Moving to a new city is a nervewracking experience, especially if you’re a student. The task of finding a suitable living space is a different game altogether. And once you do find one that is in your budget, it is so small that it ends even before you enter.

But, unless you’re born with a silver spoon, you’ve no other option but to settle. What you can do though, is make your PG look beautiful. Add your personal touch and let your hostel room make everyone else jealous AF.

To help you with exactly that, here are some easy tips that will let you have fun and bring out the DIY queen in you!


1. White And Pastels

First things first, if you can paint your room in pastel shades, do it. This will help you have more breathing space, and make your room look bigger.

If not, then fill it with white sheets, a mint colour chair, baby blue curtains and so on. Basically, go light on the eye so that other detailing can stand out.


2. Window Plants

Window or desk plants can make a big difference to the aura of your room. It adds that much-needed freshness to the tiny space and helps it not get depressing.


3. Fairy Lights

They can make anything look pretty! And by that I mean, even a garbage can.


4. Cutesy Banners

Simple and easy, take colourful paper and string, and turn them into bunting flags. You can write quotes, or create cool designs and funny patterns on them. Do whatever you please!

Cover those wall cracks, dirty spots and just instantly brighten up your room.


5. Cushions

Fill up your bed, nooks and corners as well as shelves with vibrant cushions to quickly colour up your space. They are comfy, and make your room look great.

If they have quotes on them, even better. Oh, also add soft toys that can double us as pillows!


6. Washi Tape

7. Glass Bottles

Have ’em drinks and then don’t throw away the bottles! Paint them, drape them in sparkle, doodle designs, write quotes on them, wrap them with jute rope… they are just magical.


8. Posters

I think this one’s a no-brainer.


9. Pin Boards

Pinboards, notice boards, cork boards, all will add a little dash of cuteness to your room. Write reminders on them, stick photographs, paste post its and just everything that makes you smile!
