Beautiful Budget-Friendly Living Room

Wondering how you can achieve a budget-conscious design without sacrificing style along the way? We’re going to show you how to create a stunning living room that comes in under $1,500.

When designing a room on a budget, pay attention to your colour palette. You want to keep the room in a similar colour tone to make it look not only cohesive but also more expensive.

The couch has deep seating and clean lines. We couldn’t believe our eyes when we found out it cost under $400 dollars. We like that it’s simple and without too much embellishment. When shopping for a sofa on a budget, make sure to stick with items that don’t have a lot of detailing as that’s where you can spot poor quality. We then paired the sofa with fun zebra patterned side chairs. They bring a designer touch while keeping things consistent in a neutral grey tone.

The round glass coffee tables make a grand style statement. They are so inexpensive that we went with two for a layered look. And the side tables were a Craigslist find at $50. A simple coat of grey paint transformed them and they fit perfectly in this room. The lamps were also a cheap find at $65 each. We fabric painted the shades in a soothing grey color to match the room.

The long black console table is simple but it serves an important function in the room. It can become a TV stand and it has double shelving so it’s great for accessorizing.

The glass bottles are a very simple DIY project. We found a variety of empty glass bottles and painted them in similar shades to create a consistent and cool effect that takes accessorizing to a whole new budget friendly level. We then took four blank canvases and painted on a bold graphic design that really attracts your eye to the space.
