Kim Dingwall starts Furniture Rental Business

April 9, 2014 (Ottawa, Ontario) – A ground breaking service is now available for home sellers, real estate agents and home stagers in the National Capital Region real estate market. Owner Kim Dingwall operates Get ReFurnished to meet the growing demand for more selection of furnishings for home staging.

Online ordering at, including the use by mobile devices, makes it fast and easy to select and rent furniture. Technical zoom control for photos allows close up examination of furnishings to find the perfect details being sought. Inventory selection is available at many price points and furniture styles for wide range of clientele preferences. A secure online payment system makes it more convenient for shopping. Clients can pick up items at our Kanata warehouse or they can be delivered. Get ReFurnished also has home staging services available for clients that want professional assistance.

“The furniture rental business has not grown with the home staging business in Ottawa. Having access to this affordable service allows stagers, real estate agents and home sellers to compete in the market using popular staging strategies while keeping their costs down by renting instead of buying the furniture they need,” said Kim Dingwall, Owner.

It doesn’t make financial sense to be buying furnishings when you can rent them. Nor does it make financial sense to have your house sit empty. Staging homes for sale is a growing industry in Ottawa and it is getting a big push thanks to Get ReFurnished! Home sellers wanting to improve the look of their house to attract buyers now have an affordable and easy method to be competitive with other staged homes.

The response from Stagers and Real Estate Agents in the Capital and nearby regions has been excellent, they are excited to have this new service available to them to help get properties staged, on the market and sold faster.

Get ReFurnished Incorporated is Ottawa’s online destination to rent quality furnishings for staging homes for sale. Furnishings are selected by Ottawa’s best home stagers. GRI is owned and operated by one of Ottawa’s leading real estate stagers Kim Dingwall of Refined Rooms who is ISRP and RESAPRO™ certified as well as Vice President of the Ottawa Chapter of RESA (Real Estate Staging Association). Get Ready. Get ReFurnished. Get Ahead.
