Make yourself feel more at home in your new room at university by putting your own personal touch on it. Here are some ideas on how to make your room feel more like you, they're all super easy!
It will instantly make your room feel like yours, and more like home. Bringing photos of your family, friends, pets or loved ones will brighten up your room. Why not get some string and small pegs and pin them to your wall to make it even more decorative.
2. Fairy lights
Everyone loves fairy lights, they'll brighten up your room in no time at all! Place them around your noticeboard or around your bed and you'll be feeling cosier in an instant.
3. Use your noticeboard
Most uni rooms come with a noticeboard so pin up your happy memories to make the room your own, from event tickets, festival lanyards and motivational quotes, if it brings a smile to your face - pin it.
It's a well-known fact that plants make you happier and have a positive impact on your mental wellbeing, so they're the perfect addition to your uni room. Why not bring yourself a cactus to sit on your desk, they're super low maintenance and easy to keep alive.
Event posters, movies, films, bands, they're all great to stick on your wall and will add a bit of personality to the space.
6. Bright cushions or rugs
Before you arrive, why not go shopping for some bright decorations for your room. Cushions and rugs are a great way to add a bit of colour and you'll be thankful for them when it comes to all those movie nights in bed.
7. Create a good study space
It's a good idea to create an aesthetic study space in your room so you feel more motivated when it comes to sitting down to work. Keeping it nice and organised doesn't have to be expensive either, you can create desk files out of old cereal boxes!
8. Battery tea lights
They're safe and cosy so you won't risk setting off any fire alarms in halls and annoying all your new neighbours. You can even out them in old glass jars to make them look better and dot them around your room to give that cosy glow.
