    28 Top-Rated Home Improvement Products From Amazon That Are Popular For A Reason

    Including a wallpaper-smoothing kit, a stud finder, and wood-repair markers.

    Hey there! Did you know that Amazon's app has exclusive features that lets you scan barcodes to check prices IRL, use your phone’s camera to search for items with a ~single tap~, track orders in real time, and more? Download it here for free and receive $5 off your first in-app purchase.

    1. A wallpaper-smoothing kit, because you've found a pattern you LOVE but have been pondering how much work it'll *actually take* to get it up on the walls. This thing will help you crank it out in record time, as well as make sure it looks clean and professional once you've finished the job.

    2. A step ladder you can use when cleaning those *hard-to-reach places* in your home; using your rolling office chair to stand on is just NOT safe, people!

    3. A pack of stainless-steel cabinet pulls that, combined with a fresh coat of paint, will quite literally transform the look and feel of your kitchen. So cheap and easy, too!

    4. And some glossy marble contact paper to finish off the entire kitchen while we're at it. All you have to do is wipe your counters down and, with some patience, lay out the contact paper and smooth out the air bubbles as you go.

    5. Magnetic garage handles and faux windows that'll *instantly* take the curb appeal of your home to a whole new level — for a fraction of the price new garage doors would cost.

    6. A window film designed to give you privacy while *still* letting in a ton of natural light. Great for bathroom windows or apartment complexes where your view is just another apartment window.

    7. An instant stain remover spray you can use to get the mold and mildew off of your outdoor furniture. You know, the set that you "forgot" to bring inside or cover from the snow last winter...

    8. And a metallic spray paint that'll spruce up your outdoor patio furniture now that you removed all the mold and mildew from it. Fun weekend project, anyone?

    9. A discreet door draft stopper to prevent any unwanted breezes from letting themselves in your home. It might even help you save a few bucks on your utility bill!

    10. And a roll of adhesive weather stripping if you need a little extra padding around the door frame, too.

    11. A bottle of Feed-N-Wax to polish up all of your wood floors, doors, and furniture. In addition to polishing, it'll also condition the wood and help keep it from drying and fading.

    17. And some drywall repair putty, seeing as the walls in your apartment are COVERED in holes and scuffs from rearranging your gallery wall a million times over. This stuff might even help you get your security deposit back. 😎

    18. A Magic Hue lightbulb you can use to adjust the ambient light with an app on your phone. Now your place can have boring yellow light by day and transform into a groovy club by night. 🕺

    19. And some under-cabinet lights that'll brighten up the dark, dungeon-like kitchen in your apartment that has been blessed with a single window. 🙄

    21. A three-in-one silicone caulking tool that comes equipped with five replaceable pads and a steel scraper to make sealing those corners easier (and more satisfying) than ever.

    22. A stud finder that'll come to the rescue when you realize that the only place to put your TV is...on the wall. You can't just put that heavy thing up there with a couple of nails! You need to drill into the wood. This can help you do that.

    23. A Furbo camera straight from the future. Not only does it allow you to keep a watchful eye on your pet 24/7, it also syncs with your Amazon Alexa to send you barking alerts — and even lets you toss them a treat!

    24. A highly rated air purifier you can use to suck up all that dust and pollen flying around your home and prevent it from destroying your sinuses.

    25. A splurge-worthy robot vacuum that does all the dirty work for you. With the press of a couple buttons to set its cleaning schedule, this thing'll be off and running — sucking up pesky crumbs and pet hair so you can finally walk barefoot again.

    26. A set of gardening shears, because your outdoor landscaping situation is in need of some *serious* TLC.

    27. An under-the-sink water filtration system for anyone with sub-par tap water and who is looking to take the next step beyond their Brita. Why bother refilling that pitcher over and over again when you could just be filling up at the tap? 🚰

    The system hooked up in the cabinet under a kitchen sink (it's about the size of a small fire extinguisher)

    28. Lastly, a pack of cupboard bumpers, because your roommates *love* to slam the kitchen cabinets as they fix their "midnight snack" at 3 a.m.
