Furniture rental is a growing industry that allows you to rent various furniture items rather than purchase them. This type of arrangement presents large cost-saving opportunities for all types of people and businesses. Many people rent furniture to help them meet temporary needs while others rent furniture consistently on a long-term basis.
While it is a popular industry, there may be some misconceptions when it comes to furniture rental. Here are 4 furniture myths that we think could use some clarification.
Myth#1: Furniture Rental is only for Home Stagers
Home stagers are professionals who prepare homes for display in preparation for a property sale. While it’s true that many home stagers rent furniture for the process, they aren’t the only ones who rent furniture. There are various other people who rent furniture, including:
- Everyday residential consumers—many homeowners are discovering the value and benefit of renting furniture as opposed to purchasing it
- Professionals—these are persons seeking a professional look for their office beyond what is normally available in retail stores and furniture warehouses, such as executives, entrepreneurs, and other persons
- Corporate personnel—many businesses and corporations rent furniture for everyday office use, meetings, and conferences
- Insurance housing professionals—furniture rental is popular among insurance professionals, who help provide furniture to persons whose dwellings have been affected by natural disasters and other similar situations
The next time you enter an office or professional setting, take note of the furniture—a lot of it may be rented!
Myth #2: Rental Furniture Choices are Drab
Some may have the misconception that furniture rental only involves run-of-the-mill, standard “stock options”. Not true! Because of the higher turnover rate in acquiring new furniture, furniture rental options can often be more cutting edge than what is available in even the more popular furniture stores.
Furniture store choices can sometimes involve cookie-cutter designs. Think about it—if it’s bought in a store, chances are, one of your friends or neighbors might have the same furniture already! Furniture rental allows for a wide variety and depth of interior designing choices that are unique and fashionable.
Myth #3: Anything That has to do with Furniture is Expensive
When it comes to furniture, some consumers have the notion that “everything is expensive”. While some furniture may be expensive to buy, the same is not necessarily true when it comes to renting furniture. With furniture rental, you don’t have to invest large amounts of your resources on the actual purchase of the furniture. You can also rent for a time period that suits your needs and budget, and save money that can be used for other purposes.
Myth #4 Furniture Rental only Involves Chairs and Tables
False again! Furniture rental can cover a wide range of items and pieces, including the following: accessories such as lamps and plants; bedroom items like beds, dressers, and chests; and various types of tables. Thus, furniture rental is great whether you’re looking for a complete overhaul of your home’s look, or if you only need a few items to jazz up the place.
For even more value, you can select complete furniture rental packages to round out your home or office.

Whoever came up with the phrase “good things come in small packages” was certainly dead-on in terms of living space and decorating. Not all of us can afford to live in a big mansion and there is nothing wrong with that. So, rather than dwell on the fact that your space is too small, why not make it look grand? Don’t get discouraged, get busy. Here are our best tips for staging tougher spots:
Small Spaces Can Be Fun
In fact, decorating or staging for a small space can be a fun challenge that requires you to turn on the innovation. There are some advantages to a smaller space; namely it won’t cost as much to furnish. A smaller home is also warmer, and offers the true feeling of calling it “Home-Sweet-Home.”
Of course, storage in a small home/apartment/condo/townhome is extra tight, and this often means having to forego some of the things that you may have accumulated over the years. For each area of your home, you’ll want to go through your existing belongings to make the most of your smaller spaces before tossing out items.
For kitchens, use over-the-cabinet space for storage of little-used items or perhaps a decorative display of collectibles. You can also hang pots from a rack suspended from your ceiling or open up cabinets and drawer space by placing cooking utensils and spices in pretty baskets, crystal bowls or colorful ceramic pitchers.
If there’s enough space in your closet, move your dresser or set of drawers inside to free-up main area floor space. Instead of night tables, place a small, wall-mounted shelf on each side of the bed to hold nighttime items including a small lamp. However, if you’re low on closet space, use the space under your bed to store out-of-season clothing. If you need a set of drawers but can’t afford one, make or buy an inexpensive bookshelf and attach a colorful piece of canvas to cover up the clothing but still offer easy access.
Also, try to use multi-functional pieces of furniture like a loft bed, which puts your bed off the floor. If it’s high up, it opens up the floor space for other uses; a sofa or desk can fit easily underneath for more space-saving. If you don’t have enough space for a loft bed, or you don’t like sleeping in high places, a futon or pull-out daybed can act as a sofa by day and your bed at night.
Use an over-the-toilet shelving unit to hold essentials if cabinet space is small. You can use several decorative hooks instead of a towel bar and hang up more towels (and robes) in a small wall area.
Another important factor to remember when you have a small space to decorate is that dark colors make things appear smaller while lighter colors can make things appear bigger. If you’re bored with your white walls, add a neutral color like soft beige, or a pale yellow shade to change things up.
Staircases and Steps
Empty space under the steps or staircase space doesn’t have to go to waste. Besides using it for storage, set up bookshelves inside to hold books or display items. Also, install additional hooks on the walls to hang up clothes that won’t fit in other closets. Or add a small reading chair to curl up in the small, quiet space or use for meditating.
Happy Small Space Living
Finally, it is important to find the style that you like. Whether it’s modern or eclectic, the overall style should reflect your personality. After all, you’re the one who is going to be living there whether it’s a property owned or leased. With just a little creativity, you can make small space look homey, as well as impressive.
If some walls could talk they might say: “Decorate us.”
Empty walls — regardless if they are in a large McMansion, a luxury apartment rental, or a small bungalow — are downright boring.
Any way you look at it, they should scream “someone lives here” and reflect the resident’s individual style. Where do you begin? Choosing and arranging wall art can be daunting but it doesn’t need to be. Use your creativity and unique perspective to decide how it should be done. It’s easy and fun to make it happen with a few simple decorating tips.
