The average student spends 13 out of 24 hours in their bedroom.

Whether you are working, relaxing or resting, the atmosphere of your bedroom should make you feel at home. We have outlined 5 ways in which you can decorate your bedroom without affecting your deposit!

Plants

Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, they offer numerous health benefits. Plants naturally absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen through the process of photosynthesis. This can contribute to better air quality in your bedroom, creating a healthier environment. Studies have also suggested that interacting with indoor plants can positively impact mood and reduce stress. The presence of greenery can create a more relaxed and soothing atmosphere in your bedroom.

Lighting & Posters

Having better lighting in your bedroom is important for several reasons, as it can significantly impact both the functionality and ambiance of the space. Here are some compelling reasons to invest in better lighting for your bedroom:

  • Lighting plays a key role in setting the mood and creating a specific atmosphere in your bedroom. Adjustable and dimmable lighting options allow you to control the intensity of light, creating a cosy and relaxing environment when needed.
  • Enhances visibility. Seems quite an obvious one, however still very important! Ensuring you have appropriate lighting helps when studying or settling down for the evening.

 

Before you Blu Tack your wall, hear us out… Companies now offer magnet-mounting posters, which look great and don’t leave marks on the wall. As well as expressing your personality, they also fill that empty wall with art. Inspirational posters with motivational quotes or images can serve as daily reminders of your goals and aspirations. Or your posters can represent memories or experiences that hold sentimental value. Whether it’s a poster from a memorable concert, a favourite movie, or a travel destination, they can evoke positive emotions and nostalgia.

Bedding

Opt for bedding that not only looks good but also meets your comfort preferences and maintenance requirements. Good bedding contributes significantly to a better night’s sleep, making you wake up feeling refreshed. Aesthetic bedding also makes it easy to update the look of your bedroom with changing seasons or evolving design trends. You can switch out bedding sets to keep your room feeling fresh and up-to-date without the need for major decor changes.

Functionality

Tidy room, tidy mind. Investing in furniture that will help keep your room tidy is crucial. Our top recommendations are washing baskets, a bin and desk organisers. A clutter-free and organised bedroom can have a positive impact on your mental well-being. A clean environment reduces visual stress and promotes a sense of order and control, helping to lower stress levels. It’s also the most important attribute of making your bedroom look amazing!

 

The best part of these recommendations? They can fit all budgets! We hope these help kickstart your 2024 and assist in smashing your goals for the new year!
