It’s no news that we’re big fans of IKEA. How could we not be? When it comes to elevated design at low price points, the Swedish retailer is the clear winner. Our love affair only grows fonder when we’re in search of ways to give our rental a wallet-friendly upgrade. 

Take the bathroom: If you’re looking for a sleek hook to hang your towels, a place to store all those sheet masks, or even a new wall light to help you look your best when getting ready in the morning, chances are you can find it all on the Scandi brand’s website. You may discover something you didn’t even know you needed. Here are 13 of our favorites—make a trip to IKEA for a few and transform your space in an afternoon.
