Furnishing Your Vancouver Rental Home with Aluminum Products

Furnishing your rental home with aluminum products.


When renting, it pays to choose the right material(s) to furnish your temporary home. The last thing you’d want to do is choose furniture that takes up a lot of space, is heavy, and is not very durable. Imagine how long, and how tiring it would take to transport this stuff to your new home, once your lease is up? That’s why choosing aluminum products and furnishings – such as storage shelves, outdoor tables and chairs, and your pots and pans  – for your rental property is a good choice. Aluminum-made products are relatively cheap, have a high strength-to-weight ratio, and are durable. They’re also corrosion resistant, which makes aluminum particularly suited for outdoor furniture and your kitchen cookware. If you’re currently renting, and looking to furnish your place, here are 3 common aluminum household products that are perfect for renters like you.


Storage shelves.


Everybody could use more storage space, especially those that are renting. Indeed, your current property may not be big enough to fit all your things, and you may be saving for your own (larger) home in the meantime. If you’re thinking of buying some cheap wooden shelves to help free up some more space, stop. Buy some aluminum shelves instead. Aluminum shelves are strong, lightweight, and by using Qubelok – a do-it-yourself aluminum building system – you can build your own storage shelves in no time at all. For renters, these types of shelves are especially useful: you can easily build your own shelves (and other types of furniture) with this system and then take them apart when it’s time to move onto your next property. The Aluminum Trade Centre – an aluminum suppliers in Melbourne – stock the Qubelok system. Ask around your local area for other suppliers in your area.


Outdoor furniture.


Aluminum is corrosion resistant. This makes it ideal for your outdoor furniture. Unlike other materials such as steel and wood, aluminum can withstand the elements without showing much worse for wear. It’s also easy to clean and maintain – especially when it’s been powder coated, which means that you’ll be able to use the same furniture when you finally have your own place. Whether you want a nice patio set outside to relax with your family, or for entertaining guests, choosing aluminum tables and chairs are an affordable and durable option. Again, as aluminum is lightweight, transporting it to your new home will be as easy as pie!



Choosing cookware made out of aluminum is a great choice when renting. Believe me: you’ll thank yourself that you chose aluminum when packing your stuff, as it’s lightweight and fairly strong, too. Anodized aluminum pots and pans are fast becoming a favourite amongst many cooks and householders, as they are safe (do not “leach” like traditional aluminum), easy to clean, a great heat conductor and non-stick. Just what you want in your cookware! Plus, they’re easy to clean and will last you a long time. Perfect for when you move into your new home.


If you’re currently renting and need to furnish your place with cookware, an outdoor patio set, and some storage shelves, go with aluminum. It will make your life that much easier.
