When the idea of re-decorating a room comes to mind, oftentimes the financial investment associated with it tends to turn us away from it. Some of us may have an impression that decorating a room requires breaking the bank but allow us to let you in on a secret – revamping your room doesn’t have to be an expensive affair!
Even with a tight budget of just 7,000 Taka, you can give your room a noticeable makeover. Here in this blog, we will share with you how!
1. Add an accent wall
A budget-friendly way to make a significant impact in any space is adding an accent wall – a quick and easy way to give your room a focal point to draw attention to. All you need is approximately 2 Litres of paint and an afternoon to paint it. Choose the right colour according to your taste and style that compliments the other key elements in your room. If you’re feeling artistic go ahead and add some free-hand abstract murals.
Approximate expenditure: 500 BDT
2. Update your curtains
There’s surely something about simple sophisticated drapery that makes a room more soft and welcoming, hence updating the curtains is a great way to give a new character to your space. You can go for sleek lightweight cotton ones that will allow sufficient light in. Such curtains are readily available in the local markets. Make sure to hang them closer to the ceiling to draw the line up and give the room the illusion of height.

Instead of throwing old furniture out, give them a new lease of life with a quick and creative makeover. Sand them, coat them with paint and apply stencil detailing. You can also play with minor details like changing knobs or adding new legs, etc. With minimal expense, you’ll end up with a completely unique piece.
