Building a comfortable home on a budget might seem onerous, but if you have Rs. 5,000 to spare, this little guide should help you transform your apartment into a home.

With an abundance of labourers in the country, tasks like plumbing and carpentry are often considered menial and thus, paid for. However, DIY isn’t just a great way to build a new hobby and while away the free hours, but it also helps you to build and do up your own house, the way you want to, all on a budget.
Reuse, Recycle, and Repurpose
Just because something’s cheap, does not make it worthless. As mentioned before, DIY is a great way to recycle and reuse junk or cheap raw materials to create great decor. Another great idea is to get your hands on second hand furniture, which can be sold or discarded easily when you move again. And lastly, if you do move with your own furniture into your home, don’t buy new stuff, but instead, learn to repurpose it. If done correctly, a desk could easily double up as a dressing table, or a TV stand. All it’ll cost is a bit of your time, imagination, and creativity.
