What Affects the 2BHK Interior Design Cost?

Firstly, let’s begin by acknowledging that no one can give you a definitive 2BHK interior design cost because no two homes or homeowners are alike. However, we can help you understand how each of the following elements contribute to the final 2BHK interior cost. In general, the industry thumb rule is to budget for at least 10 to 15% of the cost of your property. This can be higher depending upon your requirements.

#1: Size

  • Cost of interior design can go up when a wider area is covered

Also Read: 10+ Low-Budget House Designs in Mumbai Under ₹10 Lakh by Livspace

#2: Scope of Design

  • End-to-end interiors, including civil work, electricals, plumbing, etc., will cost more
  • If your scope is only wardrobes, kitchen and storage, the 2BHK interior design cost will be lower  

#3: Renovation vs New Property

  • Interior design cost for a renovated home will usually be higher than a new one if all other factors are kept constant
  • Renovation – Includes demolition costs, civil changes, faulty plumbing changes, electrical work, flooring
  • Maximum damage to an old home occurs due to water seepage and leaky plumbing, which can make bathroom renovation mandatory, which pushes up the cost

#4: Materials

  • Type of finishes and materials of shutters and carcasses will affect the cost of a 2BHK interior design
  • Acrylic is usually expensive but low-maintenance
  • Laminate is usually affordable and sturdy
  • Membrane has a seamless finish but can require maintenance

#5: Designer’s Fees

  • Interior design cost of a 2BHK at Livspace includes the designer’s fees and is not charged separately. It is our aim to give you complete transparency in our pricing and we have no hidden charges
  • In comparison, market rates can be vague and can shoot up by 45% from first quote to final cost. Also, most interior designers in the market have their own way of computing interior design costs which can be confusing and misleading

#6: Locality

  • A 2BHK flat’s interior design cost also depends upon the city and locality
  • Interior design of a 2BHK in an expensive locality can cost more
  • When it comes to the cost of products, services, raw materials and labour, there is a difference of 5% to 15% across different locations

#7: Design Preferences

  • Your preferred interior design style and complexity of design will affect the 2BHK interior design cost
  • Scandinavian style, which uses a lot of wood in the interiors, can cost more than a simpler style

While budgeting for a 2BHK home interior, the homeowner should list down the basic necessary furniture and decor that is required, like, a kitchen, wardrobes, storage, beds, sofas and curtains. The actual interior design costing will be derived from this including basic finishes and core materials. Once the initial costing is derived, if there is any difference from the budget set by the homeowner, components of interior design can be added or reduced.

Now that you know the factors that affect the 2BHK interior design cost, let’s show you how a combination of these factors materialise into budgets for real homes. We have picked sixteen #LivspaceHomes and bucketed them under the following categories:

  • Homes under ₹8 lacs
  • Interiors under ₹12 lacs
  • Homes under ₹25 lacs
  • Interiors under ₹45 lacs

#1: Interior Designs Under ₹8 Lacs

We love working on homes within this budget because it can be challenging to provide high-quality, functional and stunning homes without crossing the budget limit. These real Livspace homes are examples of how we designed stunning 2BHKs within this budget without compromising on the look and functionality of the design.

#1.1 A Clever & Compact Home for Mumbaikars

The cost includes the modular furniture plus the price of a wallpaper for an accent wall

Budget: ₹6 lacs approx.
Scope: Full home design with civil changes
Size: 850 sq. ft.

Everything in this home was modular and picked from the Livspace catalogue, making the furniture cost for a 2BHK more affordable than if the pieces were customised.

  • Countertop and backsplash material – Quartz
  • TV unit, wardrobes and beds in the bedrooms
  • Budget option – Wallpaper for the accent wall in the dining room

My experience of having my home designed by Livspace was smooth. I appreciate Avani’s work the most in my kitchen, where I spend a major part of my day. I also love her ideas that have materialised into the pooja space in our living room.

  • In the kitchen, the wall was hacked down to create a breakfast counter
  • Space-compliant, multifunctional modular wardrobe designs

I am really happy with Livspace’s service, they did timely follow-ups, and they really took the ownership. I was handling everything alone, so I couldn’t visit every day to supervise, but they took the ownership, the design is awesome and the 3D design that they made, came out just like that. Overall, it was a nice experience, it sounds a little expensive but it was totally worth it.
