Did you know that Singapore is the best country for expats from East Asia? According to the most recent survey from ECA International, the city state continues to be a great place for expatriates to stay while they pursue their careers. Singapore beat out several other countries and cities like New Zealand and Bangkok precisely because of the nation’s world-class education system, cityscape and infrastructure along with its housing options.
For many expats, housing is a key aspect of their stay as it provides them with a cosy and comfortable place to return to after work. But, buying a home is out of the question for many expats especially when considering the costs associated with purchasing a home and the fact that they will only be here for a limited period. For many expats and their families, the best option is to rent a home along with the furnishings that are required. From their living rooms to the bedrooms, most furniture is usually rented.
One important area in the home which demands added devotion and care, in its set-up and arrangement, is the dining room. After all, the dining room is a place for the family to gather after an exhausting day at work or at school to share about their day. It is important to optimize the space available in the rental home whether it is a simple flip-out table that folds out when it’s time to eat or a dining table rental that helps create a cosy mealtime experience.
