ALL POSTS IN High/Low Challenge

  • Tell Your Friends

We changed things up a bit for this month’s High/Low Challenge by asking you to spot the lower priced item in not one, but four pairs of products. Why the bigger challenge? To keep up with Sabrina Soto’s SUPER big High/Low List in November’s HGTV Magazine!, of course! One lucky winner will receive the bigger-than-ever prize package filled with magazine goodies. Check your answers below to see if you were right!

blue sofa answer

The tight seat, sides, and back of the “low” sofa have a chic tailored look. Deep tufting and a pair of bolster pillows make the “high” sofa swanky.

black flatware answer

A matte finish gives the “high” flatware a modern vibe. This glossy “low” enameled version is dishwasher-safe.

purple ottomans

That’s purple leather covering the “high” ottoman on the left. The “low” choice offers a top that comes off for storage space.

sconces

Tinted glass shades give the allure of bronze, minus the cost on the “low” option above. Each light can be switched on separately for custom brightness in the “high” sconce.

Get the buying info for these items and lots more High/Low buys here and in the November issue of HGTV Magazine, on sale tomorrow. Don’t forget to keep up with us on Twitter @HGTVMag, Pinterest, and Facebook!

Last year Sabrina Soto came together with our HGTV Magazine editors to curate a bigger than ever High Low Blowout, and you guys loved the extra shop-til-you-drop ideas. Well, we’ve teamed up again for the SUPER High Low List inside the November issue. We’ve got more than 30 pairs so similar you can barely tell them apart. With a list this big, it’s only natural that this month’s High Low Challenge (and prize package!) should be bigger, too, right? Right! Correctly identify the LOWER-priced item in ALL four pairs below, and you could win the double-sized HGTV Magazine prize package.

One winner will receive an HGTV Magazine tote bag, an HGTV Magazine iPhone 5 case, an HGTV Magazine notebook, and an HGTV Magazine mousepad, plus a copy of the November issue. All you have to do is leave your answer in the comments below for which item is priced LOWER. (i.e. Sofa: Bottom, Flatware: Left, and so on). Remember, you must correctly answer ALL four pairs for a chance to win. Come back Monday at 2 p.m. to see if you were right!

We challenged you to spot the price difference between two gorgeous green campaign dressers. Did you guess correctly? You won our vote for “Best Eye for Design” if you answered Left: low, Right: high. One lucky winner will be chosen and notified by email.

As usual, Sabrina Soto’s High/Low List is packed with great items at every price range, but these two really grabbed our attention. The unmistakable campaign-style hardware on the MDF and poplar chest on the left makes it a cost-conscious choice. And eight layers of lacquer means the higher-priced piece at right has some serious shine.

We want them both!

Campaign furniture was originally used for — you guessed it — campaigns. Military units appreciated it for its portability, as chairs and chests were made to be easily broken down and reassembled — perfect for a troop on the move. These days, the stylish brass corners and unique drawer pulls make campaign dressers sophisticated focal points of any room.

There may be history behind the style, but you don’t have to pay antique-level prices to sport this trend in your home. In HGTV Magazine’s newest High/Low Challenge, we ask if you can name the price difference between these two chests. One winner will receive a prize package that includes a copy of the October issue, an HGTV Magazine iPhone 5 case, and an HGTV Magazine ice cream scoop. All you have to do is leave your answer in the comments below (i.e. Right: high, Left: low or vice versa). You must answer correctly for a chance to win. Come back tomorrow at 2 p.m. to see if you were right!

Take a seat and see if you were right. We asked you to look at two similar stools to see if you could correctly tell which one was priced higher than the other. If you answered Left: high, Right: low, then you are correct and would clearly make a good shopping buddy. One lucky winner of the HGTV Magazine prize package will be notified by email.

These stools caught the eye of both our market director and Sabrina Soto to make it on September’s The High/Low List. The maple barstool on the left is upholstered in easy-to-clean indoor-outdoor fabric, so you never have to worry about stains. The right polyester pick has such a friendly price tag, you might as well buy a whole set. See what else made the cut by subscribing or picking up a copy when it hits stands Tuesday.

Enter for a chance to win a prize package that includes a copy of the September issue, an HGTV Magazine iPhone 5 case, and an HGTV Magazine umbrella. All you have to do is leave your best guess in the comments below (i.e. Right: low, Left: high or vice versa). You must answer correctly to win. The answer will be revealed on the blog tomorrow.

A claw-foot tub is timeless, and you can find them at various price points, but were you clever enough to know which bathroom costs a little more?

You’re correct if you guessed: Left: high, Right: low. The lucky winner of this month’s HGTV Magazine prize package will be notified by email.

Were you correct?

On the left, relax in luxury with a fabric shower curtain, relaxing spa-worthy showerhead, classic tub, and organic cotton rug. You’ll be singing in the shower after you’ve saved a bundle with the look on the right. Costs drop with a vinyl shower curtain, rainwater showerhead, cast-iron tub, and soft blue rug. We think a nice long bubble bath is in order.

A staple in every issue, Sabrina Soto’s High/Low List is consistently one of the most popular HGTV Magazine stories. Who doesn’t love a good deal on an item that has a more costly counterpart? What’s more, even the pricier twin is still a great buy.

Oftentimes you can barely tell them apart, which is what makes the duos so fun. Enter our brand-new sweeps, The High/Low Challenge, that tests your design eye. Do you think you could tell the difference between the “high” and “low” item in a pair without knowing a single thing about them? Let’s find out!

How to play: Take a look at both pairs of outdoor loungers and umbrellas. One set is priced low, the other high. Leave your guess in the comments section below. For example: Left: low, Right: high or vice versa. One lucky winner will receive an HGTV Magazine tote bag, an HGTV Magazine umbrella, and a copy of the latest June issue. You must answer correctly for a chance to win. Come back tomorrow when we reveal the answer.
