7 Things Renters Really Should Check on Their Lease
There are better ways than dumpster diving and responding to nightmarish online ads to get furniture for your new college dorm or apartment.
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.
The transition into a dorm or college apartment can be tough! Student housing units are small and students may feel cramped or uncomfortable in their new space.
Tips below help transform these small spaces from a claustrophobic cubicle into a student sanctuary.
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.
There is a bright spot in commercial real estate, and it’s streaming through floor-to-ceiling windows in office spaces around the country. From traditional businesses to tech startups, modern, open workspaces are all the rage in major metropolitan areas across the country.
As warmer weather is fast-approaching, you might start thinking about how to liven up your décor or furniture rental to welcome spring and summer. But how to do it without spending a fortune? Decorating seasonally can be a challenge, but the key is flexibility and creativity. This week at CORT Furniture Rental, we reached out to our followers and to decorating experts to find out how you stay on trend from season to season with your home décor.
Spring is here and summer is quickly on its way. In addition to getting your shorts out for the onslaught of sunshine, there’s also no better time to dive back into experimenting with food and hosting dinners. If you’re interested in entertaining this summer, don’t let your dining room dissuade you–here are some simple and quick ways to spruce it up for those afternoon brunches and dinners that go late into the night.
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.
