You've just moved in, unpacked all your things, yet something's still missing. Student halls can often feel like a blank canvas, and it can be hard to decide what to buy and how to decorate them. That's why we've come up with these top five tips to help you turn your halls into a home! 

 

1. Jazz up the joint with some fairy lights. Decorating your room doesn’t have to be expensive and fairy lights are an item which definitely shouldn’t break the bank (you can even get them for £1!). You’ll be amazed at how some simple lighting adjustments can turn your uni room from cold to cosy!

 

2. Invest in some statement bedding items. While this may not seem like an obvious choice, decorating your bed is the perfect way to add some personality to your room! From pillows to cushions and duvet covers, there’s endless ways to showcase your sense of style.

 

3. Print off photos of your friends or family! Moving away from home can be daunting, so having a few pictures of your closest friends can make it feel a lot less lonely. You can also add on photos as you make memories throughout the year!

Your halls will most likely have a designated board for wall décor, so show off your creative flair with new arrangements and design ideas!

 

4. Channel your inner green thumb with a few house plants, or, if being a plant parent isn’t your thing, throw in a couple fake ones! Adding a touch of greenery to your room has been shown to elevate positive mood and wellbeing and overall, can help to create a more homely atmosphere.

If you aren’t so confident in your gardening skills, we recommend adding in some low-maintenance plants such as cacti or succulents!

 

5. Bring along your favourite comfort plushie, trust us, no one’s judging.
