Since childhood, we are used to the cosiness and comfort of our own home. During our school years, our room was our castle – the place where we write our homework, listen to music, relax, or maybe even cry. This is the place where we can stay on our own and spend our whole free time when we are at home. There is a soft bed, maybe a large balcony with a lot of flowers and beautiful view. We are used to all of these until the moment when we become university students. It is time to leave our own home and to start our new adventurous life. The first and most startling thing is our new home. But here are some tips with which we can transform our new room to make it cosier.

  1. Keep it clean and tidy

When we lived at our parents’ home, we got used to having a big and spacious room. It is easier to keep a room tidy when it is big and there are plenty of places to put your clothes and belongings. When there is a huge wardrobe and many cupboards, it is far easier to organize our clothes and notebooks. Also, when we live with our parents we are used to the fact that our mother will help us with the house work- she will do the laundry, wipe the floor, and dust all around. However, when we live alone we have to clean regularly in order to have a cosy room.

  1. Bring some home belongings

When you move to university, don’t forget to bring with you your favorite bed sheets, your most valuable photos, some precious souvenirs and gifts. This way, you will be closer to your friends and family, and you will make your room look like your own.

  1. Rearrange the furniture

Most dormitory rooms look the same and if you feel bored about that fact, change it. If you don’t like the desk in the corner or table in the middle of the room just move them. You may spend a couple of years in this room and you have to make sure that you feel comfortable in it.

  1. Pay attention to details

If you think that something is missing or your room looks empty – just hang up a clock on the wall or a calendar with your favorite band or singer. Another idea is to buy your favorite flowers, which will make your room smell nice and lift your spirits.
