Lifestyle | How To Make The Most Of Your Uni Bedroom


lifestyle_logo

Whether you live in university halls or a house, if you’re going to enjoy your time at uni, you need to love your room. The chances are that the space is a little dull and dreary right now, but don’t let that put you off. Regardless of how small and grey the room looks, there are plenty of ways that you can bring it to life. You’ll just need to get creative and be smart about how you decorate, and you can transform your student bedroom into the ultimate retreat.  

The first thing that you need to understand when it comes to decorating a rented room is that you are limited in terms of what you can do. Painting, wallpapering, and changing the carpet are all no’s, but don’t let that put you off. Think of your uni room as a blank canvas just waiting to be brought to life with pattern and colour. It goes without saying that your bedroom should be a space that you look forward to coming home to. It should be the ultimate haven of tranquillity and calm. The space that for all intensive purposes makes you feel at home, even if you’re a long way away from your family.

Student bedrooms can be tricky to get right. The fact that you can’t make any long-term changes can make the transformation process tricky. But remember, creating a space you love is doable, you just need to think outside the box. Uni isn’t for everyone, but you can make the most of your bedroom with these tips:

Decorate your walls with photos and art

You might not be able to paint but you can decorate your walls. Print out all of your favourite photos in different sizes and on different materials. Have some on canvas, some on material and some just as pictures, and use them to jazz up your walls. (To stick them to the wall, use Blu Tack on non-damaging glue.) Using photos as decor will not only brighten up your room and personalize the space, it should also help with homesickness.

Instead of using traditional wall art, posters are ideal for decorating a uni room. They’re easy to hang, won’t damage the walls and look great. When picking posters, make sure to take your bedroom colour scheme into account – aka, the colour of your bedding. While you can buy a range of posters on the high street, the best places to get them from are online, as there’s a lot more choice. To add a little elegance to posters, pop them in a black frame.

Bring all your most important bits from home

The main thing that most students struggle with when starting uni is homesickness. To make your bedroom feel more like home, it’s crucial that all your most important bits and bobs from your room at home, come with you.

From decorations to bedding, anything that will help you to feel more at home should be packed up and taken to uni. If you don’t have the room to pack everything that you need, use a student storage company to ship your belongings, for you. If you’re going to feel at home, you need to ensure that you have lots of familiar items around you.

Make your bed perfect for lounging on

Your bed doesn’t have to just be for sleeping on, transform it into a DIY sofa by day with a few stylish cushions. Oh, and for added comfort, don’t forget to pop a throw on top of it too. You only have a small amount of private space when you’re at uni, so it’s important to make the most of it and make it as comfortable and cosy as possible.

To add style, opt for cushions and throws in a mixture of prints – mixing and matching designs can work well. Just make sure to stick to one color scheme, so that you don’t end up with a space that clashes.

Think outside the box, hang paper chains across your ceiling, pop a rug on the carpet and use fairy lights to add glamour. There are so many simple ways that you can liven up your university bedroom.
