    1. A velvet couch with one cushion that lifts to reveal a treasure chest's worth of storage and another that pulls out to turn the whole thing into a cozy guest bed.


    Price: $667.98

    2. A double closet rod because Marie Kondo's folding method might make your dresser way roomier, but you simply don't have time for anything more complicated than slipping your shirts onto hangers and going on your merry way.


    Promising review: "This is a great rod to add extra hanging room especially in a college dorm closet! I would highly recommend this item." β€”Snook

    Price: $11.40

    3. A wall sconce so you can free up space on your nightstand for more important things... Like, perhaps, the dozens of candles you unwrapped from your distant aunt and extremely polite coworkers.


    Price: $33.11 (originally $66.02)

    4. An eight-tier rack that can be attached to any door or wall in the house so that you don't have to shove every single thing you own onto the shelves of some badly designed closet.


    Promising review: "I am currently using mine with the over-the-door hanger but you can also mount it with screws. I was very pleased to have options at the price! I like this shelf unit far better than others because the shelves can be placed at different heights. It comes with three bars that you can attach above the baskets to prevent taller items from tumbling out." β€”Texasgal

    Price: $31.49

    5. A drying rack that stays out of your way but can likely hold your entire dinnerware set without breaking a sweat β€” it can support up to 66 pounds!


    Price: $74.54 (originally $101.54)

    6. A leaning desk if the idea of having a home office in your teeny-weeny home is laughable, but you really need to stop trying to do work from your bed.


    Promising review: "It was really easy to put this desk together, which was an immediate win for me. It's sturdy, looks just like the picture, and fits perfectly in the space I ordered it for. My neighbor took one look and decided to order one for herself!" β€”HappyCustomer

    Price: $88.35 (originally $99)

    7. And a ghost chair to go with it. It won't create the clutter (or the eyesore) that an actual desk chair would, and is just so freakin' cute!


    Promising review: "This beautiful yet sturdy and affordable chair is perfect for smaller areas where another type would add visual clutter. For instance, I purchased two of these chairs for the vanity area of my daughter's dorm suite. My daughter, her roommate, and their guests loved these chairs. I am considering purchasing some for my home too." β€”FAMUALF

    Price: $65.40

    8. A set of curtains that you can hang from ceiling to floor in order to create the illusion of larger windows and taller walls.


    Promising review: "This is the best style of curtains ever. I have them on every window but the one in the kitchen." β€”JayDig

    Price: $12+ (available in six colors and three sizes)

    9. A barely-there coffee table that'll trick your eye into thinking the tiny living room is fit for a king.


    Promising review: "This is a super cute and modern coffee table. I love the gold metal with the glass top. It brightens up my whole living room!" β€”Jacacz

    Price: $280.69 (originally $338)

    10. Or a console table that you can slide behind the couch if a large coffee table would just make your space feel crowded.


    Promising review: "I loved that this table is not very deep. the size of it is perfect for my living room because I don't have much room to spare but I still wanted to add a table behind my couch. It is sturdy, and easy to put together." β€”Wiscomom

    Price: $71 (originally $114.74, available in five colors)

    11. A 29-pack of hooks because there is no such thing as too much vertical storage. This entire house is going to be covered in hanging jackets and purses, or so help me!


    Price: $11.73 (originally $23.99)

    12. A cutting board that perches over your sink or your stove, because you need to be able to spread out when you're doing the prepwork for dinner.


    Price: $25.99

    13. A wall-mounted media console if you hate looking at all the ugly router boxes and video game consoles but really don't like the idea of giving up any more of your precious breathing room. Who says you can't have your cake and eat it, too?!


    Promising review: "This is nicely designed, functional, and relatively easy to install (though it does take two fairly robust adults). We installed it below a wall-mounted LED TV for the external soundbar and bass unit. All the wires are hidden from view, mainly because of the design of this console. We love the gentle curve of the top edge, which prevents it from looking too boxy." β€”DanTheMan

    Price: $180.50+ (originally $190.45, available in four colors)

    14. A large rug to make any small space look bigger than it actually is.


    Price: $15.87+ (originally $18, available in four colors and seven sizes)

    15. A makeup organizer because of course your bathroom counter doesn't have enough space for your entire collection. Plus, being able to see everything at a glance will make getting ready in the morning a much speedier process.


    Promising review: "I bought this product to help me organize my makeup, and it works great! The side compartments are great for standing up brushes and mascara, and the clear look allows you to see where everything is. The drawers are roomy and can fit several things. So far, I love my purchase!" β€”Haley

    Price: $16.47 (originally $19.99)

    16. A media console that offers a lot more room for storage, but comes in a pretty color that prevents it from feeling too imposing.


    Price: $202.43+ (originally $311.43, available in nine colors)

    17. An adjustable rack you can stick underneath your sink so you get instant storage space.


    Promising review: "It took me less than 10 minutes to assemble this shelf. It is a very nice looking shelf with a satin finish that will look good under any sink. The shelving lifts off for easy configuration. It's great for holding towels, and there's a small basket included that can hold about 10 bars of soap or a few washcloths. Overall, this is a great shelf especially if your shelving needs are constantly changing." β€”MC3740

    Price: $22.84

    18. A narrow cart with shelves on shelves of storage space so that you don't have to feel like you're squeezing every last inch of space out of your kitchen.


    Promising review: "This is a high-quality cart! It was easy to put together and is very sturdy. It's the perfect size for a kitchen island. I received many compliments at a recent party!" β€”Nadine

    Price: $109 (originally $129)

    19. A chrome bookshelf because its reflective surface and backless design will prevent it from overwhelming the space.


    Price: $250.27 (originally $359.83, available in two colors)

    20. An entryway storage valet if your dream home has a mudroom, but your current apartment can barely contain all of your shoes.


    Promising review: "I easily put this together in less than an hour. I have a coat or bag on each hanger and the unit holds it all well. The shelves are a nice place to organize gloves, hats, and scarves in bins, as well as the occasional pair of shoes. My daughters (5 and 2) can easily reach the hangers for their coats. I would definitely recommend this item." β€”Kirrabismom

    Price: $32.72 (originally $51.99)

    21. A large mirror you can hang across from a light source to make any room feel airier. This one looks like a window and might even fool you into thinking you have more access to the outside than you do!


    Promising review: "I decided to go with mirrors instead of art, and these were an excellent choice for the large wall in the living room. I purchased three of them and I couldn't be happier! They arrived in perfect shape!" β€”Patsy

    Price: $124.74

    22. A fold-out dining room table with plenty of storage space so it’s always earning its keep.


    Price: $295.67

    23. A nightstand with a metal frame to make that small space between the wall and your bed feel more open.


    Promising review: "I love the look of it. I prefer a modern aesthetic when it comes to my decor and this was perfect. Since it is made of metal, it can easily transition as our bedroom changes. I can also elevate the look with just a couple of accessories. The shipping was faster than originally quoted and the unpacking was a breeze. This is a great addition to our home." β€”MisterG

    Price: $89 (available in three colors)

    24. An over-the-toilet space saver so you can actually store your towels in the bathroom. If you've ever had to waddle to your bedroom in your birthday suit, you know what a difference this would make.


    Promising review: "This over-the-toilet space saver is absolutely amazing. It was very easy to assemble and is very sturdy. It is definitely very functional and adds a good look to my bathroom. I am very pleased with this product and will definitely recommend this to everyone." β€”Carol

    Price: $59 (originally $79)

    25. A three-pack of nesting baskets because even the neatest of us can have a tough time keeping our shelves nice and tidy. These'll disguise the clutter and organize your different bathroom essentials.


    Promising review: "These baskets are natural and look very classy. I like them so much I am ordering another set. They are sturdy and, from the look of them, they will last forever. They aren't flimsy or cheaply made, and look exactly as they do in the picture." β€”JuliaIII

    Price: $18.67

    26. A three-tiered hanging basket so your produce can get some breathing room and behave as functional decor.


    Promising review: "I'm very pleased with my purchase. It looks very nice hanging in my kitchen. I use it for potatoes and onions. The copper color is nice, especially because it matches the knobs and hinges on my kitchen cabinets." β€”TarynsMomMom

    Price: $15.09

    27. A structural light fixture because brightening the room up will prevent you from feeling like the walls are closing in.


    Promising review: "Installing this fixture is a super-easy way to make a room feel trendy and modern. I used this chandelier in my kitchen because it is both elegant and easy to match with other materials." β€”Rose

    Price: $89

    28. A dresser that'll take up about as much floorspace as your nightstand but still has ample room for your wardrobe.


    Promising review: "I love the color and spacious drawers. This is the second one that I have purchased." β€”Mary

    Price: $180.39 (originally $239.99, available in two colors)

    29. A bed frame that has a small footprint but makes a big impact.


    Promising review: " I cannot believe that this bed frame fits in my small space as perfectly as it does. I was surprised when it was delivered in such a small box! The instructions were great, but it's easier if two people build it together. It seems very sturdy and neat looking, and there is space under the bed to put small toys and boxes. I am very pleased with the design of this bed, and I highly recommend it." β€”alemij

    Price: $106 (originally $140, available in three colors and three sizes)

    30. Or a bed frame with shelves because otherwise, it can be unnecessarily difficult to make the dead space underneath your mattress useful.


    Promising review: "This is very modern looking. I love the two-tone gray and black, and I really love the hairpin legs. It seems nice and sturdy so far, and the wooden mattress support means no box spring. The cubbies are a great addition and you can use it to store books, basketballs, a few toys, etc. I love it and would highly recommend it!" β€”Pitty

    Price: $265.90+ (available in two colors and two sizes)

    31. And a pot rack because your cabinets aren't nearly as small as you think they are... Actually, they're just as small as you think, but you can use that space a whole lot more effectively when you aren't trying to cram that giant cookware set Grandma got you for Christmas into them.


    Price: $26.99
