So, maybe the time has come to move out of your parents home for the first time and into an apartment. There are a lot of things to take into consideration once youve chosen the apartment complex where you want to live. One of the things youll need to think about is furniture. The furniture you are used to from a home will not fit quite the same in an apartment. You must realize that apartments are much smaller than most homes. That means they hold less furniture and that the pieces of furniture you should be putting in the apartment have to be smaller than what you may be accustomed to.
There are other things you need to keep in mind when you are shopping around for rental furniture as well. Each company has their own policies on rental charges, and you should always find out what these charges are before to agree to any rental. Be wary of smaller rental companies, because they dont get the kind of business national companies do, they may charge you higher rental rates. Smaller companies may also lure you into their stores with gimmicks like they dont check your credit, but dont be fooled by this. Most rental companies do not check your credit, because if you dont pay, they simply come to your apartment and take the furniture back.
Picking the right furniture for a small apartment is really just about mindset. While stores like IKEA and Target have good choices for furniture that will work in a dorm room or a studio apartment, you can find suitable furniture for small spaces just about anywhere. You just have to think like a ships captain. Why a ships captain? Because the interiors of ships offer the best possible example of good usability and efficient use of space. Anyone who has ever had the good fortune to be on board a large sailboat or even a yacht knows how compact everything is, how much thought goes into how spaces are designed, and how well-built everything is. It becomes very evident that someone put a lot of thought into what was really necessary and then just ignored the things that were not necessary, and made the essentials work.
