living room full of furnitureWhether you are moving apartments and want to simplify the decorating process, or you’re a student in need of temporary furnishings, or you just want a new look for your place, furniture rental can be a smart way to decorate. And with plenty of options for every scenario, there’s a rental solution for everyone.

But which is best? Renting furniture piece by piece, choosing a roomful of furniture all at once, or furnishing your whole home? Decide which solution is right for you with our helpful breakdown below.

Move-In Ready

Move-in ready furniture rental helps you take the hassle out of decorating entirely. That’s because this option includes more than just a single sofa or a lone lamp. You’ll furnish living room, dining room, and bedroom(s) all at once, complete with a cohesive style that you choose. (You can also add office furnishings if you need them!) Because the move-in ready option accounts for so many pieces, and promises delivery and setup within 48 hours, furnish your new place is a snap.

If you are starting from scratch furniture-wise, whole-home packages are the smartest option for you. Maybe you are temporarily relocating for your job, and want your apartment fully furnished right away. Or maybe you’re moving to a new apartment and starting over with your decor. Move-in ready packages let you get everything done at once, so you can focus more on your move.

Whole Room Packages

Renting a whole room furniture package has a number of advantages. Pre-assembled sets for living rooms, bedrooms, and dining rooms make it easy to pick coordinated furniture that works in your space. With so many looks and combinations to choose from, there is a set for every style and square footage.

If you are supplementing your current furnishings with furniture rental, whole room packages may be the best for your needs. For example, if you’re moving from an efficiency apartment to a spacious two-bedroom, it might be time to add a dining room table to the mix. You may also prefer whole room sets if you want to avoid the process of shopping for, shipping, and setting up lots of separate pieces.

Renting by Piece

The piece by piece rental option is usually best for apartment renters who already have furnishings and/or housewares that they want to keep. Renting piece by piece allows you to choose from any number of living room, dining room, bedroom, office, and outdoor furniture pieces, plus housewares for bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom. You can even take care of small décor details like artwork and throw pillows.

Renting by the piece offers the ultimate in flexibility. Consider this option if you are particular about the way you decorate, you are mixing and matching rental furniture with your own pieces, or you only need one or two items to complete your home.
