    1. A colorful kitchen cart that'll not only provide extra storage and counter space, but will also be a joy to look at.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this cart. It is the perfect little pop of color to my kitchen. I put it together, by myself, in about an hour. It feels very sturdy. There is a cabinet with a good amount of room and a little drawer above it. I definitely recommend this item." —Stacy

    Get it from Wayfair for $137.51 (available in three colors).

    2. A storage bed to somewhat compensate for the the fact that your bedroom only has one tiny closet. Finally, a place to store linens and off-season clothes!


    Read our review of this storage bed (#6 on the list)!

    Promising review: "I live in a small apartment with an even smaller bedroom. Storage is, as you can imagine, a necessity if you hope to have anything in your house at all. While it was a pain to put together (it took almost three hours and two people), this bed has been delightful. It not only has storage under the mattress (the part that lifts up) but for smaller, thinner things, you can store them under the whole bed. I have a thin art portfolio that is generally a bear to try and store and it fits just neatly under the whole bed, while thicker things, like my canvases, fit inside. It lifts and goes down quite easily (which, for someone with joint problems, is saying a lot) and the whole thing seems rather solidly built, especially for the price." —Rachel

    Get the full-size from Amazon for $498.99 (available in sizes twin–king and three colors).

    3. A wall-mounted floating desk for creating a functional workspace in the smallest of apartments. It can fold away neatly when you're done.


    Promising review: "I work at home once a week and needed a workspace but didn't want to commit an area of my house to a full office. Plus, most desks look cluttered and ugly. This little desk is perfect for my space! I have it in my living room and it opens so I can look out into my backyard through the French doors. But I can close it and tuck it away when I need more space. When open, it is the best little workspace! It is sturdy and has plenty of room for my legs underneath and my laptop on top but it also has folders and shelves to hold my key files and supplies. It blends right into the picture collage on my wall. I would highly recommend this desk." —Ariella

    Get it from Wayfair for $180.99 (available in four colors).

    4. A seagrass storage ottoman that can fit several throw blankets inside *and* double as a coffee table.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "So cute and functional! Fits three of my fluffy blankets and two small pillows!" —kkerr22

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $129.

    5. A fancy gold bar cart you can use to serve drinks or store extra glassware.


    Get it from Amazon for $165.

    6. A ladder bookshelf to make an excellent display area for your collection of potted plants.

    Promising review: "I live in a small, 700-square-foot apartment so I needed something that would not be bulky in the living room. I love, love, love this. Looks way more expensive than it is in person AND it was very very easy to put together alone. I would definitely consider buying this in other colors for other rooms." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $69.29 (available in two colors).

    7. A round drop-leaf dining table that'll fit nicely into a corner and can be pulled out when you have guests over.

    Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

    I recently moved and upgraded from a regular ol' square dining table to this practical and attractive round one. So far, I love it! Not only does it fit with my decor perfectly, but the tabletop is very stable, which can be a concern with drop-leaf tables. It wasn't hard to put together at all and it looks much more expensive than it is!

    Promising review: "We moved into a home with no real dining space so this is the perfect little table for our small dining area. The off-white color is beautiful, it’s very sturdy and easy to put together, and the price can’t be beaten. It’s a great size for a small family with the leaves down and would work for a small group to have dinner if you extend it. I would highly recommend!!" —Nick Randall

    Get it from Amazon for $141.23 (available in 26 colors).

    8. A low-profile entertainment center with plenty of compartments for your video game console and DVD collection.


    Promising review: "Beautiful piece constructed with quality materials. The instructions were clear and the materials packaged well. It was easy to put the table together, which I did by myself in about three hours. The quality surpassed my expectations." —Diane Brady

    Get it from Amazon for $224+ (available in six finishes).

    9. A glass coffee table that'll make the living room seem bigger and let you show off the pretty rug.


    Promising review: "This table is so chic and gorgeous! It can be styled in many different ways. Assembly took about 15 minutes or less and can definitely be done by one person. It's easy to move around and clean, very lightweight. Amazing buy for the price!" —Brie

    Get it from Walmart for $80 (available in two finishes).

    10. A pair of versatile nesting tables you can use together as a coffee table or separately as end tables.

    Promising review: "Such a cute little coffee table and just what I was looking for! The quality is awesome for the price. Perfect size for my little living space. Super easy to assemble and is the perfect height for my sofa. I’m going to use the little table as an outdoor patio furniture side table this summer." —Stephanie P.

    Get them from Amazon for $42.99.

    11. A standing mirror that is secretly also an armoire — no more stashing your accessories in random drawers around the house (aka wherever you can find room).


    Promising review: "This is great for getting organized! My necklaces no longer are piled together or hanging on several different jewelry holders. This has saved me so much space from the holders and multiple jewelry boxes. It really just looks like a mirror stand instead of a jewelry box. I also love that it locks." —K. Patrick

    Get it from Amazon for $107.99 (available in three finishes).

    12. A rustic coffee table with two wicker baskets to keep remotes, magazines, snacks, and other items hidden from sight.


    Promising review: "Love this coffee table. Looks great in our living room. It was really easy to put together, which was a bonus. The baskets are great for storage. Definitely recommend." —EyeHeartTarget

    Get it from Target for $171.69 (available in five finishes).

    13. A compact dining set for creating a cozy breakfast nook in your kitchen. It has a drop-leaf table and stools that tuck away within the cart when not in use.,

    Promising review: "I wasn't even planning on getting a kitchen table because I didn't want to lose anymore square footage. The way my apartment is set up, a table will be in the way no matter where it sits. But when I ran across this little gem, I changed my mind. When they say space saving, they really mean it. I especially love that the stools tuck under the table!

    The stools are NOT bar stools, so they are short, but that's to line up with the table. I also use them as TV trays sometime, so I REALLY love this table! So many uses. If you're looking for an arts and crafts table or need to save space like me, do yourself a favor and pick this thing up!" —JD

    Get it from Amazon for $118.

    14. A modern storage stool (the top opens up) that would also make an attractive side table.


    I've used this stool as a nightstand for about a year now and love it! It's easy to clean and I keep things like a notebook and extra sleeping masks inside. The best part is it's sleek and aesthetically pleasing, so it would look good in any room.

    Promising review: "I was shopping around for a couple of months trying to find auxiliary seating and storage for my stylish, but tiny space. There are many similar options on the market for sculptural, multi-purpose pieces. At this price, I figured I'd take a chance, and I'm glad I did. These are lightweight AND sturdy. This definitely looks more expensive than it is. The hidden storage may be lovely, but I'm not really 'storing' anything in there, except some linens and a bag of marbles to add weight. They make great side tables, foot rests, and impromptu stools." —M Roy Clark

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in four colors).

    15. A marble-look pub set — the ideal setup to enjoy a quick meal for two.


    Promising review: "I needed a small bar set in a very small area. I use this for extra eating space and for my son to use when he is doing his homework. It makes a very good makeshift work station. He likes it and so do I. This was fairly easy to put together. The top is a faux marble and looks very nice. The stools are surprisingly comfortable and sit completely under the bar, creating even more space." —Melissa

    Get it from Amazon for $191.77.

    16. A pretty bathroom cart to stash beauty products and towels on, especially if you have a pedestal sink with zero cabinet space.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "The cart is aesthetically pleasing and highly functional — it is small, doesn’t take up much space, but holds a lot of items. The shelving is wooden, the cart is sturdy and was exactly what I wanted." —a music lover

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $39.

    17. A glass and faux-marble console table with a sleek design that won't look cluttered in a small living room. Some reviewers also use it as a low-profile desk.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this table. It is actually as pictured. Super easy to put together, less than 10 minutes and it only took one person to put together. Sturdy and modern!" —Lisa S.

    Get it from Amazon for $84 (available in six finishes).

    18. Floating wooden shelves for providing extra storage without taking up any floor space. Plus, they just look really cool.


    Promising review: "I didn’t use these as shelves. I used them as cat stairs for my son's cat to go up to his loft bed. They have been working perfectly for that. We have a big heavy cat and they are holding up to everyday use." —KJG

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in five finishes)

    19. A retro two-tier desk so you'll have an extra surface to stash stationery items on.

    Promising review: "This desk, once put together, is very beautiful, sturdy, modern, and looks expensive. I assembled it by myself in about an hour. Highly recommend! I use it for when I work from home and I’ve loved it every time." —Alexci

    Get it from Amazon for $65+ (available in four finishes).

    20. An acrylic chair that won't overwhelm a crowded space and would look amazing with a faux-fur rug draped over it. It's a clear winner.

    Promising review: " I have quite a small living room and it adds that little bit of extra seating without cluttering up the small space; a perfect touch. Everybody wants to sit on it when they first come into the room. I am so happy with this chair!" —Ruby

    Get it from Amazon for $83.99.

    21. A storage vanity able to easily fit your entire makeup collection. Plus, it turns into a desk when closed.


    Promising review: "This is a dream come true. It's the most functional desk ever. I don't have any storage space in my bathroom so this gave me a place to put all of my bottles. I love the pop-up mirror and it works as an awesome desk, too." —Brooklyn Babe

    Get it from Amazon for $139.02+ (available in two finishes).

    22. A garment rack for an elegant way to display all the clothes that won't fit in your closet.


    Promising review: "Just moved into a nearly 100-year-old house, tiny closets and lack of storage is the norm. Put a couple of these, my wife's vanity, and an antique bench in one of the spare bedrooms and now my wife has a huge walk in closet...with a tiny closet attached." —SEB

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in two colors).

    23. A ridiculously attractive futon that'll honestly look good in any living room and conveniently fold down into an extra bed (since you don't have an actual guest room).,

    Promising review: "For $200, this is a five-star product. It was really easy to put together. It's a little firmer than what I usually like, but it's not uncomfortable. I even took a nap on it the other day. It was even a little bigger than I thought it would be. My family of three has plenty of room when we all sit on it." —Lindy M.

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $316.48 (available in eight colors).

    24. A coat rack and storage shelf to bring order to a normally chaotic entryway.

    Promising review: "It’s a great fit in my small house! It’s lightweight and I was able to put it together by myself with the tool that was supplied. Fits lots of shoes and coats. I don’t have it mounted to the wall since we aren’t allowed to put holes in them, and it still holds up great!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $81.99.

    25. A sleek nightstand for stashing away journals, books, charging cords, lip balm, and other night-time essentials.

    Promising review: "Everyone else has said it, but I'll say it again. If you are looking for a QUALITY nightstand that not only looks super stylish but is easy as pie to assemble... this is the nightstand for you. One of the best purchases I've ever made on Amazon, not one negative thing to say. BUY THEM!" —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $59.50.

    26. A versatile cube storage organizer to be whatever you want it to be — a bookshelf, wine cabinet, chest of drawers, etc.


    Promising review: "Great value for the money! Shelves look great and are very functional — great value, can not believe how affordable this piece was and how expensive looking it is!" —MarissaL

    Get it from Walmart for $61.98 (available in six colors).

    27. Wall-mount corner shelves for decorating that awkward empty area that's too small for a piece of furniture.

    Promising review: "The shelves complement my living room perfectly. After ordering one initially, I ended up buying a second because it looks so good and was able to add decoration into corners of the living room that otherwise were too small to hang anything. I get so many compliments and I’m able to store all of my little trinkets and meaningful small things that are usually bound to get put away somewhere." —Sara

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in five finishes).

    28. A minimalist magazine rack and side table that'll save space and look chic.


    Get it from Wayfair for $68.99 (available in two colors).
