You are soon arriving in Luxembourg and it’s stressing you out? Don’t worry, we have a solution for you: coliving. Get to know what it means before we tell you all about Furnished.lu!
you may ask, what does coliving mean exactly?
Coliving is a trend from the US which appears in the 80’s on the west coast and migrated to Europe and Asia in the late 2000’s. If you have ever watched an episode of Friends, you should actually have a good idea on how it works! We promise you, at furnished.lu it’s less dramatic 😊 (“They don’t know that we know they know we know.”)
As a young new worker, you may think living in Luxembourg is actually really expensive. That’s where the coliving is advantageous for you: you are able to split the cost of your living with others in the same situation as you!
Coliving is the concept of shared housing, with a global service of all-inclusive accommodation to residents called colivers: cleaning, maintenance, internet access, energy, insurance and so much more. It is almost like living in a hotel but you need to make your own bed, cook for yourself and sometimes be social with the people you live with.
The coliving is generally organized around places open to all like a well-equipped kitchen, relaxation areas and a private room for each tenant. Most of the time, the bathroom is also shared between the roommates.
Rent includes home insurance and the many services offered by shared housing. The advantage is also that the occupants do not suffer the constraints of the flat share such as the fights over household chores… Everyone enjoys their private space and services that make everyday life easier.
Plus, this way of living in community is a good way to fight loneliness, which an increasing number of people are suffering from in large cities and especially more after these quarantine times. In a country like Luxembourg, coliving can help people to meet various profiles of people, some similar and some different, which can be a base to create its own friendship circle later.
