like this turned out to be what it takes just to know where things are. Left. Center. Middle. Any organizer made of cloth was out. I wanted something rigid but adjustable. If an organizer has soft sides, it's going to end up underneath the things it's supposed to be separating.

    These fit firmly where I put them and there are no corners to snag clothing or hurt your hand on when you reach into the drawer. It's a well-engineered product. I created three sections to my large top dresser drawer by adding the partitions from front to back. I am so pleased with the difference that I am ordering two more sets so I can do my other drawers also. These OXO dividers cost more than the flimsy ones, but if I wasn't able to buy these, I would just not buy organizers." —SeattleBookMama

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99.

    16. Or a perfectly Instagram-able underwear and sock divider insert you can use to color coordinate your undergarments.

    Underwear and socks rolled up in storage insert

    Promising review: "I got this organizer for my daughter's drawers. I was so tired of putting her clothes away and barely closing the drawer because she had so much stuff packed into it. These organizers fit in her drawers perfectly. They came ready to go. All I had to do was zip the bottom to make it stable and put it in the drawer. I used one in her underwear drawer and the drawer looks so wonderful and organized. The compartments are a good size. I was able to get two pairs of underwear into most of the compartments. This is a sturdy organizer and a well-made product." —Kari and Kevin

    Get it from Amazon for $14.88 (available in two sizes and seven colors).

    17. An adjustable clothing rack that'll basically turn any random space in your home into a walk-in closet. Admit it, setting this up in your spare bedroom sounds like way more fun than creating a home office.

    A closet with the adjustable clothes rack installed

    Promising review: "This product has been a true lifesaver!! The installation was super easy. It took less than 10 minutes to put up. The product is very high quality. The poles are sturdy and don't sag, even under heavy loading. I've had this product for about a month and a half and it's held everything perfectly. The only suggestion I would give when installing is to make sure that you're suctioned adequately to the floor and ceiling. Securing the suction cups is critical. I can hang approximately 150 pounds of clothes with no trouble at all and no closet required!" —Andrea Christiani

    Get it from Amazon for $69.85.

    18. A stainless-steel rainfall shower head to make you feel like you live in a 5-star hotel (minus those awful skin-drying hotel soaps).

    large silver shiny square shower head

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful shower head, very thin, but feels quite sturdy and heavy. Installation took no more than five minutes. The shower head has a very smooth, highly polished, mirror-like chrome finish. It gives a satisfying showering experience without wasting too much water. Absolutely no leaks whatsoever. Everybody in our family said they liked it. What else is there to say about a shower head?" —Sadda Reddy

    Get it from Amazon for $45.31+ (available in three sizes and two finishes).

    19. A brick dyeing kit in case you're lucky enough to have exposed brick in your home (such a cool look!) but aren't keen on the color. This stuff chemically bonds with brick, stone, block, and mortar without ruining the texture of the surface.

    before: tan brick fireplace stained with soot, after: bricks painted in grey, white, and brown

    Promising review: "I had a brick repair on the wall in the front of my house. They did not match the rest of the brick at all, and I was embarrassed every time I walked past it. When I bought my kit, I didn’t know what to do with it at first, but I got great service. One of the Masonry Cosmetics guys helped me. I sent him samples of the brick and pictures and he figured out the stain colors for me. He also noticed something that I never would have thought of on my own: the mortar color was wrong and had me fix that first. Fixing that was the icing on the cake. Great product and even better service." —Gabe Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $119.

    20. And a cabinet paint set that'll pretty much do the same thing for your kitchen drawers and cupboards — which is MUCH cheaper than an actual renovation.


    The kit comes with two cans cabinet paint, a roller arm, two roller covers, and an angled paint brush; it requires no stripping, priming, or top coat or sealer, and there's no need to remove your cabinet doors.

    Promising review: "Amazing! Amazing! Amazing. Did take more than one coat though. My cabinets were bare wood and I still needed a couple of coats. (Five to be exact, but that was just me being extra.) My kitchen is medium-sized, not too big, and it only took up one can. But I still went over a couple more times just to get a nice coating. I also let it sit for some days and saw the wood was sucking up the paint in some areas so I went over it again. The project ideally does take one day like the promotion video says, but one day as in 24 hours. This took my kitchen from looking like a cheap rental apartment kitchen to a high-quality kitchen with just this paint and new knobs. The paint is perfect for cabinets — it's not too thick, so you still see the wood grains. It comes with EVERYTHING you need. I didn't have to buy a thing. The project is super easy, paint dries fast, and I did it at first by removing the cabinets but it wasn't necessary at all. Just make sure you don't leave any dripping because it would make your cabinets look cheap. I would recommend EVERYONE to purchase this and give your cabinets a chance before making a big investment in new cabinets. Wood is wood and it can be refinished." —Brandon Moronta

    Get it from Amazon for $69.95 (also available in gray, deep brown, mint, black, and white).

    21. Or a countertop paint kit to take your faux renovations a step further and make it seem as if you have super posh granite countertops — we won't tell anyone your secret if you won't.

    Promising review: "I found out about this kit a few weeks ago. I redid my mother's countertops first and was so pleased with the results, I bought a second kit and did mine this weekend. I am not a crafty person, so if I can do it, anyone can. Just be sure you follow the step-by-step instructions on the included DVD. They came out great!" —Sarah W. Fallon

    Get it from Amazon for $79+ (available in three colors).

    22. A set of ceiling fan pull chains that are as charming as they are practical. In addition to looking great, the clever design on each pull's handle will make it easier to tell which function of your ceiling fan you're cutting on.


    Promising review: "I was FOREVER pulling the wrong chain on our bedroom ceiling fan. (Want the light off? Oh no... now the fan's on high. Need to change the fan speed? Eek ... now you're in the dark.) They're actually quite heavy-duty pull chains, and they add a bit of fun to the decor. When you notice them — most of the time, who even thinks about a ceiling fan pull chain?" —LHD

    Get them from Amazon for $6.59.

    23. Some easy-to-install (and remove) peel-and-stick wallpaper if the only thing keeping you from accenting the walls in your home is how much of a commitment traditional wallpaper feels like.

    A wall with the gray and white wallpaper installed

    Promising review: "I'm very happy with this! The wall I put it on is about 9 ft. wide-by-8 ft. high, there is one window, and my baseboards are about 6 inches high — I ordered three rolls but only used two (with waste). Our house is VERY old so the walls are not flat and the corners are not an even 45 degrees, that's why I had more waste than I think I would have in a newer home. I did not have trouble matching the pattern (I recommend matching up the side from top to bottom then smoothing it out from there rather than going from top to bottom). I was able to cut around the windows with ease; repositioning was easy. It's a little awkward at first, but once you get the first piece up it the rest is easy. I did this myself and it took about two and half hours (it took about 40 minutes just to get started because our walls are so wonky, so I imagine a flat plumb wall would be much faster). I used a flat plastic paper-smoothing tool to smooth it out as well as the palms of my hands. I wouldn't hesitate to use this product again." —honesty

    Get it from Amazon for $27.59.

    24. Some "leaded-glass" film that'll add privacy and a touch of sophistication to your windows and glass doors. It'll impress your snobby neighbors and foil your nosy ones.


    Promising review: "This film was just what I needed. It provides enough privacy without blocking light. I didn’t have any problems with it not sticking to the window. You just have to make sure the windows are very clean and remember to peel off the backing and spray lots of water before sticking it on the glass!!! I used an old credit card as a squeegee to get rid of the air bubbles. The application was very easy. I highly recommend this product!!!" —Selenable

    Get it from Amazon for $12.98+ (available in five sizes).

    25. Some front door paint to...well...paint your front door. It's the easiest way to ensure your home stands apart from the rest of the houses on the block., Amazon

    Promising review: "WOW, this exceeded all our expectations. Easy to apply, dries very fast, and it's holding up very well. It's been over a year since we painted the front doors and they look great. They are easy to clean too." —Rimfire

    Get it from Amazon for $29.80+ (available in 22 colors).

    26. And some chalkboard paint that'll allow you to transform any surface into a message board, which is a lot more fun than placing a typical welcome mat outside the front door.

    reviewer image of garage door panel with chalkboard paint and a message that reads "welcome to our home" in chalk

    Promising review: "We got new garage doors, so I took a panel of our old garage door and made a yard sign with the chalk paint. I prepped the surface very carefully and painted when I had ideal outdoor painting temps. The paint was easy to use and went on smoothly. It's been outside for a month and has lasted pretty well. I think it looks great!" —Jean-Jeannie

    Get it from Amazon for $12.32.
