Buying a home and then getting its interiors done is an expensive investment. We all want the best for our homes but what discourages most homeowners is that expensive-looking interiors come with an expensive bill too. This is especially true for budgeted small homes, where the space can also present a constraint. But it doesn’t have to be like that. You can get tasteful interiors for compact homes and you can get it within budget! Here are six items from Livspace-designed houses that cost under a lakh and are super-functional for small homes.

Everyone has heard of a tall pantry unit that can house an army of kitchen essentials. It is hard to disagree that it is not a blessing in a small kitchen.

Thus, when Meghna asked for a mandir, the designer decided to make it as elegant as it was possible to on a budget. The modular furniture units work as storage for the puja room. What makes this a luxe piece is the jali design behind the idols. 

Budget Lessons for Small Homes:
