Greet your new home with an instant party

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 ceiling lamp in place yet? Great!

At the end of your first day in a new home, chances are not all light fixtures are in place. Just in case, lighting chains on a hat and coat stand will do the trick – and solve mood-setting in the process.

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.

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.
