Furniture Whether you’re a landlord looking to furnish a property without the commitment or are a tenant only staying in Dubai for a few months, avoid splashing out on top-of-the-line furniture that you’ll only have to sell soon by opting for rental pieces instead. Parasol Furniture offers both short and long-term furniture leasing, with items including TVs, refrigerators, sofas and beds, right down to linen and kitchenware. www.parasolfurniture.me.
Pets Okay, so ‘rental’ is perhaps not an accurate or ethical description of short-term adoption, but volunteering to foster one of the city’s many homeless cats or dogs is a great way to help out organisations such as The Animal Project, Feline Friends and K9 Friends if you aren’t able to commit to a forever home. www.friendsofanimalsdxb.com, www.felinefriendsdubai.com, www.k9friends.com.
