  • Simple Decorating Tips for Students on a Budget

    Brighten up your room with affordable decor

    Let’s face it student accommodation can be pretty bland at the best of times, but with a few handy decorating tips, you can easily transform your surroundings into a dreamy new space, that feels home from home, won’t cost the earth and will leave you feeling inspired and ready to take on all that University life has to offer!

    Creative Desk Space
    You’ll probably be spending some time at your desk, so if you haven’t got room for a traditional desk, then a simple solution could be a ladder desk, with built-in shelving. You can store your folders and books on the shelves above the desk and add a colour light, photos and plants to add some interest.

    Foldaway Tables
    If you’re stuck for space in your student bedroom then why not look at folding tables as a practical solution for small rooms, when not in use they can be easily stored away. They also add a decorative touch to any room in the house. They can be used for a multitude of different scenarios; TV dinners, storing books, used as a bedside table, serving drinks from the tray. They are also well priced at only £29.99.

    Cosy Corners
    Enhance your student bedroom with cosy soft furnishings like cushions and throws to add some home comfort and texture to your space. Throws and blankets come in all shapes, sizes and materials, but for the on-going autumnal months why not choose a gorgeous faux throw as an option.

    Nifty Storage
    If you don’t have room for storing clothes then consider investing in clothes rails which is a cheap alternative to a traditional wardrobe. Use every nook in your room and use storage crates to store clothes, books, toiletries, towels – they come in all sorts of colours and materials and are a cheap way of clearing the clutter and organising your belongings.

    Mirror mirror on the wall
    If you can hang items on the wall then why not look at adding a mirror which can enhance your room by creating the illusion of space. Save even more space simply by using the back of your door or if there’s room, use a full-size mirror and angle it from the floor.

    Picture Perfect
    Picture frames and chalkboards are a great way to keep notes and personal keepsakes close to hand but also make sure you stay organised and uncluttered. Multi-sized picture frame boards are fantastic for keeping all your favourite personal photographs in one place whereas you can write to-do lists on chalkboards, an easy way to keep up to date.

    Hook line and sinker
    Another top tip for keeping a small space neat and tidy is by using either single hooks to hang items on the back of the door or shelving with hooks to store books, files and other keepsakes. Wire storage not only looks fresh and modern but can also help you keep your room organised and doesn’t need to cost the earth either.
