2. A set of floating shelves to make your books appear light as a feather, stiff as a board.

Promising review: "I cannot believe how awesome these bookshelves look in my room. With my classic leather-bound books stacked neatly on top, these apparently floating books give the room a sense of charm and intrigue. I am so glad I got these shelves. They are easy to install and each can safely hold three of my large leather bound books. They do not wobble or shake. They are very stout and sturdy, and I do not have any worries with the weight they bear. I am confident they will securely hold to the wall and keep my books unharmed. The metal is durable and long-lasting. So many of my friends and family have complimented these statement pieces and have gotten some for their own book collections." —BurrellsGet a set of three from Amazon for $25.16 or Walmart for $30.

5. A set of wall hooks that fold up when you're not using them and transform into a seamless work of wall art.

Promising review: "Such an original and innovative design. I got this to hang my grandkids' dress-up clothes on when they are at my house. It works perfectly, and when the kids leave and capes and princess dresses get put away, the wall hooks just fold up and the entire thing becomes a wall design. This is such a great way to have wall hooks that don't look like the same old boring thing, and I love the flexibility of getting rid of the hooks when they're not needed." —LeahGet it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in three colors).

12. A ghost acrylic squatty potty — you heard it here first, pooping is ~aesthetic~ now.

Promising review: "This thing is SLEEK! I bought this for my new home's main floor guest bath. We wanted to provide guests with the convenience of squatty potty without the eyesore of the white 7" one. I feel like if Kim and Kanye had a Squatty Potty, it would be this one. I like them and I like the sleek style of this squatty potty. I find its shaped SLIGHTLY differently than my white 7" one, and I like that. I also find there's no squeak noise as I pull or push from the basin of the toilet, unlike my white one. My guests didn't notice it was there until I pointed it out. Go with the ghost acrylic — you won't regret it!" —Durga DGet it from Amazon for $82.57.

13. A sleek metal bed frame that is a literal step up from the "minimal" look of just having your mattress on the ground.

Promising review: "We love this bed frame for our memory foam mattress. It is simple and very sturdy, solid and well made. There is no movement or jiggling when lying on it. In fact we have ordered two and our grown son has one as well. It sits high enough so that one can store some items under the bed. It requires a bit of configuration to put it together, but my husband did it in 30 minutes or so. Really like this frame." —Dennis BrinsonGet it from Amazon for $135.99+ (available in twin–king sizes and three colors).

14. A wood bed frame if you want the same modern feel but listen to a lot of Bon Iver.

Promising review: "I had been searching for a bed frame for ages, but was worried about finding something online and within my budget that wouldn't turn out to be a flimsy piece of crap. I settled on this one because I needed slats for my foam mattress and I needed the extra under-bed clearance for storage. I'm extremely happy with this bed! This might be the most satisfied I've ever been with an online purchase. Assembly was so straightforward and easy that the instructions were almost completely unnecessary. Honestly, the hardest part was getting the 74lb box up the stairs by myself, but after that the assembly was a breeze! I am very impressed with how solid and sturdy it is. The frame doesn't shift or creak at all when getting on and off the bed, and it supports my foam mattress perfectly. My old metal frame had cracked and it was making the bed sag a little, making my back hurt, but switching to this frame solved that right away! I had been thinking the high profile might be overkill, but I wanted to be absolutely certain my under-bed storage drawers would have enough clearance. Turns out I actually really like the look of the high profile as well, so that was a plus." —AudreyGet it from Amazon for $136.95+ (available in twin–king sizes and two colors).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "This is the neatest floor lamp. I was looking for something unique to use in place of my harsh overhead light and this is perfect. It's light yet has a sturdy base, and the three dimming settings are really nice for when I only want a little warm light. 10/10 would buy more if I needed more. I actually saw this lamp, if not something similar, in a neighbor's place while walking home from work and wanted to find it for myself. So happy to find it on Amazon for so cheap!" —YakShack

Promising review: "I was looking for a floor pillow for a long time when I came across this one. Personally, I like to sit on my floor to do my college work very often, and this cushion is the perfect thickness so that i’m not too far off the ground, and is super dense so that I don’t feel like I’m just sitting on the ground. Also, the velvet is even cuter in person!!!! Truly one of the best and most practical decor purchases I have ever made!" —melaina44Get it from Urban Outfitters for $49 or two for $79 (available in 10 colors).

27. A midcentury modern couch Don Draper would definitely get frisky on, let's be honest.

Promising review: "I love this couch. The blue is bright and made my new apartment feel instantly happier. It's firm like other reviewers mention, but I think it's still comfy. Some of the best parts of the couch are: the ease of putting it together, the four pillows it comes with, and the felt that's already attached to the feet. The felt pieces on the feet have made it so easy to move around as I try figure where the couch is going to be. I am really happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend this couch.

34. A smart lightbulb because it's probably time for all of us to update something we use every day that was invented in 1879.

amazon.com

The bulb can be controlled from anywhere with the Kasa app, is compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Microsoft Cortana, can be scheduled to automatically turn on or off at certain times of day, and is dimmable, as shown above!

Promising review: "These were incredibly easy to set up and work exactly as described. They have a warm glow and are not harsh white lights. I downloaded the (free) Kasa app, which led me through an easy step-by-step set up. The Kasa app also had step-by-step instructions for how to then pair the bulbs to Alexa (which was super helpful for someone who had never set up any smart devices with Alexa before). They each only took about one minute to set up, including pairing with Alexa. You can voice control them with Alexa (on/off or dim) or use the app to control them when you are away from home. I am super happy with this purchase and plan to eventually replace all of my lights with these." —Chelsey

35. An acrylic vinyl holder, so your records can finally have a home that isn't a milk crate.

Promising review: "I ordered two of these to display our record collection of about 65 records, which was stacked under our buffet. I no longer wanted our vinyl stacked, and I was stick and tired of others flipping through them on the floor and then leaving them in a state of chaos. I have to say, we absolutely love these and will likely be purchasing more in the near future! We live in a small bungalow and we are limited on storage. We are also planning to move this year, so I did not want to purchase storage furniture. This was my quick solution, and they have exceeded my expectations. I love the practical, minimalist design. My friends can now easily flip through our collection and play records without using our floor. If you are contemplating this purchase, I highly recommend purchasing!" —Kaci B.
