Living in a metro city for a long time now has certainly taught me a lot of lessons including how to manage time, food, travel, and most importantly, managing my rented apartment. If you are renting an apartment in a city like Mumbai, the utilization and decoration of the space becomes very important.
Apartment decorating is not easy as it looks, especially when you have a small apartment. But as I have learned the hard way, the look of a living room in lifestyle magazines never really matches up the reality. If you are looking for ideas and cost-effective ways to help your apartment look perfectly decorated and styled, you have landed at the right place.
In this blog, I will talk about my experiences and few ideas on how you can use renting to make the decoration of your home a merry affair.
Before I share a few ideas, let’s understand the concept of rentingfurniture and appliances. Nowadays, it is easier to rent furniture and other things online, as it is more convenient, commitment-free, and cost-effective in comparison to buying them. Thanks to online portals like RentoMojo which enable everyone to #SmartlyOwn quality furniture, appliances, and vehicles at affordable cost. They also provide appliance and furniture at affordable RMIs (Rental Monthly Installments).
If you are planning on setting up a home in a new city, renting furniture and other appliances can be a good option if you frequently change locations every one or two years. If you are looking to move into a new space, it’s always good to look for an unfurnished apartment. So if you ask why, the answer to this is very simple. First of all, you will end up saving a lot on rent every month. Second, you won’t have to live with the furnishing which your landlord thinks is beautiful. It may be a green wall with a black sofa, and if you accidentally end up doing some damage to the furniture, you might end up paying extra for repair or replacement.
Now coming to the main question – Buy or Rent?
Follow below ideas and rentingfurniture will make decorating your home a merry affair:
1- If you are buying furniture, its value depreciates quickly over a period of time, but renting saves you from it. Just pay for what you use and swap it if you don’t like the colour after 6 months.
2- If you switch work locations frequently, shifting can be a major challenge for you. It will be expensive as well as an additional pain to the core of packing and shifting.
3- Splurge … On Certain Items: Rentbetter quality of furniture like sofa, beddings/mattress, etc. Renting gives you an opportunity to choose high quality products without worrying about the cost of purchasing and saving a huge chunk of cash out for the EMIs.
4- Subscribe to renting, and get your furniture from online portals like Rentomojo. Extremely affordable, the furniture comes with additional services like free delivery and installation, which means you don’t have to end up paying packers and movers out of your pocket! Not just that, it comes with free maintenance and relocation. This means complete peace of mind.
5- An unfurnished flat gives you the freedom to decorate the place in a way you want to — but that doesn’t mean you need to splurge money by buying your own furniture.
So, prefer renting over buying, and save money!
If you are rentingfurniture, you get many advantages over buying them (Rent Vs Buy). So based on the these benefits, renting furniture perfectly makes sense if you are setting up your home for the first time or just moved to a new city. Subscribing to online renting portals like Rentomojo can make your job easier. I checked the website, and they have a terrific range of furniture and essentials to help you decorate your home.
