Hey guys, lately you have all been loving my university posts as much as I’ve loved writing them. With university fast approaching I have received many requests for different university based posts. One of the most popular, being ways to decorate and make your uni room more homely.
Here are a few ways you can create a home from home in your uni room.
|This is the worst quality ever but this is the only picture i could find off my first uni room.|
In most uni rooms, you will have a noticeboard and whilst this would be useful to pin important letters and notices on, it’s also perfect to display some cute pictures from home. Photographs are a great way to keep memories alive and make your room feel that little bit more personal. And obviously you could also buy some cute frames to display some photographs on your desk.
(This is not an AD) One website I have been loving for printing off pictures is Snapfish, if you sign up and download the app you are given 50 free prints every month and all you have to do is pay for postage. The prints are a super great quality and arrive super quickly in perfect condition.
Now not everyone will receive letters, notes or cards from home before they head off to university, but for those who do, displaying them on your notice board of on your desks during the first few months is a lovely reminder that people back home are supporting you and they are only a phone call away.
Not every student accommodation will allow these but battery powered fairy lights are a perfect way to make your room that bit more cosy. They can also be super cheap, available in places like primark and Wilkos. I couldn’t leave home without them.
Fluffy pillows and throws.
Now getting used to a new bed isn’t easy. Let’s be honest no matter where we go and how comfy the bed is, it’s just not the same to our one back at home. One way I made my bed feel more cosy last year was cute bedding and different shaped pillows, with a fluffy throw. The throws in primark at super cheap and so so soft, If I haven’t already tried to persuade you to buy one then I highly recommend you do. Other places with good quality cheap affordable homeware is H&M home, Wilkos and ASDA.
Flowers are such a small detail but they can make a room feel that much more homely. Obviously we are students and if you’re anything like me, I never remember to water plants or change the water in flowers. A great way to combat this is to buy some fake flowers or even a little succulent plant, they require little to no water. And just add a little bit of colour and life to your room.
Unfortunately candels and oil burners are not allowed in pretty much all student accommodations. However that doesn’t mean you can’t have lovely smelling rooms. Plug in air freshers and reed diffusers are perfect additions, which stop your room from smelling if you’ve been stupid enough to leave a mouldy mug in your room for weeks.
For some reason, I always find having my favourite books displayed on a shelf in my room makes the room feel more ME. It can also remind you of home comforts and remind you of the things you used to love. It’s also nice to pick up a book every now and then and give yourself some down time.
Side note: Your uni room is yours. As long as you don’t damage or mark anything you are free to make it your own. Obviously you can’t use paint or hang nails up. But a good way to hang things up is using command hooks.
I hope this gives you a few ideas on how you can jazz it up a little bit. I’d love to see how you decorate your rooms once you move in so please share that with me on any of my social media sites.
Thank you for reading and keep suggesting any posts you’d like to see. Also if you would be interested in seeing any YouTube videos once I get that up and running I would love to hear your suggestions.
I post at least once a week, all things lifestyle and beauty.
