By this time of the year you’ve probably accepted your uni halls room offer and you’re extremely excited to start planning how it’s going to look like. Uni halls bedrooms are not naturally cute and you won’t probably have much room, but with these dorm decor ideas I’ve got for you, we’ll make it look like a Pinterest picture!
You’ll spend a lot of time in that room and we want to make it feel as homey as possible but also really fun and useful. And stylish, obviously. Check out these uni bedroom ideas and get ready!
1. Comfy chair
You’ll probably need a different spot to lounge other than the bed or the – really uncomfortable – desk chair. These bean bags are perfect for reading, studying, face-timing your friends, and they are adorable.
2. Cosy Bedding
You’ll need a place to feel nice and warm, and also kind of homey. Comfortable linens and pillows will not also make your uni room look pretty and cosy but also warm and homey.
3. Sofa By Day, Bed By Night
Uni rooms are not spacious, if you can choose the bed, why not a 2 in 1? It’s perfect to hang out with your friends during the day and it makes an amazing big bed at night. Worth giving it a try.
4. Throw Pillows
Your bed is the only spot in your uni room where you can go all-in with your creativity. Throw pillows and blankets are an amazing way to add texture and character to your room without breaking the bank.
5. Temporary Wallpaper
You can’t paint the walls but you can cover them with peel-off wallpaper! Just be careful when peeling it, we don’t want to take off that amazing cream colour all uni bedrooms have… (we wish).
6. Wall Art
Warm your uni bedroom up with modern wall art that reminds you of home. Use pictures of your loved ones, beautiful frames, quotes… whatever makes you feel at home.
I used FreePrints for the pictures I had on the wall when I lived at uni halls. It’s literally free, you just pay a couple of pounds for delivery and the quality is incredible.
7. Cute Storage
You’ll need lots of storage in your room, but you can keep it organised and stylish at the same time. This is one of the must-haves to your small bedroom decor ideas list for sure!
8. Stylish Laundry Basket
Okay, we all hate laundry, especially at uni. Having to carry the hamper to the laundry room and back is a pain in the ass. Why not making that task a little less hideous with a cute laundry basket?
9. Jewellery Organizers
This shouldn’t just be uni dorm ideas, it should be life ideas. I remember having my jewellery all over the place at uni and I lost so many lovely things. Should have gotten one of these earlier for sure.
10. A Rug
I am a massive believer in the power of a rug. They make spaces look much bigger and brighter. It will add a lot of texture and personality to your perfect uni dorm!
Plants bring life into spaces, even if they’re fake. If you’re brave and want them real, they will clean the air of your room as well.
12. Pretty Desk Decoration
Keeping your desk organised and clean is really important through your uni life. You’ll need a place that allows you to stay focused and doesn’t have a lot of distractions.
I hope these dorm decor ideas help you create the cutest room! Leave me your ideas and opinions in the comments!
