Back to School Solutions: College Edition
As summer draws to an end and the new school year creeps closer, endless to-do lists can be found in the home of every student. Whether your college student is headed to a dorm room or their very first apartment, IKEA has the solutions to all their storage, study, and space problems.
In most dorm rooms, closet space is quite limited, especially when that space has to be spit with a new roommate. The Algot frame provides extra closet space with its rod, for hanging clothes, and mesh drawers for additional storage, and it doesn’t take up a whole lot of room because of its sleek, upright design. Turning unused space into storage is essential when living in small space, and you can do just that by using a Vardo underbed storage box to store shoes, extra blankets or even bathroom accessories.
Even the best first apartments tend to be lacking in square footage, so having a study space that is both compact and functional is important. A compact desk, like the Micke desk is less than two feet wide, but still has enough space to get some serious work done, and it has a drawer that runs the full width of the desk. While many professors use online materials these days, book and college still go hand in hand. The tall, slender Billy bookcase provides tons of storage without taking up much space at all, in fact is only sticks out 11” from the wall.
Finding pieces that have more than one use, just might be the smartest way to save space and money as you send your student off to expand their horizons. The Brimnes headboard doubles as a compact shelving unit perfect for books, tablets, or decorative pieces from home. A sleeper sofa is a no brainer in small spaces and it can be used as your student’s main bed or as their couch. IKEA’s Balkarp sleeper sofa is compact and looks stylish enough to have in the main living area. It is extremely easy to transform and is a surefire way to ensure you have a place to sleep if you ever happen to be in the neighborhood.
You, and your student, have enough to worry about as the new school year approaches. iFurniture will gladly take some of that weight, and stress, off your shoulders by picking up, delivering and assembling all the IKEA furniture your student needs to make their new space feel like home.
