Renting furniture versus buying furniture

In many cases it is very convenient to buy furniture, but there are some exceptions to this rule. For some situations, renting furniture is much more efficient and easier. But when do you opt for furniture rental and when do you proceed to an actual purchase? We are happy to explain it a bit further for you!

Renting furniture: a good alternative?

Of course we understand that in some cases it makes more sense to buy your furniture, for example if you have bought a home, which you are planning to enjoy for a long time. But when you only need your furniture for a shorter period of time, renting your complete interior can be quite ideal.  Unfortunately, people don' really consider this easy way of furnishing their house yet. 

Is furniture rental suitable for you? 

As mentioned before, there are some specific situations in which it is a good idea to rent your furniture. For example:

  • When you are renting your home for a temporary period, for example when you are an expat, diplomat or in the military.
  • When you are moving to another country for a short period of time and want to make your home feel as comfortable as possible.
  • When you are a HR-manager that needs to arrange a home for a foreign employee.
  • When you are waiting for your own furniture to arrive (that is being shipped by boat f.e) and you want to enjoy your new home straight away.

In the cases above (and even more) it is very convenient to rent your furniture instead of buying it. Not only because it’s hassle-free, but also because of the budget and ecological footprint. Check out our blog about the advantages of furniture rental to learn more about these benefits.

When do I buy furniture?

But when do you choose to buy your furniture? Well, first of all: when none of the situations above are applicable to your situation. Buying furniture is something that you can see as definite - you want to enjoy your couch, table and chairs as long as possible. And even when you choose to move to another house or city: you want to take your interior with you. Most of all, when you buy your furniture, you want to invest in something that you can enjoy for a longer period of time.
