Once you’ve chosen where to live at uni, one of your next moves is to turn your student room into your happy place! If it’s your first time living on your own, student room decoration can be one of the most exciting parts of the process, as you get to turn your space into something that reflects you and the things you love.
Your student room decoration can be an extension of your life back home, or it can be an entirely fresh look to reflect your new chapter. Either way, there are loads of ways to create the space you want quickly and on a budget.
University student room decorating ideas
While you won’t be able to do major renovations, paint walls, or make any permanent changes to the space, there are tons of ways that you can make your room your own, without having to go over your student budget.
- Photos and prints
Whether its photos of the people you love back home or imagery of your favourite art, photos and prints are one of the best ways to decorate your space and make it feel like your own.
Add a new lamp or frame your bed with fairy lights! Introducing a new light source can brighten up your space and create a more chilled, ambient atmosphere.
- Become a plant parent
Inject some life into your space with hardy plants that are simple to look after. Ferns, spider plants and succulents can be a great addition to your room.
- Creative Working Space
Your desk is where you’re going to be spending a lot of your time. Keep it tidy and fun with storage, or add a cork or whiteboard to keep track of your tasks and events coming up.
