How to Make Your Studio Feel Like Home

December 18, 2017

Dear students, today we want to tell you more about accommodation in Paris, and how we can manage to decorate a studio like a real home in your country of origin.


In France, you have 2 rental types:

  • non-furnished / « non meublé/vide » : minimum 3 years contract

  • furnished / « meublé » : minimum 1 year contract


Because most of the time their duration of stay in France is less than 3 years, international students choose furnished apartments; that’s why we will focus on this type.


The French Law defines what the apartment owner has to provide to you in terms of accommodation:

  • Bedding including duvet or blanket

  • Device for concealing windows in rooms intended for use as a bedroom

  • Hotplates

  • Oven or microwave oven

  • Refrigerator

  • Dishes

  • Utensils for kitchen

  • Table and seats

  • Storage shelves

  • Lightings

  • Housekeeping equipment adapted to the characteristics of the accommodation


However, sometimes students don’t feel happy about the furniture provided by the apartment owner. And if your apartment owner doesn’t want to change his furniture just for you, you’re stuck.


So here is a great solution we found out for you!




How? To go through an online used furniture sale platform, such as Les Cartons. In fact, this startup matches and allows people (who is about to move out or move in) to sell and buy their own furniture very easily!


The concept is simple:


  • The person who moves out can post ONE offer on the platform for ALL the furniture she wants to sell. They created a very smart & simple way to publish your post: you just need to take pictures of your apartment and write notes on it for each piece of furniture you want to sell.


  • The person who moves in can buy furniture at a fair price. It is fast, flexible, and reliable. Thanks to the platform interface, you will be able to get all the furniture you need from one single seller.


So, you want to create your own layout and decoration to finally feel home? It’s never too late! Have a look on Les Cartons website, we’re sure you will find nice furniture at an affordable price. 😉
