    1. A handy mobile shelf that'll squeeze the most out of those teeny crevices in your home. You can store canned food, seasonings, hair supplies, accessories — anything really. With four wheels, this mobile unit is totally easy to move.

    2. A wall sconce with an exposed bulb that can be hardwired or easily plugged in. Either way, you won't waste floor space on a lamp. Hate the cords? Add a cover.

    3. A silicone placemat which, thankfully, comes in neutral shades. If you're a parent but don't want primary colors oozing out of your dining room, try these.

    4. A minimal floating bedside drawer to put the finishing touches on a perfect bedroom. This is a great option if you'd rather keep your floor space clear.

    5. And if you love that, you'll adore the floating media stand since furniture legs just add unnecessary visual weight in your otherwise clear space. Now you can hide game consoles, cable boxes, and controllers without spending $$$ on a credenza.

    6. A wooden switch cover because it's the small details that really make a space feel like home. I get compliments on these all the time.

    7. A space-saving Murphy bed to look like a shelf during the day but transform into a comfortable bed when you need to rest. It's made of genuine birchwood, unlike most beds on the market.

    8. A set of amber soap dispensers so soothing to look at, you'll never want to keep branding in your kitchen or bathroom again. Plus, nobody will know you got your soap from the Dollar Store.

    9. A versatile Fur Oil (remember, from Shark Tank!) that was destined to be used down there but works well anywhere that hair grows. People love this because it reduces stubble, razor burn, and ingrowns.
