You are halfway through the year now and it is going to be a tough couple of months after Christmas. One way in which you can help boost your motivation and concentration is to have a study space that is minimal but also has some personal touches. If you have a cluttered bedroom, you are not going to be able to get much done, once you do have everything in place you will have a clearer mind. It really is true what they say, a tidy home, a tidy mind. This doesn’t have to be expensive, but it will help a lot. In this article, we will go through some simple ways in which you can decorate your student bedroom on a budget.
Get Some New Bedding
If you have had the same bedding all year then it could be time to start looking for a fresh one. You could even go all festive with a Christmas themed bedding set which will make your room feel nice and cosy. This will give the room a fresh look whilst also getting you in the mood for some fun. A personal touch is always something that is needed in a student bedroom, especially when you are away from your family. This is most certainly one of the easiest ways to bring some colour to your room.
Invest In A New Pillow and Blanket
By picking up some new pillows and a new blanket can do the world of good. When you move in, chances are you will either have no sheets or used sheets so get your own. This not only makes you look like you have your stuff together but also will benefit you in these winter months when it gets cold. They also make great snuggles if you are homesick or hungover.
Get Some Storage & Separators
Chances are that you are going to be living in a small room so you need as much space as possible. A great way to do this is to get some new storage boxes and draw organisers, yes it may sound silly but you will thank yourself when you have it all set up. You’ll genuinely be amazed by how much extra space you will have at the end. There are many places where you can pick these up including Wilko and Ikea. Another area which may be useful for storage is under your bed, this makes for storing your bigger items that you don’t always need.
Buy Some Lamps
Lighting benefits you in many different ways, it can help you wake up, it can help you set the mood, it can even help you to unwind so why wouldn’t you have any lamps in your room? If you have room opt for two but one will be perfect if you have a small space. To make it even better, opt for warm yellow lights rather than cold white LEDs as this will make your room cold and won’t give you the effect that you need.
If you have any fairy lights knocking around, you could even use them to put around your room for some extra ambience. They make great decorations when you have a bare wall that needs filling. It can be difficult to have anything on the walls with rules but you can easily get these installed with decorating clips where you don’t damage the walls.
Personalise With Homely Touches
This could be anything that you want, whether they are 3D portraits, a couple of photos or you could even create a wall collage out of your favourite photos of family and friends. The possibilities are endless. Having homely touches will result in many benefits, especially when you are feeling a little homesick. If you make a wall collage, you will be able to continuously improve, alter or replace photos so that it is always up to date. If you have anything that reminds you of home then bring it with you.
There are many different ways in which you can decorate your student bedroom on a budget. It just requires some looking on Pinterest to get the best ideas whilst also having a think outside the box so you get the look and feel you want. At the end of the day, this is your room to do with what you want, now enjoy that privilege and start improving the feel of your room.
