The Cutest Accessories You Need To Make Your Uni Room Feel More Like Home
It’s time to get your inner interior designer on.
Moving to uni means leaving your cosy bedroom at home and experiencing the joys of shared student accommodation. While living in halls or private housing with flatmates is all part of the fun of uni, it’s true that some uni accommodation is very questionable looking and probably very different to the room you’re used to.
We’re sure after a few weeks you’ll forget you’re even sleeping somewhere new, but if you need some serious inspo of how to switch up your room, not to worry as we’ve got just the things you need to help put your personal touch on your new bedroom. We bet you’ll love it so much it will feel just like home in no time.
It can be really hard to force yourself to focus on work if you’re sat at a boring and uninspiring desk all day.
Kit yourself out with some cute stationery so that when you are doing work you not only have everything you need to hand but also feel motivated to get it done. Diaries with stickers also make planning way more fun and are a great way to get organised.
Candles not only make great decorations but also can transform the whole atmosphere of the room. Lighting a candle after a long day is the ultimate way to relax and unwind and they look great on shelves or lined on desks; even if you’re not actually going to light them.
This may sound weird but coloured tape is a great temporary decoration.
Chances are if you’re living in halls or have a landlord they’re not going to like it if you cover the walls in posters that leave marks, but sticky tape is a really cool and creative way to liven up a room without leaving a mess behind. Simply use it to line the edges of your desk, noticeboard, and other furniture.
AND EVERYTHING ELSE YOU COULD NEED
The lighting in your room will probably be quite standard so getting a different coloured desk lamp like this rainbow one is a great way to add some colour and personality to the room. You’ll probably learn that having a cup of tea at every available opportunity is an essential part of uni culture, so having a range of fun mugs is essential for when you’re skipping lectures and curled up in bed.
Finally, a polaroid camera means that you can capture your uni memories and hang them up on your noticeboard for everyone else to see.
