Top tips for decorating your uni room

Wax on, wax off

Washi tape is magical stuff! It really is. 

Goodbye blue-tac marks. Hello funky, jazzy tape that doesn't leave any residue whatsoever. 

Magic we tell you. 

Use it to frame photos, make snazzy designs on your walls, or hold up your posters. 


Cover those blank walls

So, you're not allowed to transform your room into a Jackson Pollock shrine, but you can still add a splash of colour. 

Hang up a bright tapestry to cover those white walls.

Or, if you're not feeling the tapestry vibe, invest in some posters of your favourite films, books and bands to personalise your space. 


Creature comforts

No, unfortunately you can't bring your doggy best friend or cuddly cat to university. We were actually talking about furnishing your room with some comforting features... cushions, blankets and rugs galore!

What's more, they're great for making dens on that Saturday night you spend in. 



Viva vegetation! 

Bring the outside in by adding some plants to your room. Cacti, jade plants and rubber trees are all super easy to care for. 

But, if you still think you're going to end up with a crisp leaf within a week of buying your greenery, there are some great fake plants you can get out there!


Light up your life

Who doesn't like fairy lights? This is such a cheap way to make your halls feel instantly more homely and there are so many options out there for you to choose from! 


Shake it like a Polaroid picture

We've saved this classic gem until the end! Cover your room in Polaroid style photos and add to them throughout the year. You will be quite amazed at how much you've developed (pun intended) in just 12 months.
