Add blankets and pillows for extra comfort
Placing a few comfy blankets on your bed as well as many cute pillows and cushions will make the space feel more home-like, while also increasing the level of comfort. You can go with bright colours or funny prints, in order to bring the environment of your room to life without much effort. So go shopping to the nearest home&deco store and purchase these elements.
Wall photo collage
When missing your loved ones back home, it will come in handy to have some photographs of them around the room. Print out your favourite pictures of memorable moments with each one of your family members and friends, and create a beautiful collage, placing it on the wall. You can even tape each photo on one of your walls directly, and perhaps add an art print for a more pleasant visual effect. If you have a favourite band or artist, including a few posters in your collage can also be a good idea.
Lights and decorations
Even if it might not be the festive season, some fairy or Christmas lights can add a cozy and romantic feeling to your room, regardless of season. You can place them around your bed, on your walls or around a mirror, and they will certainly look great. Also, there are inexpensive to buy, and if you add some other cute decorations, your room will seem even more personalized and cute.
Making your student room feel a bit more like home is not that difficult, if you use these few simple ideas. You can accessories your room even more over time, if you come up with your own ideas, but for now you can start with these ones. However, before making more complex changes to your student room, make sure to discuss with the landlord and to request their approval. By choosing the right student accommodation and beatifying the space, you can prevent feeling homesick.
