    1. A pack of indoor/outdoor decorative lights that'll provide a surprisingly tasteful warm-white glow in your space, when the harsh lighting β€” made worse by being in tight quarters β€” simply won't do.

    Promising review: "These lights are perfect. I have them in my foyer on a timer. They really create a magical atmosphere. I'll be buying more!" β€”Crazy Plant Lady

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (for 33 ft).

    2. Or, a donut-style candle you'll also want to ~cop~ β€” especially if you're short on outlets.

    West Elm

    Get it from West Elm for $19.

    3. A geometric shelf to take advantage of allll that unused storage space on your walls.

    West Elm

    Get it from West Elm for $24.99.

    4. A macrame mirror, that'll make your space look much bigger (and boho-ier, quite frankly) than it actually is. The power of mirrors!


    Promising review: "This mirror is GORGEOUS!! I bought this with few expectations and it's simply amazing! It's securely placed in the macrame and hangs flat. The photographs show the front and back of the mirror. I want more but don't need them. :D" β€”M. Bradley

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in two colors).

    5. A Japanese-style ceramic planter that'll fit perfectly on your window sill when you've run out of floor.,

    Promising review: "I love the design of this planter and that it comes with a screen to put in the inside of the planter to cover the drainage hole. This particular planter is patterned beautifully and I would definitely recommend." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $9.93+ (available in seven designs).

    6. Also window sill friendly: A small Greek column to display your air plant in like a Cultured Person.

    lilmaisons / Via Etsy

    Promising review: "Lovely planter! Looks perfect on a birch cubby shelf alongside the Venus de Milo planter." β€”Ornithopterx

    Get it from lilmaisons on Etsy for $18+ ($20 with airplant included).

    7. A mini tapestry that'll make a big impression. (One that is not, your decor looks awfully cramped in this space!)

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "I ordered this tapestry for my dorm room and I’ve gotten a lot of questions regarding where I got it from!" β€”Angel14

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $19 (available in three colors).

    8. A set of geometric jewelry trays to encourage yourself to stay organized β€” there are fewer places to hide clutter in a small space, after all.


    Promising review: "I purchased these trays for food displays. They are thin and pretty small but everything looked great on them! They definitely can’t handle anything incredibly heavy so in the future I’d use them as decorative trays for utensils/napkins or cheese platters but you can’t beat the price. I love the colors." β€”melissa houghtalin

    Get it from Amazon for $9.88 (for a set of four).

    9. A cross-pattern linen cushion cover, because when your bed is 75% of your room, you might as well invest in some throw pillows.,

    Promising review: "Great pillow covers. Fit perfectly over the faded pillows on my screened porch for a whole new look this season. The price is fantastic and can't be beat. Very stylish too. Love the natural look of the material." β€”knitchick

    Get it from Amazon for $3.62+ (available in three sizes).

    10. Or, a satiny pillowcase that'll give you decor *and* keep you cool at night and bedhead-free in the morning.


    Promising review: "The satin is heavenly soft. You can really feel the difference against your skin and hair (this was a replacement on another brand β€”what a difference in quality!). It is zippered, so no worries about your pillow sliding out of the case. It is absolutely beautiful and heavy duty feeling. I will be able to use this case for years, I have no doubt. I feel like it is one of the best buys I've made in quite some time. It washes well and never wrinkles β€” just delightful!" β€”Debi S.

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in 24 colors).

    11. And a faux-fur throw blanket to round out your bed accents. (It doesn't get much cozier than this, folks!)


    Promising review: "I started off calling this the Jon Snow blanket because it reminded me of the fluffy cape he wears, but now my family and I refer to this amazing blanket simply as Jon Snow. My house knows no blanket except for the king of the blankets named Stark. Also be forewarned, if you have any direwolves they will immediately take over Jon Snow and he will no longer belong to you. I'm considering ordering a second one just for myself now. Jon Snow is beautiful and soft on both sides and great to cuddle with. He is also machine washable and dryable and comes out looking just like new so long as you wash him in cold water and tumble dry him on low heat. He is from the North after all." β€”Samantha A.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.98+ (available in 18 colors and three sizes).

    12. A sleek mag rack to show your reading material a lil' respect, rather than cluttering your floors (which are already in short supply).


    Promising review: "I just got this magazine holder today and I can't tell you enough about the quality of this product. It's beautiful, just like the picture, and it's efficient...I put it alongside my TV stand and no longer have to clutter up the stand ;)" β€”N.M.P118

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    13. A set of pebble-style coat hooks to turn your wall storage into art.

    West Elm

    Get it from West Elm for $24.99 (for three).

    14. Or, a set of natural-wood hooks for a more classically minimalist look.


    Promising review: "We converted from towel bars to pegs, so that we no longer had to fold our towels and to help them dry faster. These pegs are so beautiful! The beechwood finish looks great. We live in a cottage and these are casual but elegant details." β€”Lynne Homeyer

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in two colors).

    15. No-glue privacy film for a bit of privacy (and prism fun) where you need it most. (Especially useful if your room is more of a makeshift bedroom with windowed doors.),

    Promising review: "After too many months of debating what to buy to cover our bathroom windows and my husband not wanting to chance the cheap $5 spray-on frosted glass I think we made the right decision buying this instead! I love DIYs, but I fail at them MISERABLY! I can't cut or draw a straight line to save my life and end up needing my husband to fix my mistakes. Well I'm here to tell you that doesn't matter for this! Overall very satisfied with this product and I love that my window looks like a Monet painting every morning!" β€”Beth

    Get it from Amazon for $13.98+ (available in five sizes).

    16. A contemporary floating wall shelf you can use to display your vinyl or magazines. Again: not on the ground!,

    Promising review: "Used these floating shelves for records on the wall near our record player. They fit 6-8 records (depending on how thick the albums are). Easy to install β€” we eyeballed where we wanted them to be placed, used a pencil to mark where to drill. Then drilled a hole slightly smaller than the provided anchor, then screwed in the provided screw with a Philips head screwdriver." β€”dershwin

    Get it from Amazon for $10+ (available in copper and brass).

    17. A prism picture frame as a tasteful way to show off your favorite people and memories.


    Promising review: "This is absolutely stunning! I bought it to place on my desk and it really brightened up the place and gave my space some personality! I placed a 5x6 photo on it and it really does look like it's floating! I also like how the package came with an extra screw so that I can easily mount it onto a wall should I change my mind about keeping it perched on my desk. Great product!" β€”colormeviolet

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in four sizes and five colors).

    18. A floating shelf β€” with an emphasis on the "floating" β€” that actually conceals every trace of hardware to create the illusion of levitating books. A much more viable option than getting a free-standing bookcase, I'd say!


    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!" β€”LaBuenaVidaMere

    Get it from Amazon for $11.80+ (also available in sets of three for $29.95+).

    19. A round marble-style dry erase board for the best kind of decor: the kind that reminds you to get stuff done.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This whiteboard has such a nice aesthetic, and is a great way to add notes and reminders for myself in my room, while still having a unique touch! I got this product on sale and was very pleased with the purchase." β€”lily1616

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $9.99 (available in tan and white).

    20. Similarly: An outdoorsy cork board with tree push pins β€” if you don't buy this, can take a hike!


    Promising review: "This is a small cork board, but it was just what I wanted to showcase some souvenirs from our trip to a mountain lodge. The push pins are miniature fir trees, how cute! I had a small area I wanted to add some dΓ©cor to and this filled the bill. The cork itself is thick enough to be sturdy, not flimsy. I'm more than satisfied." β€”Teresa W.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.95.

    21. A set of geometric coasters that β€” just guessing here β€” will probably look a lot better than having cup rings all over your nightstand.


    Promising review: "Very well built, color is amazing and packaging was nice too. Love Areaware products." β€”adamc328

    Get it from Amazon for $14.94+ (for a set of six; available in six colorways).

    22. A house-shaped tissue box, because when your room is small, everything β€” even your tissue box β€” is on display. Meaning: everything should be treated as decor.,

    Promising review: "I first spotted this at a swanky modern hotel room with all-white decor. I love how it hides an unsightly branded tissue box β€” it practically vanishes! It looks so cute with the tissue-y 'billow' of smoke, and is functional too. Every modern minimalist's dream." β€”nycgirl

    Get it from Amazon for $5.

    Read our full review of the Umbra Casa tissue box cover (#6).

    23. A pair of bookends you've gotta hand it to β€” they're practical and intriguing. The winning recipe for a smart storage solution.


    Get it from Amazon for $13.80 (for a pair).

    24. A metal letter sorter that you can also use to organize makeup palettes.,

    Promising review: "Great for holding makeup palettes. Can fit 3-4 palettes depending on the thickness. It even fits the Morphe James Charles palette with the box and bubble wrap included. The metal is flexible, so you’re able to squeeze larger palettes in." β€”Que

    Get it from Amazon for $7.86+ (available in rose gold and gold).

    25. A set of vintage-style botanical prints you can frame for a super-affordable and stylish addition to your drab walls.


    Promising review: "Good quality. I loved being able to purchase these and put them in frames for a fraction of the cost of other look-alikes. Took some digging to find frames that were good-looking and a good price, but I found them. Love my botanical wall." β€”Mon

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99 (for four 8x10 prints).

    26. A two-tiered jewelry tray for some eye-catching vertical storage.

    Promising review: "I use this as a key-wallet-sunglasses tray just inside my front door. It is adorable and functional! Holds everything easily and looks stylish too!" β€”D. Wendell

    Get it from Amazon for $20.

    27. A natural wood desk lamp for some strong Pixar vibes on your bedside table.


    Promising review: "I don't think it's possible to be happier with an online purchase than I am with this desk lamp. This is a very high-quality product with an extremely heavy base for stability and real rubber wood for the arm. Even the fittings are made of cast iron. Assembly is easy, and the finished product is both an attractive piece of art AND a functional light source. I wouldn't hesitate to buy it again, and I urge anyone on the fence to take the plunge. This is a very high-quality item." β€”Malcolm

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in black and white).

    28. And a steel wall grid to organize your photos, cards, and reminders. (Upbeat phrases not required β€” but perhaps you'll be riding the high of your organized AF room.)


    Promising review: "Pretty cool way to display pictures, and even mail/bills as a reminder to pay, lol. Great quality." β€”sharti

    Get it from Target for $9.99.
