Student decorating tips – personalising your studio

Adding some personal touches can quickly transform your student studio apartment into a cosy home.

Here are five easy tips on how to decorate your space without breaking the bank, or your tenancy agreement!

Bring colour with soft furnishings

Treat yourself to a new set of bedding to give your room an instant fresh look and feel. Choose from a range of colours and patterns to suit your style. Add a few cushions for a cosy feel, which can also be used for extra seating if you’re short on space when friends pop round. And why not add a soft throw for a bit of added luxury and warmth during the cooler months.

Make a statement with your rug

Choose a colourful rug for your room to add an instant injection of colour. There’s a huge choice of shapes, patterns and materials to fit any space. A soft, fluffy rug can also add an extra bit of comfort underfoot.

Customise your desk

Make your desk a fun place for your studies with a few simple accessories. Personalise your space with photos of family and friends, small plants and trinkets. Visit the local charity shop for a few unique bargain buys to brighten up your workspace and create a lovely work environment.

Decorate your notice board

Notice boards provided in your room by your student accommodation provider are ideal for adding colour and personalisation through photos, postcards or small posters and flyers.

Brighten your day with flowers

Colourful fresh cut flowers, or even an artificial arrangement, can add vibrancy to any room. Low maintenance indoor plants are another good way to add some greenery and tranquility to your apartment space.
