Living Room Design 101

The living room. It’s the setting for game night with friends, dinner with your loved ones, and movie night when you want some quality alone time. But furnishing a space can be expensive, and too often your living space becomes the victim of overwhelm when presented with too many options and decisions that need to be made. Coming home becomes a chore when your living room is a seemingly endless to-do list.

Well ladies, get your checklists ready, because we’ve created the ultimate blueprint for designing a room that not only looks good, but functions perfectly with your lifestyle. No matter if you’re purchasing furniture for a studio apartment or a 4 BR house (just make sure you have enough seating for everyone who lives there, plus one guest!), we’re giving you the main ingredients to creating a space that you’ll love coming home to, starting with these 13 essentials. Whether you’re on a shoestring budget or ready to make a bonafide splurge, it’s an “Add to Cart” kind of day.
