If you’ve moved away to study or you’re relatively unfamiliar with the local area you may need a map. Why not combine home decoration with some practical considerations? Buy a cheap map of the local area and a second hand picture frame and voilà! You have something cool to hang on the wall and a handy reference for when you’re looking to navigate the area.
Grow Your Own
All student homes benefit from having some plants dotted around the place, but established plants can be expensive – what to do? One solution is to grow your own, start by picking up some fresh herb seeds; things such as basil, coriander and parsley will all grow well indoors, look lovely and can be used in cooking, saving you a few extra quid.
