A nicely decorated drawing room can have a huge impact and can create an immediate visual impression. The drawing room is basically the formal space and considered as the public room of the house.

Just as we discussed other budget home decor ideas previously, here are some ideas on budget drawing room decoration within BDT 5000.
There are no definitive measurements for a drawing-room. However, in a 1000 sq.ft home, 10 ft x 12 ft drawing-room may seem ideal. In a 2000 sq.ft house, on the other hand, 12ft x 14ft or 10ft. X 13ft may seem fit. The roomier a space is, the easier it is to decorate the room. Besides, it also feels great to spend time in a large space. Keep your decor at a minimal with simple arrangements. A sofa set, tea-table, lamp, an easy chair, showpiece stand, bookshelf and showcase (if the room is big) are usually common in a drawing-room. Aside from that, let’s see what new can you do with your drawing-room.
Paintjob, Curtain, and Carpet
Talking about the budget drawing room decoration, one of the simplest ways to revamp your drawing room is to paint it. Now you don’t need to paint the entire room for that matter. Only painting one wall or a corner is enough to give it a new look. Sometimes color can make a room feel dark even in the daylight, that is why always use light colors such as white, gray or different shades or textures in your drawing-room. A change in textures can transform the look and feel of a room entirely. A medium-sized jar of paint starts at only BDT 250.
You can also cover your floors with a carpet or rug, or you can change the existing one. Just getting one that fits the bill and design can result in a detached look. Always do your research before purchasing a carpet for your home. Selecting a darker colored carpet such as dark green, black or dark brown is ideal for you to use in a drawing-room. Because darker colored carpets will look less dirty and you won’t feel the need to clean them frequently.
In your list of budget drawing room decoration list, curtains should be up there at the top. When it comes to choosing curtains, there are certain things you need to keep in mind. For example, heavy curtains can make a room look smaller and are not suitable for small rooms at all. For a large room, however, heavy curtains can make the room very classy. Also, choose the one that compliments your drawing room interior. That way your drawing room will get a cohesive look. Starting at only BDT 300, you have plenty of options for carpets and curtains out there.
Decorating With Showpiece
It is hard to discuss budget drawing room decoration without mentioning the showpiece. Showpieces are easy to find and it can take your drawing room decor up a notch. You can easily embellish your interior with all kinds of local products. Hanging artsy photographs and framing them on the wall can be another good idea. You can also do some wall-art.

Bright colors can add dimensions to the space. Besides, you can also use decorating lights and place decorating plants here and there to make the room sync better with the season.
