A house becomes a home through its personalized décor and the majority of that forms because of our furniture. Furniture makes your home feel lived in, welcoming and complete. A major step towards this platform is the idea of renting the furniture pieces that you want. While widely popular many are still unaware of its significance. So why should you consider renting furniture rather than the traditional habit of buying?
It saves money
There is no doubt that renting furniture is much more pocket-friendly than buying. This is further true for millennials who are on a tight budget because of their new job. A bedroom package, complete with a good quality bed, side table and chair, dresser, and a wardrobe, has the market value of around Rs. 1 lakh. However, when in case of renting, the price comes down to about Rs. 3,599 per month. You can even buy piece by piece to further suit your budget.
Prioritize your style
Today’s youngsters have vastly different preferences than their parent when it comes to décor. Their styles are often changing and yet they are stuck with 30 to 40 years old furniture in their room. Renting sleek, modern and multi-functional furniture is an easy solution here. One can easily exchange their pieces at the end of their contract for the latest trendy designs available.
Extra furniture for special occasions
Everybody has faced the situation of having extra guests in their homes when there is not enough furniture for all of them. This is a rather embarrassing problem and once again furniture rentals come to the rescue. Occasions like weddings often call for extra guests who will live at your house for a few months but it is simply not feasible to buy extra beds and wardrobes for all of these people. Rent furniture pieces according to your needs and then return them when the guests leave.
Maintenance mayhem is over
Every piece of furniture needs regular maintenance if you want to retain its quality. Millennials are rather busy with their jobs, moving to new cities, studies, etc. and find it very hard to take out extra time to care for their furniture. This is why many rental companies now provide free check-up and maintenance visit every 6 months for cleaning, repairing and servicing of the furniture. Simply rent your décor and now it’s up to your service provider to take the best care of your furniture.
Relocating is not a headache anymore
Shifting to a new house is a hassle and everyone can relate to it. People often relocate their homes in search of a better neighborhood. On the other hand, many young professionals also change their localities to suit their budget and current job. Packing, calling the movers and packers, and transferring the furniture is a very hectic process. This is why nowadays many furniture rentals offer complimentary services like moving your furniture along with you without engaging any extra charges or hustle.
