How I decorated my uni room



When you first walk into your uni room, it can look a bit boring until you’ve put up some decoration. It doesn’t have to be expensive either; I just brought some things up that I had in my room at home.

Here’s how I decorated my uni room.


It was my sister’s wedding last year and I found that photos from this on my walls made the room so much brighter with lots of happy memories. I also put up some photos of my holidays and polaroids strung across the room to add a more homely feel to the room. 

Cosy add on’s

When I moved to uni, I got new bedding, blankets and cushions to add a more cosy feel to the room. It makes for a comfy bed to read a book, watch a film or sit with my friends. I also got myself a cheap storage seat which not only gives me extra space to put things, but also gives my friends an actual place to sit when they come over.


Fairy lights make a massive difference to a room and are great for winter evenings when it gets dark so early. I also found an amazing touch light on Amazon. It’s really relaxing to stick a film on after a long day under the fairy lights to unwind.

A bit of life

I’m not great at keeping plants, but they do add a bit of life to my room. At the moment, I’m trying to keep a bonsai tree going and the deep green leaves really add a good finishing touch to the room.

Reed diffusers

I love getting a new reed diffuser in my room. As I have such a small space, it keeps it smelling fresh and lasts for quite a while.
