A circular, gold-framed vanity mirror, so you can see your gorgeous self reflected back at you from something just as stunning as you are. The sleek frame is made of anti-rust aluminum alloy, and the glass is shatter-proof, making it ideal for the damp, high-traffic area that is your bathroom.


Promising review: “Love this mirror. Remodeled my beach house powder room. The mirror brought everything together like magic. It looks amazing.” –Barbara

Price: $76.99+ (originally $159+, available in two colors and six sizes)


Or, a classic, wood-framed medicine cabinet that’ll function as a mirror and boost your bathroom storage. This type of design never goes out of style – and the shelf inside is adjustable, too.


Promising review:Just what I needed for my bathroom makeover at a reasonable price. Easy to put together and came with a template for hanging which was very helpful.” –Jill

Price: $85.99 (originally $89.99)


Some decorative floor registers, because who says you can’t have a little fun with your climate control? These stainless steel vent covers are adorned with a beautiful curlicue pattern and come in packs of five.


Pro-tip: Since pretty vent covers tend to be a little pricier than the standard slatted ones, you can keep costs down by only using the decorative ones where they’ll actually be seen. I’ve got one on the very visible vent by my front door, for example – but the one under my desk? No one sees it – not even me, really – so it’s just a plain ol’ slatted one.

Promising review: “Very pretty and a nice compliment to my light wood floors.” –Kathleen

Price: $52.57 (originally $54.99, available in two sizes and six colors)


A multifunction rainfall showerhead, because…well, do you really need a reason to want a rainfall showerhead beyond the fact that it’s a rainfall showerhead? (You do not, because these things are terrifically relaxing and worth their own proverbial weight in gold.) With both a full showerhead and a handheld attachment, and three spray patterns to choose from, this pick will make sure every single morning in your newly remodeled bathroom is a good one.


Promising review: “Easy install! Amazing pressure! 10/10 would recommend and buy again. My shower head broke and I decided to get a waterfall-type shower head. What a game-changer! It feels amazing, is relaxing, and invigorating. Do yourself a favor and just buy it already!” –Thao

Price:  $64.70 (originally $67.99)


Some colorful ceramic drawer pulls to help you hack your plain ol’ dresser into the unique storage solution you always knew it could be. “Remodeling” can be as simple as sprucing up some of your existing pieces with new details – and things like these cute little knobs can go a long way towards making it happen.

Promising review:These knobs are beautiful and worked great on my refurbished dresser and nightstand. Lovely color and design!” –Anonymous

Price: $3.95 per pull(originally $6)


Some new sliding doors for your closet, because those builder-grade foldable ones that every closet on the face of the planet seemingly has are just Not It. Sliding closet doors, it turns out, are surprisingly expensive (like, topping-a-thousand-bucks expensive, much of the time) – but this five-light frosted glass number both looks terrific and comes in at about half the cost of the vast majority of options.


Promising review:Used this for my bedroom closet door and definitely elevated the look. It’s so beautiful and modern – everyone asks me where I got them.” –Jenny

Price: $420.86+ (available in two colors and three sizes)


A set of interlocking wood deck tiles that’ll update any outdoor space with ease, from concrete patios to neglected balcony areas. Made of acacia, these tiles are anti-microbial as well as fade-, warp-, scratch-, stain-, mildew- slip-, water-, and frost-resistant – and they install with a simple click.


Promising review:Not only do they look beautiful, it was so easy to install! I’m in love.” –Barbara

Price: $5.55 per sq. ft. (originally $8.13)


A bathroom faucet meant for vessel sinks that looks like a li’l old-fashioned water pump, because who hasn’t seen one of these in a fancy bar or hotel restroom and thought, “OMG IT’S SO CUTE”? Fun fact: Changing out your faucet is a great way to give your sink area a new look — and it’s a lot easier to do than you probably think it is.


Promising review: “We had the most difficult time finding a thin faucet that would fit next to the bowl sink we had. This fit the bill! Modern design and looks like jewelry for the bathroom.” –Carole

Price: $72.77+ (originally $78.99+. available in seven colors)


A vessel-style bathroom sink that’ll tick both the trendy and classic boxes in one go. This matte white stone number is nonporous and anti-bacterial, as well as scratch-proof, fade-proof, and impact-resistant, so you know it’ll last.


Promising review: “Love it! Great sleek design, stone look, not shiny porcelain. Has a high-end designer look. Highly recommend. I purchased two, they will look fabulous in my master bath update.” –Amy

Price: $152.90 (originally $265)


Some ceramic subway tiles to give you the kitchen backsplash of your Instagrammable dreams. Subway tile doesn’t have to be white and glossy, by the way — and happily, this option comes in multiple levels of gloss.


Promising review: “We still have to add the coffee bean colored grout, but these tiles were just what we wanted! Matte tone, but so easy to wipe off! And super easy to work with. Also came packed extremely well. … Definitely a great buy!” –Katie

Price: $4.99 per sq. ft. (originally $8.08, available in two colors and two gloss levels)


Or, a peel-and-stick subway tile backsplash, if you’re not ready or able to do a full re-tiling job. These glass tiles stick on with their own adhesive; then, whenever you’re ready for something new, you can just pull ‘em off and return the wall to its original state. Easy peasy!


Promising review: “These tiles were the absolute BEST! We put them over an existing ceramic backsplash and it adhered perfectly and is very strong! The colors are beautiful and it was easy to install. If you’re on the fence as to buy this stick-on glass tile, go ahead and do it, you’ll be happy you did!” –LaDonna

Price: $8.21+ per sq. ft. (originally $15.49+, available in 12 colors)


A classy handle set for your front door, because hey, guess what? You can upgrade your main entry’s look without, y’know, replacing the entire door! (Exterior doors are $$$ , y’all.) This set includes a handle with a knob and a deadbolt, along with two keys. Also, it is gorgeous.

Promising review:Our front door needed an update and this was the perfect way to do it! High quality and great price!” –Leanne

Price: $150.57 (originally $286, available in six colors)


A wall-mounted cabinet perfect for giving weird, under-utilized spaces an actual purpose. I’ve got one of these hanging on an awkwardly-sized wall in my bathroom, and it is exactly what I needed. I use the three shelves to hold first aid supplies, soap, and other shower-related items, but it’s good for just about anything, anywhere.


Promising review: “Excellent cabinet, love it. Perfect size for a small area. Installed over bathroom toilet, has plenty of room for everyday stuff needed. Would buy it again, as made well and very nice for the area where you’re limited for space.” –Anonymous

Price: $67.99


A sliding barn door that comes complete with an installation hardware kit, because not everyone can afford to have pocket doors built directly into their walls. Plus, nothing adds a rustic focal point to a room quite like a barn door does, right?


Promising review:This door was everything it claimed to be and we are thrilled that it worked in a strange bathroom door area in our house. Super easy to install.” –Tina

Price: $356.36+ (available in two sizes)


A 25-pack of sleek, modern drawer pulls for the easiest, most impactful kitchen cabinet upgrade ever. If your kitchen is looking a little bit dated, swapping out the hardware can make a huge difference when it comes to freshening up its look.

Promising review: “Love my bar pulls. Changing from the previous bar pulls to these transformed my kitchen cabinets completely. They updated the look to one I was trying to achieve. Not only do they look beautiful, they are sturdy and very well made.” –Susan

Price: $55.10+ (originally $17.13+, available in five colors)


Or, some show-stopping geometric knobs for your kitchen cabinets, because sometimes, it’s worth it to be a little extra. This (literally) multi-faceted hardware option brings a little glitz and glamor to your meal prepping — and installing them is a snap.


Promising review:I love the detail in this cabinet knob! It was just the update I was looking for in my kitchen. I have white farm house cabinets.” –Stephanie

Price: $4.79+ (available in four colors)


A shiny new faucet for your kitchen sink, because if you haven’t embraced the pull-down faucet life, now is the time. This one is tall enough to accommodate stock pots and water pitchers and includes three different spray options.


Promising review:This faucet is great! Install took less than 30 minutes. It looks exactly as pictured. It is high quality. The stream sprayer works excellent for rinsing dishes.” –Anonymous

Price: $55.99+ (originally $143+, available in three colors)


Or, a touchless kitchen faucet that will start running with a wave of your hand. You’ll never have to awkwardly try to turn the faucet on with your elbows when you’re up to your eyeballs in kitchen prep ever again.


Promising review: “Very pleased with my purchase. So convenient when in the kitchen and I need to wash my hands. I just put my hands under the faucet and the sensor activates so I am able to wash my hands without touching anything. Great investment to make my life easier.” –Colleen

Price: $116.99+ (originally $279.99+, available in three colors)


Some sleek new doorknobs, because you’d be amazed at how much of a difference just changing out the hardware can make on the look of your interior doors. They’re easy to install, too – if you can use a screwdriver, you can update your doorknobs. Promise.


Promising review: “This is beautiful in matte black and was perfect for our closets! It made our doors look much more modern and updated.” –Olivia

Price: $7.98+ (originally $17+, available in three lock styles and nine colors)


A pair of decorative privacy screens for your outdoor spaces, because hiding either your HVAC or yourself from the prying eyes of your neighbors can be easy and pretty. This set of two panels can be arranged to conceal just about anything — with style, of course.


Promising review:I have been wanting to cover up an old ugly utility box that is in our backyard and this worked perfectly. It was a little difficult to put together but I figured it out and am happy with the finished product.” –Tanya

Price: $93.96 (originally $98.99)


A set of bi-fold doors with so many uses, you’ll want to put them in every room. Reviewers have used them for everything from closets to laundry rooms; a handful of clever folks even added some handle hardware to make them look like French doors; and some have straight-up converted them into actual French doors. Talk about hackable — and much more budget-friendly!


Promising review: “Exceeded expectations! Great quality and easy install with two people. Applied a walnut stain and used mineral spirits to wipe off excess. Looks great – like it was always here!” –1903 House

Price: $259.99+ (originally $285.99+, available in four sizes)


A surprisingly affordable ceramic farmhouse sink, so you can finally have the rustic, country-style kitchen you’ve always wanted. This one even has reversible installation options for maximum flexibility, depending on your setup.


Promising review:Sink was a great deal, especially for seemingly great quality and looks. Worked perfectly for our particular needs in our kitchen renovation. We needed to buy a drain with long threading as the sink is fairly thick. Other than that, easy install.” –Clare

Price: $189.99 (originally $261.99)


Or, a hand-hammered copper sink for your kitchen or bar that’s just a little bit different than the standard ceramic or stainless steel. If your ideal kitchen aesthetic is “sun-dappled villa somewhere in the Tuscan hills,” this option will add the finishing touch.


Promising review:I love, love, love this sink! Similar sinks were close to $1,000. I’m remodeling my kitchen and the new fixtures on my appliances are a light bronze color, and I realized stainless wasn’t going to look right. There were very few sinks with a brass/bronze color available anywhere. White seemed boring since most of my kitchen is white, so this is just perfect!” –Jennifer

Price: $198.34 (originally $229.15)


A wall-mounted pot filler, because if you’ve never had one before, now is a great time to install one. This brass and stainless steel number swivels and retracts for easy use and easier storage; just push it against the wall when you’re not using it to get it out of the way, fast.


Promising review: “So in love with the elegance this pot filler adds to my kitchen. Such good quality for a great price.” –jaime

Price:  $81.99 (originally $91.99)


A bathroom vanity with mid-century modern appeal, because nothing changes up a bathroom’s look like a new vanity. Reviewers say it’s a great replacement for pedestal sinks that have no storage — and, uh, as someone who lives in a place that has at least one pedestal sink with no storage, that sounds terrific right about now. (Note that it doesn’t come with a faucet — but hey, that just means you’ve got the opportunity to pick out the perfect fixture for yourself, right?)


Promising review: “LOVE this vanity! Put it in our newly remodeled powder room. It’s very well built, easy to build. Love the mid-century modern look. Great under cabinet space and soft close door. We put a matte black waterfall faucet on it and it looks perfect! Great price too!” –Julie

Price: $409.99 (originally $724)


Or, a double vanity if you’ve got space for two, so no one has to wait for anyone else to finish brushing their teeth before they can do theirs. Made of poplar wood and with a stone surface, this pick features clean lines and striking drawer pulls that give it a classic yet modern look that’ll hold up for years to come. And since it has two sizeable cabinets and loads of drawers, you’ll never want for a place to stick your cleaning supplies or extra towels!


Promising review: “I wanted something different and unique in my guest bathroom. And, with this vanity set… I got it! Playing off the navy blue has been a great improvement for the space. Also, having double sinks is a great update. The quality of the vanity is perfect. I am very pleased with my purchase.” –Anonymous

Price:  $1,099.99 (originally $1,993, available in three colors)   


Some elegant ceramic floor tiles suited for use in the kitchen, the bathroom, your entryway, or wherever else you’d like to inject a dose of grace. With a bit of lived-in charm, these tiles are perfect for that vintage, shabby-chic aesthetic.


Promising review: “So happy with this tile. It is a beautiful navy color with a worn look so it’s not too bright or ‘new’-looking. Great price too!” –Jane

Price: $6.59 per sq. ft.


Or, some similar peel-and-stick floor tiles so you can give your space a new look without committing to an entire tiling project. If you’re familiar with peel-and-stick backsplashes, these vinyl tiles work in much the same way; they’re self-adhesive, so all you need to do is stick ‘em down and you’re good to go. Then, when you’re done with them, they’ll pull back up, no problem.


Promising review: “Absolutely love this tile for what we used it for: Refreshing a laundry room. With a few cans of paint and new track lighting, it has made a dull dreary space light and airy. So easy to install as well. It cuts with a utility knife.” –patricia

Price: $1.29 per sq. ft. (originally $1.80, available in two colors)


A wall-mounted towel/robe hook or two, because it’s time for your towels to have somewhere to live that’s not just hanging off the corner of the bathroom door. This modern hook has a sleek, clean profile that’ll dress up any wall while keeping your space tidy, to boot.


Promising review:Beautiful towel holder. Nice weight to it and no imperfections. The brass makes me want to use it in other areas of the house. Gives it an elegant touch in my powder room.” –Aces5

Price: $9.98+ (available in four colors)


Or, a compact heated towel rack, because…you deserve it. That’s why. This one mounts to the wall and plugs into your nearest outlet; just turn it on and let it work its magic while you’re in the shower, and you’ll be able to enjoy toasty warm towel when you get out.


Promising review: “Our bathroom is relatively small and all of the other towel warmers seemed to be too large. I also like the simplicity of operation and it makes coming out of shower in the morning much more pleasant.” –Gregg

Price: $135 (available in two colors)


And a fantastical door knocker, so you can greet your guests with a bit of whimsy. This little bumblebee just can’t wait to welcome you home.


Promising review:This literally brings joy to my life everyone I see it! I went with the bigger one and it was super easy to put on my door. Always get compliments! Best purchase so far!” –Debralee

Price: $62.24+ (available in two sizes and four colors)
