Turns out you don’t need to schlep to Ikea to find cheap bowls, trash cans, water pitchers, or dish towels. Amazon is actually full of handsome and well-priced home décor — you just have to do a little digging. Which is what we did so you don’t have to. Below, the fuzzy pillows and metal napkin holders that are under $30 (and in most cases under $20). If you’re looking for some cheap decorating ideas for the bathroom, too, we went and found a bunch of those on Amazon.
A home for your ladles and spoons, so you don’t get tomato sauce all over the kitchen. You can also fit your favorite cookbook.
Keep this little guy in your sink to rid your hands of onion, garlic, and other cooking-related smells.

When you don’t want to stash your stuff in plastic tubs.

Okay, this is $30, but it’s such a great little side table that we had to stick it on here. Place a lamp on it, your Amy’s tortellini bowl, or a Roku remote.
A nice-looking way to deal with the night sweats.
These dish towels from Nawrap (a Japanese company founded in the 1930s that originally made mosquito nets) are infused with an anti-odor and anti-microbial charcoal called binchotan.
A perfect wooden bathroom trash can that would make a good upgrade to a mesh wastebasket.
Great for holding things that don’t have an obvious home, like a remote control, a pair of scissors, even an air plant. Could work inside a closet or on a foyer wall.
A shower curtain that creates an instant little woodsy scene in the bathroom.
