The average human spends roughly 25 years sleeping. This arguably makes your room the most important part of your home. Whether you want to get it staged for a speedy home sale or are simply looking to get it spruced up in time for holiday company, renting furniture helps it come together in no time.
Below are some furniture rental basics to help you quickly master the master bedroom without breaking the bank.
1. Start with the bed frame
The focal point of any bedroom is the bed, naturally. Begin by deciding on a style that best represents your personality. For instance, an antique looking canopy bed conveys a completely different message from a sleek platform bed. Having trouble deciding? Temporary furniture rental means you can try on different styles until you’re ready to commit.
Placement is also important. Keep the frame floated at least 24 inches away from the wall. Otherwise your co-sleepers will have trouble getting in and making the bed will be a constant struggle. Just make sure to rent a quality mattress and, if applicable, box springs, because beautiful bedding should also be fully functional.
2. Have plenty of seating and storage
Designate spaces separate from the bed in which you can have a conversation, check email or put on your shoes. The extra seating can take the form of an upholstered armchair in the corner, bench at the end of your bed or an oversized ottoman in a quiet reading nook. This helps you utilize the space more fully, creating an all-inclusive setup.
Next, give your closet a break and stock up on storage. Rent a dresser to cover the length of an oversized wall or find a chest to cap the end of your bed. Vanities and small writing desks are also great if you have extra room.
3. Anchor the room with an area rug
Once you know your rented furniture layout, it’s time to bring all the pieces together. A rug is the most stylish way to warm cold floors and makes for a cozy addition to any relaxing abode. Try placing the rug at the foot of your bed so that it’s anchored by at least one large piece. If you have lots of extra space, you can save money by layering a decorative carpet over a larger natural fiber rug. When picking a pattern, match the style to your surrounding décor for a cohesive look.
4. Adorn the walls with art
Bare walls aren’t contemporary, they’re just plain sad. Even minimalists understand the importance of good art. Still, artwork can be expensive. Renting art is a great workaround. It allows you to get a feel for your individual tastes and helps set the tone for your future investment. Hang wherever you have ample wall space. Bonus points if it’s behind your chest of drawers or headboard!
5. Add mirrors to enlarge the space
Mirrors easily open up a constricted floor plan. They’ll also make your décor look doubly impressive and can be easily be added to a variety of surfaces. Whether you elect for a sizeable standing mirror or choose to rent a mirrored wardrobe, just make sure your room has some reflective agents to open and illuminate the space.
In short, any room that you’re going to spend a third of your life in deserves some extra attention. With short-term rental furniture, the formula is easy to follow and your digs will take instantly on new life.
