As much fun as it is to scroll through aspirational photos of homes and pricy decor, a realistic style upgrade often occurs slowly (and with a set budget).

Moving onto the living room: if you’re in a small space and need an affordable and comfy place to crash, this sleeper sofa ($100) ought to do the trick.

Your bedroom should be a sanctuary, and that starts with a nightstand ($80) that can hold all your books, eye masks and nighttime snacks. And if you have a collection of perfumes or little curios that need organizing, this delicate vanity tray ($42) will display them functionally.
Even though $100 and under is great category to shop from, you can’t beat the rush of finding a seriously affordable deal. Pictured above, this 1970’s bookcase ($25) lets you customize how and where you display your collection; it would look just as good on a nightstand as it would a coffee table. Speaking of nightstands, who can pass up some clean mid-century modern lines? This sturdy wooden side table ($25) has a small enough frame to work beside your bed or in your living room.
