When you’re a student on a tight budget, the smallest changes can make a huge difference to the look and feel of your room. One of the best ways to brighten it up is by adding cushions and throws, injecting a fresh pop of color and texture. Soft furnishings are the easiest thing to change on a seasonal basis as they are an affordable, quick switch.
You could also add prints to brighten up a plain wall (most student accommodation won’t allow nails, so Command strips are the best solution!) Consider a gallery wall consisting of different prints and photographs, each placed in a different frame for a personalised design statement.
From a more functional perspective, you could improve organization by adding dividers to your drawers, creating different compartments for your cables, stationery and other bits-and-bobs. Baskets are also a great option for stylish storage, especially if your student accommodation doesn’t have sufficient wardrobe/cupboard space.
