If you’ve spent hours scrolling Pinterest for cosy room ideas, search no more! We’ve created a guide packed with tons of uni room décor inspo. Discover all the best pieces to make your uni room a super-stylish space, from dreamy bedding to scene-setting lighting.
How To Make Your Uni Room Cosy
Constantly switching between a study room, a dressing room, and a living room (and then back again!), uni rooms are famously versatile. Whether you’re looking for neat desk accessories or sweet scented candles, there are plenty of thrifty ways to cosy-up your space.
At George, we believe the best way to make your uni room snug is by adding a personal touch. We LOVE some cute selfies showcased on bedroom walls. They’re a fab way to remind you of your loved ones and enjoy a lil throwback too!
Wind Down With Bedding
From the late-night study sessions to THE best nights out, getting enough sleep as a uni student can be hard work! No matter how chaotic your schedule, wake up feeling the best rested with our dreamy bedding range. Tackling life admin on the comfort of your bed? We’re guilty! Tap into a playful drop of reversible duvet covers to separate snoozin’ from clearing your inbox.
If you can’t get enough of all things sustainable, our George For Good home edit has plenty of responsibly sourced bedding to dive into. We’ve teamed up with The Better Cotton Initiative, protecting both the community and the environment cotton is grown in. Snug and sustainable? It’s what dreams are made of.
Get Comfy With Cushions & Throws
Serving warmth and texture, our snug collection of blankets and throws were made for draping and scattering over your fave hangouts. Curl up with a super-soft plush throw in the evening or wrap up warm with a chunky knitted design. Get creative with colour choices by picking bright, bold throws that contrast with light duvet covers.
You can also kit out your uni bedroom with our oh-so-chic cushion sets – they’ll make leaving bed impossible! With bedding as stylish as this, slow mornings and duvet days are sure to be a regular occurrence! (Sorry, not sorry!)
Indulge In Tranquillity With Fragrances
Made for moments of calm, our candles and diffusers are perfect for popping on a shelf or side table. Of course, we’ve got a scent to please every preference, from light vanilla fragrances to exotic fruit scents.
Did you know? Our sense of smell and memory are closely linked, so teaming your study sesh with a specific scent could be a game changer. Nothing says revision better than a dreamy Lavender candle – mmm!
Create A Chilled Vibe With Lighting
With the flick of a button, carefully selected lighting will make a huge difference to your uni room. Drape fairy lights and string lights over bookcases and shelves to create an ambience ideal for chilling after a long day of learning. You can also use light shades to encourage a mellow mood and soften harsh lighting.
When party season hits, accessorise your space with a colourful disco light. You can also mix and match with a funky neon sign to set the mood – Insta photo opp right there!
Organise Your Study Area
As much as university is about enjoying yourself, studying is important too – we want you to boss them goals! Tidy space equals a tidy mind in our books, and a clutter-free study area can maximise your brainpower even on the dreariest of days.
Get organised with a desk tidy, perfect for popping loose stationery in. To make studying less of a chore, decorate your desk with cute ornaments or artificial plants. Don’t forget, a stylish desk lamp can be a lifesaver during those late-night study sessions. Just be sure to take regular breaks and have a change of scenery where possible.
