To decorate the perfect student room, you just need a lot of organization, a few items, and to be as practical as possible. Even better, you can do this without throwing style out the door.

If you’re about to begin university, you’re probably wanting to decorate your room in a personal way, especially if you’ll be away from home.

You’re going to need to concentrate on your studies and organization will easily inspire you to dedicate all of your energy to this. There are many ways to arrange a study corner and adapt it to your needs in a practical way.

Keys to decorate your student room

In this article, you’ll find useful solutions for any budget and that are compatible with the small space of a student room. With these tips, you’ll be able to take maximum advantage of the space that you have. At the same time, you’ll achieve a relaxed environment that’ll allow you to focus your attention on what you need to do.

The magic of lists

Whether you stay at home, you move to a shared apartment, or you’ve decided to live in a dorm, you must start making a list of everything that you’ll need.

Prioritize and remember the guidelines that Marie Kondo teaches. That way you’ll avoid accumulating things that you don’t need. Now, more than ever, space is important, and having your things organized will help you reach your goals and avoid chaos.

First, make a list of everything you think is essential. If you’re moving, you can list items by category. For instance, the things for your desk, decorative items, organizing containers, etc.

Also, it’s a good time to dispose of anything that you don’t use. For example, you can donate, gift, and throw out things that you won’t be using again. This will help you clean out to move.

Use practical accessories and furniture

If you need to buy an accessory or a piece of furniture for your student room, go for something easy! Look for practical solutions that can adapt to any space. Why make this project large and tedious?

Be aware of others if you’re going to share a space and ask about their expectations and plans. Another idea is to use curtains for privacy. If you use a pressure shower curtain rod, you won’t have to do any DIY work. Doesn’t this sound like a super ingenious idea?

Don’t forget to put up a bulletin board or magnetic board to have all your projects at hand. Take a look at Amazon. If you don’t want to put nails in the wall, you can rest it on your desk.

Avoid filling your space with accessories, and invest in document organizers, a good chair, and a desk according to your needs.

Decorating your shared student room

If you’re going to live your student life in a shared space, you’ll see that this has a lot of advantages. Besides getting to know new people, you’ll have unforgettable times. What’s more, you’ll learn to live with personalities that you’ve never experienced before.

Cohabiting also requires much organization and discipline so that everyone is happy. Therefore, it’s a good idea to divide the space and have specific areas for each person and for each activity.

If you need to keep valuable objects safe, closets you can lock are very useful. At IKEA you’ll find the intelligent lock called ROTHULT. It’s easy to lock and unlock from your phone or with a special card, without the need for keys.

Define limits very clearly. In the beginning, it’s awesome when everything is very relaxed, and it appears that no one is bothered by anything. But, over time, it’s best to have defined parameters.

Finally, to decorate a student room, you need to have three things clear: good organization, limited items, and everything needs to be practical.

In this way, you’ll be able to enjoy the experience peacefully, without complications, and be able to concentrate on the most important thing, which is your studies.
