Benefits of Getting a Furnished Apartment in Jakarta
There are two types of apartments in terms of the furnishing of the room, the first one is an unfurnished apartment and the second one is a furnished apartment. Just like the name, unfurnished apartment means that when you are getting an apartment, there will be no furniture provided in the apartment. Thus, you are free to fill in the room with any furniture that you like, whether to buy new furniture or bring them from your old home.
There are two types of furnished apartments which are a fully-furnished apartment and a semi-furnished apartment. For a semi-furnished apartment, you may expect to get an apartment filled with bigger pieces of furniture. While for the fully-furnished one, it will be occupied with the bigger furniture as well as the smaller ones. When you choose to live in a fully-furnished apartment, the place will be provided with some basic furniture such as a bed, a desk, basic kitchen appliances, bathroom necessities, and living room necessities. In other words, if you are getting a furnished apartment, you can move straight to the apartment with your belongings and get settled. Here are other reasons why you should get a furnished apartment!

If you are getting a furnished apartment, you will pay more for the furniture existed in the room, but you don’t need to spend more money to use the moving service from the moving company. While paying approximately the same amount of money as buying the furniture on your own, getting a furnished apartment will cost less cause you don’t need to pay extra cost for the furniture to be delivered to the apartment. Thus, you can use the remaining money to decorate your room or to buy essential things needed to get settled at your new home.

3. Suitable for a Short-term Lease
If you are moving to a new place for a short time such as less than a year, purchasing new furniture will give you a hassle. Getting new furniture is not just a matter of the functionality of the furniture, but the design and concept of the furniture need to be matched with the concept of the living place, therefore, it will elicit an aesthetically-pleasing ambiance for the place. If you plan to live in a new place only for a short time, we suggest you get a furnished apartment, because the furnishings that you get for your new apartment might not necessarily fit with the concept of your future apartment where you move out to. Aside from the concept of the room, moving lots of furniture will give a burden in terms of time, energy, and costs.
4. Easy Mobility
One of the benefits of getting a furnished apartment is that you can easily move to another place if you are bored with the current living place. Not only because you are bored, if you feel like the facilities and the location of the apartment do not satisfy your needs, you can effortlessly move to another place. It will not give you a hard time to move in and move out of the apartments because you don’t need to bring much stuff. It is not a burden because you don’t need to set anything and just simply bring your daily necessities to the apartment which will serve your time and energy.
5. Decorate your apartment!
Some of you might think that moving in a furnished apartment would limit yourself to getting the interior design that you wanted. Actually, you can still decorate the apartment all you like! You could buy other furnished things to put around the house like a rug or lamp, or you could even buy sofa covers and curtains if you’re bored of its color.
