In order for a house to be livable, it has to have a strong foundation. The same logic applies to the way your home is equipped. Even the cutest cabinets need to be filled with the right tools to keep your kitchen running smoothly. A brass bed is beautiful to look at, but it’s the cozy bedding that promotes deep, restful sleep.

There’s a joyful simplicity in resting your head on a soft, supportive pillow or preparing a meal with utensils that get the job done with ease. No one knows this better than the creative minds at Bed Bath & Beyond. That’s why they brainstormed Simply Essential, a brand new collection of your home’s most necessary items — hardworking, high-quality basics that are accessible to everyone, regardless of budget.

Membership has other privileges, too, like free shipping and 50 percent off interior design services. A Beyond+ membership is just $29 a month; it's kind of a no-brainer.

Simply Essential is a one-stop shop for all the items you need to design a comfortable abode that’s equipped to keep up with the way you live. Prices start at just $1, because a happy home should not be a luxury. Scroll for our handpicked favorites from the aptly named Simply Essential collection.

Maintaining good posture when you’re lying in bed is an often overlooked but very crucial component to good health. This fluffy pillow may feel incredible to the touch, but it’s also keeping your spine aligned all night long thanks to medium support. Even fans of down/feather pillows and foam pillows have happily made the switch to this machine-washable microfiber option. At $5, it’s more affordable than its peers, but performs just as well.

“This pillow did away with my morning neck and back pains,” wrote a fan. “I'm a side and back sleeper and this pillow has been great...slept very sound and not tossed and turned...never had the feeling of sinking too far into the pillow. Highly recommend.”
