How Much Does a La-Z-Boy Living Room Cost?
Have you decided to re-decorate your living room? This can be a big task and you may be wondering how much it will cost?
Aside from the kitchen, your living room is the most important room in the house. It is the epicenter of your home for family gatherings, entertaining guests, relaxing and watching tv. The living room is basically the ‘everything’ room!
There are many factors that affect the cost of your room. First, the furniture store that you decide to do business with and whether or not you plan to hire an interior designer can significantly impact the cost.
La-Z-Boy Ottawa & Kingston offers exceptional quality furniture with complimentary design services that may be useful to you in the planning of your living room.
This article will focus on the costs relating to a living room that is designed by you and your La-Z-Boy designer.
*Keep in mind that this article does not discuss labour or renovation costs. Today, we’re talking strictly about furniture.
Living Room Cost Factors
The cost of a whole room furnished by La-Z-Boy is largely dependant on two factors …
… the size of the room and your choice in cover textures.
1. The Size of the Room
The size of your living room makes a big difference in cost. The room size will dictate how many pieces of furniture we can fit into the space and the size of your area rug. The more furniture you have and the larger the area rug in the space, the more costly the room will be.
Will you add in a small desk or some shelving or an entertainment unit? This will also add to the price.
Generally, your seating selection could vary between $3000-18,000 (See how much a sofa costs)
2. Cover Textures: Fabric vs. Leather
If you choose a fabric cover for your furniture the room will start at $8000 and can go up to $18,000.
A living room with leather furniture will start at $15, 000 and can go up to $25,000.
Every layer added will drive up the cost.
While the size of the room and your choice in cover textures are the main factors of cost, there are several other costs of furnishing a living room to expect.
3. The Size and Quality of Area Rug
Area rug selection depends on the size, how it is made and the material it’s made from. It will vary from $300- $8000. Surprisingly some hand-knotted rugs could cost up to 30k. That being said the average cost of a good rug is $1200-$3300.
What a rug is made of matters. The material a rug is made of will determine the quality of the rug and affect how long it lasts. The main difference between materials often lies in their durability and clean-ability.
Some examples of rug material are wool, silk, nylon, polyester, viscos, and more.
Another factor is that rugs are generally given their colour with either natural, usually vegetable-based, dyes, or chemical dyes.
Finally, how the rug is made has the most impact on price. The most expensive technique is hand-knotted. The price is slightly cheaper if the rug was made by hand-tufted, woven, or looped. The cheapest way to make a rug would be machine-made.
4. Case Goods and Accent Tables
The next determining factor of cost is your choice in case goods and accent tables.
Coffee Tables: $500 – $2000
The price of a coffee table depends on your choice of wood, stone, glass, or mirror top.
End Tables: $400 – $1200
Whether the end table is regular, charging or nesting style can impact the price.
TV Units: $800 – $4000
The price of a tv unit is determined by the size. The sizes range from 36” to 72”. The cost of a tv unit can also drastically increase depending on if it is a regular unit or if the unit has an electric fireplace in it.
5. Wall Accessories
Wall accessories and window treatment is also an essential factor when determining cost. Your selection and sizes of artwork and window treatments can play a big role.
Artwork: $250 – $1200
Artwork can definitely cost much more when choosing from original pieces. The price can also vary depending on whether you purchase one single piece of art, an art set, or sculptural art.
6. Window Covering
According to experts, the average for new window treatments is $463 per window, with a typical range between $106 and $828.
Curtains & Drapes
Curtains and drapes are the easiest option to install. The costs dramatically vary based on your chosen materials and styles, with basic panels costing as little as $10 and specialized silk costing $1,000 or more.
Elementary Blinds & Shades
You can get aluminum blinds, roller shades, or other options in elementary styles for low prices—somewhere between $7 and $25 each. They’re easy to install, but aren’t very durable.
Custom Blinds & Shades
Higher-end blinds and shades offer much more versatility, giving you options like wood, bamboo, and motorized features to allow you to open and close your blinds remotely. They’re also custom-fitted to your unique windows. Basic options here amount to around $100 per window, with extravagant options costing $1,000 or more.
Shutters must be custom measured and installed, just like custom blinds and shades. Depending on the materials you use, they can cost as little as $20 per shutter, but the average is closer to $250 to $700.
*Installation cost is something you need to keep in mind
7. Lighting & Accent Accessories
The number of lamps and accent lighting combined with the quality of the light fixtures is another factor of cost. You can spend between $60 to $700 on a lamp.
Advice from Zeina: La-Z-Boy In-Home Designer
From my personal experience with my clients, it makes a big difference in cost depending on if you start fresh by purchasing all new pieces or if you are attempting to coordinate new items with pieces you already own. This affects the style and the environment we are building together to make the room reflect your lifestyle.
One of the most important things to me when I am designing is the house itself. The architecture details that inspire a lot of the design decisions together with the customer lifestyle.
