Life in a hostel is filled with fun and freedom, and lots of friends too. So, it is important that you don’t forget to keep your room neat and clean amidst all the fun, studying and exams. As a student, it can be hard to get the time to clean, dust, and sweep. But we‘re here to help you with a few tips to make your room look neat, clean, and organized.
Make your bed
Always make your bed. It will take 30 seconds but will automatically make your room feel neat. Plus, studies show that making your bed as soon as you wake up makes your day much better. And hey, it’s a single bed with one bedsheet, a couple of pillows and a comforter, right? How long would it take?
Use a rug
Brighten up your room with a funky rug, or a traditional design rug, if that is what you like. Regardless, a rug on the floor can completely transform the room, making it more cozy and inviting. And after a long day of classes, who doesn’t want to come back to a warm, comfy room?
Another way to improve the look of your hostel room is by using a few colorful pillows. If you have a roommate who thinks just like you, maybe you two can create a corner by the window as a seating area, or use these pillows on your chair or bed. Pillows will definitely improve the overall décor of the room.
One day a week is laundry day, but you can decide on the day. If you stick to one decided day, it will be easier to fall into a routine. Maybe Sunday morning can be your laundry day. Not all Indian hostels have a washer and dryer, and if you need to wash it or go out and give it to a laundry shop, decide on a day. That way, you know your pile of clothes will be demolished on that one day and it won’t turn your room into a shop’s dressing room.
Clean & dust
Another thing to remember is that cleaning and dusting is an invariable part of keeping your room neat and tidy. But, you can decide on a day. Maybe once a week or once every fifteen days is a good time to clean and dust your room. And if you have a roommate, you can always alternate chores.
For extra storage, you can get some plastic storage bins with locks or even fabric drawers that you can place on the floor or hang somewhere. These are easy and flexible storage options apart from your allotted space. You can also place these plastic or fabric drawers beneath your bed to save on space.
Posters on the walls
Want to make your room more fun and inviting? Well, you can always put up posters on the walls. Old bed sheets with stunning designs and embroidery on them are also a good idea to use on your walls and make your room less dreary and more fun.
So now, you definitely have no excuse to not turn your simple hostel room into a fun and comfortable room. Get started today!
