When you first move into your accommodation for University, it can feel daunting having a new space. One of the things you can do to make your student housing feel more comfortable is to make it your own. Here are some tips on how you can make your new space feel more like home and improve your student living experience.
Add Mood Lighting
By adding a fun lamp and fairy lights to your space, you can create a cosy atmosphere whenever you are relaxing in your room. Mood lighting can often help people unwind and improve their mental health. Fairy lights can be easily draped around your room without damaging walls, and you can even attach pictures and other memories too.
Try Customising Your Bookshelf
All of our student studios and houses provide storage for each student. One way you can make your space feel more homely is by decorating your shelves and making them more interesting. You can use little trinkets, greenery and anything that will make you feel good. It’s also not a bad idea to organise your open shelving, which will help you stay on top of your revising and feel more relaxed in your space.
Spend The Time Organising Your Things
As mentioned above, organising is always a great way to improve your space. When you first move into your new space, it can feel overwhelming trying to figure out where all of your things should go. Spending the time organising your space and putting items in places that make sense to you and are easy to access can help. This way you will have less stress in the mornings when you are rushing around trying to get ready for lectures.
Create A Course Planner/Deadline Board
Another good way to keep your head focused on your studies is to create a plan for your course. You could include deadline dates, lecture times, objectives, and any other important details. Having all of your information written down in one place will help free up your brain for other things, whilst also giving you a sense of accomplishment.
Try Adding Décor
Although this may sound slightly strange to some, adding personal touches to your space will make it feel homely and like it is your own. You can try adding fun cushions and throws to make your space feel cosy and to keep you warm in the winter months.
Adding greenery is also a great option, regardless of whether it is real or fake. Yes, live plants add a lot of nutrients to the air, but if you are worried about keeping plants alive, then faux greenery is still a great way to make a positive visual impact on your space.
