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 marble jewelry boxes and rattan trays that are under $30 (and, in most cases, under $20). If you’re looking for some cheap decorating ideas for the bathroom, bedroom, or kitchen as well, we went and found a bunch of those on Amazon, too.

Give your snake plant or parlor palm the attractive home it deserves.

Make that stack of books on your mantel look more organized with these simple wooden bookends.

This amber vase will look nice whether you put artificial flowers in it or the real thing.

If you’re going for a mid-century look, this retro battery-operated clock is a must.

Use this iridescent jar to store your cotton balls or favorite candy.

This serving tray is big enough to hold all your favorite nail polishes or act as a family catchall in the kitchen.

If you prefer something with more texture, go for this rattan tray, which would be perfect for a small breakfast in bed.


These geometric wall planters (for your beloved succulents) would look nice in an entryway.

As would this organizer for your mail, keys, and an umbrella. The wooden ball hooks are a delightful touch.

Or give your keys a punchy zebra dish to live in instead.
