Depends a lot on the size of your budget and scope of your project. You will need to be much more specific to get answers that will be useful.

Well, this is a DIY site..........so, Doing It Yourself saves about 85% of the cost of a new project since LABOR costs are most of the expense.

As for materials, most big box stores have areas where things like carpet remnants are cheaper than buying from the roll, mis-tinted paint is just a few dollars per gallon. For appliances, check for "scratch and dent" items. Local Habitat for Humanity Restore shops, Hospice shops, and Salvage Yards/Stores have used items of very high quality, some may even be new. Lots of ways to save.

P.S. Of course, none of this may apply if you live outside of the U.S. which it appears that you do.

In USA the baths and the kitchens cost more than any other, except the land scaping over time - must have that grass and feed the deers.:smile:

Don't know the kinds of bath and kitchens the people in mumbai want. Minimal usually costs less - check ikea style: shelf instead of cabinet.

Mumbai sounds like india and possibly many cheap cabinet makers with generic carvings - imitation old, but still step above flat slabs from homedepot.

If you are posting from India , few here are likely to know the specific "protocols" that apply . I have known what it's like to be short on funds , though , & the universal method of getting things done "on the cheap" involve compromising your demands & scrounging what you can find .

Not sure , is "Craig's List" international ?
