Going off to university is a big moment in many ways – moving to your first own home may be just one of them. Celebrate the occasion as soon as you can, surrounded by moving boxes, an improvised party venue – and new friends.
"No lights on the ceiling? Don't worry!
On the first day of moving into the new home, the lights may not be in place.
To hang the string of lights chain on the coat rack as a stylish light rack, and the space will be cozier instantly.
Adjustable height, adjustable function
An ironing board is in place in two seconds and can be used as a table, refreshment counter, or something in-between. Simply set the height to suit chairs, bar stools, or just people standing around.
Turn up the heat
When living as a student, access to kitchen appliances can vary greatly (even after you’ve moved in). An induction hob puts your next hot meal – or a round of hot dogs for a party – mere minutes away.
“Where students live together, people moving in and out is part of everyday living – as well as somewhat rough interior styles. Pairing the two makes a great combo for an instant house-warming – speedy, simple and friendly.”
- Kristina Pospelova，IKEA interior designer
Set the buffet, round up your guests
Halls of residence make the distance to your potential guests conveniently short. Once the selection of hot dogs is plated, simply do the rounds, and you’ll have a party crowd in no time.
Time to greet the neighbourhood
With a few place mats in place for catching spills, your buffet table is set and ready. All that’s left is to let the guests fill your new home – and their stomachs.
