How To Rent Furniture For Your First Apartment

Furniture Options

If you’re moving into your first apartment, the process of furnishing it can seem daunting. How do you know what to rent? How does renting furniture work? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered! In this blog post, we’ll give you a guide to renting furniture for your first apartment.

Moving into your first apartment is an incredibly exciting milestone, with a lot to look forward to, and it can also be incredibly stressful with a hundred unforeseen responsibilities. We at Inhabitr believe that furniture doesn’t necessarily have to be a hassle in the middle of this.

We’ll discuss what furniture is essential, and how to find the best deals on apartment furniture rental packages. So read on for all the information you need to furnish your new place!

Essential Furniture For a Small Apartment

One of the first things you need to do when you’re furnishing your new apartment is figuring out what furniture you actually need. This will depend on the size of your apartment, and how you plan on using the space. For example, if you have a small one-bedroom apartment, you may not need a lot of furniture. But if you have a large two-bedroom apartment, you’ll probably need more.

Keep functionality in mind: this space is going to be yours to use. You’d want your furniture to help you make the place more comfortable and conveniently arranged. A nightstand by your bed would make a difference when you want to conveniently access your stuff while resting, for example, while providing convenient storage.

Here’s a quick list of essential furniture for your first apartment:

– A bed

– A couch

– A coffee table

– Dressers or storage containers for clothes

– End tables or nightstands

Of course, you don’t need to stop there. You can also add other pieces of furniture like a TV stand, a bookshelf, or an ottoman. But these are the basics that you’ll probably need to get started.

Does renting furniture make sense?

The next question you need to ask yourself is whether or not renting furniture makes sense for you. There are a few factors to consider here. First, how long do you plan on living in this apartment? If it’s just for a year or two, it may not make sense to buy furniture – you can just rent it while you’re there. 

Second, how much money do you have to spend? If you’re on a tight budget, renting furniture may be a better option than investing a huge chunk of money in buying furniture. Third, how much time do you have to set up your apartment? If you’re moving in right away and don’t have time to shop for furniture, renting it may be your best option.

We at Inhabitr think that renting furniture is a great idea! It is becoming increasingly popular, especially among young people who are always moving around. You could get packages that include everything from beds and couches to coffee tables and end tables. And the best part is that you don’t have to worry about moving or storing the furniture when you’re done – the rental company will take care of all of that for you.

Inhabitr provides the option to rent, rent-to-own, buy new, and buy used furniture so that you can get exactly what works for you!
