For many first year university students moving away from home to go to uni is the first time ever that they have lived independently away from home. Whether you are going to be moving into somewhere like this Cheltenham Student Accommodation https://www.yourperfectpad.com or you are moving into halls, one of the most important things to do to help you to settle in is to make the place feel like home. Here are three ways you can do exactly that…
Lighting – This is a great way to make the place feel much more homely and can be done on a student sized budget! Adding lighting like string lights instantly makes the place feel warm and more homely. Add a cosy bedside lamp, a lava lamp and a desk lamp too to make sure that you have a range of lighting that will make you feel relaxed and comfortable.
Soft Touches – Nothing says home more than somewhere safe to snuggle up at the end of a long day – or a long night out! Make sure that you have some cosy cushions, snug knitted throws and comfortable bedding so that getting back home is a treat and somewhere where you can relax and unwind.
Add Personality – It is easy to stamp your personality on a place to make it feel like yours. Bring your favourite photos from home, as well as wall art and posters that you can decorate with. If you have favourite ornaments at home bring a couple with you to help the space, feel more like your own.
