Design Space - 12/29/2020

You are moving to a new place, to a new apartment. It’s basically a new start for you. An apartment has to feel like home. That’s when you feel the most comfortable and at ease. 

A very important part of accomplishing this feeling is having good & comfy furniture in your apartment. It’s all about the vibes, trust us. 

Inhabitr Comfy Furniture

When it comes to the question of a furnished apartment, the money factor is bound to creep inside your mind. But you do not have to worry about it. Inhabitr provides an array of furniture sets & products at extremely affordable rates. In this blog, we will look at five essential pieces of furniture required to furnish your apartment with a limited budget. 

  1. Bed & mattress – $200

So, first things first. It wouldn’t make sense to furnish all sections of your apartment if you leave out the bedroom. Sure, sleeper sofas are great but the comfort of a bed can be provided only by a bed. 

Beds are expensive, I agree. But it’s a good idea to invest in one if you are planning to stay at your apartment for a long period of time. You can choose from a collection of upholstered beds to sturdy frames. Inhabitr has got you covered, no matter what your style is.

If you intend to move again in a couple of months, the best idea is to rent a bed. Rental furniture is super feasible & helpful when you are constantly on the move. You can choose from a range of beds that we have at Inhabitr, and our rents start at only $10/month. If you really want to buy it, restrain your budget to $200.

It’s best to take a mattress on rent rather than buying one. Firstly, mattresses are quite heavy. Secondly, they are very expensive. Find a furniture company, like Inhabitr, that will let you rent mattresses for a meagre amount of $22/month. 

We provide cheap furniture at extremely affordable rates. You get cheap as well as chic furniture in one package. Furnished apartments are indeed the best, when you are planning to live comfortably.

  1. Sofa – $350

There will be days when you just want to lounge on the sofa. And that’s why you want to have a comfy one with extra-large pillows & throws. 

Surely, your friends will come over and you will host many parties. You can even opt for a sleeper sofa. These are extremely handy when guests decide to stay over for the night. 

We have a gorgeous collection of sofas & sleeper sofas for you, and this falls in the category of affordable furniture. That is what our highlight is. 

Again, brand-new sofas are a bit on the expensive side. So, it’s better to buy a used one. You can keep the budget for buying a sofa around $350.  At Inhabitr, you will get cheap furniture of top-notch quality. 

Our goal is to help you live a flexible life.

  1. Dining Set – $200

Who does not love to eat pizzas on the couch? But, having a dining table with chairs is essential. A small dining table with four dining chairs will do the job. 

If you want to include a few bar stools to the collection too, you can set the overall budget to $200. This will enable you to purchase affordable furniture at lower prices.

  1. Dresser or Chest – $150

You will certainly need some space to store all your clothes. A dresser or chest is apt for this purpose. Once again, it’s best to buy a used piece rather than a brand-new one. You can set the budget limit for this to around $150-200.

If you can expand your budget slightly, Inhabitr offers an exquisite range of dressers & chests. Again, if you think it’s going out of your budget, you can always rent it! There’s no other attractive option than that of rental furniture, that too discount furniture, especially with our sale going on! The idea of rental furniture could not have looked better.

  1. Coffee Table & Floor Lamp – $100

Your living room might look a bit empty if there’s only a sofa placed in it. Since we are looking at affordable furniture, a coffee table that costs around $50 dollars is great. Contemporary or rustic, the style depends on you & your budget. You can easily add a floor lamp to the collection that will perfectly brighten up your room!

There you go. We have given you a list of 5 essentials that will make your apartment your home. You will have to spend a bit more on the basics such as kitchenware, bathroom essentials, etc. But these above 5 pieces of furniture are necessary for comfortable living.
