Your university bedroom is not only a space for sleeping, eating, working and relaxing, it's also your one and only space during term-time that’s yours and only yours. So, how do you create a space that does it all?

Heading off to university with some simple design hacks for your new halls will set you up for a great start to student life.

Here lifestyle blogger Poppy Deyes (Kingston, 2014) gives us some tips on creating your perfect home away from home...

1. GIVE EVERYTHING A HOME

When you’re at university, there really is no such thing as too much storage and there’s always something that needs a home. These baskets can store everything and anything, from your washing, to your notebooks. Not only does buying a set of something look great, it’s also just super practical. Buy in bulk or in sets, the more the better.

2. BUY MULTITASKING ITEMS

Buying items that have more than one use is a win-win situation. Take these Kilner jars - not only are they perfect for storing pasta and pens, they also double up as vases, or even drinking glasses when you run low. This not only saves time and money, it’s also super practical, whilst looking fab.

3. THINK PRACTICAL, YET PERSONAL

The likelihood is you’re not going to have a huge amount of space, so you’re going to need to make the most out of what you do have. Buying items like a desk organiser will keep everything in order, whilst letting you add a personal touch to your space. When it comes to your study area, you’re going to want to create an area that you love to work in, that inspires your creativity and most importantly, somewhere you can be at your most productive.

4. THE FINISHING TOUCHES

Although you might not be able to paint your new room your favourite colour, you can still add your personal touch to it. Whether it’s using a colourful throw, or buying a couple of plants for your desk, picking pieces that make your space really feel homely doesn’t have to break the bank. Hang fairy lights from your headboard, or add a rug to your floor - it’s is the small touches that make all the difference.
