Go Green – Adding plants to your pad makes it feel more homely, as well as the fact that plants are known to reduce stress levels. This comes in handy for when you are studying hard for your exams!

Light it up – Lighting is a great way to make your place feel a lot cosier. By adding table lamps and string lights, you can enjoy a more relaxed environment. Try changing the main lampshade too and look into fun lighting like lava lamps or colour change lamps too.


Surround Yourself with Happy Memories – To have something special to look at every day, why not print off some of your favourite photos and create a photo wall? As well as making the room look more like a home, having happy photos on display will help to boost your mood.
