When my husband and I were building our house, there were certain features that we knew we wanted. We wanted to live on a cul-de-sac, have a large back yard for the kids to play in, and a nice deck that we could sit on and relax in the evenings. For the home design, we knew that all of the kids would have their own bedrooms and that we wanted a formal living room and dining room as well as a more causal family room.
But beyond that, we weren’t really certain what we needed. A playroom would be great when the kids were little, but we weren’t sure what we’d do with it once they were older. We also weren’t sure if we wanted a guest bedroom. Our families preferred to stay in hotels when they visited, so a guest bedroom wasn’t really necessary at the time. My husband had his own office in town and I was a stay-at-home mom, so a home office didn’t really fit our needs either.
In the end, we decided to add a large bonus room to the house. When the kids were young, we could use it as a playroom. Once they get older and prefer to hang out in their own rooms, we could turn the bonus room into a guest room. And now that I own my own business, we’re considering using it as a home office as well.
It might seem like a huge undertaking to change a room like that, but it’s actually not. Because with CORT Furniture Rental, we can easily change the room to fit our needs. Our family has changed over the last 10 years and our house has had to change with us.
With CORT, changing rooms couldn’t be easier or more convenient. The furniture is there when you need it and gone when you’re ready to move on to something different. We can furnish an amazing teen hangout in the bonus room:
Then change the furniture to set up a guest bedroom for family and friends:
And change again to a home office so I can work from home:
Whatever we need, we can get it from CORT!
If we’re not sure how long we’ll need something, CORT has flexible furniture lease term options to allow us to keep everything as long – or as short – as we need it.
Whether you want to use a bonus room three different ways like we do or whether you have other furnishing needs, CORT has what you’re looking for. Furnish your short-term apartment, turn your temporary work address into a home away from home, or rent furniture to start over in a new city with everything you need to set up house.
