Five Ways to Furnish Your Apartment on a Budget

On a tight budget? Here are a few tricks you can use to furnish your apartment without spending an arm and a leg!

  1. Pick the Essentials:
    What do you need at the moment? Don’t go overboard – buy the items you need now, and keep the rest for later.
  2. Set a Monthly Budget:

    Every month, set aside a budget for your furniture needs and stick to it. If you don’t need to buy something a specific month, then good for you; you can spurge on a night out with friends or a shopping expedition.
  3. Look Around:
    scour your city for furniture stores and visit a few shops before making a decision on buying something; usually stores have similar furniture items (especially basics) and will have a range of prices. Don’t be afraid to ask about sales too.
  4.  The Power of Social Media:
    Join a few pages for the local community – you’ll be surprised at the number of people who are selling almost brand new items online. Bahrain has a very active renters market, so take advantage of that!
  5. DIY:

    There are many things that you can do on your own, especially when it comes to décor and accessories. Take the time and make a piece or two for the house; and then you can proudly show them off to your guests.
