A house is the place where you and your family cook, laugh, relax, play and create the memories of a lifetime. And Clayton is helping many people fulfill these dreams of homeownership by providing affordable, quality homes. Once you’ve found the Clayton home of your dreams, what makes it truly your home is incorporating your personal aesthetic through accessories and furniture. However, buying and moving into a new home comes with a lot of expenses, and budgeting to furnish your space can be a challenge. That’s where CORT Furniture Outlet comes in.

What is CORT Furniture?

CORT Furniture Rental is a leading provider of transition services including residential furniture rentals for any room in the home. This includes renting out furniture to people and corporate offices short term, as well as furniture for staging model homes and movie sets. CORT Furniture Outlets sell the previously rented, high-quality furniture at a fraction of the original cost. With multiple outlet stores across the nation, this means you can furnish your new Clayton Built® home on a budget. To help you get started, we share decorating tips below, plus our favorite picks from CORT to help you save money while going big on style.

Tips for Decorating Your Living Room

The living area is often the heart of the home; it’s a place you gather with family for a movie, sit and relax with a book or enjoy a board game night. Since the living room is a high-traffic space, you want furniture that’s sturdy enough for everyday use without skimping on the appearance.


The Nielson sofa features sturdy wooden legs and a neutral upholstery color with a curved shape that fits in virtually any style home, from modern to traditional.

RX CORT-urban-link-area-rug

A large area rug will help anchor the room while adding extra comfort underfoot. It’s also a great opportunity to play with color if your other furniture is neutral. The Urban Link area rug is a great choice because it features abstract shapes and a soft blue color that adds interest without overwhelming the space.

RX CORT-hendrick-side-table

A simple yet stylish end table, like the Hendrick side table, and colorful sofa pillows will tie the entire room together.

Tips for Decorating Your Home Office

Many Clayton Built® home models have the option for an extra den or flex space you can turn into a home office, and whether you spend a lot of time in your home office or not, it should combine style with function. Think storage and organizational pieces that are as efficient as they are beautiful.

RX CORT-home-office-chair

A comfortable, stylish chair is a must-have, especially if you are working long hours. The Envoy Executive chair is both ergonomic and stylish, and works with many design types, from traditional to contemporary.

RX CORT-Colvin-desk

Next, it’s time to choose a desk. The Colvin desk features both open and concealed storage, and it’s sleek enough to fit into a small space while still providing plenty of room for essentials. The wooden table combined with metal legs gives it a rustic, industrial feel.

RX CORT-bookshelf

To make your home office efficient, storage is key. It’s also a great way to enhance the look of your home. The Hawthorn bookcase features intricate design, plenty of storage and is compact enough to fit into a small space.

Tips for Decorating Your Bedroom

In contrast to other rooms, the primary bedroom is a space you can call your own, where you escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, so the furnishings in it are just as important as furnishing any other room in your home.

RX CORT-blair-headboard

The Blair headboard will easily be the focal point of your bedroom, with its beautiful, tufted leather details. The tall headboard also draws the eye up and makes the bedroom feel larger.

RX CORT-Talia-chair

If your bedroom has the space for a reading nook, you can create a cozy spot in the corner with a chair, end table and plants. The Talia chair is comfortable, stylish and takes up minimal space.

We know buying a home comes with stress, but finding room in your budget to decorate it with stylish, high-quality furniture doesn’t have to be. With these pieces from CORT, you’ll be able to furnish every room in your home in no time.
