5 Ways to Freshen Up Your Room for the Start of Uni

Freshen your room

Forget the annual Spring clean, Summer is here and so is the start of the university semester so there’s no better time to freshen up your space. Here are our top tips for sprucing up your room this Summertime.

1. Treat yourself to new sheets

Nothing quite hits the “reset” button like buying brand new bed sheets. Fresh, crisp sheets are a rite of passage for everyone. They have a certain healing ability.

They say you should buy new bed sheets every two years, depending on the wear-and-tear. But they don’t have to cost the Earth...KMart is your best friend.

2. Turn your room into a tranquil Eden

Transform your space by adding new life. Plants will breathe air into your room (literally - they will increase oxygen levels) and make it feel lighter and brighter. Plants also have psychological benefits meaning they can improve your mood.

If the responsibility of caring for plants isn’t for you, cacti, aloe and succulents require almost no attention. Simply pop them on your shelf or windowsill and enjoy their beauty!

3. Little touches make a world of difference

Revamp your room by making small decor changes. You could hang new artwork or a mirror, experiment with lighting, print out photos of friends and family and pop them into frames, rearrange your storage, or even buy some more pillows to create a sanctuary!

4. Rearrange your furniture

Bored of your space? Is it making you feel unmotivated and uninspired? Try rearranging it!

Moving your furniture around so that your bed is against a different wall and your desk is facing a window will make you feel renewed and regenerated. Change is good for the soul, so mix things up and keep things exciting!

5. Fresh Clean Smell!

When moving into UniLodge your room will already be sparkling clean, but nothing completes a good tidy up then a fresh spray and wipe. Grab some cleaning products, play some loud music and wipe down those nooks and crannies to make sure your whole room is fresh. 

A final wipe-down, and vacuum whilst you are at it, will give you an instant boost and a feeling of satisfaction, and will prepare you for any upcoming tasks.

Start your university semester the right way by freshening up your space!
