As a kid, I remember thinking that rainfall showerheads and fancy throw pillows must cost a fortune. And I wasn’t entirely wrong, however, Amazon has made many of those pricier items a lot more accessible. Lucky for you, that means you can take a sip of the sweet life without waking up with buyer’s remorse. Whether you’re looking for style or function, I’ve rounded up a list of 48 bougie things for your home that are actually bargains, so you don’t have to compromise.

Homeowners can spend thousands of dollars rewiring, connecting, and automating their homes, but with a few small switches, you can get the functionality of a high-end smart home without the price tag. I’ve included an outlet extender and smart lightbulb that you can control with an app to customize your home for less than $30. These small, inexpensive switches feel luxurious and will wow your guests.

Once your home is fully automated, it’s time to update some of your decor. I’ve added a faux fur blanket, vintage plant stand, and decorative mirrors that look like works of art. A few expensive-looking upgrades can really complete a home — elevating it for less than you might think. Be sure to check out the memory foam bath mat or gold-finished cheese slicer that is extra AF in the best way.
