As the summer comes to a close, we get to that time of year when you pack up your life and move it all to another town or city for the next 10 months. Whether heading back to uni after enjoying the summer off or are just starting out, this guide will help you with what you should take with you to make your accommodation truly feel like a home away from home.
At University, you’ll be working hard and playing harder. Whatever time in the early hours you manage to crawl into bed, be sure you’ve got pillows that will help you to fully recharge for the following day. You needn’t look much further than our Luxury Soft As Down Microfibre Pillows. Let’s hope you don’t have too many early starts as these are very persuasive at keeping you in bed with their luxurious softness. Plus, it’s easy on the wallet, so more money for books (beers).
Much like its pillow counter part, our Luxury Soft As Down Microfibre Duvet will be your best friend during your time at Uni. Available in 4.5 (summer warmth), 9 (spring/autumn warmth), and 13.5 (winter warmth) togs, you can be assured that this duvet will make bed time even more extraordinary all year round. And if you accidentally spill anything on it, just chuck it in the washing machine at 40 degrees. Easy.
Isn’t ironing great fun! I’m pretty sure your shaking your head right now. We agree with you. That’s why we’ve got Relaxed Cotton Bed Linen for you. No need to waste time ironing this after washing it. Once dry, just chuck it straight on to you bed. If that’s not tempting enough, it comes in a variety of colours, which include Plum, Blue, White and Grey. So whatever your mood, you’ve got a colour to match.
Protectors aren’t the most glamorous of bedroom purchases, but trust us, it’s worth 10x more than the small amount it costs. Protecting your mattress (and accommodation deposit) from spillages and protecting you from your mattress (remember, you probably aren’t the first person to sleep on it). Plus, you can get protection for your pillows too with our Classic Soft Touch Pillow Protectors.
When you get out of the shower, you’ll want a towel that provides you with the fluffiest of cuddles. Especially if you’ve got a housemate that insists on saving on the gas bill. Get your hands, face, arms, legs and torso on our Luxury 100% Egyptian Cotton Towels. In a range of sizes and a wide variety of colours, these aren’t just luxuriously soft to the touch, but a delight on the eye.
Quick! You’re parents have decided to pay you a spontaneous visit and your place is a bit of a tip. No worries. You can swiftly store it “tidily” away in our White Willow Storage. From laundry baskets to storage baskets, we’ve got all your storage needs covered. And if white isn’t to your taste, check out our Grey Willow Storage.
When you go to do your laundry downstairs in the communal wash room, you don’t want to risk that person you fancy across the hallway seeing your delicates. Again, we’ve got you covered with our Storage Bags. You can easily and discreetly transport you dirty washing to the washing machine.
So now we’ve covered everything from our end. You’ve got all the bedroom and bathroom essentials to make your time at University feel homely enough without the watchful eyes of Mum and Dad. And you’ve saved enough money in the process to get another bottle of wine or two for freshers week.
