Work lamp

No excuses for not doing homework when your space has an adorable task light. We could see this as a bedside reading lamp, too. Krux wall or work lamp $40,

Make bath time a little less mundane with these cute hooded towels. They’re adorable hanging in your bathroom and come in two sizes: super tiny human and regular tiny human. Klämmig hooded towels, $8 each,

Pillow covers

Made from a natural fiber called ramie, these cushion covers are super durable and can be thrown in the wash. That busy pattern is on-trend but also detracts from the dirt that comes with kids. Johanne Cushion covers, $15 each,

Shopping bag

We love the versatility of the classic blue IKEA bags and are happy to see they’ve taken that same material and applied it to these new totes. The tough material means you can literally hose it down. These will probably last until the kids pack up and move to college. Ypperlig shopping bag, $2,

Side table

This new side table looks designer-y and high-end. We spy a handle, which makes it easy to move with one hand. This could be your new breastfeeding mate, it gives you a place to prop your breast pump, coffee and devices. Burvik side table $40,

Making your house kid-friendly seems to require a lot of step stools. Move over plastic, this stylish wood edition is only $25. It has little rubber feet to help with stability and is the perfect height to swap in for a little kid chair. Vito step stool, $25,

When we saw these new cabinets, visions of organized front halls and super smooth mornings danced in our head. They’re modular so you can make them work in a tight entryway or an overstuffed kid’s room. Hällan series cabinets, starting at $50,

This stool has been around the block, but there's a reason it's such a well-loved classic. These stools are so versatile and super easy to clean. IKEA has taken the popular series and given it an update with some bold new colours. We love them. Mammut stool, $9,
