    Promising review: "My kitchen window is on the sidewalk near the community mailboxes. Lots of people walking by. I loathe mini blinds that collect dust and grease, especially since the stove is next to the window. Curtains are better, but still collect cooking smells and grease particles. I installed this in about 10 minutes. It lets in light, but hides me from nosy people." —Gayle Smith

    Amazon, Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    I own this! The old tile floors in my rental are looking a little grim, so I decided to layer rugs and cover up as much of the floor as I could (pictured above, right). I loved this bath mat so much I added it to the top of the pile! It absorbs moisture easily, is a cinch to clean in the laundry, and it's super soft. Plus it's dang good looking...but I might be biased.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this canopy! It's great for the price. It takes a minute to figure out which way it goes on the bed but don’t get discouraged, you’ll figure it out. This is meant to hang from the ceiling but you can make it work on posts. I tied the hook strings around the bed post and it holds great. It’s a great canopy." —Shonteka

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in three colors).

I originally got it to use as a decorative throw, but it is now my go-to blanket. I am only 5'3" so it covers me fine but it is a very stretchy material so I bet it would fit over anyone's toes.

    Promising review: "I LOVE this vase! I like random, colorful decor and I’m so glad this popped up. It’s very sturdy and the colors are vibrant so you can tell it’s high quality. This vase only holds a small bouquet of flowers, it’s definitely more of a fun item than a practical one. I love how unique it is and it’d make a great gift, too!" —Drew A.

    Promising review: "I usually buy bedding from Pottery Barn because of the excellent quality. I did however fall in love with this pattern and decided to take a chance for the value, especially since the inside of the duvet cover comes with loops to attach to the comforter. The duvet set arrived in one day and was nicely packaged. The quality is excellent and the pattern is beyond my expectations. This is better than Pottery Barn!" —LA
