47 Cheap Things For Your Bedroom & Living Room That Are Effing Amazing

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

It’s easy to spend lots of time in your living room and bedroom, so it makes total sense that you’d want those spaces to feel nice and like they’re yours. Sure, some parts of the house are more functional than others — like the kitchen and bathroom — but the living room and bedroom are practically blank canvases, which makes them ideal places for personalization and decoration. In my own home, my favorite art hangs in my living room, and my headboard has shelves which are basically where I put my favorite books and knick-knacks. Of course, those aren’t the only things in there, but I mention them in particular so you know I totally understand the impulse to curate home spaces.

Fortunately, there are plenty of cheap things out there for the bedroom and living room that are effing amazing — and many of them are on this list. In fact, I’ve just gotten over my most recent urge to shift things around and re-arrange the furniture in my living room, but some of the things in this collection have me reconsidering — like the micro-suede poof covers and the storage baskets that come in coordinating sets because, who doesn’t love a coordinating basket set?

So be warned: You may be tempted to add these to your cart, too. Happy decorating and re-modeling.
