One of the easiest ways to freshen up your living room is to invest in a new sofa. By bringing in a fresh style, color, or fabric, you can easily transform the entire vibe of your living space.

Whether your current living room sofa has seen its better days, or you simply need a change, the good news is that it doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

While choosing from all the different styles, sizes and fabrics can be a little overwhelming, we’re here to help. Read on for our top picks in affordable couches under $1,000.

How to Choose a Great – But Affordable Sofa

When choosing a sofa for the living room, take the time to think about a few things before hitting the “Buy” button.

  • Are you going for casual comfort or a more formal vibe?
  • What sort of design do you prefer? (Straight lines, type of arm support)
  • How much space do you have?
  • What is your color/upholstery preference?
  • What theme have you chosen for your room?
  • What colors will you be working with?

Jot down your answers to some of these questions. Then, either flip through Pinterest to find some inspiration, or start shopping around by utilizing the filter settings most furniture retailers utilize. Narrow your selection, read reviews, talk to friends, and then make a purchase!

Or – pick from one of the seven below!
