Small living room buys under $100 are one of my favorite things to shop for. It’s my number one room of the house to decorate, but I don’t normally have the budget to buy lots of big items at once — which is why I like refreshing it with lots of little ones, instead.

By adding just a couple of different items to your room, you can subtly change how it looks and feels. Whether it’s a plant on the coffee table or a soft blanket thrown over your couch, you really don’t have to spend a lot to add style and sophistication.

If you’ve been scrolling through small living room ideas on Insta and want to switch up your own space, I’ve got you. I’ve rounded up a range of small living room buys under $100, that I’m adding to my cart right now.

How to decorate a living room with a low budget?

Inexpensive items like mirrors, plants, and blankets are all great for quickly adding style to a space. When shopping online, filter by price, so you can find buys within your price range. And, if you like getting crafty, you could also try making your own furniture and decor.

How can I make my living room look expensive?

Look for timeless items in neutral colors, and finish them off with thoughtful touches. For example, a sleek coffee table styled with seasonal flowers and candles always looks really chic. Also, be sure to look for unique items at places like Goodwill and thrift stores, as these will make people think you’ve splurged when you haven’t.

These picks are all fab staple pieces for any living room, as they’re colorful, useful, and versatile. If you like a more elegant look, these luxe small living room buys will make your place look bougie on a budget.
