How to make your room at university feel like home.

Now that the university places have been allocated, it seems right that we all begin to think about what it is that actually needs to be taken with you to help you settle in, and what you should take to make the place feel like home...

When I first got the key to my student accomodation I was slightly horrified to see exactly what it was I was paying for. It was in essence a tiny room with breeze block walls that really didn't feel anything like home... The bed wasn't even a full size single!!

I'd like to think that by the end of the year, the concrete coffin had become more of a home and reflected my personality a whole lot more - even if it was always a mess...

Today I'm sharing my top three tips as to how to make your student room yours without spending all of your loan, even if it looks like there is no was it's ever going to be like home...

1. Focus on the bed - The bed may well be the biggest feature in your room. I mean lets be honest, I'm guessing it will be one of/if not the biggest piece of furniture that you own. The best way to start changing your room is to find a duvet, and throw and pillows that draws attention to it taking away people attention to the slightly worse part of the room, like the horrible colour walls or curtains. I go for three or four cheap Wilko's duvets which mean I can chop and change regularly. (And when you have three or four, theres no need to get it washed and dried!)

2. Accessorise the room - Be it fairy lights, lamps or photos on the wall, everyone had a set idea of what their dream house feels like and which ideas they should take from home so that they don't feel like they are mile away. I found lots of photos were a popular idea as well. Invest in white tack, and trawl the homeware sections of big shops!

3. Keep it clean - I feel like my mother with this step but I have found that when a room is small, mess looks more than it is. I know that I never quite managed to keep my room perfectly clean, but I tried. Mostly.

What do you think? How else would you make your room like home?
