If you're looking for a way to revamp your living room for the fraction of the price of a brand new sofa, look into investing in a new armchair. Because they're normally a bit cheaper, an armchair is a great way to transform the look of a room with a bit of color or texture, alongside the added functional benefits of extra seating.

While your mind may first wander to Ikea or Wayfair on the hunt for reasonably priced furniture, there's an option that might be hiding right under your nose — Walmart. With over 5,000 stores in the United States alone, this retail giant is one of the most accessible places to pick up just about anything under the sun, from food to furniture. Walmart promises to provide customers with everyday low prices on all of its merchandise, so we're looking at three of the retailer's most popular armchairs and deciding if they fit the bill based on quality, reviews, and construction.

Mainstays Microfiber Tub Accent Chair

Fans of sleek, modern, and minimalistic furniture know that even the most basic of pieces often carries a hefty price tag, but the Mainstays Microfiber Tub Accent Chair proves that there are exceptions to the rule. This chair has a deep seat and comes in five different colors that range from neutrals to bright (berry) red. It also comes with the convenience of being mostly assembled. All you need to do is screw in the legs — no tools necessary — and you're ready to go.

Customers gave this chair 4.6 stars across 1,524 reviews (as of this writing). It can be difficult to judge the size of a chair and its functionality based on a set of online dimensions alone, but most said that this item is a great, comfortable size that still doesn't take up too much room. Most of the negative reviews reference the quality of the fabric, but if you're OK with a bit of wrinkling, this is still a solid option for less than $120.

Better Homes & Gardens Papasan Chair

Out of all of Walmart's best-selling armchair options, this Better Homes and Gardens Papasan Chair may be the best selection for customers with a more bohemian style. Made of faux wicker, it features a 4.5 inch-thick cushion covered in velvety fabric (made from 100% polyester), and is available in four different neutral colors — dark blue, gray, pumice gray, and white — so you can cater your choice to your home's palette.

This papasan chair, which seats one (the cushion dimensions are 46.1 inches long and 15.4 inches wide), has earned 4.3 out of 5 stars across a whopping 1,326 reviews, so you can rest assured that there won't be any unexpected surprises with your order. For the most part, customers are a fan of this chair's high quality materials and construction, especially considering its relatively low price point at just under $180, but a few customers complained about their order arriving damp or rusted.

Mainstays Kinley Lounge Arm Chair

This Mainstays Kinley Lounge Arm Chair, another option from Walmart's Mainstays line, has a basic, squared-off design and removable cushion, along with the same easy, no-tools-required assembly process. It's covered in textured polyester that comes in six color options, both patterned and solid, and is designed to be lightweight and easy to move if you need to bring in some extra seating or want to switch around your room's layout. It offers a seat depth of 20 inches, a seat height of 18 inches, and a price point just over $120.

Reviewers give this chair 4.1 out of 5 stars across 238 reviews, and many say this is the best option they were able to find for the price. Most agree that it's not quite comfortable enough to lounge in for hours at a time, but it works well as a pop of color and extra seating in conjunction with a couch.
