With the beginning of the school year just around the corner, many students will be moving into a new college apartment. Most first year students are young adults moving into their own place for the first time. They are excited and thrilled to be out on their own and embarking on their studies. It’s an exciting time of life!
Of course, a good percentage of this year’s new college students will move into dorm rooms. Most dorm rooms are supplied to students with all the furniture and accessories needed. A large portion of students however, will not be able to procure an on campus dormitory room, and will need to rent an apartment. And, with renting an apartment there is the question of how best to furnish the apartment. Furnishing an apartment rented for a school year is a little different than furnishing other sorts of apartments, because for one thing, it is a temporary situation. Budgets are often tight, but the general needs are the same.
Another consideration is that apart from the usual basic Furniture Items needed for any home, such as comfortable seating like a couch or easy chair, a bed, and a place to store clothing, a college apartment also needs a computer desk and good lighting. This is essential, considering the time and energy a student will be devoting to their studies.
A student may be bringing their own computer with them to college, or investing in a new one that has the right configuration for their studies. Most students will opt for a laptop model, as opposed to a desktop, since a Laptop allows a student to move from class to home and other key locations for studies.
With the constraints of budget and the particular needs of a student apartment, one option that works out well is rent to own furniture. The ability to completely furnish the apartment, including a desk and even a computer system if needed, and have it all wrapped up in one convenient payment is a huge advantage. And, renting makes sense, it’s a smart choice for anyone, especially a student!
