A moment that marks a before and after in young people lives is the one they have to change from high school to University. The most difficult in this point is leaving the comfort of home to start a new life in a student flat somewhere away from home. So, any help is needed and IKEA Canada is the perfect partner to make it easy.
In their relentless pursuit of innovative solutions, the famous furniture store has unveiled a truly ingenious concept: the “University Starter Kit”. This comprehensive ensemble brings together everything necessary for a college student’s kitchen, encompassing an array of kitchenware, cookware and even soap dispensers.
Ikea’s University Starter Kit includes everything you need
Ikea hasn’t left anything out of the list with the stuff needed in a new live start. This complete list of items included ANNONS 5-piece cookware set, glass/stainless steel, frying pan and stainless steel/nonstick coating, a food container —set of 17 transparent/green—, FÄRGRIK mug, stoneware white, 25 clm, ISTAD resealable bag, patterned/black yellow and GNARP 3-piece kitchen utensil set, black.
The list goes on much more stuff for a student kitchen like the OFTAST plate, white, side plate, white and bowl. New university student will also find a RINNIG dish brush, a MOPSIG 16 piece cutlery set —more than enough for a student flat—, POKAL glass, the ORDNING utensil holder, stainless steel.
You may think that you are ready
Well, now youcan think you have everything you need to go to your new place. If you think you are ready, that is because you probably have never lived alone before and you don’t know how many items a house needs. To make sure you feel at home, Ikea has also included:
- SVAMPIG sponge, gray-white
- HEAT trivet, cork, 19 cm
- TACKAN soap dispenser, white
- FRAKTA bag, large, blue, 55x37x35 cm/71 l
- SAMLA box, transparent, 56x39x28 cm/45 l
- SAMLA lid for box, 45/65 L, transparent
- APTITLIG chopping board, bamboo, 24×15 cm
University is already expensive enough
For those curious about the individual costs of these items, the cumulative tally reaches CA$126.32 —approximately $93—. However, IKEA offers an enticing opportunity to acquire the entire assortment for a mere CA$99 —about $73—.
These meticulously curated kits are a testament to IKEA’s thoughtful approach, designed to simplify the lives of both students embarking on dorm life and their budget-conscious parents. This limited-time offer, crafted by the Swedish retail giant, signifies a seamless transition for students, enabling them to effortlessly prepare meals in their new dormitory settings.
Furthermore, it provides parents with significant savings and the convenience of avoiding the hassle of scouring IKEA’s expansive aisles for each individual item.
Unfortunately, the company has not extended this promotion to the United States. However, a silver lining for American students and parents is the option to print out the kit’s checklist and assemble the items individually, even though it won’t include the special bundle discount. While it may require a bit more effort, it undoubtedly streamlines the shopping process. Best of luck to all those embarking on this exciting academic journey.
