Decorating your home can be tricky. On one hand, you want to make sure it looks nice — but you also want to make sure you don’t blow through too much money when sprucing it up. Luckily, there are tons of cheap things on Amazon that can make any home look so much cooler.

From sleek wine decanters to silky pillowcases, I’ve made sure to include a variety of affordable items that’ll look good in your home regardless of how you like to decorate. But if you want to see more? You’ll just have to keep scrolling.


The motion-activated light that turns on when you get out of bed

Instead of stumbling around in the dark when you get out of bed at night, let this motion-activated light gently guide the way. It’ll only turn on when you get up — and since it installs underneath your bed, the likelihood of it blinding you when it turns on is incredibly small. Plus, the LED bulbs even have a lifetime of up to 100,000 hours.


A gorgeous wine decanter that works just as good as it looks

With a curved shape that works to aerate vino as you pour it, this decanter doesn’t just look good — it can also help improve the flavor of your red and white wine. It’s made from 100% lead-free crystal glass, bringing a touch of chic to shelves, bars, or even table centerpieces. And if you aren’t into wine? You can still use it to serve water, orange juice, or any other drink.


This precise food scale with more than 4,000 positive reviews

With its ultra-precise sensor, this food scale can measure ingredients in precise graduations of .04 ounces, making it perfect for portioning out your meals. You also have the option of weighing your ingredients in pounds, ounces, grams, as well as milliliters — and each order comes with batteries included.


A chic diffuser that stands out from the crowd

Whereas many diffusers have a clunky plastic exterior, this one features a faux wood grain that makes it look way more expensive than $40. The water tank can produce up to 13 hours of mist, making it great for overnight use — especially since it runs at an ultra-silent level. Plus, there’s even a color-changing LED light around the middle you can use to set a relaxing vibe.


The thermal blanket made from 100% cotton

Not only does this throw blanket have a classic waffle weave, but it’s also made from 100% breathable cotton. The result? You shouldn’t have any trouble snuggling underneath it on cool summer nights as well as on cold winter mornings. Choose from seven colors, ranging from blush pink to deep marigold.


This wireless doorbell that’s *so* easy to install

If your home didn’t come with a doorbell, this wireless one is an affordable option that’s also really easy to install. Simply attach the button to your front door using the included adhesive, then plug the two receivers into regular wall outlets inside your home — that’s all it takes. And since it has a range of up to 1,000 feet, you shouldn’t have any trouble placing the receiver nearly anywhere on your main floor.


A pitcher that lets you make cold brew at home

Buying pre-made cold brew from the store quickly becomes expensive, making this pitcher a cost-effective alternative. Its reusable filter is ultra-fine, ensuring that no loose grounds make their way into your mug — and the tough borosilicate glass won’t crack when exposed to high temperatures. Each order also includes a coffee scoop and funnel.


The floating shelves that fit into corners

Shaped to fit into any 90-degree corner, these floating shelves are the perfect place to store books, display decorations, or even keep your spice collection. They’re made from sturdy MDF, and can hold up to 11 pounds when properly mounted. But if that isn’t enough? You also have the choice of eight finishes, ranging from espresso to rustic blue.


A stainless steel utensil holder that spins 360 degrees

Since this utensil holder can rotate 360 degrees, you shouldn’t have any trouble pulling out stirrers located in the back — just give it a spin so that they’re easier to reach. There are dividers in the middle to help keep utensils from getting tangled together, and the exterior is even made from rust-resistant stainless steel. Choose from five colors.


This sleek faucet with a handy pull-down sprayer

Still using the kitchen faucet that came with your home? Now’s your chance to upgrade, as this sleek one is currently available for less than $55. It’s made from rust-resistant stainless steel, with a pull-down head to help you clean dishes from every angle. And with nine different finishes to choose from, you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one that suits your kitchen.


The glass dispensers that help keep your oils fresh

Not only do the airtight pour spouts that come with these dispensers help keep your oils fresh, but they’re also leakproof — so there’s no need to worry about spills if they get knocked over. The dark glass also helps preserve your oils against UV light degradation, and each order comes with a funnel to help you fill them up.


These sleek dispensers to create an at-home coffee bar

Level up your at-home coffee setup with this set of two chic gold syrup dispensers that come with blank labels. You can transfer store-bought pumpkin spice or vanilla syrup into them — or use them for your own homemade lavender syrup. They also look equally cool in the bathroom for holding hand soap or in the kitchen for dish soap. Aside from gold, you can choose from silver or black.


A cutting board made from gorgeous acacia wood

Whether you’re slicing fruit or preparing charcuterie for happy hour, this acacia wood cutting board is an affordable way to dress up your countertop. With a 12-inch width and an outer groove that catches juice, it’s a good size for chopping veggies and fruit. Because it’s made from acacia wood, the board is designed to hold up against thousands of knife cuts — and the compact size makes it great for kitchens with minimal storage space.


The LED light bars that won’t run up your energy bills

With an ultra-thin design that allows them to fit into tight spaces, these LED light bars are perfect for mounting underneath cabinets, inside of closets, or in nearly any other dark spot in your home.
