When you enter your university hostel room, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Doesn’t your room look like something that came out of a factory? Terribly white and beige? Yes, that was the first thing that popped in our minds too.
As much as it’s fun living in dorm rooms and making the most out of your stay, let’s admit that the monotonous rooms are actually quite boring. You can shake up things a little and make your room look more interesting by adding in your own personal style.
Here are some of the best decorating tips for students living in hostels:
- Washi Tape
What an invention! Ever since the washi tape was introduced the whole decoration game has changed massively. It does not leave a residue behind and it is perfect for basically anything. You can use it for decorating bookshelves, posters, frames, memories and doors and much more.
Lights give off a homey vibe, look subtle and are great for evenings. Simply setup your room with fairy lights and watch your room transform from a miss to a hit in seconds.
- Door stop
Door stops are not that expensive so you can head out to a home depot and purchase one for your room easily. Or you can make one yourself and reflect your personality through it. Don’t belittle the smallest things – it’s the attention to detail that makes your room uniquely yours.
While most of the hostel rooms are already furnished, some students find it difficult to sleep on the provided bed or sit on the hard chair. If your stay in the hostel is short, then you can opt for rental furniture in Singapore. If you plan on staying in the country for a longer time, you can try furniture leasing in Singapore instead.
- Pin board
This could easily be our favourite! A pin board can be used for so many different reasons. It can be used as a cluster board to pin your favourite memories on or even as a notice board where you can pin all your due assignments.
A bespoke rug can be an excellent addition when it comes to decorating your hostel room. It is inexpensive and adds so much colour to your room. These also feel cozy in winter. Think of it as a floor piece.
- Storage boxes
This was our secret back in the day but we can definitely share it our amazing readers. Instead of throwing your items in the cupboard floor or under your bed, choose quirky storage boxes. These will serve two purposes; they will store all the extra items and look aesthetically appealing.
These are all the decoration tips that we have for students living in hostels. Was this information helpful for you? Are there any other things you’ll like for us to touch on?
