There is so much to be excited about when you’re getting ready to go to uni. Starting a new course, making new friends and of course – decorating your new room.
With the right help, you can elevate any university bedroom (no matter how small) into a homely haven. And with IKEA’s fantastic ‘Off-to-Uni’ range, it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg either…
Pick out the perfect bedding for a mood-boosting sleep
Ask any post-grad and they can vouch for the fact that a comfy sleeping arrangement is paramount to your enjoyment of uni life. It gets busy, and you’re going to need your rest! Luckily you can kit out your bed with IKEA’S TAGGVALLMO fitted sheet, SKÖLDBLAD ‘softer pillow’ and LUDDROS mattress protector for under ten pounds. And you can add a splash of colour to whatever bedding you choose with a super soft HOLMVI throw, available in three tasteful colours.
Create the cosiest quarters with this tasteful home decor
It might not be the penthouse suit at the Ritz. But with a couple of the right pieces from IKEA’s home decor range, your uni room will transform into a super snug space that you’re glad to come back to at the end of a long day. Breathe a bit of life into your room with some (wonderfully low maintenance) artificial plants from the FEJKA range. You can fill empty surfaces with dainty potted plants, or adorn your walls with effortlessly elegant hanging plants. And why not create a gorgeous aroma with a cute ADLAD scented candle or two?
Set up your super-productive work space
Tidy desk, tidy mind – that’s how the saying goes. And you can create the ultimate high-achievers work space with a few nifty gadgets. Keep your desk wires to a minimum with a LIVBOJ wireless charger, and save yourself from squinting with a SVALLET work lamp, for only ten pounds. And with TJENA magazine files, you can be the embodiment of organisation.
Cook meals for your mates with these kitchenware essentials
Good food is the way to a friend’s heart. And with these IKEA kitchenware essentials you can be the host (or hostess) with the mostest. Put a smile on your flatmates faces and cook up a storm with the KAVALKAD frying pan and ANNONS pot and lid. And if you’re catering for the masses, the MIXTUR oven dish is perfect for serving up a hearty lasagne.
