If there’s one thing that’s always fun to brag about, it’s the opportunity to share when something was bought on the cheap. Think about it: Have you ever let the details of a discounted outfit, a travel deal, or even a free dessert go without the praise of others? Knowing that it’s possible to stretch a dollar in the name of style or comfort can put a smile on anyone’s face, and IKEA’s budget-friendly finds are a great reason to give anyone an ear-to-ear grin.

While it’s no secret that IKEA is a maze of stylish home goods that don’t break the bank, it might still come as a shock to learn just how cost-effective it can be to shop its accessories section. We found 12 cheap IKEA decor items under $10 that’ll complete every space in your home, whether you’re looking for yet another plant holder, a geometric table runner, or outdoor lighting.

No matter which decor items you choose to buy, we promise not to share the secret on how much you spent to make your home look so good. We’ll leave that satisfying brag to you.

If you’re not a morning person…

The easiest way to keep yourself from staring at your phone first thing in the morning is to have an analog clock nearby. This one’s hands move silently so you’ll never be disturbed by any ticking sounds.

If you live by candlelight…

You can never go wrong with accessorizing with candlelight, and this simple geometric shape can add height and dimension to a stack of coffee table books.

If you’re a self-professed plant mom…

A plant of any kind will look stylish when placed inside this concrete plant pot, which can either sit outside or grow indoors. No matter what, it’ll add some texture to a room.

If you prefer cut florals…

While we’re on the subject of honing your green thumb, use these dainty vases to display a bouquet in your living space. A few stems in each one will save money on flowers too.

If you have a KonMari side…

Finished with an acrylic coating that has the appearance of brass, this hook has been tested to withstand the various temperatures of a typical bathroom. It’ll stylishly and practically keep towels off the floor for some time.

If you’re all about reducing your footprint…

Hang this solar-powered pendant light over an outdoor dining set to encourage more alfresco meals or buy a bunch to hang in an outstretched tree. Since no wires are needed, you can get creative.

If you always eat your nine servings of fruit…

Style a dining table or the corner of a kitchen island with a fruit-filled glass bowl and you’ll have a classically appealing aesthetic.

If you love a good dinner party…

Add this geometric table runner to your dining table for a simple way to elevate the scene for a dinner party. All you’ll need are candles and flowers to complete the mood.

If you drink your two liters every day…

No gathering is complete without a practical water carafe, which is sure to save you from making multiple trips to the kitchen. When this vessel isn’t being used to keep guests hydrated, it can also stand in as a sleek vase.

If meal prep is your middle name…

The same dual-purpose function can be found in this beechwood cutting board, which can assist in prep and look good propped against a kitchen counter.

If you’re afraid of the dark…

As it turns out, an IKEA designer succeeded in making a functional light cost less than most people’s coffee orders. Keep this table lamp on a desk or use it as an occasional light source in a kitchen or hallway.

If your countertops need accessorizing…

Store dry goods on your kitchen countertop in this clear jar for easy access to whatever you use regularly: flour, granola, or even dog treats.
