Room in halls

When you move into your student accommodation you might come to consider it as a second home. Considering this, you might want to jazz it up a bit to suit your style.

For me, the most important thing in my room is my bed. It can really tie a room together. When deciding what type of bedding to bring, try to pick colours that blend well and easily with each other. A more monochromatic decor will help add some big personality to your room, giving the illusion of a larger space. This will help your room look more aesthetically pleasing. I suggest picking lighter and softer colors as they help brighten a room more. Add some pillows and a throw blanket if you want.

When packing things to help decorate your room, try thinking multi-functional, compact and mobile! This will make it simpler for you when you are moving in and out, and make everyday living very easy. Try arranging your things vertically to free up more floor space and use as much of the room as possible.

Try to keep your work space clean and organised. Your designated work area reflects your mind state. A cluttered room is a cluttered mind as they say. My top tip is to organise your pens and pencils in cup holder next to your neatly lined books – that way you can always find them!
