Renting furniture is great if you are renovating your home, or can’t make up your mind what furniture to buy – yet! If you’re an expat, you might recognise this routine: move into a new house; buy furniture; then pack, sell or give pieces away, and move along to another country. Furniture rental can really make life simpler… it also means less waste, so it’s better for the environment! Rope in one of these furniture hire companies to help you achieve your dream look, without a fuss or a huge budget.
WTP The Furniture Company
WTP The Furniture Company carries a mix of styles, from classic to contemporary – or, for something easier on the wallet, you can head to The Outlet, WTP’s budget store-within-a-store, whose offerings have been recently expanded.
Choose to lease just one item or furniture for all rooms. Lease periods range from 12 to 36 months, or you can opt for short-term one-month rentals that can be renewed monthly. You’ll also have access to warranty and maintenance services. If you have something specific in mind, the team can customise the colour, fabric and wood-finishing of your furniture.
Tips from WTP
- “If you’re not thinking of buying a piece after leasing, take the chance to try out different or unconventional styles. If you are going to buy, get advice on how the furniture will fit in your current and future home, both from a design and size perspective.”
- “Take the measurements for the furniture you’re considering and mark those measurements off on the floor using tape. This will help you imagine the right size for a piece when choosing furniture.”
This furniture rental provider has a cool website that lets you choose furniture by product, room, brand and period of time. Rental periods range from just a single day up to a few years. There are also package solutions for those who don’t want to spend too much time choosing the pieces themselves and who prefer a turnkey solution.
Flexibility is extremely important these days. With Flexisnug, there’s no penalty for changing the terms of your lease – for example, shortening the rental period. There’s also no penalty for damage resulting from wear and tear. Plus, you can buy the pieces at any time, and all payments already made will be deducted from retail price.
Sustainability is the primary reason for this new concept. All the products on offer can be easily repaired, maintained and touched up. This means they can be rented to different consumers for many years and still be as good as new every time. There’s no veneer that will need to be disposed after a few rentals!
Tips from Flexisnug
- Ensure the affordable prices displayed do not hide additional charges such as installation or damages. Our costs can be kept low because of the synergy of our two companies.. Soul & Tables (retail) and Flexisnug (rental). We have a single showroom, sales staff, IT system, inventory, delivery team, warehouse and workshop.
- Seeing the products in situ (at our showroom) can help you imagine how they’d look in your home.
