    1. An ombré fleece throw, because this'll make your old couch suddenly look chic and new, even though we really just want it as a cuddle buddy while watching AHS alone.

    Price: $25 (for a set of eight)

    3. A tweed storage basket to neatly keep anything from laundry to unsightly clutter from interfering with your decorating goals. The Chair won't cut it while redecorating.

    5. A velvet floor pillow so you can offer extra seating, even when on a budget and the proud owner of a tiny living room. This'll let your guests comfortably pop a squat anywhere — and what room can't use an upgrade with some luxe velvet?


    Promising review: "This floor pillow is absolutely adorable! It's the perfect size to throw in the corner and use as an extra seat when guests come over. The velvet is super soft and the blush pink color looks great with the rest of my decor. It's actually a little bigger than it seems in the picture — thick enough to provide lots of cushion for someone sitting on it. Overall, great value!" —decordiva

    Price: $34 (available in eight colors)

    6. A modern three-bulb lamp with a marble base, because this'll instantly ✨brighten✨ any room — even when the lights are turned off. AND your bank account won't look *dim*? Nobody pinch us.

    Promising review: "These are super cute! They are a little smaller, but look amazing grouped together. The colors are spot on." —Jac

    Price: $39 for a set of three

    8. A cast iron Dutch oven for finally beginning the sophisticated kitchen of your dreams — without the expected price tag. I do believe you're well on your way to living the Ina life you DESERVE.


    Promising review: "This cast iron Dutch oven is a great deal since it is a fraction of the price you will pay for many brands of this, and it's a great first Dutch oven. It should serve all the same purposes the same as any brand. Aesthetically, this dutch oven matches higher-end brands pretty well. LeCresuet comes in a ton of color options, but you definitely pay for those available options. It's something you can leave out on the counter when not using, because it adds to the overall look and feel of your kitchen. It is hard to beat the price for this." —W0rldTrav3l3r

    Price: $39.94 (originally $49.99; available in two colors)

    9. A marbled duvet cover so your room looks immediately polished, despite being on a budget that's yet to *graduate* from your college days. You won't lose sleep over your credit card bill when using this to decorate.

    Price: $23.99+ (available in sizes twin–king and two styles)

    The stand is included! If you CAN'T keep plants alive, a faux plant ($26.98 on Walmart) will also look great!

    Promising review: "This arrived well-packaged and undamaged. The pot and stand are were exactly as described. The lovely blue pot is a generous size that looks terrific when filled with plants. I would definitely recommend this product. It's a great value, too!" —scw

    Price: $29.99+ (available in two sizes and colors)

    11. A set of stylish kitchen utensils that'll double as a sophisticated touch to your counters when you're not cooking. Oh, you never cook? No one would guess based on these.


    Plus they're stylish enough to keep on display! This 10-piece wood and silicone set includes a spatula, solid spoon, slotted spoon, spaghetti server, whisk, tongs, bottle opener, and three measuring cups.

    Promising review: "This set had a nice heft to it, they look great, and we especially like the measurement callouts on the measuring cups. So far they've been super easy to clean, as well." —mebe

    Price: $35 (for a set of 10)

    12. A duo of rope baskets for keeping clutter OFF your desk without actually reorganizing. It turns out the best way to make your home office look put-together is cleverly hiding all your belongings.


    Promising review: "I saw these on Instagram and got them. I like that there's a loop so you can hang the baskets from a hook. I have zero counter space so the hanging option really stood out. They also come with a removable cardboard in the bottom so it can retain it's shape better, which I thought was pretty cool. I use one by the door for winter items and one to hold some gaming accessories, but they would be perfect for makeup, nail polish, essential oils, or socks!" —KT

    Price: $14.99 (available in three colors)

    13. A wooden square end table so you don't have to blow more $$$ on living room furniture. This'll look just as nice and serve as a pretty place to show off small decor, instead of having them pile up as a distraction.


    Promising review: "These tables are pretty basic, but well worth the price. They have a nice wood finish, can be assembled in about two minutes, and definitely seem sturdy. I was looking for nightstands for my bedroom and everything was too expensive, so I got these small tables for just $20 each and they more than serve the purpose. The appearance, price, quality, and quick service make them a winner in my book." —Emmett123

    Price: $20+ (available in seven colors)

    14. A set of sheer floral curtains, because these'll ~shed a light~ on your amazing taste (and *not* how much you spent). But seriously, they WILL make the most out of available natural light to help make your room feel airier.


    Promising review: "I ordered these online in white for my newly renovated farmhouse bathroom. OMG, where have these been all my life? They are semi-sheer, and sturdier, heavier, and thicker than expected. They're really nice quality. I'm surprised at the low price for such quality. I'm in love with these." —cole5772

    Price: $10+ (available in three sizes and colors)

    15. A metal rolling cart that'll make your cheap vino look classier than Dom. It's easy to make your home look sophisticated when you take a page out of Don Draper's book.

    Promising review: "My little maltese dog was about seven months old when I got him. One of the first things he did was chew a corner of my expensive solid wood desk! I purchased this for my dark desk. I've only applied one coating, rubbing it in very well. If I didn't know he had chewed it, I would not notice it. This works very well and in some instances, miracles." —mrblueu

    Price: $4.82 for a set of two (also available for light wood)

    17. A two-toned chenille pillow so you can cheaply transform your old seat into a fashionable accent chair. Plus, it's so soft you'll gain a new cuddle buddy. It also enjoys Netflix binges — especially Stranger Things.

    Price: $8+ (available in two sizes and five colors)

    18. A set of gold picture frames, because these'll turn your living room into the next MoMA by creating an inexpensive gallery wall. Suddenly your family photos look artistic.

    Promising review: "This shelf is so simple to install — it's dummy-proof! It's a great size and very deep, which is hard to find in stores anywhere! I bought two and put one in the garage, fearing it may be discontinued!" —SUPBERB

    Price: $20.99 (originally $28.54)

    22. A Tasty wooden chop block, because this'll be a refined addition to your kitchen that Martha herself would approve of. Its clever non-slip grain design, large juice well, and comfortable handles will have you telling guests to call you "chef" while preparing dinner.


    This is a part of BuzzFeed Tasty's collection, exclusively at Walmart.

    Promising review: "This chop block is a fantastic cutting board. It is heavy, large, and gorgeous. It is a high-quality chop block. It looks beautiful in the kitchen on display and it works fantastic. I love the liquid well for cutting fruit. I have been using small plastic cutting boards for years. I am so happy to have this big workspace on a nice wooden surface in my kitchen. I am so happy with this cutting board!" —TheWanderers

    Price: $19.97

    23. A geometric shag area rug that'll greet your tired feet with much-needed fluffy relief at the end of a long day. PLUS! It'll make your living room look a little more *upscale* and actually make your space look larger when strategically placed.


    How, you say? Place your furniture so that it's either in the middle of the rug, or so the front legs of each piece are on the rug. It'll make even small living rooms look more ~spacious~.

    Promising review: "This is my second purchase of this rug. This one was ordered to put right in front of the bathtub so I could step out of the shower onto something plush and warm. It goes all the way to the sink, so my feet stay cozy and actually dry off. The rug is a deep navy blue and the white/creme shapes make for a beautiful addition to the bathroom. It's super easy to clean. I highly recommend!" —silv3r1

    Price: $10.59 for a set of 20 (originally $30.99)

    25. A brass hot tool holder so you can chicly organize your bathroom by keeping your counters clear (no mess = bigger-looking space) *and* using this as some sophisticated decor.


    Promising review: "This hair dryer and flat iron holder works great! It helped to organize my vanity and make it much neater. It is heavy and balanced, which keeps it from tipping over. I also like the oil rubbed bronze finish. Nice product!" —LisaHG

    Price: $15.87 (available in two colors)

    26. A set of minimalist bowls, because it's high time you stop eating your cereal from paper plating. Your guests will be FLOORED to see you not only own adult kitchenware, but a sophisticated set at that.

    Price: $9.50 (originally $13.57; available in two colors)

    28. A stylish metal end table for adding a sophisticated flair to your space without taking up too much room (or spending a lot of $$$). Dare I say you'll feel so fancy, you'll start asking people to use coasters.


    Promising review: "This looks very classy and sleek. It's not very big, but you can put a few things on it. It looks nice next to your couch with something displayed, holding your remotes, or just a small clock. I would definitely recommend this table to anyone looking to jazz up their space with a classy end table. For a small price, it's well worth it." —eyecandymena

    Price: $26.88 (originally $39; available in three colors)

    Price: $12.45 (originally $18.36)

    30. A duo of geometric plant hangers, because these'll make your small cacti (real or faux) look much more high-end than before. AND they won't take up room — you can hang 'em on the wall.
