One year ago, my husband and I relocated because of a work-related opportunity. Moving across the country was exciting to think about, maybe even appealing in some ways. We were leaving our Rocky Mountain home that we had established together for a few years to explore Chicago. Once we were there and settled, I knew there would be plenty to see and discover. There’s a gazillion museums, Navy Pier, Millennium Park, Wrigley Field, and Willis Tower, the list goes on. The getting “there and settled” is what boggled our mind. This wasn’t a permanent move, but we didn’t want our time away spent living like hotel guests, especially since I was pregnant! We wanted a home. Who helped us do this? CORT Furniture Rental. Our move from Colorado to Illinois needed to happen quickly. With CORT, it was no problem. We were able to choose our package online. There are so many stylish options and a variety of price points. You can “Rent By Room”, “By Piece” or choose a “Move-In Ready” option. Because we were only moving our clothes and a few other essentials, we needed EVERYTHING. And CORT can provide EVERYTHING, even things you might not think about, like toothbrush holders! The best part about my experience was the customer service. When I wanted to help decorating our space, I called their customer care team and they were able to answer all of my questions. They have home décor packages, area rugs, buffets, pillows, and throws; you name it, they have it! When we finally arrived at our Chicago apartment, received our keys, and walked in our new space, we found a home; CORT had already delivered all of the elements to make a typical apartment, spectacular.
Here are some ways to make your home even sweeter:
Even if you are only moving with a suitcase, I recommend bringing at least one picture frame with you. In the picture frame, you can store several pictures behind the current featured photo and rotate them in and out when you want to see a certain friend or family member’s face. Houseplants, whether you have a green thumb or not, make places feel more home-y. Plant-killer? Invest in a succulent or air plant 🙂 My favorite way to make my home sweet is to create memories. Invite the neighbors over for the next big game, a board game, coffee, or dinner. Having a good time will help you associate your new space with something special! Plus, you’ll be able to enjoy your time with your new friends on fabulous furniture from CORT!
