Moving into halls? Personalising Your New Room is Cheap and Easy!

Moving into halls? Personalising Your New Room is Cheap and Easy!
2017-07-25

Moving into halls can be difficult for a number of reasons… We want you to be able to make it feel like home without fearing the damage bills at the end of the year.

Here are our top tips for making your bedroom your own whilst avoiding those dreaded bills:

Storage boxes

Many student rooms, especially in privately rented accommodation, don’t include much storage space so why not kill two birds with one stone and buy some patterned and colourful storage boxes to brighten up your room?  B&M have a wide range of cheap storage boxes.

Photos, posters and all that jazz

This is where you have to be careful because blue tac/white tac leaves little moisture marks on the walls and that usually means that the whole room will need a coat of paint when you leave.  Try sticking posters to your walls using self-adhesive strips instead. These are supposed to come off cleanly and leave no surface damage – meaning you can make your room feel more like your own by adding that band poster to your wall.

 

Optimize the use of your pin board

All of our halls rooms come with pin boards. So why not actually use it? You can pin up photos, bunting, fabric… the list could go on.

Add comfort with cushions

Primark has one of the best and cheapest home ranges and it’s filled with ADORABLE cushions. Pile these onto your bed teamed with a huge, fluffy blanket and you will have the cosiest and comfiest spot to read, watch movies, or actually get some studying done.

Desk top accessories

Let’s be honest, we can’t be expected to look after real plants… but the faux ones look just as good and can make your room feel brighter and more sophisticated. So why not grab yourself a few? They’ll look super cute next to candles and stationery storage baskets on your desk!

Make it smell like home

Our parents are all fascinated with those plug in air fresheners so getting one for your room can help it smell like a boudoir while also reminding you of your home comforts. You could even try a lavender scented diffuser to help keep you calm during those stressful periods.
