We have been helping our son move into his new university accommodation and it’s going to be a shared house. He is one of the first to move in and so far, has had to sort out various problems from no hot water to a heavily lime-scaled toilet. Now with regards to the cleaning of the toilet, he’s been throwing everything that is recommended to clear it and I had some really useful tips to pass on how to clear it so fingers crossed on this. Regarding the hot water, he’s had to ring up the letting agency to get that sorted but it took a few days, luckily it was fixed while he was away for a few days so he’s come back to hot water!
We have also been helping him make his rented home feel a bit homelier and his, everyone loves a home to feel like their own. So, over the bank holiday, we are going up armed with his curtains for his room, bread crock and his special cushion and a few other supplies. Honestly, I feel like I’m running two houses at the minute but he’s doing a good job I think. It is a lot for a young person (teenager) to move into their first home even though it is rented. And they can get overwhelmed especially when you go through the basics of their own home with them, it really is so much to take in.
We are taking up his own office chair as he can't get on with the one supplied in his room (so we will just store that one in the garage). If you are looking for an office chair that will look stylish and functional in any setting then you could look at somewhere like Ikea or even Next.I think it is important not to write off shops like this as they produce very study furniture.
Also, worth looking if you need any sort of office furniture to look at Ikea ,Next etc as it will last through the stages of study and beyond. I have a neighbour who went to Ikea to kit out his home office as he runs a business from home. So whether you’re need office furniture for home study or work it it well worth a look.
