Are you getting ready to go to uni? Or are you a parent with teens about to fly the nest? It's such an exciting time, and there can be some nerves, especially in the first year. Making a student's living space comfy and nice to look at is a great way to help them settle in. We've got seven easy, temporary ways to personalise your uni room, to brighten up your halls of residence and make it feel like home straight away.
Photos of Family and Friends Back Home Instantly Personalise Your Uni Room
Print off some favourites photos before you head off to university, and pop them in frames, or take pins for a pin board. Why not order some cute photo frame stickers in your favourite colour? Just peel them off and stick them to your room, and tape photos in the frames with washi tape. At the end of the year, simply peel them off, without worrying about your damage deposit. Choose your favourite colour from our wide range, or mix up a few sets like we have done here.
Take Easy-Care Plants to Make You Feel at Home at Uni
Plants give a great sense of wellbeing to any space, and lots of them even help purify the air, according to NASA! Spider Plants and Peace Lilies are student classics as they are so forgiving of being neglected, or try Snake Plants, also known as Mother In Law's Tongue for something a bit more structural.
If you think you'll probably kill your plant babies, you could always cheat and channel the biophilic design trend with un-killable plant wall stickers!
