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