The Best Earplugs for Sleeping

We take sleep seriously around here. From finding the best cooling sheets to sleep masks to mattress toppers, we’re obsessed with creating the perfect place to snooze — because sleep is THE most important thing for your body and mind. It’s a basic human need, and sleep deprivation can affect every aspect of your life. Simply put, sleep helps your brain work properly. Plus, it plays a vital role in your physical health. (I’ve mentioned this before.) But getting the perfect sleep setup? It's easie

The Best Vacuums for Pet Hair, Tested by HGTV Editors

Living with pets comes with a lot of positive benefits, like increased happiness and lower stress levels. But those sweet, four-legged roommates can also create a big mess. Every piece of upholstered furniture is suddenly a pet-hair magnet, and tumbleweeds can magically appear overnight. This is where a good pet vacuum cleaner comes into play. Not every vacuum is created equal, though — but you probably know that by now if you have pets. There are several important factors to consider when choos

The Best Mattresses, According to Serious Sleepers

You read that right — one-third. And according to sleep researchers, it's physiologically essential for us to do so. If you're sleeping on a 20-year-old box spring, I'll venture to say you're not getting the quality of sleep you should and could be getting. Mattress shopping isn't easy though, especially if you share a bed or live in an apartment. Boxed bed companies have been around for more than a decade, but it seems we've only just discovered them over the past few years, making it even easi

The Best Blankets, According to HGTV Editors

This is without a doubt my favorite blanket in the world. I currently have two and give them as gifts whenever I can. They're incredibly soft and also incredibly stretchy, which is great because you can really get them over your feet and not have your toes freeze as you're watching all of Ozark in one sitting. My dog also loves it, which is why I had to get another one — and it washes really well and doesn't lose its softness over time (I've probably washed it 50 times, and while it looks slight

The Best Cooling Pillows, Tested by HGTV Editors

The Layla Kapok Pillow gets our Best Overall pick because, simply, our tester absolutely loved it. In fact, she loved this pillow the moment she pulled it out of its reusable bag. The removable pillow cover is made of a breathable polyester/viscose blend with CuTEC® copper fibers woven in to keep the pillow cleaner and cooler. The cover is soft, fluffy and cool to the touch — not artificially, like an ice pack, but it doesn’t retain heat so it always feels like the cool side of the pillow. CuTEC

The Best Sleep Masks, Tested by HGTV Editors

If you’re on this page, then you’re probably looking to better your sleep routine in some way. Sleep is crucial for your emotional well-being, physical health and mental health. It’s a basic human need, and sleep deprivation can affect every aspect of your life. Simply put, sleep helps your brain work properly. Plus, it plays a vital role in your physical health. Getting a good night’s sleep can help reduce your risk of heart disease, kidney disease, high blood pressure and diabetes, according t

The Best Bluetooth Speakers, Tested by HGTV Editors

Bose, best known for its speakers, headphones and home audio systems, takes our top spot for its SoundLink Color ll Bluetooth Speaker. At just over a pound, this compact speaker packs big sound into a small, water-resistant device that’s durable enough to take with you anywhere you go. Don’t be fooled by its soft, sleek, silicone exterior — it’s incredibly durable and just as prepared for outdoor adventures as it is sitting neatly on a bedroom nightstand. It’s incredibly easy to use with voice p

The Best Outdoor Patio Umbrellas for Your Backyard

Spending summer outdoors is only enjoyable if you have a shady retreat nearby. The easiest way to create shade on your deck, patio or in your backyard is to add a patio umbrella. Patio umbrellas come in a variety of sizes, styles and materials so you can pick the best one for your lifestyle and location. SIZE: The size of your umbrella will determine the type of base you need to keep your umbrella steady through various weather conditions. Looking for an umbrella to shade your outdoor dining sp

The Best Essential Oil Diffusers, Tested by HGTV Editors

How to Choose the Right Essential Oil Diffuser There are a few things to consider when buying an ultrasonic diffuser, from tank size to misting modes. Let's start with tank size; tanks can range from 100ml up to 1,500ml — and sometimes even larger than that. Larger tanks can fill a larger space with scent and can last longer before the water needs to be replaced. Smaller tanks, while needing a frequent refill, can satisfy a small room and are ideal for portability. Whether a diffuser offers int

The Best Handheld Vacuums, Tested by HGTV Editors

Not every mess warrants lugging out your heavy everyday vacuum cleaner. Sometimes you just need to grab something quick to pick up stray crumbs, pet hair and dirt. This is why everyone needs a cordless, lightweight handheld vacuum in addition to a larger multi-surface vacuum. These handheld cleaners aren’t meant to tackle entire-home messes (although they may claim to); they’re designed for spot cleaning. Plus, they’re particularly handy for cleaning upholstery, stairs and hard surfaces because

36 Cat Furniture Finds That Actually Look Good

A tall, carpeted cat tower can feel like it takes up the entire house — and in some cases, it may! I once lost half of my tiny apartment's living room to a four-tier behemoth that we named Kitty City because it felt like the size of a small metropolitan area. While it's important to satisfy your feline's craving for scratching and climbing, it's also important to find a toy that still allows your home to be YOUR home. After more than a decade of living with cats (two, in fact), I have a pretty

12 Best Dog Beds for Every Pup's Needs

Dogs can be just as picky as humans when it comes to where they sleep, and their unique sleep positions play a huge part in their bed needs and preferences. I know this from personal experience. My medium-sized dog, Beatrix, has made it very clear she prefers smaller beds with bolsters, so she can curl up in a ball but still keep her head propped up and supported. (And also to make sure she can see everything going on.) There’s a lot to keep in mind when buying the perfect snooze spot for your

16 Practical Products Under $50 That Will Completely Organize Your Bathroom

When it comes to bathroom organization, you can never have enough storage. Most bathrooms are notoriously tiny with maybe a cabinet and maybe a few drawers. If you’re lucky like me, then your main bathroom has a single pedestal sink and one towel rack. I have zero built-in storage for a bathroom shared by two adults and a child. We’ve managed to get a little creative with an over-the-toilet storage cabinet and a three-tiered rolling cart that somehow contains all of our stuff and still looks nic

The Best Dog Food Storage Containers

Dog food bags are notoriously bulky and difficult to close and store on their own. That’s where a great dog food storage container comes into play. Keeping your pet’s food properly stored will keep out pests and help maintain the food’s nutritional value while keeping it fresh for longer. According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, you should “store pet food and treats in the original container or bag. This allows you to have the UPC code, lot number, brand and manufacturer, and 'best by'

These heavy blankets, typically ranging from about 15 to 25 pounds for adults, are designed based on deep-touch pressure stimulation, which helps release serotonin in the brain to help you

15 Ways to Organize a Small Closet for Less Than $30

Most of us aren't blessed with the luxury of having a celebrity-sized closet. You know, closets with shelves just for shoes, glass display cases for accessories and a beautiful revolving carousel for clothes. In fact, most of us don’t even have a walk-in closet to store all of our stuff. Reach-in closets are typically plenty of space if you know how to keep everything properly organized. Whether it's out-of-season clothes or belts and scarves, there’s an easy and affordable way to keep it all wi
