While schlepping to Ikea for cheap bowls, trash cans, water pitchers, and dish towels can be a convenient way to get all your apartment decorating done at once, it isn’t the only option. With a little digging, you can find lots of more handsome and well-priced home décor online — you just have to know where to look. Seeing as our job is knowing where to look to find the best stuff, we decided to help any would-be apartment decorators by doing some digging to find affordable décor that’ll gussy up any space from the kitchen to the entryway. From faux-sheepskin rugs to Turkish towels to chic coasters, any of the 35 items below — all of which are (roughly) $20 or less — will go a long way toward sprucing up your home. Most of the things on this list are all available at Amazon, but we’ve found a few of them elsewhere for those who like to shop around. And if you’re looking for even more cheap (but expensive-looking) home décor, check out our individual roundups of things for bathroom, bedroom, dining room, kitchen, and nursery.

A (faux) fur rug to zuzh up a forgotten corner. Once it’s on the floor, we suspect it’ll quickly become everyone’s favorite spot in the house.
For a more modern look, this circular acrylic vase gives off serious ’80s vibes.
Here’s a retro, schoolhouse-inspired clock for your wall that’s, well, timeless.
