Selecting an apartment is hassle enough but what do you do after you have secured an apartment? Moving in seems like the obvious answer but most often than not, in order to get a cheaper apartment we often end up with an unfurnished place. While the décor canvas is now open for your interpretation as you get to deck it just the way you like but this does not come without a few hiccups. When you get your first apartment with the idea of making it a permanent residency, investing on décor sounds fine but what for those who do not wish to make it permanent, rental furniture seems like a more obvious answer. But there are a few heads up you need to be aware of before you go for that option.
- Rent only what is required and by space
Furniture renting houses make a wide range of offers. It is easy to get swayed when the wooden world is opened wide to you but do remember to take only what is required. If you are on a tight budget stick to the basics only like a bed, cupboard, table, and chair. It is also important to keep the size of the furniture in mind as you do not want to end up with a bed that takes up your entire room.
2. Try to make it match with the rest of the décor
Furniture is a necessity but they are also a part of your apartment décor so be sure to keep all your pieces in sync in terms of color and texture. If you are keen on the look of your furniture then you can even plan it in accordance with the wall color.
- You need to keep it clean
Rental furniture comes with the added responsibility of keeping them extra clean compared to your owned pieces. And it is better to stick to that plan since it is your deposit money at stake.
- A cheap furniture is also an option
Not every bit of furniture you own has to be printed from décor magazines or your parent’s place. Use your imagination to make your furniture reflect your style. Don’t be afraid to experiment with DIY stuff. Unlikely pieces of items too can be turned into furniture pieces like a wooden crate for a shoe rack.
Alternately, you can also opt for cheaper furniture like foldable tables, plastic chairs, and stools. But one piece of item you should never compromise with is your sleep, so do spend a little on your bed and cushions.
