While theres a lot of resources out there for decorating todays larger homes, theres very little about how to decorate an apartment or incorporate your furniture into it. Lets face it, many people are downsizing these days and even a 1,000 square foot apartment can seem pretty small after living in a house.
There are many different reasons why a person would want to rent furniture for their apartment instead of just buying it. College students often dont need to burden of carting furniture back a forth from their home to school and back for an example. Other people may be on the go so much that they dont want to bother with collecting things like furniture, and because of their jobs may have to move on a moments notice.
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.
