Mixing & Matching Rental Furniture

Home staged with rental furniture

When it comes to furnishing a space, many people go for new furniture, but there’s been a growing trend for renting furniture instead. Not only is rental furniture budget-friendly, but it provides you with flexibility and convenience. Some people may worry that rented furniture won’t create a cohesive look or style. With the right techniques, mixing and matching rental furniture can create a beautiful, cohesive space.


Start with a plan

Before deciding what furniture you’ll need to rent, plan on how you’ll want to use your space. Consider the purpose of the room, the color palette, and the overall feel you’d like to achieve. Having a plan will guide your rental furniture choices and ensure that they balance each other and the overall design of the space.


Choose a focal point

A focal point catches your eye and sets the vibe for the entire room. Whether it’s a piece of artwork, a statement piece of furniture, or a bold color choice, choose rental furniture pieces that support and enhance it. For example, if you want your vibrant sofa to take centre stage (like our Astrid Sofa), we have a wide selection of home accessories like carpets, artwork, or mirrors to complement your focal point.


Mix and match textures and materials

Mixing and matching different textures and materials can add visual appeal and depth to a space. To illustrate try pairing a sleek, modern sofa like our Carmichael Loft Sofa with a rustic oak coffee table. Mixing different materials and textures can create a cohesive yet eclectic look.


Stick to a color palette

Choosing a color palette is key to creating a cohesive space. Select a few colors that complement each other and use them throughout the room. Rental furniture pieces should fit within your chosen color palette, whether it’s through upholstery or accent pillows. If you’re unsure about which colors to choose, consider using a color wheel to help guide your decisions.


Consider scale and proportion

When mixing and matching rental furniture, it’s important to consider the proportions of each piece. A large sofa may make a small room feel tight, while a tiny side table may look out of place next to a bulky armchair. When choosing rental furniture pieces, make sure they work well together in terms of the room’s size and proportions between other pieces.


Don’t forget about lighting

Lighting is a crucial element in any space, and it can have a big impact on the overall look and feel of a room. Consider renting table lamps (New York table lamp) or floor lamps like our (Rowan Floor Lamp) to add a touch of class and luxe to your space. Make sure the lighting you choose complements the rental furniture pieces you’ve selected.


In conclusion, mixing and matching rental furniture can create a beautiful, cohesive space with the right techniques. Start with a plan, choose a focal point, mix and match textures and materials, stick to a color palette, consider scale and proportion, and don’t forget about lighting. By following these tips, you can create a space that feels curated and personalized without breaking the bank.
