1 LIVING ROOM, 2 BUDGETS
Your living room is such a special place in your home. Most of the time, it's where your friends and family gather the most! I get questions all the time asking when it's worth it to spend the extra money. To be honest - it's different for everyone depending on how you use your space! Creating the perfect space to gather with the ones you love can be worth the extra money, but here at MegMade, we love getting crafty when it comes to sticking to a smaller budget too.
I think the best way to go when tackling a space is to know what's worth spending money on and where quality won't make a difference, which may be different for each design. We thought it would be super fun to show you how we might design the same living room at two different price points. Check it out with all of our ideas and links below:
*SHOP THE LOOK*
Couch: This couch is one of my absolute favorites. It's our Forbes sofa here at MegMade, & it's the perfect option if you're looking to combine comfort and style. Shop the Forbes HERE.
Cabinet: This cabinet is absolutely perfect if you're looking for a piece of furniture with a ton of storage - & it doesn't take up much space! For this design, this piece would look great in our professional grade paint Hamilton. Click HERE to shop this piece in our inventory!
Rug: This rug adds a unique geometric element to the space. If you're not looking for color but still want a pop, our Seattle Geometric Area Rug is IT. Click HERE to shop the Seattle.
Lighting: Lighting is usually a place I always recommend going quality on. It's often a focal point in a space, and it really sets the tone for the rest of the room. Our King Antiqued Brass Glass Chandelier is one of perfection. Click HERE to shop!
Coffee Table: Love this coffee table! The perfect addition to the rest of the space. Click HERE to shop.
Chairs: These chairs are huge and so comfy! I love the leather look with the rest of the space. Adds another element of texture and feel. Shop the look HERE.
Side Table: Isn't this side table so cool?! Adds an element of antiqued brass to tie in with the light fixture & is so chic. Shop the end table HERE.
Custom Pillows: I LOVE going with custom pillows. They completely elevate a room, especially because you're able to perfectly curate them to complement the rest of your design. If you're interested in custom pillows, contact us!
*SHOP THE LOOK*
Couch: When looking to stick to a lower budget, it's important to know where to allocate your money and were to look for cheaper alternatives. A couch is a place where investing in quality is key. I would stick to the same couch even on a smaller budget. Shop the Forbes (again) HERE.
Cabinet: When you're sticking to a lower budget, it might make sense to do some DIY! Painting your own cabinet with our MegMade paint could save you a ton. We think the cabinet seen above would look amazing in our Weldon White paint. Click HERE to shop our DIY paint line and HERE to shop this piece in our inventory!
Rug: The Edinburgh is a fan favorite and one of our go-tos! It looks amazing, is great quality and you just can't beat that price. Shop the Edinburgh HERE.
Lighting: I know I said this before, but lighting is an area I would still go quality - even in a less expensive room. If I got to choose, lighting and couches are two areas I would spend the most money on if I was looking to stick to a tighter budget. Click HERE to shop!
Coffee Table: Love this coffee table for the smaller budget too! The perfect addition to the rest of the space. Click HERE to shop.
Chairs: These chairs are an amazing alternative on a smaller budget. They still look amazing for less! Shop the look HERE.
Side Table: This look for less is just as good! Shop the side table on our design board HERE.
Custom Pillows: I LOVE going with custom pillows. They completely elevate a room, especially because you're able to perfectly curate them to complement the rest of your design. If you're interested in custom pillow, contact us!
I hope this gave you some living room inspo! The amazing thing about design is that you can mix and match between the two price points to give yourself an elevated look for less!
