Ask yourself a question that many college students face: Furnished or unfurnished housing?
What you want to do during college life is to eat, study, live, relax and get good grades. You deserve a spacious, comfortable, affordable, and safe student housing to call your own and focus on college, NOT be hassled transporting lots of things. You need to look for off-campus housing which provides easy move in – with just clothes, books and a laptop. Once you’re in your new place, you need no distractions, but close connectivity to campus and fun centres. Today’s college students and their parents are demanding more out of college housing.
Furnished apartments appeal to students, who do not want the hassles of adding to their burden as it makes little sense. Moving is a very stressful time in a student’s life. This makes a furnished apartment seem very appealing. Furnished apartments usually come equipped with a comfortable bed for every student, a study desk and chair and bathroom necessities.
Let’s be honest. Coming to a new city and enrolling in a new college has enough of its own stresses, without adding in the hassle of moving. In addition, it can sometimes be difficult to figure out what you have to bring with you and what you would rather leave at home. When you choose a fully-furnished housing this problem is eliminated. You also don’t have to worry about moving or buying furniture or even mattresses\pillow, or linen or forced to ask all your friends and family members for help in either moving this cumbersome furniture or shopping for basics. Moving will be a walk-in with minimum stuff.
You are likely overwhelmed or at least burdened when you get ready to attend college. Added to this educational preparation is getting your room ready. This may be the first time of living alone, exciting and no doubt stressful for sure when you think of arranging furniture, food, laundry, cleaning, potable water, power-backup and garbage disposal – an endless list. If you choose a furnished apartment for your student housing, at least you won’t have to worry about practical furnishings to other solutions for house-management.
Another advantage to acquiring a furnished place is the fact that you won’t have to buy furniture. When you choose an unfurnished apartment, it is your job to purchase all the furniture you need. The very basics are bed, chair and study table. That can not only get expensive, but it’s time-consuming and another hassle you just don’t need at this point of time. You have come to a new city to study – so all you have to do is show up and start living in a fully furnished housing.
When you move into your first place, you probably haven’t determined your own individual style. However, when you move into a furnished apartment, the pressure associated with purchasing decor items is eliminated. Of course, you can still add your own style and flair through furnishings, such as rugs, throw pillows and art to inject life and your personal style. And best of all, you can do this on a budget.
Essentials needed in a room
Study area – When you move into a new place and begin classes, you will need a study area. Some student housing offer students study rooms for this. In your room, you should set up a space dedicated to study. This can be a corner of your room or the end of your couch. What you actually need is something to write on and space to spread out your books. You almost certainly will need a desk for laptops.
Storage space- Another element that is must in the list of student housing room essentials is storage space. This can mean a set of shelves that will house college reference books or stackable storage boxes where you can store out-of-season clothing.
Individual touches – Although you are now on your own but you might still enjoy having some mementoes around that remind you of home. A furnished apartment is pretty, but it probably does not feel like your home. Therefore, it’s nice to incorporate individual touches to your new space. One way to do this is to bring your own comforter and throw pillows for your bedroom or buy a new rug that reflects your style preferences.
