Is it time for you to move out of your parent’s house and into somewhere you can call your own? Chances are, you are looking to rent a home or apartment instead of purchasing one and the topic of furniture pops up. You may consider buying new furniture and others may suggest renting. Is renting furniture the best option?
The answer to that question can vary due to different circumstances but there are a few things you must consider to make your decision.
How Long Do You Plan On Staying There?
If this housing situation is only for the short term, for instance, a university student or ifone’s job requires constant travel, then it is probably best to rent furniture. This is especially so when moving somewhere far away is on the horizon. Moving furniture long distance is not only expensive, but it is also a headache to load them into the truck and worrying about damage during transit or the moving company bringing them to the wrong address. The furniture could also take too long to arrive at your destination. Unloading the truck and reorganising them into your home is another avoidable hassle.
However, if this is the house you plan to live in for the rest of your life, you can opt to purchase furniture, have custom furniture made or go the rent to own furniture route.
How Much Do You Have To Spend?
Everything costs money. Buying or having custom furniture made has a hefty price tag. Ifyou live paycheck to paycheck and simply can’t afford such an expense at the moment, then furniture rental is for you. There are many furniture rental stores in Singapore where you can choose from a wide variety of styles to suit your budget and your personal needs.
However, if you have the capital at the moment, custom furniture can prove to be a great long-term investment. You’ll probably stick with a piece and avoid future spending on this particular piece of furniture.
How Much Time Can You Spare?
Because purchasing furniture is a huge investment for most, it will take some time to shop around, compare and then choose the best pieces. This will take even more time when you are getting custom made sofas and tables and so on. Most jobs or school timetables just don’t give you enough time! Furniture rental is pretty simple in comparison and in little to no time you will go from an empty apartment to a cosy place of your own.
When you consider these factors and answer the above questions, you will be ready to decide if furniture rental is the best option for you.
