    1. A 10-piece set of clear organization bins so you can keep the things you use the most close at hand while wrangling all those random items that end up shoved in the back of a drawer, or worse...scattered around your countertops. A clean, organized kitchen will feel like a new kitchen!

    2. Or, a bamboo drawer organizer that'll turn your junk or gadget drawer into ~organized chaos~. It's got five compartments for everything from spatulas to buttons to measuring spoons to those rubber bands you seem to find all over the kitchen but have no idea where they came from.

    3. A trio of wire baskets that will look classier than the cardboard boxes you currently use. Use them to hold kitchen linens, snacks, or anything else that needs to live somewhere other than your counters or floors.

    4. A wall-mounted wine rack for creating a wine cellar without *actually* building one. This rack is key for saving space and putting your collection on display. The sets are available to fit nine, 12, or 24 bottles displayed side by side to save room and jazz up your decor. Cheers!

    5. A set of wire cupboard organizers because cabinet space doesn't grow on trees, and you need to make the most of every 👏 last 👏 inch 👏 without plowing down a wall. Think how much more you can shove in your cabinets with these in tow!

    6. A set of hanging wall baskets to add some intrigue to your kitchen and take advantage of any empty wall space that's begging to be used for storage. Get that fruit basket off the valuable countertop for good, and keep your fruits and veggies organized!

    7. A roll of peel-and-stick wallpaper because it requires minimum effort for maximum impact. Put it in the pantry, in your breakfast nook, or anywhere that'll distract people from the sink full of dirty dishes that are "soaking" until further notice.

    8. A counter dining set with storage if your kitchen is missing a place to dine and you're in desperate need of more storage space for the things you use daily.

    9. A wood china cabinet that'll do two jobs at the same time. First, it'll give you boatloads of storage space to hold all those kitchen gadgets you keep collecting. Second, it'll look good while doing it. Who needs to knock down walls for built-ins when you can add extra storage the easy way?

    10. A pair of extendable under-cabinet strip lights so you never have to fumble for a light switch in the middle of the night when all you want is a glass of milk and two (or 10) Oreos. The best part? You won't need an electrician to install these plug-in strips.

    11. A set of new cabinet bar pulls that'll make even the most outdated kitchen cupboards look new. All new cabinets are expensive. This hardware? Not so much.

    Glass and brass globes

    16. A set of peel-and-stick floor tiles because it looks like the real thing, costs a fraction of the price, and doesn't require a team of strangers to install it in your home.

    17. A mother-of-pearl tile backsplash because it'll make it easier to clean up anything that splatters. Plus, the pearly sheen will transform your kitchen into a swanky Grecian getaway.

    19. A set of adhesive wood plank vinyl flooring to give you the look of real wood floors even if you don't have the energy or funds to invest in them. These are waterproof and easy to clean and will stand up to the everyday traffic your kitchen gets.

    20. A rolling kitchen cart so you can have the perks of a kitchen island (storage, counter space, etc.) without having to worry about it messing up your kitchen flow. This thing has casters so you can roll it anywhere you need to.

    23. Or, some trendy green paint and primer if you want to shake things up. There's a reason this color was chosen as Better Homes and Gardens' 2023 color of the year, and it's because it's just the right amount of punch without being overpowering.

    24. A breakfast nook that seats five because it'll make your kitchen feel like a bistro with no woodworking required. And if that's not compelling enough, the benches open up to give you extra storage!

    25. Or, a drop leaf kitchen table with two chairs if you're looking for something more compact. Sometimes, adding a piece of furniture can make a space feel totally new.

    27. A Dutch oven to leave out on your stove and act as a colorful accessory when you're not making a batch of butternut squash soup. If you're craving a renovation, sometimes a few new accessories can help scratch that itch.
