Pull Out Sofa

One of the best items worth splurging on in your apartment is a comfortable sofa with a pull out bed. For those weekends where you just want to binge-watch the latest release on Netflix or you’re having a movie night with some friends, you don’t want to sit on a lumpy sofa handed down to you by your parents’ neighbor.

If buying a new sofa, you should consider getting one with a pull out bed. This is great if you enjoy hosting friends at your apartment. They will feel so much more comfortable sleeping on a mattress compared to sofa cushions.

Comfortable Mattress and Sheets

There is no better feeling than waking up refreshed from a good night’s sleep. One of the key factors of getting great sleep is a comfortable mattress with high-quality sheets. While shopping around for mattresses may be intimidating, especially when you look at the price tag, it is an important item worth splurging on.

A comfortable mattress isn’t complete without sheets that feel like they belong in a 4-star hotel. When you slide into a well-made bed with high thread count sheets, you’ll fall asleep instantly due to just how comfortable they are.

Small Kitchen Appliances

It’s easy to pick up the cheapest coffee maker or toaster when you are trying to build your kitchen. However, you may want to consider splurging on these smaller kitchen appliances. When you spend a little extra money on these appliances, they are less likely to break and you won’t have to replace them every few months. When you buy appliances like an Instant Pot or a rice cooker, you are also more likely to cook at home rather than go out because they make it so much more convenient.

Smart Home Assistant

Bring your apartment into the future with smart home assistant technology. Consider splurging on a voice-activated Amazon Echo, Apple Home, or Google Home Assistant. You can instantly turn your home into a smart home where you can control music, lighting, and electronics with just your voice. A smart home assistant is the technology you didn’t know you needed. We guarantee that once you splurge on these items, you won’t be able to remember life before having them.

Cordless Vacuum

Let’s face it, nobody enjoys cleaning their apartment, but it’s something that has to be done. Why not make it easier by splurging on a cordless vacuum? Long gone are the days of pulling it out of the closet, untangling the cord, and being restricted by the outlets that seem so inconveniently placed throughout the apartment. Believe it or not, you won’t mind pulling out the vacuum anymore the next time you spill something or break a glass in the kitchen.

Smart TV

Cable is slowly disappearing. We have moved to streaming movies and shows with Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and more. So, why not splurge a bit and get yourself a smart tv? You won’t have to hook up your computer to the HDMI port anymore or rely solely on what is playing on television. Just connect to your wifi and you’ll have the world at your fingertips.

Desk Chair

Whether you spend hours studying at your desk, work from home, or simply enjoy browsing the web, a comfortable desk chair is an item worth splurging on. A majority of our jobs involve sitting in front of a computer or desk, so take the leap and buy yourself a desk chair that won’t cause back problems late into the day. Hours will go by and you won’t even notice because of just how comfortable you feel.

Splurge-Worthy Items for Your Apartment

In order to make your apartment truly feel like home, there are some items worth splurging on, such as a pull-out couch, comfortable mattress, smart home assistants and televisions, kitchen appliances, and cleaning supplies. Not only will you feel more like an adult, but you won’t have to keep replacing cheap items. With CORT Furniture Rental, you can have these items worth splurging on delivered right to your apartment and won’t have to worry about moving that new comfortable pull-out couch in and out of your apartment.
