How To Make Your Student House More Homely

If you're a student or were one, once upon a time, you'll probably know how incredibly grim student accommodation can be. The ugly carpets, the peeling wallpaper, bland walls. It doesn't always make for the nicest place to live. And of course, because you're renting, there isn't much you can do to really improve it. BUT there are a few things you can easily add around the house to make yourself feel more at home!

1. Wrap pipe cleaners around cupboard handles.

(This is disgusting. I am ashamed. Lol.)

2. Stick webcam photos of you and your housemates everywhere.

3. Don't clean - makes it look lived in*

4. Put up inappropriate pictures.

5. Stick anything and everything to the fridge.

6. More pictures of you and your housemates.

7. Fairy lights make everything cosier.

8. Find art and stick it everywhere. When I say art I mean do some finger painting.

9. Have cosy blankets in your bedroom and in the living room.

10. Same goes for cushions.

11. Drape material over cupboard doors or over your bed to make for cosiness.

*Don't do this 'cos it's grim and one of you will get food poisoning at some point. Well, you'll probably get it anyway from eating mouldy bread or someone turning the freezer off but still... be clean.

Edit: The drawing was done by my housemate, not a cute 6-year-old cousin.
