Unlike residents in other American cities, some Gotham locals are on the move –– splitting their time between New York City and other parts of the world. Some people even make sure to spend just under six months in NYC every year, to avoid paying New York State taxes. For others, short-term lease agreements, buildings going co-op, roommates moving out, and rising rent prices make it difficult to stay in one apartment for more than a couple of years.
Here’s something to bear in mind: Every time you move to a different apartment in this city, you’re inclined to empty your bank account. Aside from having to fork over the rent and deposit money for your new place before you even receive the deposit back from your last apartment, there’s the cost of the move itself.
What’s more, you might discover that the furniture in your previous apartment doesn’t fit the measurements of your new place (narrow doorways and stairwells are evil in apartment buildings) – and purchasing new, quality furniture can costs thousands of dollars. Fortunately, there’s an option for New Yorkers who live as part-time residents or those whose living arrangements change.
Once you’re ready to furnish (or refurnish) your humble abode, consider a subscription to Furnishare – an on-demand furniture delivery service that costs as little as $50/month for any three pieces. From Ikea to Bloomingdale’s, Furnishare has a wide range of brands available to view on its online catalogue, allowing you to mix and match. You can even swap out different pieces if you feel the urge to redo your interior décor, or if you want more up-to-date styles.
The best part? Whether you need to move again, or if you’re going to be away from NYC for an extended period of time, Furnishare will come and pick up the furniture for free. It’s a fantastic service for anyone wanting a comfortable place to live, but without the commitment and investment of pricey furniture.
In a city filled with nonstop stress and excitement, every New York local needs a comfortable, relaxing home environment. Choosing the right furnishings for a New York City apartment is not only aesthetically pleasing, but creates an oasis where you can rest and recoup.
