How Furniture Companies Can Benefit UK Landlords

Furnishing a property isn’t only time consuming and difficult, it can also be incredibly expensive. The likelihood is that you’re a businessperson first and foremost, not an interior designer. Making crucial decisions like what position a sofa faces or what colour paint on the walls would make the room more spacious are pretty low on your list of priorities, especially if you are dealing with multiple properties.

Furnishing properties can be a pain.

A well furnished property will make a huge difference when selling or renting. It’s the first impression that counts, and potential buyers or tenants tend to react better to a well furnished space than an empty property. It communicates the potential of the property, and a cleverly arranged space filled with high quality furnishings will make much more of an impact than an unfurnished property. For potential buyers, they can get a feel for how they would arrange the space to fit their needs and for the tenant, it’s the offer of a tenancy with stylish and comfortable furnishings.

Whether it’s for home staging or as a furnishing solution for tenants, there are a number of solutions that can benefit landlords, saving them time, money and the headache of furnishing their own property. Whether it’s the whole property or a few choice rooms, multiple lots or a single show home, furniture companies offer a range of flexible, customisable services that take the hassle out of furnishings.

Landlord furniture packages are pre-compiled furniture collections, generally put together by interior design professionals. Packages are fully customisable and expandable, from a single room to a fully furnished property. Because furniture companies buy in bulk, they can pass the costs on, so the packages are generally more cost effective than purchasing the same furniture through the traditional avenues. Furniture packages are particularly useful for landlords and developers, allowing them to furnish multiple identical plots with the same package.

Furniture hire is a flexible and cost effective solution to furnishing a property in the short term. Particularly useful for home staging, and similarly for rentals, rental contracts are flexible and allow for short term or long term lease of stylish, comfortable (and perhaps more importantly, fully compliable with fire regulations) furniture. Various tenants have various needs; some will have their own furniture, some will have none, and furniture hire gives landlords the ability to react to this without the additional costs of storage and removal that would come if they furnished the property themselves. It’s also an incredibly quick process, and furniture can be delivered and installed within 48 hours of the contract being signed, meaning time and money are saved.

Furniture companies can offer you furniture that maximises the potential of interiors, using high quality furniture that won’t break the bank. Flexible and scalable, there’s a solution out there that will benefit any landlord.
