Spring Cleaning Time is Here
The time has come! Spring is nearly upon us and that means it’s time to go through our homes and refresh our lives. This certainly applies with furniture, electronics, and appliances as well. We tend to cling on to the large object sin our homes like sofas and ovens because they’re big purchases and can’t be replaced on the fly. This is the time to change that.
Your parents may have instilled the mantra “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” throughout your childhood. It means that if your oven still heats up and you can still sit on your sofa, they don’t need to be replaced. This isn’t always the case though. We at Buddy’s Home Furnishings believe that quality home furnishings should be available to everyone, regardless of budget. That’s why we offer super affordable rent to own furniture, appliances, and electronics from name brands you love like Ashley Furniture, Kenmore, Samsung, and more.
Instead of holding onto large home furnishings past their prime, we recommend to consider replacing items that match the following descriptions.
- It’s perpetually dirty
If your couch seems dingy no matter how often you vacuum and steam clean it, it’s probably time for it to go. There comes a certain point where your piece of furniture has absorbed so much from everyday use that there’s no way to get it clean like it once was.
- It only works for certain things
If your oven is okay for heating up french fries but it burns every cake you make, it’s no longer serving you well. Any appliance or electronic will eventually stop working as it once did. Ovens especially start to heat unevenly as they age which can lead to under or overcooked food.
- It often requires repairs
Patching up your laptop computer over and over again just doesn’t make financial sense. It seems like the more practical option at the time as one repair will likely cost less than a new laptop. But when it requires repairs more than once, the bills add up and you still have an old, finicky piece of equipment.
- It gobbles up electricity
Even if it was perfectly acceptable energy-consumption-wise when you first bought it, energy efficiency has come a long way in recent years. If you’re saddled to a refrigerator that drives your electricity bill up every month, you’ll end up spending more than if you had upgraded.
- You don’t use it if you have another option
No matter what it is, from a range to a loveseat and everything in between, if you find yourself trying to avoid using it, it’s time to go. Your home should be the most comfortable place for you in the world. Having it filled with furniture, appliances, and electronics that you don’t want to use makes that impossible. Don’t let clunky old furniture take up space in your home that you don’t even use anymore.
As springtime comes and the weather warms, take stock of what’s in your home and what needs to be upgraded. At Buddy’s Home Furnishings, we’ve got a huge selection of rent to own furniture, appliances, and electronics that suit every style and every budget.
