7 Ways To Decorate Your University Flat

Moving away to university can be difficult, so it’s important that you feel at home in your new space. Your university flat should be your home away from home, and how you choose to decorate it will contribute to how true this is. Decorating your flat doesn’t need to be expensive or time consuming, so follow these 7 tips to make your flat the best it can be!

1. Fairy Lights

Everyone can agree that fairy lights have the ability to instantly make a space cosier, and because of that, you will find a set in almost every university bedroom. You can buy strings and strings of fairy lights (fairly inexpensively) to hang on your walls, across your ceilings or around your windows to brighten up your room.

2. House Plants

If you’re missing your garden whilst you’re away at school, you need to invest in some house plants. Make your bedroom, kitchen or hallway into a makeshift greenhouse with some greenery, to breathe some life into your university flat. You can get larger, potted plants if you have the space (and the time), but if you want something a little more low maintenance, get yourself some succulents. You can keep this in small pots to line your shelves and window sills, or find a terrarium to encase them in glass for some more interesting decoration. House plants are the perfect way to brighten up your flat and make it your own.

3. Throws

To make your university flat your home away from home, it definitely needs some throw blankets. Not only will these keep you warm when you’re heating inevitably breaks, but they’re a cheap and easy way to decorate. If your bedroom is small, then it’s likely your bed will be taking up most of the space in it, so use this to your advantage when decorating with some interesting bedding.

4. Postcards

The best way to fill up those empty walls when you move into your university flat is with postcards. Whether they’re of places you’ve been, art, pictures of bands, books, or quotes that you like, fill your room with a mosaic of postcards to really make it your own. Filling the empty walls of your university bedroom is a great place to start in making it feel more like home. Remember to use white-tack rather than blue-tack to hang them up to avoid damaging the walls!

6. Rugs

One thing that most university flats have in common is their year-round cold temperatures. If you’re living with wooden or tiled floors, the thought of getting out of bed in the morning to walk around on icy floors is not a tempting one. To make these cold mornings a little more bearable, try getting some rugs for your flat. Not only will this keep your flat warmer, but some patterned rugs will make it look a lot more stylish and decorated.

7. Books

Every university student will be in possession of quite a few books, so why not incorporate them into your decor? You can use them to line your window sill so that they frame your view, or even pile them up in your room to achieve a look of organised chaos. If you want something a little neater, buy a bookshelf that you can line them up on for a style that is both tidy and aesthetic. You can even pile up some books next to your bed to use as a makeshift bedside table if you don’t have one!
