    1. A sophisticated side chair that'll make an excellent addition to your reading nook.

    Birch Lane

    Promising review: "I'm staging a house with these, and they're pretty great. Elegant and they look more expensive than they really are." —Krista

    Get it from Birch Lane for $87.99 (available in seven colors).

    2. Peel-and-stick wallpaper for giving your room a refresh without the mess and commitment that comes with painting the walls.

    The Home Depot

    Each roll measures 20.5 inches wide by 16.5 feet long and covers about 28 square feet. There's no need for water or adhesives — just peel and stick! You can also use it to line drawers or decorate furniture.

    Promising review: "This is amazing! Love this wallpaper. If you have ever done old-school wallpaper, just forget that stuff and buy this. Great prints, excellent quality, and sooo simple to use and install. I am honestly so impressed with how this goes on the wall. I used no tools aside from a razor to trim. Just put in place and smooth out with your hand. It is beautiful and vibrant. You can reposition as needed, and when it's time to change décor, it comes off with no residue or glue to deal with. I did an accent wall and at first wasn't sure, but once I got going, I was so impressed at how easy it was to dress up any room in your house." —stevejacko

    Get it from The Home Depot for $34.97.

    Promising review: "Internet world, these pillow covers are amazing. When I started looking for pillows to spruce up the house and give an old couch new life, I assumed I’d be spending about $100 for four decent quality pillowcases. You can imagine my surprise/joy when I discovered these! These are more modern, exactly the look I was trying to achieve, for MUCH less than I was seeing on Wayfair or any other websites for similar pillows." —Allie

    7. Nesting coffee tables you can use together or separately as end tables.

    Get them from Amazon for $42.99.

    8. A retro two-tier desk to replace the wobbly one your old roommate left behind.

    amazon.com

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

    Walmart

    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 $89.90 (available in two finishes).

    10. A floral duvet set for an easy way to spruce up a plain comforter. It'll brighten up your entire bedroom!

    This set is made of microfiber and comes with one duvet cover and two pillow shams.

    amazon.com

    Each roll measures 2'x6.56' and covers approximately 13.12 square feet.

    Promising review: "This contact paper is awesome. I had a small, black, foldable plastic table from Walmart that was $10 or so, and I covered the top with this paper and my table looks super nice now. I use the table daily as my vanity table for my makeup, and looking at it first thing in the morning (compared to bumpy, black plastic) makes me quite happy, especially since it came out so smooth and perfect. The hard part was that the edges and corners of my table are slightly rounded, and at those edges, the paper doesn't stick as well. But on any other flat, cornered surface, it should work like a dream. I love this contact paper and I had leftovers to even stick on my wall (I cut out my initials). It looks really nice aesthetically, and it's worth the price! It's also super easy to wipe down because of its laminated finish. Would recommend!" —Sharon

    Get it from Amazon for $25.95+ (available in two sizes and 17 patterns).

    13. A versatile mid-century chair that would make an excellent addition to both your dining room and home office.

    amazon.com

    I bought this chair for my apartment and use it as both a computer desk chair as well as a dining chair. It's super comfortable and easy to clean — crumbs and spills just wipe right off.

    Promising review: "I use this as a desk chair, sitting in it for hours at a time for work/play. It's very good on my back and looks way more expensive than it is. The setup was incredibly simple as well. Took maybe five minutes." —Alex

    Get it from Amazon for $61.05 (available in nine colors).

    14. A drop-leaf wood table you can leave untreated for a natural look or paint to match your interior.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "I live in a studio apartment so I needed a small table, and I really wanted one with drop leaves to save space. This table is absolutely perfect for my space. It's a good size and two people can eat comfortably at it. It was easy to put together, I did it myself in about 15 minutes, including unboxing it. I also really like the wood! It smells nice and the color is very pretty in person. I plan on leaving it unvarnished and unstained for now, but I may paint it down the line after it starts to show signs of wear. It's small, it's versatile, and it looks and functions just as well as I wanted it to." —amedi

    Get it from Amazon for $77.60.

    15. A windowpane patterned pouf for adding a splash of color (and an extra seat) to your neutral living room.

    Target

    Promising review: "I was surprised at how nice this pouf is — especially at the low price. The plaid even matches on two sides. The fabric feels really comfy and the pouf doesn’t smoosh down too readily. If it does, I just plump it up like a pillow and it’s back to looking like new. It looks perfect in my room and I couldn’t be happier with it." —Mars

    Get it from Target for $45.49.

    16. An elegant fabric accent chair sure to attract a ton of compliments.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    18. A faux fur rug so you can turn a cheap plastic chair into a cozy throne.

    19. A brass reading lamp that's the perfect combination of form and function.

    Get it from Walmart for $64.88 (available in six colors).

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

    amazon.com

    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
