    41 Home Improvement Products To Make You Feel Like You’re Living In A Brand-New Space...Without The Hassle Of Moving

    You don't have to be super handy to give your home some simple upgrades that can make all the difference.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. Some fake wood contact paper that's sure to improve any surface you use it on.,

    Promising review: "Needed to cover up damage on an imitation wood cabinet door. Replacement for the door was $40, but figured I would try this out first. The color is almost almost an identical match and the contact paper went on smooth and easily. You honestly cant tell its not part of the original door. I even tried pulling it off to see if it would reset with out issue and it did just as expected. So if you make a mistake or apply crooked, there is a good chance you can pull it back and reset with out any issue." —Ashton Humphrey

    2. A set of thick velvet slip covers that simply slip over sofa cushions so you can feel like you have a whole new couch without breaking the bank or having to go down a complicated DIY route.

    Reviewer before/after of their couch with the pink velvet slip added. The after pic shows couches that look brand new and completely different.

    This set even comes with nonslip straps to ensure your new seats ~sit~ perfectly still and stay in place.

    Promising review: "I have never been so excited about a slipcover. Total transformation of our couch and love seat. I was worried about it not working on our leather couch, but it stays on really well due to the straps and the separate cushion covers. LOVE." —Brian/Liz

    Get it from Amazon for $43.49+ (available in 10 colors and two sizes).

    3. Some classy-looking peel-and-stick tile to dress up your walls and make your home feel fancier than it actually is.

    The tiles installed on a wall

    Promising review: "I’m very pleased with this product. They are very shiny and look beautiful in natural light. They are textured and look very real. Honestly I didn’t do the best job installing them but you can’t see any mistakes unless you really stare at them up close! So even if you don’t have a diy thumb, you can do it!! The white 'grout' on the white tile helps hide mistakes as well! Definitely would recommend. :)" —lauren porter

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99 (available in five colors).

    4. A set of solid brass, textured cabinet drawer pulls and knobs that look and feel way more luxurious than what was on the cabinets when you moved in.

    Plank Hardware

    Promising review: "They look amazing and are of such great quality. I was super impressed with the sturdy weight of the pulls. They look so smart, and I am glad I was able to dress up my Ikea dresser!" —Gabriella Marine

    Get it from Plank Hardware on Etsy for $10.27+ (available in seven sizes/styles).

    5. Some trendy Edison bulbs to replace stale white lights with something a little warmer that'll give your space a charming vintage feel.


    Promising review: "I'm in love. These Edison bulbs are a phenomenal addition to just about any room in the home. I bought these bulbs for my bedside table lamps. They're a perfect addition to my Steampunk industrial themed bedroom. Definitely recommend these Edison bulbs. Side note: my bedside table lamps are touch lamps with three dimming levels. The bulbs work on all three dimming levels." —Zachary

    Get a pack of four from Amazon for $14.99.

    6. Some Command hooks that'll make organizing and decorating way easier. No tools needed! They're strong enough to hold a wide variety of items, and you can easily move or remove them whenever you want without leaving behind any holes, sticky residue, or other marks that your landlord would just LOVE to charge you for.,,

    "I recently set up a little Command hook mask corner by my apartment door, and it has been SO HELPFUL — instead of rooting through my masks to find the one that matches best (I'm a vain critter at heart) I can see all the clean ones I have available right in front of me, and don't forget to put it on when I'm in a rush. I also use it to hang my sports masks after I sanitize them and am waiting for them to dry! As for how the Command hooks work — these have an adhesive on the back for easy application to the wall, which you can pull down on once you're ready to uninstall it without doing any damage to the wallpaper or paint." —Emma Lord, BuzzFeed Staff

    Promising review: "I just moved into a brand-new apartment and didn't want to put holes in the walls. I have purchased quite a variety of the 3M Command mini hooks, wire hooks, cord bundlers, picture hangers, photo bars, display shelves, extra adhesive tabs in different sizes, etc. It will be a long time before I go back to using nails. These Command products are the greatest! I recently found one of the unused adhesive tabs in the pocket of something that had gone through the washer and dryer and it STILL worked! ! ! Thanks for a terrific, easy to use product." —LJE

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    7. A brick dyeing kit for anyone who wants to zhuzh up their exposed brick walls with a little more color and variety.

    before: tan brick fireplace stained with soot, after: bricks painted in grey, white, and brown

    It works on brick, stone, block, and mortar without ruining the texture of the surface!

    Promising review: "I had a brick repair on the wall in the front of my house. They did not match the rest of the brick at all, and I was embarrassed every time I walked past it. When I bought my kit, I didn’t know what to do with it at first, but I got great service. One of the Masonry Cosmetics guys helped me. I sent him samples of the brick and pictures and he figured out the stain colors for me. He also noticed something that I never would have thought of on my own: the mortar color was wrong and had me fix that first. Fixing that was the icing on the cake. Great product and even better service." —Gabe Williams

    Get it from Amazon for $119.

    8. Some easy-to-install medallions to upgrade your recessed lighting into something with a little more character.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.95.

    9. A sleek (but ventilated!) cable box cleverly designed to hide those ugly piles of tangled cords cluttering up your floor space.

    Plus, now your kids and/or pets won't decide those cords are their new favorite dangerous toys.

    Promising review: "The quality of this is great and I love that it makes my desk look so much more organized. It has many openings and can fit a larger extension cord inside of it." —nancy simmons

    Get it from Amazon for $15.69. Check out an option that'll blend in with wood floors.

    10. Some wood polish and conditioner with beeswax and orange oil that'll repair your scratched and dinged-up furniture and floors like a magic lil' eraser.

    Promising review: "This stuff is absolutely AMAZING. My wife and I were getting tired of looking at our worn-out cabinets and wood paneling and were very close to paying a professional thousands of dollars to refinish it all, but then we came across this product. Our paneling and cabinets were looking rough. We have two dogs that jumped up and scratched places. We also had an area that was damaged by water spots where our dog bowls were. Several other areas were just worn from heavy traffic. This stuff was like a magical eraser for water spots, scratches, scuffs, and any other blemish. We simply wiped the product on with a paper towel and let it sit for 20 minutes before wiping it off with a clean towel. Everything looks brand-new. I'm buying a couple more so we can finish our cabinets and wood paneling. We're so glad we found this product." —Kris

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98.

    11. A bottle of wallpaper stripping spray so you can strike the previous tenant's decor choices from the record and never speak of them again.


    Promising review: "I have been putting off removing this horrid wallpaper for years, mainly because of the removal horror stories. As it turns out it was rather easy. 1. I used the Chomp scorer. Use it gently moving it in concentric circles, horizontal and vertical. 2. Use the Chomp liquid liberally, let it soak, use more, let it soak until you see paper bubble up. If paper is not coming off easily use more and let soak. Key is letting it soak. 3. Use scraper to start removal. On a large part of mine the paper and glue came off in sheets with no scraping. Other times the top layer came off and the backing and glue needed some scraping. If it's not coming off easily use more liquid and let it soak." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97

    12. Some cabinet paint so you can stop complaining about how they don't go with anything else in your otherwise flawlessly styled kitchen.


    The kit comes with two cans cabinet paint, a roller arm, two roller covers, and an angled paint brush; it requires no stripping, priming, or top coat or sealer, and there's no need to remove your cabinet doors.

    Promising review: "Amazing! Amazing! Amazing. Did take more than one coat though. My cabinets were bare wood and I still needed a couple of coats. (Five to be exact, but that was just me being extra.) My kitchen is medium-sized, not too big, and it only took up one can. But I still went over a couple more times just to get a nice coating. I also let it sit for some days and saw the wood was sucking up the paint in some areas so I went over it again. The project ideally does take one day like the promotion video says, but one day as in 24 hours. This took my kitchen from looking like a cheap rental apartment kitchen to a high-quality kitchen with just this paint and new knobs. The paint is perfect for cabinets — it's not too thick, so you still see the wood grains. It comes with EVERYTHING you need. I didn't have to buy a thing. The project is super easy, paint dries fast, and I did it at first by removing the cabinets but it wasn't necessary at all. Just make sure you don't leave any dripping because it would make your cabinets look cheap. I would recommend EVERYONE to purchase this and give your cabinets a chance before making a big investment in new cabinets. Wood is wood and it can be refinished." —Brandon Moronta

    Get it from Amazon for $69.95 (also available in gray, mint, black, and white).

    13. A grout paint pen you can use just like a regular marker to easily cover up the years and years of dirt and grime that are keeping your bathroom from ever looking truly clean.

    Promising review: "This stuff is amazing! After over 10 years of the grout not being cleaned, and a botched repair job, the bathroom floor in this house looked horrendous. Two pens covered the entire bathroom floor, with plenty left over in the second pen, even with applying two to three layers (which you will definitely need as the paint is a bit thin and also absorbs into the grout). Super easy to apply, works exactly like a regular paint marker. Be sure to press the pen tip on a separate (thick) cloth to activate it before actually using on the grout so you don't end up with a huge mess on the tile when the paint floods out at first. If you see the first side of the tip is getting frayed, just pull it out and turn it around to the other side." —regalle

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors).

    14. A prismatic window film – it's easy to stick on any glass surface for an extra layer of privacy *and* some gorgeous rainbow reflections that'll make your space feel a little more magical.

    szero4 / Via, Rachael G. / Via

    Check out BuzzFeed editor Bek O'Connell's full write-up on this rainbow window film.

    Promising review: "This window film is just STUNNING! I used it for the bottom half of my windows on my main floor for added privacy, so I don’t always have to keep my curtains closed! I wasn’t expecting all the beautiful colors the film presents throughout the day. It’s like having crystal prisms all over the house and it changes from minute to minute! Applying it is also very easy, I recommend getting the application kit that is recommended by Amazon." —Stacy M. Ambrose

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98+ (available in seven sizes).

    15. Some pre-made wall panels so you can impress everyone by telling them you installed professional molding yourself, when in reality, you did no such thing.

    reviewer's wall with panels installed and painted white to add depth to wall

    Reviewers attached these in different ways, with some just using mounting tape in apartments for no damage to walls. Others installed them on doors and kitchen islands!

    Promising review: "Moved into an apartment with an ugly old plain front door that has seen better days. Since I cannot replace the door I decided to spruce it up, and these frame pieces are going to do the trick. They can be nailed or glued on, and then I have some colorful paint to cover them and the door...making the door look like it always was an upscale door with panels. I am happy with this purchase." —tj44

    Get a single panel from Amazon starting at $6.14 (available in sets and tons of sizes).

    16. A rain showerhead to transform your normal ol' shower into the ultimate spa resort experience.


    Promising review: "It was super easy to install and works amazing! I love it so much and the flow of water is perfect and so relaxing. It's a real steal for the price (which had made me skeptical it would work right). It works so great though, super luxurious." —Sarah Katherine

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99 (available in two sizes and three colors).

    17. A five-light pendant to step up your lighting game with some rustic, industrial charm.

    19. A surface cover to fool everyone into thinking your counters and tables are made from gorgeous, expensive marble.


    Check out our write-up of this inexpensive and super cool marble adhesive surface cover!

    Promising review: "I wanted to spruce up my rented apartment's kitchen counter, and this contact paper did not disappoint. The contact paper is super sticky, but no matter how many times you messed up (and I've messed up A LOT!), the contact paper will still be sticky. There is a technique to sticking it so you don't get bubbles (we used credit cards to force out the bubbles), so you will have to play around with it. Highly recommend it!" —G. Chen

    Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in four sizes).

    20. A jar of front door paint that comes in a variety of bold *and* subtle colors to ensure that your door meets your exact style preferences., Amazon

    Promising review: "WOW, this exceeded all our expectations. Easy to apply, dries very fast, and it's holding up very well. It's been over a year since we painted the front doors and they look great. They are easy to clean too." —Rimfire

    Get it from Amazon for $35.06+ (available in 22 colors).

    Plus, these bulbs come with a lot of super cool features! You can set specific times for the bulbs to turn on and off, use their "sunrise" and "sunset" modes to ease you in and out of the day, sync with your music so the lights change based on the rhythms and dynamics of your favorite songs, AND you can use your camera and photos to select the specific color you want your bulb to match.

    Promising review: "I love this lightbulb! The app you download for it is very user friendly, and I adapted to it very quickly. You can adjust brightness and the color all from your phone. One of my favorite features is 'scene.' It has a variety of options like 'romantic,' 'reading,' and the coolest in my opinion: 'sunrise/sunset.' Over the span of 15 minutes, it mimics the colors of a sunrise/sunset. It goes from red, to orange, to purple, etc. It’s a very cool lightbulb and I recommend it to all of my friends." —Kristina Adamik

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

    23. Or some color-changing, self-adhesive LED light strips that make it easy to change the vibe of the room with your mood. You can switch the color and dim the lights via remote control. Plus, the strips are easy to cut and link together to get the size just right for your space.,,

    Promising review: "These lights are absolutely stunning! There are so many settings on the remote to attend to anyone’s needs! The lights can flicker, dim, become a disco room, and can also stay on one color of you’d like! My favorite thing is you can dim the light or you can make them brighter! 😍 very easy to install and very worth the money!" —Brittney

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two sizes).

    Promising review: "I found out about this kit a few weeks ago. I redid my mother's countertops first and was so pleased with the results, I bought a second kit and did mine this weekend. I am not a crafty person, so if I can do it, anyone can. Just be sure you follow the step-by-step instructions on the included DVD. They came out great!" —Sarah W. Fallon

    Promising review: "As a new homeowner, I am learning things as I go along. I bought a condo that has very outdated recessed light fixtures (not to mention CFL bulbs!). I bought my pendant lighting before I realized I can't just easily change them within an hour. Thankfully, after watching Youtube tutorials, it led me to this amazing product and I was able to install my pendant lights without having to pay an electrician hundreds of dollars to do it for me!" —Erika B.

    33. Some peel-and-stick wallpaper to make boring walls feel more homey — then simply remove when you're looking for a change!

    The all-white, faux-brick print paper

    Promising review: "I'm very happy with this! The wall I put it on is about 9 ft. wide-by-8 foot high, there is one window, and my baseboards are about 6 inches high — I ordered three rolls but only used two (with waste). Our house is VERY old so the walls are not flat and the corners are not an even 45 degrees, that's why I had more waste than I think I would have in a newer home. I did not have trouble matching the pattern (I recommend matching up the side from top to bottom then smoothing it out from there rather than going from top to bottom). I was able to cut around the windows with ease; repositioning was easy. It's a little awkward at first, but once you get the first piece up it the rest is easy. I did this myself and it took about two and half hours (it took about 40 minutes just to get started because our walls are so wonky, so I imagine a flat plumb wall would be much faster). I used a flat plastic paper-smoothing tool to smooth it out as well as the palms of my hands. I wouldn't hesitate to use this product again." —Common Sense

    Get it from Amazon for $23.55+ (visit the shop page for more colors and designs, including a stone pattern, a brown brick pattern, and a chevron pattern).

    34. Some spray paint that'll turn any piece of furniture into something uniquely yours.

    Promising review: "If used correctly, this achieves excellent coverage. I have used it on (sanded) aluminum, on previously powdered coated steel, on raw mild steel, on brushed titanium. With proper application, the results were always excellent. That said, it's not an easy paint to use. If you just 'spray and pray', without surface preparation and with only one coat, it will make for a very terrible, blotchy finish. But if you know what you are doing, this is an excellent product." —Filippo Beretta

    Vanity with a three-section mirror, each with a ring of lights around the outside, illuminating it

    Promising review: "It looks beautiful on my new vanity! The brightness is incredible, and I love the dimmer feature. To line my mirror, I used about half the roll, and I wish it came with another plug/dimmer for the second half! I’ll definitely be ordering them. The light is strong, and shows you ALL imperfections (which I guess is the point, but wow, surprise!!) I am now hooked, and I'm telling my husband all the things in our home that HAVE to be lined with lights!" —Jenni P.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    38. Some stencils that'll turn surface into a stunning work of art!

    If you have any questions, check out this video tutorial on wall stenciling!

    Promising review: "I stenciled an unpainted dresser for my daughter's room and this stencil worked GREAT. If I were to do it again, I would order two stencils, as the repetitive stenciling began to clog up the stencil and the pattern became smaller and smaller as I worked — even though I tried to wash off the paint part way through the project. I used chalk paint, which is a bit heavier than your typical acrylic and I did the entire front of the dresser, not just a border." —Little Kob

    Get it from Amazon for $7.12+ (available in three styles).

    39. A set of five honeycomb-style hexagon shelves that'll give your walls a little more pizzazz! You can hang them individually or combine them to create a geometric pattern that's all your own!

    Promising review: "We received our shelves last night and I LOVE THEM! They are exactly as described and the perfect size for the wall in our hallway. They are also sent with nails for you to hang them. I cannot say enough great things about Joey. I was a little leery about hanging them because people posted so many different ways of arranging them, but I reached out to Joey and he showed me the simplest way! He was so kind and responsive. Super friendly seller! I would absolutely purchase from him again and recommend his work!" —Kristine Tran

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these lights. I bought them for my dorm in college because bad lighting puts me in a weird mood. These lights are beautiful and made the room feel warm, cozy, and homey. They also helped with 'winter blues' that I always get because I live in Michigan and the winter weather is always cold and gloomy, so having nice lighting helped a lot. I received tons of compliments on them every time someone came into my room. I love these lights so much that I bought another set to hang in my room at home. Just buy these beautiful lights!" —Madelynn K.
