Check out our gallery of 25 cheap and beautiful sectional sofas costing less than $500. Plush, chocolate, grey, small, large, mid-century modern and more.
Did you know there are sectional sofas that cost more than $5,000?
The good news is that there are also a handful of sectional sofas under $500 (and quite a few in the $500 to $1,000 price range). Not many, but a handful. We’ve scoured some of the top online stores and found 10 of them.
That said, most of these lower costing sectionals are in the chaise lounge style. They aren’t the large, modular, multi-piece sectional sofas that will span an entire room. Instead, they’re smaller and are more or less a regular sofa with an attached ottoman. Some of the featured models below are 3-piece, which offers some configuration options.
The options in our gallery below are ideal for lower cost furnishing… but the more good news is that they look good. You aren’t sacrificing style much at all.
Also, because most of the low-cost sectionals are smaller, they’ll fit in smaller rooms and spaces such as condos and apartments. If you have a larger space, they work too… but you may want additional furniture to fill up the room.
Please note that the prices of our featured sectionals may change at any time.

IMPORTANT: With lower cost furniture, I strongly urge you to read customer reviews and to do your research. Even though these sofas cost less than $500, that’s still a lot of money. Just because a sofa is listed in this gallery does not mean it’s high quality. Moreover, its inclusion is not an endorsement – all we did was seek out options costing under a certain price point. Please do your research.
Oh yeah, you may be better off buying used. There are some great values if you’re spending this kind of money in the used furniture department.
