A cute and colorful kitchen cart that doubles up on storage and counter space — ideal as an extra chopping station the next time you and your roomie are fighting over who gets to prep dinner where.


Promising review: “We love our kitchen island/cart. It is the perfect size for our small kitchen. We have been using it as an extra counter space and for a little storage. It is perfect. Shipping was fast and the assembling wasn’t bad. My fiance just read the instructions and put it together. I would highly recommend.” —Glenna

Get it from Wayfair for $179.99 (originally $391.04 and available in three colors).


An aesthetically timeless storage bed which lifts up instead of having drawers that pull out — the perfect solution if your bed happens to be wedged in a tight, awkward spot. Plus, it compensates for the lack of closet space you might be experiencing if you have a city-based apartment (#me).


Promising review: “Absolutely great!! Huge storage compartment. Beautiful bed, easy to keep the room clutter free — especially when you have a teenage boy. Easy to open and close, and even easier to make the bed when it’s open/up. Great material, fairly simple to put together (MUST FOLLOW INSTRUCTIONS). Definitely worth EVERY PENNY!!” —Nandab22

Get it from Ikea for $499.00 (available in sizes full/double and queen; and two finishes).


An ingenious wall-mounted floating desk for a functional WFH spot even in the smallest of apartments. Plus, come quitting time, you can easily fold it away Murphy-bed style!


Promising review: “I work at home once a week and needed a workspace but didn’t want to commit an area of my house to a full office. Plus, most desks look cluttered and ugly. This little desk is perfect for my space! I have it in my living room and it opens so I can look out into my backyard through the French doors. But I can close it and tuck it away when I need more space. When open, it is the best little workspace! It is sturdy and has plenty of room for my legs underneath and my laptop on top but it also has folders and shelves to hold my key files and supplies. It blends right into the picture collage on my wall. I would highly recommend this desk.” —Ariella

Get it from Wayfair for $189.99 (available in two colors).

A tall ladder bookshelf to vertically organize your belongings and display your collection of plant babies in a seamless, nonintrusive fashion.


Promising review: “I live in a small, 700-square-foot apartment so I needed something that would not be bulky in the living room. I love, love, love this. Looks way more expensive than it is in person AND it was very very easy to put together alone. I would definitely consider buying this in other colors for other rooms.” —Amazon Customer

A pair of modern and stackable nesting tables that you can use together or separately as their own little end placements for your phone and 5 o’clock wine.

Get them from Amazon for $42.99.


An adjustable round drop-leaf dining table to upgrade your boring ol’ rectangular one. This shape definitely feels more practical for a smaller space AND you can extend it once you’re ready to have guests over. Otherwise, it tucks nicely against the wall for a quick meal for two.

Promising review: “We moved into a home with no real dining space so this is the perfect little table for our small dining area. The off-white color is beautiful, it’s very sturdy and easy to put together, and the price can’t be beaten. It’s a great size for a small family with the leaves down and would work for a small group to have dinner if you extend it. I would highly recommend!!” —Nick Randall

Get it from Amazon for $130.87 (available in 24 colors).


A standing mirror that moonlights as an armoire, aka the crème de la crème of space-saving furniture. So now you can finally free up your surfaces from overflowing jewelry boxes and disguise any unsightly clutter instantly.


Promising review: “This is great for getting organized! My necklaces no longer are piled together or hanging on several different jewelry holders. This has saved me so much space from the holders and multiple jewelry boxes. It really just looks like a mirror stand instead of a jewelry box. I also love that it locks.” —K. Patrick

Get it from Amazon for $119.99 (available in two finishes).


An antique-inspired entertainment center with *plenty* of spacious compartments for your router, game console, whatever!

A bronze garment rack for an elegant, fuss-free way to display your bulky winter clothes that can’t quite squeeze into your closet. You’ve always wanted your bedroom to resemble the look of a stylish Parisian boutique, anyway!


Promising review: “I cannot say enough good things about this product! I was looking for a bigger clothing rack as I have a lot of clothes and no closet space. This one is longer and bigger than all of the other ones I looked at. It was super easy to put together. I had never assembled anything by myself before but all I needed was a screwdriver to put this together by myself. I have had this rack now for about six months and it is holding up so well! I have a ton of clothes on it — including lots of heavy sweaters — and it is super sturdy!” —LRV27

Get it from Amazon for $31.87+ (available in two colors).

A studio apartment-friendly pub set with a faux marble top that comfortably seats two — because it might finally be time to swap out those dorm room TV trays for a more ~elevated~ dining experience.


Promising review: “I needed a small bar set in a very small area. I use this for extra eating space and for my son to use when he is doing his homework. It makes a very good makeshift work station. He likes it and so do I. This was fairly easy to put together. The top is a faux marble and looks very nice. The stools are surprisingly comfortable and sit completely under the bar, creating even more space.” —Melissa

Get it from Amazon for $259.99.

Multi-purpose wooden floating shelves if you don’t have the square footage to house a library’s worth of bookshelves, or enough cabinet space to hold all your toiletries in. TL;DR: You can place these in any room that’s not really performing in the storage department.


Promising review: “I didn’t use these as shelves. I used them as cat stairs for my son’s cat to go up to his loft bed. They have been working perfectly for that. We have a big heavy cat and they are holding up to everyday use.” —KJG

A rustic coffee table with two wicker baskets to organize your household items and have everything from blankets to books on hand, but stored away neatly (as far as your eyes can see, of course).

Get it from Novogratz on Wayfair for $62.99 (available in four finishes).


A convenient side table to accessorize the arm of your go-to lounge spot. This discreetly slides under furniture to save space and is the perfect ledge to place your laptop on the next time you’re working overtime and don’t want to sit stooped over your couch.


Promising review: “I purchased this type of table specifically to use with my laptop and to double as a sort of fancy TV tray. The size listed was perfect for a small space, like my bedroom without having the bulkiness of a desk. Table came after about two weeks and packed flat. It was easy to assemble and took about 10 minutes to put together since it has fairly large, basic pieces. Once assembled, the table is really light and can easily be carried room to room. I actually found the wooden top to be a lot nicer in person, it has a nice depth of color that makes it modern and doesn’t make it look cheap. Minimalist design so you can put this in plenty of spaces for a wide range of uses. I like it too as a small side table for a sofa or could easily double as a night stand for narrow spaces. I think it’s a great value for how much you can use it.” —K.

Get it from Amazon for $40.99.


A modern storage stool that opens up and makes for an attractive side table, nightstand, footrest, throne…I could go on…

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I was shopping around for a couple of months trying to find auxiliary seating and storage for my stylish, but tiny space. There are many similar options on the market for sculptural, multi-purpose pieces. At this price, I figured I’d take a chance, and I’m glad I did. These are lightweight AND sturdy. This definitely looks more expensive than it is. The hidden storage may be lovely, but I’m not really ‘storing’ anything in there, except some linens and a bag of marbles to add weight. They make great side tables, foot rests, and impromptu stools.” —M Roy Clark

Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in four colors).


A glass and faux-marble console table to inject some elegánce into a small area. After all, sleek glass + light colors = less visual clutter.


Promising review: “I’ve been looking for a vanity desk for eight months! The ones that I could find was cheesy and not as classy as this one. The width of the top is large enough that it double as a desk even though it’s sold as a console table. The ‘faux marble’ is beautiful and the real glass sides makes this table look so chic! I’m so happy I never give reviews but decided to do so to let you know this is a good purchase!” —Marianna Bracco

Get it from Amazon for $101.85 (available in six finishes).


A compact dining set for the coziest breakfast nook of your dreams. This has a drop-leaf table and stools that perfectly tuck away within the cart. I mean, could kitchenware get any cuter?!

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I wasn’t even planning on getting a kitchen table because I didn’t want to lose anymore square footage. The way my apartment is set up, a table will be in the way no matter where it sits. But when I ran across this little gem, I changed my mind. When they say space-saving, they really mean it. I especially love that the stools tuck under the table! The stools are NOT bar stools, so they are short, but that’s to line up with the table. I also use them as TV trays sometimes, so I REALLY love this table! So many uses. If you’re looking for an arts and crafts table or need to save space like me, do yourself a favor and pick this thing up!” —JD

Get it from Amazon for $197+ (available in three finishes).


An acrylic chair that won’t overwhelm a crowded area and instantly gives the illusion of more space. Plus, it wouldn’t look half bad with a faux-fur rug draped over it. AKA, it’s a ~clear~ winner for your home.


Promising review: ” I have quite a small living room and it adds that little bit of extra seating without cluttering up the small space; a perfect touch. Everybody wants to sit on it when they first come into the room. I am so happy with this chair!” —Ruby

Get it from Amazon for $91.12.


A coat rack and storage shelf to bring style, convenience, and order to a usually chaotic entryway — otherwise known as an extension of your already overrun closet.


Promising review: “It’s a great fit in my small house! It’s lightweight and I was able to put it together by myself with the tool that was supplied. Fits lots of shoes and coats. I don’t have it mounted to the wall since we aren’t allowed to put holes in them, and it still holds up well!” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $70.99.


A vanity table that doubles up as a storage solution to easily fit your entire makeup collection in. Even better, you can use it as a desk when you need to get away from your overcrowded living room that’s basically become a WeWork during quarantine.


Promising review: “This is a dream come true. It’s the most functional desk ever. I don’t have any storage space in my bathroom so this gave me a place to put all of my bottles. I love the pop-up mirror and it works as an awesome desk, too.” —Brooklyn Babe

Get it from Amazon for $168.94 (available in two finishes).


A ridiculously gorgeous futon to put all other futons to shame. Honestly, this’ll look amazing in any living room and it conveniently folds down into an extra bed (if you can’t make the two steps to your bedroom after your five-hour movie marathon).

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “For $200, this is a 5-star product. It was really easy to put together. It’s a little firmer than what I usually like, but it’s not uncomfortable. I even took a nap on it the other day. It was even a little bigger than I thought it would be. My family of three has plenty of room when we all sit on it.” —Lindy M.

Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $295.99 (available in eight colors).


A mid-century modern inspired nightstand which sits above the ground — creating the appearance of more space — and neatly stashes away any and all of your nighttime essentials.


Promising review: “Everyone else has said it, but I’ll say it again. If you are looking for a QUALITY nightstand that not only looks super stylish but is easy as pie to assemble… this is the nightstand for you. One of the best purchases I’ve ever made on Amazon, not one negative thing to say. BUY THEM!” —Lauren

Get it from Amazon for $59.50.


Wall-mount shelves that fit flush within the corner of a room and have a unique design that makes them the perfect wall decoration all on their own — it’s just an added bonus that they’re sturdy enough to store a bunch of knickknacks on as well!


Promising review: “The shelves complement my living room perfectly. After ordering one initially, I ended up buying a second because it looks so good and was able to add decoration into corners of the living room that otherwise were too small to hang anything. I get so many compliments and I’m able to store all of my little trinkets and meaningful small things that are usually bound to get put away somewhere.” —Sara
