7 Essentials To Make Your Uni Room Relaxing

These uni room essentials will help you create a home away from home whilst at university! With these, you'll have a relaxing living space in no time!

Making your uni room comfortable and snug is absolutely essential when moving into halls. Decorating a room is an opportunity to channel your individuality whilst creating a safe space to call your own. If you’re living away from home for the first time, chances are you’ll want somewhere cosy and charismatic to relax after a day of lectures. Here are 7 essentials you definitely need if you want your uni room to be a relaxing environment!

1. A Beanbag Chair

We get it, uni is hard, and chill out time is valuable. And what better way to relax than by curling up on a beanbag chair and binge-watching your fave Netflix series? Beanbag chairs are a great addition to any uni room and provide somewhere comfortable to unwind and forget about the world for an evening. Your uni room is going to be pretty bland when you first move in, but I can guarantee that a beanbag chair will definitely bring a little luxury to the place!

2. Speakers

If you don’t already own a pair, make sure to get yourself a set of speakers before or during your time at uni. Playing your favourite tunes or some relaxing music through your speakers will generate a calm, positive atmosphere in your uni room. If you find that listening to music improves your focus when studying, then speakers are a necessity! Opt for a pair of retro speakers if you want to add a vintage touch to your room.

3. Fairy Lights

Lights, lights and more lights! Adding some soft lighting to your uni room will enhance its appearance and create a zen space to relax. Drape a string of lights across a wall or a wardrobe, and let them do the talking! If you want to add a personalised touch, why not opt for a set of peg fairy lights so you can illuminate some snaps of your loved ones?

4. Cosy Throws and Blankets

No bed setup is truly complete without a couple of cosy blankets thrown into the mix! Instead of dragging yourself all the way to the library, why not cosy up and study under a pile of blankets instead? And when you aren’t putting them to good use, these uni room essentials will make lovely accessories to display at the end of your bed. For aesthetic purposes, make sure to select a blanket or throw that compliments the colour scheme of your duvet and pillows!

5. A Lava Lamp

Not only do they look super cool, but lava lamps are a fantastic source of low-level lighting which can give your uni room a homely feel. Uni room lighting is often very harsh and unwelcoming, so when you want more of a soft glow instead, lava lamps are essential! They come in lots of different colours, so choose your fave and add a little sparkle to your room!

6. A Reed Diffuser

If you aren’t allowed to burn any scented candles in your uni room, then a relaxing reed diffuser is a fantastic alternative! Reed diffusers make your whole room smell amazing but aren’t super overpowering, so you achieve just the right effect without having to endure a claustrophobic, artificial smell. They come in a wide range of scents, so you can choose the one you like best. Fig and cotton diffusers are timeless classics and scents like lavender and chamomile create a combined, fragrant aroma, which de-stresses and calms.

7. Plants

Plants are a uni student’s best friend! Believe it or not, keeping a plant on your desk or on your windowsill can help boost your mood and lessen symptoms of stress, making your room a total relaxation zone! Because they produce oxygen, plants help make the air a little fresher and add a natural touch to your room. They’re wonderful little essentials.
