On this page you will find tips for furnishing your home.

Borrowing money for furnishings

Most municipalities allow you to get a loan to furnish your first home. This is called a furnishing loan. The amount of the furnishing loan varies by municipality.

Please note: this is a loan. It is not a gift. Eventually, the money you borrow for your furnishings will need to be paid back to the municipality.

Thrift stores

At a thrift store, you can buy a lot of furniture and other items for your home for very little money. A thrift store is a store that sells donated used items. Usually things from a thrift store are a lot cheaper than at other stores.
