Student Accommodation Furniture
Student accommodation furniture usually includes bedroom furniture, lounge furniture, desks, desk chairs and dining chairs and tables. As the numbers of university students has risen, so has the number and variety of student accommodation buildings. Well-designed furniture has become correspondingly more important, to attract students. Despite this, the robustness of student accommodation furniture remains vital.
Layouts differ considerably; some student accommodation projects have a large communal area, others have smaller grouping of bedrooms with smaller communal areas; some have no communal areas at all.
Bedroom furniture for student accommodation usually includes a student desk chair, anything from a stool to a swivel chair, as well as at least one occasional chair. Our usual request is for a hard-wearing chair that doesn’t have a large space footprint.
Dining areas can look like the interior of a modern cafe or can have picnic tables; the variety is large; table heights can vary, with some using poseur height tables, with stools. For work areas, tables may also require plug sockets and internal cabling for laptops. Lounge areas are equally diverse.
As the student accommodation market becomes ever more competitive, designers are also seeking to incorporate fun elements into communal spaces and bespoke table tennis tables are in more demand than ever.
