    1. A linen-upholstered convertible sofa with fold down arms and back to turn into a sleeper for any unexpected guests or unexpected spats with the S.O.


    Promising Review: "Love it! Perfect size for attic hang-out space. Love that it can be converted to a chaise, a small bed, or a chair. It is also comfortable and good quality for the price." —Caroline from Bayonne, NJ

    Get it from Wayfair for $299.99 (originally $339.99, available in four colors, part of the Novogratz collection).

    2. A five-drawer lingerie chest that'll accommodate not only your undies but whatever other clothing or clutter you see fit to cram in there.

    A deep red five-drawer chest with round black knobs

    Promising Review: "Love this chest. We have the white one and use it for storage in our entryway for keys, sunglasses, winter gloves and things like that. It holds a lot of stuff and looks nice!" —Amy from Wichita, KS

    Get it from Wayfair for $185.99 (available in three colors).

    3. A stainless-steel kitchen cart with solid bamboo wood top to add some additional prep and storage space. And if the kitchen is starting to feel a bit cramped just wheel it on over to another room.

    A metal frame kitchen cart on four caster wheels with two shelves and a wooden top

    Promising Review: "This thing is awesome. Needed extra counter space. This is my special pie crust counter. Plenty of room, wipes clean, holds lots of extra utensils that I like to keep handy." —Karen from McAlester, OK

    Get it from Wayfair for $174.99 (originally $189.99).

    4. A wooden vanity set with mirror, because the lighting in the bathroom is awful, the mirror is always fogged-up, and putting on your makeup should feel less like a chore and more like me-time.

    A white vanity and chair with wooden legs, a circular mirror, and cushion top chair

    Promising Review: "I absolutely love this vanity set. Literally took like 20 minutes to assemble and add a kind of rustic earthy vibe to my bedroom because of the wooden leg details." —Elizabeth from Buffalo, NY

    Get it from Wayfair for $193.99.

    5. A four-piece accent shelf to put all those tchotchkes where they belong: on display, collecting dust, and out of harm's way.

    A weathered oak wall-mounted shelf for small items

    Promising Review: "Perfect size for my small space. Holds a good number of items. I did use different anchors. Love Wayfair." —Rhonda from Vista, CA

    Get it from Wayfair for $40.99.

    6. A tufted storage ottoman that does so much (lets you rest your feet on it and stores whatever junk you decide to cram inside) but asks so little in return.


    Promising Review: "Perfect size for board game or cards. Love the storage. The top opens easily and stays open. It really holds a lot. It's not too heavy for one person to move around, but the rug it's on is very low/no pile. The top is not very squishy — very firm. It works as seat, foot rest, and even spot to build legos. Cats also love to lie on it." —Melanie from Tennessee

    Get it from Wayfair for $196.99 (originally $249.99).

    7. A hall tree with shoe storage to efficiently replace that nail in the wall where you've been hanging your coat. Plus the built-in bench becomes a shoe removal station (which is totally a thing if you want it to be).

    Promising Review: "I was looking for something to put right next to the front door that could hold bags, jackets, etc. This hall tree for the bill perfectly. Not only does it look great (matches all the other furniture in the house perfectly) but it also is sturdy and holds all the items I was looking for it to hold, with room to spare. It was also a breeze to assemble on my own." —LR from Lyndhurst, NJ

    Price: $81.99.

    8. A cube bookcase for displaying your favorite hardcovers and paperbacks with an added pop of color in any corner of your home.

    A bright lime green floor-standing bookcase with three shelves

    Promising Review: "It was exactly what I needed to fill an unattractive gap between cabinets in a small kitchen, and provide some storage space at the same time." —Nancy from Connecticut

    Get it from Wayfair for $33.99 (originally $69.99).

    9. A tri-toned three-piece nesting coffee table with metal legs, which can work together to form one multi-leveled surface or split apart for individual use. Even makes for a solid side table.

    Three small oval-top tables with black legs

    Promising Review: "Absolutely perfect! I love the sizes and they double as a coffee table, light stand, or plant stand. Perfect for small or large spaces. Looks fab! You will not be disappointed with these!" —Kristy from Pleasant Hill, CA

    Get it from Wayfair for $189.99 (originally $359.99, available in two colors).

    10. A floating desk (don't worry it's not haunted but it is kind of magical) for creating a workspace when you need it and hiding it when you can't stare at your computer screen one second longer.

    Promising Review: "I love my little desk! It was very easy to install. Easy to clean. I can keep my laptop, iPad, and miscellaneous when lock. Saves a lot of space." —Cynthia from Studio City, CA

    Get it from Wayfair for $116.99.

    11. A set of four, metal, backless stackable bar stools that you've probably sat on somewhere else and thought, "These would look great in my place, if only I knew where to get them?"

    Four gunmetal-colored bar stools

    Promising Review: "Great value! Very sturdy, comfortable, stacking feature is a huge space saver when not in use. Were actually more attractive in person than in photos online. Would definitely buy again!" —Kristin from St. Louis, MO

    Get it from Wayfair for $139.99+ (available in two colors).

    12. A metal etagere (aka over-the-toilet-storage) with aluminum shelves which just might allow you to start referring to your bathroom as the water closet.

    A tall, thin black framed etagere with two small drawers in the middle and two shelves above

    Promising Review: "Perfect for bathrooms that don't have a ton of storage. Gives the space a perfect urban chic look." —Holly from Plano, TX

    Price: $149.99 (originally $249.99).

    13. A solid wood storage bench, because when you think about it, shouldn't all benches have some storage capacity? They're not chairs. They're not going anywhere. They stay put. So they should hold some stuff too.

    A reddish natural wood grain storage bench with arm rests and back

    Promising Review: "Fits my space perfectly. Easy to assemble. Sturdy enough I’m not worried about my little one climbing on it but not so heavy that I can’t move it in assisted." —Jennifer Lynn from Nepean, ON

    Get it from Wayfair for $224.99 (originally $235.05).

    14. A two-tier, steel bar cart with glass shelves that can open up much-needed cabinet space while you're opening up a nice bottle of vino or mixing up a tasty cocktail.

    A hammered bronze two-level bar cart

    Promising Review: "Couldn't be happier with this bar cart. It also serves as an end table, so it's double useful, and the glass means it doesn't take up much eye space in our small condo. Easy to assemble." —Susan from San Francisco, CA

    Get it from Wayfair for $136.99.

    15. A matte finish, weather-resistant three-piece iron bistro set for outdoor dining and drinking or conversing and contemplating. Somehow that orange color just works!

    A bright orange metal set of two chairs and one round table with thin legs

    Promising Review: "I got this set in purple and it is fantastic. If you have a small space, the set will work perfectly without being overpowering. It was very easy to put together, time being about 15 minutes with only one set of hands. I feel that the iron set will last at least a few seasons without looking too shabby." —Kjell from GA

    Get it from Wayfair for $145.99 (available in four colors).

    16. A dining table with powder-coated metal legs for keeping the guestlist for fine dining at a minimum but still allowing for enough elbow room no matter what meal you're sitting for.

    Promising Review: "Awesome little table. The look is great. Easy to assemble. I would recommend to anyone in a small condo. Be sure to count chair space as you cant fully push them in due to the legs of the table." —Steph from QC

    Get it from Wayfair for $239.99 (originally $329.99).

    17. A Kohler single-door, frameless mirrored medicine cabinet constructed from anodized aluminum and tempered-glass, because bathroom storage space is always at a premium and there's usually only one way to go: up on the wall.

    A mirrored metal medicine cabinet with interior mirrors and three shevles

    Promising Review: "Our master bathroom was starved for space. I surface mounted two of these over our double vanity and it was the storage solution that we desperately needed. Surface mount installation was straightforward. There’s also an option for recess mount if your walls can accommodate it. The cabinets are reversible (you can just flip it upside down) so you can choose whether the mirrored front hinges on the left or right. Highly recommend!" —Gaston from Lorton, VA

    Get it from Wayfair for $147.99 (originally $224.75).

    18. A tufted upholstered storage platform bed with four rollout drawers to store linens, out-of-season clothes, or even shoes. The best part? You'll never have to vacuum under it until you move!

    A ivory-velvet color bed frame with a large drawer opening on one side

    Promising Review: "Bed is exactly what I was looking for. Low to the ground so my cat can't get under it. Storage big enough I could get rid of my bulky dresser. Plus it just looks nice. Only downside is that the slats the mattress sit feel a little cheap not sure how long they will last." —Nichole from Paso Robles, CA

    Get it from Wayfair for $539.99+ (available in three sizes and three colors).

    19. A secretary desk with hutch that's more of a cabinet-meets-standing-desk (with room for laptops only) situation and includes a cable management system for cutting down on clutter.

    A vertical seafoam color desk with one drawer and three cubbies

    Promising review: "Nice little desk with an area for your essentials. I finally have a place for all my bills and stamps and such. Sits higher than a regular desk and really no desk area to write on. More for storage and fitting in a small space to put things. I also put my printer on the second shelf which works out for us. Was exactly what I wanted." —Patricia from Stacyville, IA

    Price: $239.99.

    20. A television stand to accommodate TVs up to 49-inches with interior shelves and a cabinet for displaying knickknacks or hiding any unsightly media devices (looking at your router).

    A white television stand wit two shelves, brown legs, and a yellow cabinet door

    Promising Review: "I’m so thrilled with this stand. It was really easy to assemble and the white with the brown legs are so clean looking. The shelves are great for displaying collectibles and art, but having the closed door space means it also has storage. It’s held up well since purchasing and I just love it!" —Erica from Collingswood, NJ

    Get it from Wayfair for $143.99 (originally $349, available in seven colors).

    21. A three-piece set of C-shaped nesting tables that's like a Matryoshka doll for your living room. Use them individually for multiple tasks and then stack them within each other whenever you're finished.

    White nesting tables tucked within each other in size descending order

    Promising Review: "Great nesting tables for the price! Our family uses these tables every day in our game room. They're great to put your drinks on. They're just enough and not overpowering and heavy. Easily moveable and makes rearranging easy. I would buy again!" —Maria from Gibsonia, PA

    Price: $175.99 (originally $199.99).

    Remember, when you don't live with Uncle Phil and Aunt Viv you're going to have to give a little more thought about what furniture is going to fit in your living room.
