How to make your Student accommodation more homely

Although the quality and elegance of student accommodation has greatly improved, there is still nothing better than customising your living space. These suggestions will give you some creative ideas that will allow you to make your room seem like a home away from home.

1) Use fairy light strings to decorate your student accommodation

These rays of sunshine can go everywhere, including your headboard, bookcases, and window ledges.

Thankfully, they are now quite reasonably priced, and you can buy fairy lights from shops like Wilkos and Tesco, making it easier and less expensive than ever to decorate your student accommodation.

2) Use plants to enhance your student accommodation

The natural feel of leaves offers a beautiful aesthetic element to your space that always works with your other furniture and decorations. The world is your oyster regarding plants and bushes. You can get a wide variety in your local Tesco, Sainsbury’s, or even Aldi.

Additionally, plants can purify the air in your space. Which is beneficial, particularly when the flu is running about in the winter. 

3) Decorate the walls with photographs 

One of the best ways to make a space seem like home is to surround yourself with things that serve as a reminder of the people you love. Even if your accommodation prohibits using blutack or less harmful substitutes, most of them will at least provide you with a noticeboard where you can display pictures (as well as your timetable, if you must).

4) Buy more furniture

Many students think it is absurd to buy their own furniture. Especially since their housing already supplies them with everything they could possibly need. Why would you invest money in something you don’t really need?

However, as we’ve already mentioned, you can find many used items online. Having one or two pieces of your own furniture can help give your room some personality. It gives you something you can modify or upcycle to your heart’s content without worrying about losing your security deposit.

5) Add a Rug 

You can make even the most drab student accommodation look better with a beautiful rug; they don’t have to be pricey. The range at Argos and Amazon is always excellent and ideal for students’ budgets. However, we advise you to choose one that will likely hold up for at least a few years.

A top-quality, fluffy rug will offer your feet that additional comfort boost in the winter, even if your student accommodation is heated. It will also make your room appear cosier after a long day at uni or out on the town.

As you can see, it’s not difficult to make your student accommodation feel more homely using simple and inexpensive materials. Hopefully, this article has given you some inspiration for those final touches!
