For a comfortable three-bedroom apartment in a decent location, expats can expect to pay between 500 and 2000 KWD . One-bedroom apartments start at 500 KWD . Rental prices have been swiftly increasing in recent years, however. Single houses or villas can cost up to 2,500 KWD and more, depending on size and degree of luxury. Many employers provide a certain housing allowance for expatriate employees.
For an already furnished home, expats should calculate around 20% to 30% more than the figures quoted above. However, if you do choose to rent an unfurnished place, buying furniture in Kuwait is generally not too expensive. Also, there is always the chance to acquire some household goods from expats who are leaving Kuwait.
