Simplified Home Makeover – Furniture Fiasco SOLVED!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of CORT. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you ever thought of renting furniture instead of buying them for your home? I understand some of you may wonder who would want to rent their furniture out. In fact, it would never have crossed my mind to rent anything out back in the day. Plus, I never knew it was even possible. Even if I did, I would think and assume it’s only “rich-people” stuff. But I couldn’t be more wrong. Believe it or not, there’s a HUGE NEED for renting out furniture.

Here’s the thing … maybe you’re the type of person who loves to redecorate regularly. Or you can be a student who needs to move temporarily during school days. Maybe your family has to move or relocate every few years because of work. Well, I personally have experienced the latter part. As a military family, renting furniture is a deal breaker for us. If you’re unfamiliar how the military life works … you can be living in one country for about a year, maybe two, starting to get comfortable with life THEN suddenly have to relocate because your spouse is getting stationed somewhere else. This has happened to us one too many times for me to count. Obviously, we have to move out so bringing everything is such a hassle.

Finally, my dream of keeping a beautiful well-decorated home is made possible by renting out furniture. With CORT Furniture, shoppers can rent any furniture, decorate a room with their own style or preference, or even avail room packages that are furnished by the professionals. CORT is convenient and cost-effective and could be your perfect flexible alternative to suit your needs.

The lowdown … you have the freedom to rent the furniture by piece or rent it by set. The renting time frame is flexible too – from one month to one year, your choice! Well, at least for me, renting by piece has proven to be an excellent idea because I love to decorate and switch things up.

5 things you can rent for your home instead of buying

1. Bed
After a long day, we all turn in to our beds. We deserve a comfortable spot fit for a king. Making a hard day’s work worth it by having something beautiful to come to. But of course, depending on the style and features, it can be costly too. If you prefer not to ship or deal with the hassle of bringing one home from a store, then renting is the most efficient choice.

2. Cabinets and Storage
After welcoming our son, we had an urgent need to add new storage and cabinets to our home. We don’t really have much room for a permanent one, and it’s a hassle to bring one home by ourselves. You can guess the answer at this point … we opted for renting one out from CORT Furniture as well. This way helps us switch out the furniture to something bigger, or smaller when the need arises.

3. Dining Table and Chairs
As part of our constant relocation and moved, we have our fair share of experience being into different types of apartment, home, and even a townhome. We quickly realized a dilemma after moving to the latter, and that is the lack of space for having a full dining and living room set. This was a significant burden for us given that we moved our furniture with us. We had to get rid of our dining set.
Problem solved temporarily. But it is expensive to buy. So what comes next? Do we just ignore the fact that we don’t have a proper dining area? Of course not. Whatever the reason may be, it can be accommodated by renting. If you’re in a bind like us, wouldn’t you like to have your food eaten at a presentable table and chair instead? My thoughts exactly!

4. Sofa Set or Love Seat
Sofa sets are what welcomes you as soon as you come home. It is the place of relaxation, and a spot for cozying up with your favorite show, game, and even family. This is also where you welcome family as well as friends. From gathering to day to day activities. Why settle for less when you can have your dream living room set up without spending an arm and a leg?

5. Pillows and Home Decor
Using the same old pillows as well as home decor can be boring, I get it. I’ve been there too. That is one of the reasons why I tend to upgrade regularly. Because I wanted to have something presentable and new every now and then. Except, as my husband puts it “how many throw pillows and accents is enough?” …. I used to shrug it off. But he sure does make a point. Why overspend when you can rent? Easily freshen up your home with a décor that will suit your style, preference and even the seasonal change!

Time and time again, I will praise and swear by CORT Furniture, for the apparent reason that their services indeed works wonders for us. It solves a problem. It delivers a solution. Oh and if ever you don’t feel like renting anymore … they also have an option for you to purchase curated pieces from their showroom at a much more friendlier price than MSRP that you see in most stores.

Giving your OLD and even NEW home doesn’t need to be tedious. It shouldn’t also be a hassle. Give CORT a try, and I promise … you’ll love them just as much as we do! Also, Check out the CORT Blog for inspiration.

    I do like the idea of renting your furniture if you have plans to change it often. It’s also great for rental property.

  • Sincerely Miss J

    The concept is so simple and works but I have heard of a company renting out furniture. Such a good idea.

  • Monidipa Dutta

    Simple as well as sophisticated. I love anything that is simply pretty.

  • Yeah Lifestyle

    I have never considered renting furnitures, but love to change my style every year, so this has opened my eyes to new possibilities of having new resigns at a cheaper cost

  • Rosey

    Simple, elegant and stylish That’s the style I like for my home too. I like that you can purchase pieces from them directly..

  • Stacie

    I love a simple home look. It keeps the clutter to a minimum, and it’s a relaxing feel.

  • Anita Mckaney

    I never you that you could rent an entire house of furniture! For some reason I always thought of only sofas, lol. You did a great job decorating. Very cozy and homy.

  • Alexandra

    Love the decor in these photos – just gorgeous! I have so much inspiration for my apartment now 🙂

  • leah

    oh I love the dark wood matched with the crisp colors!

    CORT furniture is a convenient and affordable way to update your living space! And you have so many options so if you like to change up your decor like I do, this is a great option!

  • Debra Schroeder

    Love the lilac sofa and chair. I rented furniture when I was in college. It was totally worth it since I knew I was only going to live in my apartment for 9 months.

  • Marysa

    I love those little pops of color you have everywhere! I love your decor.. simple and beautiful.

  • Surekha Busa

    I don’t know that was possible! For someone who’s been moving a quite few times, that’s very practical. It was a really a hassle when you move place to place and have to deal with the big furniture chaos.

  • Jessi Joachim

    I never would have thought about renting as opposed to buying for furniture! This is a really cool idea. I think it would be really perfect for college students too!

  • Tiffany Barry

    Such a great idea! If you like to redecorate often or if you move and don’t want to have the hassle of bringing along furniture, I could definitely see this being a great way to do that.

  • Shannon gurnee

    I love the way the home makeover looks. I think simplified is definitely a great route to go!

  • Shar

    I had no idea you could rent furniture! I get bored of my decorations really fast so this would be perfect for me 🙂

  • Jasmine Hewitt

    i dont know how i feel about renting stuff like that. i think i’d rather just buy it and be done

  • Suzanne

    This is such a lovely makeover babe! I can’t decide which piece I like more. That love seat looks to be so cozy. xo, Suzanne

  • Lara | Grits in the city

    Interesting idea! Love the idea that you can go with something larger that you need now and you aren’t committed if you need to downsize to something smaller later. Didn’t realize you could even rent pillows. That’s pretty cool.

  • Emily

    I am really loving that coffee table! Its retro but modern and I think that it fits into that space really perfectly!

  • Lydia SMITh

    What a nice concept from CORT furniture. I’m always on the move too as a nomad and I think I should consider this next year. Renting beds and cots for babies would be really good for parents on a low budget. Thanks for sharing.

  • Kara

    I love the idea of renting furniture, I don’t think they do that over here though

  • Kate

    I had never even thought to consider renting furniture outside of renting tables or chairs for an event. However, I can see so many uses for this including my sister who married a Navy pilot. I definitely see why you recommend it for military families. Or I would imagine for staging houses for sale too.

  • Preet

    Oh wow, this looks so wonderful. I need this at home, so we can start our new year with a style at home.

  • Cecilia Harvard

    I have never considered renting furniture and love the idea but don’t know if it’s the smartest with two small boys lol

  • Elle (CleverlyChanging)

    I can imagine myself renting furniture for our entertainment room until we settle on just the right look for the space. My husband and I have two different visions for the room, so this could be a great way to make us both happy.

  • David Elliott

    I would never have thought of renting furniture. If it is something you can afford to do, it does seem like a nice and creative way to go. I would have to check them out more but looks awesome.

  • ohmummymia

    I think I could be to stressed about renting not buying because I have a toddler and he is destroying most of the things 😛 but it’s a really good idea

  • Bindu Thomas

    I love decorating house as simple as possible. These are some good ideas. I love it very much. Thanks for sharing.

  • Tara Pittman

    My husband rented furniture when he relocated to a new job and I stayed behind to sell the house. He needed furniture for a couple of months so it was the way to go.

  • Amber Myers

    Yes, I’ve always liked CORT. They have such wonderful furniture. We have rented before when our stuff took forever to arrive.

  • Alvern @ Success Unscrambled

    I guess it is important to know what options are available that is a great alternative to buy especially if as a family you are like digital nomads. It makes more sense to rent rather than to buy furniture.

  • Tina

    Renting good furniture is a trend these days. I have bought mine though. But i would like to rent some furniture for the kids room because i know i have to change those in a few years.

  • Nabanita Dhar

    This is a concept which is becoming very popular especially among bachelors and it makes a lot of sense as well.

  • A Infinite Step

    the pics are soooooo stunning! I feel like revamping my whole house now! I have a fascination for interesting pillows and throws. They add such character to any place and can totally change the feel of a room

  • dani

    You have so much talent as a stylist! I love how you mix different textures and colours. It all really works so well!

  • Jessi Joachim

    I have been wanting to do some home makeover stuff of my own. I am decluttering and want a really simple clean look. This is beautiful and very similar to the aesthetic I am going for as well.

  • MomMy Sigrid

    I would rather buy my own bed though. I am very particular with my mattress, so I want my very own.

  • What Corinne Did

    Love this post! i didnt know you could rent your furniture but it is such a great idea! and so convenient!

  • Thuy Linh

    I typically get furniture from IKEA and have my boyfriend put it together lol. I never thought or renting furniture before, but I’m really intrigued

  • Sandra

    The idea of renting instead of buying is really a good idea, though that’s not applicable in the PH,… I hope that idea comes sooner or later for us! These home decors are perfect for new homes! I’d check out their site for more!

  • David Elliott

    I am really bad with pillows and getting the kind of design I would want for a room. Can never make it look quite right. You have some great ideas here though. Could be very helpful. That’s great that Cort can help you get the right vision of your room down and decorate it the way you want it to be decorated.

  • Pradnya

    Have looked at many rental furniture places before but haven’t found designs I like. Will definitely check Cort out. But I am not sure they are present in my country.

  • Bindu Thomas

    Your home makeover looks absolutely stunning. I love your bedroom more. It looks like a heaven. Thanks for the pictures.

  • Traci Frett

    I’ve never thought of it this! I would be too nervous to rent because I have 2 big dogs at home and 2 toddlers. Lol. I would be freaking out all day that something was going to get ruined!


    It’s the first time I know that there’s a company that rent our furniture! It’s such a great idea! I loved it

  • Lellalee

    I love the idea of renting furniture! Pure genius. The items look absolutely stunning too xxx
