I have a little secret for you: a few small shopping tweaks can make everything you already own look a lot more expensive. That's why I've put together a list of inexpensive Amazon home products that make your stuff look luxe. These little shortcuts will majorly upgrade the way your living space looks and feels. Even better? It can all be done online, which means it won't cost you an arm and a leg, and whatever you buy can be at your door tomorrow. (And let's be honest — having something delivered directly to you always feels like the ultimate in luxury.)

First things first: Lighting can make or break the way your home looks. Now, I've been writing about smart light bulbs for a while, but being able to toggle between warm white, cool white, and every other color in the rainbow, has let me find a lighting profile for every occasion and mood, while making every stick of furniture in your home look like a million bucks.
