    Time to put all those opinions about the homes on House Hunters (and opinions about buyers' opinions) into play.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own.

    1. A faux-sheepskin rug you can throw on your ugliest arm chair and turn into your throne where you'll wield the most important of decisions, like which series to binge-watch this weekend.

    2. A bidet toilet attachment for a spa-like experience to get you squeaky clean. Just think of all the closet space you're going to free up when you require FAR less TP!

    3. Lighted curtains you can layer with some sheer curtains for an ethereal look indoors or outdoors on the reg. Staying inside and getting your money's worth on your rent or mortgage is going to feel way more glamorous.

    4. A velvet futon so impressive that no one will believe it's a futon because we're all so used to those unsightly metal behemoths. Folding it out into a sleeping surface will be your new fave magic trick.

    5. Peel-and-stick wallpaper to help you get a snazzy DIY look 'til you're on an interior designer budget. It'll happen for ya' one day.

    6. An enviable Dutch oven to match your kitchen, but won't break the bank like the holy grail Le Creuset. Some day. Some. Day.

    7. A stunning tea kettle with a cool-touch handle that'll look so glam on your stovetop like it does on mine!

    8. Monstera leaf placemats to help you set your table — even if it's a tiny table squeezed into a corner! — and make every meal feel like a big deal.

    9. A scratch-off state map as a cool reminder to finally take that road trip out west on the rare occasion you'll actually want to leave your palace.

    10. A gorgeous cat cave — it'll be a serious step up from that old cat bed *and* give your cat a lil' bit of privacy.

    11. Or a cat tree, an actual (faux) tree, so your fave felines can frolick in a fixture that fits in with your house plant collection. We love a multi-functional piece!

    12. An indoor-friendly hammock chair that'll give hanging out a new meaning. Add a throw pillow and you'll never want to leave.

    13. A super adaptable sofa you can take apart piece by piece and then swap out covers for over the years. Aka, you can buy one couch and build onto it as you build your life! Awwwwww.

    14. A colorful shag area rug in case you want to live in a cozy cotton candy dreamscape. That's a rhetorical statement. Of course you do.

    15. Or a boho area rug that, tbh, would be easier to vacuum in high-traffic areas but still be SO stunning. Can you believe?!

    16. A graciously sized storage ottoman for storing your "nice" blankets 'til guests come over and then the guests can sit on this as some extra seating! OR hide your good blankets from guests who spill everything. It's your home! Do what feels right.

    17. A plant-watering bird that'll keep your plant babes hydrated and looking like their best selves, even if you currently can't be described in that way.

    18. And a juniper bonsai to add to your plant horde. New year, new plants!

    19. A luxe-looking mousepad with a metal finish for smooth movement that'll perk up a lackluster home office — even if that home office is the couch or your bed.

    20. A compact desk large enough for your laptop and some accoutrements but small enough to avoid it becoming a dumping ground.

    21. A gorgeous office desk chair so you can sit pretty while banging out a report or two before logging offline for a long weekend. Byeeee.

    22. A hanging frame helper so you can finally get all your wall art up and make it feel like home. (You can only lean so many frames prints against the wall as a "look.")

    23. And if you've been putting off framing some photos, you can score a professionally framed photo for a budget-friendly price.

    24. Or perhaps a complete gallery wall kit complete with pro-quality photos, hanging hardware, and paper guides — so that naked wall can finally get dressed in something special.

    25. Garage magnets for achieving a desirable carriage-door style with your existing doors. (*Actual* carriage-style doors are very pricey.)

    26. An over-the-door hook ready to deliver some lip service because chances are you need the storage so you might as well choose a glam option!

    27. A divine candle set so you can finally set up your Golden Girls shrine.

    28. A compact AeroGarden with your choice of four seed kits so you can do some indoor gardening on your kitchen countertop. You'll be so glad you have this, even if you're lucky enough to have a sprawling yard!

    29. A canopy bed befitting your royal lifestyle (with plenty of space underneath for storing all your civilian things).

    30. A wordy pillow any bibliophile will adore. Nancy Drew solved the mystery of who lives in the gorgeous home. It's you!

    31. A pretty yoga mat (that's legit v good) so you can finally make a lil' exercise nook to help find your center and then 'gram it.

    32. A coloring bedding set you can scribble on and then wash for a clean palette.

    33. An amethyst picture holder to highlight a special moment in time amongst the OG frames on your mantel.

    34. A countertop painting kit that'll transform outdated surfaces into a granite look for considerably less dough than actual granite.

    35. And if you want a total kitchen transformation, a kitchen cabinet painting kit that requires ZERO stripping or priming *might* make you wonder if you're in someone else's house before you've had your coffee.

    36. And some under-cabinet lights can make your kitchen look so much more expensive and help set a mood that'll actually make you wanna cook.

    37. A retro-leaning turntable stand with plenty of space to contain your flourishing vinyl collection. It's time to break up with that plastic crate.

    38. A ~reversible~ indoor/outdoor rug you can hold onto as your design tastes change.

    39. Oversized Turkish cotton towels that are super absorbent, quick-drying, and large enough to qualify as a bath sheet.

    40. An industrial-style table lamp in case you're after that Edison bulb style but don't want your kids bumping up against a bare bulb.

    41. A macrame wall hanging that'll add some texture in a sea of framed art.

    42. An incredibly glam bar cart people won't believe you got on Amazon. It can be your new party trick!

    43. Or a crystal decanter set you can empty your mid-shelf liquor into and park on a shelf in case you can't afford the floor space of a bar cart.
