    31 Inexpensive Things From Walmart That'll Make Small But Impactful Updates To Your Home

    Why keep your sticky notes loose on your desk when you could have a cat-shaped dispenser for them instead.

    1. A cute little mid-century modern-style desk lamp, because what’s better than a lighting solution that’s also a decorative focal point? With its gold tone finish, glass globe, and built-in USB port, this piece packs tons of vintage charm into one adorable and practical little package.

    2. A faux ficus tree, so you can bring a little greenery into your space without worrying about whether or not you’ll be able to keep it alive. (Even the non-gardeners among us deserve to have some green in our lives!) This 39" tall pick from Nearly Natural is ready to brighten up your home right out of the box. How soothing!

    3. A set of peel-and-stick floor tiles, because remaking your tired old floors into something you actually like looking at doesn’t have to be bank-breaking or super labor-intensive. These pretty blue tiles can pep up everything from your actual floors to, say, the front of your kitchen island or the risers on your stairs. All you have to do is measure them out, cut ‘em down to size, and then peel the backing off and stick them down.

    4. Or, a set of vinyl floor planks that’ll give you the look of hardwood floors without the need to, y’know, rip up your existing floors and straight-up replace them. Simple to lay down, these planks work just like peel-and-stick tiles do — and the material is durable, easy to clean and care for, and according to reviewers, stunningly realistic.

    5. A shaggy faux fur throw pillow with loads of whimsical charm, because we could all use a little extra fun in our lives right now. Super soft and absurdly fluffy, this pillow will transform any chair or couch into an impossibly cute space to snuggle up in.

    6. A three-wick candle in a beautiful ceramic dish that’s as lovely to look at as it is to smell. Gorgeous coffee table décor? Check. Glorious scent that'll fill your entire environment? Check. What more could you ask for?

    7. A ceramic hanging planter so you can raise some pretty little plant babies in your home without wasting valuable surface area. This white, jute rope-suspended planter brings some seriously boho-esque ambience to wherever you hang it, giving you maximum impact with minimum effort.

    8. A gold sunburst wall mirror that will open up your home in style. It’s the oldest trick in the book, but that’s because it works: Mirrors both bounce light around and give the illusion of depth, providing small spaces with what they might otherwise be missing. The unique design adds lots of visual interest, too.

    9. A curtain of warm white LED fairy lights to bring a dash of magic to your home. This starry little curtain looks enchanting hanging from a pergola or deck outside, or in a window inside — but if you want to get a little creative, try hanging it on the wall behind your bed instead. It’ll bring more light into your room, give you the look of a headboard without the bulk, and supply some mystical ~vibes~ for your space.

    10. A peel-and-stick backsplash with a rustic, wood tile look that will zhuzh up your kitchen in a flash. The four panels that make up this set — which, FYI, can cover 2.6 square feet — can be resized easily with a utility knife or a good ol’ pair of scissors. They're also self-adhesive, so you can update the entire style of your space with minimal fuss.

    11. A set of three floating geometric shelves, because who says your gallery wall has to be two-dimensional? Minimalist yet still bursting with style, these three industrial-chic shelves can be arranged together or separately to add some high-impact display space to any sad, lonely, empty wall.

    12. A fun, terrazzo-print shower curtain, so your bathroom can finally become the playful-yet-relaxing spa you always knew it could be. Bonus: This microfiber pick is machine washable, so whenever it starts to get a little…let’s call it less than pristine, you can fix that, pronto.

    13. A pretty floral side plate or two that’ll dress up your table in no time. These Corelle plates from Ree Drummond’s Pioneer Woman line might look delicate, but don’t be fooled – since they’re made of super durable, super lightweight, triple-layer Vitrelle glass, they’re strong enough to withstand heavy-duty daily use. The perfect combination of form and function? I think so.

    14. A stunning yet practical storage basket, because you’d be amazed what a difference getting your clutter out of the way can make for your space. This gorgeous, natural fiber boat basket can hold anything from blankets to toys — and it does it with such casual grace, you'll wonder how exactly it pulls it off.

    15. A botanical wall decal that’ll give you the easiest and most eye-catching accent wall ever. These calming vines stick on whatever surface you want to use them on with very little effort — and they peel right off again, too, so whether you want to reposition them or get rid of them entirely later on, you won’t ever have to do battle with residual adhesive.

    16. A shoe rack bench so even your shoe storage can be chic. Perfect for giving your most-worn pairs a convenient place to live (and neatening up your entryway while you’re at it), this compact little piece features a black frame and earthy brown seat for a timeless look that’ll never go out of style.

    17. A pair of mason jar wall sconces that’ll light up your life with rustic charm — literally. Filled with fairy lights and topped with faux flowers, these gorgeously cottagecore picks have the added benefit of running off of battery power, rather than being hardwired. Translation: You can hang them anywhere — inside, outside, on a wall, from a tree — and always be able to add a touch of magical illumination to your space.

    18. A subtle chevron-print duvet set in a classic color scheme to breathe new life into your old comforter and pillows. The duvet cover is made of double-brushed microfiber, which is both buttery soft and offers terrific temperature control (hi there, fellow hot sleepers). The whole set, which includes both the duvet cover and either one or two pillow shams depending on the size of your bed, is also machine-washable for easy care.

    19. And a set of sateen sheets, so you can snooze in both style and comfort. Soft, comfy, available in tons of colors, and — the best part! — wrinkle-resistant, these 100% cotton sheets will turn your bed into the chic dream-machine you deserve.

    20. A set of sleek, modern cabinet knobs, because just switching out your hardware can have a huge impact on the look of your kitchen or bathroom. These satin-nickel finish pulls may have a simple, streamlined silhouette, but they’re anything but boring.

    21. A couple of energy-efficient blackout curtain panels that’ll help you get the best sleep of your life, while also dressing up your windows with some subtle grace. These gorgeous, wallet-friendly panels ensure that your room will be dark enough for you to snooze without getting woken up by the light — and they’ll help regulate the temperature, keeping things cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

    The curtain panels in the color Gray

    22. A modern floor lamp with minimalist appeal to replace that double-necked combo lamp you’ve been meaning to trade in for something with more visual interest. Nothing says “classy” like a nice, linen lamp shade — especially when it’s hung from a gorgeous, geometric bridge arm.

    The lamp in the color Black

    23. A friendly lil' doormat that’ll greet your guests as soon they arrive. This mat is made of natural coir with a vinyl backing, so it’s sturdy, durable, and mold- and mildew-resistant. Also, it is so delightful. What better place is there to welcome visitors than right at the door?

    24. A colorful slipcover for your couch, because hey, guess what? Sprucing up your living room doesn’t require shelling out the big bucks for an entirely new piece of furniture. This soft, stretchy cover can completely change your couch's ~vibe~ — and with so many colors to choose from, you can adapt it to literally any aesthetic. Also, did I mention that it’s machine-washable? Because it is. And goodness knows we love a good machine-washable home accent.

    The slipcover in the color Turquoise

    25. A 10-inch hammered copper fry pan that’ll quickly go from stovetop to table, thanks to its absolutely beautiful design. From Gotham Steel, this nonstick, everyday workhorse is as stunning as it is functional; it includes a lid, and it’s even dishwasher safe! Your stir-fries and pancakes will never be the same.

    26. A roll of peel-and-stick wallpaper, so you can make over anything from a piece of furniture to a whole room without needing to faff about with complicated adhesives or wallpaper paste. From Nuwallpaper, this treetop-patterned pick is unique without being too in-your-face — and since it’s peel-and-stick, it removes as easily as it applies, making it perfect for renters, or just folks who like to change up their décor a lot.

    27. An over-the-toilet storage shelf that’ll work wonders for small bathrooms. With three large shelves up top it’s got space for spare toilet paper, extra towels, lotions and potions, cleaning supplies…pretty much anything you want readily available and need a place to stash. And with its clean, modern lines, it’ll also help pull a dated space out of the past and into the present.

    28. A nine-piece set of pantry and fridge storage bins in an array of different sizes, because a well-ordered kitchen is a happy kitchen. This set of stackable clear bins includes two wide bins, two narrow bins, an egg tray, and a can dispenser, plus a magnetic dry-erase board — meaning that with these handy bins around, you’ll never lose anything to the depths of your fridge again.

    29. A cat-shaped Post-It Note holder that'll bring a dose of whimsy and practicality to your desk. Designed to fit any standard 3-inch-by-3-inch pad of Post-It Notes, it's the purrrrrrfect addition to any home office.

    30. An eye-catching, gold icosahedron tabletop sculpture, because adding some glitz to your coffee table is literally as simple as putting this little guy on top of it. Reviewer after reviewer says this piece looks so much more expensive than it is, too. Don't worry. Your secret is safe with me.

    The table sculpture

    31. And a super cool gallery wall picture frame set that’ll take care of spacing for all your pictures in one go. The frames all hang from a main support rod, so all you need to do is hang the rod and the rest will follow — no need to hang each frame individually. How neat is that?
