Have you ever wondered how you could revamp your student room, but always thought it was too expensive?
Your search ends here! Nerve has found some affordable options to transform your empty wall so that it won’t take hours.
In any student house, there won’t be a Picasso painting waiting for you there. So why not create your own art instillation?
Tapestries look great as a point of focus for the room, alternatively they can be hung above your bed as a makeshift headboard.
Worried about how to attach this to your wall? You can buy removable hooks from Wilko that won’t leave a mark when you move out.
2. DIY Flower Wall
If you want to try something different, why not create an artificial flower wall.
Simply lay the flowers out in your desired pattern and adhere them to the wall with the white tack. Don’t worry it won’t leave a mark when you take it down!
Tip! – Make sure not to put the same flowers next to each other for a more cohesive look.
3. Gallery Wall
A gallery wall is an inexpensive way of adding different prints and photos into your space and is completely customisable to the theme of your room.
Try to use a range of different sizes of frames and alternate colours to fit the design of your room, or you can use the same colour frames for a monocratic look!
Tip! – Try cutting out the shapes of your frames on paper, place them on the wall to see how they fit together before putting the frames up.
4. Wall decals
I don’t think your landlord/lady would be too happy if you started painting the wall with stencils, so why not try stick on ones?
They can be peeled off at the end of the year, make sure to get ones that say ‘no damage’ on them.
Wall decals are easy to find, Amazon do a range of affordable ones.
5. Inexpensive art
If DIY isn’t your thing, there are plenty of places in Bournemouth where you can pick up inexpensive art to refresh your room.
Primark Home and TK Maxx provide a range of different art, often under £10.
