Uni Room Inspiration: 5 Tips For Decorating Your University Halls

You’re finally going to Uni and the big moving day is right around the corner. Leaving home for the first time can be just as terrifying as it is exciting, but we’re here to share some guidance on how to make your new university halls look just like your Pinterest board.

1. Create the Illusion of Extra Space

It’s no secret that most university halls in the UK are nothing short of a box room. It’s quite likely that you will be strapped for space with minimal lighting and plain walls. Do not let this worry you, we have the perfect solution for creating the illusion of extra space whilst brightening up the room at the same time. The simple answer is to hang a mirror on your walls, this will create depth in your room whilst allowing light to bounce off and reflect to other corners of the room.

2. Keep Organised & Tidy With Storage

Smaller rooms tend to get messy very quickly. Although staying tidy and organised is probably not at the top of your mind right now, trust us when we say extra storage space will be a lifesaver.

3. Cover Ugly Uni Furniture

Moving away from home can be a big shock to the system, and that is absolutely normal. We recommend bringing a piece of home with you by hanging pictures of your friends and family around your new room. It’s always nice to have a reminder that your loved ones are never too far away.
