Peel-and-stick wallpaper, pendant lights, and more affordable things that’ll upgrade your living space for less.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

1. A set of peel-and-stick tiles so perfect for any backsplash around your home that needs an urgent update. The best part? No grout or expensive tools are needed to transform your bathroom or kitchen. Just peel off the protective film on the back of the adhesive side of the tile, stick the tile on wall, and that’s it!

on right, same kitchen with new black and white peel-and-stick tiles in areas under white cabinets

Each pack comes with 10 11.8″x11.8″ self-adhesive tiles that are heat resistant and moisture resistant, plus easy to wipe if they get dirty. 

If you’d like to create the tile layout above, it’s so easy: certain tiles come with an area called “overlap here,” so you’ll know where each tile goes! Just align a tile with the jagged edge in the “overlap here” area, and you’ll get that tile overlap effect in no time.

Promising reviews: “I absolutely love this backsplash!! It was easy to install and looks like real tile once it’s on the wall! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to add backsplash to an area of their house while staying on a budget. It will turn out looking great! JUST A NOTE: We used an adhesive spray to make sure the tile stays in place. Better safe than sorry!” —Anna

“Turned out beautifully! Before and after photos attached. I did not install it, so I can’t say how easy it was. This was an economical alternative to a real backsplash for a rental property. I will update my review if I see any problems after going back over there today. Very impressed!” —BGFAtlanta

Get the set from Amazon for $18.98.

3. A wood-cleaning polish to make your dull and cracked hardwood floors shiny again. A protective coating of beeswax, carnauba wax, and orange oil minimizes fading, conditions dry spots, and brings wood surfaces back to their former glory.

A reviewer showing previously washed out floors looking brighter and cleaner after using the product on them

Reviewers have also used this polish on other wood surfaces, including kitchen cabinets, dining tables, and antique furniture!

Promising review:This product is worth every penny and goes a very long way. We had tired oak floors that haven’t been refinished in over 50 years. They were dried out and washed out. This product took away decades in an hour with a few rags and a lot of elbow grease. One word of caution: Floors are very slippery for a few days after use. Be very careful walking around. As a bonus, it smells amazing. It has a natural orange peel smell that is fresh and clean and not at all harsh or chemical. Highly, highly recommend.” —GMD

Get an 8-ounce bottle from Amazon for $8+ (available in three sizes). 

4. Chalk paint for improving the look of interior brick or furniture that’s turned a questionable color. A fresh coat of this acrylic formula will leave you thinking, “Amazing, I don’t need to spend a lot of money on remodeling or adding more pieces to my living space.”

This matte paint is designed for multiple surfaces, including ceramic, furniture, metal, and wood.

Promising review:This paint works marvelously for staining interior brick! I researched for a long time and looked at many project reports for staining a raw brick fireplace. Finally, I committed to this chalk paint, and my fireplace looks better than any I have seen elsewhere. I diluted it to a half-paint, half-water ratio, applied one coat with a brush, and worked it into holes and crevices with a sponge. Very easy to do, especially if surroundings are appropriately protected from the very thin splashy paint.” —maina donaldson

Get it from Amazon for $18.81+ (available in 15 colors and two-packs).

5. Stick-on lights that’ll give your kitchen a soothing glow, no matter what time of day it is. The cabinets above your appliances and counters will be *chef’s kiss* amazing with a little illuminating.

This kit includes a remote that can adjust the brightness! 

Promising review: “If you rent and want under-counter lights, look no further. These lights are phenomenal! It took me all of five minutes to install in our kitchen under the counters. Before all we had was a horrible fluorescent light, and now I can just use these, and it’s perfect. I even had a strip left over and was able to put lights under all of my counters and above the stove. The dimming feature is great, and we use the timer all the time when we leave our dogs home early in the morning or late at night so they have some light. Would definitely buy again.” —Ashlyn McKenzie

Get the six-piece kit from Amazon for $20.99 (available in two light colors).

6. Digital art prints guaranteed to brighten up the wall behind your couch or kitchen table. Inspired by global flowers and fruits, this colorful set has six designs you can arrange any way you like. Just download, print, and place inside frames for a wow-worthy display.

No tools are required for these strips: Just prep the wall with isopropyl rubbing alcohol, click a pair together to lock them in place, stick them on the frame, press the frame on the wall, and that’s it.

Note: Even though these strips are great for hanging up picture frames, wall art, and mirrors, they’re not recommended for mounting shadow boxes, shelves, or tapestry.

8. A cabinet painting kit for your kitchen, because it’ll give your cabinets a seamless and affordable revamp without ripping them out and replacing them. Paint them all one color *or* change it up with a different shade for top and bottom cabinets.

Includes two 31-ounce cans of Nuvo cabinet paint, one roller arm, two roller covers, two stir sticks, and one angled paint brush. Each covers 100 square feet of cabinet surface.

Promising review: “This product was super easy to use. We went with the tips in the reviews and bought nicer foam rollers specifically for cabinets, and I’m so happy I did; it made it so we barely had to use a brush because of how the foam rolls over the side. We also took the doors and handles off, which I recommend also. It definitely wouldn’t have turned out as nice if we left them on.

This took four coats and five in the larger areas (i.e., next to the fridge, etc.). Our kitchen took two kits, but well worth it and still way cheaper than the quotes that we got from professionals. It totally changes the feel of the kitchen, and it looks SO MUCH BRIGHTER! I would say give yourself a few days to knock this out, as it took us several nights to finish. But would highly recommend.” —T.J. Sarnese

Get it from Amazon for $79.95 (available in more colors here).

9. And gold tone pulls that’ll add a fancy touch to your kitchen cabinets or bedroom dresser. Switch out your plain ones with these luxe-looking beauties that’ll score you tons of compliments whenever someone visits.

Promising review: “If you have any doubts in your mind about these handle pulls….don’t!!! They are absolutely stunning in person. They are heavy and have a luxe weighted feel and look to them. The brushed brass gleams the perfect amount. I truly get so happy every time I walk into my kitchen. These handle pulls make it magnificent. They’re like jewelry for your kitchen. I couldn’t be happier with them.” —Ravi S

Get a set of 10 five-inch pulls from Amazon for $51.65.

10. Pretty outdoor string lights to turn your balcony, deck, or porch into a twinkling paradise. They’ll look gorgeous in the evening, especially when the sun is setting and you’re relaxing outdoors after a long day.

Promising review: “I purchased these for my patio two summers ago, and I love them. I put them up in the spring and take them down when it gets too chilly to sit outside. I can’t say how they hold up in the cold temperatures of winter. But what I can say is that I love these; they are small enough that they don’t hang down too far, and they give off a nice relaxing glow that’s not too bright.” —Domzzs

Get them from Amazon for $16.95+ (available in three lengths and five colors).

11. Removable peel-and-stick wallpaper because it’ll make redecorating a room a whole lot easier on a budget. Instead of buying a bunch of primer and paint, grab a roll of this to add a pop of color to a bare wall. Your entire space will look like an interior design magazine cover. 😍

This peel-and-stick wallpaper is also removable, making it a great pick for folks who are renting an apartment or home!

Promising review: “The paper of my dreams! Thick, easy to install, VERY forgiving pattern, and I was able to pull off and reposition several times with no loss of stickiness. Can’t say enough good things! Not even a bad smell like I was expecting after reading other reviews. One roll covered my entire set of stair risers with exactly the right amount and a very tiny strip leftover. Posting a before and after so you can be amazed at the transformation like I was. The results are just what I was hoping for and more.” —BwHow

Get a roll (measures 198″ x 20.5″) from Amazon for $29.13+ (available in three colors).

13. A set of thick velvet slip covers that’ll instantly change your dull sofa into a beautiful seating area. If your couch is covered in stains or looks a little worn, just place a couple of these on top for a jaw-dropping transformation that requires minimal effort.

Reviewer before/after of their couch with the pink velvet slip added. The after pic shows couches that look brand new and completely different.

This set also comes with nonslip straps that’ll prevent your “seats” from shifting out of place. It’s also available in a bunch of colors, in case you want to do a total makeover, as shown in the review picture above.

Promising review:This actually made my couch look new. I am genuinely impressed. The kids ruined my off-white couch, and I was desperate to throw it out. My husband on the other hand said, no, give couch covers a try. (I spent money getting the couches professionally cleaned multiple times!) This was the easiest, least expensive choice and I wish I bought them two years ago. It would have saved me a ton of money.” —Leah Johnson

Get it from Amazon for $47.49+ (available in five sizes and 10 colors).

14. Cage pendant lights because they’ll help brighten up your bathroom vanity or a cozy reading corner in your living room. Instead of plugging in a bunch of lamps, you can install these and take accent lighting to the next level.

Reviewer image of two of the caged pendant lights hung above two bathroom sinks

The cord measures 4.9 feet. It does not include bulbs, but you can get a set of compatible Edison bulbs here.

Promising reviews:This little light is perfect for extra/accent lighting! I’m very impressed with the quality of the metal cage, and it didn’t take more than 10 minutes to install. We needed it to be shorter in order to fit in the space we wanted it, so we just trimmed the wire to our desired length. We’re very pleased with our purchase!” —Amazon Customer

Great value for your money with this light. Install was mostly easy, I needed mine closer to the ceiling so the excess cord was a little difficult to wrap up inside, but besides that, install was a breeze. Everything was properly marked.” —Katy

Get them from Amazon for $25.89 each.

15. Or these vintage-style glass lights will look fabulous with some Edison bulbs. Plus, they’ll add a touch of sophistication to your kitchen or dining room setup for less than $50.

Reviewer image of three pendants above a counter top in a reviewer's kitchen

The cord measures 10 inches, so you can adjust the height and create the decor aesthetic you’d like!

Promising review: “These lights are one of those lucky finds that just work out perfectly. We finished a remodel about two years ago and bought these lights as the pendant lights over the island. I absolutely love the look of them! We bought the old-fashioned-looking Edison LED warm lights for them. I still can’t believe that these lights were so inexpensive. They were such a perfect fit! I just thought I’d leave this note for anyone else considering them after I looked them up to see if they were still available after my teenager set one swinging and I was worried about them breaking. They didn’t break, but they are such a good price, I might just buy an extra one to store in the garage for any just-in-case moments in the future!” —Stephanie

Get it from Amazon for $44.99 (bulb *not* included), and a four-pack of Edison bulbs for $12.74.

16. And a handy recessed light converter that’ll transform ordinary ceiling lights into chic pendants without complicated wiring or an expensive electrician visit. 

Reviewer image of a bathroom that used the kit to turn recess lighting into pendant lighting

This converter’s brace adjusts to fit recessed cans that are 4, 5, or 6 inches, plus works for sloped ceilings up to 45 degrees.

Promising review: “This product works exactly as advertised. It converts a recessed light so that you can install another light fixture, and it does not require that you remove the metal can from your ceiling. This is convenient because these cans can be obnoxious to remove, and the hole left in your ceiling is probably bigger than you want for your new fixture anyway. My large dining room stupidly had ONE recessed light for the entire room. I used this product to install a chandelier.” —The Mamos

Get it from Amazon for $18.31.

17. A pretty seating set, so you can turn your bleak balcony into a little bistro nook that looks like something straight out of Paris. It comes with two folding chairs and a small table that’ll be perfect for times when you want to eat a meal and chat outside.

Promising review: “So I have this tiny balcony for a studio apartment and I wanted something cute to fill up the space. This set is the most affordable and there were so many choices of colors. When I went for a walk around my apartment complex, I noticed some of the neighbors have the exact same set. Since my balcony is so small and I rarely have visitors, I only set up one of the chairs. I plan to get a small succulent next to decorate it.” —Bunny

Get it from Amazon for $119.99 (available in 10 colors).

18. An affordable water-based paint that’ll elevate the appearance of your front door. ‘Tis time to go for a beautiful shade, like the blue one below, if you’re revamping your home. Now the exterior of your house will look like an HGTV photo shoot. ✨

on left: white metal door without any paint in home

on right: same door with a fresh coat of blue paint, gold numbers that say 729, and a floral wreath

Promising review: “I just bought my first house and was looking for a quick, cheap update for the front door that will eventually get replaced down the road so I decided to paint the current one. My original door is a standard white exterior door. I was able to do this in a few hours (that includes drying time). Did two coats, the paint applies easily and dries very well. I purchased the color happy and would say it is a brighter yellow that contrasts well with my light blue house and white trim. Definitely recommend.” —KBay

Get it from Amazon for $42.38+ (available in 16 colors).

19. And a well-lit address sign so no one has to guess which home is yours on the street. It adds a nice touch to any front door space or mailbox, and it’s solar powered, so it’ll be illuminated and clearly visible early in the morning or late at night. 

on top: outside of Mediterranean-style house without numbers. on bottom: same home with black and white solar number sign that says 5841

same sign that says

This sign comes with four sets of numbers 0–9, one set of letters A–E, and two additional numbers (3, 4, and 5 digits). It has a smart brightness sensor that switches the light on when it’s the evening/early morning and off during the day. FYI: It’s recommended to place the address sign in direct sunlight for optimal charging performance. 

Promising review: “My family just moved in to a home which did not have house numbers. We looked for decorative signs at first but settled on this for practicality. It has been up outside for 5 months now and we can’t be more pleased. The numbers were easy to put on and adhered well. It appears sturdy enough and the visibility is good from the road. The solar light was definitely a selling point for us. I love having an illuminated sign to make our address visible for deliveries after sunset. I did not want to have to drill holes into our vinyl siding to hang this but it was very simple to hang after purchasing some vinyl siding hooks.” —C. Miller

Get it from Amazon for $25.49. 

20. Iridescent privacy film that’ll fill your bathroom with mini rainbows when sunlight trickles in. Your window will look like an iridescent piece of art *and* prevent your neighbors from peeping in while you shower or sit on the toilet.

Promising review:Want to update your home for cheap? Want to upgrade your crappy old windows? Want to live in a rainbow land and have a house where every room changes color depending on the time of day? Look no further. Creates great privacy during the day and moderate at night (if you’re right against the window and a light is on at night you can see in, but in the day you’ll see nothing but a blur, especially great for second stories, but we use these on our basement windows too). Our kitchen window directly faces our neighbors kids’ room. We wanted to add a little privacy without trying to deal with curtains or blinds over the sink and this did the job.” —Ry A. 

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in nine sizes).

21. Stone-effect spray paint, so you can make over old countertops without a lot of effort on your part. Skip spending money on a new pricey countertop, and use this glossy solution instead for an amazing bathroom transformation.

Promising review: “I saw a few ideas for bathroom updates on a budget. A few people had used this on their bathroom countertop instead of spending a small fortune on new. I figured I had nothing to loose as the stuff I had now had to go. So I painted it a light grey first then after it was dry-sprayed a light layer of the stone spray. LOVE!! It looks great. Is it top of the line? Maybe not but after applying polyurethane to seal it, I think it looks not to shabby for a super cheap fix to my ugly countertop. Highly recommend.” —Lynds

Get it from Amazon for $21.86+ (available in eight colors and multi-packs).

22. A custom organization system that’ll make the mess in your closet *poof* disappear and create an expensive-looking hub for your wardrobe. It’s easy to install and comes with adjustable rods and expandable shelves. You’ll get 12 feet of hanging space and 20 feet of shelving space for all your clothes, shoes, and accessories.

This closet system includes seven 26-inch shelves, two 48-inch shelves, two 48-inch top rails, 19 brackets, five 47.5-inch uprights, two 25-inch upright extensions, and two hang rods. It works with any reach-in or walk-in closet with at least one wall that’s 4 to 8 feet wide.

Promising review: “I love this closet organizer! The quality is excellent, and it is very affordable. This is the second closet I’ve purchased it for — the first one has been going strong for 5 years in the master bedroom closet. I own a ton of clothes and shoes, so this sucker is really weighed down with stuff. It is so sturdy and I love all of the organizational options because I can move all the shelves and accessories around as my needs change.” —TurnerTech

Get it from Amazon for $142.22.

23. A floral bedding set so perfect for the warmer months, you won’t even miss your flannel sheets. A yellow flower design adds a pop of color to your space, and soft fabric will make you feel like you’re sleeping on a cloud. Add in some cute throw pillows to complete your bedroom setup.

This set comes with a duvet cover and two pillow shams!

Promising review: “I love this duvet cover. The zipper works well, which was my fear. It’s easy to put on and keep in place with the little ties in the corners. The floral pattern is super cute and the colors are true to the photo. It’s plenty soft and cozy. Super worth the affordable price and 100% happy with my choice.” —Elizabeth Watson

Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in three sizes).

24. A wow-worthy grout cleaner that’ll probably make you believe in magic, because it’ll remove years and years of dirt and grime from floor tiles. Yay, you’ve just spared yourself from a pricey remodeling session in the bathroom or kitchen.

A customer review before and after photo of their tiled floor with dirty grouts and then completely white

Apply it to grout lines, let it sit for 5–10 minutes, and agitate the grout with a bristled brush to lift all the nasty gunk that’s been there for way too long.

Promising review: “This stuff is seriously amazing. This is the one and only product review I have ever written, just because I’m so impressed with this stuff. Getting our house ready to sell and decided I needed to finally clean our filthy kitchen grout. This just lifted the grime away, took almost no scrubbing and no elbow grease. Totally worth the twenty bucks a bottle.” —James David Lambert

Get a 32-ounce bottle from Amazon for $19.95.

25. A surface cover to make your boring countertops look *way better* than they did before. Everyone will be asking, “Did you redo part of your kitchen?!” when IRL, you just stuck on this marble-print adhesive and didn’t get expensive renovations.

before picture of black kitchen counters

picture of same countertops with the white marble adhesive surface cover

This marble-print surface cover is so easy to use: measure your kitchen countertop, cut the amount you’ll need, peel off the adhesive liner, and stick it on! Some reviewers also recommend using a credit card to gently smooth out any bubbles that may pop up in the process.

If you want to spruce up other areas around home, this cover also works great for cabinets and other pieces of furniture (bookcases, desks, dressers, and more).

Promising review: “I ordered this contact paper a while ago as a project to upgrade the dingy look of the bathroom counter in my rental. I needed a solution that I can easily remove without damaging the property when it’s time to move out. THIS IS THE GREATEST STUFF EVER. I have just purchased two more rolls to give an old desk a little sprucing up. I would highly recommend this product. Friends have now purchased this and feel the same love that I do for this product! :)” —ErinReneeee

Get it from Amazon for $6.99+ (available in four sizes).

26. A gorgeous outdoor rug, because you are done staring at a bare hardwood floor every time you eat or drink al fresco. This beauty will upgrade your outdoor seating area and work with any table and chairs set.

Promising review: “I can’t believe how well these work! Much better than I was expecting. I just had my home interior painted and the painters damaged a fiberboard medicine cabinet when they removed the masking tape. It ripped off the fake-wood veneer. These markers completely filled in the ugly spots and the colors blended well. I love that it appears to have some clear coat in it too as it dries with a slight shine that makes it look more like wood stain rather than marker. I also used them to stain wood filler in two spots in my maple kitchen cabinets where a previous homeowner had hung a paper towel holder and I really struggle to see the hole! It looks fantastic. I highly recommend this set. It’s a good value and works very well.” —Shane

Get a set of 13 from Amazon for $9.39.

28. And furniture decals to help cover up chips, scrapes, and scratches on your chest, dresser, or nightstand. All you have to do is rub them onto your piece of furniture with a wooden stick (no polishing or painting required on your part), and they’ll give it a beautiful appearance again.

Lots of reviewers painted it!

Promising review: “These medallions were much prettier than I expected, and were super smooth for reception of paint. It took me a few days to decide the color placement and style, as they will be in rooms that are visible to one another. Pre-colored medallions are expensive, doing it myself saved me money I used to upgrade my chandeliers.” —Cris

Get it from Amazon for $64+ (available in 63 colors).

32. Faux fur shams, so your old throw pillows can be repurposed *and* you can add a cozy touch to your favorite seat in the house. They’re soft, available in multiple sizes and colors, and cost less than new couch cushions.
