Recently, I went out to take a look at some homeware options for my room, inspecting everything from lovely little ornaments to new curtains etc.
I eventually found myself in Primark in my hometown, and stumbled upon a few items that I found to be very aesthetically pleasing and affordable to make any student room look better on the eyes.
For starters, plants can always bring a sight of colour and unique scents to a room, and each plant is unique in some way giving you individualists some one-and-only flavour in your decor choices. But, real plants require some mid-high level maintenance which most people won't have time for. To combat this, try to go for some artificial or low-maintenance plants like the Copper Potted Plants above. Primark offers them for around £3 each, both artificial and real, and require little to no maintenance. They fit with practically most rooms, offering a sub-monochromatic look and texture to desks.
However, what about some scents?
Madagascan Vanilla is a pretty lovely scent for any room, giving it a fresh South-East African welcome to your room when you enter, or a nice aroma for when you're about to leave to give you something to remember home by. Primark has a lovely and varied selection of candles, majority going for £2 a pop, affordable and easy to replace once used - Lasting at most for 30-40 hours at most.
To finish off your room, I'd recommend adding a throw to make your bed comfy and soft, as well as temperature smart for those cold winter months. Throws at Primark can vary in price, but most go for around £4-6 depending when and where you look. Add in a duvet set that matches as well, to give your room some added colour and comfort.
