Living Room Ideas on a Budget

Check out these cozy living room ideas on a budget for refreshing your living room space on a budget.

Tip #1: Choose a Color Palette – and Stick to It

Before you start choosing pieces for your glamorous living room on a budget, pick the main palette of one or two colors, and keep the main furniture pieces within those color families. Consider sets – like these 2 piece living room sets – to make matching easier. Unlike busier, multicolor color schemes, sticking to one or two main colors will help create a clean, timeless aesthetic that will outlast trends – saving you time and money in the long run.

Tip #2: Make the Most of Storage Furniture

If your living room is on the smaller side, make your living room decor expand its storage capacity – instead of taking up precious space. From storage coffee tables with drawers to lift-top designs – and even day sofas that can double as nighttime beds – today's options for room-saving, budget-friendly furniture are endless.

Tip #3: Choose Durable Designs

When shopping for living room furniture, remember that 'budget-friendly' means nothing if the furniture isn't well-built, made with durable materials and designed to last. While furniture pieces of low quality will need to be replaced time and time again, costing you more in the long run, affordable furniture crafted from solid wood, thick wood veneers, 100% leather and high-density foam will keep you – and your wallet – happy and comfortable for years to come. 

Tip #4: Incorporate Standout Decor

Once you've chosen your main living room staples – such as the coffee table and sofa – define the look with statement decor. Incorporating smaller pieces such as a table lamp or living room art canvas will give you a chance to express your style personality without breaking the bank. Other cheap decorating ideas for living room walls (that's cheap as in budget-friendly, not cheap in quality or style!) include clocks, sconces and tapestries.
