The Room Organisation Tips You Need know…
Many students believe uni life and disorganisation go hand in hand. Don’t worry – it doesn’t have to be that way. If you’re one of the many who simply can’t think when you’re in the midst of chaos, these organisation tips will have your room clean, comfortable, and organised in no time, even if it’s a bit less space than you once had at home.
#1 – Go Below!
If your room isn’t quite as big as you’d like, you may be able to utilise some of the space under your bed. Under your bed storage is available that could be used to hold almost anything. Add a small storage unit to your desk, and you automatically have more shelving than you did before. You could use the walls for pin boards, magnet boards or other organisers that will give you a place for absolutely everything.
#2 – Rethink Furniture
No room for a comfy chair or futon? Consider some accent pillows and maybe a throw on your bed instead. It means a great way to relax and watch a bit of telly without feeling like it’s time for bed. You can repurpose other furniture to meet your needs as well. Your study area, for instance, might double as your dining room table when you’re not headed to the kitchen for meals.
#3 – Rollers Rock
If you’re going to be short on space here and there, consider a cart on rollers so you can move it around a bit. At night, it could function as your bedside table. During the day, maybe it sits beside your desk. If you can move it around, you may feel like you have far more space.
#4 – Meet the Command Hook
If you haven’t already used Command hooks, it may be time to start. Available nearly everywhere, these handy hooks give you a place for your headphones, your keys, even your jacket. They can literally transform your room from a pile of disaster to organised oasis in a matter of minutes.
Uni life is far easier when you can actually find your revision timetable, and getting organised is the first step in that process.
