Ways to decorate your uni room without damaging the walls

Make an Instagram gallery wall with removable picture hanging strips

When you go off to uni, a lovely way to decorate your new room is with pictures of family and friends from home. So why not print a selection of your favourite Instagram pics and make an Instagram gallery wall full of all your favourites?

You can stick them on the wall with HANGables® Picture Hanging Strips (picture hanging strips that won’t damage the walls) and you’ll find loads of inspiration for how to arrange it on Pinterest. We particularly love this one!

Add a statement rug

Rugs are a brilliant way to bring an instant pop of colour to your uni room. You don’t need to stick them to anything (so there’s no lasting damage) and if you fancy changing the colour scheme of your room halfway through the year, simply get a new rug!

Turn a metal waste paper basket into a side table

Want a stylish side table that won’t cost a fortune? Here’s a quick cheat! Simply turn a metal waste paper bin upside and voilà!

Stick pictures and bulletin boards around your desk with removable picture hanging strips

Chances are you’ll be spending a lot of time at your desk while you’re at uni… So it’s well worth making it a nice environment to work in!

When you’re choosing the decor for your desk area, go for a mixture of pretty and practical. Think inspirational quotes, bulletin boards, calendars… And you can stick them all up with HANGables® Picture Hanging Strips so you won’t damage the wall when you remove them.

Get some potted plants

During your time at uni, you’ll probably also be spending a lot of time inside studying (and won’t see a lot of greenery!) So why not bring the outdoors indoors by decorating your room with some potted plants?
