College offers students many first time opportunities—the first time moving away from home, the first time facing new and unknown situations and often and for many, the first time living with a roommate. Moving in with a roommate can present many unique challenges, including combining personal décor styles to create a comfortable home for all.
For first-year students, moving out of the nest and into a college living environment can be overwhelming thanks to the stress of living on a budget, making new friends, and furnishing your first place. CORT offers several customized student furniture rental packages geared specifically toward students with special, discounted pricing with a valid student ID card, so you can have all the comforts of home while away at school.
Spending time with family doesn’t have to be just during the holiday season. Homes today are multi-functional and are designed to provide a less fussy, more relaxed lifestyle so families can all be in the same space doing different activities. For example, while Mom is in the kitchen fixing dinner, Dad can be sitting at the table reading the newspaper and the kids in the living room playing video games on the big screen TV.
There’s so much to love and appreciate when the calendar turns to a new season, especially as the weather cools down and we approach the holiday season. The fall greets us with an array of wonderful spice colors that brings us back to a different time, a time when life was much simpler, less complicated… like the 1950s.
When it finally comes time to pick and choose the right furniture, many homeowners and apartment renters will be faced with the daunting task of not only streamlining their style, but also accommodating their furry friends. It is possible to have animals without living like an animal!
Young adults going off to college for the first time are often excited about starting the next chapter of their life. However, once the boxes are unpacked and the pictures are hung on the wall, homesickness can settle in and have you missing many of your favorite things from home, especially home-cooked meals.
Are you trying to decide if you should stick it out in your apartment until summer rolls around? This could be a huge mistake. Most people move between the months of May and September. If you’re apartment hunting during the winter months you can actually save on your moving costs and find a better deal on your new place.
It has been a particularly brutal winter in many parts of the country. Even in the comfort of a warm apartment in the company of family and friends, winter brings about unique challenges – dealing with being cooped up inside, staying exercise-inspired, worrying about the heating bill, and staying cold- or flu- free.
You can pull out all the stops to search for the best décor and artwork to don your walls or spend hours choosing the right rental furniture and deciding how to position it comfortably. But without the proper lighting it could all just go to waste.
Are you making the move to join the more than 40 percent of the nation’s workforce who work from home? Well, then it is time to clean out the clutter and begin designing your new home office. Unlike a traditional office environment which can be sterile and boring, look to put your own personality into your work space.
