Designing The Perfect Student Apartment

So, the time has come for you to go to college. Finally, you can say goodbye to your small room, your family house, and your boring parents who demanded that you get home early, or told you to turn the volume down while you were listening to your favourite music. It’s all history now! You will feel the sweetness of student life, but you will also take a responsibility for many other important things like studying really hard, passing the exams on time etc. Your student apartment will become the place where you will be studying, eating, sleeping, making parties or spending a wonderful time with your special someone. Think about how you’ll arrange it, and we can help you with making those decisions.

Set your priorities straight

Ask yourself how you spend the most of your time. Do you love to read? Do you have a lot of clothes? Do you really need big kitchen? Will you be living alone? Spend some time analyzing your habits and life style and make notes writing your conclusions. If you are going to live with someone else, take some time to talk to them and see if you need to change something in the way you do certain things, for example reading out loud while you’re studying.

Arranging the place with a lot of love

Anything you decide to do, do it with love, because you will be spending most of your college days in that place. Think about it, you’ll remember it for the rest of your life, so why not make a small effort and make it comfortable just for you. You don’t necessarily need to spend a fortune on a new couch when you can simply visit any closeout and buy cheap and good looking bedspread and cover that cosy old couch. Fill the walls with pictures which mean a lot to you and remember, more colourful you make it, happier you’ll be spending time in it. When it’s time to rest from hard studying, dimming those lights can be particularly pleasant, especially if we talk about small, cheap, ambient lamps. Use details like candles, oriental items or sea shells to enrich your space.

Don’t forget – you came here to study!

We know, life of a student is full of temptations which are trying to set you off your course – finishing the college! No matter how tempting this lifestyle is, your obligations should come first. Do try to study and do your best to get good grades. Setting a comfortable place to study is one way to keep focused. Buying some quality office furniture and decorating a part of your apartment in such way can help you feel inspired for work. For example, ergonomic chair will make sitting for long hours much easier.

If you’re sharing your living space, try to give the other person some privacy. Be respectful of other people’s space and time, we’re sure you’d like them to do the same for you. All we can say to you now is – good luck and enjoy the days before you.
