10 furniture essentials for apartment living from Homemakers Furniture

A Fun Rug

They enhance home décor, invite guests in and protect your floor. So, you spilled coffee while groggily getting ready and now have an unsightly stain on your floor. Guess what can hide that imperfection while adding trendy flair? You guessed it: a stylish rug! Or maybe you love anything soft and cozy but are less than impressed with your uncarpeted space. Add a large area rug! Problem solved. Not quite sure how to position all your furniture around your rug? Check out our helpful rug styling infographic for inspiration.

Large-Scale Mirrors

Nothing opens up a small space easier than an elegant leaner mirror. If you’re tired of your home décor, try infusing reflective surfaces like a mirrored accent cabinet to instantly create a refreshed, spacious look and feel.

Sleek Statement Tables

Sure, you could opt for the same predictable coffee table that sits in your dentist’s waiting room…or you could wow your guests with a statement piece that’s as functional as it is stylish. This sleek and boxy grey wash table adds instant modern flair and ample usable surface space. You can also create industrial appeal with a mixed-media occasional tables, like this angular, metal-framed Zodiac coffee table.

A Unique Accent Chair

The only thing better than a cozy seat is an incredibly stylish, cozy seat. A chevron-printed blue and white chair could be the perfect infusion of personality for your space. Or maybe you’ll fall in love with one of our contemporary accent chairs. Finding a unique seat that reflects your style can transform your rental’s look and feel.

Multi-Functional Storage Furniture

With versatile storage furniture, you can shut down clutter before it starts. Create an open, roomy living area by setting designated spots for everything. Throw blankets go in the storage box bench, books are stowed in your lift-top ottoman and your extra clothes stay tucked in a drawer bed frame. We’re all about space-maximizing furniture!

A Stylish Bed

That bland eggshell wall behind your bed is not exactly setting the mood for a refreshing bedroom retreat. But, don’t be discouraged! Here’s a solution that doesn’t involve breaking the no paint policy. The perfect addition to revitalize your bedroom is a bedframe or headboard that makes a statement. A bold, contemporary panel bed will revitalize any dull sleeping space. Or try this sleek, button-tufted bed to inspire fresh style in your waking and sleeping space.

A Versatile Sleeper Sofa

You love hosting friends and family, but aren’t interested in paying extra monthly rent for a guest bedroom. Luckily, you can turn your living room into an impromptu sleeping space that beats sleeping on the couch! Well, this is technically still sleeping on the sofa, but one with a pullout, queen-sized memory foam mattress is definitely a comfort upgrade. We have a variety of sleeper sofas to create versatile, space-saving relaxation in your rental.

Cool Lighting

Don’t settle for familiar overhead lighting. Get atypical and make your space shine with snazzy table and floor lamps. Refreshing your lighting is the perfect way to add personality to your space with a comfortable price tag.

Real Patio/Balcony Furniture

Most apartments don’t come with an expansive personal oasis attached, but you can make the most of your cozy patio by choosing the perfect outdoor pieces. Spruce up your space with a soft outdoor rug or try accessorizing with string lights or an exotic outdoor floor lamp. Give your outdoor space the breath of fresh style it deserves.

An Eye-Catching Dining Set

You may not be able to alter very much in the kitchen, but you have free reign in your dining space! Feast in enticing comfort as you satisfy your appetite for a hot meal in cool style. This organically industrial dining set seamlessly blends rustic metal and wood materials for an upscale urban look and feel.
