The advantages of furnished flatshares for young workers

Flatsharing is becoming more and more popular in some of the biggest European cities, this is due to the many benefits not just for students, but also for young workers. Shared accommodation solutions present both economic and social advantages. As the leader in furnished flatshares in France for students and young workers, Chez Nestor offers fully equipped and furnished rooms in the heart of the biggest French cities. Learn more about the benefits of this way of life for young workers in this blog.


Flatshares for young workers : an ever evolving phenomenon


Flatsharing involves renting an accommodation with other tenants. It can be a flat or a house, furnished or not, where several people live together. All the tenants have to sign a contract with the landlord before integrating the flatshare. This lease can be individual or common. In all the cases, the co-tenants within the same flatshare have the same rights and duties towards the landlord.

At Chez Nestor, we work on an individual lease basis, which means that each tenant is responsible of their own rent and bills only. Therefore, their individual rent is not affected in the event of the departure of a roommate, i.e you do not have to personally look for people to replace you. Flat sharing solution also offers great housing at a reduced cost, thus resulting in it being the housing of choice amongst students, but also increasingly amongst young workers. Indeed, the barometer of flatsharing in the first quarter of 2017 revealed that 45% of flatshares are occupied by workers. For young professionals, shared accommodation is also a way to integrate into a new environment socially, whilst saving money at the same time.


Benefits of flatsharing for young workers


Economic advantages of flatshares for young workers

The ability to save money on not only rental costs but also setting up contracts, and bills, are some of the major advantages of flat sharing. Shared accommodation is the solution to avoid paying astronomical rental prices for the small choice of housing on offer in metropolitan areas. As it enables you to benefit from both affordable housing in the heart of urban centres or near a metro station. The average price of shared accommodation in big cities such as Paris is between 800€ in 2018, compared to 1500 euros for a traditional rental. Moreover, flatshares are almost always fully furnished and equipped, making them a lot easier to move into for the tenants. Roommates do not have to buy furniture or equipment, they just need to pop down their suitcases to enjoy their new place. In addition, bills, invoices, rental expenses, are divided between the co-tenants, which makes flat sharing an even cheaper solution.

What is more, at Chez Nestor, we take charge of the contracts (water, gas, electricity, internet, insurance…), so that you can avoid all that lengthy administrative processes!

Flatshares for young workers: Social advantages

The advantages of furnished flatshares for young workers are not only economic. Shared accommodation also offers the opportunity to meet people, live in a community and exchange and share experiences with others. Indeed, the roommates can be friends before living together, but sometimes you can start the journey as complete strangers. In the era of networking, co-renting for young workers is also a way to expand their circle of contacts and integrate easily.

Similarly, co-renting offers young workers the opportunity to settle in urban centres, which are the main sources of employment and socio-professional opportunities. Thanks to its more flexible conditions, flatsharing simplifies moving around from one place to the next should you even be offered a job elsewhere. Finally, it is important to know that as a tenant in France, you are entitled to CAF housing assistance (financial aid from the government).

Our new line offers large common areas, high-quality facilities and of course shared rent in individual lease : discover everything there is to know on our latest launch in this article.


Premium flatshares = moments spent together


One of the biggest advantages of flatsharing is spending time with other people: sharing meals, watching sports, playing video games, having friends over, learning new languages with your roommates from across the globe! Living in flatshares means you can socialise with your flatmates or chill out in your room when you need some me-time. It’s more than just a financial benefit, sharing accommodation is a good way to relate to others and open up. Usually favoured for short-term housing, furnished flatshare is the accommodation solution of choice by students moving away for studies,  but also by expats and young workers. What could be better when arriving in a new city, than meeting friends within your own home?

So that you can have these great moments together, Chez Nestor has designed large common areas within their new premium fully equipped flatshares: a large living room / dining room with furniture thought for your greatest comfort (large sofa, armchairs, flat screen TV…)


Premium flatshares = even more comfort and equipment


If all our flatshares are renovated, furnished and equipped, this new range of flats offers you a luxurious experience of a furnished flatshare.

#1 Ultra-equipped common areas

We have taken the premium to the next level by offering you top-of-the-range appliances and trendy decoration.

In the kitchen, you’ll find high end appliances: dishwasher, washing machine, kitchen utensils, there is now a tumble dryer and a coffee machine. The living room is also at the forefront of luxury as tenants will be able to enjoy:

 

  • A dining area big enough for flatmates and guest!
  • A large and very comfortable sofa and armchairs to share moments with friends.
  • Storage furniture
  • An ultra HD TV
  • A sound system

#2 Comfortable bedrooms

  • When you share a flat, your bedroom should be your own private space, so it is important that you feel comfortable there. For even greater comfort, Chez Nestor relies on premium decoration and equipment:

    • A king size bed (160x200cm) for more space with a custom headboard.
    • A memory foam mattress for a good night’s sleep.
    • Bedding worthy of a 4* hotel for an ever softer bed. (High end selection of bedding)  
    • A large dressing room to store all your clothes and accessories.

Premium flatshares = high end renovations


In order to offer the best to our tenants, our teams renovate the apartments to the finest detail. First, all the rooms in the apartment that do not meet the standards are completely redone. Then, each room of the apartment is studied and decorated by our design team. They choose furniture, layout and colours carefully. The decoration is well crafted, without being too overpowering to allow our tenants to also add their own personal touches too. Each room has its own identity and atmosphere. The colour of paint is chosen to match the stylish interior decor, so that all elements of your premium flatshare works in harmony.

The icing on the cake: for our premium flatshares, we only choose apartments with “charming” features to add even more character. For example, our first premium flatshare, located in the 10th arrondissement of Paris, a few metres from the “Jacques Bonsergent” metro station (line 5), has a long balcony overlooking the Parisian rooftops. Inside you’ll find beautiful ceiling features and a pretty fireplace for added style.

How to make the most of your apartment space

Your apartment is a little small but you don’t intend on moving? Don’t worry: here’s some tips to help you optimize your apartment space. Whether you decide to fully renovate or you simply want to re-decorate, Chez Nestor’s experts in renovated and furnished shared apartments have some top advice to help you make the most of your interior, whilst improving your comfort.

Chez Nestor’s quality and design experts rethink, optimize and reinvent the spaces inside our flatshares every day. Indeed, all our shared accommodations are completely renovated and decorated to provide the best levels of comfort for our tenants. Here are our specialists’ tips on how to reproduce their work in your own home:


Optimize space with intelligent storage


If you live in a studio, you may not have enough space to store your things. This results in a disorderly space or an accumulation of objects that makes your small space look even smaller. To break out of this vicious cycle, you can opt for a functional and practical layout. Select storage spaces that will allow you to make the most of every corner of your home. Place high shelves on your walls or swap your large cupboards for an integrated sliding storage space, which can easily be fitted with drawers, boxes and folding rods. In the bathroom, the under basin units can be used to provide additional storage space for clean towels or cosmetics.


Decorate to make the room look bigger


If you’re not a natural handyman, or you want to avoid undertaking too much work in your rented accommodation, then you can choose the decoration and an adapted layout to make your rooms look bigger! Place wall mirrors facing the windows to increase the brightness and give an impression of greater volume. For paints, choose light shades such as white or beige. You can paint the skirting boards too to give the impression of higher ceilings.


Redistribution of space


Renovating your home is another way to gain space, especially if you take the time to rethink the organization of the rooms. A diagnosis will help you evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your home before a renovation. For example, if your kitchen takes up a lot of space leaving you with a little living room, you can call in a professional to remove the walls for an open plan living-kitchen space. Is your family getting bigger or do you have relatives coming to visit? Creating a mezzanine to add a bed is an excellent alternative! You can also transform certain zones by giving them a new functionality. For example, your corridor can be turned into a study, or you can turn an alcove into a desk space. You can do the work yourself, but it is often advisable to use professionals for certain projects. It is even possible to obtain quick and free advice thanks to online work-estimation platforms. “Renovation Man”, for example, provides free and detailed estimates to help you plan the costs of your projects.


Folding furniture: the multifunctional storage solution


Renovating or changing your furniture is another way to save space. In a studio, the installation of a wall bed or sofa bed is a wise choice that will allow you to modify the functionality of the area: living room during the day and bedroom at night. Foldable tables and stackable chairs are ideal for entertaining your friends and will be forgotten once the party is over.

Chez Nestor’s shared apartments are completely renovated, furnished and decorated for your comfort! Compare hundreds of offers, in the heart of the largest cities in France and Spain, and book the room of your dreams in just 10 minutes on our secure site.
