The best cheap (but expensive-looking) apartment home decor on Amazon

Our team is dedicated to finding and telling you more about the products and deals we love. If you love them too and decide to purchase through the links below, we may receive a commission. Pricing and availability are subject to change. 

When it comes to furnishing a new apartment or sprucing up a more lived in one, it’s all fun and games until everything on your wish list starts adding up.

Making upgrades to your space, while still staying on a budget is possible, especially if you’re already an Amazon Prime member (if you’re not already, be sure to sign up here before reading any further).

Searching for anything other than groceries or other household essentials can often be stressful on Amazon. Still, the site has some helpful lesser-known features that can help you furnish your dream apartment.

Not only does Amazon now have a new home goods storefront called Home Essentials, where you can shop furniture, lighting, home decor and more – all in one place, there’s also a new section of the site where you can shop by what’s trending in the design world.

On the Now Trending page, you can navigate to four different aesthetics that allow you to shop the look and replicate the style in your own home. Cozy Cabin, Natural Palette, Live-In Minimalism and Geometric Forms are the top trends on Amazon, which you’re going to be seeing everywhere in 2021.

While you can easily shop Amazon’s curated picks to get started, there are some home decor best sellers you’re not going to want to miss.

If you like pretty but functional pieces, you’re going to want to take a look at this chic gold mirror ASAP, and if you’ve needed something that can act as a makeshift bar cart, this utility cart is your best bet when it comes to saving space and money. And because throw pillows can instantly make a boring bed or couch look magazine-worthy, you’re going to want to take a peek at these adorable pillow covers, too.

Below you’ll find even more affordable home finds to help get your decorative juices flowing (or at least your Pinterest board started).
