Ever wondered how much you should budget to furnish your living room? I answer that exact question in this short video.
Keep in mind, most people furnish their living room (and other rooms, too) incrementally rather than all at once. So the grand total is arrived at slowly, so it’s a little less shocking. But if you enlist an interior designer, we are looking at – and suggesting you purchase – everything all at once. This includes a couch (or two), occasional chairs, a coffee table, side tables, maybe a sofa table, and lighting. We will also consider art, accessories, an area rug and probably window treatments.
If you want a ballpark budget for your own room, and what you think it needs, we generally suggest going to your favorite online furniture store (we usually suggest Crate & Barrel or Restoration Hardware) and fill your cart. Keep in mind, the items don’t have to match, or be the exact size you would need, but fill it up with high, medium and low priced selections – and check out that grand total. This is a ballpark figure of what you will need to budget to furnish your living room (or any other room for that matter).
