Shopping for new home décor items is never straightforward. Actually, in most cases, the task feels like a mission impossible. 

Instinctively we know "you get what you pay for," so when we're looking to accessorize the best armchair or remodel our living room, we gravitate towards pieces that appear high-end and designed for longevity. 

The downside? We can't afford said pieces, so we end up committing to more "affordable" pieces; despite knowing the optics are not in their favor. 

But what if we didn't equate price with quality? What if there were pieces that looked and felt high-end and so luxurious but didn't put us broke; could there be such a thing? There is, and we've found it. 

Amazon is a goldmine for home décor items that look high-end and won't break the bank. Oh, and to prove that we put our money where our mouth is. 

From the best backsplashes (to rival the best peel-and-stick wallpaper) to the most sensational shatter-proof set, we've gone ahead and rounded up nine home décor items that look so expensive that your guest will be lusting over them for years to come. 

Don't believe us? Add these must-haves to your carts ASAP and see for yourself.
