3. Buy Second Hand Items
If you don’t have even enough money to buy new furniture, don’t fret over! There is no shame in buying second-hand items. Ask your friends and family members if they have anything that they want to sell. Or you better visit some places where such items are sold. For example- there is a market in Uttara (near Uttara 14) area where second-hand furniture items are sold. Moreover just behind the DCC market located in Gulshan-1 there is a marketplace where used items are auctioned at competitive prices. You can try your luck there!
Just remember while buying second-hand items that quality is more important than style. Check every inch of the piece before buying it and see whether you will have to spend more money to fix anything. If yes, then don’t buy it because you definitely don’t want to squander extra money.

5. Customized items
If you are really running short of money, then why not use your own skills? Décor can reflect your personal thoughts and skills. So, use skills that you have to create your own items. For example- if you are an artist, paint something exclusively for your home. Then hang the painting in the wall. It will not only enhance the look of your home but also give a message to your guests that you are a good artist. In fact, people are spending even lakhs to buy paintings with a view to decorating their home. In this way you can save your money. Moreover if you have a huge collection of books, then show it off. Just buy a book corner and put all the books in it gracefully. That corner will also act as a showpiece for your home. Always remember that anything will work as long as you let your personality reflect in it.
Finally, if you are reluctant to spend money on these things, then create something very personal. Choose the best moments of your life and frame those moments – I mean make a photo collage with all the happy moments of your life and then hang those photo frames in the drawing room or bedroom. It will change the overall look of the room for something better.
Well, decorating your home within a budget frame is always a tough task. But with proper planning it can be done. Just be patient while putting your thoughts into it.
