For upgraded R&R sessions at home, get this aroma diffuser from Muji. It’s not just aesthetically pleasing, but also extremely functional by adding a pleasant smell to your home. And, depending on the scent or essential oil you use it with, can help reduce stress and promote better sleep.

There are 2 light settings that allow it to double as a nightlight. Never fret about accidentally leaving it on overnight either – both the light and mist can be timer-controlled too.

Price: $89


2. Porcelain toothbrush holder

They’ll help add some organisation in your life, and they’re also coloured coded for easier identification.

Price: $4.30

Most of us follow the age-old Asian culture of taking our shoes off before we enter a house, but some of us adopt wearing indoor slippers instead. Besides the health benefits like avoiding fungal infections and having better foot support, getting the right slippers also has the potential of making your house feel more like home.

If you’re looking for indoor slippers to add to your home or office, you can get them from Muji. Be spoilt for choice by their many colours and patterns for you to choose from, that all exude a minimalist style.

Price: $12.90


10. Screwdriver set

DIY tools like screwdrivers are house essentials but they’re usually the last thing you’d expect to look pretty. Cue this mini screwdriver set from Muji which strays from the typically large and clunky tools that are often tucked away in storage. They’re compact enough to leave at your work desk or fit in your bag in case of emergencies.

11. Beech utensils

Dustbins aren’t the only thing that can look great in wood tones – swap your usual metal spoons and forks with wooden utensils to upgrade the aesthetics of your meals as well. Muji even sells them for different purposes, like dessert spoons, soup spoons, and teaspoons.

The benefits of wooden spoons? They avoid leaving scratch marks on surfaces of other plates, pots, and pans in your kitchen storage. And unlike metal spoons, they don’t conduct heat so you won’t accidentally scald your hand if you leave your spoon in hot soup for too long.

Price: $8.90 each


12. Acacia tray

An Acacia tray may look unassuming, but it can actually transform the appearance of your home in multiple ways. You can put a simple vase or centrepiece on this tray and leave it in the middle of your dining table, use it to serve drinks to your guests, or even surprise your loved ones with breakfast in bed.

If you want to collect a full set for your kitchen, they also sell Acacia bowls and plates of different sizes.

Price: $29
