Moving Season: Perfect Time for Change

Summers are traditionally the busiest times for landlords, as most leases tend to end between May and September. If you are moving this summer, it's a good idea to take a look at what you have, what you want to keep, and what you need to replace. Here are three pieces of furniture to consider replacing on your next move.

1. Bedding
Sheets and pillow cases are often ignored when they are in serious need of being replaced. If you start to notice any small tears, thinness in the fabric, or even unsightly stains, it is time to chuck out the old, and get some new sheets! Moving time is perfect for grabbing new sets, as you can get rid of your old sheets before you move and not have to carry any extra boxes to your new apartment.

2. Rugs
We all have that rug that we love to death, but sometimes you need to step back and take a look at what you're walking on. See the fraying edges? The stains? If so, it's time to get new rugs. Don't toss an old, unseemly rug in your new home or apartment, instead decorate in style with a fresh look!

3. Chairs
Do you ever find yourself in a chair that constantly squeaks, is fading, or has cracks in the wood? Moving time is perfect for replacing these, as the chairs might not even survive the trip in the moving truck. Brand new chairs will not only offer better (and quieter) comfort, but they will also give you a touch of style in your living room, kitchen, or dining room.
