Home Decor Shopping in Bangalore That Won’t Break the Bank

Home Decor Shopping in Bangalore That Won’t Break the Bank

We live in the age of social media. Where getting likes on pics of your gorgeous home is a very valuable social currency. 

Unfortunately, when you go to any high-end boutique store to up your home decor game, something stands between you and the ❤️. 

Actual currency.    

But don’t worry. We’ve done the hard work for you. We have located some great spots in Bangalore where you can buy unique and charming decor to fill up your home with character. Without, importantly, wiping out your bank account.

Cane Centre, Shivaji Nagar

Nothing says, “Come, sit.” better than a cane chair with a cushion. Your used clothes are much more suited inside a cream-coloured cane laundry basket than your sofa. And which home is actually a home without a few cane stools, right?

Cane Centre in the Shivaji Nagar market has all these and more. At very attractive practices. Despite being located in a market known more for apparel and footwear, it still stands out. 

Take one look at their gorgeous chairs, sofa sets, baskets, and stools displayed at their entrance, and you’ll know why.

Bamboo Bazaar, Shivaji Nagar

If you want to feel transported back in time every time you enter your home, you need to pick up some of the vintage furniture at Bamboo Bazaar. 

And we’re not talking about newly made chairs, cabinets and mirrors with a “vintage look”. They have actual artefacts that have withstood the test of time. 

Of course, some of the items will not be in the best condition and will have to be repaired. But you can use that to your advantage when bargaining for a good price. But don’t walk away from that antique chair you like because you can’t haggle the last hundred rupees from the vendor. 

Chances are that the next time you visit Bamboo Bazaar, that chair would have been snapped up by some other vintage lover.

Pottery Town

The Pottery Town is an old settlement of potters in Bangalore’s Cantonment area. In other words, it’s the OG spot to get some earthenware in the city. 

The narrow streets are lined with homes where the artisans spend hours and hours making clay pots, pans, bowls, and cups. Those products are then displayed outside the homes for sale, sometimes eating up even more space from the street. 

Pro tip – If you are into photography, take your camera along. The images you’ll capture there can later be framed and put up on the walls of your home. 

Sunday Market, BVK Iyengar Road

Legend has it that if you spend enough time at the Sunday Market on BVK Iyenger Road, you can be rewarded with a wardrobe for as little as five hundred bucks!

While that might be rare, even if it is true, it can’t be denied that if you wish to get some charming, second-hand decor items, there’s hardly a better place in Bangalore. 

Available in the busy lanes are vintage wall clocks and candle holders, old-school typewriters, ornate trays and plates, and many more items that will make you go “I want that and I want it now!”

And if you’re ready to walk the length and breadth of the market to find the right items, and your bargaining game is on point, you’ll get them at throwaway prices.

It’s not easy, we admit. But that’s just the price you have to pay if you don’t wish to break the bank.
